How to have a healthy teeth.
Limit sugary foods and drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Avoid over-brushing. You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste. Avoid grinding your teeth. Get regular checkups.

An impacted tooth is a tooth that is positioned against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue so that it is unlikely to fully erupt through the gums to reach its normal position in the mouth. Wisdom teeth (third molars) the wisdom teeth or third molars are the last to come through, right at the back. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Although sometimes they appear many years later. Nowadays people often have jaws that are too small for all 32 teeth - 28 is often the most we have room for.

- 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 or hydrogen peroxide 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. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

There is no relation between chest and teeth. But pain in broken tooth is because of exposed pulp or sensitivity. Visit dentist for filling.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: - practice good oral hygiene. - Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. - Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. - Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. - Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. - See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. - Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. - Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Dear madam, although you do all the right things to take care of your teeth and gums but the real question is and I hope that you are doing it right! bad odour or halitosis as we dentist know it is a multifactorial phenomenon! it can arise due to problems in teeth, or problems in gums or problem with your digestive system. Improper brushing although you might be doing it twice, thrice or any number of times will not help in effectively removing plaque from the teeth if it is not done the right way and as time goes by plaque turns into a hard mass called calculus! at this stage no amount of brushing can remove the calculus and it can only be removed by a professional oral scaling and prophylaxis procedure. I request you to see your dentist and allow him to evaluate the situation and he could suggest to you about what exactly the problem is and will also give you treatment options and advice on how you could effectively brush and take care of oral hygiene in a better way!
