Teeth are naturally an off-white colour, but many people find that their teeth yellow with age, or get stained by drinking coffee or tea. Smoking can also stain the teeth, so regular brushing and professional cleaning at a dentist is important in keeping your teeth from yellowing extensively.

Agree to some extent with Dr. Chander, but we need to evaluate it so that it can be corrected by simple means as your daughter is at end of her growth phase. A photograph of patient will be of much help.

These tooth paste only provide temporary solution - when you use them you get relief, but does not solve the root cause that causes sensitivity. Sensitivity occurs due to removal of outer layer of tooth, micro fracture of teeth of due to cavity present. You need to visit a dentist and find out the exact cause. In simple cases a filling will solve the problem.

I have a foul Smell coming of my Mouth.
I brush 2 times daily but no difference.
What to Do?
You have to visit a dentist to know what causes bad smell. Causes are numerous may be be due to cavities, prosthesis in mouth, deposits,chronic sinusitis, or may be due to any systemic diseases. You can get rid of bad smell easily just do a consultation with dentist and oral prophylaxis and if you have any systemic cause get it treated by a general physician. Mouth washes are available to get rid of smell use it under supervision of dentist.

He is a chain smoker. His teeth has become yellowish in colour what to do and what precaution s should he take.

Dentist, Chennai
He is  a chain smoker. His teeth has become yellowish in colour what to do and what precaution s should he take.
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.

Its good that you have cut down on smoking. Alcohol consumption is also quite dangerous in liver disease and may lead to alcoholic fatty liver followed by cirrhosis. Get vaccinated against hepatitis a and b. Take home cooked food and boiled/ro water as they may lead to liver infection.

Kindly consult an Oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, TMJ open & closed mouth, MRI) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Avoid yawning. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing

Mother is suffering from gingivitis Help with some home remedies or medication

F.I.O, BDS, Certified Implantologist
Dentist,
Tannic acis gum paints and chlohex mouthwash can give temp relief, but for permanent relief you must visit your dentist to see the exact cause of gingivitis which most probably is going to be calculus and get the cause removed.

The presence of flouride in the tooth paste helps in keeping tooth problems away. It hardens the tooth enamel which is healthy for the teeth and reduces the risk of tooth decay.

I am 25year old male I have a problem smelling in my breath last 3 year. I do complete checkup and treatment for dentist but not solved(relief) problem. What should I do?

Sir, if the problem is still there, that means cause is also there. Please read the causes and evaluate yourself for the problem. There have been myriad other reported causes of oral halitosis-. Deep carious lesions (dental decay)? which cause localized food impaction and stagnation recent dental extraction sockets? fill with blood clot, and provide an ideal habitat for bacterial proliferation interdental food packing? (food getting pushed down between teeth) - this can be caused by missing teeth, tilted, spaced or crowded teeth, or poorly contoured approximal dental fillings. Food debris becomes trapped, undergoes slow bacterial putrefaction and release of malodorous volatiles. Food packing can also cause a localized periodontal reaction, characterized by dental pain that is relieved by cleaning the area of food packing with interdental brush or floss. Acrylic dentures (plastic false teeth)? inadequate denture hygiene practises such as failing to clean and remove the prosthesis each night, may cause a malodour from the plastic itself or from the mouth as microbiota responds to the altered environment. The plastic is actually porous, and the fitting surface is usually irregular, sculpted to fit the edentulous oral anatomy. These factors predispose to bacterial and yeast retention, which is accompanied by a typical smell. Oral infections oral ulceration fasting stress/anxiety menstrual cycle? at mid cycle and during menstruation, increased breath vsc were reported in women. Smoking? smoking is linked with periodontal disease, which is the second most common cause of oral malodor. Smoking also has many other negative effects on the mouth, from increased rates of dental decay to premalignant lesions and even oral cancer. Alcohol volatile foodstuffs? e. G. Onion, garlic, durian, cabbage, cauliflower and radish. Volatile foodstuffs may leave malodorous residues in the mouth, which are the subject to bacterial putrefaction and vsc release. However, volatile foodstuffs may also cause halitoisis via the blood borne halitosis mechanism. Medication? often medications can cause xerostomia (dry mouth) which results in increased microbial growth in the mouth. There are a few systemic (non-oral) medical conditions that may cause foul breath odor, but these are extremely infrequent in the general population. Such conditions are:[22][23] fetor hepaticus: an example of a rare type of bad breath caused by chronic liver failure. Lower respiratory tract infections (bronchial and lung infections). Renal infections and renal failure. Carcinoma. Trimethylaminuria (" fish odor syndrome"). Diabetes mellitus. Metabolic conditions, e. G. Resulting in elevated blood dimethyl sulfide.[8]
