Make sure your mother is eating juicy fresh food and chewing each morsel throughly. If she is eating dry, stale, oily and spicy good. And swallows food in hurry. Then it will cause such problems.

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. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

If you have ruled out the option of going for orthodontic treatment (braces), you can surely close the gap betwen your teeth using veneers or crowns depending on the severity of the gap and size of the adjacent teeth. A gap of 1cm should be a difficult proposition to close but cosmetic treatment is surely possible.

Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent toothpaste 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. 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.

I have yellow spot in my teeth, from my childhood , may be due to fluorosis.
What should I do .
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.

Periodontitis, bad mouth smell even teeth and gum line. Once these pockets form they can trap food particles that will feed bacteria that is also trapped in them. These pockets can go so deep that they can begin to erode the supporting bone structure and lead to tooth loss.

Nicles you are having cavities . having blood in mouth in morning shows poor oral hygiene . The best way to get rid cavities is filling of cavities regular rinse with Mouthwashes (listerine )after meals . you have to visit dental surgeon ,for filling .and ensure your teeth stay healthy.

I'm suffering from gum bleeding. My teeth are so week. Please suggest what kind of medicine can I take.
You need not take any medication, check if there are any deposits on your teeth which can be yellow or brown. If yes then that is the reason causing bleeding, as the deposits sit on your gums, there is more of microbial action causing inflammmation of gums causing redness and swelling of gums. This affects your tooth support also hampers the teeth. Also improper brushing can cause bleeding. So I request you to check with your dentist asap.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to visit a dentist for every six months and get the check up done so that you can know the problem at the earliest. Avoiding soft drinks completely is much better. Atleast avoid taking any food especially carbohydrates one hour before and after having a soft drink as the acidic content in it will cause demineralization of your teeth.

What to do to reduce the mouth odour? What measures should be taken to overcome it?

BDS

What to do to reduce the mouth odour? What measures should be taken to overcome it?
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.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.
