I have a toothaque problem due to last teeth coming little bit in improper direction. What should I do.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning or surgical removal procedures for the mucosa above the tooth or the tooth itself. Advise c. Amox 500mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Metrogyl 400mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Imol 1-1-1, thrice daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, allergy), c. Becosules 1-0-0 once daily all for 3 days only. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

The teeth in better quality dentures don't deteriorate fast as compared to the lower grade. There is no difference in the functioning of both. The sooner the attrition of teeth take place the sooner you may have to opt fr changing of your denture. So discuss with your doc and den decide.

I am looking so handsome but I have yellow teeth, how use for white teeth pl help me.
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

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.

Dear Mr. Nikhil, Please consult a Gum Specialist (Periodontist) You most likely have advanced gum disease with gum recession (loss) and yellow deposits called Calculus (Tartar). Kindly see a specialist, he will perform scaling and assess the gums for further procedures if required.

Dr. I am using patanjali dant kanti toothpaste what are the benefits of it do we have any side effects.

Dentist, Visakhapatnam
Dr. I am using patanjali dant kanti toothpaste what are the benefits of it do we have any side effects.
The product has its pros and cons as other products does. PROS 1.It has nice taste. 2. And the freshness lasts longer 3.Has good antibacterial property of neem and turmeric 4.Its soothing action on the cavities and gums 5.Minimum side effects CONS 1.It cannot be an alternative to dental treatment as it cannot reverse progression of cavities or gum diseases. 2.As it soothens (obtundant) effect of clove oil on regular basis misguides the pain respose which would end up in the end stages of the disease finally results increased cost of the dental treatment in late stages of the disease or the tooth should be removed if caries or periodontal progression goes beyond to save the tooth 3.The turmeric might cause tooth discolouration in long run. As far to my knowledge is concern use it just if you want to give a try but I will never reccomend it on regular basis.

Though you have the tonsils removed, still you can get pharyngitis meaning throat infection. Infection in the throat can be due to many causes like season change, having chilled water or food, exposure to heavy smoke, unhygienic environment. So nothing abnormal that you have got throat infections once in a while. When get the pain etc. Get yourself treated by a general physician/ENT specialist. Improve your resistance by having simple breathing exercise, taking fresh fruits and vegetables with every meal etc. Good luck.

What Is Gum Disease and How to Prevent It?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Jaipur
What Is Gum Disease and How to Prevent It?

Gum disease is characterized by inflammation of the gums caused by the bacteria present in plaque (a colorless and sticky film on the teeth). This disease affects the soft tissue and the bones surrounding the teeth. The bacteria causes irritation in the gums leading to infection and bleeding, while brushing your teeth.

The symptoms of gum disease are bleeding gums, over sensitive gums, continuous bad breath, change in the normal placement of teeth etc.

Following are a number of reasons why gum diseases occur, some of them are: 

  1. Prevailing diseases: Sometimes diseases, such as malignant tumors and AIDS can disrupt the immune system of the body. Due to the malfunctioning immune system, the gums become vulnerable to issues such as cavities.
  2. Smoking and alcohol consumption: Smoking and alcohol consumption cause problems in the gum tissue as the gums lose their ability to repair themselves effectively.
  3. Hormonal changes: Changes in behavior of the hormones in the body can increase sensitivity in the gums. This can make the gums prone to diseases.
  4. Not following proper dental hygiene: Not brushing and flossing on a regular basis can cause plaque accumulation in the teeth. The bacteria present in the plaque may cause gum diseases.
  5. Family history: If many people in the family have suffered from gum disorders, then your chances of getting gum diseases are relatively higher.

How can you prevent gum disease?
Gum diseases can be prevented by following proper dental hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing on a regular basis are the best methods of preventing gum diseases. Regular dental checkups are also recommended to identify any gum problems early and also prevent them. Modifications in lifestyle such as limiting smoking, eating a diet rich in antioxidants and reducing stress can also help in preventing gum diseases.

Severe cases of gum diseases may require surgery but mild cases can disappear by following a proper dental hygiene. Gum diseases have also been known to be associated with diabetes and heart diseases.

I have problem with bad breath even if go for 2 times brush also please suggest me what I can do to solve this.

BDS

I have problem with bad breath even if go for 2 times brush also please suggest me what I can do to solve this.
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: - practice good oral hygiene. - brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. - don't forget to brush the tongue, too. - replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. - use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. - see your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. - drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. - chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
