I am suffering from cross teeth's. Please suggest me, what can be done?
Hello by cross teeth I hope you mean crowding or maligned teeth. For the correction of the same you need to undergo orthodontic treatment (braces) or tooth alignment without braves with invisible trays time period for the correction of same is usually 12 to 16 months thank you

You can exercise for healthier gums as well

You can exercise for healthier gums as well
You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

I am 20 years male having tooth ache and bad smell from my mouth though I brush twice a day. Pls help.

Hello lybrate-user, brushing twice daily is very good habit in prevention of future dental problems. The reason for your tooth ache and bad smell can be the same tooth. If your tooth is having cavity, it is the place for food lodgement where it get decomposed. So along with professional cleaning you have to go for filling of same tooth in which you are having cavity.

Hi. you should immediately visit a dentist to solve your problem till the time it becomes more worse. Because sensodyne is only giving you a temporary relief. Until and unless the tooth is not being treated properly the sensitivity wont go.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

What is the healthy food do I need to take to avoid mouth infections.

BDS
Dentist,
What is the healthy food do I need to take to avoid mouth infections.
To avoid mouth infections you need to take of your oral hygiene. Avoid sticky food which causes cavities, if your found of sweets and choclates than you need to wash your mouth immediately so that sticky substance is out of your mouth. When you eat fiber food see that any particles are not accumulated between the teeth coz that agsin causes cavities and gum infections, stop aerated drinks coz they will wear off enamel which causes sensitivity. Useing correct brushing technique that is rotate your brush in circular motion on your teeth, twice a day and when you eat anything immediately rinse your mouth.

Unfortunately once the bridge is in place you cannot change its shade much. You may have to get a new bridge done.

Bleeding from gums happen when they are inflammed. There are deposits around your teeth which should be periodically cleaned from once in 6 months to once a year. Please get scaling and polishing done. That will solve your problem.
