Hello Dr. I am suffering from gingivitis so kindly suggest me that which toothpaste should I use to clean up my teeth and germs. Thank you.

All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Calcium is one of your best friends when it comes to preventing tooth decay. This is especially true for growing children and those with dental issues. Dairy products-be it milk, cheese or yogurt are all good source of calcium.
Other sources includes almonds, broccoli, dried beans.
Have happy smile and healthy teeth.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. Get a full mouth x-ray done to check the bone levels. Depending on that you can go for fixed prosthesis or implant. For bridge the neighbouring two teeth will also have to be reduced in size. Its better to go for an implant. The cost can range from Rs. 15,000-40,000/-.

Implant is, no doubt the best option to replace the missing teeth for you but before the placement of implants you will have to undergo some tests and special xrays on the other side you can also opt for a 4 unit fixed bridge which will involve the adjacent teeth for support the cost of implant varies according to the dentist as well as the system orphaned land ranging from 15000 30000 for 1 unit.

Yes lybrate-user, your age is perfect for the treatment, braces are of three types, metal braces, ceramic (tooth coloured) braces & lingual braces (not visible) as per the type the rates vary. Plus the charges also depend on the complexity of case & the duration it will require which can b judged after oral examination & few xrays like lateral ceph & opg. The basic charges starts from 15000 onwards.

Do whitening toothpastes whiten teeth more than regular toothpastes? Is it safe to microwave food in plastic containers?

Is it safe to microwave food in plastic containers?
Whitening toothpastes do make a little difference but I don't recommend it for a long term use..have seen cases of abrasions happening. Please go for a professional bleaching which is absolutely safe!!

Dear Dr. I am age 30, doing my research in environmental studies. Recently without knowing some drops of benzene (C6H6) were spilled on my face and tongue. I am worrying about it will affect anything to my body r in future. And I have to know how much quantity of benzene will leads to cancer. With regards CS.

Hi. It looks like a serious issue. Benzene is a very volatile compound. Mainly it affects the body through inhalation. And as you r saying it got spilled on your tongue. So in that case, even 0.1 mg of benzene in a litre of drinking water is cancerous. So I suggest to be under regular check up of an oncologist to detect any disease if it starts. Take care.

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. 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...

You need professional cleaning of teeth and gums so that the infection in gums will resolve and you bleeding problem will be solved. For yellowness of your teeth you can use snowdent tooth paste. Apply it on all teeth surfaces and wait for 5-7 min and brush with the same.

Usually, a popping noise in your temporomandibular joint isn’t anything to worry about if it’s not causing you any problems. If it does start to cause problems, there are many invasive treatments that you can try.
