Causes Of Yellow Teeth?
Assalamualaikumwarahmatullahi wabarakatuh and Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask about my teeth, in the past my teeth were not yellow. But every time a new tooth appears, my teeth turn yellow (yellow from the first tooth change). I have brushed my teeth up to 3 times a day but nothing has changed. I was embarrassed to smile. Please explain the cause and what medicine is the doctor? Thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Yellow teeth can be caused by various things, including:
Poor oral hygiene Consuming coffee and tea Consuming soft drinks or dark and sour drinks Consuming light-colored fruits, such as tomatoes and blueberries Eating sweets Eating wine Smoking Smoking Genetic or hereditary factors
As for the problems of new teeth (permanent teeth) and old teeth (milk teeth), this is indeed natural because as time goes by, your permanent teeth will definitely be exposed to these things more often than your baby teeth. For example, for smoking, coffee consumption and wine consumption, small children whose teeth are still majority of milk teeth do not do so it is natural that their teeth are whiter.
Therefore you can consult a dentist to find out the possible causes of your condition, and at the same time provide treatment, such as the use of dental molds and teeth whitening lasers. As for brushing 3 times a day, this is actually not necessary, because brushing too often, especially too hard, can cause the tooth layer to erode and cause new problems.
Meanwhile, prevent your teeth from getting yellow by brushing your teeth regularly with whitening toothpaste, using mouthwash, avoiding the things we mentioned above, and using a straw if you want to consume drinks such as juice, tea or drinks fizzy. So, hopefully answering your question.
