Hi my son teeth is very big and unbalanced his age is 12 year please tell me how to solve the problem.
Your son is a 12 year old, but the permanent teeth which are erupting in his mouth are of the size of a fully grown adult, this is absolutely normal. The size will get matched as he grows up. If the teeth are not in a proper order or crooked in nature, please consider consulting an orthodontist, or a child specialist dentist.

Gum diseases, if treated at the initial stage itself can be reversed easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored.

Importance of Brushing With Tooth Paste!

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Importance of Brushing With Tooth Paste!

Brushing with toothpaste is important for several reasons. 

  • First and foremost, a toothpaste and a correct brushing action work to remove plaque, a sticky, harmful film of bacteria that grows on your teeth that cause cavities, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss if not controlled. 
  • Second, toothpaste contains fluoride, which makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before the damage can even be seen. 
  • Third, special ingredients in toothpaste help to clean and polish the teeth and remove stains over time. Fourth, toothpaste help freshen breath and leave your mouth with a clean feeling.

What type of toothpaste should I use?

 As long as your toothpaste contains fluoride, the brand you buy really does not matter, neither does whether or not it is in the paste, gel or even powder form or containing a certain flavor. All fluoride toothpaste work effectively to fight plaque and cavities and clean and polish tooth enamel. Your toothpaste brand should bear the ADA (American Dental Association) seal of approval on the container, which means that adequate evidence of safety and efficacy have been demonstrated in controlled, clinical trials.

If your teeth are hypersensitive to hot or cold, consider trying a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. These "desensitizing" toothpaste, which contains strontium chloride or potassium nitrate, protect exposed dentin by blocking the tubes in the teeth that are connected to nerves. Desensitizing pastes must be used for at least one month before any therapeutic effects are felt.

Toothpaste containing baking soda and/or hydrogen peroxide (which are both good cleansing agents) give the teeth and mouth a clean, fresh, pleasant feeling that can offer an incentive to brush more, but fluoride is the true active ingredient at work protecting your teeth. Some prefer a tartar-control toothpaste containing pyrophosphates to prevent the build-up of soft calculus (tartar) deposits on their teeth. New pastes offer advanced whitening formulas aimed at safely removing stains to make teeth brighter and shinier, although they can't nearly match the effectiveness of a professional bleaching formula administered or prescribed by a dentist.

How much should I use?

Contrary to what toothpaste commercials show, the amount of paste or gel needed on your brush for effective cleaning does not have to be a heaping amount. Simply squeeze a pea-sized dab of paste on the top half of your brush. If you brush correctly, holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush inside, outside and between your teeth, the paste should foam enough to cover all of your teeth. Children under age 6, however, should be given a very small, baby pea-sized dab of toothpaste on their brush. 

Is brushing with toothpaste enough to fight cavities and gum disease?

No. Although brushing thoroughly after each meal helps, flossing your teeth every day to remove plaque and food particles between teeth and at the gumline is just as important. Studies show that plaque will regrow on teeth that are completely clean within three to four hours of brushing.

Bleeding gums are a sign of gum infection. Go for professional scaling and polishing of teeth. Maintain proper oral hygiene habits. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Forcefully gargle with water after you eat or drink anything.

Brush teeth twice a day. Floss daily. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Brush or scrape your tongue. Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. Consult a physician too. Adv. cleaning, filling of all tooth cavities to avoid food stagnation that eventually cause a foul smell.

I am 30 years old, female. I am having Oral submucosa fibrosis with impacted tooth. I cam open about 1.5 finger mouth. The doc has asked me to go for operation. That will be by done general anesthesia and it is a major operation. They did not prescribe any medicine. I do not whether they are doing for the money or not. Should I take Ephcorlin 2.5 mg and lycored with exercise? Should I go for local injections? I am looking for your help.

Your mouth opening is less than 50 percent and it is very difficult to get access to 3rd molar in this case. If condition is acute and painful then surgical extraction from external side is only option because oral submucous fibrosis takes time to get treated. If impacted tooth is not causing any problem in that case firstly oral submucous fibrosis can be treated with medicines and local injections and physiotherapy.

The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.

BDS, Master of Hospital Administration
Dentist, Patna
Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.
Food sources of calcium. 1. Cereals grams and their products like roti chapati etc. 2. Milk and milk products 3. Calcium supplements like selcal or calcium sandoz. 4. Vitamin d is responsible for the formation of calcium so you can take food rich in vitamin d. 5. Sunlight is the best source of vitamin d. 6. Cholecalciferol supplements. Tooth decay is due to the action of bacteriae thriving on the food particles coated in the form of plaque over your teeth which us invisible to the human eyes and needs CONSULTATION WITH DENTIST. There is no medicine to stop decay but it can be minimized by following the directions given by the dentist. Hope it solves your problem.
