My wife is suffering from high BP since last 10 years. Her bp pattern remains in range 170/90 for about one month. We have been monitoring regularly at home. She takes a pill LODOS 2.5. Also she has been taking garlic pills. However it never reduces below this level. She is quite reluctant to visit a doctor. Also she has lost 70%of her teeth still she does nt want to visit dental surgeon for treatment. Is this could be a reason for her high blood pressure. Please help.

Hii. The antihypertensive drugs can be the cause for the loss of teeth. Actually what happens is the antihypertensive drugs causes increase in the size of gingiva. Leading to difficulties in maintaining proper oral hygiene. That eventually leads to tooth loss.

You need to have x ray. Then only we can anticipate. So do not wait visit the dentist. But as a general health do brush twice your teeth. And do warm saline rinses 3 times a week. It will give you relief.

Dear there are many things which can decide your treatment plan. As of now - if the tooth got crack below the gums level and can't be saved then go for extraction otherwise retreatment (rerct) can save the tooth.

increase spaces in between your teeth is indication of gum problems which may further loosen your teeth. Proper cleaning, flossing and use of mouthwash can prevent further damage. Consult your dentist for it.

Use dental floss regularly. Avoid mouth breathing as it is the most common reason of gum related problems.

Foods that are firm or crisp help clean teeth as they're eaten. As for example apples (otherwise known as nature's toothbrush); raw carrots, celery, and popcorn can be of help.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need replacement with removable or fixed (bridges & implants) type of teeth. Cost varies with dentist. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user Yellowish teeth can be due to aging or staining from chewable or smoking tobacco or even having food or beverages that stains teeth like tea, coffee, etc. Treatment depends upon the problem and may involve just scaling and polishing or even bleaching (teeth whitening). You should consult a dentist who will guide you regarding the same. Hope this helps.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. 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.

Since you do not have enough space it is advisable to remove your wisdom teeth becaouse it will cause problem in future too. Removing your wisdon teeth noway harm you. If the other teeth is normally erupting let it come out and you do not need any treatment until you have a problem over that particular wisdom teeth.

Hi, Apply clove oil to the affected teeth and gums and gently massage for 2-3 mins. Do this 3-4 times a day. Dental cavities are treated by temporary or permanent filling or putting a cap over the tooth. Consult a dentist for the same.
