Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 48 hours. If possible chew on the opposite side of your extraction site. Drink lots of liquids and eat soft,nutritious foods. Strictly avoid hard, hot food & drinks for first 24 hours. Avoid spicy food. Eat food like dalia, khichadi.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

I have a whitish coated tongue which looks hairy on the upper part. This has resulted into difficulty in speaking. My words do not come out clearly. I have this problem for couple of years. I need a pink healthy tongue. Can any one please help?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
A coated tongue is unlikely to be the cause of improper speech. The simultaneous presence of both problems could be a mere coincidence. Please get yourself checked properly to pinpoint the real cause and treat it subsequently.

Bleeding gums can be sign of early disease of the gums. You need to get your teeth professionally cleaned to remove any accumulated tartar on your teeth so that your gums can get healthy. After that brushing twice a day with a recommended technique and using a mouthwash regularly should help you maintain your gums in a healthy state.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Is there any easy remedy for dark colored gums?

Is there any easy remedy for dark colored gums?
The color of normal gingiva /gums is pink which changes in color due to underlying blood vessels. Therefore there is no problem with dark gums, the can be due to smoking also. As long as gums are healthy and no other problem you can be happy just clean your teeth regularly and massage your gums daily.

Get yourself checked by dentist. If pain is dull and continuous then you need to go for gum treatment. If pain is sharp and usually at night or on biting then get the root canal treatment done. If treated tooth is giving you pain then get xray done then previous treatment can be evaluated.

Know your mouthwashes.

BDS, Certification In Oral Implantology
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Know your mouthwashes.
Know your mouthwashes.
Here are few myths and common queries that our patients ask us regarding mouthwashes:

1. All mouthwashes are equal:
Mouthwashes can be classified as cosmetic and therapeutic. Rinsing with cosmetic mouthwash will loosen bits of food from your teeth, lessen bacteria in mouth, temporarily reduce bad breath and leave a refreshing taste in your mouth. These products can't make a greater claim than that. Therapeutic mouthwashes contains active ingredients like chlorhexidine, fluorides, cetylperidinium etc, which have proven active against fighting plaque and bacteria (s) in mouth for longer duration.

2. Mouthwash is harmless:
Many mouthwashes contains high amount of alcohol which may cause dry mouth and ironically in turn causing bad breath. Alcohol free mouthwashes are also available. Active ingredients like chlorhexidine causes temproary altered taste in mouth and is not recommended to be used for longer duration.

3. Mouthwash cures bad breath:
Mouthwashes temporarily curtains bad breath. Causes of bad breath are variable and should be accessed before unjustified use of mouthwashes.

4. Mouthwash can replace brushing:
Mouthwash acts as an add-on, not replacement for brushing and flossing. Use of mouthwash in conjunction with brushing and flossing will improve overall personal oral hygiene.

5. A little swish will do:
Generally we swish mouthwash in a few seconds because of its bitter taste or lack of knowledge. Mouthwash should be diluted as per the instructions given by the manufacturer and should be swished vigorously for 30 seconds.

Tips for Proper Brushing

Dentist, Ernakulam
Tips for Proper Brushing

Some easy steps to do to help your teeth keep clean:

  1. When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line.
  2. Both the gum line and the tooth surface should be in contact with the bristles.
  3. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up-and-down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding.
  4. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums, place the bristles at a 45-degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up-and-down motion.
  5. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria which might cause badbreath.

Try to brush at least twice a day to prevent acid buildup from the breakdown of food by bacteria. However, if your work or activities prevent you from doing this, thoroughly rinse your mouth with  water after eating to minimize the amount of food that would serve as substrate for the bacteria.

How to get a fresh teeth after cleaning them from doctor. Please tell me the best pest and brush and more.
Thanks for your query. After getting the teeth cleaned, you can maintain the teeth in a good condition by brushing your teeth twice daily and rinse your mouth soon after eating anything. You can use any tooth paste like colgate, pepsodent etc. But technique is important. You can use medium bristle tooth brush. Take care.

Gums bleeding is due to infection in gums. Get scalling done by dentist. Take vit c tab for one week. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs.
