You should consider getting a professional cleaning done by the dentist. The bleeding is due to the gums getting inflamed and bothering you.

Kindly get the depth of cavity checked by taking an xray. If the cavity is deep you might need a root canal treatment. If not deep then kindly get a filling done in the tooth.

Probably they need professional cleaning an polishing then you can maintain it afterwards. You might be brushing teeth thrice but technique may be wrong. If the yellowish layer is formed because of fluorides. Cleaning will not help. You need to get tooth colored veneers or laminates. As the name suggests the affected teeth are prepared and tooth colored materials are placed directly or indirectly.

You need to get bleaching and professional cleaning. And maintain it by brushing twice daily and rinse after each meal. You can use colgate visible white toothpaste regularly.

Want a medicine for bad breath.canyou help me?

BDS
Dentist,
Want a medicine for bad breath.canyou help me?
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Massaging your gums daily with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth will increase the blood activation and will keep your gums healthy and safe.

My teeth are blooding when I use hard paste. Is this a serious problem? What should I do.

My teeth are blooding when I use hard paste. Is this a serious problem? What should I do.
Irregular brushing technique with a worn off brush will certainly cause the tooth abrasion, gums to recede & thereby resulting in root exposure. Exposure of (dentin or cementum) layer of the tooth or trauma to the root nerve tissue causes Sensitivity. Adv cleaning and artificial enamel filling 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.

My son is 4 years old . He has cavity in his jaw what should I do ?

BDS
Dentist,
As he is just 4 years old, you should make it a point to see if he brushes his teeth properly. Remember he should brush his teeth after sticky foodstuffs such as chocolates. Inculcate the habit of toothbrushing at night, before going to bed. The dental cavity can be treated by a filling or RCT depending on the extent & related pain if any. So visit a dentist for the needful. But always remember - "Prevention is better than cure" Regards.
