Hi, the only difference between gutkha & panmasala is that pan masala does not contain tobacco. Rest all ingredients are same eg areca nut, slaked lime, flavouring agents etc. Bad effects of both just the same. Please avoid at all costs.

Hi, There are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

Bleeding is due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a 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 have space in my teeth due to extraction so what option do I choose bridge or implant?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Since you are on medication for vit d deficiency, implant is not the best option. Bridge is a better option as there will not be any involvement of bone directly.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Take multivitamin containing lycopene cap od for 2 weeks along with consume cold things. For intraoral ulcers use topical dologel-ct /heal plus mix it with kenacort gel and apply 3-4 times wherever you feel burning. Use hexidine mouthwash 10-15ml dilute it with half glass of water. Consult a dentist for proper investigation.

FIND YOUR RIGHT BRUSH!!!!!
Have you ever wondered what to look when you are shopping for a right brush for yourself. We always read the contents, calorie intake etc etc when you buy something to eat but then why choose anything when it comes to taking care of your oral hygiene.
So, here are some tips you need to observe while buying a toothbrush for yourself
1. It should always be SOFT TOOTHBRUSH- No matter how delicate it might look , remember you are cleaning your teeth not your clothes. So never buy a hard or a medium brush. This is always written on either extreme top or extreme bottom of the toothbrush you are buying. Remember, it should be a soft toothbrush.
2. Any branded company recognised by the American Dental Association will do . I am not promoting a brand but remember to choose a good company because that will usually follow the guidelines followed by ADA to design a toothbrush.
3. Have additional features- Features you need are Gum Stimulators( for massaging the gums), 360 degree cleaning . If you are wearing braces, make sure you have a specially designed orthodontic brush for yourself.

So, i hope next time if i see you in the grocery store you know what to buy..

It is normal to have ulcers in the mouth.. Many reasons like stress, vitamin deficiency, injury etc can cause it.. It usually disappears in a week or 2.. You cannot completely prevent ulcers from coming.. It is a way of our body to tell us that " Boss, reduce your stress and eat nutritious food" 😊

There is so much gap in between all teeth of mine, mostly it gets strucked/ make place in between gaps of teeth, whatever I eat. Is there any solution for the problem?

Dentist, Bangalore
Hi, If alignment of teeth is not proper, this problem can b solved by orthodontic(braces) treatment and if alignment is normal then u can go for veneers which covers front surface so gap won't be visible.
