Keeping Your Toothbrush Clean

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Good Toothbrush Hygiene is as important as maintaining a good Oral Hygiene. Here are few ways to make sure your toothbrush is truly clean:

Don’t share toothbrushes. Using someone else’s toothbrush exposes you to another person’s body fluids and potential germs, which could make you sick. People with compromised immune systems or who are sick with something they could pass on to another person should take special care to use only their own toothbrush.

Rinse your toothbrush after brushing. Give it a thorough washing to remove any leftover toothpaste or debris.

Store your toothbrush in an upright position. When you’re done brushing, try to store it standing straight up and allow it to air-dry until your next brushing. If there’s more than one brush in the same holder, try to keep them as separate as possible to prevent cross-contamination.

Keep your toothbrush out in the open. Do not routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers. A moist environment, such as a closed container, is more conducive to the growth of bacteria than the open air.

Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. Bristles that become frayed and worn with use and will be less effective at cleaning teeth. Children’s toothbrushes often need replacing more frequently than adult brushes.

I want to use braces in my teeth  how much it cost and is there any side effect.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Cost may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. It varies with dentist. You may consult me in person. 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.

Saliva is one of our body's strongest soldiers battling bacteria. Foods that promote saliva production, such as tart or sour foods including lemons, limes, cherries and cranberries, can help your body fight bacteria in your mouth. Drinking water is another great way to produce saliva, clear bacteria and cleanse your oral cavity. Foods that have a high water content also help to thwart the process of decay by diluting the sugars in the foods you consume. In other words, eat your fruits and veggies.

Sir, one of my upperparts of teeth is hole.

Hi, you should visit your dentist and get an x - ray done. Depending upon the extent of the decay (hole in your teeth), treatment like regular filling or rct can be done.

Fillings for Teeth and Root Canal Treatment

BDS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S)

What happens when you have a cavity?

When tooth decay is limited there is no pain. All decay starts on the enamel. Sealants can be applied to reduce the acid attack on the teeth. If detected early, these can be very well managed by removing the decayed portion and filling it with tooth-colored composite resin restorations. Remember that even at a relatively late stage, when the tooth is broken / decayed badly it can built back to its original form.

Glass ionomer cement: this is used for small restorations, especially in primary or milk teeth in children, mostly for economic reasons.
Composites: composite resins attach themselves to the tooth by a chemical reaction. The biggest advantage is that they can be made to match the tooth with the appropriate shade.

Dental pain occurs when the complex supply of blood vessels and nerves (the pulp) is affected by bacteria as they burrow into the tooth layers (enamel and dentin), along with their noxious by-products and acid. The deeper the decay enters, higher the chances of infection and increasing intensity of pain.

What happens when you have a root canal?

Severe excruciating pain is experienced, when decay reaches the pulp is usually with a set of aggravating factors either hot and / or cold. Root canal therapy is required to save the tooth.

Root canal: in root canal treatment, basically the tooth is treated for the infection and all the diseased tissue of the tooth is removed and filled. With good treatment the pain should disappear in a few days. Remember that root canal can be done in single sitting and when done with adequate local anaesthesia (injection) they are pretty much pain free!

Usually a cap is required on the tooth. Ceramic crowns or caps are being made of ceramic material more often; gradually it is becoming the most preferred option since this looks and feels very natural.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • 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. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

What are side effects of tooth scaling for cleansing? does it make the tooth weaker and sensitive?

No not at all. Scaling is done to clean the bacterial deposits like calculus and plaque that helps in maintaining the healthy oral environment.

My tongue started with a yellow/white coating beginning at the back but not continuing half way down the front. It was difficult to swallow/spit saliva and my that mildly burnt. I continued brushing my tongue and now there's a large, red, raw patch down the back, middle. I am currently in India (consuming mire than normal chili/spices) and I am smoking and drinking quite a lot, I assume these will assist with a slight diagnosis? Thank you.

Hi from your complaint, the coating may be due to candidial infection. Because this is the one which goes off on scrapping leaving a raw area. Since this is in the posterior part of the tongue it would have spread to your throath making it difficult to swallow. This is one angle of viewing your problem. Other view is your throat would have been inflamed due to your habits and food making swallowing difficult. The raw area may be due to scrapping. Kindly conult your dentist as this problem has to be examined. Get well soon.

Dear lybrate-user, it seems your tooth has become carious and the nerve inside it has collected infection. In such a situation, it hurts even when you close your teeth together. You may experience pain on eating hot and/or cold as well. You should get an x ray of your tooth affected so that further treatment can be recommended. As far as I understand from your symptoms, the tooth concerned will need rct (root canal treatment).

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.

Most of the tim, wisdom tooth pains a lott while errupting, yes it can definately be removed, if it is not coming in the proper position & direction, ths will b judged by the dentist himself by taking an x ray. The process of wisdom tooth removal depends on the position, direction of tooth & the complexity of root anatomy,& as per case the tim duration varies which will b told to you by your Dr. The process is done after giving a local anaesthesia so juz dun worry, may b the process may tak tim bt it will not b painful. 80% of the tim wisdom tooths require extraction so juz dun wry it will not affect you in any way in the future.
