Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ?eaten? right down to the gum.

Take a xray visit the dentist, at times permanent teeth start erupting before the milk tooth shed, therefore if the milk tooth needs to be removed then the dentist will remove, if not if it is small and get off on its own then no need to remove.

It is necessary to do 2 times brush in a day or which paste should we apply.?

It is necessary to do 2 times brush in a day or which paste should we apply.?
Yes, brushing in the morning and after dinner is necessary to keep the surface of the teeth clean and reduce plaque/tartar formation. The paste is not really as important as how you brush. Do not brush in a horizontal direction- always brush away from the gums. And clean every surface of each tooth.

My hard palate got burned when I'm having hot food. Please suggest me what can I eat ?during this.

Bad breath can b caused fue to various reasons. Due to smoking n using tobacco products, dental prob such as decay teeth, unclean tongue, gum infections, reduced saliva n dry mouth, ill fitting dentues, salivary gland probs. Other diseases n infections which also cause bad breath r sinus infections, respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis n pneumonia, liver n kidney probs, diabetes, acid reflux from stomach etc. Get scalling done by dentist. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Get your decay teeth filled. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs. Drink plenty of fluids n lime juice. Inspite of these measures if bad breath persists, consult a general physician for further evaluation.
