Please take pain killer and then visit to a dentist for proper treatment because your teeth would be affected with deep caries.

Dentist, Ghaziabad
Speak slowly. Hold a clove or elaichi in it mouth initially and suckle on a toffee slowly you will be trained to limit is saliva. Also show a dentist to correct the underlying cause of access saliva.

Or there is alternate way to remove yellow stains from tooth?
when you talk about yellow stains they are actually the tartar/deposit on teeth.. they need to be cleaned and polished by dentist.. teeth bleaching is an advance process where in we change the shade of tooth.. to white...the natural yellow colour that you see is the layer below enamel that is white portion of tooth .. called dentin..bleaching causes little sensitivity for one or two days and later it goes away..but in many cases it never caused any sensitivity either..just use a good bleaching material..for teeth..

Dear sir! my all teeth are yellow so I want to whiten them please tell me what should I do?
There are two reasons for teeth yellow; the extrinsic stains of food, plaque and calculus or intrinsic like fluorosis. Extrinsic stains would go away with Scaling and polishing and for intrinsic tooth bleach, Veneers or Crowns would be of great help. Visit a specialist dentist and get proper treatment after diagnosis.

Apply candid mouth paint 3- 4 times daily. Visit an oral medicine specialist (MDS) for proper diagnosis of your problem. It can be due to some underlying diseases you are not aware of. Please do not delay now.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Steps for keeping your teeth healthy forever.

Doctor, I'm having black spots on my tongue N sharp pain when eating pepper or spicy food. Sometimes I don't find sweet things sweet, so I've to double up the sugar in tea. Is it side effect of digene gel? As I've been taking it for my acid reflux. What shall I do?

Acid reflux itself can cause burning of mouth.in fever also some time patients have burning mouth and burning tongue there can be many reasons for burning tongue like vitamin deficiency. Avoid spicy food. And in most of cases burning goes away by its own in 7-10 days. If possible share pictures of tongue.

I have tmj disorder problem said by my dentist. So as a first treatment they give me a dental splint to wear 24 /7. How can I chew my foods with wearing this splint? And what can I additionally do for myself with this splint therapy for curing my tmj disorder problem quickly? Please help me. Thanks for your help.

Splints are designed to fit over the teeth. They prevent the upper and lower teeth from coming together. This makes it difficult for you to grind or clench your teeth. These devices take pressure off the jaw joints and muscles so they can relax and heal. If your dentist thinks a splint would help you, and told to wear it 24/7 you need to wear them everytime .in begining you may face difficulties in eating while your splints in but as time passes you will get used to it. The splint isn't as sharp as the molars and doesn't break food down quite as well. Avoid chewing much to break the food down. Pretty avoid "flat" foods or foods with "skins" flat foods, like lettuce and spinach. They are hard to break down .If a splint causes or increases your pain, stop using it and contact your doctor.

N Daruwalla.
Dear Lybrate user, apple cider vinegar is know to be used a s a mild mouthrinse but it does not cause teeth whitening with single use. MOREOVER, IT IS VERY ACIDIC IN NATURE SO IT SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT IN CONTACT WITH THE TEETH WITHOUT DILUTING. High acidic nature can lead to enamel damage and erosion. Use a very gentle/soft toothbrush for brushing after waiting for 30 minutes. You can dilute one part apple cider with 2-3 parts water and rinse your mouth with it. Be careful as to not to follow it as a long term daily routine. If you are not satisfied with the natural color of your teeth, better to go for proper treatment options like bleaching or whitening rather than using a product whose use and benefits for teeth are not documented properly. Otherwise, it's very good for your body health.

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

You re Never Too Old for Orthodontic Treatment

You re Never Too Old for Orthodontic Treatment
  • It may come as a surprise that some 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. But it really shouldn't! When you consider the social and professional advantages of investing in your smile, the benefits are clear. Plus, with the less-noticeable orthodontic appliances that are available today, many people are able to receive this treatment in a more discreet manner.
  • Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. But as an adult, you'll have more choice in the way this is accomplished. For example, if it's appropriate in your situation, you could opt for clear braces instead of traditional metal appliances. You may even be able to get the results you want using lingual braces, which attach to the tongue side of your teeth, or clear orthodontic aligners, which are transparent and removable. Both of these appliances offer a method of treatment that's virtually invisible.
  • There are a number of different orthodontic appliances that can be effective in different situations. Which type of treatment is right for you? Let your dentist help you find the best way to get the smile you've always wanted — it's never too late!

Saving your Child's Teeth Series 2:
Tip of the day:
Start your child to brush with the help of finger brushes without any toothpaste at 9 to 10 months of age, playfully while giving him/her a bath. This way the child gets used to an idea of a brush and does not shy away from brushing later on.
Toothpaste to be initiated after 1 year of age - we have special toothpastes for kids available - preferably non -foaming types to be used.
At 1 year of age to 1 year 6 months - 1/4 th the pea size toothpaste to be applied into the bristles of the brush.
upto 2 yrs - 1/2 pea size toothpaste to be applied.

Never wet the brush before brusing - the paste becomes foamy and that irritates and gags the child resulting in the child developing phobia or aversion to toothbrushing - resulting in enhanced decay of teeth later on at 3 yrs and adolescence!
