Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf, mouth opening exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. As for now advice c. Becosules 5 cap (enriched with vitamin a, vitamin b & vitamin e specifically), for five days in the morning after meals. You may consult me in person. 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.

I am 25 year old and I had addiction of tobacco last 10 year but currently I was leave addiction. But my mouth not opened very well. Also my tounge is short. Now I have not any problem with mouth and in last 7 year I got two time mouth ulcer and one time symtoms. So I want to open my mouth and want good mouth in future. So can you please tell me your opinion like what I need to do? so last 10 year my addiction not affect in future. Thank you.

I have blood leaking in my teeth what should I do?
Few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - 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 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.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

This concept is totally wrong. u should brush ur teeth before going to bed to prevent dental problems. As there is less flow of saliva at night, so bacteria gets more time to attack on ur teeth ,hence producing more dental problems.

How to make my teeth whiter?

MDS - Oral Medicine and Radiology, BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Hi, to whiten teeth, you need to get them cleaned by your dentist. If there are internal stains, then bleaching can be done. Although there are some commercially available toothpastes to whiten teeth, but the results obtained are very very slow. Best would be to get it done by your dentist.

Even after proper oral hygiene my mouth smells bad. I do not smoke and drink. I do not even indulge in junk food and I drink a lot of water and consume fruits. please help me. What can I do.

Complete Smile Makeover

MDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Your smile holds great importance as it is one of the first things that a person will notice about you. A smile can leave a long lasting impression on people and is very important for self-esteem and confidence. Smile makeover is a process, which considers your facial appearance, tone of skin, color, width, length or shape of your teeth along with the gum tissues and lips in order to improve your smile. A smile makeover can be done according to your preference and choices.

Here are the areas on which a complete smile makeover concentrates and improves upon:

Teeth color: for a perfect smile make over, natural, composite restorations can be used to replace silver and amalgam dental fillings. Teeth whitening process can be undertaken to improve upon the color of the teeth, which are stained or dull. The color and shade of teeth are taken into consideration for several things such as crowns, bridges or dental implants. White, glossy teeth give a youthful, fresh smile. The whitening is done to such an extent that it complements your other features.
Spacing and alignment of teeth: teeth which overlap each other, have gaps in between or have a crooked appearance can be straightened, and the alignment can be modified by orthodontics or invisalign.
Replacing missing teeth: missing teeth affect your appearance and your smile by a great deal. The risk of tooth decay is also enhanced. For an ideal smile make over, missing teeth should be replaced with dentures, bridges or other modes of dental implants.
Balancing uneven teeth: in case of uneven or chipped teeth with cracks on them, you can undergo cosmetic correction procedures to make your teeth appear balanced. In case you have a gummy smile, you can undergo recontouring procedures for improvement of your smile.
Modifying lips and cheeks: an unshapely face with wrinkles makes your smile unpleasant. This can be corrected using several procedures, which include orthodontics and oral maxillofacial surgery. Correction of your lips and cheeks will improve your smile to a great extent.
Tooth length: long teeth are responsible for a fresh, youthful smile. In case of short teeth, smile makeover techniques such as reshaping or lengthening of teeth can be undertaken. This will improve your smile. The proportion of your teeth can also be corrected to give you a perfect smile. The texture of the teeth can also be modified as a part of the smile makeover.

Treatments used for smile makeover:

A dentist can use an entire range of treatment to achieve your ideal smile makeover. These include:
In-office, professional teeth whitening, can brighten teeth up to 9 shades in a single visit
Porcelain veneers, thin, natural-looking, ceramic shells that mask imperfections such as cracks and chips
Dental crowns, tooth-shaped prosthetics that go over misshapen or worn teeth
Invisalign, clear, removable, custom aligners that gradually straighten minor alignment issues
Dental bonding, resin bonded to teeth that conceal cracks, gaps, and chips
Gum contouring, removing excess gum tissue to improve appearance and conformity of smile

A complete smile makeover allows you to correct and improve your smile, according to your preference. This process involves several cosmetic methodologies, the proper execution of which gives you an enhanced smile.
