How can I prevent bad breath and yellow teeth ?i gargle salt and water but it does not help in any kind.

How can I prevent bad breath and yellow teeth ?i gargle salt and water but it does not help in any kind.
Dear Lybrateuser, - Take following measures to prevent bad breath: - brush your teeth twice a day after meals, do flossing once a day, clean back of the tongue with a tongue cleaner once a day, do Listerine mouth gargles once a day - avoid fried, spicy & junk foods, also restrict tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, have plenty of oral fluids including 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration as dryness of mouth is one of the important causes of bad odour, also you can chew a sugarless gum to keep mouth moist, also regular exercise leads to good digestion as sometimes poor digestion can cause foul odour - get check up done by a dentist to rule out any dental caries or plaque formation or gap between teeth where food gets stuck, also to fond cause of yellow teeth.

How to give up chewing tobacco and pan masala. My friend was addicted and the dentist prescribed some chewing gum (not the ones available in any drugstore like nulife). The candy was blue filled in jelly like and each cost around Rs43. Accidentally I forgot the name and lost contact of her as well. She gave up everything after ten days. She was asked to chew just two gums per day. Could you please help me if you could suggest me the name of that particular gum. Thank you.

There is no quick fix or standard method of quitting smoking. However, there are several effective methods and treatments; it is up to each individual to find the one that suits them best. The "no-smoking contract" set a quit date. If it seems easier to you, you can set a quitting 'period' instead. The smoker's diary: many smokers have told us that writing a journal opened their eyes to a habit (smoking) that they thought they knew. Become a forum user and support and encourage each other. Get busy with friend who loves you and does not smoke. NICOTINE CHEWING GUM How to use nicotine gum You can take it throughout the day, or only when you are tormented by the urge to smoke. Because of its flexibility, it is especially indicated for irregular smokers. Take at least 10 pieces per day. If you feel the urge to smoke, use more gum or use either a patch or a nicotine inhaler at the same time. If you smoke fewer than 20 cigarettes per day, you can save money, cut a 4 mg chewing in 2 and use 1/2 piece at a time. Duration of treatment: From 8 weeks to 3 months. Important: For the best results, follow these chewing instructions: Slowly chew the gum: the taste appears After about 10 chews, take a pause by wedging the gum between the cheek and gum Wait until the taste is attenuated Again slowly chew the gum (gum = 30 minutes) Tips from smoking cessation specialist doctors Avoid drinking coffee or fruit juice (acid) before and while using the gum, as these drinks reduce its effectiveness. Chewing the gum too quickly releases too much nicotine, a tangy taste, a decrease in the effectiveness of the gum, hiccups, or stomach ache. Do not stop treatment prematurely as this will decrease your chances of success.

Thanks for your query. The pain in the tooth can be because of the tooth infection secondary to decay. Nothing to worry you need to take a course of antibiotics and analgesics to reduce infection and later get the tooth treated with root canal treatment or extraction. Take care.

I often get mouth ulcers. I am dibetic but under control by tablets only. Undergone angioplasty in march 2016. Now fine.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need hexigel ointment until then. You may consult me in person too. 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.

Major cause are poor oral hygiene, digestion problem like constipation, vitamin deficiency or any sharp tooth structure irritating oral mucosa. Its important to find out the cause of ulcer to decide the treatment. Take care of your oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse after each meal. Take zevit tabs once daily for 15 days. Drink plenty of water and fibrous food.

Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations • institute topical antifungal therapy if fungal plaques noticed Mouth sores are common and rarely Cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist.

•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.
