Hi. You have deposition below gums that causes bad breath, you have to go for scaling (cleaning done by a dentist) and you will be ok.

Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

BDS, CDE Endo-Prostho, CDE - Cast Partial & Complete Dentures
Dentist, Pune
Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

What is scaling?
Over time, even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque (sticky, soft, bacteria infected layer) and tartar (calcium) deposits build up on your teeth. Scaling removes the tartar and plaque with specialised equipment. Scaling effectively cleans up your teeth by using ultrasound to loosen the tartar and then using tools to scrape it off from the surface of the tooth.

What is polishing?
Polishing is done to remove excess plaque and remove stains. Scaling is always followed by polishing. Polishing also smoothes and shines the teeth to prevent plaque from building up again. It is either done by foam or fluoride gel treatment to reduce the possibility of tooth decay and sensitivity.

Why are they done?
Scaling and polishing are not only done for cosmetic reasons; they are also done for overall oral health. Excessive plaque and tartar buildup will eventually lead to the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive and multiply. The ultimate purpose of polishing and scaling is to clean the surface of the teeth so that the bacteria cannot attach to them and cause serious oral problems (such as gum disease). Also, scaling and polishing offer far better cleaning of your teeth than everyday brushing and flossing.

However, scaling and polishing is not a curative treatment. If your teeth have been damaged by cavities or other oral diseases, you need medical attention.

In fact, professionally, this treatment is called prophylactic treatment; and the word ‘prophylactic’ comes from prophylaxis, which is Greek for ‘to prevent disease’. Thus scaling and polishing is more of a preventive measure than a cure.

Do they hurt?
This process is essentially painless. Most of the people who undergo this treatment usually have the following experiences:

  1. Tickling sensation
  2. Coolness from the water used to clean the mouth
  3. Pressure during the scraping process (The dentist uses specialised tools to “scrape” the tartar deposits off the tooth’s surface). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

See your dentist every six months. Your teeth may not look dirty from the outside, but bacteria and plaque lurks in places you cannot see in the mirror.

If cavity is not deep or there is no pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then go for restoration (filling) but if cavity is deep or there is pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then first get the X-RAY done of that tooth and send me the X-RAY picture for further diagnosis.

What are the best home remedies for an extreme tooth pain? I really can't control it.
Tooth pain is such a state in which it is very important to visit dentist, because he can tell you the reason behind it and proper treatment also. For home remedies you can do warm saline rinses and if possible clove oil dressing in the cavity can give you temporary relief.

Taking a large no. of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

No toothpaste will give your father a permanent relief. A reason for pain has to be diagnosed first. Take your father to your nearest dentist.

Definately. You should start brushing your baby's teeth. Do it without toothpaste until she learns to spitt. There are lot many types of soft bristle tooth brushes available in the market. Also make this habit of cleaning the tongue also.

When the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed, septic or lifeless, one needs to go through the root canal treatment.

Hello, First Quit the smoking because it can affect you in future. It may Damage your gums and other muscles later. To clean your teeth start brushing twice a day, also use a good mouthwash, and visit a dentist soon for scaling of teeth.

What Is a Tooth- Selfie?

What Is a Tooth- Selfie?

 

  •  INTRA ORAL CAMERA.
  • This is used to capture images of the teeth, which are then displayed on a large monitor or computer screen.

What is it's purpose?

  • Sometimes you think your teeth are perfectly fine, and all you need is a cleaning. But there might be a tooth that is positioned completely behind in the jaw, and decayed and not visible to your eye. Ouch !
  • You might be completely unaware that your teeth has turned black due to decay, or has accumulated stains and tartar on the back of tooth surface due to excessive coffee, tea or smoking that requires cleaning, or swelling and pus in the gum, or an fractured cusp.

OH! So what?

  • These teeth that are causing hidden troubles are photographed for you using this pen like device and projected on screen ,and the dentist explains to you what exact treatment you need to undergo and why.

Isn't it always good, to be aware of every process that you undergo and understand why you need a particular treatment?

It's proven fact that anxiety decreases when the patient is more mentally prepared for the procedure.

This new technological advancement is patient friendly and highly self explanatory in nature

Today the tooth might be saved after root canal. Tomorrow it might have to be extracted if you don't get root canal done now.
