I'm 23 and most of teeth has small decay. I went to a local hospital and they treated my teeth by removing the decay area and apply some white material and they call the method as compositing. It has been done just months ago and now in some teeth, tiny dots of decay appear from the area around the filling. Now my question is did the doctors did not composite well or my tooth starts to decay again slowly on its own again?
The Dentist can have done the best possible job but if you haven't changed your diet then new decay can occur. Eating a lot of sugary foods and drinks and snacking between meals isn't good for your teeth. A regular brushing regime with a fluoride toothpaste is also needed. There are a lot of hidden sugars in foods. Try creating a food diary for a week and highlighting all the foods that contain sugar. It may be worth discussing your diet with your Dentist who will be able to offer more advice. Another good tip is to try chewing sugar free gum after meals and liminting sugary foods/drinks to just meal times. Only drink water or milk in between meals.
The Doctors removed part of gum on 2 Molar teeth thats on my left lower side. They did this as they did not have the sufficient height to do the crowning on both the tooth. So now my concern is even if they do the crowning will the tooth will stay intact as the gum is removed?
And Can I chew meat like before as I eat foods quite a lot.
It may be that they didn't get all of the decay out before putting composite on your teeth and that's why there is more starting to appear. Removing gum is never a good idea, doing this leaves room for bacteria to get under the crown and decay the tooth and especially as you age because our gums just naturally recede. You will be able to eat as always just maintain good oral health. Brush 2-3 times a day, thoroughly but gently with a soft toothbrush. Floss thoroughly but gently every night and use a toothpaste containing fluoride and a mouthwash that helps strengthen your tooth enamel and kill bacteria. Good oral health is key to healthy teeth and gums.
The doctor did the crowning yesterday for 2 teeth (Lower molars[36,37]) and it feels strange in my mouth. I can rest my jaws together but it hurts, around my jaws(muscles). The doctor said that it has to get used to the crowing as there was no height before for the lower teeth to be together with the upper teeth. What shall I do now?
I'm 24 year old.I went to the hospital for correcting my teeth arrangement yesterday.The Doctor said that it takes 2 years for the treatment to be complete.And we have to pull two of your tooth as they overlap each other.
Now my question is , is there a way that doesn't involve pulling the tooth out?
And does it really takes 2 years t complete the treatment?Please help.....
