Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. 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. 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.

I am suffering from mouth ulcers since 1 week. What should I do?
Apply dologel 3-4 times a day for 5-7 days. Dont swallow the medicine. Eat healthy foods and increase intake of water. Avoid spicy and heavy food stuff. Get back to me after 5 days.

I can't eat spicy food. My mouth always burns if I do that. Is it happening because of my smoking habit?

Yes smoking is one of the prime factor causing sub mucous fibrosis which ultimately leads to damage of soft tissues in oral cavity which results in burning sensation while having food. First and primary treatment is quitting the habit of smoking.

Kind of toothbrush to be used by adults: we recommend a brush with soft bristles which helps in removing the plaque and debris thoroughly from the mouth.

Options for replacing missing teeth are 1. Removable dentures (u are currently using) 2. Fixed partial dentures (wherein we take support from adjacent teeth provided they are strong enough to give support) 3. Implant. Sir, implants are placed under anaesthesia hence painless and will not take more than 45 mins. If you trust your doc and his abilities, give him your nod and let him try and gv you permanently fixed teeth.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

Looking for a dental floss for everyday use? Here you go! The Nylon (or multifilament) floss made up of many strands of nylon and available in various flavours works excellently in removing plaque and debris from the mouth if used properly because it has a tendency of getting torn between teeth with tight contact points.

I visited my dentist for straightening of my 26 years old sister' front teeth. He advised me for pre molar teeth extraction and told that it may take 2 years in complete treatment. Before that he is going to start pyorrhea treatment. I want to know has my dentist advised me right? how pyorrhea is treated? is this a surgical treatment? how much it costs? is teeth extraction 100 % safe or there is any risk? will after teeth extraction my sister smile/eat like normal?

Upper arch expansion is newer approach for gaining space instead of extractiing premolars. So i' ll advice you not to go for extraction. Pyorrhea is infection of gums that makes your teeth weak & associated with bad breath. It is treated by nonsurgical means, scalling( cleaning debris deposit over your teeth) & root planing. Adjunct: chlorhexidine mouthrinse & warm saline mouthrinse.
