I have yellow teeth but love white teeth. Please suggest home remedies to get as I like.

Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If you r not happy with your teeth shade later, you can get bleaching done by dentist which'll lighten your teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively you can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth.

When I brush my teeth blood start coming out from gums. This happens only while brushing teeth.
There are so many causes of bleeding gums - - brushing too hard - poor oral hygiene. - vitamin deficiency - taking blood thinners or other medications - bleeding or clotting disorders - mouth sores - other medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, leukemia or scurvy few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - 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 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.

Accumulation of plaque usually leads to tooth decay and gum disease. This can be prevented by flossing on a daily basis.

No such any homeremedies do effect fluorine content in teeth bt ofcourse it can be stopped from further increasing by keeping it mouth clean brushing 2 times alwys gargil after any eating it even after drinking beverages like juices coldrinks and try alwys to drink purified water and ofcourse you can use mouthwash 2-3 times a day for 15 days and make sure to go for scaling once to your nearest dental clinic.

Fluoride for Teeth - 4 Myths and Facts About it

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Fluoride for Teeth - 4 Myths and Facts About it

Fluoride is a chemical naturally present in water and in some foods and is essential for healthy bone growth.  A few decades ago, fluoride was discovered to have anti-cariogenic (against tooth decay) properties and slowly gained popularity. While most believe that fluoride can do wonders for your teeth and help you get rid of all problems, it is not true.  There is only so much that fluoride can do and there are also undesirable effects from it.

Read on to know some myths about fluoride versus the actual facts.

Myth: Drinking fluoridated water can lead to fluorosis, which produces brown, pitted teeth, which are weak and aesthetically unappealing.

Fact:  People develop fluorosis only when the water contains excessive amounts of fluorine.  The currently defined permissible level is about 0.7 parts per million. At this level, fluoride provides the maximum protection against caries, at the same time not leading to fluorosis.  In some cases, mild fluorosis can be seen, which only produces white speckles on the tooth and not brown pits.  These teeth have a higher resistance to decay than people drinking non-fluoridated water.

Myth: Fluoride is a forced medication

Fact: Fluoride is a chemical with special benefits to the bones and teeth.  In cases where the water does not contain sufficient quantities of fluoride or where the person is prone for decay, adding fluoride will provide the extra level of protection against caries.

Myth: Adding fluoride to the drinking water leads to various other medical conditions (heart disease, cancer, etc.)

Fact: Various studies have shown that this is not true. In fact, fluoride has been endorsed as safe to use and does not contribute to any diseases like heart disease, cancer, autism, or kidney problems.

Myth: Fluoride is not safe for children.

Fact: Children need a good amount of fluoride in their tooth forming years. This produces teeth that are more resistant to decay and are stronger generally. If the regular supply of water does not contain sufficient fluoride, then the child can be given supplements in the form of fluoridated toothpastes and gel applications at the clinic to provide the anti-cariogenic benefit.

Myth: If there is enough water in the fluoride, then there is no worry of tooth decay.

Fact: Fluoride only makes the teeth resistant to easy decay, it does not protect from decay completely.  Proper oral hygiene habits (brushing, flossing, rinsing, dental visits) are essential to ensure that there is no plaque accumulation and food deposits to prevent caries.  Fluoride is not a replacement for these practices.

Like with anything else, even excessive fluoride is not good for health, therefore the recommended level is 0.7 ppm.  Ensure fluoride supplements are used only after a discussion with your dentist.

If the tooth crack is more and it is present in between the teeth if 3/4 th area is lost than it should be removed if it is less than 3/4th area then it can be treated with root canal treatment and crown is placed on it for protection.

Dear, We can understand your concerns. If you want a less expensive option - one can go for a remoavble partial denture (RPD). If you want something which works as fixed - one can even think of giving a bridge.

Hello Lybrate user. Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment.

Should I drink water after or before brushing teeth when I wake up? please give reasons also.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Should I drink water after or before brushing teeth when I wake up? please give reasons also.
As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160 ml glasses of water. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours. Drinking water before you eat anything can help purify your body's internal system. In fact, this can aid in colon cleansing, so that the nutrients that enter your body will be absorbed better. When you drink water early in the morning, this encourages the production of hematopoiesis, which is also called new blood. There is evidence proving that drinking water on an empty stomach can be amazingly helpful in treating numerous diseases, including: headache, pain in any part of the body, cardiovascular disorders and diseases, tachycardia, epilepsy, increased blood fat levels, bronchitis, asthma, tuberculosis, meningitis, kidney .Water is very good for you. There is always a reason behind you drink water before you brush your teeth. It is not considered as you drink water before you brush your teeth it should be like you should have it just after getting up from your bed after a long night sleep. If you do this than 1. It will keep an acidity away 2. It will help to reduce the constipation problem & will clean your stomach 3. It will also help to reduce the acne or pimples on your face if you have & help to improve your skin 4. It will help to get all the heat out from your body through urine 5. It will give you the healthier & fresh day than ever you have had till now. Try having water kept in copper vessel for the whole night.
