Dear reddy, smell is associated with all of us. We need to assess if its normal in your case or due to any food retained, cavities, gum swelling, throat infection, sinus infection, gastritis, indigestion or as simple as lack of adequate water intake. Once we get to the problem we can find a solution.

Size of gums is different in upper and lower teeth. So lower teeth appear like receding. No need to worry. Visit the nearby dentist for regular check up.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Teeth Whitening At Home In Hindi - दांत चमकाने के घरेलू नुस्खे

Teeth Whitening At Home In Hindi - दांत चमकाने के घरेलू नुस्खे

चेहरा कितना भी चमकदार हो लेकिन अगर दांत पीले हों तो आकर्षण कम हो जाता है। चमकते मोती से दांत सिर्फ स्वस्थ दांतों के लिए ही नहीं बल्कि अट्रैक्टिव पर्सनालिटी के लिए भी जरूरी है । आपकी हंसी के साथ अगर आपके दांत पीले दिख जाए तो सरेआम आप हंसी के पात्र बन जाते हैं। दोस्तों खिलखिलाती मुस्कान के लिए मोतियों जैसे सफेद दांतों की जरूरत पड़ती ही है। चमकते दांतों से हमारी पर्सनैलिटी को भी नई पहचान मिलती है । पर आज के दौर में हम में से ज्यादातर लोग पीले दांतों से परेशान हैं तो चलिए हम कुछ ऐसे नुस्खे  जानते हैं जिससे हमारे दांत चमकदार हो जाएं। 

पहले दांत पीले होने के कुछ कारणों को जानिए जिसे अवॉयड करना चाहिए जैसे कि _

  • हाई मात्रा में कैमिकल्स पानी
  • तंबाकू और धूम्रपाम  
  • कलर्ड फूड्स 
  • अस्वस्थ आहार

आपको टीथ व्हाइटनिंग के तमाम बाजारू इलाज मिल जाएंगे कई ब्रांड के टूथपेस्ट, मंजन आदि पर इनसे ज्यादा प्रभावी इलाज आपको अपने किचन में मिलेंगे जो ना ही खरचेलू होंगे ना किसी भी तरह के साइड इफ़ेक्ट की आशंका से भरे तो चलिए जानते हैं टीथ व्हाइटनिंग के असरदार घरेलू उपचार। 

1. दूध 
दूध से बनने वाले उत्पादों का सेवन ज्यादा करें क्योंकि उसमें कैल्शियम होता हैं जो दांतों के लिए बहुत जरूरी है। चाय कॉफी का सेवन लिमिटेड मात्रा में ही करें।  
2. पीपल की जड़ 
दांतों की समस्या को दूर करने के लिए पीपल के पेड़ की जड़ काफी कारगर साबित होती है। इससे आपको प्राकृतिक रूप से चमकदार दांत प्राप्त होंगे। आप इसे एक टूथब्रश की तरह भी इस्तेमाल में ला सकते हैं। पीपल की जड़ लेकर दांत साफ़ करें और इसे फेंक दें। इनके एस्ट्रिंजेंट गुण दांतों को चमकदार और स्वस्थ बनाने में काफी फायदेमंद साबित होते हैं।

3. स्ट्रॉबेरी
स्ट्रॉबेरी में मैलिक एसिड मौजूद होता है, जो एक नैचुरल व्हाइटनिंग एजेंट है जो स्लाइवा के प्रॉडक्शन को बढ़ाकर दांतों को सफेद बनाता है। एक स्ट्रॉबेरी को मैश कर लें और टूथब्रश की मदद से दांतों पर हल्के से रगड़े और 5 मिनट बाद अच्छी तरह धो लें। ऐसा हफ्ते में एक बार जरूर करें। स्ट्रॉबेरी में अच्छी मात्र में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट और विटामिन सी होता है जो दांत सफ़ेद करने के मदद करता है।

4. तुलसी
ये तो हम सब जानते हैं कि तुलसी का प्रयोग घर में पूजा के लिए किया जाता है, पर इसके कई औषधीय गुण भी होते हैं। तुलसी में दांतों को चमकाने एवं दांतों एवं मुंह की समस्याओं को दूर करने के गुण होते हैं। दांतों को पीलेपन से बचाने के लिए तुलसी के पत्ते तोड़ें और इन्हें धूप में कुछ घंटों के लिए रखें। एक बार इनके सूख जाने पर इन्हें पीस लें। आप तुलसी की सूखी पत्तियों के साथ सरसों के तेल का मिश्रण करके दांतों की मालिश भी मसाज करें।

5. नमक

नमक में सोडियम और क्लोराइड दोनों शामिल होता है, जो दांतों का पीलापन कम करने के लिए कारगर है। हफ्ते में दो तीन बार नमक में सरसो का तेल मिलाकर दांतो का मसाज करें।
 
6. नीम
नीम में दांत सफेद बनाने और बैक्टीरिया खत्म करने के लाजवाब गुण पाए जाते हैं। रोजाना नीम की दातून से दांत साफ करें।

7. नींबू
एक नींबू का रस निकालकर उसमें सामान मात्रा में ही पानी मिला लें। खाने के बाद इस पानी का कुल्ला करें। रोजाना ऐसा करने से दांतों का पीलापन और सांसों की दुर्गंध दूर हो जाती है।


8. बेकिंग सोडा
बेकिंग सोडा पीले दांतों को सफेद बनाने का सबसे बेस्ट घरेलू तरीका है। ब्रश करने के बाद थोड़ा सा बेकिंग सोडा से दांतों की मसाज करें और  मुंह धो लें इससे दांतों पर जमी पीली पर्त साफ हो जाएगी।

9. दातून
एक गलास पानी में आधा नींबू निचोड़ें और इसमें रातभर दातुन रख दें। सुबह इसी दातुन का इस्तेमाल करें। इससे दांतों का पीलापन खत्म हो जाएगा। यदि आप प्रतिदिन दातुन नहीं कर सकते तो सप्ताह में एक दिन जरूर दातुन अवश्य करें। इससे दांत और मसूड़े स्वस्थ व मजबूत भी होते हैं ।

10. सेब 
सेब की अम्लता दाँतों को सफ़ेद करने में मदद करती है। सेब अच्छी तरह से चबाकर खाएं। इसमें तंतु की अच्छी मात्र होती है जो दांतों को सफ़ेद करने में मदद करती है।
11. लकड़ी का कोयला
रोज के टूथपेस्ट में लकड़ी के कोयले का पाउडर मिलाएं और इससे हल्के हांथो से दांत सांफ करें । कोयले के पाउडर का दिन में 2 बार इस्तेमाल करने से आपके दांत चमकने लगेंगे।
12. संतरे का छिल्का
संतरे का विटामिन सी दाँतों के कीटाणुओं को मारता है। यह दांतों को मजबूत और ज्यादा सफ़ेद करता है। तो अब से जब भी मौका मिले रात को सोने से पहले संतरे के छिलके से दांत घिसें।

13. केले का छिलका 
 केला पोषक पदार्थों से भरपूर होता है। केले के छिलकों से भी कई लाभ मिल सकते हैं। केले के छिलको में पोटैशियम, मैग्नीशियम और मैंगनीज़ जैसे पोषक पदार्थ मौजूद होते हैं। इन पदार्थों की मदद से आपके दांत चमकदार बन सकते हैं। केले का थोड़ा सा छिलका लें और इसके सफ़ेद भाग को दांतों पर 2 से 3 मिनट तक घिसें। इसके बाद इसे 15 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें और किसी अचछे टूथपेस्ट से दांतों को साफ़ करें। 2 से 3 हफ़्तों तक ऐसा करने पर आपको बेहतर रिजल्ट  नजर आने लगेगा।
14. किशमिश 
किशमिश इस्तेमाल से आपके पीले दांत सफ़ेद हो सकते हैं। जब भी आपको समय मिले तो किशमिश चबाना शुरू कर दें।  इससे मुंह के अंदर लार बनेगी और प्लाक पूरी तरह हट जाएगा।
15. दूध और दही 
आपके दांतों को अच्छे से स्वास्थ्य के लिए कैल्शियम और फॉस्फोरस की आवश्यकता होती है। आप दूध और दही के मिश्रण की सहायता से पीले दांतों की समस्या को दूर कर सकते हैं। इससे आपके दांतों के इनेमल में खनिज की मात्रा दोबारा भर जाती है। चमकदार दांतों के लिए यह काफी बेहतरीन उपाय है।

एक बात का ध्यान रहे कि गलत खान-पीन की वजह से भी दांतों में पीलापन आता है। फास्ट फूड, मीठा हमारे दांतों पर चिपक जाता हैं जो दांतों को पीला बनाता है। सबसे पहले तो अपने खान-पान का ध्यान रखें। ऐसे फल और सब्जियों को खाएं जिन्हें चबाने की जरूरत पड़े।

Dental Bleaching Is It a Requirement or a Craze?

BDS, MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist, Gurgaon
Dental Bleaching Is It a Requirement or a Craze?

How do your teeth become stained?
Teeth discoloration is generally caused by stain causing beverages. These include coffee, red wine, tea and some other hard drinks. Use of tobacco, excessive fluoride and dark colored berries may also cause staining of teeth.

Why do you need dental bleaching?
Our tooth is the hardest calcified substance, which mechanically helps us to break food particles into minute ones so that they are easily digestible by the body. They aid in our appearance. Hence, having white stain free teeth is a joy.

The concept of dental bleaching or teeth whitening
Dental bleaching or teeth whitening is a process of removing the stains from our teeth and to reveal them as milky white. There are 2 types of teeth whitening, whiten and non-whiten. Dental plaque, betel chewing, tobacco tar, drinking dark color liquids like coffee, tea are some reasons why our teeth get stained. The mineral structure of the tooth becomes phosphate deficient. The enamel layer gradually thins and gets perforated. Hence tooth whitening is required. 

The dentist removes the eccentric stains as well as intrinsic stains using hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide is available as bleaching strips, bleaching pen and as bleaching gel for tooth whitening. Laser tooth whitening technology is also used for this purpose. Increases in the sensitivity of the teeth, irritation in the gums are some of the side effects in teeth whitening process. This procedure of teeth whitening must be essentially done under medical supervision. This is not a one time job and may require more sittings with the doctor depending on the amount of stain in the teeth as well as the whiteners required.

Bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:

  1. Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
  2. Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

Whitening Procedures

  1. Vital Whitening: It is performed on teeth that have live nerves. Here the gel is applied directly on the tooth surface.
  2. Non Vital Whitening: This procedure is applied if the patient has undergone root canal treatment.

Is dental bleaching a requirement or just a craze?
Dental bleaching should not become a craze or mania because unhealthy obsession for extremely white teeth will lead to body dysmorphic disorder. This is a mental disorder in which a person cannot stop thinking about one or more perceived defects in his or her appearance.

Teeth whitening should be done only when necessary. People who have unrealistic expectations with:

  1. dental bleaching should not opt for this procedure.
  2. Also, bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:
  3. Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
  4. Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath. As far as bad smell from your nose is concerned kindly visit an ent specialist for the same.

I have suffer from yellow teeth.
What should I have to do to reduce the yellowness of teeth.
There is a procedure known as bleaching which will whiten your teeth. First scaling and polishing of the teeth is performed followed by bleaching with lasers. Brushing keeps your teeth clean, free from decay and deposits but every person has his/her own natural colour of teeth so you cannot change your teeth colour by brushing but with bleaching we can. Consult the dentist to undergo this procedure of bleaching.

Things you need to know before undergoing root canal treatment

MDS - Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Things you need to know before undergoing root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is an effective procedure which is used to treat a tooth whose pulp has been infected. The treatment helps to remove the elimination and further protects the tooth from future microbial attacks. Root canals are physical hollows in a tooth which naturally consists of nerves, blood vessels and other cellular beings.

Learning about Root Canal Treatment-

Before one decides to go for root canal treatment, it is important to realize that this method is useful for preserving a dead tooth, not to save one. So, why does one keep the old tooth which is beyond repair? One can pull out the dead tooth and fill the gap with an implant along with an artificial tooth. However, the main reason for doing this is because it is much simpler than an implant. Even though the old tooth is dead, one can immensely benefit from keeping it as its structure will help you to chew food and talk properly.

In root canal therapy, the doctor cuts off the infected nerve tissue inside the tooth so as to prevent it from infecting the rest of the tooth. But there are consequences of root canal therapy as well. A root canal procedure makes the tooth brittle and much more fracture prone. This is because the inside of the tooth has been removed leaving the outside shell dry and brittle. This is why a root canal therapy often involves a second procedure called crown. A root canaled tooth needs to be protected because the tissue inside of it has been removed. Here comes the crown. The crown is a strong outer covering which is even stronger than the enamel which preserves the structure of the tooth thus preventing fractures.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may result in failure of the root canal treatment due to decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth structure.

Factors Determining the Success of Root Canal Treatment-

A root canal therapy is an attempt at saving the remains of your tooth. However, sometimes the damage is too much or the enamel is too brittle to withstand the procedure. These factors may cause the loss of a tooth.

Many factors contribute to the success of root canal treatment and not all factors can be determined in advance. Some of the factors are:

  1. individual resistance to infection.
  2. the size, shape and location of the canals.

A case may be more difficult if the tooth has blocked, curved, or narrow canals. The treatment may not relieve the symptoms and treatment can sometimes fail for unexplained reasons. If treatment fails, other procedures (including re-treatment or surgery) may be necessary to retain the tooth, or it may have to be extracted. During and after treatment, the patient may experience some pain or discomfort, swelling, bleeding and loosening of dental restorations and may also need antibiotics to treat any associated infections.

Another factor in this method is the development of an abscess near the root of the tooth if some of the infection remains back or if the antibiotics are not effective enough. Root canal instruments sometimes separate (break) inside the canal which may or may not effect the prognosis. If the separated fragment cannot be retrieved, it may be sealed inside the root canal, or require additional treatment in the future.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may fail if the root canal treatment, decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth.

Alternative Techniques-

The alternative techniques to root canal therapy include either no treatment or tooth extraction. Tooth extraction may be followed by any prosthetic replacement procedure like dental implants or a removable denture. One can also fix a partial denture which is commonly called a bridge in medical terms.

Conducting no treatments is often accompanied by factors like occasional pains, infection and a possibility of deterioration in the dental infection such that the tooth will no longer be restorable. If a massive loss of tooth structure occurs, then extraction may be the only option.

Taking all factors into consideration, root canal therapy is a very effective method for removing dental infection and is the best possible method in the field.

Proper brushing

Proper brushing

One of the easiest steps to do to help your teeth keep clean. When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line. Both the gum line and the tooth surface should be in contact with the bristles. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up and down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums, place the bristles at a 45degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up an down motion. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria, which might cause bad breath.
Try to brush at least twice a day to prevent acid buildup from the breakdown of food by bacteria. However, if your work or activities prevent you from doing this, thoroughly rinse your mouth with water after eating to minimize the amount of food that would serve as substrate for the bacteria.
