I have pain in my teeth. If I eat anything cold item lile ice cream or drink cold water it is very painful. I concern with dentist he said I am suffering with sensitivity. Please refer the medicine or treatment of this. I am from Chandigarh.

Dentist, Kolar
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelF or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto ur tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get ur teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of ur problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.

I am suffering from tongue problem which has a small cut from previous morning. Please advise.

Dentist, Lucknow
Avoid hot spicy or even salty food in tongue cut. Apply honey or turmeric mixed in honey as home remedy. U can also get any antiseptic anesthetic gel for oral ulcers to be applied on tongue. It will heal by itself in a wk.

I am having trouble with my teeth they are becoming yellowish is there any solution for this.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Everyday I will brush my teeth but it will turn into yellow I Do not understand why and I had an habit of smoking because of this will there be any effect to teeth.

Dentist, Delhi
Only brushing can not save you. You will have to go for scaling by a dentist and get your stains removed. If after that stains still remain, you can go for bleaching.

One of my braces came off. It's the only metal that is supporting it. Is it okay if I wait for a month to fix it because I've my exams going on right now and it'd finish only after a month?

Dentist, Gurgaon
Better to visit dentist and just get it fixed. It would hardly take 15 minutes for the dentist to fix the braces.

I'm suffering from toothache from last two days when any cold water drunk. Can you suggest any precautions & food habits to avoid it?

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Delhi
The toothache from cold water may be an indication of cavity in your teeth. Please get a consultation from nearby dentist to get relieved of the problem. No precautions as such but may stop taking cold things, but thats not a solution, its just a way to avoid discomfort.

Way to fight bad breath
1. Brush teeth twice a day.
2. Floss daily.
3. Brush or scrape your tongue.
4. Use a mouth rinse- mix of water and few drops of peppermint oil or rinse your mouth with black or green tea.
5. Visit your dentist regularly.
6. Quit smoking and avoid tobacco products.
7. Be sure to drink a sufficient amount of water.

One of my tooth has become sensitive due to which I can't chew on right side. Second tooth with cap after root canal treatment(before @ 7 years) is also paining. Please advise.

Hi doctors This issue whit my teeth. My teeth giving bleeding when I use to do brush. It's problem of everyday hope help.

Dental Clinic
Dentist, Gurgaon
Plaque on your teeth and at the gumline that is not removed by brushing and flossing can infect the gums and lead to the symptoms of gingivitis. When gingivitis occurs, your gums may become swollen, tender and sometimes bleed during brushing. This early stage of the disease responds well to good brushing and flossing habits and regular dental checkups. Switching from a soft-bristled toothbrush to a firm brush may also result in gums that bleed. Try returning to a soft or medium-bristled brush and talk to your dentist about what toothbrush is right for you at your next appointment.

Brush twice daily.

Special emphasis should be on before going to bed brushing.

flossing is also an important part of oral hygiene.

Gagging reflex is common protective reflex which v all have, but in some its little exaggerated n exis of every thing is bad, normally it's because of anxiety, hurry, poor oral hygeine, quoted tongue if you control this may b gagging will b less, some local med also can reduce but will have side effects hence if you can train you r self would b a better answer.
