Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •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.

You can take a pain killer for temporary relief. If pain is severe, you might need antibiotics too. Do warm salt water gargling to keep the area free of infection.

Bleeding nose and gums altogether uncommonly related unless he has some bleeding disorder. If blood parameters are in normal range the bleeding gums is commonly due to deposits of food debris around gums. Just medications wont help much.

May be your gums got inflamed due to plaque, calculus or any injury. If plaque or calculus is there you need to go for scaling and need to improve your oral prophylaxis. Consult dentist.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

My son is 4 years old . He has cavity in his jaw what should I do ?

As he is just 4 years old, you should make it a point to see if he brushes his teeth properly. Remember he should brush his teeth after sticky foodstuffs such as chocolates. Inculcate the habit of toothbrushing at night, before going to bed. The dental cavity can be treated by a filling or RCT depending on the extent & related pain if any. So visit a dentist for the needful. But always remember - "Prevention is better than cure" Regards.

Sir, you need to contact dentist and undergo for scaling (deep cleaning) of the teeth. Then you need to gargle yours mouth daily twice with mouthwash only after you undergo scaling. Mouthwash you need to do after breakfast as well as after dinner and should not brush or eat food after using mouthwash atleast for one hour.

Dear lybrate user, toothpastes contribute little to changing the natural color of teeth. Stained or yellow teeth can be whitened using other treatment options like bleaching, zoom whitening etc. You can also get professional cleaning/scaling of teeth done to get rid of the extrinsic stains. Avoid consuming excess tea & coffee (especially black tea and coffee).

Always rinse your tooth brush thoroughly after brushing, and allow it to air-dry before using it again.

Hi, just get your teeth cleaned by a dentist that will solve most of your problems. Cleaning or oral prophylaxis is not very expensive.
