I have fluorosis. I feel embarrass when I smile. please suggest something to get rid of this problem.
Visit a dentist. The method of acidic micro abrasion, followed by remineralisation procedures, assures a considerable recovery of the dental surfaces affected by fluorosis. Best way is capping or veneers for upper front 6 teeth & lower front 6 teeth. Until then use tooth mousse tooth paste. Apply this paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

I think your Canal inside your root has again infected. It's better to immediately visit to a dental clinic and consult with the dentist. A dental x-ray can help for underlying cause for your problem.

How to Deal With Overcrowding Teeth?

We all love a set of perfectly aligned teeth to show off when we smile. Many get braces done to get this straight set of teeth. However, many people find it mysterious that their teeth have suddenly started to the crowd. Somebody could even be in their late 20s, well past their growing years, and suddenly realize that there is crowding setting in for the last few months. It poses a big cosmetic problem and also affects the way teeth bite with each other.

Causes: The sudden appearance of crowding seems very mysterious. However, in most people, there is no exact reason to pinpoint and it seems it is hereditary and genetic. Despite having braces done, there is sudden crowding after the growing years are over. Though an exact correlation has not been established, it is believed that strange habits of people not related to their mouth at all cause tooth crowding. Regular pressure on the mouth by either placing the face on the head or sleeping on the belly puts a constant pressure on the mouth and leads to crowding over a prolonged period of time.

The most logical explanation is, however, what is termed as ‘physiologic mesial drift’. By nature, the teeth have a constant, very gradual movement towards the incisors which is the midpoint of the jaw. Given this inherent quality, there is mild constant pressure from the molars towards the incisors and this is what leads to crowding. Stronger jaw bones may slow the process, but it is not yet proven. This physiologic mesial drift is the reason why the lower front teeth are the most common area of crowding.

Management: The earlier the dentist intervenes, the shorter the treatment duration and the quicker the correction. Radiographs and models would be required to identify the problem completely. The bite with the upper teeth needs to be assessed though to make sure it is not very deep. The age of the person also determine the results.

Mild to moderate crowding in this area can be managed with just a lower brace for about 5 to 10 months. In some cases, even an upper brace would be required. In cases of severe crowding, some cases even presenting with two rows of teeth, some teeth definitely have to be removed and the remaining teeth need to be aligned and the extra spaces closed. Severe crowding may also require you to wear a retained for a long period. This could be placed on the inner side (tongue or palatal side) to improve the cosmetic effect.

There is no need to panic when you realize the teeth are crowding, there is definitely a way to flash that bright smile again! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am a medical student. I am having mouth sores or ulcer. Somepeople says its because of tension. But I do not have any tension. Every two weeks I am getting mouth ulcer. Why is it coming? Is it because of vitamin problem.

Aphthous mouth ulcers are painful sores that can occur anywhere inside the mouth. They are the most common type of mouth ulcer. At least 1 in 5 people can develop aphthous mouth ulcers at some stage in their life. Women are affected more often than men. There are three types: Minor aphthous ulcers are the most common (8 in 10 cases). They are small, round, or oval, and are less than 10 mm across. They look pale yellow, but the area around them may look swollen and red. Only one ulcer may develop, but up to five may appear at the same time. Each ulcer lasts 7-10 days, and then goes without leaving a scar. They are not usually very painful. Major aphthous ulcers occur in about 1 in 10 cases. They tend to be 10 mm or larger across. Usually only one or two appear at a time. Each ulcer lasts from two weeks to several months, but will heal leaving a scar. They can be very painful and eating may become difficult. Herpetiform ulcers occur in about 1 in 10 cases. These are tiny pinhead-sized ulcers, about 1-2 mm across. Multiple ulcers occur at the same time, but some may join together and form irregular shapes. Each ulcer lasts one week to two months. Despite the name, they have nothing to do with herpes or the herpes virus. Aphthous ulcers usually first occur between the ages of 10 and 40 years. They then recur but there can be days, weeks, months, or years between each bout of ulcers. The ulcers tend to come back (recur) less often as you become older. In many cases, they eventually stop coming back. Some people feel a burning in part (s) of the mouth for a day or so before an ulcer appears. What causes aphthous mouth ulcers? The cause is not known. They are not infectious, and you cannot 'catch' aphthous mouth ulcers. In most cases, the ulcers develop for no apparent reason in people who are healthy. In some cases the ulcers are related to other factors or diseases. These include: Injury - such as badly fitting dentures, a graze from a harsh toothbrush, etc. Changes in hormone levels. Some women find that mouth ulcers occur just before their period. In some women, the ulcers only develop after the menopause. Some ex-smokers find they develop ulcers only after stopping smoking. A lack of iron, or a lack of certain vitamins (such as vitamin B12 and folic acid) may be a factor in some cases. Rarely, a food allergy may be the cause. Mouth ulcers run in some families. So, a genetic factor may play a part in some cases. Stress or anxiety is said to trigger aphthous mouth ulcers in some people. Some medications can cause mouth ulcers. Examples of medicines that can cause mouth ulcers are: nicorandil, anti-inflammatory medicines (eg, ibuprofen) and oral nicotine replacement therapy. Mouth ulcers are more common in people with Crohn's disease, coeliac disease, HIV infection, and Behçet's disease. However, these ulcers are not the aphthous type. You should inform your doctor if you have any other symptoms in addition to the mouth ulcers. Other important symptoms would include skin or genital ulcers or joint (rheumatological) pains and inflammation. Rarely, severe mouth ulcers can occur after taking a medicine you are allergic to. Sometimes a blood test or other investigations are advised if other causes of mouth ulcers are suspected. What are the treatments for aphthous ulcers? Treatment aims to ease the pain when ulcers occur, and to help them to heal as quickly as possible. There is no treatment that prevents aphthous mouth ulcers from recurring. No treatment may be needed The pain is often mild, particularly with the common 'minor' type of aphthous ulcer. Each bout of ulcers will go without treatment. General measures include Avoiding spicy foods, acidic fruit drinks, and very salty foods (such as crisps) which can make the pain and stinging worse. Using a straw to drink, to avoid the liquids touching ulcers in the front of the mouth. (Note: do not drink hot drinks with a straw, as you may burn your throat.) Using a very soft toothbrush. See a dentist if you have badly fitting dentures. If you suspect a medication is causing the ulcers, then a change may be possible. For example, if you are using oral nicotine replacement therapy (nicotine gum or lozenges), it may help to use a different type instead such as patches or nasal spray. Some medicines may ease your symptoms from the mouth ulcers Chlorhexidine mouthwash (brand name Corsodyl® or Chlorohex®) may reduce the pain. It may also help ulcers to heal more quickly. It also helps to prevent ulcers from becoming infected. Unfortunately, it does not reduce the number of new ulcers. Chlorhexidine mouthwash is usually used twice a day. It may stain teeth brown if you use it regularly. However, the stain is not usually permanent, and can be reduced by avoiding drinks that contain tannin (such as tea, coffee, or red wine), and by brushing teeth before use. Rinse your mouth well after you brush your teeth, as some ingredients in toothpaste can inactivate chlorhexidine. Steroid lozenges (brand name Corlan® pellets or Betnesol® tablets) may also reduce the pain, and may help ulcers to heal more quickly. By using your tongue you can keep a lozenge in contact with an ulcer until the lozenge dissolves. A steroid lozenge works best the sooner it is started once an ulcer erupts. If used early, it may 'nip it in the bud' and prevent an ulcer from fully erupting. The usual dose is one lozenge, four times a day, until the ulcer goes. In children, use for no more than five days at a time. A painkilling oral rinse, gel, or mouth spray may help to ease pain. Examples include benzydamine spray (brand name Difflam®), choline salicylate gel (brand name Bonjela®), or triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog in Orabase®). Bonjela® should not be used in children under the age of 16 due to a potential risk of Reye's syndrome if it is overused. This is the same reason why aspirin cannot be used in children too. Note: Bonjela teething gel® no longer contains choline salicylate and has been reformulated with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic (to cause temporary numbing). The effect of painkilling medicines is unfortunately short-lived. You can buy all the treatments listed above from pharmacies, without a prescription. Other treatments may be tried if the above do not help or where the pain and ulceration are severe. Examples include a course of steroid tablets, strong steroid mouthwashes and doxycycline mouthwashes.

Since teeth cleaning is as important for children as for adults, they should use a toothbrush which has a small round head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Bad breath after brushing twice a day and even after using colgate plax and listerine. What to do?

Dentist, Nagpur
It's nice to hear you have good habits. Bad breath has lots of causes other than teeth. If you have stomach problems or chest infection or sinusitis. Or decreased, salivation.
