My teeth become yellow what should I do?
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

I have ulcer since a week, what should I do?

Ask Free Question
There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Pain is due to hyperactivity of muscles of jaw. Please check from your family members whether you grind your teeth in night? you should visit dentists. Treatments would range from psychological counselling to oral appliance wearing to relieve muscles, exercise of jaws, joints and holding warm towel over muscles. Please consult nearby dentist for same.

The joint between teeth and gum weakens when there is infection in the gum. The dentist will check clinically to see the symptoms of gum disease. If the infection is limited to one or two teeth, a small x ray is taken. If the infection is seen in the entire jaw, a full moth x ray (opg) is taken. On seeing the radio-graph, the dentist will decide if further treatment with laser is required. Sometimes artificial bone powder is packed to strengthen the bone. If not treated early, teeth start loosening.

this is due to improper brushing technique. although you brush twice a day but you are not following correct technique due to which food particles accumulate between your teeth and have resulted in cavities and calculus deposits. kindly visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth as well as filling of the cavities. follow correct brushing technique and good oral hygiene habits.

You told about state of liver but didnt talked about the oral health. Visit a dentist and get diagnosed about plaque and calculus deposition or any other chronic infection. Apart from that, you need to change your diet alsi. Make it rich in fibres and green vaggies. Hope it worked.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.
