Hello Lybrate user, toothpaste acts as foaming agent while brushing, the important role is that of brush. So if you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy brush twice daily for at least 4- 5 minutes and that too with proper brushing technique. Toothpaste plays secondary role and any toothpaste available in market works fine. Try not to use tooth powder. Hope this helps.

This is called plaque. It accumulates when you don't clean your mouth after eating or drinking anything. Go for professional scaling and polishing of teeth. Than maintain it by brushing twice daily. Forcefully gargle with water after you eat or drink anything.

If its just an external staining then it can be removed by stain remover by a dentist. I can be pit caries (decay) also which has to be drilled and filled with an appropriate material.

Try to find out what is causing the ulcers. Is this happening again and again? is this related to your monthly periods? are you always biting your cheek or lip? did you bite your tongue accidently? do you have sharp, pointed teeth near the ulcers? are you under some stress? for relief of pain, just apply plain glycerin liquid three times a day and let it remain n contact with the ulcer by closing your mouth, not swallowing for at least 30 seconds after applying it.

U need to visit a dentist at the earliest. Get an x ray done n get the damage evaluated. If the teeth damage is minimal, tooth coloured filling ll b sufficient. If the damage involves the teeth pulp area, rct n capping'll b done n if reqd, post n core build up'll b done. If the fracture lines extend into the root portion of your teeth n cannot n restored, they could b extracted following which they'll b replaced with artificial teeth. Meanwhile maintain good oral hygiene n avoid chewing using your broken teeth. Use a mouthwash.

This condition of protruding lower jaw is termed as prognathism. It is also called an extended chin or habsburg jaw. The condition can be a sign of an underlying condition if it is still protruding and if it is constant then it is inherited genetic problem and surgery is the only solution-------------

Hi , you must get your tooth checked by dentist. In pregnancy, due to effect of hormones, gum becomes soft & spongy so becomes more prone to infections which ultimately leads to tooth damage. So regular brushing, flossing & dental check up is must. Strict no to home remedies. Inform your dentist about pregnancy so he can advise you" pregnancy safe" treatment.

5 Common Toothbrushing Mistakes
Brushing your teeth is one major way to prevent cavities and keep those pearly whites looking beautiful. But if you’re making one of these common toothbrushing mistakes, your teeth might not be getting all the care they need.
1. Flossing after brushing: Everyone should floss at least once per day. But if you’re flossing before you brush, you’re leaving stuff behind that could cause cavities. Even though flossing removes food and plaque that’s stuck between the teeth, it still might be hanging around in your mouth. Following two minutes of brushing with a good floss is the solution for a truly clean smile.
2. Brushing in straight lines: Brushing in straight lines is great for some parts of your teeth, but not all. For the outer surfaces of your teeth, you should be brushing in circles in order to get the best scrub possible. For the inner surfaces of your teeth, brush in up and down motions. Finally, for the tops of your big back teeth, straight lines are the way to go.
3. Not brushing long enough: You should brush at least two times per day, but after every meal is best. And each time you brush, you should do it for two to three minutes.
4. Using an old brush: Toothbrushes need to be replaced about every 3 months. If the bristles of a toothbrush are bent, then it’s past time for a new brush. Why does it matter? Bent bristles just can’t clean the teeth as well as straight bristles. It’s as simple as that.
5. Using the wrong toothpaste: First things first, make sure you’re using a fluoride toothpaste. It strengthens the teeth and prevents cavities. Second, if you’re buying toothpaste for kids, get something fruity-flavored. Kids usually don’t like minty flavors, and might put up a fight if you ask them to brush with a toothpaste they think tastes yucky. Finally, if you have sensitive teeth, get a toothpaste with potassium nitrate. It’s proven to help with tooth sensitivity, and can make it easier to eat hot or cold foods.
If you’re guilty of one or more of these toothbrushing mistakes, you’re not alone. The good news is that now you know how to brush like a pro, and that’s going to go a long way in helping you have a healthier, happier smil

I'm suffering from tooth ache and my head is paining badly please help me out with medicines or any other thing.
The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Ulcers generally take 1-2 weeks to heal completely. Recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures. It can also b due to general nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stress etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs n iron supplements if your hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.
