You can clear that problem but at this age is the problem related to only spacing or any periodontal problem. First you need to know that, there is orthodontic aligners which will close your spacing. If possible can you post your teeth pics and a full mouth xray.

Get your mouth clinically examined by dentist to determine root cause of the problem. One possible cause can be high points if thats the case little grinding of tooth would resolve your problem.

These brown stains could be from inside the tooth (brown teeth could be due to a condition called fluorosis.) or outside the tooth. If they are outside the tooth you can get you teeth cleaned by scaling by visiting a dentist. If they are due to fluorosis bleaching or someother procedure depending on severity can be done. If it is mild, best to leave it alone.

Regarding projecting teeth problem at this age the orthodontic treatment is not advisable. About your 2nd complain trimming can be done if possible and required. Try to eat at slowly and do some exercises like holding water and air in your mouth so that cheeks get stretched a little. Take care.

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.

No such any homeremedies do effect fluorine content in teeth bt ofcourse it can be stopped from further increasing by keeping it mouth clean brushing 2 times alwys gargil after any eating it even after drinking beverages like juices coldrinks and try alwys to drink purified water and ofcourse you can use mouthwash 2-3 times a day for 15 days and make sure to go for scaling once to your nearest dental clinic.

Hello doctor, I consulted a doctor a month ago and he prescribed me to take omega 3 and vitamin capsules. I followed the same. Today I met a friend who is a Amway representative and he showed me a experiment in which he put the cut tablet on thermocol and it started to melt. So is it safe to continue or is that common experiment? Thank you doctor.

It is safe to continue if you can see benefits. Do not get misguided by one odd experiment. All drugs go through stringent quality checks before floating in the markets and getting prescribed.

Hi, bad breath or halitosis can be due to some conditions like cavities, dry mouth habit of tobacco products, smoking and alcohol. Go for professional cleaning. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily. Keep your mouth clean.

There may be some sharp edges of your teeth, visit a dentist to get them checked, avoid hot and spicy foods, stress also leads to ulcers on tongue. Apply mucopain and hexigel ointments.

Hi teeth can be black may be because of two reasons like either tooth is dead or due to any staining. If tooth is dead rct is the option or any discolouration or staining then bleaching is the option. You need to be investigated and diagnosed for proper treatment plan.

You can’t brush every time you eat. But you sure can drink water or at least rinse your mouth with water every time you do so. Water neutralises the effects of acidic and sugary foods. Rinsing removes food particles left behind on/ between the teeth.

Deposits on teeth surface is very normal. Everyone has it. But every body has to clean it everyday with brushing. Sometimes it stays for longer time and becomes hard and discolored. Then we should go for scaling. You also need same treatment.
