What can be the best toothpaste and toothbrush should be used to cure gum problems.
Kindly get scaling done and use gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Please use any toothpaste having fluoride content but correct brushing technique is more important than the toothpaste and toothbrush.

Central incisor of my upper jaw bent forward. Is there any solution for normal alignment of my teeth?

Dentist, Jammu
Dear, There are many solutions for it - some short term - others long term. It all depends upon your clinical condition and the severity of your central incisor inclination. It will be wiser to give you options on undertaking a clinical examination. So go to the best Dental Surgeon in your area who is known to deliver a good quality dental care. For some of the pics you can even go Ahal Dental Clinic page on the facebook. There are many cases there that may interest you and you can ask your Dental Surgeon to provide with you the same if feasible.

My tooth is going sensitive. & tooths back colour is bad (dirty). What I do improve it?

My tooth is going sensitive. & tooths back colour is bad (dirty). What I do improve it?
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (Sensodyne Tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

Self motivation is the best way. The chewing gums in the market are just to help you with quitting but you need to be strong willed.

Devendra you are having yellow teeth. You need to improve your oral hygiene and digestion. Visit dental surgeon for scaling and polishing. Get bleaching done, drink plenty of water, rinse with listerine mouthwash. Lastly if need be get capping done. Cost is variable depends upon treatment.

I have alot of mouth ulcer for at least 7 to 8 month in a year many doctor has fail to explain reason is their any cure. Basic medicine like bicomplex n all I have taken a lot.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Nutritional deficiency, excessive stress & debilitating disease can cause ulcer. Exercise regularly. Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with Multivitamin cap, for five days in the morning after meals & antiseptic ointment or gel on the area of ulcer until then. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals.

Brushing and flossing twice a day even during the orthodontic treatment is very necessary as food particles easily get stuck into the braces.

Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (Model study, Full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. You may consult me in person.

My age is 26. I cleaned my teeth recently in clinic for the first time and I don't want to clean it every year because it creates teeth gap and damages to the teeth. Can better care avoid me to go to the clinic again?

BDS
Dentist, Zirakpur
Getting teeth cleaned every 6 months is just like you taking a professional care of your face, hair etc. Cleaning dosnt create gaps. Cleaning removes tartar from inbetween the teeth and if you maintain that cleaniness your gum will fill up that triangular gap. -care all you need is two times brushing -interdental cleaning -tongue cleaning -restrict in between meals -decrease the frequency of sugar intake -rinse your mouth everytime you have something even after all this you might be needing a professional cleaning once a year because after you have your meal their is a deposition of a layer on your teeth which is called plaque. That plaque if not removed turns into calculus (tartar) professional cleaning remoces tartar.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need replacement with removable or fixed (bridges & implants) type of teeth. Cost varies with dentist. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Well, best treatment option is to go for laminates/ veneers/ crowns in grossly destructed teeth. A famous tooth creme such as tooth mousse and clinpro have been beneficial too.

The type of treatment you have for toothache 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 is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache 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 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.

Hello, you experiencing tooth fluorosis, go for veneers if you want to have a proper treatment because no other treatment will be satisfactory for such cases. Thank you drjagrati.
