Do some warm salt water gargles to have some instant relief and also if you have some densensitizing toothpaste. Apply it on the particular tooth. You can see the dentist after that.

Will my teeth become loose if I get my teeth cleaned?

This is the most frequently asked question whenever we suggest teeth cleaning. Let me try and clear some misconceptions
Scaling and polishing is professional cleaning of ur teeth. We remove the plaque and tartar ( yellowish white , brownish, blackish deposit on inner side of ur lower teeth)

How will cleaning help you?
For patients it is stoppage of bleeding gums and foul smell. But doctors advice cleaning as more of a preventive treatment rather than curative treatment. Cleaning of teeth will prevent inflammation of gums ( hence no bleeding gums) and bone loss (hence preventing loosening of teeth)

Is cleaning painful?
it cannot be termed painful. U can say causing a bit discomfort but easily bearable by all.

What to expect after u have undergone cleaning of teeth?
1. No bleeding gums
2. Considerable reduction In foul smell
3. U will feel mouth is much lighter

On the downside u will feel
1. Spacing in between ur teeth has increased ( it is not actually the spacing that has increased, but removal of tartar in between ur teeth gives u the feeling that gap has increased)

2.Teeth become sensitive ( it is because a lot of tartar is removed which leaves ur root of teeth exposed to oral cavity. It usually subsides gradually within 15 days)

3. Inner surface of ur lower teeth are rough. ( it is because tartar may not be completely removed from those surfaces. Roughness is felt for 2-3 days only)

4.Lower front four and upper two teeth are sensitive while cleaning of teeth ( it is because those teeth are relatively smaller and less thickness of enamel. Hence vibrations are felt in dentin and hence sensitivity)


As a dentist I would advice to undergo cleaning every 6 monthly.
If not 6 monthly then
1. Whenever u spot yellowish white deposits on inner side of ur lower front teeth
2 . If u Hv bleeding gums
3. If u Hv smelly mouth
4. If u Hv gum problems.
5. If u feel ur teeth are loosening.

Remember it is a preventive treatment. More u neglect , more irreparable damage it causes.

Hope it was helpful . Good day

You have gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling will help you in this regard for stains you can go for bleaching. Stop tobacco, pan, alcohol and smoking if you have these habits. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Use crest toothpaste.

Insert the fingers of your hand in your mouth if it is below three fingers. It is very serious. Please visit a dentist and ask for corticosteroids injection therapy. Along with that you will need some exercises advised.

Crowns are always required after rct because it gets weaker. Forces while eating can do fracture of rct treated tooth. That's why dentist suggest a cap but patients don't get it done. Consult your dentist.

I am 53 years of age. In the night i chew my teeth on regular basis. What is the reason and what is the cure

Now a days maximum people have habit of night grinding because of the stress throughout the day . Either you reduce the level of stress which is not possible so better get a night guard so the ill effect of grinding can be neutralised.

Dear lybrate-user, please relax. First of all the cotton pack used must have been a sterilized one so there are very less chances of some kind of infection. Secondly please pay attention while passing stools. It may come out that way. If not then you need to see a gastero-enterologist. Chances of the later option are rare. Cheers.
