Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth

If chewing food and retaining a sparkling smile is not enough for you, avoiding toothaches and a visit to the dentist could be reason enough to maintain healthy teeth. Ignoring your tooth health can lead to many problems. Answer yourself the following question. Would you like your teeth inside your mouth or in a glass tumbler beside your bed at nighttime? 

If you opted for the former, then going through the following tips and advices will go a long way in helping you sustain healthy teeth. They are:

  1. Brush and floss twice a day: Brushing and flossing twice a day, on a regular basis will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums in the long run. The ideal time to brush your teeth is 20 minutes after a meal. Opting for a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles gives you better access to even the deeper portions of your mouth, thus providing comprehensive cleansing to your teeth. Moreover, softer bristles are generous on your gums as well.
  2. Nutrition: Whatever you eat, either protects you or makes you more susceptible to diseases and disorders. This stands true for your oral health as well. As such, choosing the right foods early in your life is of vital importance. Foods such as cold drinks, cakes, candies and other such sugary substances facilitate the growth of germ and bacteria in your mouth, resulting in plaque and cavities. Choosing foods that are low in starch and sugar will reduce the development of germs and help eradicate cavities or plaque in the long run.
  3. Smoking: Even the pack of smoke that you buy endorses smoking is injurious to your general health. Smoking causes reduced flow of blood to the mouth, which resultantly leads to increased chances of periodontal disease and mouth cancer. Smoking, moreover causes a decline in the ability of the bones and tissues to revascularize (self-heal). All else apart, just stop smoking.
  4. Chewing gums: Chewing gums are highly beneficial especially after a meal. They not only increase the flow of saliva in your mouth, but also improves the flow of blood to your brain, thus enhancing your alertness by close to 10%. In addition, chewing gums help neutralize the acid in your mouth, thus helping you cleanse your mouth.

Hello, Being premature, he would have born with low, birth weight. At the age of 2.5 months if he weighs 3 kgs it should be doing OK. But it largely depends on his birth weight. Give him more of your milk, as being premature he would be immune compromised. Mother milk is the best food for the baby, as it boosts immunity and it is also a complete food for the baby. If he is constantly crying every hour for milk, it means he is underfed. Ensure 20 mins of feed on each breast is crucial, generally babies get tired or go off to sleep in that process, wake him up and ensure that the baby doesn't sleep half way.

Hi, Based upon your complaint, she is suffering from common cold. Give her SYP. SINAREST-AF 2.5 ml three times a day for 3 to 5 days. Maintain good personal hygiene, give her hot water to drink. If she develops cough and difficult in breathing, consult nearby child specialist.

As per your history it appears to be chronic Febrile illness. The doctors must have advised you for blood reports. If the blood reports are non suggestive of any disease then we have to go for bone marrow examination to find the cause of fever of unknown origin. You can discuss this things with your doctor. Also as she is not gaining weight it is important to keep a check on the diet that she is taking your doctor will help you in this also.
