Little bit of blood is coming after every eating through my mouth. What should I do? Please help me.
Bleeding gums can be a sign of early gum disease. You need to get a professional cleaning of your teeth done to remove any accumulated tartar. This should solve your problem. After that regular day to day care like twice a day brushing and vigorous rinsing after any food will keep your gums and teeth healthy.

My friend has lost all the taste in her mouth. She is able to eat everything but as she feels no taste, she doesn't feel like eating. What can be the cause of this? Please provide some solution.

Our toung consists of several taste buds, because of these taste buds we can feel the various tastes like sweet, sour, spicy etc. Damage to these taste buds results in loss of taste sensation. Excessive food deposition on tongue also results in loss of taste sensation. Some times having too cold or hot liquids frequently also results in loss of taste sensation. Wat you should do: 1- maintain good oral hygine by brushing twice a day. 2- avoid too cold and hot liquids and food. 3- keep your tongue clean by tongue cleaner. Sometimes disease of tongue went unnoticed also causes this situation. So primarily follow above instructions if that doesn't solve the problem then only go to an e. N. T. Surgeon for further diagnosis and investigations.

Hi, the yellow stains can be superficial stains or might be the natural hue of your teeth. If they are superficial stains they can not be removed by brushing but only by getting a complete scaling done. Further deeper stains and dthe yellowish hue of your teeth can be removed by bleaching to a certain extent.

Consult a good physician and go for regular blood and urine test. She might have some chronic infection or she might live in over stressed condition.

Do not delay dental treatment just because there is no pain in your teeth.

Many times there is decay, food lodgement and sensitivity in teeth but no pain. If treated at an early stage, pain and swelling can be prevented. So get regular check ups done.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. 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.

Please get a scaling done. But it will not be out of place here to mention that most pan masalas contain arica nut which is quite habituation and can cause sub mocous fibrosis which is considered precancerous pl get rid of this habit as soon as possible.

Is It Time for Braces?

Is It Time for Braces?
This is the most worrying question for parents.
By age 12 or 13, most kids will have lost all of their baby teeth and will be having a full set of adult teeth. Around this time, some parents will start to notice that their preteen’s smile isn’t looking so straight anymore. If your child’s smile is starting to appear a bit crowded or crooked, it might be time for you to seek out a orthodontist for braces. Orthodontic problems—or problems dealing with the alignment of the teeth and shape of the jaw—are common in preteens. In fact, almost half of preteens need braces or some other kind of orthodontic treatment. If you’re concerned about your child’s smile, ask your dentist today.
When should you seek orthodontic treatment for your kids? The answer is as soon as possible. As kids enter their late teen years, jaw growth slows and the bones holding the teeth in place begin to harden and set. Once in adulthood, the jaw stops growing altogether. Adults can successfully shape their smile with orthodontic treatment, but they may have to use a retainer for the rest of their life. Many experts feel that the earlier orthodontic treatment can begin, the better the outcome. Before braces, however, your child may need to wait until all 28 of their adult teeth have grown in. And sometimes orthodontic problems don’t even appear until later into the teen years. Just keep an eye on those teeth and see an orthodontist as soon as you start to think there could be a problem.
In some cases, if parents see that at a age earlier than 11 years, there is too much misalignment of teeth, as they are erupting, it is best to ask your dentist if some intervention is needed to stop a problem from worsening.

The treatment with braces to treat mal-aligned teeth can be started anytime after 10 yrs depending on individual cases. Its not just for aesthetics but for better tooth alignment for better chewing and maintain oral hygiene.
