Getting your teeth cleaned may give you more than a sparkling white smile -- it may give you something to smile about, like your health.

In a large study, people who had their teeth professionally scaled at least once every two years were 24% less likely to have a heart attack, compared with those who skipped the hygienist. Scaling cleans between the gums and the teeth.

And their risk of stroke dropped by 13%, says study researcher zu-yin chen, md, a cardiology fellow at the veterans general hospital in Taipei, Taiwan.

Generalised paining of teeth is due to gums. This might be the intial stages of gums. Once go to the dentist and get cleaning the teeth and ask the dentist for massaging paste for gums.

You should visit md physician. Consult good doctor. 6 months is abnormal thing. Mri helps in diagnosis of soft tissue but it should be referred and diagnosed by doctor. As a dentist I can suggest you to visit a good dentist because tooth ache can be from jaw to ear to head known as a reffered pain. This pain can be so severe that it can wake you up in middle of night also. So better to visit a dentist also. Take care. Wish you healthy life ahead.

Dear lybrate-user your problem is discoloration or yellow tinge on teeth and you want to make it white and you have tried many ingredients also ---no relief you can use --take a cut lemon piece soak with soda bi carbonate and rub on teeth for two minutes and than wash properly, do this once in a week. Visit a dental surgeon for checkup and see if bleaching can solve your problem use colgate whitening paste and do regular mouthwash to maintain oral health.

A diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals, fresh fruit and vegetables can help to prevent gum disease.

He s complaining every day more salt in food eventhough its, normal. Sometimes he complains about salt taste in tongue. Any suggestions to cure this.

•A change in taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

Dentist,
Sugary foods should be consumed in limited quantities as the bacteria in dental plaque changes them into acids.

I hope you don't blindly take medications before having a proper consultation with a dentist. It seems to be like an infection with origin from that decayed tooth. Antibiotics and pain killers will only be a temporary relief. You will have to go for the appropriate treatment. Share pics/xray for a detailed report.

Hi doctor. One year back i have clip on my teeth.Its removed one year back.Now my teeth have little bit gaps n my teeth is little bit loose.Tel me any advice to solve this problem .

MDS, BDS

I agree with Dr. Darshan. I want to add on it I think you might have developed periodontitis (infection of gums and jaw bone). Xray will reveal the exact problem. And don't delay it by using various toothpastes available in the market

I have problem of foul Smell. My dental care is good. Foul Smell is there even just after brushing. I have consulted dentist, Gastrologist, Physician but no resolution. I have also gone for KFT, stomach ultrasound with no anomaly. I am not able to understand the reason. This problem is there every time and is very frustrating for me. It has reduced my ability to speak and discuss.

Hello lybrate-user, yes it can be due to dryness of mouth. First do not take too much of stress because due to stress also your mouth will get dry. To solve this problem- drink lots of water you can use chewing gum also.

Hello Doctor, I have additional half teeth attached with a teeth and that half teeth has cavities. So is there any treatment for that or I have to consult dentist to remove that teeth?

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Usually we do not advise fillings or other restorative treatment for extra (supernumerary) teeth, unless they are going to serve some useful purpose in the overall dental rehabilitation of the patient. So, the usual advise would be extraction, but, the actual plan would only be suggested after a clinical evaluation by your dentist.

Hi thanks for the query if your teeth are damaged up to the extent of crown (visible tooth surface in oral cavity. Than you better go. For extraction. If still. 40% of the tooth structure above gums is visible and firm go for rct and than post and core and crown. If you have xrau of that tooth please share for better diagnosis thank you
