Always rinse your tooth brush thoroughly after brushing, and allow it to air-dry before using it again.

I was suffered from periodontal problem and that was cured by deep cleaning and grafting a month back. Now there is big gap between my teeth after the stitch removed from the gum line. I want to know that the gums will grow back to cover the gaps between the teeth. Or some another treatment required?

Hi Aravinth, The receded gums will not grow after periodontal surgery. if it is esthetically bothering you, you have to undergo a gingival uplifting procedure. If it cannot be surgically corrected you can go for multiple crowns to cover the gaps. kindly consult a periodontist in ur area he will help you.

May need Re-root canal treatment only if the treated tooth is infected or treatment for adjacent teeth which might have been decayed. Otherwise root canal need not to be repeated again and again. It is the permanent solution for decayed tooth. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

Dental abscess is characterized by pus formation in the teeth or the gums. This infection may occur either in the gums or the tip of the tooth. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection which may enter the mouth through food, thus causing accumulation of plaque. If the plaque is not removed by following proper dental hygiene, then it may result in abscess.

The various factors that increase your chances of getting affected by dental abscess are a sugar rich diet and poor oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth to prevent symptoms of dental abscess. A diet that has too much sugar may lead to cavities that increases your risk of dental abscess.

Dental abscess may be classified into three types

  1. Periodontal abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the bone structures in the teeth
  2. Gingival abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the gums
  3. Periapical abscess: Periapical abscess occurs in the soft areas of the tooth

Causes:
Entry of bacteria through holes in the teeth may result in breaking down of the soft tissue under the enamel. The infection may result in the hole to penetrate the pulp in the teeth. The bacteria thus infects the bone present in the teeth causing Periapical abscess. The bacteria that infects as a result of plaque accumulation may lead dental abscess. This may also lead to formation of gaps in the teeth leading to infection in the inner areas of the teeth.

Symptoms
The symptoms of dental abscess are: 

  1. The teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures
  2. Pain during chewing food
  3. A persistent pain in the jaw that radiates to the ear
  4. You may experience a swelling in the face and the neck
  5. Tenderness in the lymph nodes in the neck
  6. You may experience symptoms of fever
  7. Presence of foul smelling fluid in your mouth

Is there any side effect while using the same toothpaste for years? Please tell me.

Is there any side effect while using the same toothpaste for years? Please tell me.
No as such side effect exists but the contents of the tooth paste should not be chemical based, few tooth pastes have high chemical composition so once visit your near by dentist to know more about this.

Extra teeth r generally accompanied by crowding of teeth n causes difficulty in brushing teeth n maintaining gud oral hygiene. If your not facing probs associated with multiple extra teeth such as crowding of teeth, reduced tongue space, traumatic occlusion etc. You may retain them provided you maintain good teeth n gums health. Check with your dentist if your facing such probs. If yes, get dem removed fr preventing probs with your other permanent teeth. P. S. - people tend to confuse retained milk tooth with extra tooth. Check wid your dentist.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Hi. I have undergone route canal treatment for one my tooth. Wanted to know is waring tooth cap is mandatory? or is it fine without cap.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Cap is not mandatory in all cases. If your tooth can be restored by normal filling only, you dont require cap. If tooth is badly decayed and not in state of filling, you require a cap for extra strength.

Sir my father is having pain in left tongue. Doctor advised for biopsy but in place of this we move to ayurvedic treatment and from 7 months he was feeling comfort but from last few days he again feeling the same problem. We don't want to do biopsy because this disease may increase and spread by this. Can this problem destroy by ayurvedic or homeopathy treatment. He is 76 years old. Till now we don't know exactly what is problem.

Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations • institute topical antifungal therapy if fungal plaques noticed Mouth sores are common and rarely Cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling 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.

I am 30 years old. I have bad breath problem from the last 8yrs, been checked by lots of doctors.what to do?

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Hello Lybrate user, yes braces are possible at your age too, im surprised why your doctor didn't gave you that option. Gaps can easily be closed by braces. Also there are other options like veneers and laminates for closing the gaps. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate-user, pain originate due to caries/cavity in our teeth generally when reaches close to tooth nerve. We feel that pain. Only medication will not suffice that pain atall. You have to consult a dentist and do checkup for your teeth.
