Use soft bristle toothbrush, clean the entire surface of each quadrant one by one, use bristle at 45 degree angle, go for scaling every six month, use dental floss and 2% chlorhexidine mouthwash on regular basis, in case of yellow teeth u can go for bleaching or veneering but keep in mind bleaching may be associated with sensitivity.

I think one of tooth is rotten. It turned into black and it is hurting the right jaw so badly. Is there any first aid I could do before going to doctor to avoid the pain. Any medicine I could by at the medical shop without prescription.

Dear lybrate-user, the toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. Send images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Kindly consult a physician & dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Yes there is, nowadays few dentists are using invisalign technique to arrange the teeth without placing orthodontic brackets (clips). These are invisible occlusal trays that you have wear. Excellent esthetics, great results.

Thanks for your query. The bleeding gums is because of the gum infection secondary to deposits. The other possible cause can be secondary to bleeding disorders. Nothing to be panic, get your teeth cleaned by a dentist and get a complete blood investigations to rule out other bleeding disorders. I hope I have answered your query Take care.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

You are having caries in your mouth. Caries when deep pains a lot. To confirm you need to do xray. You treatment will depend on xray which is either normal filling or if deep then root canal treatment.
