FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. FOR YELLOW TEETH: Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. 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.

Get bleaching or teeth whitening once and if needed scaling also. Staining can also because of excess of tea, coffee and chocolate. Brush teeth regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse mouth after eating anything.

The main causes of darkened teeth are genetics, antibiotics, and certain foods, plus teeth tend to darken as we age. You can go ahead with laser teeth whitening followed by ultrasonic oral prophylaxis and polishing .

Hi. There could be cavity in tooth causing pain. Mostly it might go for root canal treatment or if its wisdom tooth then go for extraction. A xray would surely confirm diagnosis.

There is pain in my molar teeth of upper left side of my mouth it is not possible to chew anything with left side.

Hi you may want a root canal to ease your pain if the cavity is very deep. If the cavity is small and not deep a filling will do.

Although no" cure" is known to exist, some centers have very successful therapies, including state-of-the-art lasers. These therapies can be broadly divided into" surgical" and" non-surgical. Surgical removal of the papillomas is the standard of care today. They will not go away with a pill or an antibiotic. Surgical removal also provides a specimen for the pathologist to analyze for the presence of any pre-cancer or cancer. The goal of any surgical procedure is to remove as much of the papillomatosis as possible without scarring the vocal cords, which may result in irreversible hoarseness. Too aggressive of a surgical procedure can result in a voice that is worse than before surgery. On the other hand, insufficiently aggressive surgery is not worth having if too much papillomatosis is left behind. Removal of papillomas usually takes place under general anesthesia in an operating room. Once the patient is fully asleep, a special scope holds open the mouth until the throat can be seen under a microscope (see photograph below). The involved areas should be carefully inspected and mapped out. A biopsy is generally taken, especially if an area looks suspicious. A combination of lasers, micro-instruments and injections are used to treat the involved areas. In advanced centers, the ideal laser to treat papillomas is the ktp laser.

Hello, you can do salt water rinses as a home remedy. But this will give you temporary relief from pain. You need to visit a dentist and get a x-ray done. If required you can get it removed.

DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal.
