On my teeth there are a lot of patches and looks bad. What I have to do for this problem?
FLUOROSIS? Dental fluorosis is the result of chronic endogenic. Intake of fluorides in amounts exceeding the optimal daily dose of 1 ppm. For TREATMENT,Visit a dentist.The method of acidic micro abrasion, followed by remineralisation procedures, assures a considerable recovery of the dental surfaces affected by fluorosis. Best way is capping or veneers for upper front 6 teeth & lower front 6 teeth. Until then use tooth mousse tooth paste. Apply this paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

I have teeth decay, but I really brush everyday two times. What should I do? Please help me.

I have teeth decay, but I really brush everyday two times. What should I do? Please help me.
Sir u need to understand that unhygiene is a major problem for tooth decay but not the only problem. Flossing is as important as brushing . Brushing cleans from outside. But food particles also get stuck inbetween ur teeth. To clean that flossing is required. food habits, malallignment, hereditary.. lot of other causes r also there. So don't worry and without delaying , get filling done in carious teeth.

It is due to gum infection which is again due to calculus deposit on teeth and into the gums. You have to see a good dentist who will clean the teeth with an ultrasonic scaler or a periodontist who is specialised in gum surgery. You have to take medicines and mouth wash. If you are diabetic please check and report that to doctor. If you have any chewing habits or smoking habits please stop that. Please tell the doctor that you have difficulty in taking spicy foods and hard goods and then he will check the mucosa for any specific diseases.

Hello lybrate-user, this is gum infection which develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth. This infection leads to gum swelling and bleeding. I advise you to visit a dentist soon for professional cleaning of her teeth. This will help in removal of these layers. Further swelling will decrease slowly and infection will subside soon. Meanwhile, she can use antibiotic mouth rinses twice a day for two weeks. But only professional help or treatment is not enough. She needs to follow proper oral hygiene habits because this problem is recurring in nature. Brushing twice a day, flossing teeth, rinsing mouth after every meal, and cleaning tongue will help preventing it's re-occurence.

Dear lybrate-user, apke jo daant toote the accident mein wo permanent daant the, milk teeth nhi. Wo dobara nhi ate. Isilie apko artificial teeth hi lgwane padenge, jinhe bridge kehte hain. Har dentist ke alag charges hote hain bridge lgane ke. But average cost is rs 2000 per tooth. Ap implant bhi lgwa sakte hain but wo treatment thoda mehenga hai, about 10000-12000 per tooth.

How to heal bay problem. Its like when I walk up in morning my mouth is full of liquid?
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. However there are medical conditions that causes excessive salivation injection glycopyrrolate reduces secretions in the mouth, throat, airway, and stomach.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.
