What is Gingivitis? Signs and Symptoms
What is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis — an inflammation of the gums — is the initial stage of gum disease and the easiest to treat. The direct cause of gingivitis is plaque - the soft, sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms constantly on the teeth and gums.

If the plaque is not removed by daily brushing and flossing, it produces toxins (poisons) that can irritate the gum tissue, causing gingivitis. At this early stage in gum disease, damage can be reversed, since the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place are not yet affected. Left untreated, however, gingivitis can become periodontitis and cause permanent damage to your teeth and jaw.

Early stage of GingivitisGingivitis.
How do I Know if I Have Gingivitis?
Classic signs and symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen, tender gums that may bleed when you brush. Another sign of gum disease is gums that have receded or pulled away from your teeth, giving your teeth an elongated appearance. Gum disease can cause pockets to form between the teeth and gums, where plaque and food debris collect. Some people may experience recurring bad breath or a bad taste in their mouth, even if the disease is not advanced.

How can I Prevent Gingivitis?
Good oral hygiene is essential. Professional cleanings are also extremely important because once plaque has hardened and built up, or become tartar, only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove it.

You can help stop gingivitis before it develops by:

Proper brushing and flossing to remove plaque and debris and control tartar buildup
Eating right to ensure proper nutrition for your jawbone and teeth
Avoiding cigarettes and other forms of tobacco
Scheduling regular checkups with your dentist

The best way to treat bad breath (halitosis) is to instill patients with good oral hygiene practices.The common methods used include tongue brushing, tongue scraping, and chewing gum. Gentle but effective deep tongue cleaning should be an important daily routine. Other methods to reduce halitosis (bad breath) include -
Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash
Cleaning the tongue surface twice daily
Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue
Chewing gum
Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting
Periodic visits to DENTIST

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. Please don't brush your teeth for 30 minutes as this will remove enamel from your teeth and you may have sensitivity problems later.

Fruits and vegetables which require continous biting like apples, carrots and corn should be avoided as it can become quite difficult while the braces are on.

Its called fluorosis, in this situation, enamel gets mottled, there are plenty of solutions, it can be masked with a composite laminate(if its superficial),or you can proceed with veneers

Get yourself checked. If it is sensitivity associated then you require professional cleaning by dentist. If cavity is there then you need to go for filling or root canal treatment depending upon severity.

Dear bleeding from gums usually is due to tartar / plaque deposition on teeth. Brush twice a day, rinse vigorously after every meal and get a professional cleaning of your teeth done. This should resolve your problem.

hii complete absence of saliva is not a normal thing,along with thirst u may face stickiness, difficulty in chewing food and stuff, and even some kind of buring too. later stages definately gonna pose caries problems as well. so, better for now, icrease the water intake, sialogouges, try to wet ur oral cavity every hr,chewng chewng gums may help. keep a healthy chek if ur dietary intake is proper. try for fwe days, if still issue remained concern the nearby clinic asap.

You can go, age is not the factor.Your bone support and the condition of the gum is what is going to matter.If you have a good support of the teeth teeth treatment result will be better. Price and treatment time will depend on the condition you have.

There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.
