Problem with projection of teeth, also I don't have four molars. If teeth is taken out then can dental implants be used there ?
hello doctor , i am now 21 years old.i had done dental treatment done almost five years ago.i had a complicated problem.by birth my lower jaw was inside.When i went to treatment it was brought forward using twin blocks.Then braces was used to bring it back.It ended as okay.After one year settled teeth came forward.Then it was fixed using retainers.But the problem is there is still projection of teeth.It is not much visible from outside.I am not able to smile well or talk with confidence .I visited a dentist .He told me the only possibility is to take off four teeths .two from above and two from below and then put on braces.Is it possible. If teeth is taken out then can dental implants be used there.also i don t have four molars.Actually the teeth is still inside.i have asked about it to a doctor.he said it is better if it remains there since i dont have any pain or disturbance with it.will this make problem.Can you recommend any treatments.I am considering doing braces again.I am thinking of doing treatment after 2 years since I am doing my p.g.will that age be correct for treatment.
As per your symptoms you are having orthodontic relapse.
After finishing the orthodontic treatment the teeth tend to move back to its original position, so a retainer is given to patient (removable or fixed) to hold the teeth in the new position.
According to American standards it has to be given till the age of 22. At this age the growth of the body stops completely.
Now that relapse has occurred in your case, you need to go again for orthodontic therapy that is fixed or removable depending on the severity.
If minor correction has to be done better go for removable.
If enough space is not there to align the teeth then to gain the space extraction of premolars (to gain more space) or proximal stripping (to gain less space) has to done.
And yes, orthodontic treatment can definetely be done at this age. Its called Adult orthodontics.
If you have photographs of your teeth plz send me to email@example.com to recieve more advice.
yes u have to go for fixed orthodontic theraphy if tooth is protruding out to take back in we need space so we will be extracting one premolar from each side by using that space we can set back in or if its very severe protruding without extraction by means of mini implants as anchorage without taking support to molar we can take in and one more thing if ur periodontal status is good even at the age of fourty ur good case for orthodontic treatment so consult ur orthodontist and get a good smile

I am a 57 yo woman who lost my lower molar 2.5 years ago. I just got back from getting my teeth cleaned and the denist/surgeon says I should get a implant or pull the top tooth because it will continue to grow until it meets my bottom gum. A implant is over $4,000 and I don t want to pull my top molar. Help

can a tooth abscess cause a bladder infection? tooth abscess has been going on for about 4 or 5 yrs now...on and off antibiotics, cannot afford to have bone graft or tooth pulled...bladder infections have been chronic and i notice them more when my teeth are acting up. also i drink cranberry juice regularly, aside from dental problems, i am a healthy 28 yr old woman.
My son soon to be 41yrs old had an injury at work that completely amputed his dominant right arm and externally amputed the external 98%. It was held on by a slither of skin in 2009. He has had 5 surgies. A bridge like bar inside the upper part of his arm and lower cavador nerves in the lower part. He has what they call a bear claw hand and wrist just flops so he has to wear a wrist brace but even though he has no feeling in certain parts of his hand he is in pain always especially in the cold. And where the bridge in the upper arm is you can t touch at all because it causes great pain. His WC cade was closed and now is on SSD and Medicare part A&B,but would never be able to afford any kind of medical bill balances. His medicines have cause him to have his teeth decay and he of course has no dental coverage at all. He needs a doctors that are willing to take care of his teeth with extractions and dentures but most important one that is willing to amputee his arm and give him a robotic one so he would once again have two arms and hands that work without pain any longer and then fix his teeth to aldso spot that pain and get him off his meds. But he also needs this all to be done pro bono since he would not be able to afford any cost. He is in the Bronx,NY.
I underwent angioplasty in Feb 2008 and 2 stents were placed. I am on cardace 10, stamlo 5, clopact 75,ecosprin 150 and atorvastin Ez (all one tab each). I require a tooth extraction for which the dentist has advised to stop ecosprin 150 for 5 days before the extraction. A cardiologust advised me to have ecosprin 75 daily instead of 150 strength for the 5 days. Another said as the angio aws in 2008Feb I can stopp the ecospin maybe 2 days before extraction. the dentist has agrred to stoppage of ecosprin 3 days before extaction which includes the day of extraction. What am I to do. Should I get a blood clotting test done? ( before or after stopping ecosprin?) Since clopact is for thinning blood, should I stop that too?
I am a 67 year old female. Have been on amoxicillin 500mg 3-times a day for nine days now for a tooth extraction and bone graft. Also, take niaspan 1500 mg a nite. And was on ibubrofen 3x500mg 3 times a day for 4 days. Been off that for 3 days now. Today my fecus was green. Not sure if it was due to the fresh herbs in the chicken last nite or to the amoxicillin. Is this dangerous?
After many years of being just not right, but never really ill and disappointing doctor visits, I found out that the most possible explanation for all my little symptoms are most likely Histaminosis. I have my remaining teeth removed beginning of...
