Why Tooth Picking Is Bad for Oral Health
A lot of people love to use tooth picks in order to clear out food stuck in their teeth after meals.Some people even consider to do it as a habit that they will use it, even if they no longer have to. These people do not know that there are possible hazards to using it. In order to convince them to avoid using tooth picks, here are 5 reasons why it is bad for oral health.
It can be a source of oral infections. In fact, it could also be a reason for a person to acquire more severe oral discomforts such as mouth cancer. Keep in mind that tooth picks are never sterile as they are only be stored on tables and closets kept inside their boxes or cases. It would never be ideal to put such thing inside your mouth for health reasons.
Constant tooth picking can break the enamel of your teeth. The enamel which is a hard yet thin layer covering the crown of a tooth is a vital tissue as it serves as the main protection or coat of the tooth. Due to its thinness, it can easily break this tissue given that tooth picks are made up of hard substance. Once the user applies pressure on the tooth, the enamel will easily break off of it. Just imagine all of the damage your teeth enamel has taken so far if you are using it three times a day.
It can be damaging to the gums. Whenever a person is using tooth picks, it is inevitable for them to sometimes hit their gums with it. Worse is when they apply too much pressure and they would accidentally have their gums wounded. If you have wounded or damaged gums, the chances of being able to acquire diseases would be higher most especially if the gums become infected. This is why most dentists advise their patients and clients to use dental flossers instead as they are proven to be more safe

Hi Seshuk, The process of filling the gap between teeth is known as orthodontic treatment, wherein you will be required to wear braces (an appliance with wires) for anywhere between 6 months to 1 year, depending upon the exact condition of your teeth. However, this treatment will serve as a permanent solution to your problem. You teeth alignment will become better and your smile will improve, These days, braces, similar to the color of teeth (ceramic braces) have also become available which are potentially much better looking than the conventional silver appliances. Hope that helps.

Cause has to be checked first. It can b bad occlusion or faulty brushing. Massage gums towards the teeth. That means upper arch gums downwards n lower arch gums upwards. With a gum paint or even wdout it can also b done. Rest guidance can b given on meeting.

Apply topical anesthetic [only at the area of cut] just 10 min before eating to avoid pain during eating & to have good nutrition and maintain oral hygiene. It heals naturally by itself.

Food or drinks acidic in nature should be consumed as little as possible. Consuming them in a large quantity can cause cavities as they soften the tooth material that further leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel.

Nothing to worry on this aspect these stains can b due to a discolouration with coloured foods like tea coffee chocolates colas etc. B due to deposits by chromogenic bacteria present in all mouths. C due to improper cleaning or brushing in all these events a simple scaling polishing by a dentist can solve the problem after that ask your dentist the correct way of brushing he will b glad to give you a demo n than brush twice daily especially at night avoid coloured foods n b happy.

Swelling may cure with antibiotics, but it will recurr, as the source of infection is still there, better consult a dentist, get an x ray done, and do as advised, start doing salt water gargle in mean time, and do not eat anything hot.
