My teeth are little yellowish in colour which toothpaste or mouthwash do I have to use to get rid of that?

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.

Daily Habits That Have Been Damaging Your Teeth!

Daily Habits That Have Been Damaging Your Teeth!

Using tooth picks

The worst habit you could possibly have when you have food lodgement in the mouth is using a tooth pick to get rid of it. We often try and use this as an acceptable habit even socially but few things are grosser than watching people pick out food bits after meals. If you have a cavity get it fixed. We have numerous cases where the toothpicks have either injured the gums and caused a larger infection or even worse broken in the cavity and triggered of even more pain. So stay safe from dental emergencies do not use tooth picks! while it's important to prevent food lodgement in the mouth and keep your mouth clean use things like brushes interdental brushes and floss sticks or dentists to help you do the same without harming you!

Using a hard or medium brush.

The oldest myth we have seen is brushing your teeth with a hard or medium brush. Please terminate this habit right away ensure you switch to a soft brush at the earliest.

We do not need more teeth ruined or worn off due to overzealous brushing. We see cases with the entire left side worn down and sensitive and I can tell the person is a right handed vigorous brusher. The softer the brush the better it bends and cleans between teeth as well. The gums also recede due to repeated trauma from the hard bristles so save your mouth from these constant attacks in the name of cleaning.

Scrubbing your teeth

The same principle applies when you switch from a hard to soft or extra soft brush don't apply so much pressure that the teeth and gums are still braving the injury.

You need to brush gently as though cleaning glass the force being minimum the reach and coverage being maximum!

So scrubbing is a habit we need to stop.

Not brushing at night

One of the best things we can do to avoid the dentist or any dental troubles is brushing at night. When it comes to cleaning your teeth frequency matters more than force. Ensuring you clean every 12 hours makes bacterial attacks that cause decay inactive so whenever we skip brushing at night we may not realise but it's definitely costing us.

Popping painkillers

The first sign of dental pain and we instinctively choose to ignore it hoping it will go away and if it doesn't we want to go ahead and pop a painkiller till it does. Masking the problem will actually make it bigger -while we all know this we prefer to accept the instant relief the medication provides over the tedious dental visit that may end with bad news. But imagine if we had gone at the very first sign of trouble most likely we would get away with a dental cleaning -the later we go the more often we need to go for extensive treatments.

Let's try and muster the courage to nip these problems in the bud -a habit to develop show up at the very first sign of trouble.

Do it yourself dentistry (diy) at home

We have all been our own dentists at some point!

From self medication to oral applications and home remedies when all else fails we make an appointment.

A few things are harmful and should be used with care when attempting our own dental care.

We recommend mild things like oral rinses or applications which relieve pain but do not use aspirin or any other pain killer to crush and put in the site, that can cause burns.

Also clove oil is a safe remedy but not cloves which can be sharp and hurt your cheek.

Do not try to remove shaking teeth or attempt any procedures the bleeding can be profuse and the damage severe.

In case of trauma ice to freeze the blows and water to clean the wound will work best.

In the age of technology and information let's not fall prey to easily avoidable dental habits that harm you more than they help you.

Write to us or call us at 9209200024 if you have any queries.

Pyorrhoea is the disease of the gum which affects the soft tissue & bone surrounding the roots of the teeth and leads to pus formation and loosening of the teeth. Pyorrhoea term is usually used when the condition is too bad and the gums bleed spontaneously and multiple teeth are moving. In the early stages the disease if fully curable. You need to get your teeth cleaned, maintain a good oral hygiene as advised by your dentist after cleaning & start using a mouthwash. In some cases if the disease has progressed too far, gum surgery may be needed to eradicate the disease.

Visit your doctor (general practitioner) and take medicine for acid reflux. It is most likely causing the ulcers too. Once the acid reflux is under control, the ulcers will heal.

First of all, there will be no side effects/ poor esthetics after orthodontic treatment. Also orthodontic treatment you have two more options which will not affect the componeers. They are lingual braces and clear braces which can be used. So you need not worry about anything regarding after treatment effects. THANK YOU.

Consult an oral maxillofacial surgeon, but as far of now you can apply piroxicam gel on the area on the face in front of the ears twice daily. Also do some moist heat fomenation over the jaws by putting towel in lukewarm water ,squeezing it and applying moist heat over the jaws.

Try Amlexanox gel and Rexidine M forte gel alternatively 3-4 times a day until problem subsides. Since it is recurrent ulcers you need to visit a dentist for proper identification of local causes, factors which contributes in such ulcers. You may be prescribed multivitamins and minerals and oral prophylaxis for minimizing recurrences.

Hello Lybrate user, it is important to know if the wisdom tooth is in a favorable position to erupt or not. For this a radio-graph/x-ray is required. Depending on the position of the tooth, either the gum tissue surrounding the erupting tooth need to be removed /operculectomy or the tooth itself might need to be surgically extracted/removed. The cost for both the treatment option is different and variable. To know the exact details it is advisable to visit a Dentist at the earliest. Get well soon.

You may get white teeth upon dental consultation for sure. But kindly consider adjunct condition like-avoid smoking, tobacco (if taken, long term medicines, high level of water impurities etc etc. Bcz once you whiten your teeth if these things persist it may occur over time again.

Deposits over teeth surface is one of the main reason for fowl smell. The other possible reasons are keeping mouth dry for long. Constipation, any infection in mouth or even lungs could cause this.
