What is the treatment of caries on front teeth?

What is the treatment of caries on front teeth?

Same as regular, but: Dental caries are rx same way regardless of which tooth involved. However, if it tooth is in or near the front and shows whenever you smile (do that often, please), cosmetic dentistry becomes involved and maintaining the color with whatever material is used becomes important. (during the civil war, the only thing that got u out of serving was missing 4 front teeth (unable to fire rifle): 4f!

The edge of my front teeth are translucent and have small vertical lines. I hate how they look. How do I get rid of them? Would a topical treatment help?

Translucent with line: Teeth that are thin on their edges, especially from bruxism & wearing away of incisal enamel may appear translucent. The lines you mention are probably surface enamel imperfections we call craze lines. Craze lines generally do not pose any great risk and can be left. However, if you are unhappy with translucency & craze lines, discuss options with your own dentist. Bonding, veneers, crowns?

My four front teeth (2 on top, 2 on bottom) are transparent on the edge. Would a pronamel toothpaste be enough to get ridof that? What is the recommended treatment?

My four front teeth (2 on top, 2 on bottom) are transparent on the edge. Would a pronamel toothpaste be enough to get ridof that? What is the recommended treatment?

No: Incisal transparency\translucency is normal and varies from individual to individual and from tooth to tooth. Wearing down of these edges or tooth erosion may sometimes increase the transparency. I recommend that you discuss this issue with your own dentist to see what, if anything, can be done to satisfy your wishes.

Are these white lines on my front teeth due to too much fluoride treatment? Lately I've noticed some white lines on my front teeth, and am wondering if maybe I'm getting too much fluoride..

Are these white lines on my front teeth due to too much fluoride treatment? Lately I've noticed some white lines on my front teeth, and am wondering if maybe I'm getting too much fluoride..

You: You question did not say how old you are, if you are taking vitamins with flouride, or whether the lines are vertical or horizontal. Hard to tell, sight unseen, but if they are vertical then they are probably small stress fractures of the enamel due to wear and tear, grinding, and age. Flouride would not cause this. As your dentist for his/her opinion since they can physically see your teeth.

MY FRONT TEETH ARE CRICKED HAD CEREAMIC BRACES FOR 5 MTHS DOCTOR SAID THERE IS NO OTHER TREATMENT AND NEEDS TO STOPI HAVE SHORT ROOTS ON FRONT TEETH: (?

"6 month": Sounds like a Dentist tried to help you with a product called "6 Month Smile." If it sounds too good to be true... Please see qualified Orthodontic Specialist for evaluation (usually free or modest cost). Root length may be an issue (take your x-rays with you), and if so your solution may have to be a restorative one rather than an Orthodontic one.

My 5 year old has some front teeth decay (doesn't complain of pain). Should I wait for the teeth to fall off or get the treatment which (would involve general anesthesia which am not comfortable with?

My 5 year old has some front teeth decay (doesn't complain of pain). Should I wait for the teeth to fall off or get the treatment which (would involve general anesthesia which am not comfortable with?

Treatment is best: Since tooth decay in primary teeth can affect permanent teeth even before they have erupted, having them treated would be wise. If your are uncomfortable with your current dentist's recommendation, seek a second opinion for confirmation. Anesthesia is quite safe in the hands of an experienced anesthesiologist.

Maybe: But if teeth are lose already I would be concerned about any orthodontic treatment. I would visit an orthodontist, have them take a panoramic x-ray so they can see your root structure, and let them advise you if treatment makes sense.

I have root canal treatment done 5 years ago to my upper front teeth and since then I had my gum swollen around that teeth. What is the reason?

I have root canal treatment done 5 years ago to my upper front teeth and since then I had my gum swollen around that teeth. What is the reason?

A few possibilities.: The swollen gum can be because the root canal failed and you got re-infected. If the tooth was crowned, it could be due to an ill-fitting crown or poorly shaped filling that is at the gum line. It could have nothing to do with the root canal and is actually caused by heavy plaque and tartar under the gum. See a dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

When I close my mouth, my lower front teeth touches the back of upper front teeth. Currently going through orthodontic treatment but what may be reason?

When I close my mouth, my lower front teeth touches the back of upper front teeth. Currently going through orthodontic treatment but what may be reason?

Not unusual: As your teeth are moving into the correct alignment, it is not unusual for only the front teeth to touch. Certain movements for particular corrections may produce these temporary conditions. If you remain concerned, ask your treating dentist for more specific information of your particular situation.

Can my bridge be damaged if a root treatment is to be performed the dentist wants to drill through the bridge as I have an abcess front teeth?

Can my bridge be damaged if a root treatment is to be performed the dentist wants to drill through the bridge as I have an abcess front teeth?

RCT through bridge: Obviously, drilling a hole through the back of a crown will create a break in the integrity of the restoration. In doing so, there is always a risk of further damage to the porcelain which might necessitate remaking the entire bridge. What your dentist proposes is quite common. If everything goes well, your dentist will permanently seal the hole after the rct is completed. Then remake?

I stated my ceramic Braces treatment 4months ago, got 2 teeth pulled out, yesterday my doctor noticed that I have very short roots on my front teeth What should I do please help. Can I switch TREATMET?

In 4 Months?: Guadalupe, you stated you began treatment 4 months ago. How did your doctor notice you had short roots now, but not 4 months ago? Were X-rays taken BEFORE you began treatment? Are you saying your Dr. Took more x-rays 4 months after treatment started or took the 1st x-rays 4 months after treatment started? That bit of information is most important.

DDS evaluation: Have the dentist evaluate your tooth. It is always better to try to save your tooth period. The dentist may feel that the tooth is compromised and may need root canal therapy. In addition, if there is inadequate tooth structure above the surface, crown lengthening may be indicated.

Sounds: Sounds like it probably will not amount to anything. Small chips often will occur like this when edge to edge trauma occurs. Since it is asymptomatic and the appearance doesn't bother you, see how things go over the next week or so. If the tooth begins to ache or turns dark, it could be a sign that the nerve in the tooth was damaged and at that point it should be looked at and treated. Even if you went to your dentist today, there is no immediate treatment necessary to prevent future problems.

2 front teeth are badly chipped. Dentist wants to put sealants. What is this and will my teeth look normal again. Is it similar to tooth restoration?

2 front teeth are badly chipped. Dentist wants to put sealants. What is this and will my teeth look normal again. Is it similar to tooth restoration?

Second opinion: Is warranted. Dental sealant is a thin, composite coating painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent tooth decay. It is also used to protect an exposed dentin in a broken or chipped tooth. However, it is not a durable material for permanent or cosmetic restorations. Rec.: second opinion with another dentist for diagnosis and treatment.
