Hii lybrate-user, black discoloration of teeth is a sign of tooth decay/caries. This will not go with routine brushing. You need to visit a dentist to get it treated. Dentist will remove the decay and fill the cavity.

There is sometime swelling in my teeth. What is the reason for that.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
There are a lot of reasons for a swelling to occur 1. If there is a decay and its deep, it can cause a swelling at the roots due to root canal infection 2. It could be because of poor oral hygiene. 3. Infection of the gums 4. If in the wisdom tooth region, i. E. Is the last molar tooth region, it could be because of a the tooth being stuck with no space for eruption. An examination by your dentist can help in zeroing in on the problem.

Hi This is called as halitosis. It can be due to gum related problems such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Get a dental evaluation. For the time being use chlorhexidine mouth washes before and after every meal.

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.

Sometimes the filling remains a bit high. So while chewing when teeth come in contact. You feel pain. Or otherwise if the filling is very near to the tooth inner structure we call it pulp. Then also you may get pain. X ray will reveal the truth. Go back to your dentist n get it checked properly if it is high. The dentist will trim it off or otherwise will do the x ray n will do the treatment accordingly. For time being if pain is not bearable. Take one painkiller like. Brufen. Take care.

Bad breath has many causes. Usually it happens because of entrapment of food in tooth crevices. So we need to discuss your problem. And find the cause and then we can start your treatment. As a preventive measure you can start rinsing everytime after meal. And using a mouthwash and effective toothpaste.

Sensitivity in teeth. Please help.

Hi, Sensitivity in teeth is a major problem that the people are facing these days especially in winters. You can use a sensitive toothpaste by applying it directly on all your teeth with your finger (esp the ones which are more sensitive), leave it for five minutes & then brush with the same. But knowing the cause of sensitivity is very important. You should consult your dentist for any cuts or abrasions onto the tooth surface which are leading to sensitivity.

Bleeding may be due to gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling will help you in this regard. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash three times a day after each meal. Use crest toothpaste.

Dentist,
My tooth is paining what I do?
Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

- 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. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - 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.

Get yourself checked by dentist for evaluation of space available for eruption of wisdom teeth. Get and xray done to check whether there is any hindrance in path of eruption. You also need to start antibiotic and analgesic therapy for subsiding the pain. Do warm water rinses with a pinch of salt 3-4 times daily.
