During Teething( when tooth is coming out) its common to have irritation in the gumpads.. Children usually put their fingers or other household things into their mouth, which can cause gastric irritation if its not clean.. Allow d child to bite on hard n clean vegetable or fruit( preferably cold) it helps the teeth to come out soon..

9 Tips to Look After Your Teeth

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Brush at least twice a day. The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

- Use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

- Brush thoroughly. Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.

- Floss your teeth daily. Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.

- Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be 'eaten'right down to the gum.

- Limit sugary foods. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

- Protect your teeth from injury. Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.

- Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.

- Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

- See your dentist for regular check-ups. You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.

If your upper front teeth are placed outside or are long, jaw will be visible during smiling. We call it a gummy smile. There is a stretching exercise of upper lip but it will be of help only when the upper lip is short. See an orthodontist so that the exact cause can be determined and then treatment done. Regards.

Hello lybrate-user, good news is age is not a bar for orthodontic treatment, I totally understand your concern, we have an option of treating our patients with invisalign (aligner) nowadays. Which is totally transparent and invisible you can carry out your day to day life without any discomfort. When the aligners are installed for the first time you may feel little discomfort since it applies pressure on your teeth but you will be alright in few hours. Finally the greatest advantage is you can see your post treatment results even before starting your treatment.

Left side of the chin is more elongated, muscles of the left side can be easily moved but not of the right side and the lower teeth are towards the right ie the chin is towards the right side.

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.

Generally after root canal one needs to wait for minimum 10 days. The pain will subside. With time. Or take brufen 200 mg twice daily for three days.

•A change in taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

Teeth whitening if done by professional teeth whitening in clinic or by home bleaching can be maintained by whitening toothpaste satisfactorily. If you are not having any anti social oral habit or habit of taking excessive tea or coffee. Still if you wish to go for, I would suggest Glodent toothpaste personally experienced.

Try flossing the teeth where you can see bleeding. Also try brushing after meals. Rinse with warm salt water 4-5 times a day too.

Everyone's system works differently. Its ok if you can't digest spicy food. As such with in digestion n mouth ulcers, you should avoid spicy n oilly foods. Increase your intake of raw fruit and vegetables. Also drink more water. If necessary, start taking vitamin supplements.

Or any other medication?
Dear lybrate-user you are suffering from halitosis means there is lack of maintenance of your oral hygiene or you have bad digestion, remedies like mouthwashes and breath mints are enough to mask their chronic halitosis, halitosis causing bacteria on the back of the tongue. People with chronic halitosis have large amounts of volatile sulfur compounds produced from the breakdown of proteins by bacteria in the mouth. As one of the leading halitosis causes, common halitosis treatment options since chronic halitosis causes severe repercussions, suffers are anxious to find a halitosis cure. Tooth brushes and mouthwash - do not solve the problem. Toothbrushes can't reach the back of the tongue where the bacterial causes of halitosis reside; so although brushing plays an important role in oral hygiene, it is not a halitosis cure. Since mouthwashes only temporarily mask and do not eliminate the odor-causing bacteria, they too are not an effective chronic halitosis treatment. Tongue scraping, together with proper oral hygiene is the most effective" common" treatment against the causes of halitosis. Yet, the underlying halitosis causes remain: finally a halitosis cure finding a halitosis cure. A safe germicide called chlorine dioxide was found highly effective.
