Please tell me which toothpaste is better for our teeth.
For cavities you need to get them filled. This filling could be simple or deep filling might go for root canal treatment. For prevention avoid sugary snd sticky food. Brush twice a day. Any toothpaste can be used to keep our teeth healthy, it should be used with soft bristle brush.

Cavities don't heal on their own. You need to get them treated by either fillers or rct followed by crown coverage. The hypersensitivity will then gradually wane off with proper treatment.

For correction of this big gap you need braces treatment only. You have to visit a orthodontist for that. Don't worry if you are worried about your appearance, then there are various methods by which it doesn't look that bad. - you can select tooth colored braces - you can place braces on inner side so it won't be visible from front.

How to fight with denial problems and the problem of bleeding guys and many more like senstivity?
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Hello Arihaanth, It depends on the xray, the depth of the caries in your teeth. If caries has effected only the enamel,and dentin then you can get your teeth restored.If it involves the pulp then RCT can be done. If enough tooth structure is present then RCT can be done and tooth can be saved. If root stumps are left then you may need them to be removed.

Consult a gastroenterologist and get treated for your stomach problems. In the meanwhile, take care of your oral hygiene by proper brushing and flossing. Consult the dentist if there are deposits present and get them cleaned by scaling because this causes infection of gums.

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. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

A beautiful smile plays a very vital role in enhancing the overall beauty of face. Rotated, stained and mal-placed tooth can cause major aesthetic/cosmetic and psychological problems in teenage and young adults. Mid-line teeth gap, rotated teeth, crowded teeth, stained teeth, broken tooth edges and wearing tooth edges are the most common cosmetic problems that our patients report to us. Dynamic advancements in the field of dentistry has come across with the solution of majority of cosmetic problems.

Here we discuss the various options available for improving smile:

1. Veneers: they are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic glued to the front of your teeth. For teeth that are severely discoloured, chipped or misshapen and gaps between the teeth, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. A veneer is made to match the colour and shape of your tooth. Not everyone is a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Bleaching is not recommended if you have tooth colored fillings, crowns, caps or bonding in your front teeth. There are two types of veneers:

A. Porcelain (indirect) veneers, which must first be created to fit your teeth in a dental laboratory and require two visits to the dentist. Porcelain veneers are generally stronger, while composite veneers are less expensive. With porcelain veneers, the dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to the dental lab for fabrication of the veneer, usually after the front of the tooth has been reduced.

B. Composite (direct) veneers, which are bonded to your tooth enamel in a single visit. With either method, the tooth is prepared for bonding by roughening the front surface with mild etching solution. The veneer can then be bonded to your tooth using a dental bonding cement.

2. Bonding: it uses composite resin to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile. After applying a very mild etching solution that slightly roughens the surface of your teeth and permits the bonding material to adhere, your dentist applies the resin and sculpts, colours and shapes it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light hardens the material, which is then finely polished. Bonding agents are used in treatment of midline gap closures, fractured tooth restoration, wearing teeth edges.

3. Whitening: some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others. Others have teeth that yellow with age. Your natural tooth colour can also be affected by many factors. Surface stains (called extrinsic stains by dentists) and discolouration can be caused by:
A. Tobacco (whether smoked or chewed)
B. Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine
C. Eating highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
D. Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
E. Treatment with the antibiotic tetracycline during the time when teeth are forming
F. Yellowing or greying of the teeth as part of the aging process
G. Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth's nerve, giving the tooth a brown, grey or black colour.

Whitening/bleaching is a simple procedure where whitening agents are applied over the tooth surface in order to chemically change the colour of tooth. It can either be a single visit clinical procedure or multiple application home procedure under the guidance of your dentist.

Will my newly whitened teeth stain?
Any tooth can stain, including the veneers and bonds mentioned above. To help prevent stains from coming back, avoid smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and heavily coloured foods. And brush your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste.
