I am 71 years old male having only 4 lower natural teeth and wearing a denture for the remaining ones. Often, when I wake up in the morning or in the middle of the night, I find some spit on one side of my lips or on the pillow. Is there any remedy to avoid such occurence?

Hello, Uncle its normal. It's because once you loose your natural teeth your vertical height of mouth and hence saliva drools out just like in small baby with no teeth. Don't worry! if it troubles you a lot then you can consult me for fixed teeth.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Hi. There are several reasons for the presence of gap between teeth. Eg: bone loss around teeth, frenum pull, an extra tooth present inside bone or could be because of deficient tooth material. First the problem needs to be evaluated n removed n den either you can get it closed by orthodoontic treatment ie braces or by build up.

Hello, Visit a dentist and get it checked. Gap in between teeth can be closed by 1. Orthodontic treatment 2. Composite or ceramic veneers. 3. Crowns. Scaling is not harmful. It is not an invasive procedure, it just removes the deposits in between teeth, blackish rocky substance is called tartar which can also be taken care with scaling and polishing. So get it done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

My teeth are not in same shape. What is the cost of reshaping the front facing teeth. And is there any side effect or disadvantage of the reshaping.

Hello Lybrate user, by reshaping im guessing you are asking about veneers and laminates. The laminates or veneers are usually placed in upper teeth from right canine to the left one, that means 6 units of veneers. Each veneer will cost you around 4 to 6k. There is no disadvantage as such but for few days you will have a liitle sensitivity which will subside by applying some sensitive tooth paste.

Dear lybrate user, the reason for extra growth of gums can be history of any trauma to gums or poor oral hygiene. If you want to take proper treatment for that, first you have to go for oral cleaning or prophylaxis. If it is not reducing you have to go for excision i. E. Removal by cutting it from base.

Hi, gum bleeding is a sign of gum disease which is caused most commonly by deposition of calculus on teeth. Rather than trying for home remedies, get a dental checkup done so that gum bleeding can be cured permanently. Regards.

Go for professional scaling and polishing. This only will solve your problem permanently. Temporary relief can be achieved with a use of mouthwash.
