5 Quick Tips For Healthy Mouths

5 Quick Tips For Healthy Mouths

Cavities and bad teeth are the most common complain of children around the world. It is never too early to start inculcating good dental habits in your child. You can begin even before your child has his or her first set of teeth. Begin by being a good example and taking care of your own teeth. Along with that, here are a few dental tips to keep a bright smile on your child's face.

  1. Get a dental check up: Your child's first visit to the dentists should be when he is she is around a year old. Even if your little one only has two teeth by this time, the dentist will be able to take a look at how the child's teeth are developing. The first dental visit should be followed by regular checkups.
  2. Check your water: Your child needs water with fluoride in it. This protects the teeth. Bottled water usually does not contain fluoride and hence should not be used to make the baby's formula or given to the baby. Additionally, ensure that the baby's mouth is cleaned of all milk residues, etc. before he or she goes to sleep. 
  3. Brush teeth: Once your child has his first set of teeth, it is time to teach him how to brush them. Ideally, teeth should be brushed twice a day for two minutes each.  Use a soft bristled toothbrush for your baby with a smear of fluoridated toothpaste. Brushing your teeth with your child will give them an example to follow and make it easier for them to learn how to brush their teeth. You may introduce your child to flossing once they are 6 years old. 
  4. Avoid sugar: Candy and chocolate is the leading cause of cavities in children. Sugar releases acid that takes up to half an hour to be cleaned by saliva. Thus, frequent sugary snacks can leave your child's mouth acidic for longer and make it more susceptible to cavities and tooth decay. 
  5. Meal times: Maintaining regular mealtimes not only gives your baby a healthy lifestyle, but also affects their dental health. Instead of letting your child sip out of a sipper cup throughout the day, encourage him to drink a glass of juice in one sitting. Juice contains sugar and hence this has a similar effect to snacking in the day. When using a sipper cup also pay attention to the back of your child's upper front teeth. Since the sipper cup positions itself behind these teeth, this may be the first to show signs of tooth decay.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

Suffering from wisdom teeth pain. They growing away outside from jaw. And itching my cheeks under skin. Please help me.
Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your" third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it.

Brush teeth, tongue and gums at least twice a day, eat foods that stimulate the production of saliva like grapefruits, lemons and oranges, if the cause of the bitter taste is gerd or indigestion, adjust one's eating time, drink a lot of water, use cinnamon or cloves, make use of regular peppermints or breath mints.

Hello Lybrate user, thanks for your query. To get your teeth into correct alignment you need Orthodontic treatment (braces). The treatment duration may range from 1.2 - 2 years depending on your severity. Since you are looking for low cost, you can opt for traditional metal braces. You need to visit an Orthodontist (Braces specialist) for an in clinic check up for detailed information.

tooth whitening can be done.Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling 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.

It doesn't whiten like bleaching. Yes it prevents staining. It's a very good healthy habit if you do it daily for both your teeth and overall health. It prevents decay and improves gum health.

On Jan 15th I had met with accident and I lost my upper first two teeth and also from left third one is damaged but its I had root canal Now my question is Dental bridge for for teeth is better or implant? If I go for dental bridge can I bite hard items while eating? Which is the best quality dental bridge for front 4 teeth? Thanks in advance. :-)

Dentist, Trichy
Weather u can do implants or bridges can be determined dep on ur age, bone density n various other factors. Consult your dentist for evaluation of the same. And coming to biting hard food, its not advisable be it metal ceramic or full ceramic bridge or implants. Long term biting with dental bridge or implant may cause cracks ,ultimately leading to breakages. Food cut into pieces n eating s advisable. Full ceramic bridges are recommended as far as aesthetics is prime concern.

You cant get get cold in cheek, simple, your cavity might have gone deeper, / your dentist might have done a composite/ metal restoration(amalgam withoutliner) this often causes acute pulpitis, or even there can be high pionts in the filling(restoration),does it give you pain on biting?
