There are several cause for your problem (nocturnal bruxism) and stress is one of them. Now instead of discussing those complex medical terms like occlusal disharmony, functional disharmony TMJ dysfunction etc. Here is the solution, you meet a dentist and get a night guard fabricated. You must be aware of your other general body problems like diabetes, hypertension, liver or kidney related problems which can contributes to your night grinding habit. Once actual problem is not diagnosed it can only be prevented by night guards. For further details you can connect with us. THANK YOU.

How oil pulling is useful?

How oil pulling is useful?
Oil pulling, a popular folk remedy can be useful for whiter teeth and as a flossing agent. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. It lubricates the gums and provides that extra shine to your teeth.

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

दांत दर्द की वजह कोई भी हो लेकिन ये बेहद कष्टकारी और असहनीय होता है। दांत दर्द की वजह से कई बार सिर दर्द और यहां तक किी चेहरे पर भी सूजन आ जाती है। ऐसे में आप न तो खा सकते हैं न सो सकते हैं। दांत दर्द किसी भी उम्र में हो सकता है और इसकी तीव्रता भी अलग- अलग होती है। दांतों मे कीड़ा लगना, सड़न होना, दाढ़ कुछ फंस जाना, संक्रमण होना, मसूड़ों की बीमारी वगैरह से दांतों में दर्द होता है।

प्रकृति  से दूरी ने बढ़ाई समस्या
पुराने समय में लोग दांत की समस्या से ज्यादा परेशान नहीं रहते थे, जिसकी एक मुख्य वजह थी प्रकृति़ के करीब होना। लोग नीम के दातून से लेकर कई तरह की जड़ी बूटियों का इस्तेमाल करते थे, जो दांतों की सुरक्षा में मददगार रहती था। उनकी जीवन शैली साधारण और खानपान भी शुद्ध और पौष्टिक होता था। आजकल भागदौड़ की जिंदगी, जंक फूड, केमिकल युक्त पेय पदार्थ ये सब आम आदमी के जीवन का हिस्सा बन चुके हैं। ऐसे में जरा सी लापरवाही भारी पड़ सकती है। आजकल छोटे बच्चों में भी दांतों की समस्याएं देखी जा सकती हैं।

कैसे करें देखभाल

  1. कोई भी चीज खाने के बाद तुरंत कुल्ला कर लें। खासकर मीठा खाने के बाद पानी से कुल्ला करके, एक घूंट पी लें।
  2. गरम चीज खाने के तुरंत बाद ठंडा न खाएं, वहीं ठंडे के बाद गरम चीज न खाएं। ऐसा करने से दांत कमजोर होते हैं।
  3. बहुत ज्यादा गरम और बहुत ज्यादा ठंडी चीजें खाने से बचें।
  4. कोल्ड ड्रिंक के बजाय घर के बने पेय पदार्थ पिएं। नींबू पानी दांतो के लिरए बेहतर ड्रिंरक है।
  5. सोने से पहले ब्रश जरूर करें।

दांत दर्द होने पर क्या करें (घरेलू नुस्खे):

1. तेज दांत दर्द में लौंग का तेल रुई के फाहे में लगाकर दांत पर रख लें। तेल न होने पर लौंग भी दबा सकते हैं। माना जाता है कित, लौंग उस हिस्से को सुन्न कर देता है, जिससे दर्द में राहत मिल जाती है। लौंग में बैक्टीरिया नष्ट करने के गुण भी होते हैं।
2. अदरक का टुकड़ा भी दांत दर्द में मददगार होता है। अदरक के टुकड़े को कुचलकर, दांत में दबाकर, मुंह बंद कर लें। धीरे- धीरे अदरक का रस चूसें, आपको कुछ देर में राहत मिल जाएगी।
3. हींग हर किसी के किचन में मौजूद होती है। नींबू के रस में हींग को भिगोकर दर्द वाली जगह लगाएँ, ये दांत दर्द का काफी कारगर इलाज है।
4. कच्चा प्याज दांतों के लि ए काफी फायदेमंद होता है। इसमें बैक्टीर‌यानाशक गुण होते हैं। अगर आप प्याज खाने से परहेज नहीं करते तो इसे सलाद में शामिल करें।
5. दांत में कीड़ा लगने पर प्याज के रस से कुल्ला करें। रोजाना प्याज का टुकड़ा कीड़े वाली जगह पर रखने पर कुछ दिनों में आराम मिल जाएगा।
6. नमक और कालीमिर्च दांत दर्द में बहुत उपयोगी होता है, क्योंकि  इन दोनों में बैक्टीरियारोधी गुण होते हैं। इसके लि ए नमक और कालीमिर्च में पानी मिलाकर पेस्ट बना लें। प्रभावित जगह पर इसका इस्तेमाल करें। आराम मिलने तक इसे लगाते रहें।
7. लहसुन भी दांत दर्द में काफी फायदेमंद होता है। लहसुन को कुचलकर इसमें सफेद या काला नमक मिलाएं। इसमें दर्द वाली जगह पर रखकर मुंह बंद रखें।
8. गुनगुने पानी और नमक के गरारे से भी दांत दर्द में राहत मिलती है। अगर दर्द की वजह से सूजन आ गई है तो उसमें भी ये फायदा पहुंचाएगा।
9. तवे को आग पर रखें और उसमें पानी डालकर फिटकरी डालें। फिटकरी जब पानी सोख ले तो उसे आंच से उतारकर उसको पीस लें। अब इसके चौथाई भाग में हल्दी मिलाएं। इस मिश्रण को दर्द वाले हिस्से या कैविटी पर लगाएं।
10. पिसे हुए सफेद या सेंधा नमक में तेल मिलाकर उंगली से मालिश करने पर भी दांत दर्द में आराम मिलता है। इस पेस्ट को मंजन के रूप में इस्तेमाल करना दांतों के लि ए फायदेमंद होता है।
11. जामुन के पेड़ की छाल को उबालकर, इसके पानी से कुल्ला करने से मसूड़ों की सूजन मे राहत मिलती है।
12. दांतों से खून आ रहा हो तो भी नमक के पानी से कुल्ला करने पर राहत मिल जाती है।
13. तिल का तेल और लौंग का तेल दांत दर्द में राहत दिलाते हैं। तिल के तेल में नमक मिलाकर दांत की मालिश करें, दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।
14. अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में उबालकर कुल्ला करने से भी दांतों को फायदा मिलता है। अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में काफी देर तक उबालें और इस पानी को ठंड कर लें। बिल्कुल ठंडा न करें, गुनगुना होते ही इससे कुल्ला करें। इससे दांतों की टीस में भी आराम मिलता है।

Cleaning teeth will help to remove stains and calculus from teeth. Cleaning will never make teeth white. To make teeth white you should do teeth bleeching it can make teeth white and it stays for 6 months if you maintain it properly. Using veneers or crowns will stay for longer duration visit a endodontist or oral medicine specialist to get opinion.

Irregular brushing technique will certainly cause the gums to bleed. Bleeding may also be due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Deep cleaning, polishing along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel Cause of discoloration Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. The regularly through good oral hygiene practices. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need yellow bacterial film called plaque that occurs naturally in your mouth can build up if not removed filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. You may consult me in person.

Between my rt. Canine tooth and the next tooth there occurred a gap up-to the deep inside my gum and all time I feel an irritating sensation,some time I notice a trace of blood also in my spit.I am consulted that this gap can not be filled and my Dentist prescribing me a medicine of trypsin + chymotripsin repeatedly! Is there any permanent solution?

BDS
Dentist,
It would be to get an x ray done and check for pockets In between the teeth. According to what you have mentioned You might require deep scaling or maybe even a minor gum surgery. Trypsin chymotrypsin may not be the best option.

Dental Implants and its Benefits

Dental Implants and its Benefits

Dentistry has made a lot of progress in the past few decades and continues to do so. However, certain factors, such as injuries, gingivitis, gum disease and decay of tooth can all lead to tooth loss. Previously, bridges and dentures were the only options available, but now a new form of treatment known as ‘dental implants’ have come up. Implants are basically replacements to your broken or damaged teeth and can function just like the way your original teeth did. Implants also provide a strong foundation and have a success rate of around 98 per cent.

The advantages of dental implants are the following:

  1. Implants help you eat easily as they act like your natural teeth. Owing to this, implants score over dentures.
  2. Since implants look like your natural teeth, they can give you back the smile you need and hence you appear confident and feel better about yourself.
  3. Implants are durable and can last a lifetime which makes it advantageous over other dental procedures.
  4. Implants are permanently fused to your bone and help to improve your speech as they are fitted properly to avoid any sort of slip.

Are you suited for a dental implant?
The answer is obviously yes and in fact, anyone suffering from dental concerns can go for dental implant. Being healthy for routine extraction and other oral surgeries deem you eligible and fit for dental implant procedures. However, the minimum necessity is healthy gums if you are considering dental implants. But, it is always advisable to consult your dentist.

Implants require regular visits to your dentist and maintaining proper oral hygiene is a must. If you are a regular smoker or have chronic disorders such as diabetes and heart disease or have had radiation therapy done on your neck or head region previously, then you may have to consult your dentist before zeroing in on dental implants.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.
