You have tarter and calculus deposited on teeth surface and between gums and teeth surfaces. Due to that infaction is spread on gums and leads to swellown and bleeding gum problems. You require through scaling and polishing followed by further examination of periodontal pocket and require opg xray to rule out status of bone. Kindly consult dentist or periodontist regarding treatment of your problems.

Hi for sensitivity use thermoseal ra toothpaste. Rub gently on sensitive area wait for 5 minutes and then rinse. If you cant get relief after one month of use. Then you need to consult for laminating or veneering.

If it is very deep or long, you might need a suture and topical antibiotic and anesthetic application for healing.

Early morning blood is a sign of unhealthy gums. Please visit a dentist and get thorough cleaning of your gums (scaling). After that maintain a good dental hygiene and your problem should be solved.

My teeth are yellow so what is the solution to make it white?

My teeth are yellow so what is the solution to make it white?
There is a procedure known as bleaching which will whiten your teeth. First scaling and polishing of the teeth is performed followed by bleaching with lasers. Brushing keeps your teeth clean, free from decay and deposits but every person has his/her own natural colour of teeth so you cannot change your teeth colour by brushing but with bleaching we can. Consult the dentist to undergo this procedure of bleaching.

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.

Size of gums is different in upper and lower teeth. So lower teeth appear like receding. No need to worry. Visit the nearby dentist for regular check up.

Scaling and polishing will help. If you want a shade change/ lighter shade of you teeth, go ahead with tooth bleaching done professionally by a dentist.

Smoking causes periodontal probs. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. Adopt proper brushing techniques n brush twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips following brushing. Use a mouthwash n maintain oral hygiene.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.
