I am 33 yrs men. My wisdom tooths are grown in wrong direction and my main cause of concern is there is no pain but smells badly. I don't know which tooth out of 4 is smelling. So that I can remove that tooth or advise otherwise.

Dentist, Bangalore
Your tooth has grown in abnormal position, due to that it might be a gap in between wisdom tooth and adjacent tooth, in which food is getting lodged. You can get it removed and keep that area clean by brushing and by use of mouthwash.

Teeth becoming loose in this age should be viewed seriously. This may be pyorrhea. Kindly consult a periodontist who is the specialist in the gum problems. He may take an opg xray and see the amount of bone is lost and he may decide whether you need bone replacement to strengthen your teeth after gum treatment.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. 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. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

I advice you go for scaling (professional tooth cleaning) to remove the extrinsic stains and then polishing and then bleaching (tooth whitening) so as to remove the intrinsic stains and improves the tooth shade

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

GOOD BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR KIDS

GOOD BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR KIDS

GOOD BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR KIDS

Good brushing should take at least 2 minutes time.

1. Divide the mouth into 6 sections and take 20 secs for each section.

2. Start with the outer surfaces of the lower jaw

3. Then the inner and the biting surfaces

4. Repeat the upper jaw in the same manner. Small circular motion near gum line is most effective.

I advice you visit a dentist once in every 3-4 month for plaque removal. Use soft bristle tooth-brush. Use floss twice a day it prevent plaque formation. Tooth paste with triclosan should be used. Use anti-plaque mouthwash two times in a day for 15 days.

BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Don' t do brush very hard, it will erode normal gums and it will bleed. So try to learn the exact technique of brushing from a dentist. Don' t do brush more than 3 minutes.

Chew 3-5 leaves of tulsi daily. Correct your diet. Eat dates, dry fruits on a daily basis. Sleep well. Gargle your mouth with lukewarm salt water 2-4 times a day.

Hi, maintain oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily. Rinse your mouth after every meal. Avoid sugary food. Massage gums while brushing your teeth. Take a vitamin c supplement daily. If pain persists, show yourself to a dentist.

I get bad breath from my mouth sometimes which is really frustrating because I have to interact with many people as per my professional requirement. Need assistance on the same.

BDS
Dentist, Vadodara
Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

Get scaling done. Plaqe or tarter are the main cause of halitosis. Rinse mouth three times a day with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush twice daily.

Dear lybrate-user, if your ulcer is occurring at the same spot in the mouth then it may be due to some kind of irritation of the spot like in the cheek by a tooth. For this you have to get a dental checkup done by a dentist. In case the ulcers are occurring in different spots then you have to be careful about dental hygiene. Brush your teeth daily at least twice inaday for at least 2 min each time. Also floss your tongue &rinse your mouth after every meal. Avoid spicy food. Lastly please go & get a checkup done by a dentist.
