Infections that occur because of bacteria can be effectively treated with Getra 500 MG Capsule. The drug is an antibiotic which cures a number of bacterial infections that affect the skin, urinary tract, intestines, genitals, respiratory tract, lymph nodes and various other parts of the body. The drug is also useful in the treatment of acne and sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) like chlamydia, gonorrhea as well as syphilis. In cases of some patients who cannot be prescribed penicillin or any other antibiotic for the treatment of severe infections like anthrax and listeria, Getra 500 MG Capsule is prescribed instead.
The medicine should be taken exactly as prescribed by the doctor. Take it about an hour or 2 after you take your meal. The drug should not be consumed with milk or for that matter any other dairy products unless specifically advised by the doctor. This is primarily because dairy products make it difficult for the body to absorb Getra 500 MG Capsule. The drug will only treat bacterial infections, it cannot be taken for the treatment of viral infections like cold or flu.
Some facts should be kept in mind when taking this drug. For instance, children below the age of 8 years cannot be given this medicine. Pregnant women should discuss the pros and cons of taking Getra 500 MG Capsule with their doctor. This is because the drug can be harmful for the fetus. It may also lead to discolored teeth in the child which will be permanent. Lactating mothers should also take their doctors advice before using Getra 500 MG Capsule. It is also important that you throw away expired Getra 500 MG Capsule, as consumption of the drug can lead to severe kidney problems.

The antibiotic tetracycline causes gray teeth in children whose teeth are still developing. Antibacterial mouthwashes that contain chlorhexidine or cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Some antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and blood pressure medications cause tooth stains, like iron and excess fluoride. If bleaching doesn't help, ask your dentist about dental bonding, in which tooth-colored material is applied to teeth.

WHAT IS IT ?
Your teeth can become discolored by stains on the surface or by changes inside the tooth. There are three main types of tooth discoloration:
Symptoms include stains on the enamel. They can range from white streaks to yellow tints or brown spots and pits. If the enamel has worn away, and dentin is showing through, you may notice a yellow tint.
No special tests are needed. A dentist or other dental professional can diagnose tooth discoloration by looking at the teeth.
Some tooth discoloration can be removed with professional cleaning. An example would be the stains caused by coffee. Many stains are permanent, however. Teeth sometimes can be whitened with a bleaching gel. In some cases, if the discoloration is severe, a crown or veneer may be required to cover it.
Brushing your teeth after every meal will help to prevent some stains. Dentists recommend that you rinse your mouth with water after having wine, coffee or other drinks or foods that can stain your teeth. Regular cleanings by a dental hygienist also will help to remove surface stains.
Intrinsic stains that are caused by damage to a nerve or blood vessel in a tooth sometimes can be prevented. You may need to have root canal treatment to remove the inner part of the tooth (the pulp) before it has a chance to decay and darken. However, teeth that have root canal treatment may darken anyway.
To prevent intrinsic stains in children, avoid too much early exposure to fluorides. Once the enamel is formed, fluoride will not discolor teeth.
TreatmentMany extrinsic stains caused by food and drink can be removed by regular professional cleanings and home care. Good home care includes brushing, flossing and rinsing after meals.
Discoloration often can be removed by applying a bleaching agent to the tooth enamel. One technique is called "power bleaching." With this method, the dentist applies a light-activated bleaching gel. It causes the teeth to get significantly whiter in about 30 to 45 minutes. Several follow-up treatments may be needed, or take-home bleaching trays may be provided.
It's also possible to remove discoloration at home. You will use a bleaching gel and a mouth guard given to you by your dentist. The bleaching gels designed for use at home aren't as strong as those applied by your dentist. This means that the process takes longer — usually two to four weeks.
You also can buy whitening products over the counter. They contain a weaker bleach than the products you can get from your dentist. The whitening agent is applied as a gel placed in a mouthpiece or as a strip that sticks to your teeth. Over-the-counter mouthpieces fit less securely than the kind you get from your dentist, but they will lighten your teeth over time.
Whitening toothpastes may remove minor stains. They do not actually change the overall color of your teeth.
If your tooth has darkened after a root canal, bleaching the enamel won't help. Your dentist can apply a bleaching material to the inside of the tooth, or you may consider a crown or veneer.
Bleaching will not lighten some stains, such as tetracycline stains. In this case, your dentist may recommend covering the discolored areas. This also may be useful when the tooth is chipped or badly damaged.
A tooth can be covered with a color-matched composite bonding material. Another option is to get veneers. These are thin ceramic shells that cover the outer surfaces of the teeth.
When To Call a Professional
Tooth discoloration is mainly a cosmetic problem. Visit a dentist if you're unhappy with how your teeth look. Any change in a child's normal tooth color should be evaluated by a dentist.
The prognosis is very good for extrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains may be more difficult or take longer to remove.
