Hello, somewhere you are lacking in the brushing technique. Yellowish/whitish thing could be plaque. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. He/she will teach you the proper maintainance. Brush twice a day. Night brushing is important. Floss regularly, rinse after every meal.

Hi, there are various reason for toothache like worn down enamel, tooth decay, gum issue. I would advise you to visit dentist who can give you exact cause and solution of your problem after a physical check up. Without checking you clinically we can't suggest you anything.

Hello lybrate-user, If you want to loose fat you should get enrolled in a gym with a good trainer. Chewing gums will not help you in any way. Regards

I am 74 years old . An old RCT done is now become painful. Local dentist tried to remove the filling to do the RCT again but has failed to remove the old filling to required depth . Suggesting extraction . Can extraction be avoided

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Yamunanagar
Dear, First of all very sorry to hear that you are in pain. About the extraction, I would say yes it can be avoided. You need to visit an Endodontist (RCT and Fillings specialist). He will definitely retriev the remaining filling material and perform a re RCT. It will not only save your tooth but also the money required to replace the tooth If you let me know your city, I can help you in finding a good Endodontist. Till the you can take painkillers, whichever suits you the best. Good Luck, God Bless and Take care.

Cavities and braces are two different identities. To correct your malaigned teeth you need braces, whereas foe restriction of tooth decay you need to fill your decasyed teeth. Extraction of premolars for orthodsontic braces is quite a natural phenomenon. Discuss with your dentist for further evaluation.

Go for scaling and polishing. This will clean your teeth and whiten it a bit. Than maintain it with brushing twice daily with use of mouthwash. Gargle forcefully with water after you eat or drink anything. Limit your food intake to 4-5 times a day. Avoid sticky and junk foods.

I'm 22 year old male. Every morning saliva forms in my mouth unusually as soon as I realize that I'm awake. Even I spit it once, it forms again and this thing repeats again and again until I brush in the morning. This thing also happens before sleep at night many times where I don't brush and slowly fall asleep with continuously spitting the saliva. This thing is happening to me for 7 months from now but never happened before. What should I do?

Hypersalivation also called ptyalism is excessive production of saliva. It has also been defined as increased amount of saliva in the mouth, which may also be caused by decreased clearance of saliva.Hypersalivation can contribute to drooling if there is an inability to keep the mouth closed or in difficulty in swallowing the excess saliva (dysphagia). Reasons for Hypersalivation are---------- 1.Gastroesophageal reflux disease, in such cases specifically called a water brash, and is characterized by a sour fluid or almost tasteless saliva in the mouth. 2.Excessive starch intake 3.Mouth ulcers. 4.Oral infections 5.Liver Problems 6.Medicines----certain medicines initiate salivation if you are presently on medicines for any problem. Treatment of your problem can be done by treating the underlioned factor causing salivation.

Hello you mentioned that you have gaps in your teeth. If the gaps are due to cavities, get them filled. But if you have been suggested ortho treatment, then it is not necessary that teeth have to be removed. If space is already present, then I do not see the need for removal until unless opposing teeth are posing a problem for their alignment. Please see an orthodontist/dentist to get full evaluation done. If the teeth has to be removed, the space created will be adjusted and closed by moving the teeth backwards. The healing of the sockets, if taken care properly is uneventful and usually heals in 5-10 days.

When cavity griws deeoer it infects pulp and cause decay of crown oortion. If remaining tooth structure is very small in this case doctor suggests to remove the tooth. You can opt for dental implant or bridge after removal. If there is possibility of rct you can go for it.

All About Hyperdontia

Master of Dental Surgery
Dentist, Gurgaon
All About Hyperdontia

Hyperdontia is a peculiar and quite rare dental problem which involves the growth of excess number of teeth. It can appear during birth and last till the primary teeth fall out to be replaced by the permanent set of teeth, or appear with the rise of the permanent teeth. If a person shows a tendency to grow more than 20 temporary teeth or more than 32 permanent teeth, he or she suffers from hyperdontia. 

Where do the additional teeth occur?
The additional teeth or supernumerary teeth can appear anywhere inside the mouth or dental arch, but the most common ones are called wisdom teeth and they grow as anterior molars after a certain age. Extra teeth in new born infants are called natal teeth. Occurrence of more than 4-6 supernumerary teeth is rare, although there have been known cases of more than 30 supernumerary teeth. 

Why does hyperdontia occur?
1. Hyperdontia often occurs in association with a few select disorders like cleidocranial dysplasia, Ehler - Danlos syndrome, Gardner syndrome, and cleft lip and palate. 
2. Although the exact cause of hyperdontia has not yet been discovered, some studies have shown that it might be a result of over activity of dental lamina during the phase of tooth development in infancy. 
3. It could also possibly be due to genetic or environmental factors. 

What problems does it pose and how can hyperdontia be corrected?
1. The existence of extra teeth often causes problems in speaking.
2. It may also cause deformation in the mouth region, and impediments in a lot of other functional activities like eating. 
3. In rare cases, the extra tooth/teeth may be agents of tumors or cysts. 
4. Therefore, treatment must be swiftly undertaken so as to remove the extra teeth and prevent rise of further teeth in the same spot. 
5. Sometimes, hyperdontia also leads to overcrowding and misshapen rows of teeth; this can also be corrected with extensive procedures.
