Brush. Also comes smell what can I do.
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.

Hello lybrate-user. Habit of chewing tobacco products leads to submucous fibrosis which results in burning mouth, inability to open mouth. You need to go for intraoral injections which increases your mouth opening and practice mouth opening exercises daily. See a dentist soon and get the needful done.

Are You Taking Care of Your Aging Parents Dental Needs?

Blog by Dr. Ratnika agarwal, dental surgeon/owner of smile up dental care implant center, pune

Advancing age puts many seniors at risk for a number of oral health problems, such as:


    Darkened teeth. Caused, to some extent, by changes in dentin -- the bone-like tissue that underlies the tooth enamel -- and by a lifetime of consuming stain-causing foods beverages.
    Dry mouth. It is caused by reduced saliva flow, which can be a result of cancer treatments as well as certain diseases medication side effects. Many medicines can cause dry mouth.
    Diminished sense of taste. While advancing age impairs the sense of taste, diseases, medications,  dentures can also contribute to this sensory loss.
    Root decay. This is caused by exposure of the tooth root to decay-causing acids.
    Gum disease. Caused by plaque made worse by food left in teeth, use of tobacco products, poor-fitting bridges and dentures, poor diets, and certain diseases, such as anemia, cancer, and diabetes, this is often a problem for older adults.
    Tooth loss. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
    Uneven jawbone. This is caused by tooth then not replacing missing teeth. This allows the rest of the teeth to drift and shift into open spaces
    Denture-induced stomatitis. Ill-fitting dentures, poor dental hygiene, or a buildup of the fungus candida cause this condition, which is inflammation of the tissue underlying a denture.
    Thrush. Diseases or drugs that affect the immune system can trigger the overgrowth of the fungus candida in mouth


Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary.

Oral hygiene tips for seniors:

Daily brushing flossing of natural teeth is essential to keeping them in good oral health. Plaque can build up quickly on the teeth of seniors, especially if oral hygiene is neglected, & lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

To maintain good oral health, it's important for all individuals -- regardless of age -- to:


    Brush at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste
    Floss at least once a day
    Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day
    Visit our team of experience dentist at smile up dental care implant center on a regular schedule for cleaning an oral exam. We will be very happy to serve you.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

Hello, bad smell could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily. Night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Dear bad Odour from mouth is a very common problem. Although it can have various local as well as systemic causes, the most common cause of the problem is poor oral hygiene. It seems you already brush twice daily and also use mouth wash. However how often do you clean your tongue? unclean tongue is a very frequent source of bad breath. You can either use your brush or the tongue cleaner to properly clean your tongue after meals. In addition I will suggest you to start using dental floss at least once daily. Dietary & lifestyle modification like avoiding odorous food like onion, garlic, smoking (if you smoke) can also help. Don't let your mouth dry, sip water intermittently. I am sure you will get over the problem. Sometimes other diseases like infection of respiratory tract (sinusitis) or digestive system disturbances can also be the culprit but think about these only if you don't get relief by following the above suggested steps. Regards.

Accumulation of plaque and tartar in the teeth leads to gum diseases. But they can be reversed at the initial stage itself, by being treated. accumulated plaque and tartar removed from a dentist.

Hello lybrate-user, this is gum infection which develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth. This infection leads to gum swelling and bleeding. I advise you to visit a dentist soon for professional cleaning of her teeth. This will help in removal of these layers. Further swelling will decrease slowly and infection will subside soon. Meanwhile, she can use antibiotic mouth rinses twice a day for two weeks. But only professional help or treatment is not enough. She needs to follow proper oral hygiene habits because this problem is recurring in nature. Brushing twice a day, flossing teeth, rinsing mouth after every meal, and cleaning tongue will help preventing it's re-occurence.

Kabhi kabhi humari ankho se keeda (caries) dikh ni pata, apko dentist ke pas jakar us jagah jeha apko dard ho reha hai, uska x-ray karwana hoga. Tab pata chalega ki keha tak keeda laga hai or fir usi hisab se uska ilaj hoga. Sambhawtah, root canal treatment (rct) se thik ho sakta hai lekin agar jayda ho tto usse nikalwa lena hi behtar hai.
