Some strong layer has been gathered on my teeth. What I have to do for removing it?

Some strong layer has been gathered on my teeth. What I have to do for removing it?
Hello. That strong layer is known as calculus. Plaque or food debris that have been accumulated for a long time become that strong layer. You can get that removed by scaling.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - Visit a dentist every six months. 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.

Its advisable to visit your dentist and get a X ray done. The clear picture of permanent teeth which are not erupted yet, can be confirmed only by X ray. Otherwise, 8 or 8.5 years is a common age for upper central or lateral teeth to erupt and it might be delayed with boys, so you need not panic. But you can have an X ray done to rule out any other problem and keep visiting your dentist for follow up after every 1-2 months.

I have problem with bad breath even if go for 2 times brush also please suggest me what I can do to solve this.
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: - practice good oral hygiene. - brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. - don't forget to brush the tongue, too. - replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. - use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. - see your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. - drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. - chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Pain in deep ears. Especially when I eat. Its more when I press my teeth together.

Pain in deep ears. Especially when I eat. Its more when I press my teeth together.
Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, tmj open & closed mouth) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. Advise mouth opening exercise & side to side movement for the jaw muscles or the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and painkillers. For people who grind their teeth or clench their jaw, a bite-appliance may be made which corrects the way in which the jaw works and reduces the stresses and loads on it. This can be disposed of when normal function is restored. As oral & maxillo-facial surgeon, may be required to perform surgery on the tmj.

Black gums are a result of hyperpigmentation that can be done at a clinic and reason for bleeding gums is probaby any deposits around your teeth you need to get that cleaned know as oral prophylaxis.

My tooth has been bleeding every time I brush my teeth and spitting what could be the reason please help me out.

My tooth has been bleeding every time I brush my teeth and spitting what could be the reason please help me out.
Bleeding in gums is definitely due to infection. Along with scaling you need to change your brush type and brushing method i. E. If you are brushing harshly with hard bristle tooth brush it will definitely cause trauma to the inflamed gums. After you finished with your scaling i. E. After 24 hours you can start with warm saline rinses. Warm saline rinses means take warm water and 1 spoon of salt. Follow this type of rinsing at least for 5-7 days almost 5-6 times in a day.

Bleeding is due to gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling is the best option for plaque removal. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash three times a day after each meal. Keep your mouth clean.

Sir, it depends on how big the gap is. Very small gaps can be closed with cement. They may cost at least up to 500. But the cost varies from clinic to clinic and the material they use. But closing the gap may require braces on the teeth for time periods varying from 6 months to one and a half years. And the cost will again depend on the doctor and the type of treatment.

Hello, gap between teeth can be closed by: 1. Orthodontic (braces) is the best and most conservative treatment. 2. Veneers 3. Crowns Yellow teeth could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Hello, you can apply baking soda over it or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will help to heal your ulcers. If they still persist, you need to consult a physician and get your vitamin B levels checked. If required take supplements for it.
