What dental floss should I use? And how many times in a week should I floss my teeth. How to use dental floss?

What dental floss should I use? And how many times in a week should I floss my teeth. How to use dental floss?
All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist. Floss can remove only the supragingival plaque (dirt) in the interdental areas.

It seems you might be having periodontal problem. C/as pyorrhea. You need to get rid of it. It needs aggressive therapy. You need to make a habit of rinsing your mouth everytime you eat something and brush regularly (once in the morning before meals and once at night after dinner, add a mouthwash for better oral hygiene. If the problem persist, you need to consult a dentist for more specific diagnosis and treatment would be tailored accordingly.

Hi. The yellow colour of teeth is the colour of your dentin that reflects thru the enamel. You cannot change it only bleaching is the solution for badly yellowish teeth that will stay only as long you will maintain your teeth. But if the stains are external then ultra sonic scaling will help.

.Change your toothbrush once in 2 months. Choose a brush with a small head so that it can reach the back of the teeth easily. Also if you were sick for a long time, throw that germ-filled toothbrush and get a new one.

Bleaching is procedure for teeth whitening. But you need to get dental check up wether teeth whitening is required or the yellowish stains can be removed by scaling alone. Procedure to get a healthy n bright smile is, scaling & polishing & bleaching.

Hello I want to know there is a yellow layer on my teeth, I had two times bleech on my teeth and it comes again and again, so can you suggest me something to remove it for lifetime. Thanks

The yellow layer is from the staining of oil present in our foods, at the best start doing warm saline rinses every time you take a starchy or oil rich food to prevent that oil to stain your teeth.

Use of Fluoride Products for Teeth

Certified Implantologist, Aesthetic , BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Use of Fluoride Products for Teeth

Fluoride products for the teeth have immense importance in dentistry. Fluoride is one such chemical, the balance of which is highly required for strong and healthy teeth. However, there is an optimum amount of fluoride needed for teeth. Anything lesser than that or greater than that can cause harm and serious teeth and gum problems and tooth decay. The best option, therefore, is to get a fluoride based toothpaste or mouthwash, which will keep on providing the teeth with the optimum quantity of its daily dose of fluoride.

The benefits of fluoride products:
Before delving into the types of fluoride products available, let's have a look at the benefits of fluoride on teeth. Fluorides actually save the teeth from dental caries. It happens such that fluoride makes a certain mineral bonding on the teeth which is called fluorapatite. This is not normally found in human teeth, but when teeth damage is done, then to heal it fast this compound is needed to repair the damages. This adds to the mineral bonding in the teeth and strengthens the teeth.  

The fluoride products:
The various fluoride based products, which you may use are as follows:

  1. Fluoridated water: Fluoridating water is a simple process where the optimum amount of fluoride is mixed with drinking water so that drinking the water automatically keeps on adding fluoride to the body and keeps in contact with teeth. This therapy alone is enough and needs no more therapies generally. But not all water reserves contain this, and it's not possible to add fluorides to all water reserves. That is why the other fluoride treatments are needed.
  2. Fluoride toothpaste: This is one of the most common forms for fluoride treatments. Every common daily use toothpaste contains a 0.22 to 0.312 percent of fluoride, and this is highly beneficial to the teeth for healing of decay and fast repairs. It lets the teeth get stronger. 
  3. Mouth Rinses: Fluoride mouth rinses are an option. The sodium fluorides commonly used in the rinses are used in small amounts in the product which is used just like toothpaste and washed off.
  4. Fluoride foams and gels: The foam and gel are used when the teeth of the child or adult are under high risk of cavities. The foam or gel is rubbed on the teeth, and kept for a while and then washed off. The typical application time is 30 minutes. 
  5. Varnishes: The fluoride varnishes are just like gels, and they are also used on the tooth surface similarly. It's the choice of the dentist or patient as to which one they want to go with. Besides, these slow fluoride releasing devices, medical supplements and lozenges are also there, which slowly release the optimum amount of fluorides to keep the teeth strong and healing.

Hi doctor, I have yellow tooth even though I brush everyday is there any treatment to make it look white and attractive.
Hi normally tooth colour ranges from white to yellowish white. If there is stain on the tooth surface then you need to go for cleaning and bleaching. You can apply mixture of lemon juice and soda bi carb on stained tooth rub gently and rinse. Avoid taking tobacco, gutka, pan, alcohol and smoking. They are carcinogenic.

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.

Bad smell is coming from my mouth what should I do to reduce bad smell.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
Bad smell is coming from my mouth what should I do to reduce bad smell.
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.

Please consult your dentist first, if dentist find your gums healthy you should visit ent specialist. Bleeding while brushing occurs due to gingivitis (inflammation of gum) throat infection may cause bleeding but it occurs on cough mostly.
