My son is 10 years old, in training he was hit with a ball in the face, as a result, a fragment of the front tooth broke off. How to act in such a situation?

Good day! First of all, you need to seek dental care as soon as possible. If a tooth fragment is found, place it in clean water or saline solution and bring it to the clinic. With proper and fast transportation, the doctor can "glue" a piece of his tooth into place. If we failed to find the fragment, we restore the chipped tooth with composite restorative materials. To assess the depth of the lesion and further control the situation, we will take a targeted X-ray of the tooth. A similar clinical case can be found in the Gallery section. 11 tooth injury.

I have bad breath and blood after brushing my teeth. I tried different toothpastes, the problem does not go away. Tell me what other measures to take. Elena, 31 years old.

If there is constant bleeding and bad breath, it is best to come for an examination and consultation with a dentist, namely a periodontist or hygienist. The problem can be trivially associated with the presence of plaque, tartar, and all unpleasant symptoms will disappear after adequate professional teeth cleaning and the selection of brushes and pastes. But it should also be understood that both bleeding and bad breath can be caused by more serious dental diseases, as well as the general condition of the body.

I am registered with a periodontist, they advised me to do Vector-therapy. What are the pros and cons of this procedure? Anton, 43 years old.

The vector - therapy - is widely used. It is used in the complex treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis of varying severity, with inflammation of the soft tissues around the implants, as well as in the complex of professional hygiene in patients with implants, orthopedic structures, orthodontic treatment. The advantages of vector therapy: effective and gentle cleaning, rinsing periodontal pockets without the risk of damaging the cement of the root and soft tissues, polishing the root surface with a special vector-fluid, reducing hypersensitivity due to hydroxyapatites contained in the fluid. As a result, there is a visible improvement in the condition of the periodontal tissues, no bleeding, pale pink healthy gums. A relative disadvantages is the fact that it are that the procedure is not a one-time procedure, and a course is prescribed for the therapeutic effect, with periodic repetition in the future from 1-2 times a year. Also, in the case of periodontitis treatment, vector therapy is effective only after the main periodontal treatment (scaling and polishing of the root with manual curettes)

I am worried about the appearance of my teeth, I would like to align them with the help of braces. How long will the treatment last, what are the most aesthetic options? Nikolay, 34 years old

The approximate duration of orthodontic treatment is 2-2.5 years.
The most aesthetic options include ceramic braces and aligners (transparent aligners).

Orthodontic treatment involves certain inconveniences

- brushing your teeth after each meal during orthodontic treatment

-additional elements during the treatment (elastics)

- Moderate sensitivity after the installation of the orthodontic system and every month after activation

But this does not affect the usual way of life in any way.

I have been wearing braces for 2 years, there is no way to complete the treatment with my dentist. What manipulations need to be done after removing the braces? Svetlana, 23 years old

During the removal of the bracket system, the material on which the bracket was fixed remains on the teeth. It is removed with special burs and polishing rubber bands, without injuring your tooth in any way.

After orthodontic treatment, a non-removable retainer is used (a metal arch that is fixed on the inside of the teeth from canine to canine and is worn constantly) and removable retainers (aligners) that are worn at night.
