How can I remedy from yellowness of teeth inspite of taking brush twice. It really feels disgusting.

PERIODONTIST, B.D.S.
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
How can I remedy from yellowness of teeth inspite of taking brush twice. It really feels disgusting.
Hello lybrate-user, first thing I want you to ask, is that yellowness of your teeth is by birth? or it is developed with time. Secondly, what is intensity of yellowness? i. E. Mild, moderate or severe it very important to me because according your answer treatment will change. 1) if it is by birth and severe- you have to go for bleaching treatment or for laminate 2) if it is developed with time and not severe- you can go for professional cleaning and then regular maintenance of oral hygiene.

Introduce your child to the sights and sounds of the dental clinic

BDS, Certified Implantologist
Dentist, Delhi
Introduce your child to the sights and sounds of the dental clinic
15. This I personally feel is the most important tip for all parents.

Introduce your child to the sights and sounds of the dental clinic/practice at an early age to allay any dental phobia that might develop. Take them with you when you go for a check up.

Yes it is considered one of the signs of possible cardiac problems. But treatment of what condition. If the myocardial infarction is causing the pain then that treatment (anti-platelet drugs/angioplasty/bypass) will also treat the jaw pain. However without clinically evaluatiing it may be impossible to determine cause.

My 3 teeth have cavity they are half broken half inside, i want to take them off and get new one implanted . is it possible?.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Madam when you say you want a new " tooth " implanted which is called " transplant" I think you are referring to placement of an implant. An implant is just like a screw which would screwed into your jaw bone. So to first place an implant we need good bone support. So if you have good bone support we can place an implant and a crown on top.

I have pain in my tooth tried many medicine but my pain is getting more which medicine should I take.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
I have pain in my tooth
tried many medicine but my pain is getting more which medicine should I take.
The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Dear lybrate-user, whitening toothpaste may cause severe tooth sensitivity if used for a long term. In indian market there are so many brands of toothpaste available. For healthy gum use normally available toothpaste which dnt contain any abrasive material as it may damage enamel. If you have tooth sensitivity use sensitive toothpaste in particular.

For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.

I have gums problem. I have used many toothpaste or oral mouth wash but no relief in moth problems.

MDS Pedodontics
Dentist, Mangalore
I have gums problem. I have used many toothpaste or oral mouth wash but no relief in moth problems.
Gum problems are mainly due to plaque or calculus (deposits on tooth surface). Getting a professional cleaning every 6 months is very beneficial. Consult a dentist to know more about your problem.
