  • If you are having discomfort due to erupting wisdom tooth warn saline rinses can help. Put a quarter teaspoon salt in lukewarm water and use it to rinse 3-4 times a day.

  • If you have toothaches, swelling and ulcers, or bleeding from the gums contact a dentist. Avoid self-medication. You can get in touch with us on 9318481183

  • Avoid using toothpicks, or pins to take out food dislodged between teeth or in cavities. Use floss or interdental brush to take it out.

  • Use antibiotics only on prescription of your dentist. Unnecessary usage may cause antibiotic resistance.

  • If you see any cavities developng on your teeth (which look like white spots/ orange-brown spots) make sure to brush that area properly thrice daily. Preventing any plaque build up on that area will prevent the decay from progressing further.

  • Make sure to brush your tongue also. A dirty tongue can cause bad breath.

  • Always keep your toothbrush atleast 6 feet away from toilet to prevent splatters from the toilet settling on your brush.

  • Change your toothbrush after you fall sick.

  • If there is a cavity in your tooth in which food gets stuck, clean the cavity with an interdental brush and fill it with a cotton soaked in clove oil. Clean the cavity and change that cotton daily.

  • Use a desensitizing toothpaste available at any local pharmacy if you are suffering from hot/cold sensitivity.
