Hi there are various reasons for bleeding gums like poor oral hygiene, vitamin deficiency, physical injury to gums, hormonal changes, medications etc. You have to visit a dentist for professional cleaning and check-up to know the exact cause and solution of your problem.

We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner.

It can be because of temporimandibular joint dysfunction. It's clicking temporimandibular joint. Don't open your mouth too wide. Don't eat in hurry. Avoid hard eatables. Avoid stress. If you have pain consult Dentist or TMJOINT specialist.

I consult with the dentist and he suggests me to take a2z vitamin capsules 1 everyday until the problem resolved. My question is what is the problem with me and how can i recover from it?

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath. More than the toothpaste it is the correct brushing technique which is important.

Hello lybrate-user, dry socket is related to the difficulty during extraction and not just the antibiotic. It depends on the position of the tooth to be removed. A difficult tooth takes more time. Dry socket rarely happens and does occur only when the extraction procedure takes too long.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

Or drugs etc. And also because of wrong brushing technique. We can only say exactly when we have an access of your teeth we have various treatments in dentistry to make teeth whiter.

You can apply ultradent gel but for now avoid chemical mouthwash as it can irritate the raw area and aggravate pain perception. You can rinse with warm saline water multiple times till the extracted area heals. If sutures are placed in the extracted are you can reduce saline rinse otherwise follow these instructions.

For cavities you have to go for filling of teeth from dentist. Few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums.
