The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

I am 25 years old, I have yellow spots in my teeth. How to remove it? Please advise.

I am 25 years old, I have yellow spots in my teeth. How to remove it? Please advise.
Hi , yellow spots on the gum level towards the tooth must be calculus. Calculus is formed due to accumulation of plaque. It cannot be removed by brushing. You need to visit a dentist to get ultrasonic scaling (cleaning) done for healthy gums and a beautiful smile. If the spots are on the tooth surface it might be stains. Please visit a dentist for an evaluation for a better diagnosis.

Jaw pain: jaw pain can be due to various reasons and mostly the main suspected reason is stressful life style. Which might lead to constant grinding of the teeth maybe in the night or during the day, leading to tenderness of the muscles supporting your jaw. In many instances it could be due to wisdom teeth newly erupting into your mouth or wisdom teeth erupting into your mouth in a wrong position or the wisdom teeth unable to erupt at all. All these leads to pain in the muscles around the mouth and can also lead to swelling and inability to open the mouth completely. In any case, you need to visit your dentist to actually find out the cause for the pain and appropriate treatment. I hope I answered your query.

A set of dental braces can give a sort of confidence in their appearance that is so important to teenagers.Most of the patients are thrilled with their perfect teeth - but there can be problems like staining of the teeth due to poor cleaning of the teeth due to the presence of braces.

The foul smell in your mouth is due to accumulation of food debris, which is a result of inadequate maintenance of oral hygiene. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. You should also clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Scaling will also take care of your sensitivity issue. Hope that helps.

I am 25 years old and I have some bleeding from my mouth in morning when I am splitting saliva.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
I am 25 years old and I have some bleeding from my mouth in morning when I am splitting saliva.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning or surgical, gum strengthening procedures. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

My 11 years daughter defined an apical root cyst noted in right maxilla. Doctors of AMC advised to do RCT of 4 teeth. Now i want to know if i take her to chennai apollo, approximately how many days it will be take for the treatment and approx. Cost for it.

Dentist, Asansol
Apical cyst can be treated by conservative means I,e by undergoing RCT but it depends on upon the size of leison. In some cases Apicectomy Is done along with RCT. So the actual time and cost depends on treatment plan.

Dental Care Tips for Diabetes Patients

BDS
Dentist, Faridabad
Dental Care Tips for Diabetes Patients

Diabetes is a chronic, systemic disease and affects all parts of the body. While its effect on the nerves, eyes, kidneys, and skin is more common, their oral effects are less known. However, diabetes will vouch how they lost tooth and have dry mouth after their sugars went out of control.

  1. Oral Symptoms in Diabetics: There is a strong correlation between oral health and poorly controlled blood sugars. Some of the common oral indications of diabetes are as follows.
  2. Dry Mouth: There is less amount of saliva, which brings with it a whole lot of symptoms including soreness of the mucosa, ulcers, increased chances of infection, gum inflammation and tooth decay.
  3. Thrush: The saliva has higher sugar levels and attracts fungus (Candida in particular) which thrives in this dry, sugary environment. This produces a burning sensation in the mouth.
  4. Periodontal Disease: The gums get severely infected with gingival recession, where the gum line recedes exposing more of the tooth (tooth length seems to have increased). There is “pocket” formation, or space between the tooth and the gum which hosts a variety of bacteria. The periodontal ligament loses its strength to hold the tooth in place, and thereby teeth become mobile. If not worked upon in time, there could be multiple teeth lost.

As much as it sounds alarming, it is not. There are easy, simple ways to manage these. In fact, good overall management of diabetes will ensure the oral symptoms are also maintained under control. Following are some things to do which will help in managing diabetes in general and the oral symptoms in particular:

As soon as diabetes is diagnosed, visit a dentist to take stock of the oral health condition. Any identified problem should be treated to avoid progression.

  1. Keep a close watch to ensure blood sugar remains as close to normal as possible.

  2. Switch to a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles. This will help reduce the pressure on the gums and thereby prevent gum bleeding

  3. After every meal, remember to brush the teeth.

  4. Flossing at least once a day will help remove food deposits between the teeth. Alternately, use interdental brushes.

  5. Rinse at least twice daily using an antiseptic mouthwash.

  6. Denture-wearers should always clean them daily and never go to sleep with the denture in the mouth.

  7. Smoking with diabetics is a strict no-no, work on quitting at the earliest.

  8. Visit a dentist every 3 months to ensure oral issues are identified at the earliest and treatment done with minimal intervention.

  9. Any dental procedure should be done only when sugar levels are under control.

These will ensure not just oral health but also overall control of diabetes.

Hello, Halitosis, colloquially called bad breath, or fetor oris, is a symptom in which a noticeably unpleasant odor is present on the exhaled breath. Of those who have genuine halitosis, often the odor is caused by bacteria present below the gumline and on the back of the tongue. The remaining 10% is accounted for by many different conditions, including disorders in the nasal cavity, sinuses, throat, lungs, esophagus, stomach or elsewhere. Very rarely, halitosis can be one of many symptoms of a serious underlying medical condition such as liver failure; but, in the vast majority of cases, the cause is minor and can often be reduced by adjustments to oral hygiene, including brushing or gently scraping the back of the tongue and improving the health of the gums by using dental floss. The intensity of bad breath may differ during the day, due to eating certain foods (such as garlic, onions, meat, fish, and cheese), smoking,[12] and alcohol consumption. Since the mouth is exposed to less oxygen[medical citation needed] and is inactive during the night, the odor is usually worse upon awakening ("morning breath"). Bad breath may be transient, often disappearing following eating, drinking, tooth brushing, flossing, or rinsing with specialized mouthwash. Use SBL’s Homeodent toothpaste twice (morning & night) a day daily.

My teeth is paining when I take pill it stops paining but some time later it starts paining what I can do.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Toothache is usually caused due to decay in the tooth which is deep enough to reach the pulp where the nerve tissue are present. I would advise you to visit a nearby dentist and get intraoral radiograph done to see the extent of damage. Usually in such cases root canal therapy needs to be done to relieve the pain.
