Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

You need to get bleaching and professional cleaning. And maintain it by brushing twice daily and rinse after each meal. You can use colgate visible white toothpaste regularly.

Sir there are black spots on my tongue and some time they look like small ulcer what may be the reason and suggest the treatment.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Porbandar
Some low blood haemoglobin level ( due to vitamin methylcobamin deficiency ) leads to black spots on tongue especially anterior part of tongue but this is only one sign and it would not confirm that' s it' s the only cause, but u can ask your physician or directly have a test for blood hb level check up done

How much year old baby should start brush on his teeth.

Hello lybrate-user Divya is not mature enough to brush by herself. First for a few days make a habit to clean her teeth by the finger itself after that you purchase small toothbrush for children and use any toothpaste for example pepsodent and you brush her teeth. And present some examples before her the way you brush so that she will learn to imitate you. Be an example before her. I think for now you r at 2nd stage. Tq.

Hi alisha, have you done scaling (cleaning) procedure before. If not please do it immediately. Calculus present on the tooth surface is the main reason for bad smell. Still the problem persists, please consult a gastero enterologist to rule out any digestion problems.

2 Biggest Dental Mistakes that Indians Make!

2 Biggest Dental Mistakes that Indians Make!
2 Biggest dental mistakes that Indians make!

Your dental health chiefly depends on the way you care for your teeth and gums. Most Indians consider maintaining oral health a very simple thing, and end up committing quite a few dental blunders as a result. As a result, a whopping 95% of the population in India suffers from gum disease! (Source: National Oral Health Programme)

Read on to find which of these dental mistakes you are making and how to avoid them.

1. Not flossing your teeth
Flossing plays a significant role in getting rid of sticky bacteria or plaque from your teeth. The acid generated by dental plaque is the chief cause behind oral cavities, gum irritation and various other gum diseases. Flossing is essential for cleaning the space between your teeth and in turn eliminating most of the bacteria present in your mouth. This is the very reason it should not be ignored.However in India, well over 70% of the population does not floss.

2. Not regularly visiting the dentist
Most Indians have the habit of not visiting the dentist at regular intervals due to laziness, a forgetful nature or fear. Quite a few hold the common belief that if they aren’t experiencing a toothache, they don’t need to visit the dentist at all. Only 2% of Indians visit the dentist. This often puts you in greater risks of developing a gum disease, which may require painful and costly treatment in the future. So, make it a priority to visit the dentist at least once every year to ensure better dental health.

Dr. i am feeling weak in my bony structure and my teeth veery soon became yellowish

BDS
Dentist, Dibrugarh
If you are feeling weakness at your teeth periphery it can be because of several reasons : 1) Deposits around the tooth leading to gum recession and all the way leading to bone loss. 2) some medical history like diabetes also causes bone loss which causes weakening of teeth. your reason seems to be more likely towards deposits around the tooth causing yellowish discolouration of teeth and weakness of teeth. so first of all you should go for oral prophylaxis of teeth

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

It takes time to heal. 2016 revision of the clinical practice guideline for the management of candidiasis lists a large number of specific treatment regimens for Candida infections that involve different Candida species, forms of antifungal drug resistance, immune statuses, and infection localization and severity normally a dentist would prescribe an antifungal cream like candida containing clotrimazole if they do not work then, fluconazole is the proven treatment. In severe cases amphotericin B will be prescribed also it is important your mother uses chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly. And in case she is wearing dentures she should wash them and keep them clean also. And she should not be on any steroid treatment etc. Also it is importa if it doeant get treated.
