Implant is the best but the cost of the treatment is more than the normal denture. You can also go for the full mouth rehabilitation you are welcome to, consult for more details.

Please consult your dentist first, if dentist find your gums healthy you should visit ent specialist. Bleeding while brushing occurs due to gingivitis (inflammation of gum) throat infection may cause bleeding but it occurs on cough mostly.

My teeths are yellow and I want to restore their whiteness without any treatment is their any other way.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
The yellow colour of the teeth is due to the wear out of enamel, the outer surface of your tooth. Hence yellow coloured dentin, the second layer is seen prominently and gives yellow colour. There is only bleaching option that can help you.

Ice munching won’t destroy your health like other addictions will. But the dental damage that comes from chewing on ice often include cracked and chipped teeth, damage to tooth enamel, problems with existing dental work such as fillings and crowns, and sore jaw muscles. You may also find your teeth become extremely sensitive to hot and cold drinks and foods, and are more prone to cavities.

Cavities might respond to hot and cold stimulus. Please get your teeth examined by a dentist. He might also take an x-ray to determine the extent of the cavity. He may ask you to go for root canal treatment if the cavity is too deep else he will remove the infected part of the teeth and restore it with a filling material.

A toothbrush with a small round head and soft bristles should be used by children as it helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Dental Emergency

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Accidents happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
Here are some tips for common dental emergencies:

• For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or water. Then, get to your dentist’s clinic right away.

• For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down
.
• If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.

• For toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth.

• For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try to remove it with sharp or pointed instruments.

When you have a dental emergency, it’s important to visit your dentist or an hospital as soon as possible.

Here are some simple precautions you can take to avoid accident and injury to the teeth:
• Wear a mouthguard when participating in sports or recreational activities.

• Avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels, beetle nut ( supari ) and hard candy, all of which can crack a tooth.

• Use scissors, NEVER your teeth, to cut things.

Most dentists reserve time in their daily schedules for emergency patients. Call your dentist and provide as much detail as possible about your condition.

I am 23 years old male and I am having sensitivity issues in my teeth. How to remedy this problem ?

BDS
Dentist, Siliguri
I am 23 years old male and I am having sensitivity issues in my teeth. How to remedy this problem ?
1.Use antisensetive tooth paste like RA thermoseal,Sequel F,Sensodyne, etc.Apply that paste on the sensitive teeth,keep it for 10minutes and then brush off. 2.Permanent cure for sesitive tooth is to cover the particular tooth with crown(cap).As sensitivity occurs when outer layer of tooth called enamel washes away resulting in exposure of destinal part, the 2nd layer of tooth.So if we cover the entire tooth with crown,u will be permanently relieved from sestivity.For this u have to visit a dentist.

There are many causes for ulcers, it might be due to trauma while removing teeth, or may be due to allergy of some medications, or due to hypochlorite which is used in rct etc etc. Consult oral medicine doctor or take second opinion from other dentist (mds)
