2- Scaling First of all undergo scaling (cleaning of teeth) by a dentist - Use proper brushing technique. - Brush twice a day which is most important (at night specifically just before sleep and avoid any food or liquid except water when you finish your brush at night) - After each meal (i. E breakfast, lunch, dinner and any time when you take snacks) rub your finger on all tooth surfaces inside and outside and than do forcefull gargles 2-3 times. -Visit dentist for regular oral cavity check up every 4 months for the early diagnosis and prevention of dental diseases.

Sir how is root cancer caused what are its symptoms?

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist,
There is nothing like root cancer. Bone cancer or mouth cancer is the correct term.There is no single specific cause for this.But the chances of causing cancer increases while using tobacco, cigarette,alcohol or long time infection.

My question is my left side teeth is paining and I went to the doctor but I didn't get relief. Tell what I can did.
Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

My mouth smells badly even after 5 minutes of brushing. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist,
My mouth smells badly even after 5 minutes of brushing. What should I do?
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.

Pain after Root Canal

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Pain after Root Canal
Some patients even after proper root canal may feel a bit of pain during chewing and get confused with the prognosis of rct or question the expertise of the doctor. In reality it is due to the inflammation persisting in the periapical tissues and alveolar bone. Give it some time it gradually gets healed up. Sometimes it might take even a couple of months but with proper antibiotic coverage and oral hygiene maintenance it does get cured.

How to clean teeth

BDS
Dentist,
How to clean teeth
Gently brush the outside, inside and chewing surface of each tooth using short back-and-forth strokes. Gently brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen breath. Most dentists agree that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth.

Nothing to worry. Visit the doc, let him get used to the atmosphere of the clinic /hospital n get him treated. He mite be a bit fussy but you can make him understand that he would get whiter brighter teeth.

Pain in teeth in night time when I m sleep vrey painful please tell me any answer.

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Ambala
Pain in teeth in night time when I m sleep vrey painful please tell me any answer.
Pain during sleep or lying down is a classic sign of nerve /pulp damage of the tooth. You need to visit a dentist to get the treatment. most probably you will have to get a RCT done followed by a crown. In the mean time you can take some pain-killer like Combiflam tablet. The tablets will give you some relief but definitive treatment requires visit to your dentist. I hope this helps.

Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Drink lots of water. For your tonsils problem you can consult to an ENT surgeon.

Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (Model study, Full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. You may consult me in person.
