Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. This will brighten and make your teeth shine. For further whiteness, go for bleaching.

Hi, for mouth ulcers, you can apply kenacort gel 0.1% on the ulcers 4 to 5 times a day. If they are common aphthous ulcers, as it is in most of the cases, they will heal in 4 to 6 days. If you have ulcers lasting more than 15 days or if you have recurring ulcers, you should visit an oral medicine specialist. Regards.

If you have diabetes, make sure you take care of your mouth. People with diabetes are at risk for mouth infections, especially periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease can damage the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place and may lead to painful chewing problems. 

The good news is you can keep your teeth and gums healthy. By controlling your blood glucose, brushing and flossing every day, and visiting a dentist regularly, you can help prevent serious problems in your mouth

My teeth are not white enough. How to make them white without damaging the enamel?

Ask Free Question
Hello, if the problem that you notice is in the basic colour of your teeth then you may opt for bleaching which will lighten the colour of your teeth, but yhe results are not permanent and last sometime between 1 to 2 years. If however the problem is yellow or black deposits on your teeth, then only ultrasonic scaling shall be sufficient to clean your teeth. Do remember that scaling doesnt weaken your teeth whereas bleaching does remove negligible amount of minerals from enamel which is soon reabsorbed from saliva.

Did you know that chewing tobacco, betel nut, paan, smoking cigarettes and consuming excess alcohol can make you a prime candidate for head and neck cancers !
But the good news is head and neck cancers can be cured if they are detected early. If you see any of the following symptoms recurring often, then you need to see your doctor immediately:
• Mouth sore that hasn't healed for 3+ weeks
• Persistent change of voice
• Chewing and swallowing problems
• Lump in the neck
• Bleeding, pain or numbness of mouth or nose
• Pain when opening mouth
• Facial, neck or ear pain

this condition develops due to poor oral hygiene. deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth cause gum infection which becomes aggressive when body defence is low. visit a periodontist for your proper treatment. first of all you need to get your teeth professionally cleaned. you can use antibiotic mouth rinses twice a day. brush twice a day with soft bristle brush. rinse your mouth after every meal.

What is the best time for a dental check for your child?
- The best time for a dental check up for your young child is around the first birthday. Better before the first. Birthday.

Like it is important for a child to be examined by a Child specialist soon after birth in the same way it is very important for the child to be examined by a Child Dental specialist as soon as first milk teeth erupt into the mouth. The Child Dental Specialist can examine and guide you on many aspects to avoid the dreaded tooth decay for your loving child.

The best and Ideal time to come to a Child Dental Specialist is as the mother is carrying the child preferably in the first three months. The mothers or parents can be guided to take care of small aspects which will not only benefit them but, also the little one as they come into this wonderful world.
