I am 26 year old. I am having sensitivity problem in my teeth. What should I do? I used sensodyne also. But it didn't work.

Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hi for sensitivity use thermoseal ra toothpaste. Rub gently on sensitive area wait for 5 minutes and then rinse. If you cant get relief after one month of use. Then you need to consult for laminating or veneering.

Am cleaning my teeth daily two times from child hood but my teeth still in yellowish wt should I do for that can you please tell me a suggestions.

Dentist, Mumbai
Teeth are not all pearly white. Teeth may vary in shades of white, whitish yellow, whitish -blue -gray, whitish red etc. Depending on ones genetics, environment, society, race, the shade can vary from ndividual to individual. Still if not satisfied you can get teeth scaling done and bleaching done with a local dentist.

Sugary sticky food are the most harmful ones as far as the health of your teeth is concerned.Try to reduce or atleast club the quantity together to minimise its harm without compromising on the quantity.

I have problem with my tooth, whenever I have cold water my tooth starts paining simultaneously.

Dentist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, your teeth have become sensitive to cold food-stuff and water. Sensitivity may occur due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Brushing your teeth too hard 2. Gum diseases 3. Dental cavity if you are applying too much pressure while brushing, it is likely to lead to a condition called as attrition, wherein the the outermost tough layer of the teeth (enamel) begins to wear, exposing the underlying structures that are more sensitive to cold stuff. If that is the case, you need to use a soft brush and put minimal pressure on your teeth while brushing. Also, you must switch to an anti-sensitivity toothpaste which will help reduce your problem to a considerable extent. In case you have an inadequately maintained oral hygiene, is likely that you may have developed a gum problem, which is manifesting as sensitivity. For that, you would be required to get a thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist. It will solve your problem. Besides the above, dental cavities also cause abnormal sensations to cold water. You will have to get it checked from a dentist, and if such a cavity is present, it may require a filling. Hope that helps.

Please visit a dentist soon. Any tablet that you get over the counter at a pharmacy would just be a temporary solution. Please get proper diagnosis and treatment.

Dentist, Vadodara
First completely quit the habit of tobacco chewing. Start taking some vitamin supplements with lycopene in it. Yours is just the beginning. So don't worry. It can be treated with medication n mouth exercises. Avoid oilly n spicy food completely. Eat healthy and balanced diet.

Hi I mohd khalid khan my age is 18 years from 3 years I am having tooth pain doctors is telling fit a cap I want to ask you the cap is good or not.

Dentist, Gwalior
Since your tooth is paining, you have to undergo root canal treatment (rct). After successful rct, cap/crown is placed to strengthen the tooth as tooth becomes brittle after rct. So naturally cap is required for strengthening left over part of tooth and it also helps to restore the function of tooth properly.

Hi I'm a male I am very lazy I usually get up by 11 or 12 in the morning and thn I brush teeth at 1pm in the afternoon and do not get anything direct I go to eat food or lunch so wat to do I want to get up early in the morning but I don't get up but wat to do how to get up early in the morning everyday please help me please tel me plz.

Dentist, Lucknow
I feel once you will be determinant that you have to wake up in early morning nthing stops you to change your habit. All you need to do is put an alarm of time you need to be waked with louder sound and place an alarm clock quite a distance away from yourself so dat you have to come out of bed to switch it off. Initially it may be painful but slowly you will be used to it. You can do this.

Hello Lybrate User, Bad breath is also known as Halitosis, foul smelling odor that seems to come from the mouth cavity. Dry mouth, certain foods such as Onion and garlic because they contain smelly sulfur compounds., poor dental hygiene are few causes of bad breath. Self care technique can help to minimize bad breath, these techniques are as follows - a. use oral care products, like mouthwashes and toothpastes. b. proper oral care, brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day and use fluoride toothpaste. c. stimulate your salivary flow - prevent dry mouth with chewing gum or mints. d. eat fibrous fruits and vegetables. e. Brush your teeth occasionally with baking soda. e. stop smoking. f. Drink plenty of water. g. Take a dietary supplement - Vitamin C, D, E and B help to eliminate excess mucus and toxins naturally. h. Avoid alcohol. i. Clean your tongue daily. Along with that take Homeopathic treatment, the natural homeopathic remedies for bad breath, which are completely safe and no side effects. Homeopathic remedies provide a permanent treatment for bad breath. For homeopathic treatment consult me on lybrate privately. Take care.

A healthy tooth brush is equal to a healthy mouth. Thoroughly rinsing your tooth brush daily after brushing will keep it germ-free and healthy and let it air-dry before using it again.

Activities like cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging should not be performed by making use of our teeth. It can result in broken or chipped teeth. Our teeth should only be used for chewing food.

So here I got a gap between two of my lower molar teeth, where while eating food get stuck and it starts hurting in my gums. Pls help me with this.

Dentist, Hyderabad
Can you please post an xray of those teeth coz it should investigated first whether that gap is restricted to tooth only or its extending to the bone also. If bone is involved than you need localised flap treatment to those teeth and gap is closed by crowns and if gap is until tooth then no need of flap than a joint crowns r given.

Hi doctor I am 13 year old mere teeths me cavity hai aur mere teethsyellow rehate hain jab main brush karta hoon to green ho jaate hain mujhe suggestion dijiye ki mere teeths white rahe aur main konsi paste use karoon.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •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.

Have small white line inside my cheek I can only feel when I touch it with my tongue bit it is irritating I am concern that it may not lead to some serious issue .i have this line from last 6 days and I smoke cigarette.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Smoking is one of the reasons for mouth cancer. White line is one of the indication of cancer occurring. Your white line may or may not be a precancerous white line. Always it is better to know early at pre cancerous stage so that it can be treated without any complications. Please consult a dentist or head and neck cancer surgeon for a biopsy - a small bit will be taken and sent for detecting cancer cells. Even if it is non cancerous white line, it is better to stop smoking. It may at any time become cancer if you continue smoking. All the best.

Dr I have a cavity in one tooth and partly affected other tooth Dr. Said for root-canal or remove the teeth please suggest me which is the best method ?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Preserving the tooth by root canal treatment is always better than removing the tooth. Nothing can substitute our natural teeth. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.
