Better get your check up done from a dentist, rather then taking tablets- if so try out with Ketorol DT in emergency.

Hi, Ms. Lybrate-user toothcaries affecting a tooth can be treated only at the clinic. But prevention can be done at home. Preventive measures 1. Daily twice brushing your teeth. 2. Using mouth wash (chlorhexidin) after brushing 3. Cleaning your mouth after every meal / sweets or anything.

My moler tooth have turned blue. Around 5 years back, I went to a dentist and she treated it with root canal. At that time I can feel/sense pain In my tooth, but as per her I shouldn't feel a thing as she has removed all the pulp and the tooth is basically disabled (in lack of better term to describe it). What's the treatment now, sometime there is pain in the tooth. It's an upper moler. What kind of testament is advised now.

Pain after a root canal can be due to reinfection or crack in the tooth or inadequate cleaning during root canal. We would need an x-ray and examination to decide whats causing the pain. If the tooth structure is still intact and there is no crack - re root canal can be done if its a crack in the roots it would go for extraction.

Mouth smelling because of small food particles stuck in throat and feeling little inconvenience. How to get rid of it. Should I contact doctor or is there any home remedy. Please help me. Thanks,

It could be due to sinusitis, tonsillitis, gum diseases, gastritis, caries in teeth or gap in between the teeth. Smoking and chewing tobacco can leave chemicals that remain in the mouth and cause smell. Get your self checked by a dentist too. Hope this helps u.

Change your brush. Visit a dentist and get scaling done. If you have cavities or wisdom teeth problems get that resolved.

Dear, permanent teeth are generally not milky white. Different people have different shades of teeth named as a-d series. There should be no stains over teeth. If there is a yellowish layer of calculus you should go for ultrasonic scaling.

Respected, I always get stucjk mouth ulcers. It really pains alot, due to which I cannot eat food properly an loosing weight. Please provide some useful tips to get rid of these mouth ulcers ?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Hi hearing your complain I think you have certain vitamin deficiencies in your body if you are suffering from repeated ulcers. Ulcers are of many types 1 Stress ulcer: which occurs repeatedly at a span of 7 days and main reason is stress and work load in your life. 2 traumatic ulcer: it occurs due to biting on cheek or toungue accidently during eating these ulcers are not repititive 3 non- healing ulcer: it occurs because of some habits like smoking, chewing tobacco. Looking at your complain I think you are suffering from stress ulcers. Treatment: you can take multivitamin tablets like tab b-folcin plus once a day for 30 days, mucopain gel to be applied on the ulcers twice for 10 days, avoid hot and spicy food for some days. I hope my advice would be helpin you thank you

If a Back Tooth Is Lost, Will You Miss It?

If a Back Tooth Is Lost, Will You Miss It?

According to studies, the majority of the world population has at least one missing tooth, when it comes to dental health. Usually, one of the back teeth is missing. Most people do not care about a missing tooth as it is not visible and does not affect one's image. However, a missing back tooth is a matter of concern, and it matters. This is because of the tooth's function and also because bone loss occurs when a back tooth is lost.

Wisdom Tooth: Wisdom tooth or 3rd molar extraction The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the final set of molars to erupt. Not everyone keeps these teeth, nor are they necessary for having a healthy, beautiful smile. In fact, they can cause harm if they do not come in properly. When these molars come in, usually between the ages of 16 and 20, there may not be enough room left for them to erupt. As a result, they can emerge at an angle, they may crowd the mouth and sometimes they don't fully emerge. This can lead to future oral health problems like infections and pain. So, it should be extracted.

Effects of a lost back tooth: A lost back tooth should not be ignored, even though it did not cause you much inconvenience initially. The problems start occurring slowly and when they reach a fatal stage, a lot of dental problems are likely to occur. A lost tooth causes several problems and damage to your oral health and appearance if you leave it unattended. 

Here are the negative effects of a lost back tooth:

  1. The alveolar bone, which surrounds the teeth requires a good amount of regular stimulation for maintaining health. The lack of stimulation will slowly make the bone waste away.
  2. With a missing back tooth, the bone width is likely to decrease by 25% within a year and will continue decreasing with the passage of time.
  3. The bone loss which occurs due to a missing back tooth will also cause problems in chewing food, and the back molars are designed especially for chewing and grinding food. Your speech will also be affected because of a missing back tooth.
  4. Extensive bone loss can even lead to negative changes in the facial shape. The facial shape also collapses in some cases. This will affect your appearance and will lead to low self-esteem and self-confidence.

Dental Implants: an ideal remedy for a lost back tooth: The best remedy for a missing back tooth is to get a dental tooth implant. Dental implants work effectively to maintain the bone structure. This is because the implants are fused directly into the bone. The bone can function properly and stay healthy after a dental implant is fused into it. You should consult a dentist to choose the best type of dental implant to replace your lost back tooth. Once the implant is installed, your dental functioning will return to normal soon. Little time is required to get adjusted to the implant.

If a back tooth is lost, you will surely miss it. A lost back tooth can affect your overall dental health, may cause bone loss and can even change your facial shape. Dental tooth implants should be used to replace a lost back tooth for maintaining good dental health.

Capping is just making a strong protection cover to your weak and damaged tooth, and if the tooth is sound and strong enough to bear a cap over it, then this is best for the tooth.

Fruits and vegetables which require continous biting like apples, carrots and corn should be avoided as it can become quite difficult while the braces are on.
