Benefit of flossing

Dentist, Lucknow
Benefit of flossing
For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.

Has x-ray for last tooth, the wisdom tooth being taken for the left side, tooth no 38. Without looking at the x-rays, it is very difficult to access the clinical situation though. If the tooth no 38 is impacted, then it can induce pressure which can again cause pain. Also if possible, then you can send a copy of the x-rays over to us for evaluation. Good luck.

Yes you can eat whatever you wish to. There are no restrictions as such to consumption of non vegetarian food items. Just take care to avoid putting pressure on the area of extraction.

My teeth are bleeding some times what should I do?

BDS
Dentist,
My teeth are bleeding some times what should I do?
Hi, gum bleeding can be due to various factors. After proper examination by your dentist you will come to know the exact cause of it. Main and basic reasons for your gum bleeding& bad breath problem are plaque/calculus/tartar deposits present in your teeth. These factors cause gum inflammation known as gingivitis which leads to swollen and bleeding gums. Apart from this other reasons for gum bleeding could be improper alignment of the teeth deficiency of vitamin c (also known as scurvy) prolonged use of some medications like aspirin, underlying systemic conditions like bleeding disorders.(very very rare possibility) it is advisable to visit a dentist and get proper treatment done which may include scaling (i. E. Professional cleaning) & or flap surgery to avoid loss of teeth in long run. Also scaling is to be done every 6 months as a routine maintenance procedure for healthy teeth and strong gums.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get an x-ray done for that tooth. If there is a cavity get it filled. Bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

It only reduces the burning by providing coldness. Instead use turmeric powder mixed in water. It has healing property.

After removing your braces, your orthodontist would have given you retainers to wear. You need to wear them regularly. Since your spaces are already opening up you can get your retainers checked and tightened/ adjusted by your orthodontist and continue wearing them regularly 24*7 for at least 6 months and then continue with night time wear later on.

Hi, I have been getting bad smell from my mouth please suggest me.

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath,
Hi bad breath or halitosis happens because of bad oral hygiene or because of some infection in the mouth. In rare cases it can also happen because of infection in severe infection in throat or even stomach. Visit a dentist if you are having any pain in the tooth or just for a regular floss. You can also use lemon peel or orange peel to rub on the gums as it reduces infection.

Reality Check: 98% Adult Indians Need Teeth Scaling. Why?

Dentist, Gurgaon
Reality Check: 98% Adult Indians Need Teeth Scaling. Why?
Why most Indian Adults Need Teeth Scaling?

Huge number of Indians tend to ignore or abuse their dental health. Most adults in the country need regular scaling due to their food and lifestyle habits.
Teeth scaling is one of the most common methods used for treating gum disease. This procedure helps remove plaque and tartar (causes of gum tissue inflammation) build-up on your teeth. In a nutshell, it reverses the occurrence of gum disease, while preventing further development of it into a serious condition. A non-surgical procedure, teeth scaling is different from a normal dental cleaning as it involves cleaning the tooth areas that are under the gum line. It removes substances that cannot be removed through brushing.

The importance of scaling

In addition to giving you healthy gums, dental scaling is important for reducing your risk of having a heart disease. If you’re wondering how teeth scaling is connected to your heart, here’s how – several studies show that gum disease can increase your risk of heart disease as the bacteria that build up along the gum line get dislodged, enter your blood and attach themselves to the blood vessels, causing the formation of clots. These clots then cause a drop in your blood flow to the heart, bringing about a rise in your blood pressure, and consequently increasing your risk of a heart attack.

How often it must be done?

To keep your gums and teeth in good condition, it is best to go for teeth scaling every 6 months. This is because as you age your saliva becomes thicker with a decrease in its water content. As a result, your mouth becomes more prone to dryness, thereby allowing the food and bacteria to remain longer in the mouth, causing the formation of plaque. A soft sticky film on the teeth, plaque continues to form in your mouth and begins to mineralize into tartar within 10-14 hours. This makes it all the more necessary to get this job done on a regular basis.
