dental health guidelines

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
I would be happy to answer your query.

In general, dental health means it involves many things.
You should brush your teeth twice daily. You should rinse your mouth soon after eating anything. Consult a oral physician every six months and get your teeth cleaned once in a year. Avoid snacking between meals. Avoid sweets before going to sleep.
These are the possible measures to maintain dental health.

i hope my answer will help you. Take care.

Hey , the question is there are some yellow stains that have formed in the lower teeth of my friend and that should have been due to smoking ( I am assuming.)

He quit smokin long back but these stains dont go.

he occassionally has bleeding gums. (very rare)

Brief Answer:
gum infection, scaling

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your reply.
The yellow stains can be because of the smoking and deposits. The bleeding gums are because of the gum infection secondary to the deposits over the teeth.
No need to panic. Consult a good oral physician and have your teeth cleaned (scaling and root planing). And follow the previously told guidelines for good dental health. Importantly, quit the habit of smoking.
I hope my answer will help you. Take care.
