5 Habits That Destroy Your Smile:

Advanced Aesthetics, MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist,
5 Habits That Destroy Your Smile:
1. Not flossing
Brushing your teeth twice a day is important, but many patients don't realize that flossing at least once a day is just as critical to achieving—and maintaining—a healthy smile. Flossing removes the cavity-causing bacteria left behind from food particles that get stuck between teeth. "Although bleeding and irritation sometimes can occur when you first start flossing, it's important to keep at it," says Dr. Ghareeb. "Your gums will toughen up and your oral health will be better for it."


2. Brushing too soon after eating
Consuming acidic foods and beverages, such as sports and energy drinks, citrus fruits, wine, and tomatoes, can erode tooth enamel—the glossy outer layer of the tooth. Brushing your teeth too soon after eating and drinking these items can cause more damage because you are essentially brushing the acid into the teeth, not getting rid of it. Instead, you should rinse your mouth with water after consuming acidic foods and beverages and wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your pearly whites!


3. Not replacing your toothbrush often enough
Not only are old toothbrushes ineffective, but they also harbor harmful bacteria that can cause infections. Toothbrushes should be changed every three to four months. "It's also important to change your toothbrush after you've had a cold," says Dr. Ghareeb.


4. Excessively bleaching your teeth
Overzealous bleaching can cause your teeth to look unnaturally white and increase tooth sensitivity. Before using an at-home bleaching product, talk to your dentist. "He or she can advise you on proper use of these products as well as which type of bleaching system will provide you with the best results," says Dr. Ghareeb.


5. Using a hard-bristled toothbrush
A hard-bristled toothbrush coupled with an aggressive brushing technique can cause irreversible damage to your gums. Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle, in a circular motion. Using a back-and-forth, sawing motion causes the gums to recede, and can expose the root of the tooth, making teeth extremely sensitive.

How to whiten my teeth they are yellow and dirty but I regularly brush with toothpaste.

M.D.S.
Dentist, Mumbai
How to whiten my teeth they are yellow and dirty but I regularly brush with toothpaste.
Brushing your teeth too hard and/or too often actually causes enamel to wear off and leads to more yellowing appearance of the teeth. Use a soft brush and brush with the correct technique--not with too much force. If you have already lost enamel you can bleach your teeth, the way some ladies bleach their skin to look fairer. There are many teeth bleaching gels in the market, but I would recommend doing this under a dentists' supervision.

The loose motions during teething is primarily due to the habit of the toddlers to put everthing in their mouth and bite on it. The certainity of every thing being clean when they put it in their mouth cannot be judged and this leads to the upset stomach. Buy a good teether to help him chew/gnaw on that and try keeping other things from entering his mouth. This will help.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

I am 41 years old. My gums in the top jaw holding the teeth are going above forming gap between teeth and gums. What is the reason any deficiency and how to get back it to normal position again.

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
You are probably referring to gingival recession, which usually happens in advancing gum disease (Periodontitis). It may also happen due to excessively vigourous toothbrushing. In any case, get it checked so the reason might be identified and appropriate remedy suggested.

At your age there is possibility of third molars (wisdom teeth) erupting. Sometimes due to lack of space, these erupting teeth cause pressure leading to pain. If there is no enough space for these teeth, it will cause food lodgement and infection in gums (pericoronitis). You may need to get x ray done to check for the space available for this tooth, 1. If there is space, you can go for conservative treatment like cleaning and medications 2. If there is no space, you need surgical removal of this tooth.

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

The yellowness of teeth and bad smell can be due to accumulation of plaque on the teeth. Go for scaling and polishing. Use a good mouthwash twice daily after brushing. You can use any gel based toothpaste for bad breath. For yellow teeth, use colgate sparkling white.

Dentist,
My teeth was decay can I remove or just cleaned it up.
We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

My one front teeth is getting blueish in color, why so? and what is the treatment to cure it?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
Sometimes the upper front tooth would have suffered trauma. This trauma will cut off the blood supply to the tooth, the blood inside the tooth cant go back and it gets collected inside the tooth. The blood on stagnation changes its colour. This colour when seen through the enamel may appear blue which may later turn into brown/black. Kindly visit the dentist who may diagnose the problem with the help of a radiograph.
