Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily to maintain your oral hygiene.

Take homoeopathic medicine Merc Sol 30 1-2 doses at the interval of 1 hour. See if it helps. Ideally it is more productive if the medicine is prescribed considering the detailed case study.

helo all,Avoid excess citrus items like lime water,oranges,mosambi,pickles as it causes dissolution of enamel/outer covering of natural tooth.

My tongue is little bit larger. I can not talk well. Please give me some suggestions to become smaller.

Do you have any other medical. Or hormonal disorder. If not it could be that your teeth are not placed properly. Or arch is narrow. In that case space for the tongue seems less. It is actually an orthodontic problem. See an orthodontist. You may require braces.

Temporomandibular joint problems can result from several tooth damage and improper tooth relationships. The dentist needs to evaluate if your bite is affected which may cause joint problems.

Hi, please ask your dentist to take an x-ray and check for infection in the root of the offending tooth. If the dental cavity is very deep, it usually infects the roots also. In that case you may need a root canal treatment. Please revisit your dentist or take a second opinion from an endodontist (dentist specializing in rct procedure). All the best.

Dazzling Smile with Perfectly White Teeth

Dazzling Smile with Perfectly White Teeth

We all look at pictures of our favorite celebrities and long to have that perfect while smile showing off well-aligned teeth. However, due to various reasons, our teeth do not seem to be like theirs. Some of the reasons for the not-so-white teeth include:

  1. Food habits like excessive cola, coffee, tea
  2. Tobacco chewing and smoking
  3. Fluoride deposits seen in people in which the community water has excessive fluoride content
  4. Ageing
  5. Side effect of medications like tetracyclines.

However, with teeth achieving major cosmetic value, a lot of developments have happened and now a set of white pearls need not just be a dream. Whether it is just one tooth which is oddly colored or the entire set has taken on a darker shade, teeth whitening procedure comes to the rescue. It is well within the reach of most people, with options that can be managed both in the office and at the convenience of your homes.

Whatever the technique, the basic chemical is the same, hydrogen peroxide, which is a well-known bleaching agent. This works very well on extrinsic stains and may take repeated visits to the dentist to whiten teeth with intrinsic stains like fluorosis.

Things to remember:

Before going ahead with teeth whitening, the dentist will inform you that:

  1. Cavities need to be treated before teeth can be whitened
  2. Receded gums need to be treated before teeth whitening
  3. Any crown work that is pending should be done before the teeth whitening can be done.

Once all the above mentioned things have been take care of, the next step is to clean the teeth completely. This cleaning will ensure that your teeth are free of bacteria and other deposits. The patient's impressions are then taken to make customized trays.

The dentist will provide you with a kit, which contains the trays and the bleaching material. The material should be applied on to the trays, left in place in the mouth to produce the bleaching effect. This may need to be repeated for about 2 to 3 weeks.

Types:

Whitening can be done on vital teeth or on non-vital teeth-

  1. Vital teeth are usually bleached in the clinic, where the bleaching agent is applied on the tooth. It is then activated by a laser light to produce the active chemical that whitens the teeth. If the staining is excessive, then in-house vital tooth whitening may be followed by a couple of home applications.
  2. Non-vital teeth: Teeth which are root canal treated turn brown over a period of time. Whitening these root canal treated teeth is known as non-vital tooth whitening.

So, if you are not happy with your set of teeth, there is always a solution – get them whitened and see your smile broaden.
