For cavity get a proper filling done & for yellow colour get a check up done if you require a scaling or not. A thorough check up is a must.

Hi, a healthy mouth doesnot depend on how expensive your toothpaste or toothbrush is. It depends on how you brush your teeth. An oral prophylaxis (scaling) followed by a proper bushing technique will solve your problem. Dr Pooja Patel Mumbai

All About Hyperdontia

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
All About Hyperdontia

Hyperdontia is a peculiar and quite rare dental problem which involves the growth of excess number of teeth. It can appear during birth and last till the primary teeth fall out to be replaced by the permanent set of teeth, or appear with the rise of the permanent teeth. If a person shows a tendency to grow more than 20 temporary teeth or more than 32 permanent teeth, he or she suffers from hyperdontia. 

Where do the additional teeth occur?
The additional teeth or supernumerary teeth can appear anywhere inside the mouth or dental arch, but the most common ones are called wisdom teeth and they grow as anterior molars after a certain age. Extra teeth in new born infants are called natal teeth. Occurrence of more than 4-6 supernumerary teeth is rare, although there have been known cases of more than 30 supernumerary teeth. 

Why does hyperdontia occur?
1. Hyperdontia often occurs in association with a few select disorders like cleidocranial dysplasia, Ehler - Danlos syndrome, Gardner syndrome, and cleft lip and palate. 
2. Although the exact cause of hyperdontia has not yet been discovered, some studies have shown that it might be a result of over activity of dental lamina during the phase of tooth development in infancy. 
3. It could also possibly be due to genetic or environmental factors. 

What problems does it pose and how can hyperdontia be corrected?
1. The existence of extra teeth often causes problems in speaking.
2. It may also cause deformation in the mouth region, and impediments in a lot of other functional activities like eating. 
3. In rare cases, the extra tooth/teeth may be agents of tumors or cysts. 
4. Therefore, treatment must be swiftly undertaken so as to remove the extra teeth and prevent rise of further teeth in the same spot. 
5. Sometimes, hyperdontia also leads to overcrowding and misshapen rows of teeth; this can also be corrected with extensive procedures.

Hello. This is the age where the wisdom tooth erupts into position. Pain and sensitiveness is due to impingement of wisdom tooth on to the 2nd molar. This condition is called impaction. The tooth can be removed by mild surgical procedure under local anesthesia. Hope this helps.

I have very dirty teeth. Some looks little brownish what should I do to make it perfect white. & strong.
These brown stains could be from inside the tooth (brown teeth could be due to a condition called fluorosis.) or outside the tooth. If they are outside the tooth you can get you teeth cleaned by scaling by visiting a dentist. If they are due to fluorosis bleaching or someother procedure depending on severity can be done. If it is mild, best to leave it alone.

Hello, thanks for your query. According to your details your cavity is a deep cavity which enters your pulp (nerve, blood supply) of particular tooth. You should go for an x ray of the tooth and may be for root canal treatment. For medicines for pain and infection you can consult me with an iopar i. E, xray of that tooth. Thanks.

My gums bleed most of the time because of this there is bad breath also please advise.
Gums bleeding is due to infection in gums. Get scalling done by dentist. Take vit c tab for one week. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs.

it depends on which type of treatment you want....removable like a plate and teeth attached to it comes in the range of 1 to 2k....fixed tooth can be a bridge where we take the support of adjacent teeth and build the missing tooth or an implant....price ranges from 12k to 30k

The third molar would be causing the problem. Clinical examination is advised to confirm the damage. Treatment can then be planned whether to save or remove the tooth.

If cut is minor then it will heal. After that he can undergo cosmetic surgery if he wants. It can be treated easily. Don't worry. Let it heal first.

Bleeding is due to gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling is the best option for plaque removal. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash three times a day after each meal. Keep your mouth clean.
