Tooth staining is due to oil and turmeric content of food. You cant avoid it but you can minimize it by regular rinsing after meals. Also you can start a mouthwash and an effective toothpaste for faster results.

FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or 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. FOR YELLOW TEETH: Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling 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.

Extra teeth r generally accompanied by crowding of teeth n causes difficulty in brushing teeth n maintaining gud oral hygiene. If your not facing probs associated with multiple extra teeth such as crowding of teeth, reduced tongue space, traumatic occlusion etc. You may retain them provided you maintain good teeth n gums health. Check with your dentist if your facing such probs. If yes, get dem removed fr preventing probs with your other permanent teeth. P. S. - people tend to confuse retained milk tooth with extra tooth. Check wid your dentist.

Like our body, our gums also need some exercise to maintain their health.Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

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.

Hi, if you have any habit of smoking or tobacco chewing, quit it. Then just get your teeth cleaned by your dentist. If required, bleaching can be done to increase the whiteness. Regards Dr. Mukesh k asrani.

Bleeding gums is the sign of gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling will help you in this regard. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth after eating anything.
