While preparing for RCT: Getting to know from a dentist if consuming an antibiotic medicine is advisable, as it can help in reducing the infection and swelling.

Chewing sugarless gum after a meal is a good way to substitute brushing in between meals. It can help remove food particles from between the teeth.

Dear, Main causes of bad breath include: Tobacco: tobacco products cause their own types of mouth odor. Additionally, they increase the chances of gum disease which can also cause bad breath Food: the breakdown of food particles stuck in the teeth can cause odors. Some foods such as onions and garlic can also cause bad breath. Dry mouth: saliva naturally cleans the mouth. If the mouth is naturally dry (for instance, in the morning) or is dry due to a specific disease (such as xerostomia ), odors can build up Dental hygiene: brushing and flossing ensure the removal of small particles of food that can build up and slowly break down, producing odor. Crash diets / Fasting : fasting and low-carbohydrate eating programs can produce halitosis. Drugs/Medicines : certain medications can reduce saliva and, therefore, increase odors. Other drugs can produce odors as they breakdown and release chemicals in the breath. Mouth, nose and throat conditions: sometimes small, bacteria covered stones can form on the tonsils at the back of the throat and produce odor. Diseases: some cancers, liver failure and other metabolic diseases can cause halitosis due to specific mixes of chemicals that they produce. Lifestyle and home remedies for bad breath include: Brush teeth: brush at least twice a day, but preferably after each meal Floss: flossing reduces the build-up of food particles and plaque from between the teeth - brushing only cleans around 60% of the surface of the tooth Clean dentures: anything that goes into your mouth - dentures, bridge, mouth guard - should be cleaned as recommended on a daily basis. Brush tongue: bacteria, food and dead cells commonly build up on the tongue, especially in smokers so brushing the tongue is beneficial for that. Avoid dry mouth: drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and tobacco, both of which dehydrate the mouth. Chewing gum or sucking a sweet (preferably sugar-free) can help stimulate the production of saliva. Diet: avoid onions, garlic and spicy food. Sugary foods are also linked to bad breath. Reduce coffee and alcohol consumption. If all above don't work then it's recommended to go for a good dentist. Let me know if I can help you in any possible way. HAVE A GREAT AND HEALTHY LIFE AHEAD :) Regards, Dr. Shalini Tolani.

My daughter is 10 years old, about few months back I got her rcd done. As per my last visit to our doctor he suggested to redo the rcd for permanent one. We did same. Now few days back my daughter complain of pain. When I check I found the root canal filling was not there & I can see the black spot (bare hollow root. Kindly suggest what to do now. And any other treatment for same.

It seems that your treatment was not over. Absence of root canal filling suggests that final sitting of rct is still pending and this has lead to re infection of root canal space. She requires complete treatment.

Using any toothpaste in a proper manner will not allow any deposits. For polishing you can use whitospark toothpaste by mankind.

Dr. bad breath is long lasting problem after cleaning teeth solve problem. permanently. If it no then how.

General Physician,
Dr. bad breath is long lasting problem after cleaning teeth solve problem. permanently. If it no then how.
Halitosis ( bad breath ) is the third most common reason that people seek dental care (after tooth decay and gum disease). The most common cause of bad breath is poor dental hygiene. As bacteria break down particles of food, sulfur compounds are produced that cause odor.Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone

My teeth are yellow enough tell me some instant therapy which results in my teeth whitening.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

I am 25 year old and having gum bleeding since last 05 years . It bleeds when brush also. Please suggest me treatment. There is black spots also appears since one year

MDS - Periodontics, Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Chandigarh
Hello Thanks for the Query Bleeding Gums are usually because of accumulation of plaque and tartar on tooth surfaces. If It's only Gingivitis than you need to undergo Scaling and root planning(Professional teeth cleaning) If it's phyorrea you need to undergo scaling as well as flap procedure depending upon the condition. For thet same Visit a Periodontist(GumSpecalist) He can help you better in this case. And do change your brushing technique as faulty/wrong technique leads to accumulation of plaque and tartar Thank you Dr.Aman Bhatia

Good morning , it is very important to have a dental check up done and the dental surgeon would after examinations may order some investigations including Xrays - OPG - which would reveal the status of your teeth and their supporting bone. On the basis of same would he be able to help you. It is good that you have suddenly become aware of your handicap - we in the profession will do our best to meet your concerns and rehabilitate you. This has come to pass because of the sheer neglect of your teeth by you. That is why it is recommended to have a 6 month check up from 1 year of age. If we can watch news or read newspapers every day, why we cannot get our general health and dental check up every 6 months!

For how much time bridge replacement for 3 teeth last (the cheaper ones around 1500 per teeth).

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
For how much time bridge replacement for 3 teeth last (the cheaper ones around 1500 per teeth).
Hi lybrate-user How long a bridge lasts depends upon what sort of a bridge it is, and how it is used and maintained. The most frequent cause of bridges failing are 1. Ceramic chipping off the metal coping in case of metal-ceramic bridges. This might happen after several years, but may happen earlier if your diet includes lot of tough, chewy, sticky foods, or, if you have a habit of grinding your teeth. 2. Decay or gum disease affecting the adjacent supporting teeth of the bridge necessitating additional treatment of those teeth, possibly extraction, and replacement of a new bridge, possibly involving more teeth than the original one. This happens usually due to poor home care, failure to maintain regular dental check ups, but the very nature of the bridge also might make it more difficult to keep the area clean, predisposing to food lodgement and damage. Generally, given good home care, regular dental check ups, a bridge should last 10 to 15 years.
