Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Advise c. Amox 500mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Metrogyl 400mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. 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. 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.

Please get complete treatment from your dentist. Initially, it is painful but after few visits pain subsides completetly.

I visited my dentist for straightening of my 26 years old sister' front teeth. He advised me for pre molar teeth extraction and told that it may take 2 years in complete treatment. Before that he is going to start pyorrhea treatment. I want to know has my dentist advised me right? how pyorrhea is treated? is this a surgical treatment? how much it costs? is teeth extraction 100 % safe or there is any risk? will after teeth extraction my sister smile/eat like normal?

Upper arch expansion is newer approach for gaining space instead of extractiing premolars. So i' ll advice you not to go for extraction. Pyorrhea is infection of gums that makes your teeth weak & associated with bad breath. It is treated by nonsurgical means, scalling( cleaning debris deposit over your teeth) & root planing. Adjunct: chlorhexidine mouthrinse & warm saline mouthrinse.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Hi. Grinding teeth or bruxism causes enamel attrition on the occlusal (upper) surfane of tooth. Results in dentine exposure and sensitive tooth. There are some orthodontic appliances known as mouth guard and occlusal splints which helps to get rid of this habit. Physiotherapy can also help.

Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with gum strengthening , whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. 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.

Brush your teeth twice daily but this is not sufficient it is must to massage your gums after brushing and after each meals. As gums are living tissue when you massage your gums the blood circulation improves and the adoption to teeth becomes better and also soft food remnants which has penetrated after having meals would come out this will not let bacteria growth and prevent gums from inflammation otherwise the food remnants which continues to build up the deposit called plaque which can lead to gingivitis later advance to periodontis wherein the inner supporting bone is destroyed by bacterial deposit surrounding the gum and bone thus weakening the teeth. This bones are shockabsorber as in vehicle's they take up the pressure of chewing food. As you do service to your vehicles similarly this is a daily service in your mouth thus massage your gums after brushing and after each meals you will never have bleeding gums or any kind of chronic infection around gums and teeth, thus teeth remains stronger may be life long. Good oral hygiene means maintains good overall health and keeps your other systemic disease undercontrol.
Stronger gums keeps your teeth stronger life long.

Looking for a dental floss for everyday use? Here you go! The Nylon (or multifilament) floss made up of many strands of nylon and available in various flavours works excellently in removing plaque and debris from the mouth if used properly because it has a tendency of getting torn between teeth with tight contact points.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
