What should I take care after my teeth scaling done? I have done my teeth scaling and polishing today.
Looking after your teeth helps keep your mouth in optimum condition. Ways to maintain good oral health include: • Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. • Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day inter dentally • 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 • Check your mouth regularly for any unusual sores and lesions • Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and have regular thorough dental check-ups where your dentist will look at • the health of both your teeth and your mouth Most importantly, do not delay seeking immediate advice from a dentist or medical professional if you notice any unusual symptoms or sores on your lips or in your mouth.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Patients with an identifiable cause of bad breath e.g., periodontal (gum) disease, gingivitis, postnasal drip, systemic illness can be treated for these conditions.
Many cases of bad breath may be readily alleviated by:
Proper dental care and oral hygiene, including daily flossing.
Gentle cleaning of the posterior portion of the dorsum of tongue (e.g., with a plastic tongue cleaner).
Rinsing and deep gargling with an effective mouthwash (in order to get the liquid as far back as possible without swallowing it, one can extend the tongue while gargling). This is most effective when done at bedtime.
Eating fibrous foods (a healthy breakfast is recommended).
Chewing gum briefly (5 minutes is often sufficient) if the mouth is dry, or after meals, especially with high protein intake. Sugar-free gum is preferable.
Sufficient water intake.
Decreasing alcohol and coffee intake.

I am 33 year old male. I am having ulcers in my mouth from the last few days. I applied smyle gel but did not get proper relief. What else can I do to get relief for that.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Suffering with bad breath from when I am at the age of 12 and it's continuing how to stop it. I am trying ginger a piece a day daily I heard it stops bad breath permanently ?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
If you never undergone for dental cleaning , first you should visit a dentist for cleaning.Because one of the main cause for bad breath is improper cleaning. On other side u should brush properly two times a day.And use a mouthwash at night before sleeping. And you can continue with ginger.It also helps in this case. Thank you.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

I feel pain while brushing How to remove cavities frm my teeth My teeth have become yellow Which paste should I use.

MDS
Dentist, Kota
I feel pain while brushing How to remove cavities frm my teeth My teeth have become yellow Which paste should I use.
Hello, pain while brushing is generally sensitivity and its due to thinning of enamel or brushing aggressively. To remove the cavities you need to visit dentist and get all filled with restorative materials. If you are brushing very hard, it will remove the upper layer and your teeth will appear more yellow. So get a visit to dentist and learn brushing properly and prevent further loss.

If the pericoronitis is limited to the tooth (for example, if the pain and swelling has not spread), treat it by rinsing your mouth with warm salt water. You should also make sure that the gum flap has no food trapped under it. If your tooth, jaw, and cheek are swollen and painful, see your dentist right away.

How to protect my teeth.?

BDS
Dentist,
Limit sugary foods and drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Eat foods that protect enamel. Calcium in food counters acids in your mouth that cause decay. Avoid over-brushing. You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard. Use fluoride. Avoid grinding your teeth. Get regular checkups.
