My one front teeth is getting blueish in color, why so? and what is the treatment to cure it?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
Sometimes the upper front tooth would have suffered trauma. This trauma will cut off the blood supply to the tooth, the blood inside the tooth cant go back and it gets collected inside the tooth. The blood on stagnation changes its colour. This colour when seen through the enamel may appear blue which may later turn into brown/black. Kindly visit the dentist who may diagnose the problem with the help of a radiograph.

At your age it may be a wisdom tooth. Which is generally partially erupted due to lack of space and covered with a flap of gum which gets infected when food debris stuck below it. This is called pericoronitis. You should visit your dentist and get some medicines prescribed with localized cleaning. If the problem persists then extraction of that wisdom tooth is advised.

Gum Disease

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Gum Disease
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

If you notice any of the following, visit your dentist immediately

Gums that bleed easily
Red, swollen, tender gums
Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
Persistent bad breath or bad taste
Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
Any change in the fit of partial dentures

It is possible to have gum disease and have no warning signs. That is one reason why regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important

Remember: You don’t have to lose teeth to gum disease. Brush your teeth twice a day, clean between your teeth daily, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dental visits for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

please help.
Hi thanks for the query natural tooth colour ranges from yellowish white to grayish white. Or yellowish teeth can be because of accumulation of plaque and tartar on tooth surfaces. If it's plaque and calculus than you need professional teeth cleaning (scaling) and if it natural than you need chemical teeth whitening (bleaching) thank you

Relapse rate will be much higher if you get braces at late age. Most appropriate age would be till 21 years. Should go for other treatment options like as available in esthetic dentistry.

Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Bad breath can be caused by dry mouth (xerostomia), which occurs when the flow of saliva decreases. Saliva is necessary to cleanse the mouth and remove particles that may cause odor. Dry mouth may be caused by various medications, salivary gland problems or continuously breathing through the mouth. If you suffer from dry mouth, your dentist may prescribe or suggest using sugarless candy and increasing your fluid intake.

Tooth aching and Needs a Root canal treatment as soon as possible. With the Nice doctor.
Dear Lybrate User, It's hard to know that the patient requires a Root Canal Treatment. But now that you know of it, do not delay in getting the treatment initiated by a General Dentist or even an Endodontist (Root Canal Specialist). Root Canal Treatment is a very simple procedure that every qualified dentist can perform. Only in cases of complex situations, a specialist's help is sought (Endodontist). Good luck!

Pain in deep ears. Especially when I eat. Its more when I press my teeth together.

Pain in deep ears. Especially when I eat. Its more when I press my teeth together.
Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, tmj open & closed mouth) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. Advise mouth opening exercise & side to side movement for the jaw muscles or the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and painkillers. For people who grind their teeth or clench their jaw, a bite-appliance may be made which corrects the way in which the jaw works and reduces the stresses and loads on it. This can be disposed of when normal function is restored. As oral & maxillo-facial surgeon, may be required to perform surgery on the tmj.

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.

Bad breath is associated with periodontal problem. It seems you might be having periodontal problem. C/as pyorrhea. You need to get rid of it. It needs aggressive therapy. You need to make a habit of rinsing your mouth everytime you eat something and brush regularly (once in the morning before meals and once at night after dinner, add a mouthwash for better oral hygiene. If the problem persist, it would be better to consult a dentist personally for a more appropriate diagnosis. And accordingly the treatment can be tailored as per your diagnosis.

Tip to keep the teeth whiter

Post-Graduate Certificate in Endodontics
Dentist, Cuttack
Tip to keep the teeth whiter

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.
