Kindly apply orahelp gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Take multivitamins for a month. Also notice that you are not constipated, stressed or having lack of sleep as these are few of the reasons for ulcers. Avoid hot and spicy food as this may irritate the ulcers. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

BDS, PGMHA
Dentist, Bangalore
How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

An obvious gap between the teeth may be caused due to a condition known as Diastema. This usually manifests as space between two teeth. This condition is caused due to a mismatch between the size of the bones in the jaw and the size of the teeth. This in turn, gives rise to extra space between the two teeth and may also lead to overcrowding of teeth in the mouth. The space usually occurs when the teeth are too small and the jaw is larger. Also, an oversized tissue known as the labial frenum can cause a gap between two teeth. Let us look at the ways in which this condition can be prevented and treated.

1. Prevention: Not pushing your tongue between the teeth during the teeth growing stage can ensure that this condition does not occur. Children tend to rub their tongue along the jawline when the teeth are growing, whether it is the milk teeth or the permanent ones. This can cause a gap. Also, maintaining good oral health and hygiene can help in preventing this condition. One must brush at least twice a day and floss regularly too, in order to ensure that the gap between the two teeth does not widen.

2. Orthodontic Treatment: Braces are one of the most common ways of fixing this problem. The orthodontic surgeon will usually install these braces,  which will remain in the mouth of the patient for a year or more, depending on the severity of the condition. On a monthly basis, the braces will need to be tightened so that the jaw can facilitate the movement of the teeth to close the gap.

3. Tooth Extraction: In many cases, when the braces are installed, the doctor may also have to remove or extract teeth on the sides to make space for the teeth and their movement. This is usually done when there is a related ailment like overcrowding of the teeth.

4. Crowns and other Dental Installations: Crowns, veneers as well as bonding can help in cases where the lateral incisors may be smaller than what is normal. Also, dental implants or a bridge or even a partial denture may be required in cases where extensive dentistry will be called for.

5. Frenectomy: This surgery can help in closing the gap formed by a large labial frenum. 

6. Gum Health: In case there is an infection or any other problem in the gums due to implants or braces, the gum health will have to treated and restored first and then the implants or braces can be reinstalled.

One should also wear retainers for a while after the gap has closed so that it does not appear again.

There are many reasons for bad breath besides oral hygiene. Which have to be ruled out. Other commin reasons may be. - dry mouth ie decreased flow of saliva. As saliva removes odor causing particles besides helping in digestion. Dry mouth can be due to some use of medication, breathing through mouth or salivary gland problems. Etc - use of tobacco products - medical disorders. Eg. Chronic sinusitis, respiratory tract infections, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, lactose intolerance etc. Natural bad breath remedies include chewing on mint or parsley. Drinking lots of water in case of dry mouth which you are already practicing. Chewing on sugarless gum or sucking on sugarfree candy to stimulate production of saliva. So my advice is to first rule out the cause for bad breath and go for treatment accordingly.

Hi lybrate-user there could be several reasons for the decreased mouth opening that your brother is suffering from. The best thing for him to do is to see a dentist or an oral surgeon for a diagnosis of the cause, so that appropriate treatment could be instituted.

My teeth are getting yellow. What can I do. For making it shiny white.-) please help me.
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.

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

While cementing your tooth got traumatized. So teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

My teeth are becoming yellow. There are spots and sensitivity too. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist, Dhamtari
First of all you must avoid excess intake of beverages like tea, coffee, liqour, medicines in your diet. If your teeth have discoloured you must immediately rush to dentist for bleaching(whitening) of teeth. And if there is sensitivity, primarily you should change your toothpaste. Secondarily if sensitivity remains alive you must have artificial cap or cover on your teeth.

Hi, from what you have mentioned above, it seems that you have got diabetes which is usually associated with the above symptoms. It is advisable to consult a diabetologist and get your condition treated. For dry mouth, you need to increase saliva secretion in your mouth. This can be achieved by increasing your fluid intake and by drinking lot of water. Sugar free gums are available in the market which can also help in increasing salivary production.

Dentist,
I am having severe tooth ache. Inspite of brushing twice a day.
Its not about the fact that you brush your teeth twice but how do you brush. That is on what technique you brush. Also if your teeth alignment is not proper then your brush cant reach everywhere n only then you develop these stains. You ll need a professional cleaning which is called scaling. Depending upon the severity of your stain you can do it in single or multiple sittings. Even then you are not satisfied, you can do power bleaching which will enhance your shade by three or four values. No point changing your tooth paste. Change your brushing technique.

Hello lybrate-user. Yellowish white is the natural colour of tooth. You can go for bleaching technique which gives your teeth white colour. You can get this done once in a year or two. See a dentist and get the needful done.
