Excess saliva having saliva secretion is a normal body mechanism. There's nothing to worry about it. One good thing you should know about saliva that most people don't know is its a natural antibiotic produced in our body. It contains digestive juices also which hepls in a better digestion process. We usually consider saliva as a irritting thing when we get up in the morning and we spit it out with gargles. Instead of spitting it out we should swallow that saliva which in turn plays an important role in terms of digestion as well as a immunity booster. And having much saliva secretion also keeps our teeth clean which again keeps our mouth cavities free. So having much saliva secretion is a good thing rather than irritating. For bad odour: 2- scaling first of all undergo scaling (cleaning of teeth) by a dentist - use proper brushing technique. - brush twice a day which is most important (at night specifically just before sleep and avoid any food or liquid except water when you finish your brush at night) - after each meal (i. E breakfast, lunch, dinner and any time when you take snacks) rub your finger on all tooth surfaces inside and outside and than do forcefull gargles 2-3 times. Jay swaminarayan.

From past week something weird happed in my mouth. I'm enable to eat, the upper palate, chick n even toung is acting red in color, i'm finding hard to swallow. How can I get relief from this?

Tooth Erosion - 9 Ways You Can Prevent it

Tooth Erosion - 9 Ways You Can Prevent it

Maintaining good oral hygiene is the key for enhanced gum and dental health. Tooth erosion is characterised by decay of the outer and inner parts of the teeth. It occurs when certain sugar containing foods such as milk, candy and cakes leave behind residual quantities, thus causing small food particles to get stuck to and remain in the teeth. These are then digested by the bacteria in the mouth and converted to acids. The acids in combination with saliva form a layer called plaque that causes tooth erosion.

To prevent tooth erosion, you can employ these simple methods:

  1. Regular flossing: Flossing is an often neglected aspect of dental hygiene. Flossing helps in removing food residues stuck between the teeth that your toothbrush cannot clean. Use proper technique while flossing as improper technique can damage your gums.
  2. Brushing twice a day: You should brush at least twice a day with toothpaste that contains fluoride. If possible, brush regularly after eating a meal.
  3. Eat well balanced meals: Eat well balanced meals for your gums to receive proper nourishment. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet as they are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. These antioxidants and vitamins help maintain overall gum and dental health.
  4. Fluoridated water: Drink fluoridated water, as it helps in preventing tooth erosion.
  5. Use Mouthwash regularly: Use an antiseptic mouthwash to keep your mouth bacteria free. Bacteria in your mouth can lead to rapid tooth erosion.
  6. Rinse your mouth: Rinse your mouth with water after every meal. Rinsing helps in removing food particles from your mouth that may contribute to tooth erosion.
  7. Avoid junk food: Avoid snacking on junk foods as they contain hidden sugars that can increase your risks of tooth erosion. Avoid sugar based drinks as they can harm your teeth and cause cavities.
  8. Dental sealants: A sealant is a coating that is applied on the tooth to prevent it from getting affected by plaque. They usually last for 8-10 years after which they need to be replaced.
  9. Visit the dentist regularly: Visit the dentist on a regular basis for check-ups as any underlying issue that can create potential problems in the future may need to be resolved.

Don't rush, when you brush. For maximum results, brush your teeth for at least 2 to 3 minutes.

In order to keep our teeth strong and safe what care should I take and which toothpaste should I use?

Hello , twice daily brushing and flossing is absolutely essential for proper oral care. Besides brushing and flossing you should rinse your mouth with plain water after eating and drinking. It helps in removal of all food debris which is the main cause of tooth decay & gum problems. Plus you can use mouth rinses for additional benefit which helps in reducing bacterial count in your mouth. And finally visit your dentist on regular basis (i. E. Once in 6 months) for prevention and early treatment of the underlying problems.

Most probably there is food lodgement between teeth which is leading to bleeding. Brush well & rinse after every meal. You can massage you gums at that place by stolin gumpaint for 2-3 minutes

Hello, you can do salt water rinses but this will give you a temporary relief. Pain could be because of cavity or infection to roots. Visit a dentist and get it checked. If there is a cavity get it filled or if there is an infection get it treated.

If you hav developed pain in that rct treated tooth then you hav to visit a dentist, do xray of that tooth. If everything comes fine, then only immediately go for capping. If the treated tooth comes problematic, then go for retreatment or extraction followed by capping or implant.

Any erupting wisdom tooth will push its way out through gum and causes extra tissue to form around the tooth. When chewing, this tissue is trapped between upper and lower teeth which causes pain due to biting that extra gum. You can do warm salt water gargling. But its very important to get it checked by the dentist and take appropriate antibiotic to prevent complications.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to be on soft, cold n bland diet for 24 hours atleast, avoid smoking, eat curd rice sort of foods and for rest ask your dentist who extracted your tooth as he would know the extent of precautions you need to take.
