Hello. I have a halitosis from years ago. After I eat, the bad breath it's gone for one hour but it comes back after. None of the doctors succeed to find what I have. My tongue has something white on it. I don't have helicobacter pylori neither candida. I did the tests twice. What can be? Thank you very much.

You can opt for composite buildup for teeth. Also, veneers may be an option. If build up is small, mostly done without injections and is generally painless. Need not worry.

You are having sensitivity issues in your teeth which can be difficult to control at times, for time being use anti sensitivity toothpaste, but I doubt that without adequate diagnosis and treatment by the dentist you will get any relief.

Pregnancy and Your Dental Health

Pregnancy and Your Dental Health

Pregnancy may bring a glow to your face, but can affect your dental health quite adversely. Thus it is important to pay attention to your dental care routine and visit your dentist regularly for checkups. Most of the changes in your dental health are due to hormonal surges that occur during pregnancy.

  1. Pregnancy and plaque buildup: Pregnancy can aggravate gum diseases like gingivitis. This is caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth and is characterized by red, swollen and bleeding gums. Pregnancy gingivitis affects of majority of pregnant women. If left untreated, it can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis. The swelling of gums can also trigger the development of pregnancy tumours and non-cancerous growths. These tumours will usually subside on their own after delivery. However, if they interfere with eating or your dental care routine, your dentist may advise you to get it removed. A link has also been suggested between gingivitis and the delivery of premature babies by triggering the production of prostaglandins that induce an early delivery.
  2. What to keep in mind while visiting the dentist: Regular dental checkups are as important as your gynecological checkups. Be open with your dentist and let him know the status of your pregnancy. Dental visits are recommended in the first, second and third trimester of pregnancy. At your visit, the dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and suggest an oral care routine. Getting your teeth regularly cleaned can prevent the buildup of plaque and lower your chances of suffering from gingivitis. Regular fillings and non emergency procedures can be performed during pregnancy. However, the best time to undergo any dental procedure if you are pregnant is between the 4th and 6th month. Avoid X-rays unless in cases of emergencies when pregnant. If you need to take any form of medication or need to put under anesthesia, consult your gynecologist about the procedure. Wherever possible, try and postpone dental treatment till after delivery.
  3. Brushing while pregnant: Along with brushing your teeth regularly, it is also important to use the right toothpaste when pregnant. Choose fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes for your daily routine. Rinsing your mouth with mouthwash can also help curb morning sickness and erase its distaste from your mouth. Flossing can also help keep your teeth healthy. Along with this, include plenty of vitamin C and B12 in your diet to prevent dental problems.

Got treatment RCT means your tooth affected by caries lesion. This happens just because of lack of oral hygiene maintenance. So please brush twice daily and be sure that while brushing your brush is approaching every corner of every tooth and after brushing use mouthwash. If you are sweet lover and frequently using food containing sugar. Please rinse with water after finishing. By taking proper care you will not follow any further problem at your age.

GOOD BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR KIDS

GOOD BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR KIDS

Good brushing should take at least 2 minutes time.

1. Divide the mouth into 6 sections and take 20 secs for each section.

2. Start with the outer surfaces of the lower jaw

3. Then the inner and the biting surfaces

4. Repeat the upper jaw in the same manner. Small circular motion near gum line is most effective.

If you already have white teeth then I think you should be happy with it. No teeth are perfectly white as shown in ads. But still if you wish you can go for bleaching.

I am 45 years old female. I have pain on right side of my chin continuously. I have pain in my wish tooth also but no problem in eating and pain in that side tonsil also. I have sugar in range 140-180. Pl guide.

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The problem may not be related to your sugar levels. Sometimes, wisdom teeth (either upper or lower) can cause radiating pain and in such cases the pain can be felt all along the jaw line on that side right up to the chin. If the problem is severe, we might have to consider removing the wisdom tooth/ teeth.

Natal Teeth

Natal Teeth

What are natal teeth?

Natal teeth are teeth that are present when a baby is born. The teeth are often not fully developed and may have a weak root.

Natal teeth are not common. They are not the same as neonatal teeth that erupt in the child’s mouth during the first month of life.

What causes natal teeth?

The cause of natal teeth is unknown. But they may be more likely to occur in children with certain health problems that affect growth. This includes Sotos syndrome.

What are the symptoms of natal teeth?

Natal teeth may sometimes look like normal teeth. But they are often:

  • Small
  • Loose
  • Brown or yellow

How are natal teeth diagnosed?

Your child’s healthcare provider or dentist can often diagnose natal teeth with a physical exam of your child’s mouth. He or she may also order X-rays. An X-ray makes images of internal tissues, bones, teeth, and organs. An X-ray may show a tooth root that is not fully formed.

How are natal teeth treated?

Treatment will depend on your child’s symptoms, age, and general health. It will also depend on how severe the condition is.

Your child’s dentist or healthcare provider may decide no treatment is needed. In other cases, natal teeth may be loose because the root is not fully developed. The teeth may then be removed. This done to lower the risk of your child inhaling the tooth into his or her airways. Or the teeth may be removed if they are damaging your baby’s tongue. Another choice may be to smooth the top edges of the teeth. This prevents damage to your child's tongue.

What are possible complications of natal teeth?

Complications that may happen as a result of natal teeth are:

  • Problems with breastfeeding. This is because your baby may accidentally bite you while breastfeeding.
  • Injury to your child’s tongue
  • Possible risk of your child inhaling the tooth into his or her airway and lungs if the tooth breaks free

Key points about natal teeth

  • Natal teeth are teeth that are present when a baby is born.
  • These teeth are often not fully developed and may have a weak root.
  • They may be small, loose, and discolored.
  • The cause of natal teeth is unknown.
  • Your child’s healthcare provider or dentist may recommend having them removed if they may cause a problem.

Dear Lybrate user, you might be facing this difficulty due to your jaw joint problem. (TMJ) Consult your dentist immediately to determine the exact cause. There might be some dislocation for which you'll be advised a soft diet for a few days alongwith mouth opening exercises. If it's painful, the dentist might advise some medicines too.
