No matter how hard I try brushing my teeth it still remains yellow. Is this a disorder? What should I do?

No matter how hard I try brushing my teeth it still remains yellow. Is this a disorder? What should I do?
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need artificial enamel filling. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

U can go for implants, that treatment is good you can trust the treatment no problem you can go ahead. It is time taking but good treatment. I think in Qatar it is very costly otherwise you can cum to India for the treatment.

BDS

Proper scaling and polishing done by a local dentist, brush your teeth twice daily, use a paste like Colgate pro gum for Gum care, use Rexidin mouthwashes, regular dental floss. You can also use Gumex gum astringent on the area that bleeds

Sensitivity is a big problem, if you are facing this problem try to use a sensitive paste for a week and if sensitivity persists then you must visit a dentist. Sensitivity can be due to many reasons like:
a) cervical abrasion which happens due to incorrect brushing technique
b) fractured filling
c) chipped tooth
d) dental caries/cavity
e) using a very hard brush
f) gum recession
g) capping a vital tooth
h) improperly done RCT etc
Try to visit a dentist as soon as possible to rule out the etiology behind sensitivity.

Tooth ache may be due to infection, tooth decay, gum problem etc. Anything stuck in the teeth may also cause the problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take magnesia phos 200 twice daily in the morning and evening.

Hi lybrate-user. You are treating the ulcers repeatedly but not finding out the cause of the ulcers. Visit a dentist who will find the cause of the ulcers and treat it so that they don't recur.

I am suffering with teeth pain & please suggest me the best paste to clean up pluck in my mouth.?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hi pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, tooth abcess, gum disease, and fracture of tooth. You need to go for proper investigation to rule out the cause of pain. After that treatment plan can be decided. For plaque, get scaling done. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

Black marks or teeth are mostly due to decay. If the decay is deep, root canal treatment followed by cap is necessary. Attach the x-ray of tooth, if you have. For precaution, brush twice daily. Limit your food intake to 4-5 times a day. Forcefully gargle with water after you eat or drink anything. Avoid sweet sticky foods.

Hello for ulcers you can use this gel by name DOLOGEL-CT. Apply this 3,4 times for 5 days on the ulcer either with a cotton bud or with your finger. Let it stay for sometime, don't rinse, you can spit. Also take Vitamin B complex one tablet daily for 7 days. Avoid spicy food if not cured after 5 days then visit your dentist. Regards.

Pain in teeth while eating hot or cold food is indication of sensitivity. You can use sensitivity toothpaste. Normal healthy teeth need not be pearly white. A slightly milky colour is quiet common. Still if you want to lighten you teeth colour you can go for bleaching.

Bleeding Gums After Scaling!

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
Bleeding Gums After Scaling!
  • Though bleeding from gums after deep scaling is normal in most of the cases and subsides after 2-3 hours without any conscious efforts, there are some patients whose gums tends to bleed more and often persists for longer than 72 hours depending upon severity of inflammation.
  • Prevention: when you face similar problem kindly inform your dentist. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. Just you have to prevent the clot to get dislodged from bleeding area. You can apply pressure gauze, black tea bag and can also use alums to rinse 3-4 times at home. 
  • Sometimes, those who are on blood thinner medications (aspirin) or anticoagulant therapy can also suffer with this problem. They should inform their dentist prior to undergo scaling.
