Stop chewing gutka and visit dental surgeon for checkup. For opening of mouth you need to do mouth opening exercises. Use colgate total paste and listerin mouthwash twice a day. Do rinse your mouth with listerine mouth wash.

Staining of teeth are due to oil and turmeric content of food. You cannot avoid staining. But you can minimize it by regular rinses after your meals.

From last 1 year I am having very much dirt on my tongue after waking up in the morning, very thick dirt is collected on tongue cleaner on first two swipes while cleaning tongue Why high dirt is on my tongue?

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
This is usually caused by food debris trapped in the spaces between the papillae, and can lead to bacterial growth and bad breath (halitosis), or soreness (see below). It’s made worse by mouth dryness – for example, in dehydration or if saliva is reduced by dry mouth or Sjogren’s syndrome, drugs such as those used for incontinence, or if we mouth-breathe (often while asleep). The coating is usually whitish-grey, but if mouth hygiene is poor (for example, because of severe illness) it can lead to a ‘black, hairy tongue’. You can remove coating by brushing your tongue every day with a toothbrush or tongue scraper (from your pharmacist). Pineapple or pineapple juice can help if it’s severe, but if it’s persistent, or you regularly have a dry mouth, this could damage your teeth, so see your GP or dentist. Geographical tongue has irregular patches which frequently change. It’s due to flattening of different papillae, although the cause isn’t known. 1 Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid sugary or acidic drinks that can cause tooth decay. 2 Keep your mouth fresh by brushing teeth (and, if necessary, your tongue), twice daily. Floss teeth, too, but don’t rinse protective fluoride toothpaste away. 3 Don’t smoke – it’s a risk factor for mouth cancer and causes bad breath. 4 Drink alcohol within recommended limits – a high alcohol intake is also linked to mouth cancer. 5 Have regular dental checks – your dentist is trained to advise on mouth health, 1. Clean the tongue on a regular basis to prevent bacteria from growing. You can use toothbrushes designed for cleaning the tongue or the ones which have an attachment on the reverse side of it. Don’t use the front part (the one you use for brushing teeth) to clean the tongue. 2. Another way is to scrape your tongue with a thoroughly washed tongue-cleaner or scraper. While scraping, don’t apply too much pressure. Scrape it in a downward motion at least two to three times. If the pressure is too much you may hurt your tongue. Brushing teeth also should be done in a particular way. Here’s what you should know about brushing your teeth. 3. You can use toothpaste to coat your tongue before scraping. Toothpaste neutralizes bacteria on tongue and helps to remove them easily. 4. Rinse your mouth with water thoroughly after scraping. 5. Occasionally, you can use a mouth wash after scraping. Mouth wash helps to remove the bad odour caused by deposition of bacteria on the tongue. But don’t use it daily as it may cause over drying of mouth. Read more about how mouth wash can fight germs in your mouth. 6. You can also rinse your mouth with saline water. Take a half glass of lukewarm water and pour a half teaspoon of salt in it. Rinse your mouth five to six times a day with it. 7. Drink green tea. It helps to eliminate oral bacteria. Read more about health benefits of green tea. 8. Avoid eating foods such as black grapes and berries. These foods can also be the culprits for unwanted colour on your tongue. 9. When you have high fever, a white layer gets formed on the top of the tongue. It can be removed by regular cleanup, but if that can’t be done, it’s a fungal infection. There are ointments for such cases to keep the tongue clean. 10. Drink loads of water. Sometimes dehydration can cause change in colour of the tongue.

Why Tooth Picking Is Bad for Oral Health
A lot of people love to use tooth picks in order to clear out food stuck in their teeth after meals.Some people even consider to do it as a habit that they will use it, even if they no longer have to. These people do not know that there are possible hazards to using it. In order to convince them to avoid using tooth picks, here are 5 reasons why it is bad for oral health.
It can be a source of oral infections. In fact, it could also be a reason for a person to acquire more severe oral discomforts such as mouth cancer. Keep in mind that tooth picks are never sterile as they are only be stored on tables and closets kept inside their boxes or cases. It would never be ideal to put such thing inside your mouth for health reasons.
Constant tooth picking can break the enamel of your teeth. The enamel which is a hard yet thin layer covering the crown of a tooth is a vital tissue as it serves as the main protection or coat of the tooth. Due to its thinness, it can easily break this tissue given that tooth picks are made up of hard substance. Once the user applies pressure on the tooth, the enamel will easily break off of it. Just imagine all of the damage your teeth enamel has taken so far if you are using it three times a day.
It can be damaging to the gums. Whenever a person is using tooth picks, it is inevitable for them to sometimes hit their gums with it. Worse is when they apply too much pressure and they would accidentally have their gums wounded. If you have wounded or damaged gums, the chances of being able to acquire diseases would be higher most especially if the gums become infected. This is why most dentists advise their patients and clients to use dental flossers instead as they are proven to be more safe
