I have consulted dental hospital for closing of gaps in upper teeth, they suggested bonding material over braces is it good option? Does it lasts long?

Hello Lybrate user, at the age of 22, it would be best to undergo orthodontic treatment for closure of spaces, where teeth will be moved slowly over a period of time within the bone, with the help of braces and the results are permanent with proper planned retention. On the contrary the bonding material may get discolored over a period of time and also chip off if not taken care properly. Though it may be a faster option it may not last long. You need to visit an Orthodontist for further details.

You can take one tab combiflam and do warm saline gargles. You can also keep one bud of clove under the affected tooth. And then show to a dental surgeon for complete treatment.

Her permanent are in state of eruption, before milk should. This is what going on in her case. This is normal, nothing to worry. Get her check up if permanent tooth takes too long to erupt after the milk tooth goes.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

On what factors should I decide which toothpaste should I use?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist,
The majority of toothpastes available at the supermarket contain fluoride. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps fight dental decay by strengthening your teeth from within. It does this by being absorbed into weakened areas of your enamel and forming a hard mineral called flouroapatite, which is resistant to acid attack – the main cause of decay If your teeth are sensitive to cold, your dentist may recommend switching to one of the specially formulated toothpastes for sensitive teeth. The available choices generally contain potassium- or strontium-based salts that act to block off the tiny passageways (dental tubules) between the nerve of your teeth and the outside surface.The process is a gradual one, and you should allow a few weeks to build up a resistance to sensitivity. Switching to a toothpaste for sensitive teeth is often an effective, conservative method of dealing with generalised sensitivity Whitening toothpastes are perhaps the most marketed dental pastes available. They work mainly via the addition of abrasives into the paste. These act to mechanically remove superficial stains caused by caffeine, smoking, etc. on the outer layer of the teeth. Unfortunately, when used excessively, these abrasives can also wear away weak portions of the tooth itself and expose the inner (yellow) layer of the tooth. We do not recommend toothpastes with harsh abrasives, as they tend to damage teeth in the long run – both in terms of lost tooth structure and, ironically, loss of brightness.If you are more prone to dental decay than other people – due to the structure of your teeth, your medical history or your lifestyle – you may benefit from a high-strength fluoride toothpaste. These products are specialised for high-risk individuals and aim to deliver more protection against cavities than standard alternatives. Likewise, if you are at increased risk of periodontal (gum) disease, a specialised antibacterial toothpaste may be an option. The decision to use either of these products should be made only after a consultation with your dentist and as part of a comprehensive treatment plan targeting your risk profile. Assigned properly, these toothpastes can be useful adjuncts to maintaining your oral health at home. Hope i cleared you on tooth pastes

What Causes Tooth Decay ?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
What Causes Tooth Decay ?

What causes tooth decay?

Bacteria and food can cause tooth decay. A clear, sticky substance called plaque is always forming on your teeth and gums. Plaque contains bacteria that feed on the sugars in the food you eat.

As the bacteria feed, they make acids. The acids attack the teeth for 20 minutes or more after you eat. Over time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, causing tooth decay.

Things that make you more likely to have tooth decay include:

- Not brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and not seeing a dentist for checkups and cleanings.
- Eating foods that are high in sugar and other carbohydrates, which feed the bacteria in your mouth.
- Not getting enough fluoride. Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making teeth more resistant to acids produced by plaque.
- Not having enough saliva. Saliva washes away food and harmful sugars, so it helps protect your teeth from decay. A dry mouth may be caused by a condition such as xerostomia or sjögren's syndrome, by taking certain medicines, or by breathing through your mouth. Older adults are more likely to have a dry mouth.
- Having diabetes.
- Smoking
- Chewing tobacco.

The mouth is home to hundreds of bacterial species with various nutritional preferences. These organisms usually enjoy proteins, and as they digest proteins several fetid substances arise. The role of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) in producing bacteria that colonize over the tongue was recently understood as a main cause of halitosis (bad breath). The most common VSCs, such as methylmercaptan and hydrogen sulfite, can be detected by using organoleptic and objective methods. Treatment includes maintaining good oral hygiene, brush two times a day and gargle with salted water after meals, homoeopathic medicines will give you permanent solution.

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.

Oral Hygiene and Mouth

Oral hygiene is important particularly for diabetics as high blood sugar levels can lead infections in the mouth. Smokers who are diabetic are at higher risk of oral infections or diseases as compared to diabetics who do not smoke.

It is better to get your infected wisdom teeth extracted to prevent further complications. (you can ask your dentist to try a root canal, if you really do not want to extract it)

Dentist,

Hi, yellow stains on teeth can be due to pan. Gutka, tobacco products, alcohol and smoking. Quit these habit if you have as they can cause serious problems like cancer. Bleaching will help you. Apply mixture of lemon juice and baking soda, rub on stained surface of teeth gently and rinse, once in a week.
