Cause for tooth decay ?

BDS
Dentist,
Main cause of tooth decay is sticky carbohydrates like chocolates, bread, snacks, sweets, ice cream, fast foods etc which stick to teeth and gaps between teeth together with improper brushing habits and techniques. It also depends on frequency with which these carbs are consumed. Bacteria in oral cavity convert these carbs into acids which eventually de-calcifies teeth resulting in decay. Hope this helps.

The life of toothbrush is nearly three months. The toothbrush doesn't clean properly after its bristles wears off . Please change toothbrush regularly for proper oral hygiene.

Before consulting gastroenterologist you should first visit a dentist for evaluation of your oral hygiene whether bad odor from mouth is due to any tartar deposits, decayed teeth, gum disease or you simply don't brush your tongue while brushing your teeth. If you have tartar deposits those will not go away just with brush rather you will need professional cleaning of your teeth to be done in dental office. Also don't forget to brush your teeth with a soft toothbrush with gentle pressure on teeth and gums.

Sensitive teeth and gums can be difficult to endure on a daily basis, because foods you eat and liquids you drink can cause you pain. By chewing on a guava leaf twice a day, you can relieve gum and tooth sensitivity, bleeding gums or mouth sores.
Not only do guava leaves relieve pain in the mouth, but a guava leaf can be ground up and used as a toothpaste to relieve sensitivity, as well as cure bad breath associated with gingivitis.

If its a gum pain you should get your teeth cleaned by a professional. And if it a tooth pain you should either go for rct or extraction.

My breath smell very bad what to do.

PGPPH, BDS
Dentist,
Hi,bad breath, also known as halitosis, is breath that has an unpleasant odor. This odor can strike periodically or be persistent, depending on the cause. In many people, the millions of bacteria that live in the mouth (particularly on the back of the tongue) are the primary causes of bad breath. The mouth's warm, moist conditions make an ideal environment for these bacteria to grow. Most bad breath is caused by something in the mouth. Some types of bad breath, such as" morning mouth" are considered to be fairly normal, and they usually are not health concerns. The" morning mouth" type of bad breath occurs because the saliva that regularly washes away decaying food and odors during the daytime diminishes at night while you sleep. Your mouth becomes dry, and dead cells adhere to your tongue and to the inside of your cheeks. Bacteria use these cells for food and expel compounds that have a foul odor. In addition, bad breath can be caused by the following: poor dental hygiene? infrequent or improper brushing and flossing can leave food particles to decay inside the mouth. Infections in the mouth? periodontal (gum) disease respiratory tract infections? throat infections, sinus infections, lung infections external agents? garlic, onions, coffee, cigarette smoking, chewing tobacco dry mouth (xerostomia)? this can be caused by salivary gland problems, medications or by" mouth breathing" systemic illnesses? diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, lung disease, sinus disease, reflux disease and others psychiatric illness? some people may perceive that they have bad breath, but it is not noticed by oral-health-care professionals or others. This is referred to as" pseudohalitosis"

Even when one brushes the teeth twice a day and rinses the mouth after every food, whats the reason for cavity?

Sir, its necessary that when you brush your teeth food debris get removed. There is no fun of brushing if debris are still there. So important is right techniques as wrong method to brush your may also lead to teeth damage.

Dentist,
I have cough when I split today it comes out big big blood clots from the mouth.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening desensitizing. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

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.
