5 Ways You Are Unknowingly Staining Your Teeth

M.D.S-Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, BDS

You may often find that no matter how much you brush your teeth or whichever teeth whitener you might use, your teeth still appear stained and your smile still appears dull. There are certain foods, such as coffee, alcohol like red wine, soya sauce etc. which can be considered obvious culprits. However, it is not only the foods that cause staining, several other factors contribute to this as well. Following is a list of 5 things which can stain your teeth sooner than you think.

1. High intake of tea
Research has suggested that tea, be it brewed tea, green tea or iced tea, causes a high level of staining in your teeth; often in levels much higher than coffee. This is because tea contains a high level of tannins and also high amounts of acid, which aid the staining process, and eventually lead to much yellower teeth and long-lasting stains.

2. Drinking high amounts of lemonade
Lemonade is rich in sugars and acids, which effectively lead to wearing down of the enamel and exposing the next layer called the dentin, which itself is yellow in color. This makes the teeth appear yellowish. In cases where the enamel coating on your teeth is thin, the acid erosion takes place quicker; often leading to stained teeth. This condition may often become permanent or semi-permanent, with modes of reversal becoming increasingly difficult.

3. Extended periods of medication-intake
Injuries or illnesses, which lead to taking medications for sustained periods, can negatively affect the flow of blood to the teeth. This may lead to discoloration and staining. Certain medications, such as cough syrups which are rich in sugars can, also result in yellowing of teeth.

4. Swimming for long durations
Swimming for prolonged periods [usually around 6 hours a week in chemically-treated pools, can also lead to the browning of your teeth. This is because, often when you open your mouth and let water in, you allow certain chemicals to enter your mouth which can have adverse reaction on the tooth enamel. This ultimately leads to teeth corrosion and eventual staining.

5. Having excessive sugary drinks
Certain drinks which contain large amounts of synthetic food coloring increase sugar levels and aid the growth of bacteria in your mouth, thus causing tooth decay and discoloration of teeth.

I am 19 years old daily I am facing an issue when brushing I have to come vomiting what to I do.
The vomit sensation you are talking about is known as gag reflex. It is a protective mechanism of the human body to avoid the entrance of any unwanted material down the throat. In your case, you are experiencing the reflex while brushing, that means your brushing pattern might be wrong. You are taking your brush to much deeper areas than required. Also, you might not be cleaning your tongue properly. Visit your dentist and ask him about some correct brushing patterns and start using a tongue cleaner. Whenever you experience gag try to focus on some other activity or object, such as your big toe. It diverts you and thus the gag stops. Avoid mouth breathing, that increases the gag. If the problem persists even after changing your brushing/cleaning pattern and avoiding mouth breathing there is more to it. Pay a visit to both your dentist and gasteroenterologist.

Pain depends on various factors to be assessed. Need to know whether it is sensitivity, pain radiating deep into the root (s, or whether into the sorrounding area. Depends on tooth whether there is decay, fracture due to fall, mobility or wearing due to faulty brushing and chewing forces. Always advisable to visit dentist first without any self medication or searching for remedies.

Candida fungus is normally found in our mouth. Infection from this fungus hsppens wen ones immunity is suppressed due to long term usage of antibiotics n corticosteroids n few other medications. Stress also plays a major factor. Apply candid oral paint liberally with your finger tips or with help of cotton buds on the affected part of your tongue twice daily for a wk. Continue till the patch disappears. Drink plenty of fluids.

Teeth are yellow due to two factors. Extrinsic and intrinsic. If it is extrinsic then you have to get oral prophylaxis. And if it is intrinsic then you have two options either a teeth whitening (bleaching) or vineers. Thanx.
