Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

Hi, there are various method / products available to whiten teeth. The most effective is in-office whitening done by a dental professional. It's usually a one hour procedure in which whitening gel will apply to the teeth and activate by whitening light for 10 to 15 minutes. 2 or 3 such sessions may required.

You might just need a professional cleaning of your teeth. Also learn proper brushing technique and use soft toothbrush. Be gentle on your teeth and gums while brushing. You can discuss about professional cleaning with your dentist.

Few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Filling your stomach full before the Root Canal Treatmen (RCT) is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

I have been suffering from mouth ulcers since 5 year so let me know about right way to remove ulcers from root.
Mouth ulcers are mostly due to increased stress, reduced sleep, diet nutrition deficiency, viral infection, fever and hormonal disturbances. As you have long term problem of recurring ulceration you should look into your diet and the stress factor. Eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables to increase your fibre intake, try meditation to reduce the stress level. Also, take a over the counter multi-vitamin preparation daily. A more detailed regimen of medication can be suggested by your dentist after a detailed history and clinical examination.

In my mouth there are three small poxes just inside the lips I feels pain when I take food or water. Suggest me thanks.

Sub mucous fibrosis is a serious oral condition. Generally happens due to consuming betel nut, tobacco and betel chewing. Hot and spicy food. Yes this disease can be treated. There are some drugs. Surgical process can also help. Lycopene is very helpful to minimise the symptoms. Avoid hot and spicy food. Quit the habit of betel nut pan and pan mascara like things. Take care of oral hygiene.
