Afraid of cavities? Chew some gum!

BDS, MDS
Dentist

As many people eat food away from their home, it may not be easy to floss or use a mouthwash to gargle. A great alternative is to chew a sugar-free gum immediately after eating. This is something that could be carried around easily, and could supplement the oral care routine. It helps reduce the risk of cavities.

Research has shown that chewing sugar-free gum for 20 minutes after eating or drinking can help reduce tooth decay risk by up to 40 percent !

Bad breath has many causes. Usually it happens because of entrapment of food in tooth crevices. So we need to discuss your problem. And find the cause and then we can start your treatment. As a preventive measure you can start rinsing everytime after meal. And using a mouthwash and effective toothpaste.

Every morning I got saliva in my mouth that make my mouth smell so dear sir/mam suggest me how to stop it.
•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

To trigger the prevention of teeth from discoloration and for whiter teeth develop a habit of munching appleas, pears, carrots or celery after brushing as they induce tooth-bathing saliva which whitens the teeth.

That's calcified plaque also called as calculus in medical terms. Calculus cannot be cleaned by tooth brush. It needs professional cleaning (complete ultrasonic scaling) to be done for removal.

My b 12 level is 220 and tongue blister/ wound problem still exist. How to improve b 12 level by food and tab.
Hi, your b 12 levels are slightly on the lower side of normal. This is common in strictly vegetarian people. You should not worry, increase the intake of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Meet your physician and start vitamin b12 tablets with his opinion. The blister / wound has nothing to do with vitamin b12 levels as tongue manifestations of vitamin deficiency are different. For tongue problem, visit an oral medicine specialist for its treatment. Regards.

Yes, you are right, for cavity you will have to undergo rct--------- take following precautions for your teeth------------------ 1. Drinks: coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause damage staining on the teeth because of its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These acidic drinks lowers the ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2. Certain foods: all sweets, candies, popscicles, damage teeth due to its high sugar content. So avoid them as much as you can and if you eat do not forget to rinse your mouth with water immediately after finishing it--------------------------------------- 3. Every time you take meals or eat something make sure to rinse your mouth with water and with homoeopathic rinseout gargles (sbl) after every meals---------------------------------- 4. Use any brand paste for brushing teeth in morning but never forget to scrub teeth with hekla lavatooth powder (wheezal) at night just before sleep.------------------------------------- 5. If possible start a habit of chewing neem stick (datuun) in the morning as it not anly scrubs our teeth but its juice acts as a good antiseptic and antibiotic to destroy the harmful bacterias stuck in out teeth cavities and inbetween teeth.

Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

If it is an injury due to a fall, lip biting, or a sharp object, apply an anesthetic/antiseptic oral gel over the injury, avoid very spicy and hot food. It will slowly heal.

Consuming sugary food in a huge quantity can be harmful for the teeth as the bacteria present in dental plaque changes them into acids.
