01. How will I know if I am developing cavities?

If you see any black spots, if the food gets stuck in your teeth, if you have sensitivity or pain with hot and /or cold food/liquids, then there are chances that you have decay in your teeth. Best thing to do is to get a dental check-up done and you will be advised for an appropriate treatment.

02. I have brown and white patches on my front teeth, is there any treatment for that?

Yes. These patches can be removed and esthetic restorations can be done after masking them. You may be advised veneers if needed.

03. Is root canal treatment painful?

Root Canal treatment is advised in cases where the pulp tissue within the tooth is affected either due to decay, trauma or fracture. It involves the removal of the damaged or diseased pulp tissue, cleaning and shaping the root canals and subsequently filling the canals and the pulp chamber with a suitable material. When there is an infection in the tooth, the condition may be very painful. However, the root canal treatment treatment is done under anaesthesia and hence it is painless.

04. Can I change the color of my teeth?

Yes, it is possible to lighten the shade of your teeth by a procedure called Bleaching or Teeth Whitening. It is a simple procedure with predictable results and can be done at the dental clinic (Office Bleaching) or at home (Home Bleaching). Superficial stains caused by smoking or excess intake of tea/coffee, wine can be effectively and conservatively removed for an instantly brighter smile.

05. My child had a fall in a sport activity and he fractured his front teeth, a few months ago. Now that tooth is turning black, what to do?

PPlease take him to a dentist. When there is a fall and a tooth fractures, the nerves may get damaged. At times infection sets in. The tooth may become non-vital (dead). This requires a root canal treatment followed by aesthetic rehabilitation of the fractured tooth.
