Brief Answer:
Generally used in maintenance of calcium level.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Thank you for consulting with HCM.
This is Dr. Dipti Singh here to answer your query.
Actually Calcivita contains
-Vitamin D3, Calcium carbonate and Calcium
This medication is generally used in cases of caicium deficiency. As vitamin D helps in absorption of calcium so it is used with calcium carbonate. So that it fulfills the requirement of calcium.
Vitamin A is helpful in maintenance of growth and development and even for good vision and immunity.
Dibasic calcium phosphate is used as a tartar control agent.

It can be possible that you might be prone for caries that is why the dentist has prescribed you calcium for maintenance.

Hope it will help you.
Thank you
Regards
Dr. Dipti Singh

Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 4 hours later
Brief Answer:
Yes they are good for health

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Yes definitely this tablet is good for tooth as well as bones. These are taken for long term and side effects are very rare, but if you feel symptoms like constipation, nausea, muscle pain or severe headache you should visit your dentist and discontinue them.
The composition of this drug is good, ad others are also approximately similar just the company is changed.
Relief ACP desensitizing gel is basically used for sensitive teeth not for application on the filled teeth, as it will not give any relief in that case.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you

Are there any tablets contain amelogenins and enameling which will help to rebuild the enamel?
How ever these days, suddenly I see some tooth decays. For an example. Morning the tooth condition is good but in the evening even though I brush the teeth properly I saw sudden tooth decays. What could be the reason for that? This happen while I was taking Calcivita and Vitamin C tablets and also brush the tooth properly? Are there any other reasons for this sort of issues?What is remineralization of tooth? Can it be done by a dentist for that decayed tooth and take the tooth to original shape?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
No there is no such tablets

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

There is no such tablets in market which contains amelogenins and enameling, as these tooth substance enamel and dentine are formed during the development of the tooth.
Actually caries develop in two patterns one is from outside of the tooth to inside, other is from inside of tooth to outside, I think in your case it is the second one that is why it is visible only when it is severe.

To prevent it you should avoid excessive sugar intake and even snacks between the meals.
Once a tooth is demineralized means decayed it can be remineralized, but yes it can be restored with filling material and normal shape is established.
Hope it will help you.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Better reduce snacks between meals

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Actually you have to maintain proper hygiene on toothbrush as well as in washroom to avoid these ants you should use toothbrush that comes with cover and even clean it properly.
As I mentioned earlier you have to reduce the sugar intake means the foods that contains sugar even avoid too much snacks between food.
As these things decrease the pH of oral cavity which causes demineralization of the tooth that results in tooth decay.
This kind of decay can not be prevented by just toothpaste or mouthwash.
Only one thing you can do that you can visit dentist regularly and get x - rays done to see those cavities.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you

doctor
Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 3 hours later
Brief Answer:
It stays for long if done properly.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Thank you for consulting with HCM.
Actually if a filling is done properly, it stays for a long term even till 30 years or above.
But if it is not done properly it dislodges early.
Even it also depends on how much tooth is left for filling weather it will support the filling or not.
Hope it will help you.

The filling inside the tooth stays like that only, it does not forms the tooth structure or cause any process of amelogenesis.

Brief Answer:
Mainly effective in increasing bony strength

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Actually the medications which you have mentioned, it does not play any prominent role in dental health. They are mainly useful for bones, as there is continuous remineralization and demineralization in bone .
As in tooth once it is formed, it remains as it is only demineralization occurs because of cavities.
So no drug causes restoration of natural tooth structure.
Hope it will help you.

I experienced that once the tooth were filled decay started near the filling area. Is there any special reason for that?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 18 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Called as secondary caries.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
This kind of decay which starts near the filling area is called as secondary caries. This happens in the condition when either the decayed part of the tooth is not removed properly, or any space left between the tooth and filling. This causes space for saliva and food particles to accumulate in between the tooth and filling and again decay starts.

how to remove the decayed part of the tooth properly? If there is such a part inside my filled tooth ,how to avoid further decays?How to remove the decayed part of the tooth properly? If there is such a part inside my filled tooth, how to avoid further decays before any of my teeth fully decay?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
A dentist only can remove it.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
Actually the decayed part of the tooth will not be visible to you, dentist will take x - ray which will show him the decay, and first he will remove the decayed part with his instruments then go for filling of the tooth.
And if some decayed part is still left inside the tooth, you will feel some discomfort and then you should go the dentist again and get it re-filled, to avoid further decay.
Hope it will help you.

Normally, I eat whatever I like without any limitation. As you think what kind of foods I should limit for protect the tooth? Eg: coffee,coca cola etc. As you think without such a limitation will I be unable to protect my tooth anyway?What is the materials the tooth Enamel is consisted with? Eg:Water, fluoride etc.
Will the essential items in foods and water help to repair, rebuild , maintain the enamel ? E.g.: Calcium.
What are the natural foods which help for the dental health as I am a vegetarian? Will I need to take them everyday or how often I need to take them?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Dipti Singh 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Enamel can not be rebuild with any food items.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXXX
You can definitely continue with coffee, cola like things, you just be careful about munching snacks eg. Chips, biscuits, chocolates and sweets in between meals, as if you want something like this, then you should take it just after the meal then the effect will be less.
The enamel consist of water and organic material like hydroxyapatetite and crystalline calcium phosphate. But once enamel is formed during development of tooth after that the remineralization does not take place, if it gets decayed.
As I told you earlier no food or medication can repair or rebuild the enamel once decayed, you just can maintain proper oral hygiene and less sugar intake.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you.
