Fruits and vegetables which are hard and require continous biting like apples, carrots and corn should be avoided during orthodontic treatment.

After your kid turns one, brush his teeth twice a day with a soft toothbrush. By age 4, make him/her brush their teeth themselves. Do not let them consume sugar-laden candies.

No. Braces can be done in any age. But depends over the flexibility of bone. At elder age, flexibility of bone is reduced. So it would take more time, and treatment would be a bit difficult, that's it.

Both ways are good, but you cannot expect a problem free life. Even man made machines do not have guarantee for ever. All depends on your body response to the treatment. So go for the treatment by your pocket. Implants sounds good but needs skilled team.

Visit a dentist diagnose your ulcers. If you have a systemic disease treating it can cure your ulcers. Increase green coloured vegetables, fruits it can help you. Reducing stress by practising yoga may help you. I suggest you to visit a dentist get proper diagnose donot worry ulcers are treatable.

If your x-ray showing all fine in rct then get your scaling (tooth cleaning) done specially around the tooth in question use chlorhex mouth wash and most importantly do warm saline rinses 4 to 5 times daily (add salt in luke warm water, rotate it in mouth and then spit it out)

Hi tooth sensitivity can be due to enamel erosion because of bruxism, hard brushing and after the orthodontic treatment. Get investigated to rule out the exact cause of sensitivity. Use desensitising toothpaste like thermoseal ra toothpaste for one month. If you cant get relief consult the dentist for laminating or veneering.

Please help for bad breath. I brush properly but I have persistent cough through out the year. In the morning I gargle with hot water to get rid of cough. But bad breath still persist.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Hi lybrate-user, Bad breath is the most common problem now a days. Get scaling and polishing done once and also every time after eating some thing take a dental floss and remove the food particles impacted in between the teeth. Also check out whether you have any deep cavities becoz sometimes food gets impacted in deep cavities may also causes bad breath. Brush your teeth twice daily and use a mouth wash for gargling If still your problem persists check you have any digestion problem.

Hello lybrate-user. Black spot on your teeth is a dental caries. There are four stages involved in decay. If you leave it untreated you may lose your tooth. So visit a dentist soon and get the needful.

Hello Wisdom tooth is always an extra in our mouth. It has no role in our chewing process and has always painful appearance. It is almost horizontal or tilted. It only harm other teeth and sometimes cause cavity in nearby teeth. Pain in jaws may be a part of its presence. It's better to remove it. Yes you can get it removed anytime you want. Regards

What is the best diet to prevent cavities avoid the pain?

BDS, FICOI, MDS

What is the best diet to prevent cavities avoid the pain?

Ever wondered what is the best diet to prevent cavities and avoid all that pain at the dentist?

While food is something that no one can do without, there are some of us who eat to live and others who live and love to eat.

The websters dictionary defines a foodie as: a person who enjoys and cares about food very much

The entire diet and nutrition industry has been conjured around this over or under obsession of food. We have the foodies who indulge in delectable delights and then we have the diet junkies who abstain from everything.

No matter which end of the spectrum you belong to foodie or diet junkie you can't deny the importance of your teeth in enjoying your food.

The ability to eat food is something that we easily take for granted up to the point that we are unable to eat due to poor dental or general health. Loss of teeth can have far-reaching effects not only on your face but also on your general health, lifestyle, self-image and mental state.

Impact of tooth loss


    Altered taste sensation
    Inability to chew
    Reduced or increased salivation
    Compromised nutrition
    Gastric disturbances
    Nutritional deficiencies
    Accelerated aging


Can you imagine a world where you couldn't experience the pleasures of eating your favorite food? biting into delicious slices of pizza or that chunk of yummy chocolate or even a juicy piece of chicken for the meat lovers!

While everyone seems to be on a diet of some sort these days here's what we call a dental diet or a few healthy habits that can ensure you maintain your pearlies and prevent cavities and pain till you're around!

Eating for your teeth

Milk and milk products have proven to strengthen teeth, whether at developing stages of dentition or even as we go through life. Cheese, yogurt, and milk in any form are rich sources of calcium which if not included in your diet should be substituted by a calcium supplement.

Chewing healthy

Soft synthetic processed foods reduce the efficiency and health of our teeth in contrast fibrous foods like apples, carrots and celery are all supposed to stimulate gums and teeth to maintain their optimal functions of chewing, shearing, and biting.

Indulging your sweet tooth

Eat all the pastries, chocolates and candy that you want but rinse thoroughly post meals so no remnants of these get stuck in your teeth to prevent cavities. Sweet dishes are the leading cause of cavity development.

Liquid diet

Drink plenty of water to ensure that the food particles get rinsed off your teeth and the acid content in your saliva is kept diluted.

When drinking something sour like colas and lime juice make sure you have it with a straw. Acidic foods can deplete the enamel layer of your teeth causing wear and erosion leading sensitivity

While science and technology have replaced teeth with artificially fixed substitutes through implants and state of the art replacement techniques, even as experts, we recommend prevention is better than cure!

So a shout out to all you foodies, at least for the love of food make sure you look after your teeth or it can be a very bleak and hungry future out there! take precautions and prevent cavities that are so ugly and painful!
