How to remove marks of gutkha on teeth?

Dentist,
How to remove marks of gutkha on teeth?
Quit the habit of gutka because it causes so many serious oral problems like leukoplakia. Submucous fibrosis and even oral cancer. For stains you can go for bleaching the tooth. You can consult me for further advice.

Hello, Receding gums could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

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.

Sip small amounts of water regularly. Saliva substitutes are available in the market. Check all you general medications and consult your physician about the same as well. Are you taking too many? Can some be stopped/reduced?

There is swelling and bleeding in her gum and has also got cavity. What to do? Please help me.

There is swelling and bleeding in her gum and has also got cavity. What to do? Please help me.
Scaling will help in this regard. Plaque or tarter get deposited between the gum and tooth and cause inflammation and bleeding. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash for 15 days. Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after eating anything.

Bleeding is due to inflammation in your gums caused due to poor oral hygiene. Medicines will not help you solve your problem. You need to have a clean up done and follow instructions given by your dentist to maintain your oral hygiene.

Diphtheria - How it Affects Your Throat and Tongue?

Diphtheria - How it Affects Your Throat and Tongue?

A quite serious bacterial infection, diphtheria is caused by the Corynebacterium diphtheria. It usually tends to affect the throat and the mouth of an affected person, although there are other varieties which can infect your skin as well. However, the most common cases of diphtheria affect the throat and the mouth. 

Symptoms of diphtheria in general
It may take up to five days for symptoms to show up when you are infected with the disease. Some of the symptoms would be:

  1. You neck would swell up due to swelling in the lymph nodes, especially in the neck
  2. Your throat and tonsils will develop a thick grayish membrane 
  3. Your throat may become sore and hoarse
  4. You may face difficulty in breathing, depending on the size of the membrane and the resultant inflammation
  5. You may have difficulty swallowing as well

These are the primary symptoms which will affect your throat in general. Some of the other symptoms that may show up are:

  1. Fever
  2. Nasal discharge
  3. Malaise or a general feeling of discomfort 
  4. Chills

The parts of your body, which are affected the most tend to be your throat, tongue and the neck. The pain tends to persist for quite some time as you recover.

Causes of diphtheria 
Diphtheria is usually spread by the following methods

  1. Airborne droplets: This is possibly the most common method of contracting the disease. This usually happens when a person is infected with diphtheria coughs or sneezes around you. The airborne droplets then travel from one person to another, transmitting the infection. This is particularly the case in crowded area such as public transport and public spaces.
  2. Touching personal items which may be infected: Touching used towels, paper tissues or drinking from an unwashed glass may cause an infection as well. These tend to happen mostly in an indoor setting such as offices and houses. Even toys, door and equipment handles can cause transmission of this virus. 

If you are showing any of these symptoms, it is prudent to consult a doctor immediately as diphtheria, if left untreated, may also result in serious complications.

I am always clean my teeth but my teeth is yellow in color. I should change my paste.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Since brushing after every meal is not convinient, try chewing a sugarless gum for freshening your breath and removing the leftover food particles.

It is called Halitosis. You must be having unhealthy gums. Please get a professional scaling and polishing done once in 4 months from dentist. Start using mouthwash before going to bed.

Fruits and vegetables like apple, corn and carrots, which can create difficulty in chewing and would need continous biting should be considerably avoided while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
