It needs to be done scaling and polishing by a dentist. As the deposits are too firm to be removable by any application. It needs special instruments.

Dear lybrate user, tooth brush injuries can be avoided by brushing gently using soft/ultrasoft toothbrushes. Don't be too hard while brushing as it can damage/injure your gums. Consult your dentist who can prescribe a gum paint for you to massage your gums.

You will have to stop chewing tobacco; only then will the cleaning and polishing of the teeth have any effect. Laser cleaning is good but expensive treatment. Please visit a dentist.

Helpful Tips for Dental Braces

Helpful Tips for Dental Braces

Getting braces is the best thing you can do for your teeth. Yes, the process is painful. And maintenance of braces can get too much, but it is not undoable!

When you have braces on teeth, those teeth need extra attention to protect them from decay, staining and gum disease. You should also take precautions to avoid damaging the braces. For example, activities to avoid include eating chewy or sticky sweets, eating hard or crunchy foods, biting your lip, breathing excessively through your mouth and pushing your tongue against your teeth,

So if you got braces for the first time, here are some helpful tips you can swear by. Read on.

  1. Listen to your orthodontist: This is kind of obvious, but seriously, listen to what your orthodontists says. You may wonder if you really need to do this or that, but not paying attention to your doctor’s advice can actually prolong your treatment, and extend the time you need to keep your braces on.

  2. Brush every time you eat: Although brushing twice a day is the standard oral care recommendation, when you wear braces, you should brush after every time you eat — even after that mid-afternoon vending machine snack or some late-night munchies. That's because food particles easily become trapped in the braces, and the longer those particles stay trapped, the greater risk you have of developing dental problems. Use a soft toothbrush with round bristles, or an electric toothbrush if you prefer.

  3. Rubber Bands: If you have been asked to use rubber bands, it is always recommended to carry rubber bands with you all the time, so if one breaks it can be replaced promptly. Rubber bands wear down and lose their elasticity, so they should be replaced often, definitely after every meal. Wearing the rubber bands all the time will keep the treatment progressing at an optimum pace.

  4. Use your back teeth to chew: Don’t bite into that burger with your front teeth like you are accustomed to doing. This actually gets the food to stick on to your braces. So eat food that you can cut into bite size pieces and chew easily with your back teeth.

  5. Drink plenty of water: Skip that soda, which will only erode your teeth, and drink water after meals. This not only keeps you healthy, but with water, you can swish it around your mouth to rinse out any big chunks of food.

  6. Stay away from crunchy food: Crunchy foods are dangerous, not only do they get stuck in your braces, they also can get quite painful to remove. Plus, crunchy foods can be bad news for the shiny braces you just got for yourself.

  7. Speak up: If during an appointment you have any query, no matter how silly, ask your orthodontist. Your doctor is there to help and guide you, so don’t shy away from asking questions and discussing your problems. Or if some part of the brace is hurting mildly, get it checked at once. Air your troubles, that is what your doctor is here for.

After The Braces Are Off-

Whitening products, including whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, should not be used until after braces are removed. After braces come off, some discoloration of the teeth will likely be present, so this is a good time for a child to use whitening strips.

Sir, I am getting undergone Route Canal Treatment and completed 4 sittings. I did not open my mouth easily, from the 2nd day of the treatment. When I want to open my mouth, I am suffering from unbearable pain in that side jaw. The Dentist replied that you have muscular pain and suggested pain relievers. But no use. May I use any Anti biotic with pain relievers? Kindly suggest any medication.

Yes this may be muscular pain but to be very true it take sometime to get cured from 15 days to 1 month antibiotics have no role pain killer may slightly relieve but time is the only key you will feel trouble opening jaw Apply hot / cold application as advised by dentist don't panic with days it will be back to normal.

I had found tiny small red dots on front of my tongue which are not gone away even after 25 days and some times they hurts, in past I had used tobacco products for roughly 6 years, now from last 3 days I found bumps on back of my tongue and side back of tongue which hurts when touched to teeth, I recently consult a doctor who give me multivitamin tablets and 2 mouth paste tubes but after taking those medicines the bumps I think more hurts. I am very scared about it, I read some articles about symptoms of mouth cancer on internet which really stressed me, I didn't understand what to do, please help me if anyone can tell me about that.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand.Injuries to your tongue can also result in sores resembling tongue blisters. ... If your tongue is sensitive and prone to injury, avoid foods that generally cause damage. Practice daily oral hygiene and use warm salt water or a mouthrinse to promote healing and protect the natural bacteria balance in your mouth. Take care.

I am suffering from recurring mouth ulcer for over 4 years I am taking beplex forte tablet for 8 months then also I am having recurring mouth ulcer. What should I do .

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

There are white patches on my tongue. I am 21 years old and these patches are there from last 5 years. It used to hurt when I observed this but after that there was no pain. Now i feel my tongue as normal but these patches are still present. Is this something serious ?

B.D.S
Dentist, Jaipur
Yeah it is serious. It can be due to any drug reaction or it can be pathological but one can give diagnosis only after observation and some test. What you can do is to avoid alcohol, tobacco , spicy food and keep ur gut healthy. So better visit a dentist. Thank you

Yellowness of the teeth can be cured to some extend by scaling (professional teeth cleaning) and dental bleaching.

As per your reports you have used desi siting toothpaste but have no relief. You may have enamel erosion because of bruxism, hard brushing, age and had any orthodontic treatment before. Consult a nearby dentist for laminating or veneering for permanent relief. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

But I get blood in my saliva sometimes if I talk too much for the whole day in my school and private tuitions I am taking colostrum capsules. Dentist and oncologist said not a concern because my oral health is superb. What is the problem?

Dear lybrate user, good to know that you've quit the habit. Add a pich of salt to a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your mouth three times daily. Brush gently twice daily with a soft toothbrush to maintain good oral hygiene. Get yourself monitored regularly. Avoid eating heavily fried, extremely hot and spicy food. Consume lots of fluids, water and fruits. Establish a healthy routine by taking out time to exercise and try to stay stress-free. Too much workload is harmful.

Near upper right jaw feeling mild pain and numbness. Nerokind tabletes are suggested by dentist when these are used feeling fine but after 8 hours when tab power lasts again repeats numbness at upper right jaw. How long these tabs should be continued.

Nurokind is form of vitamin b12 which is prescribed in many conditions. What are the tests you have undergone for this problem. Have you taken the full mouth xray (opg) or may be ct scan (cbct) for this. You can continue tablet for one more week and if symptoms doesn't improve do all the test necessary for diagnosis.
