Use Toothpicks for Flossing

Use Toothpicks for Flossing
Toothpicks can be an alternative to use for flossing if dental floss is not available. Remember not to be too harsh while using it.

Hi! can I have diclogem for toothache it paining badly, is it ok to take on high blood pressure.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Lybrate-user please refrain from taking any medication without prescription specially when you are suffering from high blood pressure. Diclogem, which contains diclofenac sodium will surely affect your blood pressure. In case you are unable to reach your dentist please take a over the counter drug like paracetamol (if you are not allergic to it)

For complete oral health, keeping your tongue clean is as important as keeping your teeth clean. Remove tongue plaque and bad breath by using a proper tongue scraper daily.

I am 18 years old boy. My one tooth is half broken and got black. What should I do.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

Chewing tobacco leads to fibrosis of cheek muscle which leads to closure of mouth this is a sign of precancerous lesions.Stop immediately taking tobacco . Braces will not be useful. Special injections to break fibrosis of cheek may be helpful

I had my sister do a ct scan as she has grown an extra teeth in a region far from the last normal set of tooth. The ct scan report shows everything normal but there are 2 possibilities. 1. Dentigenous cyst or 2. Odontogenic kerato cyst. The doctor said operation is required which will need 3 days and full anesthesia has to be done. 1st day admit. 2nd day operation. 3rd day release. Please suggest what should I do?

MDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Both d cysts are common in wisdom tooth region which slowly increases in size simultaneously destroying d adjacent bone. So one has to undergo a surgery to remove them. Depending on the size of the cyst surgery is planned in LA or GA. if surgery is planned in GA u need hospitalization for 3days.

Hi I am 35 years old. I have gap in between front teeth and looking yellowish. What should I do?

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hi, modern day dentistry allows you to fill small gaps between teeth by procedure called dental bonding. If you could send some pictures then we are in better position to comment. For yellow teeth you need to get a professional cleaning done. If that does not help then you may go for teeth whitening.

For sparkling teeth you can sprinkle a little salt on the toothpaste before brushing.
Rubbing of bay leaf once in a week also helps. But keep in mind that it is best to go to the dentist for teeth whitening.

Chewing food from the affected side should be avoided.

Initially I was eating guthka (pan masala. Due to that reason I can not open my mouth properly. I have stopped chewing tobacco from last 4 months. So now what should I do to cure it.

MDS, Certified Implantologist, BDS, Certified Conscious Sedationist
Dentist, Hyderabad
U have stopped eating tobacco that is great it's the first line of treatment. Please take good nutrition and do mouth exercises. Take multi-vitamins. Further a dental appointment is required to personal check n evaluate your condition.

Check how are you breathing from nose or from mouth. Because mouth breathing is one of the common reason for malocclusion, foul smell, breeding from gums. If it exists, break the habit.

Hello. When brushing twice a day and flossing doesn't help improve your yellow teeth, it's time to consider other options. Teeth become yellow due to stains – both deep and surface-level – as well as other causes that sometimes aren't under our control. Although coffee and cigarettes leave stains on your teeth over time, thin tooth enamel also makes teeth look yellow. Tooth enamel is the hard, white surface of your teeth, and underneath it is a pale brown substance called dentin. Thick enamel looks white, but thin enamel allows dentin tones to show through, making teeth look yellow from the outside. Enamel naturally wears thin as people age, but acids from foods and drinks such as sour candies, oranges and soda also thin the enamel by eroding its surface. Saliva neutralizes acid and washes it away, but people suffering from dry mouth miss out on this protective effect. Other causes of yellow teeth include antibiotic use or excessive fluoride intake in young children, which can cause yellow-stained adult teeth later. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development. Certain medication, mouth rinses can also causes yellow staining. Preventing Yellow Teeth: Avoiding smoking, coffee and soda helps prevent yellow teeth, or you can get into the habit of drinking those darker beverages through a straw. Drink milk or plain water after eating or drinking something acidic to help reduce the acid's eroding effect. Brushing and flossing also help, and avoiding snacks between meals allows your saliva to dilute the acids in your mouth too. Using over-the-counter whitening agents will also helps. Discolorations are generally responsive to bleaching procedures.

Hello, Kindly visit your dentist soon and get a dental X-ray done for that particular tooth. Sometimes thick tissues of gums hampers the tooth to come in its position in mouth. Regards

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.

I have mouth ulcer problem. What do I have to do to permanently stop getting infected from mouth ulcer? Please suggest me.

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
Kindly apply orahelp gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Take multivitamins for a month. Also notice that you are not constipated, stressed or having lack of sleep, having acidity problem as these are few of the reasons for ulcers. Avoid hot and spicy food as this may irritate the ulcers. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.
