How to treat bad odour and clean the teeth?
Q: I am 26 years old male, addicted to tea. One year back I had gone through bleaching to remove a lot of calculi from both upper & lower level. But now it has got the same status with bad odour. As far as cleaning is concerned I use to use THERMOSIL R/A twice in a day but to fail only, not only this my teeth are subsequently being sharper and sharper, I am doubtful if I will have a sound teeth one day?
A:Bleaching by the way is not for cleaning of teeth and calculus removal. I am sure you are confused between bleaching and scaling. If you had got scaling done about a year back, it is time to get it again. One needs to get it done once in 6-12 months inspite of best hygiene. I would suggest you use any regular toothpaste instead of medicated toothpaste you are currently using. Medicated tooth pastes are normally avoided for longterm use unless specially prescribed. You may also have to go for your checkup to your neighbouring dentist who would suggest you right treatment after examination.
