Is it advisable to extract all four wisdom teeth in one single surgery or it must be done one at a time? Dentist advised us to extract all four in one sitting but we doubt if it would be too painful to handle after the surgery.

It will not be painful to extract all wisdom teeth at once. But tissue handling, bleeding and healing of wound may be issue of concern. But it all depens on your wife's general health status.

How to have a healthy teeth.
Limit sugary foods and drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Avoid over-brushing. You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste. Avoid grinding your teeth. Get regular checkups.

Once in every month or two I get ulcers in my mouth I don't know if it's a symptom of some disease or what.

It may be due to deficiency of vitamins and nutrition. Take balanced diet. Eat sprouted beans in breakfast. Take fibrous diet and fruits. For permanent cure take homeopathic medicine.

First of all human beings have three molars on each side of mouth so, the third molar is itself called as wisdom teeth. So if your wisdom or third molar is coming inclined towards adjacent teeth then go for extraction or removal of your wisdom teeth.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Kindly consult a physician & dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person 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. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

You may have cavty. Get an x-ray done to know about the extent of the cavity. If cavity is superficial filling is the option or if its deep and pulp is exposed then you need to go for rct. Pain can also due to any abcess or gingivitis. It is important to get diagnosed to decide the treatment plan. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / 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. . 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. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. HOME BLEACH FOR THE TEETH Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.
