I am feeling cold in my teeth when I take cold water, so is there any problem in my teeth?

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
It can be sensitivity or due to caries. Kindly get yourself checked from a dentist as looking at the condition of the tooth can the required diagnosis and treatment be planned. If it is sensitivity then you can use thermoseal rx toothpaste twice daily for 15 days. In case of caries kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth.

My teeth are sensitive and whenever I drink cold or hot things, my teeth starts to pain.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
My teeth are sensitive and whenever I drink cold or hot things, my teeth starts to pain.
Teeth sensitivity is a result of loss of outer most layer (enamel) of teeth. That can be due to: - tooth grinding - acidic beverages (such as soda) that cause enamel erosion and dentin exposure. - brushing with a very abrasive toothpaste, brushing incorrectly and/or brushing more than three times a day could result in a loss of enamel. - a chipped or fractured tooth may expose the dentin. Here are few steps to avoid sensitivity of teeth: - practice good oral hygiene. - use a sensitivity toothpaste like sensodyne. - don't brush too hard. - use a softer toothbrush. - take care while consuming acidic foods. - use fluoridated dental products. - avoid grinding your teeth. - see your dentist regularly for professional tooth cleaning, dental care recommendations and advice on treating your sensitive teeth.

7 Benefits of Chewing Sugar-Free Gum

7 Benefits of Chewing Sugar-Free Gum

Chewing gum may be made popular as a style statement in the recent past, but in reality, it is as ancient as the Aztecs and the Mayans, who had the habit of chewing gum or bark. Over the years, numerous studies have been conducted to deep-dive into its benefits, and it has been found to be very beneficial.
With the recent fad of foods going sugar-free, chewing gums also left the sugar in them out.

For routine regular oral care, it is advisable to brush and rinse after each meal. However, in cases when one is not at home, this becomes a practical challenge. A good option is to chew a sugar-free gum after each meal, so that decay and gum disease are reduced to a large extent. This can be supplemented with a brushing or flossing as soon as it becomes available.

In addition to avoiding sugar load, there are other benefits of chewing sugar-free gum as listed below:

  • Kills microorganisms: It is believed that chewing sugar-free gum for about 10 minutes can kill up to 100 million bacteria in the mouth.
  • Stimulates production of saliva: The jaw movement that happens with chewing gum increases saliva production and flow. This helps in diluting the acids in the mouth, flushing out plaque, and removing food particles that are lodged in various areas.
  • Prevents decay: With improved salivary flow, the chances of dental decay are delayed. Studies comparing pH of the mouth before and after chewing gum have confirmed that sugar-free gums reduce the acidic level of the mouth, which is conducive for tooth decay. There is no actual sugar in the gum, thereby one of the factors required for decay is eliminated.
  • Xylitol: One of the main ingredients in sugar-free gums, it is shown to reduce the amount of bacteria that lead to decay in the mouth. This is an ingredient from fruits and vegetables and so good for the overall health.
  • Improves digestion: As is well known, the first step of digestion begins in the mouth. With improved salivary flow and increased chewing, food is digested to a greater extent leading to reduced incidence of acid reflux.
  • Boosts logic and memory: Chewing gum stimulates blood flow to the brain and stimulates the neural pathway. This has multiple benefits including improved memory, improved alertness and logical skills, reduced anxiety, and improved learning and memory.
  • Saves money: With all these benefits, especially reduced incidence of gum disease and tooth decay, it is estimated that a lot of money spent on dental treatments is saved.

So, the next time you see the sugar-free gum at the billing counter, there is no need to think too much about it, go for it!!

Age 43, front upper two teeth are high and big. So i am not freely smile. What do i do?

BDS
Dentist,
You can get orthodontic treatment to get them aligned properly. If you don't have time or are uncomfortable wearing braces then you may even go for crowns/ veneers with or without root canal depending on the severity of the problem.

I can not smile because of yellow teeth just want them not sparking like diamond but normal white.

I can not smile because of yellow teeth just want them not sparking like diamond but normal white.
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

I very often get mouth ulcers. Which remain for like one or 2 weeks by themselves. I have tried so many things, nothing works. I showed it to many doctors, finally one doctor said it's due to anemia. Is it true?

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Ya, it's true. If I suffer from regular bouts of ulcer on your tongue or on your mouth, it can be due to deficiency of essential nutrients like iron, folic acid and vitamin b-12. This condition exists when one's body is unable to produce intrinsic factor.

Hi, it wil require 12 - 18 months of treatment with braces. If space is between all the front teeth then it is a simple braces case but diagnosis becomes highly important here, if space is only between two front teeth. In that case than you might be having upper frenum problem or sometimes their is an extra supernumary teeth in between your front two teeth that does not come out and with pressure causes the condition, in that case first get the cause of your condition first checked and then go ahead with braces treatment for a beautiful smile.

Dentist,
What I want to do when I got teeth ache ?
Hi You need to go for proper investigation and diagnosis to rule out the cause of pain, after that treatment plan can be decided. Pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, tooth abcess, gum disease, and fracture of tooth. For pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.

There is a pain in some nerve/muscle in and around my right side of jaw joint near ear. It was preceded by slight headache for two days. This pain extends into the inner right ear also. Initially, I apprehended it to be wisdom tooth but its just an apprehension. There is no pain in the Gums, though. It hurts in attempting to open the full jaw and chewing food. And yes, I keep up regular brushing.

Hello lybrate-user At this age and as you said the patient is hypertensive and having pus, it is very important to discharge all the pus and treat the tooth weather extraction or root canal treatment whatever will be necessary. So my advice would be to visit a dentist instead of taking tablets right away.
