You are suffering from gingivitis that is inflammation of gums due to food lodgement between teeth. Please get your teeth cleaned at any dental clinic & thereafter maintain well by brushing twice daily & rinsing after every meal.

Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 48 hours. If possible chew on the opposite side of your extraction site. Drink lots of liquids and eat soft,nutritious foods. Strictly avoid hard, hot food & drinks for first 24 hours. Avoid spicy food. Eat food like dalia, khichadi.

Brush twice a day and floss daily even when your braces are on. The food particles get stuck into the braces very easily. It is very important to keep them clean.

It sounds like Leukoplakia. Avoid hot and chilly foods. Visit your dentist and get proper diagnosis. If it is Leukoplakia you should be prescribed with Topical corticosteriod ointments like Amlexanox gel or kenacort gel or something like that. Please visit the dentist.

Avoid consuming food which might get stuck in your braces especially sticky and chewy food.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

How to keep teeth fresh b'coz mine is a very badly coloured in yellow since three years.

How to keep teeth fresh b'coz mine is a very badly coloured in yellow since three years.
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. You may consult me in person. . 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

Taking kids to the dentist is necessary to keep their teeth healthy and promote excellent oral hygiene habits. But from a child's point of view, a trip to the dentist can be a scary event -- lying on a chair in an unfamiliar room filled with unfamiliar noises and objects, all while a stranger is poking cold, metallic, and unusual instruments in his mouth. Plus, as your child's teeth continue to fall out and grow, he may take at least 10 trips to the dentist before starting kindergarten. To help ease future visits for your child (and for the dentist!), follow these steps so that he will feel comfortable and more relaxed.

Hello doctor I am having bleeding from my gums regularly when I brush my teeth, what should I do.
Reason for gum bleeding: most probably you have gum infection because of tartar or calculus. Please visit the dentist and get the gums cleaned. Clean gums are healthy gums, they won't bleed.

U might have 3rd motor (wisdom tooth) impacted. Consult to your dentist you might have deep carious teeth. T/t filling the teeth. If caries are deep then root canal treatment is the option you might have root pieces present which causing infection and pain. Extraction is the option.

I have mouth ulcer problem for a long time say 4 to 5 years I am 23 now. Already tried lots of medicines. But no permanent relief. What would you suggest over this?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Hello- There is no connection between Oral Pappiloma virus and salty mouth. You might be facing some indigestion issues. Eat light at dinner, avoid rice and curd, and take a mild laxative like figs or isabgol with milk at bed time. Your problem will be solved.
