All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Hi, you can use any fluoridated toothpaste from any company, try and use one with soft bristles. It is not really the brush / paste that decides the cleaning efficiency, but the technique of brushing which ensures clean teeth and healthy gums.

Wisdom Tooth

Post-Graduate Certificate in Endodontics
Dentist, Cuttack
Wisdom Tooth

Wisdom tooth eruption most often leads to little pain and discomfort. If you suffer such problem, prefer to go to a dentist to know the position of the tooth. They are mostly tilted or remain inside. They never help in chewing. So we suggest to extract it to prevent any damage to the adjacent tooth due to it.

I mostly suffer from constipation and mouth ulcers. How to cure this problem. Mouth ulcers are very painful.
Do lukewarm saltwater gargling whenever you feel there is an ulcer and then be on a soft and cold diet at the same time. Avoid smoking or use of any tobacco. Get your constipation problem sorted out by visiting a gastroenterologist. N as well I can go for a tooth check up like if there is any sharp teeth which arr actually causing this ulcer thing in your mouth. Then grinding of the sharp tooth cusps can be done to omit the local irritation hope this will help thanks.

Way to Prevent Tartar

BDS, Diploma in Hospital Administration, Diploma in Pharmacy
Dentist, Delhi
Toothpaste advertisements, dentists and many others have warned us about tartar and its ill effects. Most of us are unsure of what tartar is or what it does to our teeth.

Tartar - what is it?

Although you take good oral care at home, there is still bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria mixes with food and proteins and forms a sticky substance called plaque. This forms a coat on your teeth, gets under the gum line and damages the teeth and the gums.

Whenever you eat something, the bacteria releases acids, which damage the tooth enamel and create cavities leading to infected and inflamed gums. If the plaque is removed regularly, permanent tooth decay can be prevented.

However, plaque that settles on the teeth hardens to form tartar that only a dentist or a dental hygienist can remove.

How are teeth and gums effected by tartar?

Tartar makes brushing and flossing harder which can lead to cavities and eventually tooth decay.

If tartar forms above your gums line, the bacteria present in it irritate and damage the gums and overtime lead to progressive gum diseases.

Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease. Visiting a dentist regularly alongside brushing and flossing daily can keep gingivitis away from you. Otherwise, the damage can worsen to such an extent that pockets form between the teeth and gums and bacteria infects the gums. This is called periodontitis.

How to control tartar build-up

The best way however is not to let tartar form on the teeth.

1) dental care

Brush twice a day for at least 3 minutes with a soft toothbrush. Ensure that you brush the rear surface and the rear molars too.

Electronic or powered toothbrushes have been proven to get rid of plaque better than the manual ones, but make sure that they are ada approved.

If you choose a tartar control toothpaste with fluoride, you can prevent plaque from hardening into tartar. Fluoride repairs the enamel damage too. Toothpastes that have triclosan also fight the bacteria in plaque.

Flossing is the only way to remove plaque from between the teeth and keep out tartar formation.

2) proper diet

The bacteria in your mouth along with starchy and sugary foods release harmful acids to damage the teeth and the gums. Remember that whenever you eat, you are feeding the bacteria too. Hence, limit the intake of sugary foods, brush and floss after every meal and drink lots of water.

3) quit smoking

People who smoke or chew tobacco products succumb to tartar build-up.

A dentist only can remove the tartar from your teeth. Accordingly, visit a dentist once in 3 months to prevent any further oral problems.

gum disease can be prevented

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
gum disease can be prevented
Prevention starts with good dental care habits. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day. Flossing reaches the places the toothbrush can’t, about one-third of the tooth surface. Practice good overall health habits. Eating a wellbalanced diet and quitting smoking improves your overall health and your oral health. A professional cleaning done in the dental office is the only effective way to remove the hardened tarter that leads to gum disease. Also one of the things your dentist looks for during an examination is any sign of gum disease.

Dentist,
What is the treatment or mouth wash that I have to use to avoid mouth smell.
Bad smell or halitosis usually occurs due to unclean tongue or deposits on teeth. Start using tongue cleaner and mouthwash like chlohex. And if not satisfied visit your dentist for cleaning.

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 toothpaste 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.

A set of dental braces can give a sort of confidence in their appearance that is so important to teenagers.Most of the patients are thrilled with their perfect teeth - but there can be problems like staining of the teeth due to poor cleaning of the teeth due to the presence of braces.
