Yes, it can damage the enamel if taken in concentrated form. You can take lukewarm water with lemon daily. But do not brush immediately after taking lemon water. This can accelerate loss of enamel. It is better to brush in the morning first n thn take lemon water.

Tips for Selecting Proper Toothbrush – By Dr. Bharat Katarmal – A Dentist at Jamnagar

Tips for Selecting Proper Toothbrush – By Dr. Bharat Katarmal – A Dentist at Jamnagar
It's important for overall health to choose a brush that gets your mouth clean and keeps it healthy. Toothbrush is the principal and most important instrument to clean teeth.

You know that market is flooded with so many types of toothbrush in various colors, type, shape and size. Some toothbrush brands promise fresh breath, deep cleaning and even teeth whitening, those makes people more confused, and make shopping of toothbrush challenge.

There are, however, some toothbrush basics that you need to know. Here are some tips about selecting proper toothbrush.

Size of Toothbrush
The best toothbrush head allow you easy access to all surfaces of your teeth. For most adults, toothbrushes head a half-inch wide and one-inch tall will be the easiest to use and the most effective. There are also larger toothbrush heads available, but they are difficult to use to clean certain areas, such as the sides and backs of your molars. The toothbrush should have a long enough handle so you can comfortably hold it in your hand. The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth surfaces easily.

Bristle variety of Toothbrush
This is the most important point in selecting toothbrush. There are so many varieties of bristle type ranging from hard, medium, soft and ultra soft. Some people use the hardest bristles as they believe that it can achieve a better clean, but these can be having a negative impact on their teeth and gums. It has been shown that the harder bristles can cause premature gum recession and wear facets (Abrasion, Toothbrush trauma) on the teeth. For these reasons we recommend using the soft bristles as they achieve the good result with minimum trauma to the teeth and gums. A soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from teeth. The soft-bristled toothbrush will be the most comfortable and safest choice. They are easier on your gums. When you brush, you want to clean your teeth, not make your gums bleed. A toothbrush with hard bristles is more likely to cause bleeding gums. Depending on how vigorously you brush your teeth and the strength of your teeth, medium and hard bristled brushes could actually damage the gums, root surface, and protective tooth enamel. For even more tooth protection when you brush, be sure the bristles on the toothbrush you select have rounded tips. The thin bristles tips are able to enter and sweep food particles from along the gum line and between narrower gaps between the teeth. The ultra soft bristled toothbrush mainly used after gum surgery specially recommended by dentists.
Remember: The Softest the better.

Don't forget: After daily use, your toothbrush can lose its effectiveness; its bristles become hard and even become a breeding ground for germs, fungus and bacteria. For that reason toothbrush should be replaced 3 monthly. If you recently had a cold or infection, you may have transferred germs to your toothbrush so be sure to use a new toothbrush.

Don’t Miss the Dental Visits
Brushing teeth is an essential part of daily routine, but remember that regular dental visits are most important to the overall dental health. By visiting dentist twice a year for checkups and dental cleanings, and learning how to brush properly, you will definitely enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime.
At Dr. Bharat Katarmal Dental and Implant Clinic, Jamnagar, we aim to identify, treat, and educate our patients on the best oral hygiene techniques to help maintain their own oral health at home. If it’s been more than six months since your last check up, a call on 9714290071 to book an appointment for dental check up.

There are many over the counter medicines for angular cheilitis. You can get triamcinolone acetonide or Kenacort topical gel 0.1%, apply 2-3 times over the affected area, it will take 4- 5 days to heal as the area affected is a movable part so repairing is slow compared to other body parts. Try to clean the area with medicated soap 2-3 times daily till problem is resolved.

If the wisdom tooth has erupted fully and in a proper position then we can save it by dental cement filling. If the cavity is deep and near or into the pulp then we can save it by root canal treatment. Ideally we should save natural tooth structure if its fits in above criterias. If the wisdom teeth has erupted in a such way that it's disturbing other tooth structures and we don't have any option left for saving it then only you should go for removal.

The hollowness you can see is the extraction socket.(in my opinion) after tooth extration it may take 30-45 days for new bone formation. Please continue with the medication and do regular followups for further treatment. You can replace the extracted tooth after complete healing with ceramic bridge or implant as suggested by your dentist.

My cousin has a tooth problem. She is getting blood for teeth and with bad odour. What should she do now.

MDS - Periodontics

Hi there. I m gum specialist. Bleeding from gums is mostly due to deposits/tartar on teeth. Your cousin needs a professional cleaning which will also reduce the bad odour. A mouthwash after cleaning will solve this issue. You can direct me your further queries in private question section.

Diabetics have more tendency of having gingivitis or periodontitis (pyorrhoea) due to lower immunity. So try to control your blood sugar. Have regular checkups for that. For bleeding: 1. Use soft bristle brush and apply gentle pressure while brushing. 2. Brush your teeth vertically and not horizontally. 3. Change your toothbrush every 3 months. 4. Take capsule b complex vitamin with vitamin c. This will compensate for any deficiency. 5. You can use sensoform gum paint. Apply it on the gums which bleed for 3-4 mins and rinse your mouth with plain water. Try this for a week. If this doesn't help then you may require scaling and polishing of your teeth.

Surprise! Garlic CURES Bad Breath.
How Garlic CURES Bad Breath

It’s a little known fact that Garlic is very effective when it comes to battling bad breath. Garlic is a natural cleanser and an antibiotic. It helps the body to push out the decaying food particles stuck to the intestinal walls while also killing the harmful bacterium present therein. Food stuck in your gut generally makes your breath smell foul. It’s your body’s way of telling you to clean your stomach.

To get rid of bad breath, simply mince 3-5 cloves of Garlic and swallow with a small glass of milk. You can also add a pinch of parsley to the mix for added effectiveness.

If you would like to consult with me privately, please click on 'Consult'.

Start using colgate soft bristles toothbrush with colgate toothpaste twice daily n don't brush too hard. Do warm saline rinses once or twice a day. Still if d condition is same then get d cleaning of teeth done from a nearby dentist.
