Hello sir I am Rahul I am 20 yrs old man n I have suffering from cavity problem so what should I do.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Howrah
You need to get your cavities filled (restored) as early as possible, if the cavities are deep and have exposed the pulp then you would need to get root canal treatment (rct) done.

Should/Can we use mouthwash more than twice a day? P.S. I neither smoke nor drink.

Dentist, Ahmedabad
Yes you can use mouthwash twice thrice a day if required, you can use after having sticky foods, you should gargle before bed. You can use before or after brushing. Generally, we suggest it having two times mixed with equal quantity of water with brushing twice daily. For particular reason, you can use more time if conditions permit, for maintaining oral hygiene you should get your teeth clean n polish by dentist then use mouthwash to maintain it.

Know Everything About Tooth Extraction

Certified Implantologist
Dentist, Kolkata
Know Everything About Tooth Extraction

A healthy set of teeth is essential for good living. However, teeth problems are widespread and you are susceptible to it at any age, at any time. Though there are medications available for tooth problems, sometimes extraction of the tooth remains the only plausible solution. 

You may have to undergo tooth extraction for multiple reasons. Some of them are:

  1. Unaligned teeth: In case you are suffering from unaligned teeth, chances are that you may suffer from what in technical terms is known as "crowded mouth." In such a situation you have difficulty in eating as there is not enough room for the teeth in the mouth. Extraction of tooth, in this case, is the only way to rectify it and align the teeth in a better fashion.
  2. Infection: Sometimes if you suffer from a tooth infection, it tends to quickly spread to the pulp, affecting and damaging the blood vessels and different nerves. Though medications are available, if the intensity of the infection increases, extraction of tooth remains the only option.

Procedure: There are different steps that are involved in the extraction of teeth. They are:

  1. Local anesthesia: Like all other surgeries, administering a local anesthesia is the first step. If you are undergoing a tooth extraction, the dentist or the surgeon will inject anesthesia that will create numbness and soothe you of the ensuing pain.
  2. Cutting away gum and bone tissues: After the anesthesia, the dentist will proceed to extract the infected tooth. In order to do this, the doctor cuts away the gum and the tissues covering the tooth. After the root of the infected tooth has been exposed, the dentist would then with the help of forceps, sever it from the jaw.

After the surgery, you must observe certain precautions to expedite the recovery process. Some of them are:

  1. Take painkillers: After the tooth extraction, the possibility of suffering from an ensuing pain is incredibly high. Therefore, in most cases the dentist prescribes certain painkillers and you must take them regularly.
  2. Change the dressing: The operated area will be covered with bandages to preclude any infection. However, the dressing must be changed from time to time. If the same dressing remains for a long time, chances of an infection increase.
  3. Complete rest: After the extraction, you must take complete rest and not engage in any form of physical activity.
  4. Avoid certain foods: Just after the surgery, the operated area remains tender. Therefore, you must eat food that requires less effort to chew like soup, pudding, ice cream etc. You must also abstain from smoking and drinking for some time.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

Hi am 26 years male. I have a problem of bad breath from my mouth. Please advise me what to do.
Sometimes long term medications are also responsible for bad breath. And the other reason for this condition is due to accumulation of plaque and debris which is not easiely removed with your daily brushing, so consult nearest dentist for scaling.

You must be having a deep cavity in any of your teeth, your gums might have slipped down exposing the tooth roots. Use some desensitizing toothpaste available in the market.

The gap is cavity inside tooth due to tooth decay. Get it filled quickly to avoid further more pain and infection. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

I am suffering from teeth problem, there is a hole in my teeth, how can I recover from it?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
I am suffering from teeth problem, there is a hole in my teeth, how can I recover from it?
•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

I have a small tumor in mouth. But it not painful. What I do.?

BDS
Dentist,
Get the growth in your mouth examined by your dentist. Pain should never be considered as a criteria to get a check up done. The growth may be something insignificant but at the same time it should not be neglected as it may have a potential of becoming something serious.

Tooth grow does not depend on person. If you have tooth bud underneath gum than only tooth erupts. It is a myth that if you have more no of teeth than you chew much faster rate. How many teeth present in mouth is sufficient to chew properly.

Lubricate your gums, whiten your teeth and floss with a simple home remedy. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. Get that extra shine and improve the health of your teeth with this easy technique called oil pulling.
