We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure.

Faulty brushing can lead to tooth substance loss leading to sensitivity and other problems.It increases chances of dental diseases in a person. Please learn and follow the correct technique of brushing with the help of your dentist.

Blood comes from my teeth whenever I brush my teeth, eat or sometimes blood comes on its own, please help me.

Blood comes from my teeth whenever I brush my teeth, eat or sometimes blood comes on its own, please help me.
Blood can come from gingiva and not from teeth. You need to undergo checkup it can most probably due to gum infection. Go for a full mouth cleaning from dentist. Practise good oral hygeine. Brush regularly. Use a good quality toothbrush. Change your brush every3-4 months. Gargle with warm water after every meal. And do visit your dentist every six months.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

Hello, I am suffering from the wisdom tooth pain issue. I am having wisdom tooth which has not grown fully. Only some portion of wisdom teeth is visible from outside and some part of skin is trying to come on the top of half grown wisdom teeth. I am very nervous and little tense regarding this issue. I have also taken xray for the same. Wisdom teeth is preety straight so this is good for me but There is one black line in xray in the root of the wisdom teeth. Doctor told me this is an infection. Do I need to use any antibiotic to relive from pain? In future, Do I need to remove this wisdom tooth? Please suggest me the right direction to solve this issue as I am very much tensed. Thanks a lot in advance.

Dear lybrate user, the problem you're facing is fairly common and is not a huge issue so please drop your stress. The condition is called pericoronitis i. E. The inflammation of tissues surrounding an erupting tooth. The ultimate solution for the problem is removal of this wisdom tooth because the ideal age for eruption of this tooth is 18-25 years. If it hasn't erupted till now, there are chances that it'll never erupt fully and will keep causing the symptoms in future also. You could wait for another 6 months-1 year at the max. In addition, sometimes a partially erupted tooth becomes the hub of food accumulation leading to caries in nearby teeth, infection and bad odor. Consult your dentist soon, rinse your mouth with warm salt water 3-4 times daily to relieve the swelling and keep the area clean.

Dental health and your general health are very closely related. Kindly get your dental health check-up done at regular basis. Also you need to keep your dentist aware about your general health and any specific medications you are taking on a regular basis.

Pls visit any orthodontist for your problem. He will be the right person to give opinion in your case. Mild malalignment can be corrected by proper smile designing. But if you have gross problem lot of things need to be considered. Proper diagnostic xrays and models of your mouth needs to be made.

Hi. I have undergone route canal treatment for one my tooth. Wanted to know is waring tooth cap is mandatory? or is it fine without cap.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Cap is not mandatory in all cases. If your tooth can be restored by normal filling only, you dont require cap. If tooth is badly decayed and not in state of filling, you require a cap for extra strength.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening & gum strengthening procedure. 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. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay.

Dear lybrate user, bleeding from gums on brushing or eating indicated poor oral hygiene and gum disease. Consult your dentist soon, get a professional cleaning/scaling done. Rinse your mouth 3-4 times daily with lukewarm water with a pinch of salt. Brush gently with a soft toothbrush.

My 2 bottom incisors feel weirdly rough when I touch them with my tongue from the inside and look kinda funny but from the smiling view the look perfectly fine, I am afraid they might be decaying what should I do or take.

BDS
Dentist, Kolar
Roughness could b due to accumulation of plaque n calculus as one tends to brush less/ improperly the lingual surface of teeth. Get a professional cleaning done by dentist who'll guide you if decay exists.
