Is it true that brush should be used only once a day. The other time, we should clean our teeth with our fingers as using brush twice a day to clean one's teeth can spoil our teeth?

it's a myth. you should brush twice daily with the ultra soft bristle brush. your finger will not be able to reach the area between your teeth. do food will accumulate there leading to decay n gum infection.

Dear Lybrate user, your vitamin B-12 levels are absolutely normal. Recurrent mouth ulcers can also be due to stress, dehydration, smoking, excess alcohol consumption or some underlying medical condition. Get your blood sugar also checked once. Keep yourself hydrated by consuming plenty of water and fluids. You may also consult a general physician for further queries.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I extracted my tooth a couple of days back. The dentist primarily went for a root canal treatment a week ago and found it not worthwhile and extracted my tooth. During those 5 days I have been taking antibiotic tablets. Is it necessary to have more after extraction.

Hi. No it is not necessary to continue with your antibiotics. If you experience any pain you can just take the painkiller but nothing more.

Its not hazardous only it depends on the thickness of ur supporting were you get your implant placed and your health condition should be better with no history of diabetes and bone disorders. After placement of implant again it depend s on you how you maintain the area. Or else you will get perimplantitis and your implant will go into failure.

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: Brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.

Bleeding is the indication of gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Get scaling done. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily.

Some types of medication can also cause bad breath. Medications associated with bad breath include: nitrates – which are sometimes used to treat angina (chest pain caused by a restriction in the blood supply to the heart) some chemotherapy medication tranquilisers (phenothiazines) If the medication you're taking is causing bad breath, your General Physician may be able to recommend an alternative.

The most popular and latest method of having fixed teeth without having to touch the adjacent natural teeth is using good quality dental titanium implants.
These pictures show old crown and bridges failing and their replacement with titanium dental implants which not only restore better chewing function but also better aesthetics.

Bleeding gums.
Have tried all sort of tooth pastes and power but ineffective. Advice.
Hello lybrate-user, gum bleeding is due to gum infection which develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth. You need to have professional cleaning of your teeth by a dentist. This will help in removal of these layers. Further the infection will subside and gum bleeding will also stop within a week. No tooth pastes or powder has any relationship with this problem. You just have to maintain a good oral hygiene. I suggest you to visit a dentist soon and start using soft bristle brush for a month or two.

Hi! My daughter is 12 and she asks for braces for correcting her teeth line, which I agree to. What age is apt for getting this done? Need to know the basic difference between retainers and braces. Thanx a lot in advance!

MDS - Orthodontics

Ask Free Question
Yes good question. Orthodontic treatment starts from 9 years were we do any growth modulations procedures and between 12 to 13 year is write time because all permaments teeths will be in oral cavity. Retainers are only given after completion of the treatment to retain the corrections achieved following the course of treatment. And braces are brackets which we put during treatment.

How to protect my teeth.?

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Limit sugary foods and drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Eat foods that protect enamel. Calcium in food counters acids in your mouth that cause decay. Avoid over-brushing. You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard. Use fluoride. Avoid grinding your teeth. Get regular checkups.
