There are a few conditions that can lead to dry mouth that can further lead to burning and redness. Frequent intake of water is one way and there are salivary substitutes available that can help her keep her mouth moist. Some medications can also lead to dryness.

It completely depends upon the amount of space between the teeth. Preferred treatment always is ortho treatment as it naturally close the space but now a days cosmetic dentistry has overpowered it as its is less time consuming. Ortho treatment may take 6 months to one year but cosmetic treatments do not take more than 2-2.5 months. Moreover, it may cost between 30-60 thousand for orthodontic treatment whereas cosmetic treatments can hugely vary, starting from 20 thousand onwards.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with gum strengthening procedures. Use sensoform gum paint until then. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

If a tooth gets decayed to an extent that the inner tissue get affected, it can get very painful. See a dentist. Probably you would have to go for a root canal treatment.

Ways to Protect the Teeth of Your Little One

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Ways to Protect the Teeth of Your Little One

Children are much more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disorders than grown-ups. This is because the gum and teeth in toddlers are very delicate. Moreover, children are more attracted to sweets and other food items, which cause damage to the teeth.

Here are several ways to protect the teeth of your little one:

  1. Have a dental checkup: You should take your child to a dentist on his first birthday. Early prevention is important as any kind of problem in the teeth will be detected and this will save you from a lot of trouble in the future.
  2. Teaching healthy habits: Brushing is very important and you should teach your child to brush regularly, more than once a day. Before the development of teeth in your baby, you should brush his gums gently by using water on a soft baby toothbrush or with a clean and soft cloth. After developing teeth, brushing must be practiced with delicate toothbrushes and fluoridated toothpaste. If several teeth touch against each other, you should use flossing. Brushing is essential before going to bed, and no food should be taken after brushing.
  3. Prevent "baby bottle decay": You should not let your child go to sleep with a bottle of juice or milk. The sugar contained in these liquids sticks to the child's teeth, which activates bacteria and may lead to tooth decay.
  4. Avoid giving juice to your child: Juice may be healthy for the body, but it leads to tooth decay in little kids. The amount of regular juice intake should never be above four ounces.
  5. Avoid excess use of a sippy cup: Sippy cups enable children to shift from bottles to a glass. However, all day long usage of sippy cups should be restricted as it may cause decay on the front and back portions of teeth, when the drinks are rich in sugar.
  6. Be careful about sweet medicines: Many medicines meant for children are sugary and stick to the teeth, increasing the chance of cavities. Several antibiotics cause overgrowth of Candida or yeast and cause an oral disease known as oral thrush. This disease causes creamy patches on the tongue. In case your child needs sweet medicines, brushing should be increased.
  7. Stop using a pacifier by the age of 2 or 3: Pacifiers are good for children, but using pacifiers for a long period of time affects the lining of teeth. The shape of the mouth may also change. Hence, do not let your child use pacifiers after 2 or 3 years of age.

Children are quite prone to teeth disorders and decay in the teeth. Hence, measures must be taken to protect the teeth of children from any kind of disorder.

I have pain in my teeth.what can i do?

BDS
Dentist,
I have pain in my teeth.what can i do?
Pain could be because of tooth decay. Only the symptomatic relief with medications will not stop the problem from worsening. Tooth decay has various stages which starts with the first layer of tooth i. E enamel (hardest substance of the body) at this point you will not feel any pain. 2nd stage- decay reaches dentin where you feel sensitivity but still won't feel any pain. At both these stages teeth can be saved with fillings. 3rd stage- decay reaches the pulp (nerves) where you feel excruciating pain. At this stage, teeth can still be saved with root canal treatment where nerves are removed from the teeth and filled with guttapercha material and the teeth are restored. The sooner you get the treatment done the more the life of the teeth. After this we have to go for extraction (removal) of the tooth. So consult the dentist immediately to assess at what stage it is, get it treated and put a stop to tooth decay at this point.

Is it possible to take painless gum scaling treatment using advanced laser treatment.

BDS, MDS - Pediatric Dentistry , Certificate Course in Conscious Sedation
Dentist, Hyderabad
Is it possible to take painless gum scaling treatment using advanced laser treatment.
Pain is very subjective - different people react to it differently. Having said that, a procedure such as scaling can vary from painless to mild sensitivity to severe pain depending on the condition of the gums and pain threshold of the individual. If your gums are already inflamed and there is pre-existing gingivitis, you can expect mild to moderate sensitivity during scaling (even with laser assisted scaling). This can easily minimized by using an anesthetic gel or cream which the dentist will take care of. For advanced gum disease, your dentist will give you an injectable anesthetic to make sure the procedure is not painful.

If used too frequently, it can erode the enamel of teeth and you may end up with sensitivity to cold and hot drinks & food items.

I brush daily twice a day, still my teeth are yellowish. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist,
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: -foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables -tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth -poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain-producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discoloration. -medications- mouth rinses and washes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Antihistamines (like benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and drugs for high blood pressure also cause teeth discoloration. You can go for bleaching if you want bright white teeth. It will help definietly.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
