Hi, please do not ignore if there is pain in tooth often. Get your dental checkup done from your dentist. Sometimes its just sensitivity because the decay of tooth is in initial stages that can be restored with normal tooth filling.

Go and get consulted from a dentist. May be you need scaling done. If no dental problem then later consult an ayurvedic physician.

My Orthodontic treatment is going on. First the dentist charged Rs. 15,000 for the braces (removable metal plates) and then Rs. 1,500 every month for consultation. And now he said that he will convert that braces into retainer and I will have to give around Rs. 3,000 for material cost. Other than this for Metal filling (cavity) and scaling he charged about Rs. 5,000 I want to know whether he is charging more than the actual cost.

madam, the charges varies from place to place and from dentists to dentists. Also the cost is calculated on the amount of materials used. As the cost for ortho materials are more so the treatment charges are more.

No Brushing Off: 5 Common Brushing Mistakes You Make Daily

Dentist, Udaipur
No Brushing Off: 5 Common Brushing Mistakes You Make Daily

While you might think that you are on track by brushing twice a day, but just doing that may not be enough. If your technique is not right or if you are using the wrong type of toothbrush, you are making your teeth vulnerable to infections and decay.

Here are the common brushing mistakes that can harm your teeth:

1. You do not brush long enough

The single most common mistake that people make while brushing is not brushing long enough. If you want to thoroughly clean your teeth, you should brush for almost 2 minutes. Experts suggest that most of the people with gum diseases did not brush their teeth for sufficient amount of time. Try using an electric toothbrush with a timer to ensure that you brush for 2 minutes.

2. You miss the important sites

Missing important areas of your mouth while brushing your teeth is also a common brushing mistake. Brushing should involve devoting an equal amount of time to all areas, targeting the inside, outside and chewing surfaces of your teeth, along with your gums, tongue and the roof of your mouth. Most people do not think consciously while brushing, making it easy to skip the vulnerable sites.

3. You use too much of paste

Using too much of toothpaste will not make your teeth cleaner. On the contrary, it might make you brush for a shorter span since too much of foam in your mouth can make you uncomfortable. For children, a small swipe on a toothbrush is enough and for adults, a pea-sized or marble-sized amount is more than sufficient.

4. You brush too hard

You may think that the more pressure you apply while brushing, the better it is. But that is not the case. Aggressive brushing can actually cause the gum tissue to come away from your teeth, leading to swollen gums and even bleeding. It can also result in tooth sensitivity or even loose teeth. Experts recommend that you should use a soft bristled toothbrush. Soft bristles tend to be gentle on your teeth and will flex more under the gum line, which leads to a more thorough cleaning.

5. Your technique is wrong

Brushing your teeth is not a race that you need to finish in time. By taking long, crude and haphazard sweeps back and forth, you are only going to harm your teeth. Concentrate instead on small areas at a time and brush gently in a circular motion. When you are at the gum line, remember to keep your bristles at an angle of 45 degrees and always brush away from the gums.

So, it is high time you change these brushing habits and adopt healthy dental practices for plaque free and healthy gums and teeth. Stay healthy, stay happy!

I have mouth ulcers and it happened very frequently. I have taken folicacid becasole but no work. Advise what I do?

MDS - Oral Medicine and Radiology, BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Hi, folic acid and b complex will help only if vitamin deficiency is the cause. There are other causes of mouth ulcers like stress, constipation, trauma, food allergies, etc. You should visit an oral medicine specialist for complete management. Meanwhile, apply kenacort 0.1% oral gel on the ulcers for relief in burning and pain.

I have inflammation in my mouth. Now my teeth have become super sensitive and inflammation is not going sing two weeks.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
I have inflammation in my mouth. Now my teeth have become super sensitive and inflammation is not going sing two weeks.
inflammation can be due to caries also, Possible causes for sensitivity include: Tooth decay (cavities) Fractured teeth Worn fillings Gum disease Worn tooth enamel Exposed tooth root In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth—the part above the gum line. Under the gum line a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin. Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity. Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments

Teeth problem. I have some big teeth and yellow. But I think its not pyria. Please Help me.
Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need braces & deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. 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. . DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. HOME BLEACH FOR THE TEETH Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

a filling is done in the tooth when there is a damage to the tooth by means of caries (decay) or physical damage. Drilling is done to remove the decayed portion of your tooth and a filling is done to restore the same. The entire procedure should not affect your jaw placement or positioning in any way.

Some oral diseases do not get detected until they reach their mature stage. Visiting a dentist at regular intervals would mean keeping constant tabs on your oral health.

About Gingivitis

MDS - Periodontics, Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Chandigarh

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease which occurs because of the inflammation of the gums. It can easily be reversed with daily brushing and flossing and getting dental cleaning done regularly.

Hi. The condition you are referring to is understood by me as - nursing bottle caries. It occurs because of constant bottle feeding and not cleaning the teeth after the feed. This causes the teeth to undergo decay very fast. Clean the teeth of your child atleast with a wet cotton after every bottle feed. If possible, try to avoid bottle feed atleast reduce the number of times feeding with the bottle. It can definitely be treated. Visit your nearest dentist and get it done immediately to avoid complications of pain and infection.

Kindly consult an Oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, TMJ open & closed mouth, MRI) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Avoid yawning. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. You may consult me in person.

You need to wear retainers for 9 months post braces 3 to 6 months 24 hours that is to be removed only while eating food .rest you need to wear it on regular basis. N last three months only at night .teeth might have shifted from its original place that's why. You might need to wear retainers again and post that you might need to come for check up.
