Hello, First Quit the smoking because it can affect you in future. It may Damage your gums and other muscles later. To clean your teeth start brushing twice a day, also use a good mouthwash, and visit a dentist soon for scaling of teeth.

How Soda Affects Your Teeth

Drinks such as regular soda, diet soda, sports drinks, canned iced tea and lemonades can lead to extensive tooth decay, enamel destruction and poor dental health because of the low pH or acidity of the drinks.

Enamel is the hardest substance in the body but it is susceptible to breakdown from acids found in soda/drinks. The more acidic the drink (the lower its pH), the more rapid the enamel destruction. Tooth enamel dissolves below 5.5. It is important to note that exposed root surfaces demineralize twice as fast as that of enamel.
Soda/drinks may contain carbonic, phosphoric, malic, citric and tartaric acids and therefore have an acidic pH. No differences in enamel breakdown were found between regular and diet versions of the same brand.

Reduce the Risk
1 Drink carbonated beverages (soft drinks, soda pop) in moderation.
2 Give infants and toddlers these beverages in a regular cup.
3 Sucking on a bottle or sippy cup filled with these beverages promotes tooth decay.
4 Use a straw to help keep sugar away from your teeth while drinking.
5 Choose fluoridated water instead of fizzy drinks.
6 Avoid drinking soft drinks and fruit juice before bedtime.
7 Rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth soon after using either of these.
8 Get regular dental checkups and cleanings

For mouth ulcers start with scaling and polishing of teeth as seposits over teeth surface could cause ulcers. Start with multivitamin therapy. Reduce stress level. Keep your stomach fit. Avoid spicy food and any habit related to tobacco if you have.

You cannot whiten your teeth yourself, you have to consult a dentist, get your teeth cleaned first followed by tooth whitening.

If you doubt you having tumor and it lasting for 7 months consult a dentist as soon as possible take a biopsy and check the type of tumor. Some need a simple type of treatment some is dangerous do not wait till it start symptoms.
