Vigorous brushing first of all causes many problems like attrition, and is injurious to the gums as well. So please use a soft or medium tooth brush (as per dentists advice) without using much force, brush in vertical and horizontal directions. And all surfaces of the teeth should be brushed. If you use more force it does not mean your teeth will get cleaner. About the swelling, it must be seen by a dentist so that he can detect the exact cause.

All the Mal alignment of jaw depend on severity of discrepancy with upper and lower jaw. If its much then it will need surgical option. If its minor brace therapy may work alone. Just review the dentist and get all assessment done.For better result depending on assessment price can be judged.

The yellow discoloration of teeth can be due to poor oral hygiene. You need to get your scaling (oral prophylaxis) done. Consult a dentist

How Fluoride Keeps Your Teeth Healthy

BDS, Diploma in Hospital Administration, Diploma in Pharmacy
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Fluoride is a common mineral found in several foods, such as milk and eggs. It is essential to oral health. It is so essential that many municipalities pump small amounts of the mineral into their communities' water supply.

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, which helps to prevent tooth decay. When acids from sugary or acidic foods attack the enamel, fluoride creates a wall of defense against erosion.

It is especially important for adolescents to have an ample amount of fluoride in their diet. Adolescents' teeth are still developing and need the extra protection to grow stronger enamel. Adolescents also tend to favor sugary snacks and drinks such as candy and soda. Fluoride in their diet helps protect adolescents against such overindulgence. To help provide enough fluoride for their children, parents need to know some important facts about the mineral.

Where do I find fluoride?

Since eggs and milk contain fluoride, you should include plenty of those foods in your teens' meals. If you live in an area served by a public water supply, check to see if your municipality adds fluoride to its water.

You can also purchase fluoride-containing mouthwash and toothpaste for your kids to use. Even if they don't remember to brush as often as they should, the fluoride in their mouthwash and toothpaste can help stave off tooth decay.

If your kids need a little extra help fighting tooth decay, your children's dentist may prescribe extra-strength fluoride products for them to use. Be sure to take them for a regular teeth cleaning twice a year. Most dentists include a topical fluoride application as part of the procedure for patients from six to sixteen.

How do I keep my kids from getting too much fluoride?

Although the right amount of fluoride is essential to oral health, too much fluoride can cause adverse effects. Keep a close eye on your kids' teeth. If you notice staining, pitting, or a lacy appearance, your child may be getting too much fluoride. Make an appointment with your dentist to have them checked for a condition called" fluorosis"

If children ingest large amounts of fluoride, they may develop diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. For this reason, keep fluoride products out of the reach of young children. Teach your older children the importance of not swallowing their toothpaste or mouthwash, regardless of how good it tastes.

For more information about the best ways to use fluoride to maximize oral health for you and your children, contact your child's dentist. If it's been a while since your children had a teeth cleaning and dental checkup, make an appointment with their dentist today.

All About Dry Mouth

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Dry mouth or Xerostomia is characterized by the drying of the mouth as a result of reduced saliva secretion. Secretion of an adequate amount of saliva helps in chewing & swallowing of food which in turn creates a healthy oral cavity. A recent study showed that women have more chances of getting a dry mouth as compared to men. If not diagnosed on time, dry mouth might lead to mouth infections, severe damage to the teeth enamel and gingivitis.

The symptoms of dry mouth include, but are not limited to:
a. Craving for water in regular intervals.
b. Swollen tongue.
c. Dry eye.
d. Significant trouble while swallowing, speaking or chewing along with disturbing bad breath.
e. Severe headaches and formations of ulcers in the mouth

Causes
1. This condition might occur as a side effect of:
a. Other serious conditions such as GERD, Alzheimer's disease, HIV/AIDS etc.
b. Side effects of medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy; this might result in significant damage to the salivary glands.
c. Side effects of drugs prescribed for diarrhea, nausea, asthma, obesity, depression, Parkinson's disease etc.

2. Abnormal consumption of marijuana, crystal methamphetamine and tobacco might cause dry mouth.

3. It can occur during pregnancy and breastfeeding, dry mouth can be a common occurrence because of acute dehydration.

4. Sleep apnea, snoring and breathing through your mouth instead of the nose on a daily basis might induce dry mouth.

5. Severe damage to the nerves might result in dry mouth conditions.

Treatment
1. A healthy amount of water consumption, about 3 liters every day, will help to keep the mouth wet.
2. Application of toothpaste and mouthwashes containing fluoride twice a day will help to keep the mouth moist.
3. You should change the dosages of medicines after consulting your doctor if Xerostomia is primarily occurring as a result of side effect of the drugs.
4. Prescribed dosage of medicines such as "Pilocarpine" might induce increased saliva secretion.
5. Try breathing through the nose instead of your mouth to avoid Xerostomia.

Hello sir
How to keep teeth clean & white
I brush thrice a day but still it dnt get much clean.
That's good lybrate-user that you are brushing thrice daily. For keeping your teeth clean and gums healthy you should go for scaling once in five to six months. If still you feel the yellowish discoloration than go for bleaching once at a dental clinic. Avoid any beverages such as tea coffees just after using a mouthwash, if you are using any.
