- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

I am on prednisolone 30 mg every other day and Azathioprine 50 mg Morning and 100 mg evening to manage polymyositis. I am suffering from cavity and pain in my first molar right lower jaw since 15 for fifteen days and radiate to my right ear and feeling constant pain inside my ear. I took paracetamol 500 mg and then acetofenac 100 mg for pain at night and 100 mg acetofenac in the morning to get relief. I noticed some blood inside of my ear at night which I cleaned with cotton buds and there is no more blood noticed after that but I felt great after that. Now I want to know if I can take some antibiotics to fight this infection if yes, then what antibiotic should I take, what should be the appropriate dose, what should be the frequency and duration of the treatment along with painkillers.

You may have got ear infection which is aggravated or may be overlapped with your tooth related pain. You have to be sure about your problem so that proper treatment can be sought without any delay. You need to visit an ENT specialist first then to a dentist. Tooth related pain can be corrected based on 3 treatment options, that is restoration/ fillings, RCT or extraction. Improper use of antibiotics can lead to more severe infections which will cost more time energy and money. So act wisely.

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.

Hello, bad breath could be because of various reasons like cold, acidity, fasting, not drinking enough water, not eating for long intervals, pungent food, etc. For acidity you can do baking soda in water rinses. Drink plenty of water. Rinse after every meal.

When the tooth is too much decayed, we do the root canal treatment. Pus coming out means there is lot of infection at the base of the tooth due to decay. Dicoloration is because of the dead pulp in the tooth. You have to take antibiotics along with rct.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits in between your teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. As a home remedy, you can apply baking soda or strawberry crush on teeth for sometime. This will help to whiten your teeth by a few shades. You can also visit a dentist and get it checked. You can ask for bleaching or whitening procedures.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Hi, cyst is a delayed response to chronic infection or trauma to jaw bone and teeth. You need to get x-ray done and possibly cyst needs removal by small surgery. Then only teeth affected can be restored with rct and capping. Please visit oral surgeon or dental specialist for surgical removal of cyst.

It is possible to recover from having loose teeth. However, you don't have time to waste! loose teeth or teeth shifting around in the mouth is a sure sign that gum disease has been active in the mouth for years. The teeth become loose when the bone and ligament that holds them in place is being destroyed. The truth is that if a person with loose teeth doesn't change their course, their teeth are going to drop out of their mouth one at a time. Gum disease generally develops because of improper brushing and flossing habits, although underlying medical conditions may have a correlation to greater incidence. The bacteria that are found in the mouth as a result of these poor habits begin to affect the surrounding bone and tissues below the gumline. Consult a periodontist at the earliest.

Cosmetic Dentistry

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry primarily involves improving a person's smile and facial appearance. It could involve the teeth, gums, cheeks, lips, or the bite of the patient. Accordingly, a change can be produced in the color, position, size or shape of the teeth, alignment of the teeth, contouring of the smile, etc. The end result is always a better facial appearance and improved confidence level of the patient.

Some common examples of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Teeth whitening: There are very few people who are happy with the color of their teeth. Everybody wants whiter teeth and therefore go for options like bleaching. This can be done either in the dental office or done at home. A word of caution though - go for teeth whitening only after the consultation with a dentist.
  • Veneers, crowns: Just as the color of the teeth, the shape of the teeth also leaves a lot to be desired for almost everybody. Veneers are applied on the teeth after removing a thin layer of tooth structure. Minor reshaping and contouring of the tooth can also be done, especially to improve appearance in the front teeth.
  • Tooth contouring/shaping: The edges of the teeth can be smoothened by mere shaping or contouring. There is no extra material that is added to the tooth here. In some cases, a thin layer of resin may be bonded to the tooth if required.
  • Bridges: In cases the adjacent teeth shape, size, or color mismatch, then bridges can be done to even out the difference and produce a more corrected appearance.
  • Braces: Braces are a big hit as they help correct misaligned teeth. However, the next step with invisible braces and ceramic braces is another step towards moving away from the traditional metal braces, which itself was not cosmetically received.
  • Onlays and Inlays: Improper tooth shapes can be corrected with parts of the teeth that either replace only a small decayed portion or the entire crown portion to produce a more pleasing effect.
  • Implants: Though fixed bridges do a very good job at replacing lost teeth, implants go to the next level in terms of the aesthetic replacement.
  • Gingivoplasty: In cases where the gums have black spots, are too short, or are too long, the gums can be shaped to provide a better teeth visibility. The gums can also be sculpted to produce a more appealing gum line that shows off the teeth to give a more harmonious smile.
  • Bite correction: In addition to braces, in some cases, bite correction may be required to smoothen out a sharp cusp or reduce the prominence of the canine.

With a number of corrections possible, cosmetic dentistry is here to stay - just as the drive to look good.

Toothbrush Vs. Electric Toothbrush - What's a Better Pick?

Toothbrush Vs. Electric Toothbrush - What's a Better Pick?

Manual Toothbrush vs. Electric Toothbrush

In a world where every little thing is being automated, why must the activity of brushing your teeth be left behind? Well unless scientists come up with a technique that entirely renders brushing your teeth unnecessary, the only thing we can rely on as of today is easing the activity. And that has been done by bringing in the electronic toothbrushes in the market.

The manual toothbrush was invented in the 1930s. Several upgrades and updates were added to the toothbrush, and in the 1990s, the electronic toothbrush was introduced. Is it better than the manual toothbrush, or is the vintage route more beneficial, let's take a look:

  • Cost: Electronic toothbrushes cost significantly more than manual toothbrushes. A manual toothbrush could cost on an average Rs. 30-Rs.40, whereas an electronic toothbrush costs close to Rs.400-Rs.500.
  • Features: Unless you have a set timer in front of you, the time you take to brush your teeth manually solely depends on you. Electronic toothbrushes come with a built in timer which you can set at 2 minutes or more (2 minutes being the appropriate time considered for effective cleaning of teeth). This built-in timer saves you from relying on your guesswork and effectively helps you clean your teeth according to the recommended timings.
  • Convenience: Manual toothbrushes are convenient to carry while traveling. They have negligible weight and can fit into any travel pouch easily. Electronic toothbrushes, on the other hand, are heavy in weight and need a battery charger to be carried along, which makes them a pain to carry around.
  • Effort: Electronic toothbrushes significantly reduce your effort put into the activity. All you need to do is tilt your toothbrush to a 45-degree angle, and let the toothbrush do all the work. Whereas, manual toothbrushes, require you to carefully use proper brushing techniques to get the best results and thus require more effort.
  • Options: Manual toothbrushes come with a huge variety of bristles, heads, colors etc. For sensitive gums, one can pick a toothbrush with soft bristles; for kids, one can pick a toothbrush with a smaller head to fit into their mouths. Electronic toothbrushes, as of today do not come in a variety of sizes or bristle types. Thus, the choice and utility are restricted.


And the most important factor-

Oral health maintenance: Electronic toothbrushes are known to give better results in comparison to manual toothbrushes when it comes to removing plaque and gingivitis. Also in the case of children when you cannot ensure whether they are brushing their teeth properly, electronic toothbrushes come to the rescue.

Though electronic toothbrushes give better results with lesser effort, manual toothbrushes have their own conveniences, too.

Even after proper brushing, if you are having the problem of bad breath, you might be suffering from vitamin c deficiency. Vitamin c deficiency leads to spongy and bleeding gums. Even though the bleeding is not visible, there could be a micro-vascular bleeding which is not seen with naked eyes. There is a secondary bacterial infection in the gums which leads to the problem of bad breath. You should take citrus fruits like oranges, lemon, etc. It is good if you take an orange a day for at least 15 days and let me know the result. Hope it helps.

It's good that you have decided to see a dentist soon as your present dental condition warrants prompt dental care. Until you see your dentist, to manage this acute and severe pain do the following: Take Combiflam tablet 3 times a day after every meal. Combiflam is a combination drug containing ibuprofen 400 mg and paracetamol 325 mg, therefore it works by synergistic action of both the drugs to relieve pain and inflammation. Also get Listerine mouthwash and immediately start using it twice daily, that should keep the infection in check for a while which will be helpful in controlling pain. Also apply ice packs on the outside of your cheek. Avoid very hot, cold, and sweet foods and drinks.
