Massaging your gums daily with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth will increase the blood activation and will keep your gums healthy and safe.

I have space in my teeth due to extraction so what option do I choose bridge or implant?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Since you are on medication for vit d deficiency, implant is not the best option. Bridge is a better option as there will not be any involvement of bone directly.

Root canal teeth are also more brittle, and generally back teeth need a crown after a root canal so the tooth will not break.

I'm a 19 year old male. It's been almost 4 years since I visited a dentist and I'm ashamed about it. I feel terribly afraid to visit a dentist due to the fear of pain and needle phobia that i have. I finally found that there was something called sedative dentistry and I have learnt more about it on the internet. This gave me a little hope and looking forward to get treated. Vulnerable and urgently in need of help.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Yes there is. But its used for pedo(small childrens) in most of the cases or in case of a surgical procedure in case of adults. For small procedures like simple root canal treatments or simple extractions there is no need for sedation.Visit your dentist he will explain you the procedure and will guide you to over come your fear. Nowadays due to advance technology its not painful as it was years back. You make take diazipam before treatment . It will help you to over come your anxiety.

Rinsing with water after every meal is very important for maintaining a good oral health. .
Snacking and intake of carbonated drinks and packed fruit juices have high acid content.... if you cannot stay away from them
Then brush after every meal..

Oral irrigators are used as an aid for people with braces or fixed partial dentures, they should not replace regular brushing or flossing. But they do come in handy when you have spaces in between your teeth which can not be cleaned by other inter-dental aids.

I am 26 year old girl, right side wisdom tooth surgery done with stitches on 2014 December, 10 months passed still I am not able to eat even soft items, and left side upper tooth problem have since 5-6 months when ever I chew food when up and down tooth get connect while chewing that time suddenly get pain like stone are there in food otherwise there is no pain. So many doctors I visited but all doctors says everything is fine there is nothing x-ray also done. I am not able to chew both side, right side wisdom surgery done left side while chewing suddenly I stop eating like stone in food. Please guide me what should I do?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Noida
I think you might have problem on both side, during surgery of wisdom tooth if roots of second molar and wisdom crown are very close, trauma can hamper blood supply of second molar (adjacent tooth), pulp of this tooth can become dead (goes undetectable in x ray, vitality of tooth needs to be checked) and that can cause pain, sensitivity to hot can be a prominent feature. On right side you might have some problem which needs to be checked. If everything is fine then biting pattern of teeth are to be checked, as this can also cause problem while chewing.

Hello, bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits or food lodgement between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. It could also be because of cold, acidity, stomach problems, not drinking enough water, not eating or fasting for long intervals. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.

Menthol: this is a main ingradient in tonics and syrups. Gargling of this tincture reduces bad breath.

Sir mera teeth sada huwa hai ek aur kuch teeth sad rahe hain aap koi dawa ya toothpaste ka name bata sakte hain.
All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

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.

Oral ulcers take about a week to heal. Apply dologel ct to the affected area and wait it out. If not healed contact me again. There might be something else if the ulcer is not healing. Take multi vitamin capsule twice daily in between like cobadex.
