The black marks may b due two reasons largely. Either due to prolonged use of chlorhexidine mouthwashes or bacterial stains which is due to inherent colour of residual bacteria in ur mouth. Stop mouthwash if u r using ny or get scaling and polishing done to get rid of the stains

What to do to get rid of bad breath?
It's very easy to improve your breath and keep your teeth and gums healthy at the same time. 1. Brush twice daily and floss the inter-dental area. 2. Scrape your tongue. 3. Avoid foods that smell bad in your breath. 4. Rinse your mouth out frequently. 5. Chew sugar free gum after meals. 6. Moisten your mouth by increase intake of water. I hope these simple steps will make your mouth feel fresh and clean. And do visit to your dentist once in a year at least.

hii complete absence of saliva is not a normal thing,along with thirst u may face stickiness, difficulty in chewing food and stuff, and even some kind of buring too. later stages definately gonna pose caries problems as well. so, better for now, icrease the water intake, sialogouges, try to wet ur oral cavity every hr,chewng chewng gums may help. keep a healthy chek if ur dietary intake is proper. try for fwe days, if still issue remained concern the nearby clinic asap.

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.

Stains on teeth surface can be due to smoking, tobacco, gutka, alcohol and pan like products. Avoid taking these as they can cause serious problems like cancer. Bleaching will help you in this regard.
