Make sure you clean your tongue while brushing teeth ,remove all the mucous, consume water frequently at least once in 2 hours ,include fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet, brush twice a day, avoid junk foods, rinse with water every time after eating food, rinse with warm salt water 3-4 times a day, you will see the change :) have a regular check up with near by dentist atleast once in 6 months and get cleaning done when ever it is necessary.

Hi doctor's, I am very worried about ulcers in my mouth. It's very frequent for me. Don't know what to do. Can't even eat food and sometimes can't even speak also. It's very painful. please advise.

Dear lybrate-user. Its a complex interplay of stress, immunity & viruses (sometimes). There are no great therapies which could permanently cure. However a thorough assessment of health with physical examination by your doctor to rule out things like vit B deficiency, Vit D deficiency, your immune status, Oral hygiene status etc. May help in solving your problem. Take care.

Sir, medication will not solve or cure the problem which is causing pain. Pain means an infection may have spread deep inside the tooth, to the inner layers. It could be decay, which is the most common cause for the pain. Please visit a dentist to get a permanent solution for the pain.

There are few methods to fill the gap between teeth, one is dental bonding and another is porcelain veeners, which is very much effective, you should consult with a dental surgeon for this purpose.

There are many ways to whiten your teeth. At first you can try home remedies then over the counter products and then if you are not satisfied with that then professional bleaching in dental office is a definitive solution for your problem. Before everything you should borne in mind that you should brush your teeth two times daily. Always use soft bristled brush and be gentle on your teeth and gums while brushing. Learn proper brushing technique. This will help you to clean your teeth efficiently and effectively. As a home remedy you can apply baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) paste by adding some water to it. Apply this paste on teeth and brush your teeth. Do it once or twice a week. You can also use snowdent whitening toothpaste for 2- 3 months to see the results. If it doesn't help you then you can discuss professional bleaching of teeth with your dentist.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Hello lybrate-user, repeated swelling in wisdom tooth region can signify pus collection or simply indicate gum swelling. Pain is not a reliable symptom to decide the absence of infection. My advice is to get a radiograph done to check the bone around the tooth. If the bone appears normal, we have look for any sharp points in the opposing tooth. Otherwise the tooth needs to be extracted even if there is no pain.

Ulcers generally take 1-2 weeks to heal completely. Recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures n cheek bites. It can also b due to general nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stressful lifestyle etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs which includes vit c n iron supplements if your hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous n citrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.

Since teeth cleaning is as important for children as for adults, they should use a toothbrush which has a small round head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

The toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1.Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums The most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (RCT). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an RCT. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. I suggest that that you consult me privately on Lybrate, so that I can provide more specific answers. You will be able to send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

Usually dentists give plain water to wash your mouth to rinse after drilling cavities. But my dentist gives me green or blue coloured water to rinse. Can you tell me what is that blue or green coloured water and why is that used instead of plain water.

Dear Lybrate user, Mouthrinses are used in dentistry for a number of reasons: to freshen breath, to prevent or control tooth decay, to reduce plaque formation on teeth and gums, to prevent or reduce gingivitis, or to deliver a combination of these effects. It is quite common for your dentist to give you blue or green colored water to rinse your mouth before the treatment procedure is started. A pre-procedural mouthwash serves an important function in infection control as numerous studies have demonstrated that mouthrinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash can greatly reduce the number of viable microorganisms in the dental office which are usually spread during drilling cavities and scaling with ultrasonic scalars.

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?
Hi lybrate-user. Yellowish teeth with black spots can be because of two reasons. Because I hav not seen your case clinically, I will tell you treatment for both. 1. First it may be because of deposits and stains on your teeth. Treatment for this is scaling. Very normal procedure for cleaning your teeth and gums. 2. Second, you might be suffering from dental fluorosis. For this you need to visit a good dentist and get the treatment procedure to get a beautiful white smile. Thank you.
