Vigorous brushing with a hard bristled toothbrush can lead to gums becoming weak and result in sensitivity. I recommend to use ultra-soft toothbrush to avoid trauma from faulty brushing.Visit your dentist and learn the proper brushing techniques.

You do not try it in excess or else your tooth enamel get permanent damage. You can use normal toothbrush and colgate white paste for next 3 months. You can wait for dentist visit. Let him do the best for you. THANK you.

Was an x-ray taken for the tooth in question. Was any treatment option discussed with you. You have to discuss what exactly was discussed between you & the dentist in question, then only we can come to a conclusion regarding your tooth problems.

Size of gums is different in upper and lower teeth. So lower teeth appear like receding. No need to worry. Visit the nearby dentist for regular check up.

Hii lybrate-user. Yellowish stain on tooth cannot be removed by tooth paste. You need to visit a dentist for scaling (professional cleaning).

Yellow scars recently gained, most likely bcos of improper brushing, excessive intake of tea or tooth coloring materials or foods. So, lessen them if so. Tooth cleaning is the one you can even go in for bleaching of tooth. At home you can even try tooth whitening gels as per instructions.

We need more investigations 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.

It can lead to some problem but its always better if he spits, use a very small amount of toothpaste 1/4th - 1/2 the size of a pea, not more. The kid toothpaste are specially designed with reduced fluoride contents to prevent any problems with ingestion of the paste, but its always better if you put him to the habit of spitting.
