I have black gums and I want pink gums please give me suggestions.
Pink gums quit habits if any. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. Advance procedures (for pink gums) can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Goggle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue Gargle. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

Usually mouth ulcer in old age will come due to lack of nutrients particularly vitamins, either in the diet or her body is not able to take from the food. Or due to stress or lack of sleep. Keep her happy ultimately she will have good sleep and reduced stress, ask her to eat properly so that she get all the nutrients. If not improving consult a physician, ulcer may be due to gastric problem.

Hello sir I have a problem in my mouth. It is smelling all the time. Please do me a favour.
Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then

Hello lybrate-user, see there is just a myth that teeth becomes pearly white, teeth are never very white, the natural colour of teeth is little yellowish but yes if they are very yellow it cud be due to deposits on the teeth also, so kindly visit a nearby dentist and get cleaning done.

Kindly get her x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be she will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then she can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Ask her to brush her teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Pain in teeth clearly suggests caries or cavities in local language. Visit your dentist, he will take an x-ray and determine the current status of your affected tooth. If the extent of caries is not extending to the pulp (vital part of the tooth), he will suggest you to go for restoration (filling). If the extent of caries is upto the pulp you have to go for root canal treatment. X-ray and visual examinations will be helpful in suggesting you a treatment.

Sir, bleeding from the gums, especially while brushing is due to collection of food particles and debris over a long time between the tooth and the gums because of which your gums have become inflamed. There is nothing to worry. Please visit a dentist and get a cleaning done. Do not take any medicines for this unless a doctor prescribes them as they may have side effects and they will not help with this problem in any way.
