Hello Ms. Lybrate-user hope you doing well. Yellowish discoloration of the tooth can be extrinsic or intrinsic. Intrinsic means that since your childhood you have the same color of the teeth that is inside the tooth. Extrinsic discoloration is because of factors like excessive tea, coffee, smoking, some medications. Extrinsic stains go away by getting professional cleaning done and using some whitening toothpaste. In intrinsic stains you have options like bleaching, veneers, laminates.

My sister has bleeding from the tooth for the past two and a half months. She cleaned her mouth once. She is using chlorhexidine mouth wash. We took an opg, the report is normal. We took blood tests (bt-3min 15sec, ct-6min 45sec, platelet count-1.60, haemoglobin-12.1, blood sugar-91) everything came normal. But till bleeding continues. What we have to do now? is there any reason for this bleeding from teeth? please answer me thanks.

MDS
Dentist, Kota
It seems that there is nothing wrong with her blood profile so the thing left is health of your sister's gums. Any infection/ inflammation of gums leads to bleeding, so get her teeth cleaning done again and tell her to maintain oral hygiene good. You may need to take some antibiotics and vitamins. But to prevent recurrences you have to be very punctual about hygiene measures. Do visit your dentist once in 3 months initially and 6 months later on.

Cavities - All You Need To Know!

Cavities - All You Need To Know!

Cavities, or tooth decay, is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth. It can be a problem for children, teens and adults. Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel. The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and over time the enamel can break down. This is when cavities can form. 

A cavity is a little hole in your tooth. Cavities are more common among children, but changes that occur with ageing make cavities an adult problem, too. Recession of the gums away from the teeth, combined with an increased incidence of gum disease, can expose tooth roots to plaque. Tooth roots are covered with cementum, a softer tissue than enamel. They are susceptible to decay and are more sensitive to touch and to hot and cold. 

It’s common for people over age 50 to have tooth-root decay. Decay around the edges, or a margin, of fillings is also common for older adults. Because many older adults lacked benefits of fluoride and modern preventive dental care when they were growing up, they often have a number of dental fillings. Over the years, these fillings may weaken and tend to fracture and leak around the edges. Bacteria accumulate in these tiny crevices causing acid to build up which leads to decay. 

You can help prevent tooth decay by following these tips: 

  1. Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  2. Clean between your teeth daily with floss or inter dental cleaner.
  3. Eat nutritious and balanced meals and limit snacking.
  4. Check with your dentist about the use of supplemental fluoride, which strengthens your teeth, and about use of dental sealants (a plastic protective coating) applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (where decay often starts) to protect them from decay. 

Consult a dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral examination.

I'm having discomfort because of my braces. Is it gonna affect my brain? Please help me.

BDS, MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist, Howrah
I'm having discomfort because of my braces. Is it gonna affect my brain? Please help me.
No its definitely not going to affect your brain or any part of your body. Its totally normal to have discomfort with braces initially. It happens because your teeth are moving slowly inside your jaw as the braces are aligning your teeth with mild force. You can rinse your mouth with lukewarm water to get temporary relief from this discomfort. The discomfort will subside on its own after two days.

Is there any method to prevent further recession of lower teeth in order to prevent their shaking to strengthen gums. Please tell me.

Hello, good morning, gum recession occurs due to lack of oral hygiene and accumulation of plaque which contains bacteria which causes redness, swelling of gums and bleeding gums. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a complete oral check up and prophylaxis that will maintain your teeth and gums in perfect position.

This might be due to injury on the inside of the tooth. This can be avoided by getting your teeth checked by visiting a dentist. He / she will do an x ray and pulp vitality test and then the treatment can be initiated.

Hello sir, I am facing sensitive tooth problem since last 4 days what I should do?

Hello sir, I am facing sensitive tooth problem since last 4 days what I should do?
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. 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.
