Bleeding from teeth while brushing or in the morning is usually due to deposits on your teeth called calculus. To get rid of bleeding you may have to undergo scaling procedure where dentist cleans out all the calculus that is stuck on your teeth and the inflamed gums come back to the healthy state.

If your teeth are yellow than normal than bleaching can help you. Or excessive yellowness then go for lumineers.

How to Heal Tooth Cavities Naturally?
How to heal tooth cavities naturally?

It is believed that tooth decay once occurred cannot be reversed or healed. But the recent studies have proven this wrong. According to the researches cavity can be healed by improved diet. Tooth decay primarily occurs due to bathing the teeth with the foods containing carbohydrates frequently. Bacteria from mouth feed on these foods and produce acids which destroy tooth enamel over a period of time resulting in cavity.

To heal cavities naturally, we need to include the foods rich in minerals like calcium, fat soluble vitamins lack of which cause cavities.

Ways to heal cavities naturally

1. Avoid sugar and phytic acid (phytate)

Sugar is the food for bacteria. So it is better to avoid sugar in your diet. You can replace sugar with pure honey which is much healthier option.

Phytate is mineral blocker found in nuts, seeds, soy products and grains. It does not only inhibit absorption of minerals in your body but also leaches out minerals from the teeth and bones. You can alter the way you eat the phytate containing foods. Prefer sprouted seeds, fermented soy foods, salted bread etc which cut down the amount of phytate.

2. Minerals

Calcium strengthens teeth. Hence increase your calcium intake by consuming milk, cheese and yogurt. With calcium, include phosphorous and magnesium rich diet also to aid calcium functions.

3. Fat soluble vitamins

Lack of fat soluble vitamins also cause tooth decay. Take diet rich in fat soluble vitamins a, e, k and especially vitamin d. Cod liver oil is great source of vitamin a, d, e. Vitamin k can be acquired from spinach, broccoli, skate liver oil, bone marrow etc. In addition to sunshine, milk, eggs and salmon are also rich in vitamin d.

4. Raw dairy products

Raw dairy products are loaded with calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, fat soluble vitamins. We must include raw dairy products in our diet. Raw cheese, butter, milk are the examples of raw dairy foods.

You can also try coconut oil pulling and activated charcoal / dry neem powder to brush your teeth which can prevent cavity naturally.

I had my tartar removal today and after that my mouth is producing a little more saliva than usual. The doc prescribed me HEX mouthwash. After I used it I had to spit after every 15 mins. Is it ok to gulp the saliva mixed with mouthwash ingredients ?Can I wash my mouth after an hour of using the mouthwash?

It is not necessary to wash your mouth. Mouthwash helps you to kill harmful microorganisms. Spitting your saliva does not harm you but try to avoid that since you will lose the medicines of mouthwash in your saliva.

You need to undergo periodontal flap surgery and if required bone filling by an expert that is periodontist. It is costly treatment but that is what is best for you.

Preventing Gum Disease

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Preventing Gum Disease

Gum diseases affect the soft tissue and the bones surrounding the teeth. The bacteria causes irritation in the gums leading to infection and bleeding, while brushing your teeth. It is characterized by inflammation of the gums caused by the bacteria present in plaque (a colorless and sticky film on the teeth). Also, if many people in the family have suffered from gum disorders, then your chances of getting gum diseases are relatively higher.

Symptoms of gum disease:

  1. Bleeding gums
  2. Continuous bad breath
  3. Change in the normal placement of teeth
  4. Over sensitive gums

How to prevent gum disease from happening?

  1. Regular dental checkups are also recommended to identify any gum problems early and also prevent them.
  2. Modifications in lifestyle such as limiting smoking, eating a diet rich in antioxidants and reducing stress can also help in preventing gum diseases.
  3. Gum diseases can be prevented by following proper dental hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing on a regular basis are the best methods of preventing gum diseases.
  4. Severe cases of gum diseases may require surgery but mild cases can disappear by following a proper dental hygiene.

Hi lybrate-user, you can get your decayed teeth filled with cosmetic fillings which will be very hard to detect with the naked eyes by the board. Moreover properly filled teeth are not a disability but carious teeth are. Good luck.
