I am 30 yr old male. I had taken ceramic braces treatment at age of 25 yrs and my teeth got back to a good shape. After few months I stopped wearing retainers. But now I see that there are gaps forming between front lower teeth. But if I wear retainers again for 2-3 days, the teeth moves back. I'm looking for a permanent solution. I can send my teeth images if reqd. Please suggest.

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.

Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are tonsils, trauma from teeth, dry mouth, tonsillitis, stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of spicy n hot foods. Start some vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Increase your water intake. Avoid oilly n spicy food completely. start a course of antibiotics n visit a dentist.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

Hi. The condition you are referring to is understood by me as - nursing bottle caries. It occurs because of constant bottle feeding and not cleaning the teeth after the feed. This causes the teeth to undergo decay very fast. Clean the teeth of your child atleast with a wet cotton after every bottle feed. If possible, try to avoid bottle feed atleast reduce the number of times feeding with the bottle. It can definitely be treated. Visit your nearest dentist and get it done immediately to avoid complications of pain and infection.

Use proper brushing techniques with a fluridated toothpaste. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs and also get scalling done once in a year.

I have class one occlusion on my posteriors but have edge to edge occlusion (2mm) anteriorly. I am going for ortho treatment but they told me they will remove my mandibular incisor for creating space. Should I reconsider or go for extraction? All my teeth are healthy and no caries are present.

Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. You may consult me in person.

Treatment can only be described after x ray. If there is slight chipping in the tooth in outer layer rct is not needed. But if their horizontal or major fracture bonding can be done. And x-ray will help to decide further treatment plan.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

The black spot on teeth are due to decay. Get it removed n the cavity filled with tooth coloured material. This is the initial stage, so for it as soon as possible before the decay progress.

Toothaches can be due to decay, gum infection or sensitivity. Get your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. Cavities can be filled with or without rct. Gum infection can be treated by scaling and polishing. For sensitivity, use desensitizing toothpaste twice daily. Regarding yellow teeth, everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. You can go for bleaching.

Dear lybrate-user. You are feeling weakness in teeth probably due to gum infection which causes pain and gapping. You need to show it to a qualified dentist.
