once we,re sure the infection is cleaned out we,ll seal your tooth with a temporary filling,and allow it time to heal.

Do i really need to get my WISDOM TEETH removed?????

very often a problem is arising among patients that if there is no pain in my wisdom tooth then why should i get it removed. There are various factors for which the removal should be done even if there is no pain.The wisdom teeth have an average age of eruption i.e 17-21yrs.and after this age the tooth loses its eruption potential and the various problem arises
just because your wisdom teeth aren't  paining doesn't mean there's nothing wrong. the TEETH could be stuck,or imapcted.which means they can't break through your jaw and into your oral cavity.maybe your oral cavity is too samll to make space for them.

variuos factors in which removal should be done-




INFLAMED GUMS:Tissue around the area can swell and may be hard to clean and which may further progress to infection.

JAW DAMAGE:cysts can form around new teth .if they aren't treated ,they canhollow out your jaw and may damage nerves.

DAMAGE TO OTHER TEETH:Those wisdom teeth can push your other teeth around,causing…

will my teeth get SENSITIVE after scaling(cleaning)??????

These days a major query is arising among patients is SENSITIVITY AFTER SCALING.
 i must say the results after scaling may vary from patient to patient as if in a patient deposition is deep i.e under gums "which requires deep cleaning" will show sensitivity. BUT if the deposition of plaque and tartar is only on superficial areas of teeth then there isno chance of senstivity
sensitivity is basically due to deep cleaning in which scaling along with root planing is performed,which involves the use of tools between the gums and tooth roots to remove plaque nad tartar on root surfaces.
Taking good care of your teeth after a deep cleaning treatment helps your gums heal by reducing the common triggers of pain and sensitivity.For this you need to brush your teeth with soft bristles toothbrush and  antisensitive toothpaste while your gums are sore and at the same time avoid  eating foods and drinks that set off your sensitivity.
This treatment can cause minimal discomfort which usual…

BRACES!!! will my teeth get loose and fall down...

Many of the patients ask now a days . will my teeth become loose and fall down if, i get the braces? the answer is aNO!!!!!!
 As soon as you get the braces the forces upon the teeth makes it to move which gives a feeling of it getting loose and looks like eventually it will fall down.Its a normal way of tooth movement in order to achieve treatment success.

Force level varies from patient to patient. If someone is having Gingivitis ( inflammation of gums) then the force level has to be kept low in order to achieve maximum clinical results with minimal side effects. Our 'ORTHODONTIST IN ROHINI' make sure to treat every patient accordingly.

we can't deny the fact that small changes occur after the placement of braces. the force level that is exerted on the root of the teeth will make a small amount of resorption, but that is negligible.
If one is using heavy forces (that should not be used), or some times it happen that patient insist for heavy forces as patient feel more amo…

 Cold drinks and other aerated drinks that is more common than milk or any other liquid in between adults is the main cause that led to wearing off of enamel surface. This helps in decaying process. The sugar content that is too high in it promotes decay.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Avoid these drinks, have some water through out the day at intervals. Avoid drinking aerated drinks, if must, sip by sip instead drink it in one go and rinse after that to remove acids.

3.ICE CUBE CHEWING
Chewing on any ice cube will not make you "RAMBO."Teeth are meant for chewing but not ice cubes.
