Do whitening toothpaste whiten teeth More than regular toothpaste? What should I do?

Dentist,
Do whitening toothpaste whiten teeth More than regular toothpaste? What should I do?
There is no any scientific proof regarding this. White tooth or yellow tooth. Leave it. The tooth must be healthy, free of tartar, plaque. And cavity.

I am 63 years. I have 8 extra teeth behind or in front of the original teeth, disorganized so far no tooth pain or no other problems so not thought of removal. Thinking of potential issues as aging increases. What would you advise.

We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. 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.

I have a patch like something on side of my tongue. It's not painful it seems white in night but day time it's normal. It came after I rigorously scrapped my tongue for few days for white coated tongue.

Please visit Maxillofacial Surgeon and get a definitive treatment. You are not supposed to scrape your tongue with a barbed brush, instead use a soft tongue cleaner or soft toothbrush. Don’t be overzealous in cleansing your mouth, teeth and tongue.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

7 Ways You Can Prevent and Manage Periodontal Disease!

The gums are also called the periodontium - perio for around and dontium for tooth as the gums are literally present "around the tooth." There is a softer mucosal portion that runs along the tooth in a curved manner and a stronger fibrous portion that connects the tooth to the jaw bone. Together, they provide the structural support for the tooth to be held in place. In addition, they also have an esthetic value with the healthy pink color. The mouth has the largest number of bacteria in the body, which act on the food debris that is present on the tooth and the gums. This causes infection in both the gums and the tooth. 

Types: Periodontal disease can be localized or general. 

  1. Localized disease happens when a tooth is not accessible for thorough cleaning. The inside surface of lower incisors and outer surfaces of the upper last molars are common areas of localized periodontal disease. 
  2. Generalized periodontal disease can be due to conditions like pregnancy, puberty, diabetes where gums around all the teeth are affected. 

Symptoms: In both the cases, the following symptoms: 

  1. Fiery Red gums 
  2. Swollen and/or painful gums 
  3. Spontaneous bleeding from the gums: This may be localized or generalized 
  4. Chronic bad breath: Due to food accumulation in the infected gums 
  5. Pus from the gums when the gums are pressed 
  6. Bad taste in the mouth (arising from pus in the gums) 
  7. Gingival recession, producing an effect of having longer tooth
  8. Sensitive teeth 
  9. Loosening of the tooth/teeth 
  10. Painful chewing, as it puts pressure on the inflamed periodontium 
  11. Dentist will identify what are called pockets, which is an indication of severity - the deeper the pockets, the severe the disease. 

Management and Prevention: 

Gum disease is very easy to identify and can be completely cured.

  1. Regular brushing and flossing can help maintain regular oral hygiene. 
  2. With each brushing session, plain finger massage of the gums improves blood circulation and their overall health.
  3. Regular use of mouth rinse is a good way to improve gum health. 
  4. Regular visits to the dentist can help keep a check on the health of the teeth and the gums - early identification of disease and early treatment. 
  5. Once it has set in, deep scaling followed by root planning may be required to thoroughly clear out the infection. 
  6. More surgical options like gingival grafts, flap surgery, bone grafting in case of severe bone loss may be required. 
  7. Management of conditions like diabetes The best way to avoid periodontal disease is to know its symptoms, follow oral hygiene practices, and visit a dentist regularly.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

Natural colour depends on the thickness of your enamel or outer shell of the tooth giving whitish or slight yellowish (colour of underlying dentin or second layer).

Hi doctor, I am 23 years old. My front teeth require braces. My front tooth comes forward due to that my upper lip also looks large. What is the cost of invisible braces cost of India? How long time will it take? Any other cheep method for those who can't afford braces?

Well forwardly placed teeth are best treated by braces only. There are metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces which will cost you less than invisible braces. There are other options also other than braces, but cannot be done in all cases. Only after proper diagnosis, a dentist can suggest what all options can be given to you.

Pain and swelling in gums may suggest food struck near or below the bridge in gums. Get it checked. You may also be having infection in one of your tooth.
