Visit a dentist. The method of acidic micro abrasion, followed by remineralisation procedures, assures a considerable recovery of the dental surfaces affected by fluorosis. Best way is capping or veneers for upper front 6 teeth & lower front 6 teeth. Until then use tooth mousse tooth paste. Apply this paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Hope you don't have smoking ,chewing tobacco products or drinking alcohol habits as you have mentioned none of this. Also you do not have any systemic problems like diabetes. Coming to your problem, you can choose Close up fire freeze toothpaste. It will prevent foul smells for longer. Clean your tongue daily. It will prvent foul smells further. You can use Listerine mouthwash twice daily. It will again improve your problem. At your age of 55, I would not suggest you to chew on sugar free gum but you can chew on coconut as often as possible. It has fibres which naturally and effectively enhances flushing action of saliva. Still, if no improvements observed after at least one week trial, please visit a nearby dentist to get a professional cleaning and polishing. Let him find the actual reasons and treatment accordingly. THANK YOU.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Does oil pulling really whiten your teeth? And can I do it daily? How it overall affects my teeth?

It doesn't whiten like bleaching. Yes it prevents staining. It's a very good healthy habit if you do it daily for both your teeth and overall health. It prevents decay and improves gum health.

Dear Lybrate user, you can get braces for improving the appearance of your teeth at any time. Visit an orthodontist to get your teeth examined and the doctor will explain the full treatment plan in detail after taking some full mouth xrays and impression models.

Hi smell and pain can be due to gum problem known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. You need to go for cleaning and scaling. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily.

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.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.
