Sometimes teeth become sensitive after getting a filling done. If the problem persists for more than 2-3 days, visit your dentist for knowing exact cause and remedy of the sensitivity.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

I have developed tooth sensitivity off late which occasionally bothers me. I took merc sol for two days and it worked for me. I think I have chipped off a small piece of tooth on the top left row. Only had guava and some horse gram. What could cause teeth to chip off what can be done to safeguard the other teeth from chipping.

Chipping can result if their is an unusual sudden pressure at a particular area of a tooth or it can also happen if you have caries beneath between two teeth surfaces and sudden pressure can cause fracture of the tooth wall. Depending upon the location & extent, a restoration/ filling or a full coverage crown can be placed to save the tooth from further damage. If because of age attrition of teeth has happened, then a procedure called coronoplasty can be done to get relief from sharp teeth inducing pressure. Good luck!

Hi. The sound that you are describing is a'click' that is heard when there is a problem in the temporomandibular joint (jaw joint). Don't worry, it can be managed. But a thorough clinical examination and radiographic assessment of the joint (x rays) are important. I would advice you to consult an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for a detailed examination and further treatment.

Go for proper subgingival scaling (cleaning) of teeth. Do warm saline swish thrice daily. Use mouthwash like clohex thrice daily. Do not brush aggressively. Use soft tooth brush. Brush your teeth in night after your meals. If condition doesn't subside than visit a periodontist.

Hello lybrate-user. For proper cleanling you should know proper brushing technique. For this you can ask any dentist. They will give you demo. And start using dental floss to take out any remaining food particles inbetween two teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily to keep your mouth germ free and add freshness. Thank you.

Hi, from what I understand, you are talking about your 3rd molar (wisdom tooth). If I am right then I would like to tell you that 3rd molars are prone to getting decayed and stains since its the last tooth in the arch, so regular brushing techniques if not followed properly, tends to accumulate stains and plaque. I would recommended you to consult a dentist to get your tooth clinically evaluated. Regards Dr. Dhruv anand.

Diabetes and Oral Health

During the past 10 years, much research has been undertaken on the link between diabetes and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the sixth leading complication of diabetes. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you are 3 to 4 times more likely to develop periodontal disease, with a higher rate of more severe levels of bone loss and gum infection.1

What Is Diabetes? Diabetes is a serious disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, a hormone needed to convert sugar, starches, and other foods into energy. Normally, insulin helps get sugar from the blood to the body's cells, where it is used for energy. When you have diabetes, your body has trouble making and/or using insulin, so your body does not get the fuel it needs and your blood sugar stays too high. High blood sugar sets off processes that can lead to complications, such as heart, kidney, and eye disease, or other serious problems.2,3

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you are 3 to 4 times more likely to develop periodontal disease.

Are There Different Types of Diabetes? It is estimated that more than 20 million adults and children in the United States have some form of diabetes?14 million having been diagnosed with the disease and 6 million being unaware they have it. There are different types of the disease: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes, as well as prediabetes. Most Americans (around 90%) who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.2,3

What Is Periodontal Disease? Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums, ligaments, and bone that support your teeth and hold them in the jaw. If left untreated, you may experience tooth loss. The main cause of periodontal disease is bacterial plaque, a sticky, colorless microbial film that constantly forms on your teeth. Toxins (or poisons) produced by the bacteria in plaque irritate the gums, causing infection.4

Diabetes Control and Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal disease may make it more difficult for you to control your blood sugar. Your body's reaction to periodontal disease can increase your blood sugar level. Consequently, it is important for patients with diabetes to treat and eliminate periodontal infection for optimal diabetes control. Periodontal treatment combined with antibiotics has been shown to improve blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes, suggesting that treating periodontal disease could decrease insulin requirements.1

What Are the Warning Signs?

DIABETES

Constant hunger or thirstFrequent urinationBlurred visionConstant fatigueWeight loss without tryingPoor wound healing (cuts or bruises that are slow to heal)Dry mouthItchy, dry skinTingling or numbness in the hands or feetMost people with diabetes do not notice any warning signs
PERIODONTAL DISEASE 
Red and swollen gums that bleed often during brushing or flossing and are tender to the touchGums that have pulled away from the teeth, exposing the rootsMilky white or yellowish plaque deposits, which are usually heaviest between the teethPus between the teeth and gums accompanied by tenderness or swelling in the gum areaA consistent foul, offensive odor from the mouth

IMPORTANT: Physicians and Dentists Need to Work Together

It is important that your dentist be kept up-to-date on your diabetic condition and treatment and that your physician be kept up-to-date on your oral condition and treatment, so that they can work together to help you control your diabetes and prevent or control periodontal disease.1

Keep your dentist up-to-date on your diabetic condition and your physician up-to-date on your oral condition.

If your diabetic condition is well controlled, periodontal treatment would be the same for you as for a patient without diabetes. In early stages, treatment usually involves removing the plaque and calculus from the pockets around your teeth. If the periodontal disease is more severe or if your diabetes is not well controlled, treatment will be more specialized and tailored toward your specific condition. Your dentist may recommend more frequent oral prophylaxes (dental cleanings) involving scaling and root planing or may recommend periodontal surgery.1

Diabetes and Your Mouth

Periodontal disease is not the only problem that can occur if you have diabetes. Although you might not be able to prevent these problems, you can minimize the trouble they cause you5:

Dry mouth: Xerostomia occurs when your salivary glands don't produce sufficient saliva to keep your mouth moist, causing tissues in your mouth to become inflamed and sore. It can make chewing, tasting, and swallowing more difficult, as well as cause difficulty in eating, making it more difficult to control blood sugar.Fungal infection: Candida albicans is a fungus that normally lives inside the mouth without causing any problems. But when you have diabetes, deficient saliva in your mouth and extra sugar in your saliva allow the fungus to cause an infection called candidiasis (thrush), which appears as sore white or red areas in your mouth.Burning mouth syndrome: If you feel severe burning and pain in your mouth even though you don't see any problems causing it, you may have this syndrome.Oral surgery complications:If you need oral surgery, diabetes? particularly if poorly controlled?can complicate oral surgery. Diabetes retards healing and increases risk of infection. Your blood sugar levels also may be harder to control after oral surgery. Your dentist should work closely with your physician to minimize possible complications. If you need oral surgery, the American Diabetes Association recommends that you: 
Remind your dentist that you have diabetes and discuss any specific diabetes-related issues.Eat before your dental visit so your blood sugar is within normal range.Take your usual medications. Your dentist should consult with your physician about whether you can adjust your diabetes medications or take an antibiotic to prevent infection before surgery.Plan for your eating needs after surgery. If you're having dental work that may leave your mouth sore, plan to eat soft or liquid foods that will allow you to eat without pain.Wait until your blood sugar is under control. It's best to have surgery when your blood sugar levels are within your goal range. If your dental needs are urgent and your blood sugar is poorly controlled, talk to your dentist and physician about receiving dental treatments in a hospital.

As you run a lond distance u start taking breathing from mouth which lead to precipitation of Saliva and leads to bad breath. No need to worry just keep good hygiene of mouth and have some gum in your mouth when u have long run.
