Removing the food particles from the braces is necessary since they can convert into plaque if they still remain in between the braces. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily is necessary during the orthodontic treatment.

How to reduce gap between teeth? Since there are gaps between teeth which makes it awkward for me to even smile in public.

The better option is to do orthodontic treatment (braces) that will give you the best result and all the teeth will be aligned.

How do you go about getting teeth whitening? What is teeth whitening? Who can perform teeth whitening? What happens during teeth whitening at the dentist? What about home kits and beauty salons for teeth whitening? What are the risks of home kits and salon teeth whitening? What questions should I ask the dentist before going ahead?

BDS
Dentist, Faridabad
Teeth whitening or in technical terms bleaching is a dental procedure in which teeth are exposed to certain bleaching chemicals and then treated with high intensity light for those chemicals to work properly. Usually it takes 2-3 sittings to get desired results. But teeth can get stained again 6 months to 1 year after treatment. So to avoid that you should avoid pigmented food substances like tea, coffee, turmeric etc. So ask your dentist before procedure to match your current tooth shade on shade guide and then your desired shade and how many sittings you need for that shade. Kits for home use purpose take longer time and not as good as professional bleaching at a dental clinic.

What is a Dental Implant? Is It Right For Me?

Certified Implantologist, BDS

What is a Dental Implant? Is It Right For Me?
Have you ever had the dream where one or more of your teeth fall out? What do you do if you lose a tooth in real life?
One option is to get a dental implant. This is a procedure where an Implantologist surgically places an artificial tooth that’s surgically fused in the jawbone—a fantastic long-term option for tooth replacement. Decades ago, if you lost a tooth, your choices were a fixed bridge or removable dentures. Fixed bridges rely on neighboring healthy teeth as anchors, which can have a negative impact on them down the road. And, removable dentures can slip or make embarrassing clicking sounds when you speak.
A dental implant—made of titanium metal—fuses to the jawbone, serving as the root of the missing tooth. Unlike fixed bridges, which may need to be replaced two and three times during a lifetime, implants are durable and rarely, if ever, need to be replaced.

Dentist,
Hi rocky. This can be durme to various reasons. But for a primary treatment use benzocaine gel on the affected ares half an hour before the meals. Have B-comlex vitamins and lastly do give the ulcers some time and clean oral environment to heal. Avoid the spicy food at oreaent as can have the same after your ulcers heal. Regards.

I am having gingivitis since few year. I have taken treatment for it. But now the alignment of upper incisors teeth are disrupted and they are coming forward with abnormal gaping. please suggest some treatment which will help me.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Gingivitis can be treated but requires maintenance to prevent worsening of the situation. Such cases will be assessed by clinical and radiographic examination. Depending on the bone level, further management is done. Please be aware that gingivitis does not settle in one sitting. You need to see the dentist every six months and undergo procedures as and when required.

Nutritional deficiency, excessive stress & debilitating disease can cause ulcer. Exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet. Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations

During orthodontic treatment, suffering from pain and soreness in the mouth is quite common. To lessen the degree of it, the patient can gargle with  8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. It will surely dull the pain and provide some relief.

Hi sir I am glad to part of this I hope we got my solutions I have an small problem like germs and yellow sadows on that pls suggest me any tips.

For yellow stains on the tooth surface you need to go for cleaning and scaling. Follow these routines for healthier teeth - - Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. - Rinse your mouth after each meal. - Floss your tooth to prevent food impaction. - Avoid sticky and sweetened food. - Avoid taking tobacco products. alcohol and smoking. - Visit a dentist regularly every 6 months.

There are many causes of yellow or discolored teeth. A few of the most common: 1.Drinks: Coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth.. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause staining on the teeth. Even white wine is not far behind in staining our teeth yellow, because its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel.These Acidic drinks lowers the Ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2.Certain Foods: Colored candies, popsicles and other bright foods can cause staining over time. Think of it this way – if your tongue turns a bright shade of blue, chances are your teeth are getting some of that discoloration, too. Even healthy foods such as berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries) can stain teeth. Ketchup, curry and other sauces can cause staining problems over time, too. 3,Natural Aging Process: Quite simply, teeth yellow over time. It’s a natural part of the aging process that the white protective coatings wear down over time. So the longer you have your teeth, the more likely they are to become yellow or discolored. 4.Most of us are guilty of at least some of the above (and none of us can stop time). But the good news is that even if red wine is one of your vices and your teeth look yellower lately, there are things you can do to bring back the white. 5.How to make Teeth white (a)Avoid Certain Foods/Drinks When Possible: We’re not asking you to give up your morning coffee, just to reduce the intake of the above foods as much as possible. Sometimes simply being aware can help us make better choices. (b)Drink Water: After you’ve consumed a tooth-staining food or drink try to immediately follow it with a glass of water. Swirling water around your mouth can drastically help clear away the acids or staining. This simple step is free and easy, and can drastically help reduce tooth discoloration. (c)Proper Dental Hygiene: Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups help keep teeth healthy for a lifetime. Develop these habits early and you’re less likely to have dental problems down the line. (d)Teeth Whitening: The good news is that there are many options available to whiten teeth. Some can be done at home while others can take help of Homoeopathic medicines. Homoeopathic medicine HEKLA LAVA TOOTH POWDER ( WHEEZAL) Scrub teeth daily night RINSEOUT ( SBL) Gargles 20 drops in 20 ml luke warm water.Gargles 3 times daily while holding water for 20 seconds in mouth esp.after meals.

I have a long tooth, misplaced, is filing possible in a short time? If Yes, the cost can assess how much?

MDS, BDS

The procedure you want would be undertaken depending on the placement of the tooth. Because unnecessary grinding of tooth can lead to sensitivity. Please visit a dentist and get a radiograph done.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
First get the teeth cleaned from dentist. He/she will clean all teeth so your bleeding problem will be solved. After that brush properly especially lower front teeth and do flossing also. Plaque should not deposit at that area. And visit to a dentist for cleaning once in a year.

It seems you might have a deep cavity. In your front teeth. Kindly get an xray done to estimate the amount of damage. And you might have to get a root canal treatment done in the tooth.

Taking kids to the dentist is necessary to keep their teeth healthy and promote excellent oral hygiene habits. But from a child's point of view, a trip to the dentist can be a scary event -- lying on a chair in an unfamiliar room filled with unfamiliar noises and objects, all while a stranger is poking cold, metallic, and unusual instruments in his mouth. Plus, as your child's teeth continue to fall out and grow, he may take at least 10 trips to the dentist before starting kindergarten. To help ease future visits for your child (and for the dentist!), follow these steps so that he will feel comfortable and more relaxed.
