In case you were talking about covid 19, it has nothing to do with baby planning. Plan whenever you want.

Cavities cannot be permanently removed by any medication. You need to get restoration/filling done by your dentist. If the cavities are small, it can be filled/restored. But if the cavities are large and involve the pulp then rct (root canal treatment) has to be done. Your dentist will examine your tooth condition and also take an x-ray and then decide what would be best treatment for you. Meanwhile, please maintain a proper oral hygiene. Brush twice daily rinse your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Do warm salt water rinses. Floss hope this helps. For further queries you can contact on code nv6172. Take care.

Hello, it is not good to lose so many teeth at this age. Pls visit a dentist who will thoroughly check all your teeth and will advice you the treatment needed as per the damage. Sometimes a filling or some times rct is required depending upon the extent of decay. If some teeth are already lost as you stated then you must get them replaced by artificial means. With the revolutions in the field of dentistry we have many advance treatment options to replace missing natural teeth. Pls note a lost natural teeth if not replaced for long duration may lead to the shifting of the adjacent and opposing teeth in the empty space which disturbs the overall function. Moreover unreplaced missing teeth leads to bone resorption which has a remarkable effect on the appearance of face. You may get a full mouth opg xray and share it with me for a better opinion maintain a good oral hygiene, healthy lifestyle and dietary changes to prevent further progress.

So far, there is no vaccine available that prevents dental decay. Best is to keep your mouth clean by proper brushing and rinsing. This can be added by using mouthwash twice a day.

Dear lybrate-user, vitamin c improves gum health and immune response. Yes you can take it regularly as it is water soluble vitamin, try to maintain your hydration. Also, you should wean your baby from breastfeeding because it may cause early childhood caries in your kid. Have healthy and happy motherhood. Best regards.

Hey there, you need to visit a dentist when the conditions are favourable. If restorable, get filling or rct done or get the tooth removed which will be decided after clinical examination and x-ray. Brushing twice can prevent caries but if you have cavity in a tooth it needs to be treated. For personal query kindly use my doctor code gm2c5d.

Hello Lybrate user. It is a great misconception that cavity fills by its own. You need the cavity to be restored otherwise infection will spread more in the affected tooth. .you need to expail in detail about the rct treated tooth. Whether there was capping on it or not. Photograph of that affected tooth region is required. For detailed diagnosis consult me through chatbox.

Dear Lybrate user I can understand your concern but whether filling is an option or not it can be said only after a clinical examination and x ray. Generally when the infection has approached to the deeper layer pulp of a tooth then rct is suggested. You have not mentioned which tooth front or back are effected yet I would tell you here that with little variations sometimes, the earliest permanent tooth erupt at the age of 6 years. Your child is only 3, one cannot depend on antibiotics for so many years. You can send me the pictures and xray if you have .you can use my code sg38f5.
