Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste 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.

Fluoride and Dental Health

MDS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Fluoride and Dental Health

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. Every day, minerals are added to and lost from a tooth's enamel layer through two processes, demineralization and remineralization. Minerals are lost (demineralization) from a tooth's enamel layer when acids -- formed from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth -- attack the enamel. Minerals such as fluoride, calcium, and phosphate are redeposited (remineralization) to the enamel layer from the foods and waters consumed. Too much demineralization without enough remineralization to repair the enamel layer leads to tooth decay.

a)Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.

b)It also reverses early decay.

c)In children under 6 years of age, fluoride becomes incorporated into the development of permanent teeth, making it difficult for acids to demineralize the teeth.

d) Fluoride also helps speed remineralization as well as disrupts acid production in already erupted teeth of both children and adults.

In What Forms Is Fluoride Available?

As mentioned, fluoride is found in foods and in water. It can also be directly applied to the teeth through fluoridated toothpastes and mouth rinses. Mouth rinses containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over-the-counter; stronger concentrations require a doctor's prescription.

We dentists, apply fluoride to the teeth as a gel, foam, or varnish. These treatments contain a much higher level of fluoride than the amount found in toothpastes and mouth rinses. Varnishes are painted on the teeth; foams are put into a mouth guard, which is applied to the teeth for one to four minutes; gels can be painted on or applied via a mouth guard.(as shown in figure)

When Is Fluoride Intake Most Critical?

It is certainly important for infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 16 years to be exposed to fluoride. This is the timeframe during which the primary and permanent teeth come in. However, adults benefit from fluoride, too. New research indicates that topical fluoride -- from toothpastes, mouth rinses, and fluoride treatments -- are as important in fighting tooth decay as in strengthening developing teeth.

In addition, people with certain conditions may be at increased risk of tooth decay and would therefore benefit from additional fluoride treatment. They include people with:

  • Dry mouth conditions : Also called xerostomia, dry mouth caused by diseases such as Sjögren's syndrome, certain medications (such as allergy medications, antihistamines, anti-anxiety drugs, and high blood pressure drugs), and head and neck radiation treatment makes someone more prone to tooth decay. The lack of saliva makes it harder for food particles to be washed away and acids to be neutralized.
  • Gum disease : Gum disease, also called periodontitis, can expose more of your tooth and tooth roots to bacteria increasing the chance of tooth decay. Gingivitis is an early stage of periodontitis.
  • History of frequent cavities: If you have one cavity every year or every other year, you might benefit from additional fluoride.
  • Presence of crowns and/or bridges or braces: These treatments can put teeth at risk for decay at the point where the crown meets the underlying tooth structure or around the brackets of orthodontic appliances.

Are There Risks Associated With Fluoride Use?

Fluoride is safe and effective when used as directed but can be hazardous at high doses (the "toxic" dosage level varies based on an individual's weight). For this reason, it's important for parents to carefully supervise their children's use of fluoride-containing products and to keep fluoride products out of reach of children, especially children under the age of 6.

In addition, excess fluoride can cause defects in the tooth's enamel that range from barely noticeable white specks or streaks to cosmetically objectionable brown discoloration. These defects are known as fluorosis and occur when the teeth are forming -- usually in children younger than 6 years. Fluorosis, when it occurs, is usually associated with naturally occurring fluoride, such as that found in well water. If you use well water and are uncertain about the mineral (especially fluoride) content, a water sample should be tested. Although tooth staining from fluorosis cannot be removed with normal hygiene, your dentist may be able to lighten or remove these stains with professional-strength abrasives or bleaches.

Keep in mind, however, that it's very difficult to reach hazardous levels given the low levels of fluoride in home-based fluoride-containing products. Nonetheless, if you do have concerns or questions about the amount of fluoride you or your child may be receiving, talk to your child's dentist, pediatrician, or family doctor.

A few useful reminders about fluoride include:

  • Store fluoride supplements away from young children(these are not available in India).
  • Avoid flavored toothpastes because these tend to encourage toothpaste to be swallowed.
  • Use only a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste on a child's toothbrush.
  • Be cautious about using fluoridated toothpaste in children younger than age 6. Children younger than 6 years of age are more likely to swallow toothpaste instead of spitting it out.

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

दांत दर्द की वजह कोई भी हो लेकिन ये बेहद कष्टकारी और असहनीय होता है। दांत दर्द की वजह से कई बार सिर दर्द और यहां तक किी चेहरे पर भी सूजन आ जाती है। ऐसे में आप न तो खा सकते हैं न सो सकते हैं। दांत दर्द किसी भी उम्र में हो सकता है और इसकी तीव्रता भी अलग- अलग होती है। दांतों मे कीड़ा लगना, सड़न होना, दाढ़ कुछ फंस जाना, संक्रमण होना, मसूड़ों की बीमारी वगैरह से दांतों में दर्द होता है।

प्रकृति  से दूरी ने बढ़ाई समस्या
पुराने समय में लोग दांत की समस्या से ज्यादा परेशान नहीं रहते थे, जिसकी एक मुख्य वजह थी प्रकृति़ के करीब होना। लोग नीम के दातून से लेकर कई तरह की जड़ी बूटियों का इस्तेमाल करते थे, जो दांतों की सुरक्षा में मददगार रहती था। उनकी जीवन शैली साधारण और खानपान भी शुद्ध और पौष्टिक होता था। आजकल भागदौड़ की जिंदगी, जंक फूड, केमिकल युक्त पेय पदार्थ ये सब आम आदमी के जीवन का हिस्सा बन चुके हैं। ऐसे में जरा सी लापरवाही भारी पड़ सकती है। आजकल छोटे बच्चों में भी दांतों की समस्याएं देखी जा सकती हैं।

कैसे करें देखभाल

  1. कोई भी चीज खाने के बाद तुरंत कुल्ला कर लें। खासकर मीठा खाने के बाद पानी से कुल्ला करके, एक घूंट पी लें।
  2. गरम चीज खाने के तुरंत बाद ठंडा न खाएं, वहीं ठंडे के बाद गरम चीज न खाएं। ऐसा करने से दांत कमजोर होते हैं।
  3. बहुत ज्यादा गरम और बहुत ज्यादा ठंडी चीजें खाने से बचें।
  4. कोल्ड ड्रिंक के बजाय घर के बने पेय पदार्थ पिएं। नींबू पानी दांतो के लिरए बेहतर ड्रिंरक है।
  5. सोने से पहले ब्रश जरूर करें।

दांत दर्द होने पर क्या करें (घरेलू नुस्खे):

1. तेज दांत दर्द में लौंग का तेल रुई के फाहे में लगाकर दांत पर रख लें। तेल न होने पर लौंग भी दबा सकते हैं। माना जाता है कित, लौंग उस हिस्से को सुन्न कर देता है, जिससे दर्द में राहत मिल जाती है। लौंग में बैक्टीरिया नष्ट करने के गुण भी होते हैं।
2. अदरक का टुकड़ा भी दांत दर्द में मददगार होता है। अदरक के टुकड़े को कुचलकर, दांत में दबाकर, मुंह बंद कर लें। धीरे- धीरे अदरक का रस चूसें, आपको कुछ देर में राहत मिल जाएगी।
3. हींग हर किसी के किचन में मौजूद होती है। नींबू के रस में हींग को भिगोकर दर्द वाली जगह लगाएँ, ये दांत दर्द का काफी कारगर इलाज है।
4. कच्चा प्याज दांतों के लि ए काफी फायदेमंद होता है। इसमें बैक्टीर‌यानाशक गुण होते हैं। अगर आप प्याज खाने से परहेज नहीं करते तो इसे सलाद में शामिल करें।
5. दांत में कीड़ा लगने पर प्याज के रस से कुल्ला करें। रोजाना प्याज का टुकड़ा कीड़े वाली जगह पर रखने पर कुछ दिनों में आराम मिल जाएगा।
6. नमक और कालीमिर्च दांत दर्द में बहुत उपयोगी होता है, क्योंकि  इन दोनों में बैक्टीरियारोधी गुण होते हैं। इसके लि ए नमक और कालीमिर्च में पानी मिलाकर पेस्ट बना लें। प्रभावित जगह पर इसका इस्तेमाल करें। आराम मिलने तक इसे लगाते रहें।
7. लहसुन भी दांत दर्द में काफी फायदेमंद होता है। लहसुन को कुचलकर इसमें सफेद या काला नमक मिलाएं। इसमें दर्द वाली जगह पर रखकर मुंह बंद रखें।
8. गुनगुने पानी और नमक के गरारे से भी दांत दर्द में राहत मिलती है। अगर दर्द की वजह से सूजन आ गई है तो उसमें भी ये फायदा पहुंचाएगा।
9. तवे को आग पर रखें और उसमें पानी डालकर फिटकरी डालें। फिटकरी जब पानी सोख ले तो उसे आंच से उतारकर उसको पीस लें। अब इसके चौथाई भाग में हल्दी मिलाएं। इस मिश्रण को दर्द वाले हिस्से या कैविटी पर लगाएं।
10. पिसे हुए सफेद या सेंधा नमक में तेल मिलाकर उंगली से मालिश करने पर भी दांत दर्द में आराम मिलता है। इस पेस्ट को मंजन के रूप में इस्तेमाल करना दांतों के लि ए फायदेमंद होता है।
11. जामुन के पेड़ की छाल को उबालकर, इसके पानी से कुल्ला करने से मसूड़ों की सूजन मे राहत मिलती है।
12. दांतों से खून आ रहा हो तो भी नमक के पानी से कुल्ला करने पर राहत मिल जाती है।
13. तिल का तेल और लौंग का तेल दांत दर्द में राहत दिलाते हैं। तिल के तेल में नमक मिलाकर दांत की मालिश करें, दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।
14. अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में उबालकर कुल्ला करने से भी दांतों को फायदा मिलता है। अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में काफी देर तक उबालें और इस पानी को ठंड कर लें। बिल्कुल ठंडा न करें, गुनगुना होते ही इससे कुल्ला करें। इससे दांतों की टीस में भी आराम मिलता है।

Dry mouth

Imagine the feeling of a thirst that is so strong it seems it will never be quenched, a constant burning sensation on the tongue, or lips that are constantly dry and cracked. Thirsty yet? Unfortunately, thousands of people, particularly the elderly, are affected by this condition called xerostomia or ?dry mouth.?

Dry mouth is not something to be taken lightly by any means. It can cause a lot of discomfort and have some extremely negative impacts on a person?s quality of life.

When a person has dry mouth, there is an increased risk of cavities and periodontal disease because there is less saliva to cleanse the teeth and gums. In addition, this condition is known to affect a person?s speech, taste sensation and ability to swallow.

When a patient?s salivary glands significantly decrease the production of saliva, or cease production altogether, there is a high risk of cavities or other oral diseases. Saliva is the mouth?s self-cleansing mechanism. It helps remove food debris and plaque from tooth surfaces.

A permanent feeling of dry mouth or decreased saliva flow can be caused by systemic-diseases such as: rheumatoid conditions, dysfunctional immune system, and hormonal and neurological disorders. Biological aging is a contributing factor to this condition, but does not cause dry mouth.

Dry mouth in others can be caused by radiation therapy directed at the head and neck region of the body, which can result in permanent damage to the salivary glands. In addition, there are over 400 drugs that can cause dry mouth as a side effect. The more common drugs are decongestants, diuretics, antihypertensives, antidepressants, and antihistamines.

Many patients that experience dry mouth complain of a sore or burning sensation on the tongue; dry, cracked lips, and at the corners of the mouth; and are often thirsty.

If patients exhibit these symptoms, they should immediately see an oral health professional. With a little extra care, dry mouth can be adequately controlled.

The WDA recommends those affected by dry mouth take the following precautions to keep the mouth wet and reduce the likelihood of cavities or periodontal disease:

Brush and floss teeth at least four times per day (after each meal and before bedtime)
Brush and rinse dentures after each meal
Keep water handy to wet the mouth at all times
Chew sugarless gum
Avoid tobacco, alcohol, sodas and foods high in sugar content
Use moisturizer on the lips to alleviate discomfort.

You will need surgery for either one or both jaws depending on how complex it is. Surgery alone may not sort out the issue as the teeth will also need braces to correct the position before or after surgery for correct treatment. Cost depends on the doctor, hospital and equipment /plates screws used. A private consultation would be appropriate for this. X rays need to be seen.

I am suffering from sensitivity in teeth for last two week. Can you suggest me what to do to prevent from it.
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.
