I have fluorosis marks on teeth. Planning to go for crowns on front two upper teeth And composite veeners for remaining. Advise if its good or not.

Composite veeners wil get discolor after some years and it will break if you bite hard substances with front teeth hence better go for zirconia or all ceramic crowns itself. If it is a small fluorosis marking you can go for composite veenering ceramic crowns wont get stains and it will be like that itself as like the first without any discoloration after some years.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

It depends upon the location and depth of decay. Otherwise esthetically and strength wise composite fillings are superb.

U definetly require braces treatment for your overbite correction. Fixing braces on top of crown is not a prob as different bonding methods r available to bond on crown. Invisalign technique helps conceal your braces but regular ones r much better in controlling all kinds of teeth movement.

Drink lots of water. And if that doesnt help kindly visit the dentist and ask the dentist for gc tooth mousse. Which would have to be applied everyday on your teeth. Everyday before you sleep or any time of the day. It will help in keeping your mouth moist.

Ways to prevent bad breath Ways to prevent bad breath Prevent bad breath by brushing your teeth and flossing twice a day. Brush your tongue/try using a tongue scraper, to remove any trapped food and plaque caught in the tiny hair-like fibers on the tongue.  Finish off your brushing by rinsing thoroughly with water or mouthwash. Bad breath can be prevented by the treatment of dental problems such as tooth decay, gum abscesses, and abscessed teeth. Place a few drops of tee tree oil or peppermint oil on your tongue or use the oil on your toothbrush along with your toothpaste. Quit smoking, as this is the only way to eliminate bad breath from the use of cigarettes, which is also responsible for periodontal disease. Avoid foods known to cause bad breath such as garlic, onions, cabbage, certain spices, and coffee. A dry mouth, also known as xerostomia, is a major factor when it comes to bad breath. Sip water, chew sugar-free gum to help produce more saliva. If you are using breath fresheners on a regular basis, consider choosing one that contains xylitol, a sweetener that some studies have shown to reduce cavities. Avoid products that contain sugar to prevent the accumulation of plaque. Occasionally use a mixture of 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% water, as a mouth rinse. Hydrogen peroxide will help kill the bacteria that cause bad breath. Prevent bad breath by visit your dentist on a regular basis (every six months or as indicated by your dentist) for a complete examination of your teeth and gums and thorough cleaning.

Ulcers in mouth could be due to many reasons. Most common is stress and gastric upset. So monitor your food habits and stress levels. On medication level you can apply some topical medicaments and multivitamins for temporarily relief and drink plenty of water. Inbox me for detailed medications.

Please get a round of scaling and polishing done by your dentist. Once that has been done, you can maintain your teeth just by regular brushing etc. If you are still not satisfied after the procedure, you can consider whitening (even home bleaching options are available for this).

Brushing twice a day is just not enough, you need to use dental floss and mouthwash daily to clean the interdental spaces.

Visit your dentist as soon as you start feeling the food lodgment in between or inside the tooth, there may be a periodontal problem or cavity inside the tooth. Get your professional cleaning done by the dentist on the regular basis.

9 Tips to Look After Your Teeth

BDS

Brush at least twice a day. The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

- Use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

- Brush thoroughly. Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.

- Floss your teeth daily. Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.

- Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be 'eaten'right down to the gum.

- Limit sugary foods. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

- Protect your teeth from injury. Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.

- Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.

- Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

- See your dentist for regular check-ups. You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.

These spots could be accurately diagnosed after checking clinically. The possibilities are for dentinal fluorosis which is pain less spot.

For effective teeth whitening and preventing them from discoloration, munch on foods like apples, carrots, pears or celery after brushing, as they produce tooth-bathing saliva which whitens the teeth.

Use thermoseal ra toothpaste. Rub gently wide you fingers on sensitive area and rinse properly. Use soft bristle toothbrush. Brush gently. If there is any exposed area due to enamel erosion, bonding, fluoride varnish may be useful.
