I was checking tips related to teeth on Lybrate and floss is recommended at a lot of places. Few of these questions popped up in my mind : 1. I am curious why it is not common in India? 2. I watched few videos on youtube to learn the proper way to floss. After watching the videos I felt like it will be loosen the gums as one is putting the pressure on them also. Second I felt like it will start thinning the enamel also from the teeth. I am worried unnecessarily or care should be taken while flossing?

Remember flossing is to be used only for cleaning the between the teeth areas and is used to prevent the deposition of food particles which can lead to infection and has to be used cautiously and even in india though slow the trend is picking up and remember if you have already loose teeth than not to be done and it won't thin the enamel lining.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.

I am a 30 year old male & I have 2 problem wright now 1. Bad smell is coming from my mouth. 2. Hydraucil without surgery, is there any natural treatment.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floslybrate-usereyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

The procedure you want would be undertaken depending on the placement of the tooth. Because unnecessary grinding of tooth can lead to sensitivity. Please visit a dentist and get a radiograph done.

Everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. The shade of your teeth matches your skin colour. Still you can go for scaling and polishing. For more whiteness, go for bleaching.

You probably require a scaling done. Deposits and plaque in the mouth can cause bad breath. Brush twice daily, floss, use non alcohol containing mouth wash. Clean your tongues upper and side surfaces daily. Some medications can cause saliva output to decrease and worsen bad breath. And obviously some foods too like onion and garlic!

Are you taking any medications for any other ailment? If so they could cause dry mouth .If so ask your physician for change of the drug. Avoid tobacco in all forms.Sip a lot of water throughout the day to keep wetting your mouth. Avoid oily, spicy, fatty foods, avoid alcohol.Brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride tooth paste, do regular dental flossing.

Pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, dry mouth. Gum disease, and fracture of tooth. You need to be investigated and diagnosed first for proper treatment plan. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water or ibuprofen 1 tablet after meal. Rinse mouth three times with chlorhexidine mouthwash after each meal.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS, Medicine
Dentist, Mohali
Sensitivity of teeth is the problem. As you feel cold when you take cold drinks and all. Well you must be having decay/cavity in your teeth so you need to consult a dentist, get xray done and get filling done! bleeding. You need to get scaling & polishing of teeth done!

Hi, I have a habbit of taking honey with warm water early in the morning. Can I continue this after oil pulling. Can I do oil pulling with sesame oil or should I do only with coco nut oil.

PG Fellowship In Microdentistry, BDS
Dentist, Thane
Oil pulling is a very primitive way or cleansing your teeth it may not be very helpful. I would suggest ideally not to rely on the same.

Hi! My daughter is 12 and she asks for braces for correcting her teeth line, which I agree to. What age is apt for getting this done? Need to know the basic difference between retainers and braces. Thanx a lot in advance!

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist, Kolar
Yes good question. Orthodontic treatment starts from 9 years were we do any growth modulations procedures and between 12 to 13 year is write time because all permaments teeths will be in oral cavity. Retainers are only given after completion of the treatment to retain the corrections achieved following the course of treatment. And braces are brackets which we put during treatment.

Bad breath is mostly due to gum issues or cavities. One of the major causes for bad breath is gingivitis or periodontitis these are gum diseases. You need to see a nearest periodontist or a dentist and get your teeth cleaned.
