There is nothing better and more beneficial for the teeth than coconut oil. It has a very strong effect in cases of fungi, microbes and bacteria and according to studies it can kill tooth decay bacteria in no time.
Just one spoonful of coconut oil has the ability to prevent your teeth from decaying and can help you clean them much better than regular toothpastes, and it doesn’t even have side effects like in the cases of mouthwash products and fluoride.
The strong effects of coconut oil were researched at the Athlone Institute of Technology, where Irish scientists found out that coconut oil can inhibit mouth bacteria, especially in cases of candida albicans.

How can coconut oil prevent tooth decay?
By destroying the candida albicans, it prevents your teeth from developing dental diseases. The growth of candida albicans is helped with processed foods and sugar, and can also lead to other illnesses related to the digestive system. The scientists discovered that coconut oil has strong effect on common bacteria that help in teeth decay, such as the S. mutans, which is the primary cause for bad teeth, and have suggested that the coconut oil enzyme is a powerful alternative to chemicals that we use to protect our teeth.

I am having mild teeth pain since few days. And some time pain will not be there and some time it will be there.
The toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain.

सच में दांत का कीड़ा वीड़ा कुछ होता नहीं है, यह केवल दांत की सड़न है जिसे पता नहीं कितने समय से लोगों ने कीड़े की संज्ञा दे दी और बस परंपरा के चलते वही नाम चल निकला और इस गलत नाम को और भी पुख्ता किया उन सड़क-छाप दांत का इलाज करने वालों ने जो परेशान मरीज़ को रूमाल में कुछ कीड़ा सा निकाल कर दिखा देते हैं। दरअसल बात यह है कि दांतों में खाना फंसने की वजह से उन पर जब मुंह में मौजूद लाखों-करोड़ों जीवाणु (bacteria) टूट पड़ते हैं तो एसिड (अमल) पैदा होता है जो दांतों को साड़ देता है....एक बार शूरू हो जाने पर यह एक सतत प्रक्रिया है....यह फिर धीरे धीरे दांतों में छेद पैदा कर देती है, सड़न तो होती ही है, जिस से कालापन रहता ही है, इसलिए इसे बुलाया जाने लगा दांत का कीड़ा।

There are so many causes of bleeding gums - - brushing too hard - poor oral hygiene. - vitamin deficiency - taking blood thinners or other medications - bleeding or clotting disorders - mouth sores - other medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, leukemia or scurvy few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.

Bleaching for Extra White Teeth

BDS
Dentist,
Bleaching for Extra White Teeth

The smile is the first thing we notice about a person, and more than anything else, it reveals the teeth first. We all yearn for that set of perfectly aligned teeth that are pearly white in color. However, this is not a reality in all people.

Due to various reasons, the teeth are not always bright and white. In some cases, the high fluoride content in the water can lead to fluorosis, which causes irregular patches on the teeth. Chewing tobacco and smoking are another reason for teeth discoloration, ranging from yellow to brown to black. The most inevitable of all reasons is ageing, where they naturally change to a darker shade of yellow. However, dental technology has also improved to come up with various solutions, so that the dream for that set of pearly whites can be made a reality.

Bleaching is by far the most commonly used method for teeth whitening. The tooth has an outer layer called enamel, a next layer called dentin, and a final inner layer called the pulp. The enamel contains organic particles that give the tooth its color, and the bleach material attacks these organic particles and thereby removes the stains.

It is always advisable to use tooth bleaching under the supervision of a dentist. A thorough examination and diagnosis is required before deciding on one of the two modes of bleaching.

  1. In-office bleaching: This involves use of whitening gels that are not available over the counter. The gel is applied on the discolored portions of the teeth to leave a whiter tooth behind after the stipulated time.
  2. Home bleaching: In cases where more regular application is desired, the patient is given a kit which has customized trays and the whitening gel. The patient is educated on a schedule including how and when to apply the gel and instructions for this application.

In addition, for minor discolorations, there are other options as below:

  1. Whitening strips: These strips are similar to adhesive bandage and contain the bleaching agent. They are applied onto the tooth and left for usually about 30 minutes to take effect.
  2. Brush-on whitening: These gels are applied directly on the tooth and left for a while or overnight if required.
  3. Whitening chewing gum: For the chewing gum lovers, this could be an option. These chewing gums are similar to any chewing gum but include bleaching agents.

Side effects: Sensitivity and gum irritation are the two common side effects of bleaching. This could be either from the chemical or the trays that are used. The need to repeat the treatment again is another shortcoming. Repeated visits to the dentist may be needed once or twice a year to maintain the pearly white smile!

How I can get rid from pyria? Due to this in my teeth bleeding is generated? Please give me solution?
Hi. Its because of poor oral hygien. Sometimes it also occurs due to some systemic problems like hormonal disturbances particularly in your age group. Get consulted to a dentist. Use a gum paint to massage your gums and also do warm saline rinses twice a day morning and evening for ten days. It will certainly help you.

Hello for mouth ulcers firstly take vitamin b complex everyday one tablet anytime. Also apply anabel gel on that ulcer and don't rinse but you can spit. If you are suffering frequently then most probably you must be suffering from acidity take pantoprazole dsr every morning empty stomach.

Regular brushing, flossing and using mouthwash will help you maintain good oral hygiene. Apart from that go for scaling once in every 6 months.

Imol 1-1-1, thrice daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, allergy), c. Becosules 1-0-0 once daily all for 3 days only. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

I feel diagnosis is important. You have to visit a oral medicine specialist for diagnosis. Ulcer there are numerous causes stress, trauma, hormonal changes, certain medications, Git disease, vitamin deficiency, anemia and many more reasons. Get it diagnosed by a doctor or dentist and get treated. Sadly trying home remedy without diagnosing and removing the cause is not going to help you. Increasing greeny vegetables and fruits in diet and stress reducing excercises, yoga may help you.
