Ask a Question [si-contact-form form=’1′] Comments « Older Comments Karen January 6, 2012 Please I need help with denture wearing. I have spoken to everyone about this, and read everything I can still no luck. I am 36 years of age I have been wearing full dentures (top, bottom) for roughly 4 years do to Periodontal disease. From the beginning I have had so much saliva my teeth fall from the top, and float up from the bottom. Then I start gagging, and have no choice but to take them out. I have tried gluing them in, and it makes hurling from saliva so much easier. So I dont have to worry about spitting them out. I have had 3 different sets made all the same. I have been told I just have to get used to wearing them from 4 different dentist. I can not afford to have another set made. I need help. I was told about implants but they back that up with my gum ridge is so small and may not be able to get them. Please do you have any opinions to take to my dentist to try. I was also told soft liners maybe an option. I had soft liners when I started wearing dentures and it got way to expensive. Now I dont know where to turn for help. Varun January 6, 2012 Hi KAren, sorry to hear your plight from the past few years due to dentures. There are many reasons for Hyper salivation and having a denture is one of the min ones as the body feels the Denture to be foreign body and as a response leads to Hypersalivation. There are certain drugs which have been used in such cases to decrease saliva production – There is a certain class of drugs – Antimuscarinic agents which reduce saliva secretions such as – Amitriptyline, benzatropine, atropine, trihexyphenidyl hydrochloride, hyoscine hydrobromide (Note: These drugs should be taken under Doctor supervision only. Other medications such as Beta -Blockers can help in decreasing Saliva production. Botulinum Toxin A is also known to decrease saliva production on injecting the solution into the Salivary Glands. Other medications such as 1% atropine solution sublingually twice daily has also helped in decreasing sublingual glands hypersalivation. These drugs help in decreasing the amount of saliva being produced and can solve your problem. B K CHAKRAVARTHI January 6, 2012 Hi sir, This is kalyanchakravarthi, i have 35day old baby boy his have teeths sir, this is possible in this age and any problem with is …pls give ur suggestions sir Varun January 6, 2012 There are two types of Teeth at this age – Natal Teeth: teeth which are present from birth and the other one is Neonatal Teeth: Teeth which erupt within 30 days of birth. Most commonly these teeth tend to make it difficult for feeding the baby and might lead to ulcers. If that is the case it is better to get them removed. If there is no problem to the baby and the mother while feeding in some cases we can leave them as they are. mohamed January 6, 2012 Hi, I am international Medical Graduate from Egypt, we study basic science then medical science continuously . we don’t have separate degrees for PreMed or Biology degree , however I have transcription letter of subjects I studied (anatomy, physiology, Medicine , surgery etc..). I want to shift career and study dentistry in USA, My question is how can I apply to Schools without ” premed ” degree. thanks Joe January 6, 2012 Hi, I am enquiring about this on behalf of Mrs. She is a green card holder and lives in Chicago. She completed her BDS ( Bachelor of Dental Study) from India and is planning on doing DDS from the US. I browsed through a few websites and found that the average fees for residents are around $80,000 per year. That’s such a ridiculous amount. Is that a ballpark figure for the fees? Would you be able to recommend any institution in and around Chicago that we could look into? Would you have any website suggestions that I can read about the advantages of the course and in which countries they are valid? Cheers Varun January 6, 2012 Yeah that is an insane amount and after passing out, we can earn the same amount. Most colleges are similar in fees structure if not more that what you have mentioned. Here is a list of Dental Schools and their fees year wise which I have compiled – https://www.juniordentist.com/cheapest-dental-schools-in-usa-for-dds.html GG January 6, 2012 Hi.

Varun January 6, 2012 Do you mean to say that there is no retention of the baseplate while MMR ? Marwa Ibrahim saad January 6, 2012 How we treat patients with arrested caries ? Varun January 6, 2012 IT depends on the position of Caries, if it is in dentin close to the Pulp chamber you can leave it with a base on top and go ahead with the restoration. If it is in sound Enamel or dentin removing it completely is recommended. « Older Comments Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
