Professional cleaning along with few medicines will surely help you. There is no natural way as such. But your home care will be able to maintain health throughout life. Can't say its dangerous but its very harmful to your teeth, sooner or later it will cause mobility in your teeth. So better the earlier, consult the dentist.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

Wisdom Teeth - When To Get Them Removed

BDS
Dentist, Faridabad
Wisdom Teeth - When To Get Them Removed

The last molar teeth in the mouth are called as wisdom teeth. While in some people they erupt completely into the mouth and function with no problem whatsoever, in others, they remain embedded in the bone, erupt incompletely, erupt at an angle, or are covered by bone or a flap of tissue. They are absent in many.

Of late, dentists recommend removal of wisdom teeth, more a preventative than remedial measure. Some of the reasons for wisdom tooth removal are listed below-

  1. Impaction: Often, wisdom teeth do not have enough space to erupt in their normal position. This can only be evaluated properly on an x-ray. If the x-ray shows that the tooth is unlikely to erupt because of being blocked by a root or bone, this needs to be removed.

  2. Pericoronitis: The tooth partially erupts into the mouth but is covered by a flap of gum. This attracts food and bacteria to accumulate, leading to decay and infection, a condition called as pericoronitis. Very common in the lower wisdom teeth, it leads to severe tooth pain, painful swallowing and swelling of the lymph nodes. This is the most common cause for wisdom teeth to be removed. An x-ray will reveal the tooth to be infected and sometimes periapical abscess may also be present.

  3. Cysts: Impacted teeth can develop fluid-filled cysts which can cause severe and even permanent damage to the jaw bone, adjacent teeth and nerves. Dentigerous cysts are the most common type.

  4. Alignment: Misaligned wisdom teeth exert a constant mild pressure on the adjacent teeth which can hamper the alignment and reverse the effects produced by braces. The bite may be altered also, thereby necessitating removal.

  5. Adjacent Tooth Damage: If the malposed wisdom tooth is causing pocket formation or decay in the adjacent teeth, it is time to get them removed.

  6. Recurrent Sinus Infections: With their proximity to sinuses, there could be constant pain and pressure and infection of the sinuses. This is another indication for their removal.

However, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. If they have erupted fully, are healthy, produce a good bite, and can be cleaned easily, they do not require removal.

During the teenage years and through 20s, check with your dentist on the health of the wisdom teeth. X-rays can be taken to monitor them and for early identification of problems. If they need to be removed, it is easier to take them out when you're young. The bone surrounding the impacted tooth is less dense, and therefore easier. The ability of the body in general and the jaw bones in particular to heal is also better at a younger age.

Hi, the only difference between gutkha & panmasala is that pan masala does not contain tobacco. Rest all ingredients are same eg areca nut, slaked lime, flavouring agents etc. Bad effects of both just the same. Please avoid at all costs.

Respected doc I have also pain in my wisdom teeth from 3 days. what I do to relief? please help me.

If the wisdom tooth has erupted fully and in a proper position then we can save it by dental cement filling. If the cavity is deep and near or into the pulp then we can save it by root canal treatment. Ideally we should save natural tooth structure if its fits in above criterias. If the wisdom teeth has erupted in a such way that it's disturbing other tooth structures and we don't have any option left for saving it then only you should go for removal. The wisdom tooth usually causes pain because of its uneven position distrubing adjacent teeth and some times swelling of the tissues around the tooth causing pericoronitis ( i.e inflamation of the surrounding soft tissues ) causing pain. Wisdom tooth which is usually considered as an extra tooth having no role in mastication (i.e chewing of food) On other hand removal of wisdom tooth have much advantages rather than any disadvantage.. Retaining wisdom tooth some times results in food lodgement within and between adjacent tooth ,results in caries ( decay ) of the adjacent tooth. So for improper erupted wisdom tooth, removal is the only and best available option to the date. Which in turn also helps in preserving other tooth structures.

There are many causes for ulcers, it might be due to trauma while removing teeth, or may be due to allergy of some medications, or due to hypochlorite which is used in rct etc etc. Consult oral medicine doctor or take second opinion from other dentist (mds)

Hi lybrate-user. First of all as a home remedy you can use luke warm saline rinses 3 to 4 times a day. Use a benzocaine gel and apply it over the affected side gums so tha you could eat. Lastly the reason for oain during erruption can be a lack of space in your jaw baone for the erruoting tooth. So I wud advice you to visit your dentist for a clinical examinal and have a radiograph of the affected tooh so that he could give you a more clear insight of the problem. At most you wuld have to get it extracted bt it is the last resort. So dnt worry. Pls avoid pain killers for the same until the oain is unbearable. Regards.

Don't rush, when you brush. For maximum results, brush your teeth for at least 2 to 3 minutes.

Use soft bristle toothbrush, clean the entire surface of each quadrant one by one, use bristle at 45 degree angle, go for scaling every six month, use dental floss and 2% chlorhexidine mouthwash on regular basis, in case of yellow teeth u can go for bleaching or veneering but keep in mind bleaching may be associated with sensitivity.

Always wear a full-face helmet or a mouthguard while playing sports. It will protect your mouth from any unnecessary injury.

I sleep with an open mouth which s causing my teeth be pushed forward. What should I do to prevent this habit?

BDS
Dentist, Lucknow
I sleep with an open mouth which s causing my teeth be pushed forward. What should I do to prevent this habit?
Sleeping with open mouth is generally indicative of mouth breathing and no doubt the result will be front teeth pushing forward. This is because your lips always puts your teeth movement under control in normal person who does not have this habit have normal appearance of teeth. Mouth breathing / sleeping with open mouth can be due to many reasons such as developmental disorder of breathing system, unconscious habit. Short lips etc. If there is any problem with breathing system then you need to visit and ent surgeon for it treatment accompanied by dental treatment as in such cases only dental treatment will not be effective. If it is due to any childhood habit then a dentist will give a appliance to stop mouth breathing. Once your problem of mouth breathing is solved you can go for braces/orthodontic treatment for proper aligning of your teeth.

Hi lybrate-user, There should not be any problem if the complete tooth has been done. But there may be a chance of dry socket which may have formed due to blood clot dislodgement after extraction. Do not take any antibiotics only take painkillers. It will resolve in 15-20 days.
