Hi lybrate-user. Sorry to know your suffering sensitive teeth tooth has a layer on the top called enamel which is a protective layer preventing leakage into the layers beneath this. The next layer below this enamel is called dentine, which is a very sensitive layer. So when you say your tooth is sensitive which means that your enamel is probably missing in few areas or thin in few areas exposing the second layer which is a sensitive layer. There are few toothpastes available in the market which combat sensitive teeth. It works for few individuals. However meet your dentist to actually diagnose the problem and then go ahead with treatment. Your dentist might suggest you simple enamel fillings or any other type of treatment which is appropriate depending on the severity of your sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity can also be due to your gums shrinking and making your tooth look longer. Which would need gum treatment to be done. However get your medical records updated and mention to the dentist if you have any gastric regurgitation, which cud be the cause at times. Minimize the intake of carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, squeezing lemon to food, consumption of wine as these are the very few major culprits to dissolve the top layer of the tooth and exposing the second layer thus making your teeth sensitive. Stay away from tobacco related habits which also makes your teeth sensitive try to use soft tooth brushes to prevent unnesasary wearing of the tooth surface. Your dentist would be the right person to customize the plan which suits you the best as every individual is unique. I hope I clarified your query

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.

Hello, you can do warm salt water rinses at home. This will give you relief. You need to visit the dentist for an x-ray of that tooth. If required, you need to go for removal of the wisdom tooth under antibiotic coverage.

If the sensitivity is so severe that you can not eat even after using sensitivity toothpaste, that means the dentinal tubules should be blocked mechanically by a dentist. You need to consult a dentist, after examining the condition of your teeth, the sensitivity problem can be resolved.

Fallen teeth can be treated by replacement of missing tooth with artifical tooth. Teeth problem are of numerious types. Fallen tooth is a gum problem. Gum treatment may help. However only after a xray it can be confirmed.

Hello sir, I m suffering from payriya so what should I do for that and which toothpaste will be suitable for teeth?
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Yes it could be a sign of mouth cancer if the ulcer has not healed for atleast 14 days but the correct diagnosis can be made only by conducting an oral biopsy in this region by a dentist.

Hello, Bleeding from gums and bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

Bleeding gums can be sign of early disease of the gums. You need to get your teeth professionally cleaned to remove any accumulated tartar on your teeth so that your gums can get healthy. After that brushing twice a day with a recommended technique and using a mouthwash regularly should help you maintain your gums in a healthy state.

Dental Tips for Looking Younger

Dental Tips for Looking Younger
Your mouth is more than just a pretty smile. It's also a gateway to your overall health. Keeping that gateway clean may keep you healthier longer -- and looking younger.

Just as white, straight teeth convey youth, a smile with crooked, discolored, worn, or missing teeth is associated with an aged look.

Keeping a youthful mouth comes down to two simple, proven, and practical steps:

Brush and floss daily
See your dentist every six months.
If there is misaligned teeth get it corrected.
If there is gap between teeth can be corrected by orthodontic or cosmetic correction using crown or dental bonding
If there is stain due to tobacco, smoking get scaling done.

Beautiful smile is add on to your personality visit your dentist and get confident smile

I am 60 years old.

If there is pain, there has to be a cause for it. Look out for any decay or any food lodgement in that area. Whenever there is decay in tooth it initially causes sensitivity, but if your decay is deep and extends till the nerves of the tooth then you may feel pain in the tooth. Treatment of superficial decay is filling and deep decay is root canal treatment. Another cause of pain in tooth can be spacing in between two teeth leading to food lodgement which ingresses into your gums and causes pain. You can get this problem treated by having a deep cleaning of your gums and some necessary measure to close the gap depending on hw much of gap you have. please consult your doc and get the problem diagnosed so that you can obtain suitable treatment. For temporary relief you can take some over the counter pain killers which suit you.

Price of Root canal vary from clinic and the doctors who treat, if an Endodontist treats you then prices will be more, if a general dentist treats you prices will be little less, prices also depends on material they use and comfort they provide you.

Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. 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.
