Brush without toothpaste for 3 days, then restart with a gentler or "natural" toothpaste. See your dentist if not resolving. ...Read more

I am having my braces now. should i brush my teeth immediately after drink tea  in morn, evening. my teeth is little yellowish due to my water.

Yes and no: to have a cavity, you need 3 things (acid, carbs and bacteria). If it's just plain tea with no table sugar, you dont need to brush it since there is no carbs present, just rinse your mouth with water to minimize staining. Regarding gum disease, one of the properties of black tea is mildly antiseptic and bacteriostatic (cool, isn't it?), so it might actually help fight gum disease :) ...Read more

I just got my wisdom teeth out and every time i blow my nose my mouth fills with blood.Normal? Help!i

I just got my wisdom teeth out and every time i blow my nose my mouth fills with blood.Normal? Help!i

Yes and no: Yes that is normal if your surgery was very recent. However you should avoid blowing your nose too hard. Your upper wisdom teeth may have been very close to the sinus and it is possible that you have an exposure of the sinus causing blood to drip into it. If that is the case then you need to go back and see the surgeon. If you continue to have blood seep into your mouth get back to dentist asap. ...Read more
