Getting new braces is a commitment you make to achieve perfect alignment of your teeth. Immediately after the doctor fixes them, it takes some time getting used to them. There may be a bit of soreness and discomfort while eating your food. You also need to be careful that you are not eating hard foods that cause damage to the braces. Once you overcome these pain points, you are on your way to get that winsome and perfect smile.

There are various soft foods that can be eaten when one get braces which are nutritious and tasty. Here are a few food suggestions to make the journey with braces a breeze.

Breakfast

  • Poha: Make sure the tasty poha you make is not chewy and is soaked in water properly. Avoid adding peanuts or else you can sprinkle a fine peanut powder on top instead. Also, make sure the cilantro (kothimbir) is very finely chopped so it does not get entangled in the braces.
  • Upama: Upma is a great option for breakfast with well-soaked dal which is very malleable and the rava is cooked with extra bit of water to make it extra soft.
  • Idli Chutney: Super soft idli with finely minced chutney is a good option too for breakfast
  • Scrambled Eggs: Scrambled eggs are one of the best foods for new braces, and they can be prepared in different ways every day with additions like cheese, onions, peppers, salsa and sour cream.
  • Pancakes: They’re soft enough that they can be easily eaten without worrying about chewing, and they make a tasty meal any time of day.
  • Milk, yogurt, small cut pieces of fruits (like watermelon) or fruit juices make the perfect accompaniment.

Lunch/Dinner

  • Soft Lentil Khichadi: This is a good and filling lunch option and can be a great one-dish meal if finely chopped vegetables are added to it while cooking. Make sure it’s cooked well with a bit of extra water.
  • Dal & Roti: Prepare the dal with a soup like consistency and soak broken pieces of roti to it for a few minutes to soften it. It should be eaten when it is fresh and warm.
  • Meat Kheema with Mashed Potatoes: Meats can be eaten in the ‘kheema’ form (minced) so you don’t have to miss out on eating your meats. You can accompany it with mashed potatoes and cooked veggies to make it a hearty meal.
  • Fish Curry Rice: Fish is easily chewable and you can enjoy it in your favorite curry with soft
    boiled rice.
  • Pasta: Pasta can be enjoyed in your favorite sauce if it’s boiled a little more than ‘al dente
    (culinary term for slightly undercooked pasta).
  • Noodle Soup: A hearty meat or vegetable broth added to noodles to comfort you.

One can try to build their own meals to suit one’s palate after taking care of a few things like avoiding hard, chewy, crunchy, sticky or gooey food items such as popcorn, nuts, very sticky or chunky peanut butter, hard or sticky candy (such as caramel, taffy or gummy bears), corn chips, hard taco shells, hard ice etc. to maintain orthodontic treatment.

endodontic-retreatment.jpg

A root canal is considered to be the last step to save your tooth. And once you have undergone this complex procedure, you think you have run a prickly marathon. Unfortunately, not all root canal procedures see the light of the day. You may realize that the pain has surged after many months or even a year after the root canal or an endodontic treatment.

Some of the key symptoms that tell your endodontic treatment has failed when:

  • Experiencing tenderness on biting
  • Observing Sinus pus
  • Increased mobility of the treated tooth
  • Gum swells up in and around the treated tooth
  • Tooth and gum pain

What could be the possible reasons for an endodontic re-treatment?

  • Complex canal structure went undetected in the first procedure
  • Fixing of the crown and restoration was delayed post treatment
  • The restoration failed to prevent salivary contamination inside of the tooth
  • Narrow or curved shaped canals were left untreated during the first procedure

So, what does endodontic retreatment involve?

  • Retreatment of a root canal system requires complete removal of the original filling material
  • After the removal of canal filling, the endodontist may examine your tooth meticulously to watch out for more anomalies in the anatomy that needs to be fixed.
  • Next, the endodontist will fill and seal the canal with a temporary filling.
  • After your endodontist completes the retreatment, you will have to visit your dentist to place a new crown on the tooth in order to protect and restore it to its full capacity.

Well, there is a high possibility that after endodontic retreatment you could save your tooth for an entire lifetime.  A new era in dental equipment has definitely arrived. Advanced and finer dental technology have found a way to reach us through treatments. In fact, the techniques used by your endodontist may vary in comparison to the previous visit, as he/she has access to advanced techniques today.

A root canal treatment in Pune will breathe new life into your battered tooth. Come experience the magic with the help of cutting-edge technology from Dental Sphere.

You may have one or two missing tooth but you may not have thought of replacing them. That could be because you haven’t faced any serious problems till now. And it might also be that you aren’t aware of the future implications of this – at least not beyond the appearance factor.

There may be several factors responsible for losing one’s teeth like:

  • Lack of oral hygiene
  • Oral diseases
  • Genetics
  • Medication

One of the most effective teeth replacement method to restore health, function and beauty to your smile involves a modern treatment known as Dental Implants.

Dental Implant Treatment:

As a tooth replacement technique, it’s impossible to find a better solution than Dental Implants, simply for the secure and permanent solution they offer.

What if you don’t do anything about your missing tooth?

A look at the mirror and you may discover that missing teeth make you look older, and some may think less attractive.

You may also experience additional health issues like diabetes, nutritional changes, coronary artery disease, obesity and some kinds of cancer.

You may also face bone loss if you don’t replace a missing tooth. This is called bone resorption. Osteoclasts break down the tissues in your bones which releases the mineral and transfers the calcium from the bone tissue to the blood. Since the implants are biologically integrated into the jaw via osseointegration, they provide stability to the facial structure while preventing progressive bone loss and gum recession.

Prevent improper Bite and TMJ:

The empty space created by the missing teeth can cause the neighbouring tooth to become loose and even shift in the process. This can cause a faulty bite and lead to TMJ, a dysfunction of the joint that attaches your lower jaw to your skull.

Improve Facial and Smile aesthetics:

Cosmetic dental implants has the ability to give you the most natural looking teeth in the world. After a porcelain restoration, the prosthetic teeth can mimic the translucency of natural enamel, making the implant-supported restoration virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.
