Dentist,
You have halitosis. You may have gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition on teeth surface. Dry mouth abcess in tooth may also cause bad smell. Scaling will help you if there is plaque. You need to be diagnosed properly to decide the treatment you need.

5 Habits That Destroy Your Smile:

Advanced Aesthetics, MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist,
5 Habits That Destroy Your Smile:
1. Not flossing
Brushing your teeth twice a day is important, but many patients don't realize that flossing at least once a day is just as critical to achieving—and maintaining—a healthy smile. Flossing removes the cavity-causing bacteria left behind from food particles that get stuck between teeth. "Although bleeding and irritation sometimes can occur when you first start flossing, it's important to keep at it," says Dr. Ghareeb. "Your gums will toughen up and your oral health will be better for it."


2. Brushing too soon after eating
Consuming acidic foods and beverages, such as sports and energy drinks, citrus fruits, wine, and tomatoes, can erode tooth enamel—the glossy outer layer of the tooth. Brushing your teeth too soon after eating and drinking these items can cause more damage because you are essentially brushing the acid into the teeth, not getting rid of it. Instead, you should rinse your mouth with water after consuming acidic foods and beverages and wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your pearly whites!


3. Not replacing your toothbrush often enough
Not only are old toothbrushes ineffective, but they also harbor harmful bacteria that can cause infections. Toothbrushes should be changed every three to four months. "It's also important to change your toothbrush after you've had a cold," says Dr. Ghareeb.


4. Excessively bleaching your teeth
Overzealous bleaching can cause your teeth to look unnaturally white and increase tooth sensitivity. Before using an at-home bleaching product, talk to your dentist. "He or she can advise you on proper use of these products as well as which type of bleaching system will provide you with the best results," says Dr. Ghareeb.


5. Using a hard-bristled toothbrush
A hard-bristled toothbrush coupled with an aggressive brushing technique can cause irreversible damage to your gums. Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle, in a circular motion. Using a back-and-forth, sawing motion causes the gums to recede, and can expose the root of the tooth, making teeth extremely sensitive.

If you are constantly engaged in sports related activities, always wear a mouthguard to protect your mouth and orthodontic appliances while the treatment is going on.

Dentist,
How to whiten my teeth?
Hi, there are various method / products available to whiten teeth. The most effective is in-office whitening done by a dental professional. It's usually a one hour procedure in which whitening gel will apply to the teeth and activate by whitening light for 10 to 15 minutes. 2 or 3 such sessions may required.

No shortcuts. Teeth colour is natural. But if you want to change it then bleaching is only option left. Keep your teeth free from tartar, plaque etc.

Every morning bleeding to my gum what should I do.

Dentist,
Every morning bleeding to my gum what should I do.
First of all get your teeth cleaned with scaling and curettage and then the need of paste comes. Calculus can not be removed by pastes alone. And bleeding gums can be because of various other reasons too. Please send me your systemic profile to help you in a better way.

Dear lybrate-user. Tooth has natural tendancy to go back to their place. So treatment will be completed in one and half year. For next 6 months you have to wear retainer plates to maintain the treatment out come. So total duration 2 years. You can also ask your dentist for esthetic braces if you are concerned. Those are slightly costlier than regular one. Regards.

MDS Prosthodontics

This could be due to stress, it is called as aphthous ulcers, if it is so you can apply mucopain gel before food to avoid irritation caused by spicy foods, and do salt water gargling 3 times a day within a week your ulcer will start disappearing.

These days you have more options for tooth replacement. Most durable method is dental implants. In this process implants are fixed inside the jaw permanently. Other option is removable or fixed partial denture. Time and cost depends on the treatment you choose. Dental implants are little expensive than partial dentures.

You can sent an opg of your teeth then I can answer correctly. Paste is not substitute for proper dental treatment. Any the problem can be solved if you can sent photos of your teeth and gums.
