I m having problem in teeth when I do brush bleeding is there so wat should I do now.

MDS
Dentist, Lucknow
Although there are many causes of bleeding gums like any bleeding disorder, ill fitting denture, improper flossing, use of blood thinner, deficiency of vitamin k etc. But the most common cause in most of the patient is gingivitis or periodontitis that is inflammation of gum due to plaque build up because of poor oral hygiene. Consult nearest dentist for proper treatment plan and for maintaining proper oral hygiene.

If you have a history of gum diseases and are undergoing the orthodontic treatment, it is advisable that you consult your periodontist as well.

I am 32 years old my problem is my mouth and teeth. Mouth smell is very bad smelling. In the morning time its smells too badplz suggest me medicine. My weight is 90 kgs.

Dentist, Gurgaon
Morning bad breath is a common condition but it goes after you brush. you can prevent this by brushing at night along with antibacterial mouth rinses after dinner because at night we keep mouth close for about 6-9 hrs. this is enough time for bacteria to act over this food lodged over and between the teeth and hence cause bad breath. note that there should be a gap of atleast half an hour between brushing and antibacterial mouth rinses. if this problem remains persistent during daytime also, then visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth.

How to best care of mouth gum nd teeth nd incase of teeth pain at night what can we do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Use Homeodent toothpaste twice daily, morning and night before sleep. Take care. Home remedy:- Cleaning your teeth with fresh orange peel on a regular basis will reduce the yellow tinge accumulated on your teeth. Rub orange peel over your teeth every night before going to sleep. The vitamin C and calcium in the orange peel will combat the microorganisms throughout the night. Do this for a few weeks and you will notice effective results. If fresh orange peel is not available, you can use dried orange peel powder. Take Mag phos 6X, 5 tabs with warm water if you get toothache at night. Take care.

I am starting to loose all my teeth and they are also bleeding very heavily what to do to get relief from this?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. 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. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Bad breath or halitosis as it is caused is an unpleasant smell from the mouth of a person as he breaths out, when breathing in n out r normal essential functions, the causes can b basically decided into two a local causes b gen causes. Mostly it is due to local causes which r a poor cleaning of teeth, mouth tongue,lodgement of food in cavities , in between teeth , chewing on some thing which smells eg paan masalas,chewing gums , sound, ills hie etc. When some smells may b pleasant but stagnant u cleaned smells r always bad as the come from decaying food stuff etc it's like u r passing around a dustbin . As mouth is not dustbin keep it clean n always, the other local causes r gum infections, infection of tonsils, infection of sinuses basically maxillary sinus situated in middle face two of them behind nose.Other sinuses may also contribute but to very little extent, some nose infection may also contribute to the smells. Unclean skin like black heads type on nasal skin , very oily skin may also contribute n enhance the smells.
THE BASIC CAUSE BEING UNCLEAN BASIC REMEDY IS ALSO THE SAME KEEP CLEAN , REGULAR CHEWING , CONSUMPTION OF TOBACCO RELATED STUFF eg CHEWING SMOKING WILL ADD TO THE SMELLS. ANS AGAIN STOP BAD HABBITS, USE STANDARD TOOTH PASTE, BRUSH N USE CORRECT TECHNIQUE CONSULT DENTIST FOR DEMON. MOST OF UR PROB OF BAD BREATH WUOLD B SOLVED.
IN NEXT WILL DISCUSS OTHER CAUSES

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

BDS, PGMHA
Dentist, Bangalore
How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

An obvious gap between the teeth may be caused due to a condition known as Diastema. This usually manifests as space between two teeth. This condition is caused due to a mismatch between the size of the bones in the jaw and the size of the teeth. This in turn, gives rise to extra space between the two teeth and may also lead to overcrowding of teeth in the mouth. The space usually occurs when the teeth are too small and the jaw is larger. Also, an oversized tissue known as the labial frenum can cause a gap between two teeth. Let us look at the ways in which this condition can be prevented and treated.

1. Prevention: Not pushing your tongue between the teeth during the teeth growing stage can ensure that this condition does not occur. Children tend to rub their tongue along the jawline when the teeth are growing, whether it is the milk teeth or the permanent ones. This can cause a gap. Also, maintaining good oral health and hygiene can help in preventing this condition. One must brush at least twice a day and floss regularly too, in order to ensure that the gap between the two teeth does not widen.

2. Orthodontic Treatment: Braces are one of the most common ways of fixing this problem. The orthodontic surgeon will usually install these braces,  which will remain in the mouth of the patient for a year or more, depending on the severity of the condition. On a monthly basis, the braces will need to be tightened so that the jaw can facilitate the movement of the teeth to close the gap.

3. Tooth Extraction: In many cases, when the braces are installed, the doctor may also have to remove or extract teeth on the sides to make space for the teeth and their movement. This is usually done when there is a related ailment like overcrowding of the teeth.

4. Crowns and other Dental Installations: Crowns, veneers as well as bonding can help in cases where the lateral incisors may be smaller than what is normal. Also, dental implants or a bridge or even a partial denture may be required in cases where extensive dentistry will be called for.

5. Frenectomy: This surgery can help in closing the gap formed by a large labial frenum. 

6. Gum Health: In case there is an infection or any other problem in the gums due to implants or braces, the gum health will have to treated and restored first and then the implants or braces can be reinstalled.

One should also wear retainers for a while after the gap has closed so that it does not appear again.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Cost of implant cannot say but generally will be 25k. (10k for prosthesis) Advantages: replacement of missin teeth with fixed implant.If you don't have a posterior back tooth for support and are unable to place a bridge, better than the bridge because you don't have to grind the neighbouring teeth. Disadvantages;: cost.

MDS Prosthodontics

Teeth do not come white in colour, its in shade of yellow, some have slight yellow while others have more yellowish. If you are not happy with the natural tooth colour then go for bleaching, applying natural products dosent works as effective as bleaching.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Toothache - Know How Homeopathy Helps To Treat It!

Toothache is perhaps one of the most abhorred form of body ache, which can potentially stall the normalcy of our lives to a great extent. Although seemingly non-hazardous, toothache can also lead to severe health implications. The dental health often indexes the condition of the heart and hence, should not be taken lightly. Toothache usually emanate from cavities or gum infection. While there are multiple cures for the same, these are the types of ailments, which are laden with the risk of relapse. The last minute rush to the dentist may buy temporary relieve from the excruciating pain, but what you should actually look for is a more holistic and sustained cure. Homeopathy brings all the benefits of natural herbs and traditional condiments to ensure your well-being and provide substantial relief from the menace that toothache can be. Some of the most reliable cures have been listed below.

  1. Merc Sol: This is a very beneficial remedy for toothaches which are accompanied by increased salivation and swelling in the gum. This brings additional warmth to the gums which largely mitigate the pain.
  2. Coffea: Coffea functions as an effective adjuvant to cold water in decreasing toothaches. It works best on increased sensitivity and irritability and cures them both to a large extent.
  3. Sepia: Sometimes excessive intake of sweets leaves a bitter aftertaste in one’s mouth, resulting in unbearable toothaches. The ringing pain often spreads to the ears and the gums also get swollen. Sepia sufficiently pacifies such agitation.
  4. Kreosote: Kreosote relieves those extreme kinds of toothache which reach up to the temples and induce sleeplessness in the patient. It also cures ulcerated gums.
  5. Mezereum: Mezereum purifies dental health from its very roots. It reduces toothache from spreading and stalls the decay at the very roots. Mezereum soothes acute sensitivity and a constant ringing sensation in the temples and the ears of the patient.
  6. Chamomilla: Chamomilla is a very beneficial natural Homeopathic medicine for toothache when the patient turns irritable, mad and wild with severe tooth pain. The pain in teeth is totally unbearable. Mental agitation with toothache calls for the use of Chamomilla. 
  7. Plantago, Spigelia and Magnesium Phos: For the pain in teeth that extends to ear, natural Homeopathic medicine Plantago is the appropriate remedy. For the neuralgic pain in face on right side due to toothache, Homeopathic medicine Magnesium Phos is the best medicine. And to deal with nerve pain extending from teeth to left side of face, Spigelia is the ideal Homeopathic remedy.

There are various other drugs also which are of immense benefit in toothache and also for the cutting of wisdom tooth. Well, the overall constitution plays a major role in deciding upon the remedy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.
