Kindly share x ray (opg or picture or iopa) if possible to suggest best treatment. Advice fixed appliances for gap between upper and lower teeth. Black gum line in canine right lower tooth- kindly share x ray (opg or picture or iopa) if possible to suggest best treatment. This treatment cannot be covered in insurance. Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored.

Hello there are many different options for closing gaps between teeth. It depends on the size of the gap and the desired outcome from a functional and cosmetic point of view. The various options include: 1. Braces/orthodontic treatment - to close large spaces between the teeth, braces are the best option. If the shape, colour and size of the teeth are acceptable, braces will give good results. It may also be possible to close the space using clear aligners. 2. Direct bonding/composite resin - it is a very simple, cost effective and conservative option for closing gaps between teeth, where tooth-coloured filling material to the side of the teeth next to the gap. 3. Veneers - if the gap between the teeth is small and some discoloration or unfavourable shape is present, this option can provide good results, as the veneers cover the whole surface of the tooth and very good cosmetic outcomes are achievable. Porcelain veneers can mask slightly larger gaps between the teeth and provide excellent cosmetic results because more modifications to the teeth are possible. However, the best treatment option for you will depend on size of the gap, shape, size and color of teeth, condition of your gums and other teeth in mouth and many other factors. Visit the dentist for definite treatment plan.

Hi lybrate-user .i need to see your oral and mouth picture first .so we can able to do the proper examination but you follow all oral hygiene instructions .it will help you a lot. Dental hygiene instructions - 1.brush twice a day with ultra soft tooth brush 2.use floss daily 3. If indental gap is more then use narrow space proxa brush 4.do warm saline rinses 3 times a day for 7 days 5.do not try to bite with your front teeth on hard surface .the chances of fracture of teeth will be more.

There is one specific gap in between two teeth (15 & 14) that, every time I eat food, the food gets stuck there. After the food is stuck, it becomes quite painful, and the pain does not ever subside by its self. However, flossing that gap and removing the debris instantly alleviates the pain. I was at the dentist, getting some teeth removed, and when I asked about this specific gap/tooth, the dentist insisted that those teeth are perfectly healthy, and those teeth can not be removed.

Feel like you should go to another dentist as previous dentist seems to have missed the diagnosis. For proper diagnosis x-ray of tooth is a must. Just by looking at it even dentist can't make out what's happening inside the bone and roots of the concerned teeth. Its mostly due to decayed teeth from in between the two teeth. Either one or both might be decayed due to which food lodgement occurs repeatedly. If one or both the teeth are decayed then a proper filling or rct and crown may help to stop the food lodgement occurrence. I would suggest you to visit more dentists to get more accurate idea for what exactly the problem is. Hope this helps.

Its a temporary remedy with decay as side effect if you do not maintain it. Go for braces to close gaps.
