FAQ :
  1. I have severe pain in my mouth. What could be the cause?
    Pain in the mouth could be due to many reasons. The most common of reasons include pain in the teeth due to tooth decay. Another common cause for pain in the mouth is due to gum related issues. You should see your dentist immediately to help solve the problem.

  2. How will I know if there is any decay in my tooth/ teeth?
    If you are seeing any discoloration of your teeth, it is a sign of tooth decay. Also, food lodgment is also a sign of probable tooth decay. If the tooth decay has gone in deep, you might also experience some symptoms like sensitivity or pain. If you are observing any of the above, then it is important that you see your dentist at the earliest to get yourself treated.

  3. I have cavities in my mouth but they are not painful. So, should I get them corrected?
    Pain should not be the indicator for you to see your dentist to get cavities in your tooth filled up. If you are having signs of tooth decay, it is important to see your dentist even if there is no pain as your clinician can help stop the tooth from decaying further by providing you appropriate treatment.

  4. My gums are bleeding when I brush or sometimes spontaneously. What is wrong?
    Bleeding gums are often a signs of inflammation in the gums. Some deposits on the tooth that you cannot remove just by brushing might be causing irritation of the gums and making them inflamed. This inflamed gums will bleed when brushing or sometimes spontaneously. You will need to see your dentist for a clean up to prevent further aggravation of the problem.

  5. How often should I get my teeth cleaned? If I get my teeth cleaned regularly, will my teeth become loose?
    You should visit your dentist once in every six months for a regular checkup. During your checkup, your clinician will assess whether or not you will need a regular cleanup of your teeth. No, you will not face any such issues as loosening of your teeth due to cleaning. This is a popular misconception. Instead, your gums will remain healthy with regular cleaning and will help keep your teeth stronger.

  6. My son/ daughter is almost 7 years old and has not lost a single milk tooth while many of his/ her classmates in school have lost more than one tooth. Is this normal or does my child have any deficiencies?
    Many children start losing their first tooth by the age of about 5. But, this is not a rule that every child will lose their first tooth by this age. The milk tooth is lost when the developing permanent tooth starts growing. So, your child will lose the tooth as the tooth that is developing inside starts growing. If your child has delay in losing the milk teeth, it does not mean there is some deficiency. If you are concerned, see your dentist.

  7. My child is having crooked teeth. At what age should my child be taken to the dentist for correction of these crooked teeth?

    Ideally, your child will receive correction of crooked teeth with appropriate braces when he is about 11-13 years of age when all the milk teeth have been lost and replaced by permanent teeth. However, it is best to see your dentist when your child is about 8-10 years of age as some review and corrections might be taken by your dentist during this age too.

  8. My teenager is having pain in the last tooth. What should be done about it?
    The last tooth to erupt is the 3rd molar. This is also commonly known as the ‘wisdom tooth’ and erupts out around 17-18 years of age. It is quite common to experience some amount of pain when this tooth begins to erupt. There will be no need for any corrections if the tooth is erupting in line with the other teeth. However, in many cases, the tooth might not have space to erupt causing it either erupt partially or erupt in an unfavorable direction. This might need surgical extraction. See your dentist if your child is experiencing pain in relation to the third molar.

  9. I had to get a back tooth extracted. I don’t want to have a replacement as it is not visible to anyone. Is this ok?
    No, irrespective of whether you have lost a back tooth or a front tooth, it has to be replaced. Your teeth will remain healthy and in place if and only if it is in contact with its adjacent tooth and with its opposite tooth. If any tooth is lost, the adjacent and the opposite teeth will start moving into this space slowly and this might affect the bone support of the tooth and eventually they might begin to shake and be lost. So, it is import for you to get a replacement of any tooth that is lost.

  10. If a person has lost all his teeth, is a removable denture the only way to replace the teeth?
    Once a person has lost one or more of their teeth, then it has to be replaced. There are many options to replace lost teeth and removable dentures are one such option. Even if a person has lost all their teeth, they can have a fixed type of replacement of the lost teeth. Ask your dentist to know the options that you have to replace your missing tooth/ teeth.
