Treatment of submucous fibrosis depends upon the severity of class like class 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Class 1 and 2 are beginning stages and can be treated with some medicine and exercises. Class 2 and 3 are moderate stages and can be treated with medicine, exercise and steriods and class 5 is severe stage and requires surgery. Sub mucous fibrosis is a pre cancerous lesion and requires long term treatment and requires lot of patience and life style modification in which you have to stop any habit of eating /smoking tobacco in any form. Even nicotine patches are also not advisable. So consult you dentist for your treatment.

Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

How scared are you of root canals? what if we tell you. You no longer need to be?
Root canals are easily one of the most dreaded treatments in the world. I have seen patients compare the anxiety they feel before a root canal to things like open heart surgery and labour. The last thing you want to hear on a dental chair is the diagnosis that you need a root canal. The horror stories surrounding this dental treatment range from gruesome to excruciating.

This article is an attempt to dispel the mystery and pain associated with root canals and show you how far we have come from the horrors to the sophistication of the latest technology.

From painful to pleasing

What are root canals really?
In its simplest sense a root canal is a deep filling done by cleaning the infection from the third and innermost layer of the tooth which is made up of nerves and blood vessels.

Our tooth is made up of 3 layers the first 2 are hard and confined layers called enamel and dentin when decay affects these it is very slow to spread and easy to remove and fill within one short session.

The third layer may take 1-3 sessions to clean as the infection may have spread or collected in the supporting tooth structures.

Why are root canals considered painful?

The 3rd layer of our tooth is a nerve chamber containing soft nerves and blood vessels in communication with the rest of our body.

This is the place that communicates pain to our brain and this is why when decay or bacteria hit this soft deeper layer we experience sharp shooting pain.

Top 3 reasons why root canals used to be painful


    Improper or inadequate anesthesia to numb the inflamed nerve
    Mechanical instrumentation to manually pull out the nerve which we now dissolve and clean with automated machines
    Lack of the right medications to use within the tooth.


What happens to root canal infections if left untreated?
If this pain is suppressed with medication and not treated it can lead to an infection spreading within the bone which may later lead to a swelling with pus etc.

If this infection is left within it can eat into the supporting bone and eventually infect or affect the adjacent teeth as well.

Once your tooth measurements r taken it may take about 2 days for pfm crowns n a day more for metal free ceramic crowns. It also depends on the dental lab your dentist is linked to.

Infections affecting the throat may also affect other tissues and the uvula to swell. Allergic reactions may lead to rapid swelling of the throat and mouth (also known as edema). When this happens, it can spread and affect or infect the uvula. Injuries to the uvula can cause it to swell.To treat this,antibiotics,steroids and antihistamines are prescribed.

She is not able to eat spicy food, though she can eat and drink hot and cold beverages and food. Her teeth are NOT sensitive towards sensation. She has shown it to many dentists and some of them said that due to her pointed teeth, there are cuts in the inner part of the cheeks and that is the reason why she is not able to eat spicy food. All the prescriptions given by the dentists have been followed by her but there has been no relief till now. She has even changed the toothpaste and has also changed the toothbrush. Please guide me what to do now.

Whiter teeth

Certified Implantologist
Dentist, Kolkata
if it's dark before you put it in your mouth, it will probably stain your teeth. Brush immediately after eating or drinking foods that stain teeth and get regular cleaning done in the dentist's office. For convenient teeth-cleaning action, eat an apple.

One of my wisdom tooth is not coming out completely its like coming sideways and is having a very large gap in between which has a strange odour.

MDS Endodontist
Dentist, Panchkula
Sahil the bad odour is due to the food lodgement in the space. You can keep the are clean by using a interdental brush. But if the problem still persist then get your wisdom teeth extracted because this will lead to decay of your adjacent teeth.

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.

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.
