Tips for a Healthy Mouth

BDS
Dentist, Bhopal
Tips for a Healthy Mouth
  1. Clean in between your teeth using interdental brushes or floss. This will help to clean a higher portion of the tooth and prevent the build-up of plaque
  2. A diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fresh fruit and vegetables can help to prevent gum disease
  3. Eating and drinking naturally weakens the enamel on your teeth, and brushing straight afterwards can cause tiny particles of enamel to be brushed away. It is best not to brush your teeth until at least one hour after eating
  4. Chew sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva to help prevent your mouth from drying out
  5. If you are a nervous patient, make sure your dentist knows this, including what you most dislike about treatment
  6. To test if you have bad breath, simply lick the inside of your wrist, let it dry and sniff. If the smell is bad, you can be fairly sure you have bad breath
  7. Always tell your dentist about changes to your health, as it may help them prevent gum disease from developing
  8. A glass of water is the best drink to give your child after eating sugary foods
  9. Brush your teeth just before you go to bed and before you have anything to eat or drink at breakfast
  10. Use a mouthwash containing anti-bacterial to help control gum disease.

Foods that are firm or crisp help clean teeth as they're eaten. As for example apples (otherwise known as nature's toothbrush); raw carrots, celery, and popcorn can be of help.


Which foods and drinks containing sugar cause tooth decay? In my teeth every morning blood is coming automatically.

Chocolate s, sweets, candies, sticky food, cocacola, pepsi, etc cause tooth decay if not rinsed properly after taking them. If blood is coming then go for scaling. Gums bleed when there is infection.

Kindly get scaling and polishing done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Seeking immediate medical attention after a tooth has fallen is very important. Till then one can try keeping it in place or wrapping it in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Hello lybrate-user, it is good that you are aware about your teeth alignment. Please visit an orthodontist in your nearest location to understand the severity of your condition. Time required to bring you best results varies. Do not hurry in time, look for quality treatment.

Aapka daant tut gya hai. Kaha tak tuta hai ye janne ke bad uska treatment decide ho skta hai. Agar tute daant ka pulp damage n hua ho to daant k upar composite filling kr ke use pehle jaisa build up kr skte hai. Agar pulp damage hua hai to root canal treatment krni pdegi. Aur us daant ka root fracture hua ho to most probably wo daant niklvana pdega. Aap dentist ke pas jaie aur uski advice leke treatment krvaie. Possible ho to apke tute daant ka photo aur uska x-ray krvaya ho to x-ray ka photo muje mail kijiye. So that I can advice you about treatment.

Hi, tooth has become non vital (dead) thats the reason for the black color. If tooth is firm, get root canal treatment done and further you can go for cap.

Hello everyone! Most of times our concerns are the yellow deposits around the teeth. We brush hard thinking that they will get removed. But truth is that even if you brush 100 times a day, they won't come out. These yellow deposits are films of bacteria and can only be removed by a dentist by procedure known as Scaling. If you don't want these deposits, floss and use a mouth wash daily. Because your toothpaste doesn't conatain anti bacterial agents in sufficient quantities.

There is absolutely no need to have any fear. Dental Treatment are painless nowadays. In your case firstly clinical evaluation is a must to differentiate whether you have Decay there or just the space which can be filled using Composites. So kindly go for proper consultation and plan accordingly.

My teeth is in yellow color and hair is in black to white colour why? Please help me.

My teeth is in yellow color and hair is in black to white colour why? Please help me.
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. 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.

Dear lybrate-user, for better alignment of teeth, we need to create some space in the jaw towards which the teeth will move over the course of treatment. If you go ahead without extraction, the existing teeth in your jaw will become crowded and overlap one another due to lack of space. Hence, such extractions are necessary during most orthodontic treatments (braces). Also, unlike what was traditionally believed, these extractions do not adversely affect your eyesight or any other part of your body. These notions are totally mythical and have no scientific basis. Please go ahead.

Oral thrush is a fungal infection which occurs due to dry mouth, uncontrolled diabetes and weak immune system with debilitating disease or patient on corticosteroids. You may need fluconazole & renal safety dosage of amphotericin b (iv drugs to be used only with the advice of oral & maxillofacial surgeons). Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need candid ointment until then. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash. Advance procedures can be done with laser.
