The braces treatment depends on the severity of malalignment. Moreover it also depends on the dental setup. As far as I know in our area colleges of charitable setup charge around 8-10 thousand and private institutes and clinics charges vary from 15 thousand to 40 thousand.

Its recommended to go for a root canal treatment now because swelling can increase and it can be more painful. That will affect your exams also. So its better you go for it. It wont take much time.

Is teeth cleansing done by dentist important? Is there any other solution to it which can be done at home.

Is teeth cleansing done by dentist important?
Is there any other solution to it which can be done at home.
Yes teeth cleaning done by dentist is very much important. Through home remedies you cannot remove the calculus completely. There will be some calculus below the gum line which you cannot see. Dentist can thoroughly clean your teeth on all surfaces which you can't do by yourself. So please go for a dentist for cleaning.

Yaa if the teeth root are there in the bone then go for the rct. If totally lost from the root then go for the implant or the bridge. No need to undergo any medicine but if pain is there then take following medicine tab-enzoflam 2 times in a day.

It may be rhanula i.e. Cystic collection of saliva in salivary glands. Antibiotics may not help you. Surgery to remove that swelling will be ideal treatment.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

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.

Extraction Is It the End or Beginning of a Dental Problems?

Extraction Is It the End or Beginning of a Dental Problems?

Removal of teeth is gradually not the first option for a lot of dental issues. However, a large number of dental infections and other causes end in extraction. The front teeth, because of their visibility, are more likely to be replaced. The back teeth often go un-replaced, though they play a higher role in terms of food digestion and function. In many patients, reasons for impaired bite and crooked tooth are traced back to failure to replace a removed tooth. (Learn more to maintain healthy teeth)

Let us look at the some of the issues as a result of not replacing a missing tooth:

  1. Reduced chewing/digestive efficiency: The back teeth play a significant role in chewing the food and contributing to the initial stage of digestion. The salivary enzymes play a significant role in digestion when the food is chewed and removal of back teeth tends to make people swallow food faster than if good amount of chewing were to happen. Studies show that loss of each posterior tooth (molars especially) reduces tooth efficiency by 10%.
  2. Malocclusion: A malocclusion happens due to the empty space created, into which 3 teeth are trying to move. The tooth before and after the empty space tend to slowly tilt towards the empty space in between. Also, the opposing upper or lower tooth supra erupts into this space.  Each tooth plays a critical role in maintaining the adjacent and opposing tooth in place, which is lost when a tooth is not replaced after removal.
  3. Bone loss: The tooth also is essential for maintaining healthy bone, and if not replaced, it can lead to accelerated loss of alveolar bone.  Good bone support is very essential for construction of dentures, especially in old age, when complete dentures which are almost always removable need to be done. This is true especially in the lower teeth, where denture retention is a big challenge.
  4. Extra pressure on other teeth: Not replacing a tooth puts additional pressure on the remaining teeth, leading to accelerated bone loss and wearing off of the enamel.
  5. Esthetics: There will be a sinking in of the face when back teeth are not replaced, leading to a puckering.

So, the next time, tooth loss is inevitable, ensure you plan how to replace it in the earliest possible time period. The more it is delayed, the more difficult it is to replace it and the more expensive it will turn out for the patient. Fixed dentures or removable dentures can be the options, depending on age, food habits, finances, etc. Implants also could be another option, which is the new-age solution for replacing teeth.  A detailed discussion with your dentist, ahead of removal will help you plan better.

It takes time to heal. 2016 revision of the clinical practice guideline for the management of candidiasis lists a large number of specific treatment regimens for Candida infections that involve different Candida species, forms of antifungal drug resistance, immune statuses, and infection localization and severity normally a dentist would prescribe an antifungal cream like candida containing clotrimazole if they do not work then, fluconazole is the proven treatment. In severe cases amphotericin B will be prescribed also it is important your mother uses chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly. And in case she is wearing dentures she should wash them and keep them clean also. And she should not be on any steroid treatment etc. Also it is importa if it doeant get treated.
