I am 31 year female. I brush and floss, use mouthwash regularly but still I have bad odour problem from my mouth. Kindly advice.

BDS, MDS, MBA (Healthcare), FAM
Dentist, Hyderabad
Dear madam, although you do all the right things to take care of your teeth and gums but the real question is and I hope that you are doing it right! bad odour or halitosis as we dentist know it is a multifactorial phenomenon! it can arise due to problems in teeth, or problems in gums or problem with your digestive system. Improper brushing although you might be doing it twice, thrice or any number of times will not help in effectively removing plaque from the teeth if it is not done the right way and as time goes by plaque turns into a hard mass called calculus! at this stage no amount of brushing can remove the calculus and it can only be removed by a professional oral scaling and prophylaxis procedure. I request you to see your dentist and allow him to evaluate the situation and he could suggest to you about what exactly the problem is and will also give you treatment options and advice on how you could effectively brush and take care of oral hygiene in a better way!

Scaling and polishing will help to remove what is called as calculus which appears as a yellow/brown thin layer adhered to your teeth. You can also try in office bleaching if you are not satisfied with the results scaling and polishing would give you.

If the mobility is not much, just scaling and polishing with little maintenance will retain the teeth. If mobility is enough, go for extraction n than capping.

Braces: Understanding Your Options

BDS
Dentist,
Braces: Understanding Your Options

A generation ago, we would not see so many adolescents with braces as we do currently. Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry involved in the use of braces to align and move teeth to form that perfect arch, has seen rapid advancements in the past few decades and continues to grow at a rapid pace.
The fundamental principle is that the teeth is held in place by surrounding elastic tissues, and minor constant forces can be applied to align them better. Small metal brackets are applied on the teeth and a wire is passed through them so that there is a constant force on the teeth. The amount and direction of force is managed by the doctor. The younger the age, the more elastic the tissue is, the easier it is to move teeth.

There are two main things to understand in terms of your options, relation of age with orthodontic treatment and the choices of braces.

Firstly, correlation with age. Over the years, more people in their 20s and early 30s are choosing to have braces. Though the teeth and more importantly the surrounding periodontium become less elastic with age, the amount of force exerted is increased and therefore tooth movement is enabled. Also, in older patients, tooth removal may be required more frequently to make space for proper alignment.

Secondly, the choices of the braces:

  1. In the earlier days, bands were placed around the teeth and a wire was then connecting all these bands to enable tooth movement. Gradually, this made way to small brackets being placed on the front surface of the teeth, and a wire running through it and elastic bands connecting the bracket and the wire. This is the most effective way of moving teeth, though not esthetic. To make it look different, the ligatures could be colored.
  2. For people who are constantly in the public eye, the metal braces were a deterrent and so lingual braces became popular. The brackets are applied on the inner surface of the teeth and are not seen easily. The amount of force here varies from the earlier one, and not all conditions can be treated by this method.
  3. The next development was the development of ceramic braces, which are also applied to the front surface of the teeth and can be used in most cases. These are more expensive than the metallic braces.
  4. Removable aligners is another option, which are trays which need to be worn for close to 18 hours a day to induce tooth movement. This is esthetic and no metal shows during talking or smiling.

So, if you want to improve your smile, visit your dentist and find out how!

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Hi. I used to chew pan masala by which there are stains on my tooths on bottom in pale red and yellow. After stoping that still I have those stains on my tooths. Is any remedy by which I can get my tooths as they was earliar.

BDS
Dentist, Bilaspur
Hello Good that you left pan masala but did you see a dentist after that for removal of stains. Also the top portion of teeth have enamel but the bottom part of teeth which are inside the gums lack enamel and are porous. The stains get absorbed in it hence reddish colour. If you want white teeth then after scaling get bleaching done.

You do not need implants if half tooth is present go for rct and cap for both upper teeth in question. Cost will be around 16k to 25k for two teeth rct and cap included. Variation if cost depends on procedures needed during the treatment and type of cap material. The added procedures may be Apicoectomy and splinting. If you go for extraction and implants cost will rise to 50k and above for 2 teeth.

How to Fix a Chipped Tooth

PGDHHM, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
How to Fix a Chipped Tooth

You are in the middle of a hot summer afternoon and decide to have some ice to cool off. Suddenly you hear a crackle and something comes into your mouth that doesn't quite taste like ice. oops! That's a part of your broken teeth! Although your first instinct is to panic, don't worry as there are a lot of things dentists can do these days to fix chipped teeth.

A tooth may chip off for some other reasons too. Decay being one of the main culprits, it erodes the top enamel leaving the tooth exposed to decay. Taking an unsightly fall or getting your teeth broken in a fight are some of the other reasons why your teeth may break o partially chip off. Here are some things you can do:

  • Take care of you chipped tooth: The first thing to do when you realize that you have a chipped tooth is to see a dentist. If you are unfortunately suffering from this problem on a weekend when a dentist near you isn't accessible, keep the jagged edge of the broken tooth covered with a sugarless chewing gum or paraffin. If you get hungry, opt for a liquid diet or soft solids that don't require chewing. 
  • Treatment: Filling or bonding that is if you've chipped a visible tooth in your frontline, your dentist will use a tooth coloured composite resin for a 'bonding' procedure. If it is one of your inside teeth, your dentist may try a simple 'filling' to fix things up. Bonding is pretty much 'gluing' bits of your artificial teeth on. The dentist clears up the surface to place the adhesive and sticks the bonding material and then hardens it into shape with ultraviolet light. 
  • Adding a crown or dental cap: This procedure is used when a larger piece of tooth chips off, it happens mainly due to decay. The dentist will chip off the edges from your broken teeth and cover it with a crown or cap to protect the tooth from further damage. The cap also acts as a cosmetic fixture not making anyone realize that it is different from your real teeth. 

Patients are generally given a choice on the material for the cap, which they can choose based on cost and cosmetics. A metal cap is the strongest, but can make you look like a villain from yesteryears, which has an evil glint in every smile. The other common options are porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic or all resin. This procedure will require more than one visit for x-rays, taking an impression of the tooth, trial for your crown and finally fixing it.
