How can I whiten my teeth at home? It looks yellow and I'm not comfortable with my smile. What can I do?
hello if you are using power form or ayurvedic to clean your teeth. your teeth become more yellowish with time because powder is more abrasive it will wear outermost layer of tooth enamel. and tooth become more yellowish due to exposure of inner layer dentin which is more yellowish. So avoid vigorous brushing. bleaching can be done. Which can improve your tooth shade

It is necessary to do 2 times brush in a day or which paste should we apply.?

It is necessary to do 2 times brush in a day or which paste should we apply.?
Yes, brushing in the morning and after dinner is necessary to keep the surface of the teeth clean and reduce plaque/tartar formation. The paste is not really as important as how you brush. Do not brush in a horizontal direction- always brush away from the gums. And clean every surface of each tooth.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. You may consult me in person. 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.

FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. FOR YELLOW TEETH: 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.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Sometimes a cavity is just too deep to be fixed and may require a root canal. Root canal procedures are used to treat problems of the tooth's soft core, otherwise known as dental pulp. The pulp contains the blood vessels and the nerves of the tooth, which run like a thread down into the root. The pulp tissue can die when it’s infected or injured. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. During a root canal treatment, the dentist removes the pulp, and the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Your dentist may then place a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger and protect it.

You are having cavity with pain means cavity has reached to the nerve. Now this cavity can't be simply filled, it requires root canal treatment.

My question is to an eminent Dentist; I have recently approched a dentist for filling one of my teeth which broken a bit and as it is no pain or sensitivity. He suggested a refill and I sat for it. But while working on it almost 75% of the teeth came out and he compleated the procedure. Now let know whether this teeth last long or required a replanting?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
It all happened bcz of poor judgement prior to treatment and now if you saying 75 percent tooth is gone then it should have been restored with 'post and core buildup' followed by crown...If your dentist has put fiber post and restored with good composite followed by crown then you are safe...otherwise it won't last very long...

Sir i am 24year old my mouth small open but gutka eat but kuch tablet batlaye jisse my mouth full open

Sabse pehle to tum gutkha khana chhodo kasam khao ke main kabhi gutkha nahi khaunga uske baad ek aadat banao jo main bata rha hu 1. Muh me jyada se jyada paani bharne ki koshish karo jisse ki tumhare gaal failenge to muh bhi jyada khulne ki koshish karega aisa din me kitni hi baar kabhi bhi kar skte ho isme koi harz nahi hai 2. Agar tum ghar me puja paath karte ho to ek aadat ye bhi banao ke mujhe do time subah aur shaam ko shankh bajan hai aisa tum jitna jyada karoge utna achcha hoga 3. Abhi jitna muh khuk rha hai utne barabar space me tum ice-cream sticks dabane ki koshish karo aur roz ek ek stick badhate rho kaam karega 4. Gaal k ander side dono taraf haldi ka paste(ghar me peesi haldi ko paani ke saath mila ker toothpaste ki tarah paste banao) lagao aisa tum roz lagatar ek mahine tak karo ye bahot hi ram baan ilaaj hai tumhara muh khulne lagega 5. Inj. Kenacort 1ml hafte me ek bar ek mahine tak lagane se bhi muh khulne me madad milti hai

Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.
