It is advisable to remove your born teeth since it causes crowding of your second upcoming teeth. If the teeth are malaligned you may require braces to correct the teeth position in future.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

I suffer from chronic bad breath and my oral hygiene skills are fantastic. What should I do? PLease tell me.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Daer clarence you are having chronic bad breath even after having good oral hygiene smell from mouth can be due to indigestion and poor oral hygiene. Smell can be prevented by proper cleaning of teeth and maintaining oral hygiene. Take tab celin 500 once a day for one week. Kindly visit dental surgeon for checkup and prowr cleaning of teeth. Use hydrogen per oxide for gargles. Keep mouth healthy and free from smell. Best way is cleaning and polishing of teeth and maintenance of oral hygiene. Use colgate tooth paste and listerin mouth wash.

A very nice question indeed. Yes, consumption of a lot of citrus food and drinks can lead to erosion of you enamel surface. Enamel is the outer protective white colored layer of your teeth. And consuming lot of citrus juices erode the superficial layer of enamel exposing the underlying dentin (part of tooth having sensation) leading to major tooth problem of tooth sensitivities. Although this erosion process is slow but in addition to you daily wear of enamel due to ageing process will definitly speed up your side effects. So I would advice you to go for weight with proper exercise and a balanced diet and avoid taking such short cuts. Get some muscle movements.

Hi, a healthy mouth doesnot depend on how expensive your toothpaste or toothbrush is. It depends on how you brush your teeth. An oral prophylaxis (scaling) followed by a proper bushing technique will solve your problem. Dr Pooja Patel Mumbai

Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are tonsils, trauma from teeth, dry mouth, tonsillitis, stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of spicy n hot foods. Start some vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Increase your water intake. Avoid oilly n spicy food completely.

If doctor has advised rct, you should go for it to save the tooth, otherwise you will loose the tooth. And if you don't want to save the tooth (which is not preferable) you can get it extracted.

Our teeth perform the primary function of breaking down the food particles for further intake. So, healthy teeth equals to a healthy body. Visit your dentist every once in a while to keep your primary organs healthy.

Hello, pressing the teeth is not the solution for the same. You actually need to visit the orthodontist for thorough check up and further treatment.
