Sir everytime from my teeth blood will be coming out so please suggest medicine ?

Bleeding is due to inflammation in your gums caused due to poor oral hygiene. Medicines will not help you solve your problem. You need to have a clean up done and follow instructions given by your dentist to maintain your oral hygiene.

You need to go for a scaling treatment first. It will stop gums bleeding. Then you can tell your dentist about your teeth problem.

I am 18 years old sir .My 2 teeth (mole) have removed due to cavity, is it any problems of medicine test? And there is no any other problem in my body.

Its surprising that at this age you had undergo removal of teeth. Ideally what we do with tooth having cavity is we restore the tooth with dental cement if the cavity is nit deep. If the cavity is too deep then also we can save the tooth by root canal treatment followed by crown (cap) when tooth is having deep cavity and have lost more than 80-90 % tooth structure along with poor gingival support then only we remove the teeth or else we can save it. And having cavity is not a scary thing it happens only due to improper brushing technique, poor oral hygine. If you undergo scaling (every 6 months) and maintain a good oral hygine then risk of developing cavities will be much more reduced.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your tooth surface. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.

A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of life-like porcelain that is bonded to the surface of your natural tooth to enhance the shape, color, or size of the tooth.

It is custom made by a master technician in the dental laboratory with enamel-like qualities that defy detection.

Porcelain veneers can provide a dramatic smile improvement for your teeth gaps, mildly crooked, chipped or discolored teeth.

 The advantage of porcelain is that the veneer is translucent, stain resistant, and mimics the light handling characteristics of your own dental enamel.

Hello Dental braces and orthodontics are ways of straightening crooked teeth, adjusting protruding teeth, closing up gaps in the teeth and adjusting over bites or under bites.You can consult a dentist if you are interested in dental braces. use Homeodent toothpaste, twice daily. These are few home tips to get rid of the paleness of teeth. Orange Peel: To diminish yellow tone on your teeth, rub orange peel onto them regularly. The vitamin C and calcium contained in the peel will tackle the microorganisms effectively. (i) Clean your teeth with orange peel before you sleep every night and notice the positive results in a few weeks. (ii) You can use orange peel powder, in case fresh orange peel is not available. (iii) Rinse your teeth after this application.

What is teething? your baby is teething when his or her first set of teeth, called primary teeth camera. Gif, break through the gums. When does teething typically start? teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth. See a picture that shows when the primary teeth come in camera. Gif. What are the symptoms? some babies are fussier than usual when they are teething. This may be because of soreness and swelling in the gums before a tooth comes through. These symptoms usually begin about 3 to 5 days before the tooth shows, and they disappear as soon as the tooth breaks the skin. Many babies don't seem to be affected by teething. Babies may bite on their fingers or toys to help relieve the pressure in their gums. They may also refuse to eat and drink because their mouths hurt. Many babies drool during teething, which can cause a rash on the chin, face, or chest. Mild symptoms that get better usually are nothing to worry about. Call your doctor if your baby's symptoms are severe or don't get better. How can you help your baby be more comfortable while teething? here are some tips to help your baby feel better while teething: use a clean finger (or cold teething ring) to gently rub your baby's gum for about 2 minutes at a time. Many babies find this soothing, although they may protest at first. Provide safe objects for your baby to chew on, such as teething rings. If needed, give your baby an over-the-counter pain reliever that is labeled for his or her specific age. Read and follow all instructions. Do not give aspirin to anyone younger than 20, because it has been linked to reye syndrome, a rare but serious disease. Many parents use other teething remedies, such as gels you put on a baby's gums. Many experts question if these work and are safe. If you want to try these products, talk to your doctor about which types are safe and how often to use them.

Wait and watch for a few days for the pain to come down and after that get a cap done over the tooth. If the pain doesn't subside, you have to get the procedure repeated.

What you can do about bad breath?

What you can do about bad breath?
What you can do about bad breath?


It's easy to improve your breath and keep your teeth and gums healthy at the same time. Try these simple steps to make your mouth feel fresh and clean.

1. Brush and floss more often.

Plaque, the sticky buildup on your teeth, collects bacteria that cause bad breath. Trapped food also adds to the problem.

Brush your teeth at least two times each day, and floss at least once. If you're concerned about your breath, do both a little more often.

Don't overdo things, though. If you brush too hard you can wear down your teeth, making them vulnerable to decay.

2. Rinse your mouth out.

Besides freshening your breath, a mouthwash adds extra protection by getting rid of bacteria. A fresh minty taste can make you feel good. But be sure the mouthwash you choose kills the germs that cause bad breath. Don't just cover up the smell. Rinse daily with a good mouthwash and stop bad breath at its source.

You can also help your breath if you swish your mouth with plain water after you eat. It can get rid of food particles that get stuck in your teeth.

3. Scrape your tongue.

The coating that normally forms on your tongue can be a host for smelly bacteria. To get rid of them, gently brush your tongue with your toothbrush.

If your brush is too big to comfortably reach the back of your tongue, try a scraper" they're designed specifically to apply even pressure across the surface of the tongue area. This removes bacteria, food debris, and dead cells that brushing alone can't take care of.

4. Avoid foods that sour your breath.

Onions and garlic are big offenders. But brushing after you eat them doesn't help.

The substances that cause their bad smells make their way into your bloodstream and travel to your lungs, where you breathe them out.

The best way to stop the problem? don't eat them, or at least avoid them before you go to work or see friends.

5. Kick the tobacco habit.

Besides causing cancer, smoking can damage your gums, stain your teeth, and give you bad breath.

Over-the-counter nicotine patches can help tame the urge. If you need a little help, make an appointment with your doctor to talk about quit-smoking programs or prescription medications that can help you give up tobacco for good.

6. Skip after-dinner mints and chew gum instead.

The bacteria in your mouth love sugar. They use it to make acid. This wears down your teeth and causes bad breath. Chew sugarless gum instead.

Gum stimulates saliva, which is the mouth's natural defense mechanism against plaque acids, which cause tooth decay and bad breath.

7. Keep your gums healthy.

Gum disease causes bad breath. Bacteria gather in pockets at the base of teeth, which creates an odor.

If you have gum disease, your dentist may suggest you see a periodontist, who specializes in treating it.

8. Moisten your mouth.

You can get tooth decay and bad breath if you don't make enough saliva. If your mouth is dry, drink plenty of water during the day.

Chew sugarless gum or suck on sugar-free hard candy. Also try a humidifier at night to moisten the air in your house.

9. See your doctor.

If your bad breath continues despite your best efforts, make an appointment with your doctor. He'll check to see if your problems are related to a medical condition.

Drinking a cup of tea everyday is healthy for the teeth and gums as it contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

Dear lybrate-user, plaque build up and calulus deposits is the most common cause of bad breath/halitosis. If such is the case you need to get cleaning of teeth/oral prophylaxis done in a dental clinic. After that you have to do regular oral hygiene maintenance. Brush after every meal and use mouthwashes to prevent bad breath.

Different cleaning techniques for people of different age groups are:
•Scrubbing technique: This method is for children who are below 9 years of age. Make sure parents are choosing soft bristles with tasteful toothpaste so that they don’t shirk from cleaning their teeth.

•Bass technique: Kids between the ages of 10 to 15 years are supposed to make circular movements so that an adequate massage can be provided to developing gums. This covers all the gums and teeth area and gives a completely clean mouth.

•Roll technique: In this technique one is supposed to give short strokes towards the teeth surface from gum margin. It is said that improper following of this technique may lead to neglected gum margin clean out.

•Fones technique: This is most commonly adopted technique as it is the easiest one. In this technique, the brush is moved in circular motion. Nowadays most of the dentists advise not to use it because it may lead to tooth abrasion.

•Charter’s method: In this technique, individual has to place the brush partially over the gums and partially over the teeth. Vibrating effect is given to the brush in circular movements. This technique is very beneficial but difficult to learn. This is why this is an unpopular technique.
