My half tooth is broken and stuck, and it's been more than a year is it serious problem.
Dear Lybrate user, Broken and stuck tooth fragments are indeed a serious problem. Your broken tooth part needs to be removed and the tooth that remains embedded in the gums should be saved if possible. Please visit dentist and get the broken stuck tooth fragment removed and the rest of the tooth treated.

I am suffering from bad breathing. Had visited aiims and they did scaling and treatment and but treatment lasted for 8-9 months. Then again I am facing bad breathing with bleeding. Pls suggest some mouthwash and permanent treatment. M just done with scaling.

In normal healthy individuals it is recommended to get the scaling and polishing done in approximately every 6 months duration. In severe cases (consider yourself among them) a more frequent visit required (say every 2-3 months) until problem subsides. A periodontist is an expert in this regard. Many times underlying diseases related to gastric, respiratory problems, diabetes or general illnessare ignored by general practitioners which often contributes to bad breath problem. So a clear understanding about your problem will definitely fix your trouble.

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.

Go for an ayurvedic treatment. Panchkarma will help him a lot. U haven't mentioned his age n weight n height. Regular vasties in Ayurveda will help him. Give him lukewarm water. Avoid curd instead give buttermilk with butter removed+ pinch of roasted jeera powder after lunch. Focus on veggies like lauki touri tinda parwal etc try to make it soupy.

Diabetes And Oral Health Care!

If you are a diabetic patient and your blood glucose levels are poorly controlled, you are more likely to develop serious gum disease and lose more teeth than non-diabetics. Like all other infections, serious gum diseases may contribute towards rise in blood sugar and may make diabetes harder to control.
Other oral problems associated with diabetes include - candidiasis (thrush), and dry mouth which can cause soreness of mouth, oral ulcers, various infections, teeth cavities and bad breath.

Prevention
First of all, control your blood glucose level by exercise, diet, oral medicines or insulin. Then, take good care of your teeth and gums, along with regular checkups every six months. To control candidiasis, use candid mouth paint and maintain good diabetic control, avoid smoking and, if you wear dentures, remove and clean dentures daily. Good blood glucose control can also help prevent or relieve dry mouth caused by diabetes. Use chlorhexidine mouthwash for 15 days and continue with diluted listerine mouthwash for months. It will prevent bad breath problem.

Dear Lybrate user, tooth extraction in no way has any harmful effect on your memory or eye sight. Please don't rely on google information. It's a myth that tooth extraction can have an effect o any other part of the human body. Stay relaxed.

How can I get rid of tummy fat without dieting and how can I get white sparkling teeth?
Kindly consult a physician & a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

Having some problem with my TMJ. Problem in opening mouth fully. Is it TMD? Whom should I consult.

Having some problem with my TMJ. Problem in opening mouth fully. Is it TMD? Whom should I consult.
Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, tmj open & closed mouth) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. Advise mouth opening exercise & side to side movement for the jaw muscles or the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and painkillers. For people who grind their teeth or clench their jaw, a bite-appliance may be made which corrects the way in which the jaw works and reduces the stresses and loads on it. This can be disposed of when normal function is restored. As oral & maxillo-facial surgeon, may be required to perform surgery on the tmj.

Hi sir, please consult a dentist but the pain might be due to improper brushing technique. Use a ultra soft bristle brush and brush for 2-3 mins only. Do not brush hard as it might damage your gums.

Hello, swelling and bleeding from gums could be because of deposists on your teeth or food lodged between your teeth, visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day, rinse after every meal and floss regularly.

Mateen Anjum you are having bleeding gums since last ten days . . bleeding gums can be due to gingivitis . . take tab celin 500 once a day . visit dental surgeon for checkup and for bleeding from gums you need to take care of teeth and maintain good oral hygiene, like brushing your teeth twice a day with colgate fresh mint tooth paste ,regular rinse with Mouthwashes (listerine )after meals .
