What you should know about yellow tongue

Last reviewed Tue 14 November 2017

By Jennifer Huizen

Reviewed by Alana Biggers, MD, MPH

Ordinarily, yellow tongue is a harmless condition that causes a thick, yellowish coating on the tongue. Yellow tongue tends to occur when dead skin cells, bacteria, or discoloring particles become trapped or buildup on the tongue's surface.

Mostly, yellow tongue clears up with basic home care. But on rare occasions, the condition is a symptom of a more serious health condition that requires medical attention, usually jaundice.

The signs of yellow tongue vary depending on the cause. In the majority of cases, basic at home care, especially good oral hygiene, resolves cases of yellow tongue within a matter of days to weeks.

Gingivitis: Causes, symptoms, and treatment

Last updated Thu 17 August 2017

Reviewed by Christine Frank, DDS

Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums (gingiva). It commonly occurs because of a film of bacteria that accumulate on the teeth - plaque; this is known as plaque-induced gingivitis.

Gingivitis is a non-destructive type of periodontal disease. However, if left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, which is more serious and can eventually lead to loss of teeth.

A Cavity-Fighting Liquid Lets Kids Avoid Dentists’ Drills

NewYork Times

 

By CATHERINE SAINT LOUIS  JULY 11, 2016

Nobody looks forward to having a cavity drilled and filled by a dentist. Now there’s an alternative: an antimicrobial liquid that can be brushed on cavities to stop tooth decay — painlessly.

The liquid is called silver diamine fluoride, or S.D.F. It’s been used for decades in Japan, but it’s been available in the United States, under the brand name Advantage Arrest, for just about a year.

The Food and Drug Administration cleared silver diamine fluoride for use as a tooth desensitizer for adults 21 and older. But studies show it can halt the progression of cavities and prevent them, and dentists are increasingly using it off-label for those purposes.

Tooth fillings of the future may incorporate bioactive glass.

Dec. 22, 2015

 

A few years from now millions of people around the world might be walking around with an unusual kind of glass in their mouth, and using it every time they eat. Engineers have made some promising findings about the ability of 'bioactive' glass to help reduce the ability of bacteria to attack composite tooth fillings -- and perhaps even provide some of the minerals needed to replace those lost to tooth decay.

Beyond tooth decay: Why good dental hygiene is important

 

Most of us are aware that poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath - but not brushing your teeth could also have consequences for more serious illnesses.

In 2010, researchers from New York University (NYU) concluded that there is a link between gum inflammation and Alzheimer's disease, after reviewing 20 years of data on the association.
