Please get checked from dentist first to rule out cause of pain. Get the cavities treated first. Decaying can be prevented by good oral hygiene. Brush regularly. Use mouthwash and floss. Gargle with warm water after every meal. Avoid junk food and sticky food. Avoid airated drinks and visit your dentist evry six months.

Cleaning of teeth that is scaling will only clean the stains or spots that are on the outer surface of your teeth if the stains are from inside of the teeth and you want to make it white thwn you should opt for bleach. It is of two types home bleach and in office clinical bleach. Depending upon the yellowness ypur doc would suggest you the option. Also if the stains are veryy severe then you may need to wear cap or cosmetically correct it.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Got a late night sugar craving that just won't quit? to satisfy your sweet tooth without pushing yourself over the calories edge even in the late night hours, think fruits first.

Hello lybrate-user, cavities are one of the reason for your bad breathing. Food particles get accumulated in the cavity where they get decomposed and bad smell comes from it. So you have to get them filled or keep them clean if you don't want to fill them. Keeping the cavities clean is very tough job. One more thing you can do is rinse your mouth whenever you eat anything.

Lybrate-user, if your teeth a badly decayed, as they have been diagnosed by your dentist, the only avenue available to you for saving the teeth would be getting root canal treatment done at the earliest or else you will end up losing those teeth at this young age. If money is a genuine problem, you can discuss it with your dentist who may be able to guide you to some charitable / government hospital for the same.

Dry mouth may result from less salivation in to your mouth because of dehydration, very less jaw movements. It may also result from mouth breathing, that we do unknowingly while sleeping. Drink good amount of water, jaw movements while talking causes salivation. Ask someone to observe you while sleeping. If you have mouth breathing, there are certain appliances to manage it. You can contact for that.

Bad breath or called as" halitosis" there are various reasons for bad breath. First of all update your medical history as the problem could be elsewhere in your body but will be shown as bad breath through your mouth as mouth being the gateway for your complete system. Apart from that there might be local soft or hard deposits on your teeth which can cause bad breath. This might need professional cleaning by the dentist your teeth might be not well aligned, which we call as" crowded" teeth which makes its challenging for you to keep it clean. So consult an orthodontist (specialist for braces) to align your teeth. Your health of the gums might be compromised which also leads to bad breath. Consult a periodontist for gum problems. Your teeth might have cavities where the food can get lodged and might lead to bad breath. Consult your dentist for this. Inspite of regular cleaning and brushing it might be difficult for you to get a fresh breath. As I mentioned above your dentist will tell you exactly the problem areas. Make sure you do your part well. Regular brushing of your teeth twice daily regular flossing of your teeth (which means cleaning between your teeth by means of floss) clean your tongue gently as it can harbour bacteria causing bad breath stay away from tobacco related habits consume a lot of water and stay hydrated. As dry mouth also leads to bad breath. Please do not use mouth washes if not prescribed by your dentist as they have their own side effects which would be a negative to your oral health. Pay a visit to your dentist every 6 months or earlier for routine cleaning as suggested by your dentist. Problems diagnosed and treated earlier needs less attention as well as works out financially easier for you. I hope I clarified your question. If you need further clarification you can always buzz me or ask your dentist. Good luck and god bless
