Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth

Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth

If chewing food and retaining a sparkling smile is not enough for you, avoiding toothaches and a visit to the dentist could be reason enough to maintain healthy teeth. Ignoring your tooth health can lead to many problems. Answer yourself the following question. Would you like your teeth inside your mouth or in a glass tumbler beside your bed at nighttime? 

If you opted for the former, then going through the following tips and advices will go a long way in helping you sustain healthy teeth. They are:

  1. Brush and floss twice a day: Brushing and flossing twice a day, on a regular basis will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums in the long run. The ideal time to brush your teeth is 20 minutes after a meal. Opting for a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles gives you better access to even the deeper portions of your mouth, thus providing comprehensive cleansing to your teeth. Moreover, softer bristles are generous on your gums as well.
  2. Nutrition: Whatever you eat, either protects you or makes you more susceptible to diseases and disorders. This stands true for your oral health as well. As such, choosing the right foods early in your life is of vital importance. Foods such as cold drinks, cakes, candies and other such sugary substances facilitate the growth of germ and bacteria in your mouth, resulting in plaque and cavities. Choosing foods that are low in starch and sugar will reduce the development of germs and help eradicate cavities or plaque in the long run.
  3. Smoking: Even the pack of smoke that you buy endorses smoking is injurious to your general health. Smoking causes reduced flow of blood to the mouth, which resultantly leads to increased chances of periodontal disease and mouth cancer. Smoking, moreover causes a decline in the ability of the bones and tissues to revascularize (self-heal). All else apart, just stop smoking.
  4. Chewing gums: Chewing gums are highly beneficial especially after a meal. They not only increase the flow of saliva in your mouth, but also improves the flow of blood to your brain, thus enhancing your alertness by close to 10%. In addition, chewing gums help neutralize the acid in your mouth, thus helping you cleanse your mouth.

I am 20 years old. The problem is, someone told me to eat chewing gum to get rid of bubbly cheeks. But this resulted in giving me two grooves on either side over my cheeks. This looks really awkward. Can you please tell me how to get rid of these grooves and get my plain smooth face back as previous?

I am 20 years old. The problem is, someone told me to eat chewing gum to get rid of bubbly cheeks. But this resulted ...
Hello Lybrate user, The two grooves on either side of your cheek is because of overstimulation of your jaw muscle which is known as masseter muscle .also known as masseter hypertrophy which is because of continuously chewing of chewing gums .it's the same principle as you do more workout in gym to make more muscles. The more you clench your teeth the more work your masseter muscle has to do .it does not happen when you normally chew your food. I would advise you to stop this habit of continuously chewing on chewing gum. Eventually the groove which appears due to hypertrophy of masseter muscle will disappear but it will take some time. And who says bubbly cheeks are not cute.

I am suffering from heavy headache with gum bleeding please suggest me what should I do.
hello lybrate user, gum bleeding could be due to vitamin deficiency, or use of hard brush, etc; have healthy diet, add more fruits in diet, avoid certain food which aggravates headache. avoid stress. take homeopathic for headache and gum bleeding. it is safe,natural and holistic way of treatment. homeopathic medicines like Natrum, spige etc are highly effective in headache complaints. chronic type of headache needs constitutional treatment where medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details like medical history, routine, causes, temperament etc; such well selected remedy gives complete relief and cure without side effects. you can consult to me online. message back for proper homeopathic consultation. take care.

When i am eating food my tongue paining when chilli powder touches its paining is there any solution.

When i am eating food my tongue paining when chilli powder touches its paining is there any solution.
To avoid infection and reduce pain in a first-degree burn on the tongue: rinse the area well with cool water for a few minutes. Remove any dirt or particles that may be on the burn. Wet a clean cloth with cool water and hold it on top of the burn. Suck on ice chips or a popsicle to soothe the pain. Gargle with cool water or salt water. Avoid warm or hot liquids, which could irritate the burn. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Sprinkle a few grains of sugar on the tongue to relieve pain.

Hello lybrate-user, an erupting wisdom tooth is often associated with pain, swelling, restricted mouth opening etc. Most commonly it is because of infection of the gums surrounding the erupting tooth. I will advise you to visit an oral surgeon/dentist who will most likely prescribe you a short course of antibiotic & pain killers. In the mean time do warm saline rinses and try to keep good oral hygiene by regular brushing. All the best.

You have to quit tobacco to regain your health.Tobacco causes some serious problems like cancer, submucous fibrosis and leukoplakia ,staining and gum disease.The white patches in your mouth may be leukoplakia caused by tobacco. You need to be investigated and diagnosed the cause to decide right treatment plan. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Visit a dentist regularly every 2-3 months for investigation about any transformation.

Always use soft bristles toothbrush and teeth brushing should be done 2 to 3 minutes

BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
Always use soft bristles toothbrush and teeth brushing should be done 2 to 3 minutes
Always use soft bristles toothbrush and teeth brushing should be done 2 to 3 minutes. Because hard toothbrush and lengthy cleaning time cause the abrasion of teeth which can make your teeth sensitive.
Clean your front teeth in a vertical motion and back teeth in circular motion.
Always clean your tongue with tongue cleaner.
Never use needle, match stick, wooden stick etc to remove food in between teeth because these things can cause gums inflammation resulting in pocket formation.
Have a good smile.

There are many causes oc dry mouth most common are -dehydration -diabetes -radiotherapy -taking medicines for a prolonged period as most medicines have a side effect of causing dry mouth -professions where someone has to speak a lot n continuously we need to rule out the actual cause by taking a brief history n some lab investigations.

To begin with, do not pick your bump or flat white spots on your lips. Always resist the urge to do so as this will increase the chances of getting an infection. Rinse your lip with warm salty water (about a half a teaspoon of salt added to a cup of warm water). Swish the mixture in your mouth before spitting it out. Book an appointment with your doctor if the spots bleed, cause neck and jaw swelling, make your tongue numb, you have trouble swallowing, you have fever, sore throat or you feel like something is caught on your throat.
