Well this doctor does not use any toothpaste (1:57) at least that’s what he claims. And when a doctor claims to use nothing on a public platform then I generally give the doctor’s opinion a bit more weight. 🙂

Relative Dentin Abrasivity (RDA) is the risk of the daily regimen of toothpaste to your teeth. 

The American Dental Association (ADA) and friends determined that, ideally, the RDA of a toothpaste should be 70 or below. Outside of brushing with plain water, the next lowest RDA value of 7 came in as, surprisingly, plain baking soda. Take a closer look at this chart, which is compiled from 24 sources, independent research and manufacturer data. Are you experiencing different levels of sensitivity with your toothpaste selection? Switching to a less abrasive choice may be your answer! Source: https://www.familydentisttree.com/abrasive-toot...

My dentist recommends me Stolin – R toothpaste. I really don’t know its RDA rating. She also recommends me a soft bristled brush and interdental brush.

Sidhu bhai. Foul smell has many sources. 

Sources:

1) poor mouth hygiene

2) gingivitis

3) tonsil stones

4) dry mouth

Only dentist can identify

Are you having yellow or brown hard layer coated on any of teeth? If you want exact meaning than search about dental tartar or calculus and check. @Sidhu634

Went to 2 dentist. Both recommended cleaning/scaling. Going tomorrow for it. Lets see if this helps. Last time I visited any dentist, was 5 years ago.

I don’t see any layer. What I believe is teeth have some cavity where food gets stuck. Lets see what dentist has to say if it needs filling or not

No no. Teeth does have some pits and ragged edges but no cavity. If food is getting stuck in between teeth then flossing can solve it. But if food is getting trapped in teeth then cavity has been formed and it needs to be cleaned and filled.

No such issue for me. But I have general query to all. My mouth stinks all the time. Used several toothpaste and mouth wash but after like 1 or 2 hours of brushing, foul smell comes. Consulted dentist and he recommended cleaning and filling in 1 tooth to which he quoted ₹1000 + 800. Is it normal price?

It can also be due to stomach acid problem. Not necessarily due to tooth problem

Ohh I have this issue and this is very severe. Every morning I feel like my food pipe is burning. For which I take Eno sometimes, empty stomach, don’t know if it’s bad or not.

Consult a gastroenterologist.

Toothpaste is just a lubricant with abrasive doesn’t do anything to tooth it’s the brush that removes plaque invest in good electric brush and brush twice daily .topical fluoride hardens the tooth and arrests cavities a little bit and it’s the only good thing about branded tooth pastes compared to herbal products.even if you don’t use a paste it’s still fine and you will probably know better if you have done a good job without the mint masking the bad odour
