Why don't you take it to the shop - they will bend it (by heating it if necessary).

No need to worry about anything of that sort. But the next time you buy a new pair, let the optician know about this. He would probably be able to help you choose a more appropriate frame.

Thank you carbon and drmohitg. Since I am a long way from replacing the frame, getting adjustment done at the optician is best option as of now. I will do so at the earliest opportunity.

Thank You! But Dr. Vivek Jawali is the one who asked us to go for surgery even when we said the age is around 75+, where most others wanted us to treat the blockage medically.

Thank You! We had been to Narayana Hrudayalaya in April 2012, wherein they(Dr. Sanjay Mehrotra) had prescribed medicines. This worked for sometime, but these days he is having upper backpain(symptom of an impending attack). So when we went again, they asked us to meet Dr. Praveen Kumar at NH, but he was not keen on doing bypass surgery considering his age.

Thank You! A week back we had been to Jayadeva, but couldn't meet Dr. Manjunath. Heard he is busy with his daughters marriage. Will try meeting him sometime next week.

From the details you have given, most of the doctors are suggesting Not to go for a surgery.

But I can understand the point about the pain & signs of impending attack. It is a tough situation to be in.

Good Afternoon
My 8 year old daughter's tooth has been extracted a week back. This tooth had been root canaled around 3 years back and it developed infection in it through the gap between cap and adjacent tooth.
The pedodentist (not original who root canaled) has advised to install the brace (like bridge) to keep the adjacent teeth from bending towards the gap of extracted tooth as it shall take nearly 1year to grow the permanent tooth. The extracted tooth is 5 th tooth from centre i.e. 2nd from canine, it must be pre-molar.
My questions are
1. Shall using the brace on adjacent teeth which are permanent shall damage them and can be harmful in the long run since they are permanent teeth?
2. Can not the growing tooth push the adjacent teeth in its original position while growing if let it remained without any bridge or brace?
What should i do?
please advice as I am having appointment with the dentist.
Thanks.

How did you find out about this infection? I was under the impression that once the RC is done, then the tooth would be safe? How does one identify such damage before the pain starts?

There was pus and swelling in the gums and root canal could not be done again. So i thought it better to extract. Now a days it seems there are more problem of teeth in children than earlier.

Milk tooth will fall anyway around 6-10 years of age and new tooth will emerge.
I do not under stand why Root canal has to be done for kid's milk tooth. Can the dentists in the forum kindly enlighten us in this regard?

It's called a space maintainer, and no damage occurs to adjacent teeth.

No, once the space closes due to a tilting tooth, the unerupted tooth cannot erupt into position - it can either erupt in a misaligned manner, or not erupt at all.

Now that extraction has been done, and the permanent tooth that replaces the extracted tooth still has 2-3 years to erupt, the space maintainer is the best solution.

Root canal treatment of a milk tooth requires certain modifications to the standard procedures used to treat permanent teeth, and since the canal structure of a milk tooth is more complicated and finer than a permanent tooth, the chances of failure are higher than in permanent teeth. RCTs in permanent teeth also have a certain small percentage of failures.

Milk teeth need RCT in the situation where retaining them is important as a space maintainer, and the corresponding permanent tooth has a few years before it erupts. Also, maintaining chewing function in a child through treating and retaining a milk tooth has a large influence on her/his diet and overall health.

These replies are on behalf of my wife who is a pedodontist (dentist for children).

Its a good idea to get a space maintainer as the second premolar will erupt around 10-11 yrs of age.

It does nor damage the permanent tooth. And the growing permanent tooth does not push the teeth to create space for itself rather it gets displaced into whatever space is available and thus increasing the need for orthodontic correction.

There can be many symptoms like pain, swelling or no symptom at all. The best way to find out before pain starts is regular checkups.

This is mainly because of changing food habits and eating patterns. Most (Almost all) dental diseases are preventable but we don't give much importance to dental health until it becomes a emergency. Talk to the dentist before any problem starts to learn how to prevent problems altogether. Again regular check-ups must be a priority.

Yes, the tooth will eventually fall off, but it is important to maintain it in good health until its natural shedding time. Premature loss of milk teeth may lead to many complications such as crowding and malalignment of permanent teeth, Poor nutrition of the child because of inability to eat properly, low self esteem, to name a few.

Hope this helps.

Today around 11AM (at Manipal), my door bell rang and I found two health workers (a.k.a girls with lab coat) at the door.

They asked whether I have taken medicine for Filariasis/Elephantiasis (Elephant Leg Disease). Obviously I hadn't, didn't know there was a contagion.

So the girls handed out 4 tablets, and asked me to take all 4 of them right after dinner. Now, like any sensible person living in India, I don't trust the government. Especially when it comes to my health.

So, what is this thing, some kind of vaccine made by the lowest bidder?

http://www.nvbdcp.gov.in/MDA.html

The first one is Albendazole 400mg tablet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albendazole).

The 3 tablets are Diethylcarbamazine citratre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diethylcarbamazine).

Read details here:
http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs102/en/


Quote:
Treatment and prevention

The recommended regimen for treatment through mass drug administration (MDA) is a single dose of two medicines given together - albendazole (400 mg) plus either ivermectin (150-200 mcg/kg) in areas where onchocerciasis (river blindness) is also endemic or diethylcarbamazine citrate (DEC) (6 mg/kg) in areas where onchocerciasis is not endemic. These medicines clear microfilariae from the bloodstream.
Regarding the quality of the medicine you guessed right . But sometimes UNICEF / WHO purchases the medicines from abroad and donates to Govt of India. In that case quality of the medicines are not bad.
