Which Toothpaste Should I Use?

Which Toothpaste Should I Use?

Which toothpaste should I use?” 

You want to take care of your teeth, just like anyone. Keeping them clean and healthy enhances your smile while saving you money, because when your teeth are in bad shape, you’ll have to spend more correcting them. One of the basic decisions you’ll face in safeguarding your teeth is which toothpaste to use. Each day, the toothpaste you pick will clean your teeth and will have ramifications for years to come. Here’s a guide on what toothpaste you should use.

The Basics

Toothpaste is only a means to an end. If you buy it and then are lazy about brushing your teeth, it won’t help. Indian Dental Association (IDA) recommends brushing your teeth after each meal (and at least once a day). Brushing your teeth removes all the harmful bacteria and plaque that build up when you eat. No matter which toothpaste you choose, it won’t help unless you’re serious about brushing your teeth.

The Science of Brushing Your Teeth

When you’re ready to decide on a brand, you should understand the basic components of each product. Most major brands of toothpaste include abrasive agents. Don’t worry about that label, though. Abrasive agents are usually helpful.

Abrasive agents are the ingredients that cause the scratchy sensation when you brush your teeth. They’re silicates like hydrated silica, calcium carbonate, and hydrated alumina. Some of these materials are the same as sand, which sounds weird, but the ingredients have a purpose. In combination with the brushing movement of your wrist, they’ll scrub away the bacteria and plaque. Conversely, the brushing motion wouldn’t sanitize your teeth without the silicates. Their purpose is to act as a cleaning agent.

The foam on your toothbrush comes from the detergent in the toothpaste. It works similarly to the products you use to clean your dishes and laundry. A detergent breaks down any undesirable substances. With your teeth, it’s loosening materials that aren’t soluble. The liquid in your mouth will dissolve any that is soluble, but you need help with anything that doesn’t respond to liquids.

The Importance of Fluoride

Any good toothpaste will include other components to make it more effective. Fluoride is the most important one. In fact, it’s the primary reason tooth decay and cavities have declined dramatically over the past 50 years. This naturally occurring mineral protects your teeth when you eat. Every food you consume leaves trace elements of sugar and starch on your teeth.

Fluoride counters this problem in two ways. It strengthens tooth enamel, the protective layer on the outside of your teeth, and that added strength makes your teeth less susceptible to chipping and cracking.

When you consume items that stain your teeth such as coffee, cigarettes, wine, tea, and sugary drinks, the enamel weakens. Fluoride counters this issue, although you should still brush your teeth more often if you smoke or consume any of those products. Fluoride also fights off previous damage by reversing the process of tooth decay. For these two reasons, when you shop for toothpaste, you should pick one with fluoride.

Other Toothpaste Components

Many toothpastes will also include artificial sweeteners. The minty taste that you associate with toothpaste isn’t a natural flavor. Manufacturers add saccharin and other ingredients to make the taste of toothpaste better. Without it, the process of brushing your teeth wouldn’t feel as pleasant. If brushing your teeth left you with a bad taste in your mouth, it might reduce your desire to brush regularly. Toothpaste now comes in flavors as diverse as lemon, grape, and bubblegum to make them more appealing – not just for adults, but for children too.

Toothpaste also includes ingredients to keep the tube from drying out. Without the moisture retention of humectants, your mouth would dry too soon. These are the same ingredients that keep you from having dry skin. Finally, toothpaste uses thickeners to make sure that the actual substance maintains a gooey form.

Which Toothpaste Is Best?

Now that you know the key components of toothpaste, you can pick the brand that’s right for you. If you’re a smoker or coffee drinker, you should choose a product with the highest amount of fluoride. Without a prescription, you’re looking for a brand that’s at least 1,000 parts per million (PPM). A product with the IDA Seal has received independent review and validation of its product claims.

If you’re someone with yellow teeth, you’ll want a brand with a higher number of silicates. A product that includes whitening will gradually alter the shade from yellow back to white. If cavities are a big issue, you want a product with special cavity-fighting power.  If you have a plaque problem, you can prevent tartar buildup with toothpastes that are specifically formulated to fight tartar. Finally, if you have sensitive gums and/or teeth, the best product is one that treats the underlying problem of sensitivity.

As you can see, toothpaste includes a lot of components specifically designed to protect and improve your teeth. No matter the problem you worry about with your teeth, a product exists that can help you overcome the issue. Simply consider your needs and then mix and match from the options above.

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.

Hii lybrate-user. For gaps between your upper teeth. You can either go for braces (orthodontic treatment) or you can go for laminates or veneers (cosmetic filling). For braces visit an orthodontist. For laminates/veneers visit a cosmetic dentist.

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

दांत दर्द की वजह कोई भी हो लेकिन ये बेहद कष्टकारी और असहनीय होता है। दांत दर्द की वजह से कई बार सिर दर्द और यहां तक किी चेहरे पर भी सूजन आ जाती है। ऐसे में आप न तो खा सकते हैं न सो सकते हैं। दांत दर्द किसी भी उम्र में हो सकता है और इसकी तीव्रता भी अलग- अलग होती है। दांतों मे कीड़ा लगना, सड़न होना, दाढ़ कुछ फंस जाना, संक्रमण होना, मसूड़ों की बीमारी वगैरह से दांतों में दर्द होता है।

प्रकृति  से दूरी ने बढ़ाई समस्या
पुराने समय में लोग दांत की समस्या से ज्यादा परेशान नहीं रहते थे, जिसकी एक मुख्य वजह थी प्रकृति़ के करीब होना। लोग नीम के दातून से लेकर कई तरह की जड़ी बूटियों का इस्तेमाल करते थे, जो दांतों की सुरक्षा में मददगार रहती था। उनकी जीवन शैली साधारण और खानपान भी शुद्ध और पौष्टिक होता था। आजकल भागदौड़ की जिंदगी, जंक फूड, केमिकल युक्त पेय पदार्थ ये सब आम आदमी के जीवन का हिस्सा बन चुके हैं। ऐसे में जरा सी लापरवाही भारी पड़ सकती है। आजकल छोटे बच्चों में भी दांतों की समस्याएं देखी जा सकती हैं।

कैसे करें देखभाल

  1. कोई भी चीज खाने के बाद तुरंत कुल्ला कर लें। खासकर मीठा खाने के बाद पानी से कुल्ला करके, एक घूंट पी लें।
  2. गरम चीज खाने के तुरंत बाद ठंडा न खाएं, वहीं ठंडे के बाद गरम चीज न खाएं। ऐसा करने से दांत कमजोर होते हैं।
  3. बहुत ज्यादा गरम और बहुत ज्यादा ठंडी चीजें खाने से बचें।
  4. कोल्ड ड्रिंक के बजाय घर के बने पेय पदार्थ पिएं। नींबू पानी दांतो के लिरए बेहतर ड्रिंरक है।
  5. सोने से पहले ब्रश जरूर करें।

दांत दर्द होने पर क्या करें (घरेलू नुस्खे):

1. तेज दांत दर्द में लौंग का तेल रुई के फाहे में लगाकर दांत पर रख लें। तेल न होने पर लौंग भी दबा सकते हैं। माना जाता है कित, लौंग उस हिस्से को सुन्न कर देता है, जिससे दर्द में राहत मिल जाती है। लौंग में बैक्टीरिया नष्ट करने के गुण भी होते हैं।
2. अदरक का टुकड़ा भी दांत दर्द में मददगार होता है। अदरक के टुकड़े को कुचलकर, दांत में दबाकर, मुंह बंद कर लें। धीरे- धीरे अदरक का रस चूसें, आपको कुछ देर में राहत मिल जाएगी।
3. हींग हर किसी के किचन में मौजूद होती है। नींबू के रस में हींग को भिगोकर दर्द वाली जगह लगाएँ, ये दांत दर्द का काफी कारगर इलाज है।
4. कच्चा प्याज दांतों के लि ए काफी फायदेमंद होता है। इसमें बैक्टीर‌यानाशक गुण होते हैं। अगर आप प्याज खाने से परहेज नहीं करते तो इसे सलाद में शामिल करें।
5. दांत में कीड़ा लगने पर प्याज के रस से कुल्ला करें। रोजाना प्याज का टुकड़ा कीड़े वाली जगह पर रखने पर कुछ दिनों में आराम मिल जाएगा।
6. नमक और कालीमिर्च दांत दर्द में बहुत उपयोगी होता है, क्योंकि  इन दोनों में बैक्टीरियारोधी गुण होते हैं। इसके लि ए नमक और कालीमिर्च में पानी मिलाकर पेस्ट बना लें। प्रभावित जगह पर इसका इस्तेमाल करें। आराम मिलने तक इसे लगाते रहें।
7. लहसुन भी दांत दर्द में काफी फायदेमंद होता है। लहसुन को कुचलकर इसमें सफेद या काला नमक मिलाएं। इसमें दर्द वाली जगह पर रखकर मुंह बंद रखें।
8. गुनगुने पानी और नमक के गरारे से भी दांत दर्द में राहत मिलती है। अगर दर्द की वजह से सूजन आ गई है तो उसमें भी ये फायदा पहुंचाएगा।
9. तवे को आग पर रखें और उसमें पानी डालकर फिटकरी डालें। फिटकरी जब पानी सोख ले तो उसे आंच से उतारकर उसको पीस लें। अब इसके चौथाई भाग में हल्दी मिलाएं। इस मिश्रण को दर्द वाले हिस्से या कैविटी पर लगाएं।
10. पिसे हुए सफेद या सेंधा नमक में तेल मिलाकर उंगली से मालिश करने पर भी दांत दर्द में आराम मिलता है। इस पेस्ट को मंजन के रूप में इस्तेमाल करना दांतों के लि ए फायदेमंद होता है।
11. जामुन के पेड़ की छाल को उबालकर, इसके पानी से कुल्ला करने से मसूड़ों की सूजन मे राहत मिलती है।
12. दांतों से खून आ रहा हो तो भी नमक के पानी से कुल्ला करने पर राहत मिल जाती है।
13. तिल का तेल और लौंग का तेल दांत दर्द में राहत दिलाते हैं। तिल के तेल में नमक मिलाकर दांत की मालिश करें, दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।
14. अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में उबालकर कुल्ला करने से भी दांतों को फायदा मिलता है। अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में काफी देर तक उबालें और इस पानी को ठंड कर लें। बिल्कुल ठंडा न करें, गुनगुना होते ही इससे कुल्ला करें। इससे दांतों की टीस में भी आराम मिलता है।

Hello, bleeding gums and bad breath could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Healthy Habits

Brushing

Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, always be sure to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily. Also, don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth. Finally, make sure to use an fluoride toothpaste. It makes no difference whether you choose a manual or powered toothbrush—just make sure to brush thoroughly twice a day, every day!

I am a 21 year old boy. I have two queries: 1. When will my wisdom teeth erupt? 2. Out of 28 teeth, one tooth has been removed due to germs. Now again one of my teeth got affected by germs. How can I prohibit the further spreading of germs and save my teeth?

Need not worry about eruption of your wisdom tooth. I usually erupts between 18 to 25 provided it is oriented such that it can erupt. Get other tooth treated by a dentist. Extraction is the last resort.

1)Replacement of amalgam restorations 2)Withdrawal of the drug 3)Oral lichen lesions in chronic in graft versus host disease are usually managed with local corticosteroids or other drugs such as tacrolimus. 4)As in OLP the question arises whether one or all types of oral lichenoid lesions are to be considered a potentially malignant disorder In the absence of known etiological factors, the taking of a biopsy should be considered, particularly in case of a non-reticular lesion, in order to exclude the possibility of epithelial dysplasia or even carcinoma in situ or invasive squamous cell carcinoma. The term “lichenoid dysplasia” is confusing and, therefore, should be avoided.

My left side lower premolar teeth was capped about a year back as its cavity was almost touching the nerve bed. The dentist instead to doing root canal suggested to just cap the teeth. Till now it was okay, but now I can feel some sensation in my gum when I bite anything hard with that teeth. It's not pain, but it does wordy me. What do you suggest? can they take off the cap, do a root canal and refix the cap?
