It might be calculus/plaque/tar-tar. And if so is the case, it can not be cleaned by regular brushing. Go for professional teeth cleaning i. E. Scaling from a dentist.

I am suffering from halitosis .i had sinus but now I am fine since suffering from halitosis.
Halitosis can be due to hard & soft deposits on the teeth, dental caries and food impaction or infection in any neighbouring areas of oral cavity. Eg. Rhinitis (cold), sinusitis, throat infection etc. Consult a dentist for scaling, filling of dental caries. Get treatment for any infections present. This will help you to get rid off halitosis.

Normal teeth are very strong. If you teeth move then you might be having gum problems. First get your gums cured. And then go for braces. Don't delay because this is the best period life for you to get braces.

Sensitivity may be due to caries in teeth or cervical abrasion. If you have caries then you need to fill the tooth/teeth. Or if you have mild abrasions then you may ho for sensitivity toothpastes. If abrsions are severe then you may need to fill that.

I have a missing tooth. My doctor suggested to go for bridge. Could you please tell me whether the bridge is best or the implantation. And also can you tell me pros and cons for bridge and implantation. Which will be for longer period.

Hi lybrate-user, bridge for missing teeth is a conventional procedure while implants are modern solutions for the same situation. Bridge needs support of two adjoining teeth while implant does not depend on adjacent teeth. Only disadvantage of implants is the cost that seems more but it is usually worth it, depending on clinicians experience and post-operative care and support. Please gain more information through internet and ask your dentist for possible complications of the same. Best of luck.

First of all. Lets find the reason of bad breadth. So firstly visit a dentist and then do a scaling and polishing. Later learn correct brushing technique and flossing. So that you will be able to maintain a good oral hygiene by yourself. You can use any mouthwash which is available in market but once when you remove the bad breath then you will be able to get a good result of mouthwash. For any more query or treatment visit us today.

Do whitening toothpastes whiten teeth more than regular toothpastes? Walking is better than running for stamina?

Hello lybrate-user. Whitening toothpastes whiten the teeth to some extent. For better results go for scaling of teeth followed by bleaching procedure after consulting your dentist.

Use Of Digital Smile Design in Dentistry

Use Of Digital Smile Design in Dentistry

While there are people who care too much for their hair and skin, they do not realize that the most important aspect of beauty lies elsewhere. Ask any artist and the most beautiful thing, according to most of them, would be a good, warm, heartfelt smile. It connects two people as nothing else can.

And if anybody has had a bad time, a warm, genuine smile is the best curve that sets a lot of things straight.

Given its artistic, emotional, and cosmetic value, there are people who have defined how the perfect smile should be and how to achieve that. Some of the aspects leading to a good smile are:

  1. Shape of the teeth
  2. Size of the teeth
  3. Contour of the jaws
  4. Angle formed by the lips when they open up during a smile
  5. Proportion between width of the eyes
  6. Distance between the eyes
  7. Width of the mouth

Not all of these can be modified, but there are small changes, which can be made, thereby improving your smile significantly.

Dentists and dental lab technicians who create and form artificial teeth realized this. One such person, Mr. Christian Coachman, a ceramician, developed this concept of digitally designing a smile to ensure it produces the best results. He was involved in making ceramic crowns and chanced upon this idea. It involves the following:

  1. A series of digital images (photos and videos) of the patient are taken.
  2. They are transferred to the computer and the abovementioned features are analyzed.
  3. Features like the angle of the mouth, the size of the teeth, etc. are manipulated to see what would produce a good smile.
  4. A smile with better dimensions is created.
  5. A second opinion is sought from multiple other cosmetic dentists (a badly designed smile can be catastrophic!!).
  6. These inputs are incorporated and a smile is then digitally produced.
  7. The patient is shown these images and changes (if any) are made.
  8. The smile is reconstructed and a trial is conducted.
  9. Final processing is then done.

Benefits:

This multidisciplinary team approach produces very good results and the benefits include the following:

  1. Trials can be done before finalizing on a smile.
  2. Patients have the liberty to alter and choose a smile that suits their face.
  3. It improves the cosmetic value of a person.
  4. It improves feelings of self-esteem and confidence.
  5. No special equipment is required as it is mostly done with whatever equipment is already available in the dental office, except for a good camera.

Given its major impact on both the beauty and the psychological aspects, DSD is gaining more popularity and is being sought by patients, who feel they can smile right!!

Pulp therapy is absolutely safe however the child should be supportive or it can also be done in general anaesthesia. As he is 4 years old, that teeth should be saved till the permanent teeth come, and the treatment will not affect the eruption of permanent teeth.

You have to consult a dentist and have to go through scaling procedure. It is a simple procedure and merely takes an hour. Will surely help. Other than that there are no options.

You have not mentioned about gutkha chewing habit or so. Anyway be clear about this that at this stage no home remedy will work. You need to visit an specialist dentist and at maximum it may require a surgical approach in your case if medicines and exercises fails. You can ask me further in this regard as I myself have treated several such cases with lasers. Thank you.

Dentist,
Healthy gums don't bleed easily. They will remain healthy if you keep them clean. Get scaling done first and then reevaluate. Start off with a healthy balanced diet to rule out nutrient deficiency

7 Benefits of Chewing Sugar-Free Gum

7 Benefits of Chewing Sugar-Free Gum

Chewing gum may be made popular as a style statement in the recent past, but in reality, it is as ancient as the Aztecs and the Mayans, who had the habit of chewing gum or bark. Over the years, numerous studies have been conducted to deep-dive into its benefits, and it has been found to be very beneficial.
With the recent fad of foods going sugar-free, chewing gums also left the sugar in them out.

For routine regular oral care, it is advisable to brush and rinse after each meal. However, in cases when one is not at home, this becomes a practical challenge. A good option is to chew a sugar-free gum after each meal, so that decay and gum disease are reduced to a large extent. This can be supplemented with a brushing or flossing as soon as it becomes available.

In addition to avoiding sugar load, there are other benefits of chewing sugar-free gum as listed below:

  • Kills microorganisms: It is believed that chewing sugar-free gum for about 10 minutes can kill up to 100 million bacteria in the mouth.
  • Stimulates production of saliva: The jaw movement that happens with chewing gum increases saliva production and flow. This helps in diluting the acids in the mouth, flushing out plaque, and removing food particles that are lodged in various areas.
  • Prevents decay: With improved salivary flow, the chances of dental decay are delayed. Studies comparing pH of the mouth before and after chewing gum have confirmed that sugar-free gums reduce the acidic level of the mouth, which is conducive for tooth decay. There is no actual sugar in the gum, thereby one of the factors required for decay is eliminated.
  • Xylitol: One of the main ingredients in sugar-free gums, it is shown to reduce the amount of bacteria that lead to decay in the mouth. This is an ingredient from fruits and vegetables and so good for the overall health.
  • Improves digestion: As is well known, the first step of digestion begins in the mouth. With improved salivary flow and increased chewing, food is digested to a greater extent leading to reduced incidence of acid reflux.
  • Boosts logic and memory: Chewing gum stimulates blood flow to the brain and stimulates the neural pathway. This has multiple benefits including improved memory, improved alertness and logical skills, reduced anxiety, and improved learning and memory.
  • Saves money: With all these benefits, especially reduced incidence of gum disease and tooth decay, it is estimated that a lot of money spent on dental treatments is saved.

So, the next time you see the sugar-free gum at the billing counter, there is no need to think too much about it, go for it!!
