I have very serious problem of teeth I am 23 years old Gums are leaving the teeth. Blooding from the teeth. please help.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
- 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.

I cannot comment about the cost of the treatment but yes get an Xray done of the broken tooth, it may be possible to save it with a root canal filling plus crown of the broken tooth.

My mother feels pain n burning in the gums, at night while sleeping the pus comes out. The mouth is always dry. What is the reason and cure. Is there any permanent cure or any home remedy? Please help.

1) your mother might have xerostomia (dryness of mouth). 2) get her checked up by a general physician for diabetes mellitus and periodontologist for periodontal disease. 3) there is permanent cure for this condition and depending on physical examination the doctor can advise for appropriate diet, gum surgery and control of diabetes mellitus.

Dr. There is a great cavity in my teeth n I am trouble n I want to know some ideas to finish the cavity. Is there some ideas which can finish my cavity at home.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
•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.

Use of oil pulling

BDS
Dentist, Thanjavur
Oil pulling, a popular folk remedy can be useful for whiter teeth and as a flossing agent. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. It lubricates the gums and provides that extra shine to your teeth.

When the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed, septic or lifeless, one needs to go through the root canal treatment.

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

The corner of my teeth have became brown. Probably due to chewing tobaco. How to clean them fast?

Not all tobacco stains can be removed by scaling alone. You may need bleaching to get rid of internal stains.

I broke my tooth (Front tooth). I lost half part of it. I know I does not grow. I heard of tooth implant. How much does it cost? Is there any other process to come over?

BDS
Dentist, Siliguri
No need of tooth implant if the root of the tooth is firmly attached to the bone or any fracture in the root. Visit a dentist, via x-ray that will be confirmed. If the root is fine, go for rct with post and core build up and placed a crown above that. Your tooth will look same as what it was, also the costing will be lesser than implant and also for implants 3 months treatment time period is needed and for rct with crown (post) it will take maximum 3-5 days.

Smoking or consuming smokeless tobacco is very harmful for your teeth. It can lead to various oral diseases like oral cancer, gingivitis, periodontists and tooth decay.

I have this mouth ulcers problem every month I suffer with dat problem can you please suggest me how can I avoid getting them?

MD - Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
General Physician, Malda
Unfortunately there is still no clear cut reason established for recurrent mouth ulcers. It can be due to nutrition deficiency, poor oral hygiene, bad dental condition, hormonal or genetic. All you need to do is to maintain proper oral hygiene and take nutritious foos with antioxidant property like fruits and green leafy vegetables. You can use ointment kenacort for relief during ulcer eruption.

I have an teeth cavity please give me some home made remedies for whitening teeth and also preventive measures.

BDS
Dentist, Vadodara
Cavities in teeth can't be treated at home. You have to get it filled with or without root canal treatment depending on the extent of decay. For whitening teeth, go for scaling and polishing. Teeth prevention is very simple. Brush your teeth twice daily and also use mouthwash. Clean your mouth with forcefully gargling of water after you eat or drink anything. Limit your intake of food to 4-5 time a day. Reduce intake of sweet and sticky foods.
