Yellow teeth can be due to various reasons, diagosis is important. You must atleast once go to a dentist to rule it out. Any ways it can b plaque or stains for which scaling and polishing is necessary. Use soft toothbrush. Brush twice daily. You can use whitening toothpaste. There are many brand availabe in market. Stop tobacco chewing or smoking habbit if any.

I have a long tooth, misplaced, is filing possible in a short time? If Yes, the cost can assess how much?

MDS, BDS

The procedure you want would be undertaken depending on the placement of the tooth. Because unnecessary grinding of tooth can lead to sensitivity. Please visit a dentist and get a radiograph done.

The Silent Signs of Gum Disease

MDS , BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The Silent Signs of Gum Disease

Overall oral health consists of health of both the soft and the hard tissues in the mouth. While teeth are the hard tissues, the soft tissues include the lips, tongue, cheek, palate, and most importantly the gums. The gums or the periodontium (perio - around, dont - tooth) surrounds the tooth and provides nutritional support and structural support with its connective tissue. The gums are the unsung heroes in maintaining a healthy set of teeth.

It is common observation that dental decay is more attended to than gum disease.  The symptoms associated with decay, be it discoloration, food lodgment, sensitivity, and sometimes pain are a lot more demanding.

The bad news is that the same bacteria have a harmful effect on the gums too. The good news is that gum disease also (like tooth decay), takes time to develop. The bacteria in the mouth and the plaque are the main initiators of gum disease too. It is more innocuous and not immediately attended to, sometime even gets ignored for years until it become severe and mandates treatment. Certain medical conditions like pregnancy, diabetes, stroke, etc., lead to greater severity of the gum disease.

Chronic gum or periodontal disease, if left untreated, can even lead to multiple tooth loss and require dentures much earlier than required. It is not difficult to diagnose gum disease as the symptoms are quite easy to identify, including

  • Red, swollen, or painful gums:  As with any infection, redness and swelling and pain are the first symptoms of gum disease too.
  • Spontaneous bleeding of gums: The gums can look spongy and puffed and can sometimes bleed without even a touch
  • Chronic bad breath: The bacteria are constantly acting on the food debris to produce acid, leading to a bad breath (halitosis)
  • Pressure on the gums can produce pus: Cumulative infection can lead to gingival abscess
  • Bad taste in the mouth: If there is an abscess, it will discharge pus into the mouth, leading to this metallic taste
  • Gingival recession, where the tooth appears to have grown longer. The gum line recedes from its original place, exposing more of the tooth.  This also causes greater sensitivity, especially to hot or cold foods
  • Slight loosening of the teeth (in severe cases) as the fibers loosen their hold around the tooth.
  • Painful chewing, it puts extra pressure on the fibers of the periodontium.

Some people are more prone for gum disease than others. The risk factors include smoking, increased 
female hormones, and chronic illnesses like diabetes and cancer.

Management: Regular visits to the dentist can help identify these at an early stage and manage both progression and severity. Additionally, managing risk factors like smoking and chronic illnesses also is helpful.

I am 24 year old male having protruded teeth. As teeth were protruded, I was not able to close mouth normally, So I forced my lips to close which caused my lips portion to increase, I guess. So now I have fuller lips and I am planning to have braces. Is there will be any noticeable change in lips portion. Will it get smaller thinner?

Oil pulling, a popular folk remedy can be useful for whiter teeth and as a flossing agent. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. It lubricates the gums and provides that extra shine to your teeth.

I have got sensitivity problem in my teeth. What I will do? I used sensodine but there is no relief.

PERIODONTIST, B.D.S.
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Sensitivity of teeth is mostly due to loss of outer layer of teeth (enamel) and exposure of second layer of tooth (dentin). The dentine caries all sensation of air, water, cold to the nerve of tooth. So block these dentine layer you have to use desensitizing or nerve blocking tooth paste. You can use thermoseal ra, shy- nm, sensoform and also sensodyne. You have to use these pastes by applying it on your tooth surface for 5-7 minutes, after that you can brush with the same tooth paste. It takes time to recover this condition but if you make an effort nothing is impossible.

Dentist,
Can Adults wear braces too?
Braces aren't just for teenagers – it’s never too late to improve your dental health and beautify your smile. About 1 million Americans over the age of 18 wear braces. Your Orthodontist can help you determine if orthodontic treatment is the right option for you. You can also request an evaluation and receive treatment from an orthodontist, a specialist in diagnosing, preventing and correcting malocclusions.

I suffer from chronic bad breath and my oral hygiene skills are fantastic. What should I do? PLease tell me.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Daer clarence you are having chronic bad breath even after having good oral hygiene smell from mouth can be due to indigestion and poor oral hygiene. Smell can be prevented by proper cleaning of teeth and maintaining oral hygiene. Take tab celin 500 once a day for one week. Kindly visit dental surgeon for checkup and prowr cleaning of teeth. Use hydrogen per oxide for gargles. Keep mouth healthy and free from smell. Best way is cleaning and polishing of teeth and maintenance of oral hygiene. Use colgate tooth paste and listerin mouth wash.

My tooth was broken and it root was is remained now after few month it was decayed from the root of the tooth it years from the root so now wh at to do.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.
