Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

Hello, white layer on teeth could be plaque. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. He/she will teach you the proper maintenance. Brush twice a day. Night brushing is important. Floss regularly, rinse after every meal. For more whiter teeth you can go for bleaching or whitening.

First get cleaning and polishing of the teeth. If still you feel that they are yellow, you can do teeth whitening / bleaching. It is safe. Now a days even home kits are available. But please do any whitening procedure under dentist supervision. A drawback of this procedure may however be an increase in sensitivity of the teeth.

Hello. Sudden gum pain can be caused if something sharp had pricked on your gums. If not it can be due to pocket ie food lodgment in gums. You need scaling and local drug delivery to that particular gum region.

How much cost occurred for this aligners treatment & how much time required for aligners treatment?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
The average cost of ClearCorrect Full treatment is approximately $4,000 to $5,500. Of course, treatment costs will vary depending on your specific needs. The cost of ClearCorrect is similar to the cost of Invisalign. Ask your dentist about whether your dental insurance provides assistance for ClearCorrect costs.

Hello lybrate-user. Your complaint is not very clear. But I think you have ulcers in your mouth which is giving you pain. I prescribe kenacort ointment 0.1% to apply over the ulcers thrice a day. It will slowly heal up and you can eat properly. And you r having vit b deficiency in your food that also cause these ulcers in mouth. You need to take multivitamin tablets also. Thank you.

I am 22 years old girl. I have bleeding gums whenever I wake up from the sleep even it is half an hour or more. Suggest me ways to reduce it.

MDS - Periodontics, BDS
Dentist, Amravati
Dear lybrate-user, bleeding gums usually indicates inflammation of gums which is caused due to deposition of plaque and tartar over your teeth. At your age, harmonal factor too can play a role in gums bleeding but it just aggravates the bleeding due to plaque. You need to professionally remove plaque and tartar i. E. Cleaning of teeth aka scaling. After this, you may seek gynecological advise if seem necessary.

Chronic Bad Breath - Causes and Management

Chronic Bad Breath - Causes and Management

One thing that can put away talking to someone very interesting is bad breath. And it is not an uncommon problem. While most just try to use mouth wash and chewing gums to keep it away, it is important to note that bad breath can be a sign of underlying causes, both in the mouth and the body as a whole.  

Identifying the reason can help in early diagnosis and prompt treatment of the actual disease condition.

There could be oral and general causes for bad breath or halitosis as it is medically called.  Food habits and other lifestyle habits including smoking can also lead to bad breath.

Oral causes:

  • Presence of food debris in a moist environment (saliva) is ideal for the oral bacteria to act on the food particles and break them down. This causes a bad breath, when it leads to plaque formation and it then calcifies into a hardened substance called calculus.  Plaque and calculus are the main ingredients for tooth decay and periodontal disease.
  • Severe tooth decay leads to bad breath as does periodontal infections. In severe cases, there could even be abscess formation in the root area of the tooth with pus formation 
  • Unclean dentures are another source of halitosis. There could be food lodged in between teeth or the undersurface of the denture, leading to bad breath.
  • Dry mouth or xerostomia - Certain diseases and drugs can lead to dry mouth with reduced amounts of saliva.  Saliva has a natural flushing effect on the bacteria, and in its absence, the bacteria thrive, leading to a bad odour.

General health:  Chronic diseases like gastroesophageal reflux disease, digestive disorders, liver disorders, cancer, and diabetes can lead to bad breath. 

Others:

  • Long-term smoking and/or chewing tobacco and alcohol are also reasons for bad breath.
  • Crash diets:  People on low-carb diets can have a bad breath, owing to burning of the fat and producing ketones, which have a strong smell.
  • Medications: Nitrates to reduce angina, chemotherapy agents for cancer, phenothiazines for anxiety can all lead to bad breath. They reduce saliva and/or release chemicals causing bad breath.

Management:  The first step in managing halitosis is to nail the cause down, which makes it easier to treat.

  • Start with oral hygiene check, and if there is decay or gum disease, consider restorations and cleaning.
  • Mouth rinses can be used in the maintenance phase.
  • Cessation of tobacco use should be considered.
  • General health conditions like GERD should be managed
  • Artificial saliva in cases of xerostomia
  • Alternative medications if they are causing the bad breath

Oral breath is definitely embarrassing but can be managed very easily.

I have yellowish on my teeth so wht can I do to remove dat yellowish from my teeth.
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Tooth pastes are just an additive to your oral hygiene measures. Rinse thoroughly after every meal. Bad smell can be for many other reasons other than your oral cavity e. G. Sinusitis, gastric disturbances, eating habits. Visit your dentist now and get it solved.

Insert the fingers of your hand in your mouth if it is below three fingers. It is very serious. Please visit a dentist and ask for corticosteroids injection therapy. Along with that you will need some exercises advised.

You may need fixed or removable retainers after orthodontic treatment for maintenance. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.
