Go for it. In this age of 80 years, we don't prescribe costly treatments such as implant supported dentures and it is not compatible too. I assume your remaining teeth are also at the verge of extraction, if so, let it be removed completely and fabricate denture. If there are some useful tooth, partial denture or bridges can be fabricated.

There is always an option of getting the tooth removed. But wisely you are saving it by root canal. Whatever treatment is required your doctor will update you d same. If you feel you can visit another dentist and see.

The Differences Between Mens and Womens Oral Health

The Differences Between Mens  and Womens  Oral Health

There are Obvious differences between men and women. But what you may not realize is that these differences extend into the world of dentistry and oral health as well. For instance, did you know that women are more likely to visit their dentist regularly, while men are more prone to visit only when something needs attention?Read on to discover more interesting facts about the differing oral health habits of men and women.Women brush more than men on average, women are over 8% more likely to brush their teeth twice every day than men are. 

Men skip brushing here and there while women prove to be more vigilant about their brushing habits. Women are also nearly 10% more likely than men to brush their teeth immediately after eating meals.Men put themselves at more risk than women. When it comes to keeping your mouth and overall health in check, there are certain things you should just stay away from. 

Chewing tobacco products, smoking cigarettes, over-consumption of alcohol, and exposing yourself to other carcinogens are extremely harmful activities that can result in many health issues, including oral cancer

Men are more likely than women to consume these kinds of carcinogenic products and do so at higher rates than women, which means they are more at risk of developing oral cancer, gum disease, and other health issues.

Women see the dentist more often Women are more likely than men to visit their dentist and, while they are there, make a future or follow-up appointment that they intend to keep. It’s been proven that men often visit their dental professionals only when it is absolutely necessary and therefore receive far fewer dental checkups and cleanings than women.Men experience more dental issues Because women are generally more proactive regarding maintaining their oral health and see their dentist regularly, they on average experience fewer dental issues such as gum disease, tartar buildup, and bleeding gums when compared to men. 

Often, oral diseases show very few warning signs that can be identified by someone who is not a dental professional. As men don’t necessarily see their dentist as regularly for screenings, problems such as gum disease, oral cancer, decay, and other oral health issues can sometimes go unnoticed until the disease has undergone advanced stages. For this reason, men have been proven to be more likely than women to develop these issues. This is why being vigilant about receiving regular dental checkups is essential in ensuring your ongoing health.Women often experience sudden spikes in oral issues 

As only women go through pregnancy and menopause, women of course experience more concentrated elevation and changes in general in hormones. This spiking of hormones can cause changes in oral health with nearly 75% of women developing gingivitis while expecting, and with some experiencing Burning Mouth Syndrome while going through menopause. Increased visits to the dentist during these times is a great way to keep oral health in check and have any concerns dealt with before they develop into larger issues. 

Men experience more tooth trauma It’s been proven that, in general, more men play sports that involve intense physical contact with other players such as tackle football, rugby, water polo, wrestling, and boxing. This greatly increases their chances of colliding with other people or sports equipment and chipping, cracking, or losing teeth altogether. 

These chances increase even more when coupled with the fact that men are less likely than women to wear mouth-guards or other protective gear when playing these activities. Having a mouth-guard fitted or buying one from a local pharmacy is the best way to protect teeth and jaw bones from damage like this.

Oil pulling i.E. Sloshing your mouth with coconut, sesame or sunflower oil for 15 minutes and then spitting it out can give you whiter teeth. It acts as a flossing agent and lubricates the gums to provide that extra shine to your teeth.

I am a 27 year old guy and facing mouth ulcer from past 4 years what should I do.

dentist
Dentist,
Ulcers may have diff reasons for occurrence. They may be due to over stress, sleeplessness, change in food habits, due to some medications etc. Kindly take more fruits intake. Avoid spicy food along with that take vitamin tabs for a week. One tab for a day will b sufficient. Use ornigreat mouth gel or dento gel for applying over the ulcers. Visit your near by dentist to take advice.

gum is more important for the tooth to be strong.. don't forget to massage your gums using finger while brushing.. avoid sticky foods to reduce plaque formation which leads to calculus deposit and gingivitis..every 6 months visit a dentist and undergo scaling if needed..

After eating, never use a toothpick to clean in between the teeth

Benefit of flossing
For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.

Mam get your teeth examined by a dentist. Bad breath is caused by deposition of plaque and calculus which has to be removed by the dentist. So please do not waste time and get your teeth cleaned. Regards

How Safe Is Tooth Whitening?

How Safe Is Tooth Whitening?

Nobody is happy with their teeth and everybody wants whiter, brighter teeth. In the last few decades, tooth whitening is one of the most commonly done cosmetic dental procedures. Majority of these people are in the age of 10 to 25, who are very conscious about their looks.

What needs to be understood is that dental whitening is permissible to a certain extent. Not many people realize this and continue to use teeth whiteners even after the desired result is achieved in an effort to get it a couple of more shades lighter. This is something that we need to watch our for. 

Safety of tooth whitening: Some of the supposedly unsafe aspects of tooth whitening are most products used currently are tested both on patients and in laboratory and are proven to be completely safe. However, overuse or misuse of these products can lead to issues. The active chemical ingredient in most of these products is hydrogen peroxide. Most of the products contain about 10% carbamide peroxide, which breaks into hydrogen peroxide and urea. There are claims that this is carcinogenic. However, this is not the case and there is no strong correlation. Also, if the application is done correctly, there is very minimal exposure to hydrogen peroxide directly.

The second issue that most people associate with tooth whitening is  tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Both these symptoms are directly related to the percentage of carbamide peroxide. It is shown that products with more than 10% produce more teeth sensitivity and gum irritation than those that contain less than 10%. Improper tray selection can lead to gum irritation. Also, patients who are overzealous and go about whitening their teeth further can end up with severe sensitivity. The explanation in these cases is the enamel is worn off by the chemical leading to exposed dentinal tubules which, even when exposed due to caries, can cause sensitivity.

Listed below are some ways to avoid or reduce sensitivity: 

  1. When using the bleaching tray applicator, use it only for the recommended period of time. Do not keep it longer to make the teeth whiter.
  2. Use a paste that is meant for sensitive teeth. The potassium nitrate in these will help relieve sensitivity.
  3. Use a product with fluoride so that the teeth can remineralize. This can be used before and after tooth whitening for up to 4 minutes.

It is advisable to avoid tooth whitening in some cases like the following

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Breast feeding
  3. Ceramic crowns or bridges in the front teeth - these cannot be bleached
  4. Gingival disease with gum recession and exposed root - the sensitivity is sure to quite high

To avail the best results, always use clinically proven products under the supervision of a dentist.

Hello. I am currently undergoing tooth treatment, as I had one root canal and multiple cavities to be removed. I am almost done with the treatment. However, I get very very bad pain in both side lower teeth either during late night or very early morning. This happens even when I slp in noon and get up in evening. The pain at times is unbearable but lasts only for few mins. I did asked the dentist about the same, however he said this is called sensitivity and he will suggest a toothpaste for the same. I am really worried bcz pain at tyms is unbearable. Kindly suggest if there might be other reasons for it. And what can be possible causes of pain at such odd times a and what can be measures to overcome that. Thanks in advance.

once a tooth is root canal treated than you will not have any sensation to the tooth no hot or cold coz the nerve of the tooth is amutated in this procedure. The pain in the tooth occur for 3 days post treatment but I think your rct is not done properly why don't you cross examine your treatment by other dentist if your pain is related to the treated tooth. If your pain is in nontreated tooth than that tooth also require rct as you have mentioned you have many cavity teeth.
