Removal of deposits /calculus in between the teeth may cause spaces. If these deposits are not removed your teeth would appear yellow, affect the gums causing bleeding of gums and also cause bad breath and even weaken the bone healthy gums are more important. Spacing of the teeth could be due to weakened bone or other causes. An xray will help to know the cause. Do visit the dentist nearby scaling is only benefical.

From last 1 year I am having very much dirt on my tongue after waking up in the morning, very thick dirt is collected on tongue cleaner on first two swipes while cleaning tongue Why high dirt is on my tongue?

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
This is usually caused by food debris trapped in the spaces between the papillae, and can lead to bacterial growth and bad breath (halitosis), or soreness (see below). It’s made worse by mouth dryness – for example, in dehydration or if saliva is reduced by dry mouth or Sjogren’s syndrome, drugs such as those used for incontinence, or if we mouth-breathe (often while asleep). The coating is usually whitish-grey, but if mouth hygiene is poor (for example, because of severe illness) it can lead to a ‘black, hairy tongue’. You can remove coating by brushing your tongue every day with a toothbrush or tongue scraper (from your pharmacist). Pineapple or pineapple juice can help if it’s severe, but if it’s persistent, or you regularly have a dry mouth, this could damage your teeth, so see your GP or dentist. Geographical tongue has irregular patches which frequently change. It’s due to flattening of different papillae, although the cause isn’t known. 1 Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid sugary or acidic drinks that can cause tooth decay. 2 Keep your mouth fresh by brushing teeth (and, if necessary, your tongue), twice daily. Floss teeth, too, but don’t rinse protective fluoride toothpaste away. 3 Don’t smoke – it’s a risk factor for mouth cancer and causes bad breath. 4 Drink alcohol within recommended limits – a high alcohol intake is also linked to mouth cancer. 5 Have regular dental checks – your dentist is trained to advise on mouth health, 1. Clean the tongue on a regular basis to prevent bacteria from growing. You can use toothbrushes designed for cleaning the tongue or the ones which have an attachment on the reverse side of it. Don’t use the front part (the one you use for brushing teeth) to clean the tongue. 2. Another way is to scrape your tongue with a thoroughly washed tongue-cleaner or scraper. While scraping, don’t apply too much pressure. Scrape it in a downward motion at least two to three times. If the pressure is too much you may hurt your tongue. Brushing teeth also should be done in a particular way. Here’s what you should know about brushing your teeth. 3. You can use toothpaste to coat your tongue before scraping. Toothpaste neutralizes bacteria on tongue and helps to remove them easily. 4. Rinse your mouth with water thoroughly after scraping. 5. Occasionally, you can use a mouth wash after scraping. Mouth wash helps to remove the bad odour caused by deposition of bacteria on the tongue. But don’t use it daily as it may cause over drying of mouth. Read more about how mouth wash can fight germs in your mouth. 6. You can also rinse your mouth with saline water. Take a half glass of lukewarm water and pour a half teaspoon of salt in it. Rinse your mouth five to six times a day with it. 7. Drink green tea. It helps to eliminate oral bacteria. Read more about health benefits of green tea. 8. Avoid eating foods such as black grapes and berries. These foods can also be the culprits for unwanted colour on your tongue. 9. When you have high fever, a white layer gets formed on the top of the tongue. It can be removed by regular cleanup, but if that can’t be done, it’s a fungal infection. There are ointments for such cases to keep the tongue clean. 10. Drink loads of water. Sometimes dehydration can cause change in colour of the tongue.

Hi lybrate-user, Happy diwali. I appreciate that you have quit chewing tobacco. This is one of the withdrawal symptom that you are having, just try and have a glass of water before having food, or try having a candy before having meal. Ai think this should solve away your problem.

Osteoporosis - Can It Impact Your Oral Health?

Osteoporosis - Can It Impact Your Oral Health?

Osteoporosis is an age related condition characterized by low bone density and fragile bones. Lack of calcium and vitamin D are the most common triggers of this condition. These are vital elements for healthy teeth as well. Osteoporosis has a direct relationship with oral health and can trigger a number of issues such as loss of teeth, gum and can cause periodontal disease. The effects of osteoporosis on oral health and affect more women than men. This risk increases when talking of menopausal women.

  • The jawbone is one of the areas that bears the brunt of osteoporosis. The loss of bone density in this area can cause tooth loss and make teeth loose. It can also affect the gum ridges that hold dentures in their place. This can result in ill fitting dentures that need to be frequently changed.
  • Medication for osteoporosis is also linked to dental health. In rare cases, antiresorptive medicines that are prescribed to strengthen the bones can lead to a condition known as osteonecrosis. This refers to the death of a bone due to poor blood supply. Antiresorptive medication can be administered orally or intravenously with the latter having a higher risk of triggering osteonecrosis. Though it affects the hips and shoulder bones in most cases, it can also affect the jaw bone. It is marked by pain, swelling, infection and exposed bone. Loose teeth, gum infections and numbness or heaviness of the jaw are also symptoms of osteonecrosis of the jaw bone.
  • The risk of suffering from osteonecrosis cannot be determined beforehand. Hence it is a good idea to see your dentist before or just after starting antiresorptive treatment for osteoporosis and to schedule regular checkups for the duration of your treatment. Dental problems if any should be treated before starting medication for osteoporosis. Osteonecrosis of the jaw bone is most commonly seen after undergoing a dental procedure that affects the jawbone and associated tissues such as a tooth extraction. Ideally, invasive dental procedures should be avoided if you are taking antiresoptive medicines. However, it can also occur spontaneously.
  • Biophosphonates are also commonly prescribed to treat osteoporosis. This type of medication slows down the breakdown of bone tissue. However, this can lead to the development of new bones. This is not a troublesome issue when it comes to bones like the hip, leg or arm bones but can be very disruptive if it affects the jawbone. This is because the jaw bone is constantly reforming and reshaping itself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Dear lybrate-user, the remaining root of the extracted tooth must be taken out. Ask your doctor to extract the same and your wound might need dressings of some antiseptics like iodoform, which will augment the healing process after the tooth is taken out.

Gums bleeding is due to infection in gums. Get scalling done by dentist. Take vit c tab for one week. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs.

I was using tobacoo but I got sores in mouth and size of my mouth become smaller. I cant it chili.
