This is the underlying color of dentin. This happens because of aging and abrading of enamel. Start using a colgate sensitive toothbrush and colgate sensitive toothpaste, also you can use the mouthwash of the same name.

Hi you have gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque or tarter deposition. Get it removed by scaling. And take care of your oral hygiene. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

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.

Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Bad breath can be due- *Infections in gums, teeth or oral mucus of the mouth. * Sinusitis, nose block and tonsillitis will also cause this problem. *Dryness of mouth * If the teeth are crooked, ulcers may be caused and food particles may get stuck causing infection. *Eating and digestive disorders. *Dental plaque * Taking some medicines for other diseases. Taking care of your oral hygiene- •Use proper tooth brush and fluoride based tooth paste. Tongue cleaning is also very important. •Gargling your mouth after eating any food. •Avoid tobacco and smelly masala foods. •Treat underlying medical conditions •Crooked teeth to be corrected by braces at early age.

Pain killers like ibuprofen and aspirin can be taken to lighten the inflammation or pain caused by the root canal treatment.

I am 37 years old female. I have been to a doctor recently to get my lower front (previously re-root canal treated ) two teeth temporary crown removed and get the permanent crown fixed as I was under braces treatment previously. But the crowns were tightly fixed and my lower one teeth is moving now. The doctor is saying to get both the tooth removed and with adjacent good teeth support get a bridge done. Please suggest some alternatives as I do not want to loose my tooth. How much does it cost for one tooth implant?

Dear lybrate-user, you should opt for implant treatment as your young and the hassle of root canal treatment is avoided. Charges depend on the qualification of the dentist but normally it starts anywhere between 20-25 k. Regards.

Hi lybrate-user, Happy diwali. I appreciate that you have quit chewing tobacco. This is one of the withdrawal symptom that you are having, just try and have a glass of water before having food, or try having a candy before having meal. Ai think this should solve away your problem.

Have you taken an x-ray of the wisdom tooth ie erupting. If not,kindly take it and consult with a dentist as he or she might be able to tell u whether it is erupting in the right way because wisdom tooth generally erupts in different patterns and gives trouble. Till the time you can do warm saline gargles as this will keep the area clean by removing any food lodgement in that space and can take paracetamol or crocin for mild pain.

Brush twice a day and floss daily even when your braces are on. The food particles get stuck into the braces very easily. It is very important to keep them clean.
