Dry mouth condition aggravates halitosis (foul breath. Solution is. Take sips of water in between conversations. You have cavities which need urgent filling. If deep enough you will need root canal treatment to save those vital teeth. The cavities are collecting the good when you eat. Then those get rotten and the bad smell happens. Act fast. Maintain good dental health. You are overweight also. Try reduce your weight by diet. Exercise. Give away food rich in fat. Sugar etc.

You need to improve your oral hygiene habit. Only brushing teeth is not enough. Cleaning the tongue & cheeks is also important as food does stick on the tongue also. You can use your soft/medium tooth brush to clean your tongue. Use a good non alcohol mouth wash. The problem will be taken care off.

First xray is needed to know how far the cavity has reached in teeth among its three layers. If cavity is near to the pulp than root canal is advised. If teeth are grossly decayed the post and core treatment following root canal treatment can also yield good result. Last option is to get teeth extracted and bridge of teeth can be fixed or implant placement can be done.

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?
Hi lybrate-user. Yellowish teeth with black spots can be because of two reasons. Because I hav not seen your case clinically, I will tell you treatment for both. 1. First it may be because of deposits and stains on your teeth. Treatment for this is scaling. Very normal procedure for cleaning your teeth and gums. 2. Second, you might be suffering from dental fluorosis. For this you need to visit a good dentist and get the treatment procedure to get a beautiful white smile. Thank you.

Wisdom Teeth - Reasons Why You Should Get It Removed!

Wisdom Teeth - Reasons Why You Should Get It Removed!

The last molar teeth in the mouth are called as wisdom teeth. While in some people they erupt completely into the mouth and function with no problem whatsoever, in others, they remain embedded in the bone, erupt incompletely, erupt at an angle, or are covered by bone or a flap of tissue. They are absent in many.

Of late, dentists recommend removal of wisdom teeth, more a preventive than remedial measure. Some of the reasons for wisdom tooth removal are listed below

  1. Impaction: Often, wisdom teeth do not have enough space to erupt in their normal position. This can only be evaluated properly on an x-ray. If the x-ray shows that the tooth is unlikely to erupt because of being blocked by a root or bone, this needs to be removed.

  2. Pericoronitis: The tooth partially erupts into the mouth but is covered by a flap of gum. This attracts food and bacteria to accumulate, leading to decay and infection, a condition called as pericoronitis. Very common in the lower wisdom teeth, it leads to severe tooth pain, painful swallowing and swelling of the lymph nodes. This is the most common cause for wisdom teeth to be removed. An x-ray will reveal the tooth to be infected and sometimes periapical abscess may also be present.

  3. Cysts: Impacted teeth can develop fluid-filled cysts which can cause severe and even permanent damage to the jaw bone, adjacent teeth and nerves. Dentigerous cysts are the most common type.

  4. Alignment: Misaligned wisdom teeth exert a constant mild pressure on the adjacent teeth which can hamper the alignment and reverse the effects produced by braces. The bite may be altered also, thereby necessitating removal.

  5. Adjacent Tooth Damage: If the malposed wisdom tooth is causing pocket formation or decay in the adjacent teeth, it is time to get them removed.

  6. Recurrent Sinus Infections: With their proximity to sinuses, there could be constant pain and pressure and infection of the sinuses. This is another indication for their removal.

However, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. If they have erupted fully, are healthy, produce a good bite, and can be cleaned easily, they do not require removal.

During the teenage years and through 20s, check with your dentist on the health of the wisdom teeth. X-rays can be taken to monitor them and for early identification of problems. If they need to be removed, it is easier to take them out when you're young. The bone surrounding the impacted tooth is less dense, and therefore easier. The ability of the body in general and the jaw bones in particular to heal is also better at a younger age.

Looks like You are suffering from periapical abscess of one of your teeth. A course of antibiotics and analgesics followed by either root canal treatment or removal of infected tooth is advised. Consult your dentist for further management.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

You may have sensitive teeth causes can be: fractured teeth worn out old filling gum diseases tooth decay/ cavities hard tooth brushing loss of tooth structure/ tooth enamel exposed root a healthy tooth has an enamel layer which protects your tooth by acting as a natural crown on the tooth. Enamel is the part above the gums. The enamel structure is also the strongest in a human body. Below the gums are the roots which are covered by cementum. And the enamel and cementum have dentin underneath them dentin is not as dense than enamel and the cementum and it contains microtubules these are small hollow canals. When the tooth loses its enamel or cementum the dentin is exposed, i. E the tubules are exposed allowing heat, cold, acidic or sticky food to reach the nerves and the cells inside the tooth. Exposure of dentin may also lead to receding gums. Thus leading to hypersensitivity. These sensitive teeth need to be treated. The type of treatment is governed by the cause of sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest you one of a variety of treatments.

Reason for bad breath may be due to deposition of tartar and plaque on tooth surface or pus formation in gums. You should go through cleaning of teeth by the dentist and thorough dental check up.
