Dear Lybrate user, I think seed like swelling which you mention above are taste buds. Which are gate swell due to infection. Maintain oral hygiene, brush your teeth twice daily. Consult to dentist for clinical diagnosis and proper treatment.

initially I have gone through filling of one of my teeth (at the edge of the teeth) but gradually the filled material came out along with some portion of the teeth leaving a hole there. So I consulted some doctors ,but there advice is varying a lot. Some suggested me simple filling will work while other suggested me to go through RCT. So I am in dilemma that whom I should follow. Kindly help me to find which one I should follow.

Mr. lybrate-user, if your tooth decay has reached upto the level of the nerve then you may need root canal treatment with cap. Sometimes if decay is extensive but not reaching the nerve then only a filling with/without cap can be done. A small xray should help in determination of extent of decay and a proper treatment plan.

Fix Gaps Between Teeth With Corrective Treatments

Fix Gaps between your teeths at Smile Up Dental Care & Implant Center

If you have gaps between some of your teeth, you’re not alone ! 

Diastemata – the technical term for spaces between adjacent teeth – are very common. The good news is, there are several treatment options available if you’re looking to correct these spaces.

Is it necessary to fix spaces between my teeth ?

First, you might be wondering whether it’s actually necessary to correct these gaps. There are plenty of people who famously have gaps in their teeth. However, there are several reasons, apart from aesthetic preference, why you should consider treatment.

1. Difficulty Chewing – When there are excessive gaps between adjacent teeth, food tends to slip into these spaces. Because of this, food is much more likely to be trapped for long periods of time, risking infections, gum problems and cavities.

2. Speech Problems – You’ve probably noticed that gaps in your teeth (particularly your two front teeth) can cause a change in your voice. This is because air passes between these gaps, resulting in “whistling sounds.” If you’re doing a lot of public speaking, this might be an unwelcome experience!

3. Spitting – Another problem with having a diastema is the occasional spitting which occurs during speech. The reason behind this is that saliva flows through these gaps, causing you to spit whenever you speak.

4. It May Get Worse – Probably the worst thing about having a diastema is that, over time, it may get worse. Your teeth will shift as you get older, and having spaces between teeth makes them much more likely to move in unpredictable ways, and faster.

How can I get rid of the gap in my teeth ?

The good news is that these gaps can be easily corrected! There are two main corrective options available: orthodontic or cosmetic treatment.

Orthodontic Treatment – Braces or Invisalign

This is the best, and most effective corrective option for a diastema. Braces and Invisalign will gradually close the gaps between adjacent teeth. In fact, this is probably the orthodontic issue that Invisalign is most effective at correcting. (If you’re considering orthodontic treatment and are trying to decide between the two, take a look at our comparison of braces and Invisalign.)

However, orthodontic treatment takes at least six months, so if you’re looking for a quicker solution, there are also cosmetic options available.

Dental Implants

An implant is either a fixed or a removable replacement tooth that fits into the gap. This is usually best when the diastema is a full tooth wide. The replacement tooth will be inserted into the gum or bone, and sometimes attached to the surrounding teeth. Dental implants procedure has an extremely high success rate of 98% and is known for its long-lasting benefits. It is, however, slightly more costly than other options.

Cosmetic Treatment Options

Cosmetic treatment involves masking the gaps between teeth with tooth colored fillings, veneers, or crowns.

i. Bonding – For this procedure, a tooth-colored filling material is applied to your teeth, widening them so that the gap is closed. This can be done in a single visit, and the results are immediate.

ii. Veneers – Another cosmetic option is to attach veneers – very thin shells made of porcelain – over the front surfaces of your teeth in such a way that the gaps are filled. Depending on the specifics of your smile, bonding or veneers may be the preferred option. Either way, the results are immediate.

iii. Crowns – In cases where veneers or bonding are not suitable, we may recommend attaching crowns over the front teeth to correct the gaps.

If you have a diastema, and are considering treatment, reach out to us and set up an appointment. We’ll be able to tell you which options are most suitable for your situation, and what you can expect in terms of time and cost.We have a team of highly specialized and experienced Dentists to deal with all kinds of cases and to achieve the best possible results.

Our teeth should only be used for chewing purposes. Using them for performing other activities such as cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can cause chipped or broken teeth.

Why I always get bleeding while I am brushing. Please notify me any ayurveda treatment is available for this?

If dentist has suggested root canal, then you should go for it. Root canal is only the way to save your tooth.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.
