I have suddenly developed a problem of bleeding gums, bad mouth odor and swollen and inflamed gums. A pungent taste can be felt when I rub My tongue against My teeth. Teeth are covered with layer of plaque and in the interior there is slight formation of tartar. I regularly brush and use mouthwash twice a day. If it pyria, then does is spread through some one who already has it?

Kindly get scaling done and use gum paint and mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath.

Chronic gingivitis is common in children. It usually causes gum tissue to swell, turn red and bleed easily. Gingivitis is both preventable and treatable with a regular routine of brushing, flossing and professional dental care. However, left untreated, it can eventually advance to more serious forms of periodontal disease. Establish good dental hygiene habits early. When your child is 12 months old, you can begin using toothpaste when brushing his or her teeth. When the gaps between your child's teeth close, it's important to start flossing. Serve as a good role model by practicing good dental hygiene habits yourself. Schedule regular dental visits for family checkups, periodontal evaluations and cleanings. Check your child's mouth for the signs of periodontal disease, including bleeding gums, swollen and bright red gums, gums that are receding away from the teeth and bad breath.

BHMS

As you haven't explained clearly of what is extact problem, as there's irritation from spicy foods I think its mouth uclers or redness in mouth, just take homoeopathic medicine borax 200 4pills 4 times 4 days. It ll give relief n give him lots of water n lime juice 3 times in a week n try giving him few cumin seeds to chew for 15 mins. It ll reduce the ulcers or redness.

Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are stress, change in lifestyle or medicine, allergies. Start some vitamin supplements. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Reduce your stress level. Increase your intake of water. Avoid oilly n spicy food.

Oil-pulling- The Best Home Remedy For Dental Health You Might Not Even Know About

Oil-pulling- The Best Home Remedy For Dental Health You Might Not Even Know About
The ancient practice of oil-pulling is witnessing a resurgence. More and more people are touting the benefits of coconut oil-pulling for dental health. Do you know what oil pulling is?

Well, oil pulling is an ancient remedy that uses oils, such as coconut oil to clean and detoxify your mouth of germs and bacteria. It is one of the simplest technique, which you can do without a hassle.

To do oil pulling, all you have to do is take one spoon of coconut oil in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes every day and swish it inside the mouth. Swishing it will help remove the germs and all those small pieces of food that gets lodged away inside the teeth. Timing is the key here. Because you have to ensure that it is long enough to break through the plaque and bacteria and absorb toxins, but not so long that it reabsorbs toxins!

Spit it out in a trash can, as coconut oil can solidify in the drains! Rinse well with warm or normal water.

Once that?s done, it is recommended that you brush your teeth thoroughly. You will notice that your teeth will become smoother and shinier. Slowly and steadily, they will become whiter as well.

And don't worry! Unlike other practices, this remedy isn't based on pseudo-science. In fact, researchers suggest that it is actually beneficial and helps in problems such as gingivitis, plaque, microorganisms and reduce problems like bad-breath or gum issues.

While it is incredibly beneficial, it is recommended that oil pulling shouldn't be used as a substitute for regular dental cleaning. So, make sure that you are always brushing your teeth on a regular basis to keep your mouth cleaner, fresher and healthier than ever!

Please take pain killer and then visit to a dentist for proper treatment because your teeth would be affected with deep caries.

I am 27 years old going to get marriage this year I have a problem of bad breath please provide me suggestion, how to over come that problem.

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently. You can come for a consultation (free of cost) in our clinic.

If pain is due to decay on tooth then you have to go for root canal treatment to cure it. If pain is due to erupting wisdom tooth then it is advised to get it removed from the dentist soon. Xray is required for proper suggestion. Visit to a dentist for examination and proper treatment plan. Medicine will give you only temporary relief. For permanent solution you should visit to a dentist.

Go for scaling and polishing of your teeth, should be done once in 6 months. Many things cause gum bleeding but the most common is gum inflammation which will improve after this for further advise consult a dentist nearby maintain oral hygiene, brush twice for 3 minutes each change your brush every 3 months use dental floss to clean interdental areas. Thanks.

I have a pale white line in the left inside cheek that does not go off I consulted a dentist who diagnosed it as line a alba probably due to cheek biting or frictional kerotosis I have pain but irritation is there any home remedy?

BDS, Non-Resident J.R. in Dept. of Orthodontics, Certified oral implantologist, Advanced Aesthetics, Digital Smile Designer
Dentist, Jammu
Sir your dentist has diagnosed it absolutely right. You can go for occlusal grinding for relief or orthodontic correction for the same. After a dental professional (like a dentist or oral pathologist) has diagnosed you with linea alba, they will most likely start treatment by advising you to get rid of whatever irritants or behaviors are causing the condition. Some of the things you might have to do include stopping certain habits, such as biting your cheeks or being overly aggressive in your oral hygiene. Alternatively, your dental professional may have to make adjustments or changes to your dentures and orthodontic appliances (braces). It might also be necessary to repair or remove uneven teeth. Since some of the reasons for cheek biting might relate to emotional or psychological issues, you may also be advised to schedule an appointment with a counselor or psychiatrist to try to deal with the underlying issues behind the cheek biting. After this, you can follow up with your dentist to confirm whether the condition has improved.

Is it better to use two toothpaste in a day? (For eg: Colgate in morning & patanjali in night)
It is not toothpaste but the technique you use to clean the teeth will impart good oral hygiene. For best results you can go for professional cleaning every 6 months, and for maintaining the the same brush twice daily using the right technique. You can use any toothpaste.
