I have fluorosis marks on teeth. Planning to go for crowns on front two upper teeth And composite veeners for remaining. Advise if its good or not.

MBA (Healthcare), BDS
Dentist, Chennai
Composite veeners wil get discolor after some years and it will break if you bite hard substances with front teeth hence better go for zirconia or all ceramic crowns itself. If it is a small fluorosis marking you can go for composite veenering ceramic crowns wont get stains and it will be like that itself as like the first without any discoloration after some years.

Imidiatily stop the habit (take some nicotine gums). It can be cured but for this you should take first step and visit nearest Dentist for further treatment. Because we can't prescribe any medicine without examination. Although Burning sensation, reduce mouth opening all these are sign of OSMF (Oral submucous fibrosis) but we can confirm this only after examining.

I brush daily two times but my tooth still lite yellow how to solve and also I have cavity how to solve.

BDS
Dentist, Kolar
Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If you r not happy with your teeth shade later, you can get bleaching done by dentist which'll lighten your teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively you can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth. Get your cavities filled by dentist as there r no home remedies to cure it.

I will suggest you to send pictures of your teeth. Because degree of yellowness has to found out first. And there are different treatment options for how much your teeth yellow. Whether toothpaste or professional cleaning or bleaching is required that can be suggested only after inspection of teeth.

Bleeding of gums occurs due to vit. C deficiency. Kindly do take food rich in vit. C like lemon, orange. The other aspect of this bleeding may be inflammation or swollen gums, for which you probably need a scaling.

Do warm water gargles, avoid anything cold. Get X-ray done to check if the wisdom tooth is erupting normally. A small surgery to remove flap over tooth may be require if tooth erupting in normal position. If tooth is impacted surgical extraction may be required.

Cavities - All You Need To Know!

Dentist, Mumbai
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.

Even after getting my teeth cleaned bad odor persists my saliva becomes thick overall my mouth feels uncomfortable after having milk especially or after any meal wat do you suggest other than getting cleaned by dentist?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

I am bleeding my teeth, bad breath and I tried all toothpaste but not effect any else.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

By using a wire brush, gently clean between brackets (under the wires) to get the plaque off. It is very necessary to keep the mouth free from plaque during the orthodontic treatment.

I have chronic periodontitis, what should be the treatment plan for this, can it be reversed?

MDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Chronic periodontitis means severe inflammation and bleeding gums that occurs due to food accumulation in gums due to improper oral hygiene, it cannot be reversed. Get a deep scaling and cleaning done from a dentist, also start brushing after each meal.
