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.

Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Normally we do not admit a patient for tooth ache in hospital. But if the doctor has advised you this there must be some other reason. Consult the doctor again and confirm about requirement for admission in hospital for the dental treatment.

What is last stage of mouth ulcer.
Mouth ulcer usally disappear within one week to 15 days. If they persist longer then you need to consult a dentist for investigation. Ulcer can happen because of poor oral hygiene, digestion problem like constipation, vitamin deficiency or any sharp tooth structure irritating oral mucosa. Apply metrogel over the sores. Drink plenty of water. Take zevit tabs once daily for 15 days. Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after each meal.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

Mam get your teeth examined by a dentist. Bad breath is caused by deposition of plaque and calculus which has to be removed by the dentist. So please do not waste time and get your teeth cleaned. Regards

Ideally you should visit to dentist for cleaning of teeth because mostly bed smell is due to deposits in your mouth. But for now you can use mouthwash after meals. Sometimes bad breath is side effect of some medications also.

Cold water, soft drinks n alcoholic beverages causes dehydration in your body. Better to take food n drinks at room temperature. Avoid alcohol in summer at least. Drink enough of fresh fruit juices n water to remain hydrated. Just check for any kind of throat infection.

There is infection of gums so you have to get scaling done from dentist.Mostly scaling is sufficient but if problem persists than xray is advised as there could be big spaces between teeth below gums.

Pain in teeth in night time when I m sleep vrey painful please tell me any answer.
Pain during sleep or lying down is a classic sign of nerve /pulp damage of the tooth. You need to visit a dentist to get the treatment. most probably you will have to get a RCT done followed by a crown. In the mean time you can take some pain-killer like Combiflam tablet. The tablets will give you some relief but definitive treatment requires visit to your dentist. I hope this helps.

There is no such thing called home remedy for teeth. Root canal is a proper cleaning of your teeth which includes removing of pulp, nerves, blood vessels along with bacteria. I prefer you to visit a naer by dentist and allow him to fix that. Thankyou.

Yes it is considered one of the signs of possible cardiac problems. But treatment of what condition. If the myocardial infarction is causing the pain then that treatment (anti-platelet drugs/angioplasty/bypass) will also treat the jaw pain. However without clinically evaluatiing it may be impossible to determine cause.
