I have yellow teeth. I brush 2times a day by colgate but couldn't see any difference what shall I do?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
You need bleaching and poloishing. And after that, maintain it by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after each meal. Floss your tooth to prevent food impaction. Avoid food that cause stains like excess of tea and coffee, chocolates, tobacco products, pan, gutka, alcohol and smoking.

Cigarette Smoking - How it Affects Your Teeth

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Cigarette Smoking -  How it Affects Your Teeth

‘Smoking is injurious to health’, is a caption that is flashed on all cigarette packets. However, what is not told about is their adverse effects on the mouth.  The mouth with the lips, teeth, and gums are not just the first points of contact for a cigarette but also one of the majorly affected parts.

Listed below are how smoking affects the teeth and the mouth at large.

  1. Bad breath (halitosis)

  2. Tooth discoloration (brown to black spotting)

  3. Tobacco deposits on the teeth leading to irritation of the gums

  4. Increased formation of plaque and tartar on the teeth, leading to significant gum disease

  5. Gum disease leads to tooth loss

  6. Increased jaw bone loss

  7. Lower success rate of dental implant procedures

  8. Delayed healing after any oral procedure including extraction, periodontal treatment, or oral surgery

  9. Increased risk of leukoplakia, white patches inside the mouth, which is a precursor to oral cancer

  10. Increased risk of developing oral cancer

  11. Reduces blood flow to the gums, thereby affecting healing

The tiny tobacco deposits sit on the tooth surface and with time, produce brownish stains. These are a constant source of irritation for the gums, causing gum disease. Unlike the regular plaque caused by food, this is much harder and more abrasive on the gums. This leads to damage of the periodontal tissue, which are connecting fibers between the teeth and the gums.  This leads to gradual tooth mobility and eventually loss.

Correlation:  If you are a smoker,

  1. You are at risk for gum disease twice compared to a nonsmoker.

  2. More cigarettes you smoke, greater the risk for gum disease.

  3. More number of years you smoke, greater the risk for gum disease.

  4. Poor response to regular treatment for gum disease.

Management:  The gum disease can eventually lead to tooth loss.  Therefore, the gums need to be protected at all cost to maintain oral health.  Some things to do are listed below, starting from the seemingly innocuous to the severe infections.

  1. Regular cleanings at your dentist's office once in 6 months

  2. Daily brushing and flossing to manage early gum disease

  3. Deep cleaning below the gum line and prescription mouth rinses if there is already existing gum inflammation

  4. Surgery to remove deeply seated plaque and tartar.

  5. Surgery with bone graft to replace the bone lost to periodontitis.

  6. Most important of all, quitting smoking.  This will produce remarkable benefits when the above are followed.

However, if the above are done with continued smoking, the effects will not last long.

Cigarette smoking is one habit, which has way too many effects on way too many working’s of the body and therefore kicking the habit is the best way to manage, not just your teeth, but your overall health.

Hi lybrate-user. Yes you can get a treatment for your malallign d teeth but you hv to be more patient wih the attainment of the results you desire for your self as your growth age has been passed and now your dwntist would have to use a bit more complex treatment to move your teeth within your jaw bones. Bt no worrys it still is possible due to the advancements in tecnologies and procedures now a days. I wud advice you to visit your dentist a hve a complete discussion with him or her becaus every patient has different needs and profile in their mind according to which your doctor has to plan the treatment.

I am suffering from gum flap infection on my wisdom tooth. Please suggest some medicine to cure this.

Dentist, Gurgaon
this is very common condition. what happens is, at that posterior area, it's quite difficult to keep it clean and so food accumulation starts. also this area is highly prone to cavity. but most commonly, this tooth erupts at different angles to which this flap condition is mainly associated. visit a dentist, you need to get this flap removed. procedure is known as operculectomy. but it may reoccur. so I suggest you to get this tooth removed since this tooth has no function in the mouth.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
If blood sugar levels fasting is between 108 to 125 mg and pp 141 to 199 mg /100 ml, is considered as pre diabetes, or impaired glucose tolerance (igt). At this level diabetes can be prevented by restricted diet, exercise and maintaining normal weight. For gums to become healthy, regular massaging of gums and taking vitamin supplements and maintaining oral hygiene is very important.

Eating cheese after a meal has 2 advantages. One, it helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. Two, since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

I always feel smell in my mouth, although I brush my teeth twice a day and using top brands like colgate, pepsodent, please advise

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Get the cleaning done from dentist because one of the most common reason for bad smell is deposits of tartar or plaques around the teeth. By cleaning it will be removed.
