In between my rt. Canine tooth and next there occurred a tunnel like gap inside my gum up to the deep inside. I feel always an irritating sensation. I was prescribed trypsin with bromelain & rutoside trihydrate tablets by my dentist, but I am not fully cured.How can I get rid of this problem?

MDS
Dentist, Lucknow
Dear, It would be wise to get the tunnel like gap restored to the shape tooth otherwise the space serves as an area of food lodgement and recurrent infection.

No, home remedy is there to get rid of bleeding gums. scaling has to be done to remove all the deposits on the teeth and to maintain the oral hygiene. this will also solve your problem of bleeding gums.

Wait as far as you could and then go for rct in those teeth which are not wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth if not impact must not be extracted.

I feel strong pain in my gums while brushing my teeth. I'm using Oral-B toothpaste. Is it safe to use?

Dentist,

A tooth paste does not contribute to the pain in the tooth. You should meet a dentist soon and get to know the reason behind the pain. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your question. 1) bleeding gums for a prolonged time may be due to gum inflammation mainly gingivitis.(depending upon its grade and severity it may be of several types). 2) all we know that if our oral hygiene is poor it may cause infection in our gum and surrounding teeth. Bleeding gum is a infection of gingiva caused by various bacterial species depending upon its severity. 3) oral hygiene maintenance is the 1st line treatment followed by oral prophylaxis (scaling) and regular tooth brushing particularly at night. Use 0.12% chlorhexidine m/w regularly twice a day initially.

Hi, Ms. Lybrate-user toothcaries affecting a tooth can be treated only at the clinic. But prevention can be done at home. Preventive measures 1. Daily twice brushing your teeth. 2. Using mouth wash (chlorhexidin) after brushing 3. Cleaning your mouth after every meal / sweets or anything.

You need to improve your oral hygiene habit. Only brushing teeth is not enough. Cleaning the tongue & cheeks is also important as food does stick on the tongue also. You can use your soft/medium tooth brush to clean your tongue. Use a good non alcohol mouth wash. The problem will be taken care off.

We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Hello. When brushing twice a day and flossing doesn't help improve your yellow teeth, it's time to consider other options. Teeth become yellow due to stains – both deep and surface-level – as well as other causes that sometimes aren't under our control. Although coffee and cigarettes leave stains on your teeth over time, thin tooth enamel also makes teeth look yellow. Tooth enamel is the hard, white surface of your teeth, and underneath it is a pale brown substance called dentin. Thick enamel looks white, but thin enamel allows dentin tones to show through, making teeth look yellow from the outside. Enamel naturally wears thin as people age, but acids from foods and drinks such as sour candies, oranges and soda also thin the enamel by eroding its surface. Saliva neutralizes acid and washes it away, but people suffering from dry mouth miss out on this protective effect. Other causes of yellow teeth include antibiotic use or excessive fluoride intake in young children, which can cause yellow-stained adult teeth later. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development. Certain medication, mouth rinses can also causes yellow staining. Preventing Yellow Teeth: Avoiding smoking, coffee and soda helps prevent yellow teeth, or you can get into the habit of drinking those darker beverages through a straw. Drink milk or plain water after eating or drinking something acidic to help reduce the acid's eroding effect. Brushing and flossing also help, and avoiding snacks between meals allows your saliva to dilute the acids in your mouth too. Using over-the-counter whitening agents will also helps. Discolorations are generally responsive to bleaching procedures.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Kindly get a full mouth xray done to check for the positioning of the wisdom teeth. And later. Wisdom teeth usually erupts between the age of 17 to 25. It really depends on the jaw size too. Kindly get a check up done at the dentist.
