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

Gingivitis (Gum DIsease)

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Gingivitis is an early gum disease. It affects the surface layers of the gum, particularly where the gum meets the tooth. At this stage, there is no damage to the deeper parts of the gums, teeth or bone.

The signs of gingivitis are:
1. Bleeding gums, especially when brushing or eating
2. Redness and swelling of the gum.

The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed.
You might think it is best to stop brushing if your gums are red or puffy. Try to keep brushing, as this will get rid of the bacteria and plaque that is causing the problem. Soon the gums should look and feel better. If not, see your dentist for proper treatment.

Complete Smile Makeover

Your smile holds great importance as it is one of the first things that a person will notice about you. A smile can leave a long lasting impression on people and is very important for self-esteem and confidence. Smile makeover is a process, which considers your facial appearance, tone of skin, color, width, length or shape of your teeth along with the gum tissues and lips in order to improve your smile. A smile makeover can be done according to your preference and choices.

Here are the areas on which a complete smile makeover concentrates and improves upon:

Teeth color: for a perfect smile make over, natural, composite restorations can be used to replace silver and amalgam dental fillings. Teeth whitening process can be undertaken to improve upon the color of the teeth, which are stained or dull. The color and shade of teeth are taken into consideration for several things such as crowns, bridges or dental implants. White, glossy teeth give a youthful, fresh smile. The whitening is done to such an extent that it complements your other features.
Spacing and alignment of teeth: teeth which overlap each other, have gaps in between or have a crooked appearance can be straightened, and the alignment can be modified by orthodontics or invisalign.
Replacing missing teeth: missing teeth affect your appearance and your smile by a great deal. The risk of tooth decay is also enhanced. For an ideal smile make over, missing teeth should be replaced with dentures, bridges or other modes of dental implants.
Balancing uneven teeth: in case of uneven or chipped teeth with cracks on them, you can undergo cosmetic correction procedures to make your teeth appear balanced. In case you have a gummy smile, you can undergo recontouring procedures for improvement of your smile.
Modifying lips and cheeks: an unshapely face with wrinkles makes your smile unpleasant. This can be corrected using several procedures, which include orthodontics and oral maxillofacial surgery. Correction of your lips and cheeks will improve your smile to a great extent.
Tooth length: long teeth are responsible for a fresh, youthful smile. In case of short teeth, smile makeover techniques such as reshaping or lengthening of teeth can be undertaken. This will improve your smile. The proportion of your teeth can also be corrected to give you a perfect smile. The texture of the teeth can also be modified as a part of the smile makeover.

Treatments used for smile makeover:

A dentist can use an entire range of treatment to achieve your ideal smile makeover. These include:
In-office, professional teeth whitening, can brighten teeth up to 9 shades in a single visit
Porcelain veneers, thin, natural-looking, ceramic shells that mask imperfections such as cracks and chips
Dental crowns, tooth-shaped prosthetics that go over misshapen or worn teeth
Invisalign, clear, removable, custom aligners that gradually straighten minor alignment issues
Dental bonding, resin bonded to teeth that conceal cracks, gaps, and chips
Gum contouring, removing excess gum tissue to improve appearance and conformity of smile

A complete smile makeover allows you to correct and improve your smile, according to your preference. This process involves several cosmetic methodologies, the proper execution of which gives you an enhanced smile.

Hi lybrate-user. Sorry to know about your pain. Rightly said by you there is a hole in the area where the tooth was taken out. And food stuffs get stuck there and the pain nags u. Though usually the pain in such cases is not too severe. But a constant nag that your attention gets deflected from your daily routine. Well george nothing to worry about this. As this is the course of healing how the socket heals. Eventually the hole will close by the gums and much later where there is a hole the bone forms. But my freind this takes a while as you know bone and gums don't form so fast. Let the nature take its course. Ofcourse for the pain you can take any pain killers that suits you or the pain killer prescribed by your dentist. Makes sure you keep urself hydrated well and be on a high protien diet. Your dentist must've mentioned you about salt water rinses. Continue doin that as it doesn't let the bacteria grow because of the food stuffs inadvertently getting on to the area. Give it a few days and ill be totally fine. Don't overprescribe urself with medicines. As let the body fight against the mild pain. Eat well and stay hydrated and keep the area clean.

My teeth are yellowish and in spite of brushing the color is not going. I consulted a dentist and she recommended for scaling and advanced bleaching. I heard that these treatment are temporary and we lose our natural shining. The top layer of teeth is removed and temporary shining is given with some chemicals which last for 3 to 4 months and we have to regularly take this treatment.?

Get your scaling done and maintain your oral hygiene. Go for home bleach if you are apprehensive about office bleach. In home bleach kit you can bleach whenever you feel like.

- 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.

Plz take a pain killer and then consult a dentist. Pain killer is only going to give you temporary relief. Dentist will find out the cause of the pain and help you to get rid of it. As a temporary measure, you can apply clove oil.

The answer is no. You should avoid any type of water or food intake for approx. 30 minutes after using mouthwash. A clinical study evaluated the effect of rinsing with a mouthwash on salivary ph and plaque ph. Following pre treatment ph determinations, subjects rinsed with tap water for 30 seconds and ph was monitored periodically over 30 minutes; after a 10 minute rest period, the procedure was repeated with mouthwash substituted for tap water. Both the plaque ph and the salivary ph remained well above the critical ph of 5.7 (where demineralization occurs during the entire 30 minute period of the study). In addition, it is important to note that mouthwash (ph 4.2) is rapidly neutralized by the buffers in saliva during and after rinsing and any drop in ph will be of extremely short duration, especially when compared to that of carbonated drinks and citrus drinks and fluids which are far more difficult to neutralize. Furthermore, mouthwash is an expectorated product; therefore the contact time of the mouth rinse with the tooth surface is short.

I'm having pulpitides on my two wisdom teeth. Now I'm taking antibiotics for three days. And I'm going to get my teeth removed 3 days later. The problem is that my heart rates keep accelerated, and I have some headaches too. Looks like my infections are not 100% under control. Q1, Can I still go for teeth extraction 3 days later? Or can I still wait for 3 days? Q2, What should I do to minimize any complication during and after the surgery? Thanks a billion.

Hello, it is a systemic problem. You need to consult a physician, and get your blood pressure and cardiac levels checked. Under the physician's recommendation, you can get your tooth removed or not.

You can delay but cannot avoid third molar extraction. You can try warm saline gargles for a few days.

The toothache you are referring to may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1.Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums The most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (RCT). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an RCT. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. I suggest that that you consult me privately on Lybrate, so that I can provide more specific answers. You will be able to send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

Hi, the most common cause of bleeding gums is due to gum disease called gingivitis. I would advice you to get your teeth cleaned by a dentist as gingivitis is caused by deposition of plaque and calculus on teeth. Regards.
