I did scaling 2 months before and have been using hex mouthwash since then (I used it for the first 15 days and then using it after a month. I could see that that tartar buildup has started a little as my lower four teeth are crowned. What should I do?

Mouth wash are an adjunctive to our daily cleaning chores - brushing, flossing etc. Be sure to Always rinse after eating and follow the rule of brushing twice a day. The soft deposit mostly get cleaned by brushing, if the deposit is hard you may then need professional cleaning. If your deposit is only occuring on your bridge then there are chances that you have food lodgement in that area. If your bridge is not faulty then make sure that your cleansing routine is thorough. Always use a floss in Bwn your bridge and adjacent natural tooth. Super floss in the area under your bridge if you have spacing and food lodgement there. U may need guidance of your doc initially to learn how to floss and super floss. Do visit your doc once in 6 months for professional cleaning. If you are sure that your cleaning regimen is fine then consult your doc to check fr faulty bridge.

How to bring maxilla forward in adults if one is 21 years old. Can it be done with braces too ? Or something else.

How to bring maxilla forward in adults if one is 21 years old. Can it be done with braces too ? Or something else.
Hello lybrate user, bringing the maxilla forward will be possible with a combination procedure of braces assited with surgery, which is corrective jaw surgery also known as orthognathic surgery. Alternative treatment options will be camouflage orthodontics where the mandibular teeth will be moved to a further backward position to mask the already backward placed maxilla. The whole treatment depends on how much the maxilla is placed back and to what extent. For further details you need to visit an orthodontist.

How to keep my teeth sparkling white.
Could you please prescribe some home remedies.
hello if you are using power form or ayurvedic to clean your teeth. your teeth become more yellowish with time because powder is more abrasive it will wear outermost layer of tooth enamel. and tooth become more yellowish due to exposure of inner layer dentin which is more yellowish. So avoid vigorous brushing. bleaching can be done. Which can improve your tooth shade

Looking after your teeth helps keep your mouth in optimum condition. Ways to maintain good oral health include: • Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. • Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day inter dentally • Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. • 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 • Check your mouth regularly for any unusual sores and lesions • Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and have regular thorough dental check-ups where your dentist will look at • the health of both your teeth and your mouth Most importantly, do not delay seeking immediate advice from a dentist or medical professional if you notice any unusual symptoms or sores on your lips or in your mouth.

Is it More Important to Brush Your Teeth in the Night Than in the Morning?

Why it's more important to brush your teeth in the night than in the morning

Most people wake up every morning and stumble to wash their teeth first thing. Do you believe that brushing your teeth in the morning is sufficient to keep your mouth healthy?

While it is important to brush your teeth in the morning for good oral hygiene, what goes on in your mouth all night is even more important. Brushing your teeth once a day is barely enough to maintain perfect oral hygiene. By brushing twice a day you can make the difference.

Do you know why it can be important to brush at night since you are only about to sleep?

Here are a few things that brushing before bed does.

1. Reduces acid build up

Everyone has acid being constantly produced in their mouths. The saliva secreted contains calcium which neutralizes the acid being built up. At night the saliva secretion slows down which allows the acids to get accumulated. The acids keep corroding the teeth all night. When you brush your teeth, the fluoride present in the toothpaste stimulates saliva secretion. So by brushing before bed you ensure that the saliva secretion does not fall drastically. In the process you prevent your teeth from getting corroded.

2. Reduces bacterial multiplication

The saliva in our mouth not only neutralizes the acid it reduces bacteria from multiplying as well. During the reduced saliva production, as you sleep, the bacteria in your mouth multiply manifold and attack your teeth and gums. This is why keeping your saliva secretion regular by brushing before bed is of utmost importance.

3. Reduces the decay of food particles

After you have your dinner just rinsing your mouth is not enough. Tiny food particles that get stuck in your teeth rot overnight. It is best to go to bed with a clean mouth rather than a mouth with tiny decaying food particles.

No matter how much of a task it might seem like, brushing at night is as important, if not more important, than brushing in the morning.

'consult'.

First please visit dentist and understand which tooth is panning and what is the cause; erupting tooth or cavity. Also, take an Xray to rule out Fracture of tooth. You can send me the xray to help you better. Meanwhile, you can take a painkiller. Generic name: ibuprofen or diclofenac sodium.
