Tooth ache may be due to cavities or due to gum infection. If you have pain which cannot be located to a specific tooth it may be due to gum infection. Kindly visit your dentist he may look into your mouth which you cant do and he may give you relief.

I am 34 years old I have inside mouth upper jaw is in black color. so, what is the reason. please suggest.?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Going by your discription I think you are talking about upper jaw gums. If yes, then there is a procedure called depigmentation of gums. That black colour is usually due melanin which is responsible for skin colour. Check on internet or consult me or see your doc. Will be happy to help u.

मै ४८ वर्ष का हूं मेरी कमर मै दर्द करीब एक माह से है ़और मेरी ओठ मे सात माह से एक छाला है जिसकी ऊपर त्वचा नही आ रही है
Nutritional deficiency, excessive stress & debilitating disease can cause ulcer. Exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet. Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations Avoid irritating substances, such as… o Tobacco o Hot, spicy foods o Alcoholic beverages o Mouthwashes that contain alcohol o Products high in acid, such as citrus fruits and juices You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with Multivitamin cap, for five days in the morning after meals & antiseptic ointment or gel on the area of ulcer until then. Mouth sores are common and rarely cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist

I have developed tooth sensitivity off late which occasionally bothers me. I took merc sol for two days and it worked for me. I think I have chipped off a small piece of tooth on the top left row. Only had guava and some horse gram. What could cause teeth to chip off what can be done to safeguard the other teeth from chipping.

Chipping can result if their is an unusual sudden pressure at a particular area of a tooth or it can also happen if you have caries beneath between two teeth surfaces and sudden pressure can cause fracture of the tooth wall. Depending upon the location & extent, a restoration/ filling or a full coverage crown can be placed to save the tooth from further damage. If because of age attrition of teeth has happened, then a procedure called coronoplasty can be done to get relief from sharp teeth inducing pressure. Good luck!

Hi lybrate-user, tooth removal should be last option. Pain n blackening in tooth can be treated extremely well with v good prognosis by fillings n root canals. And since its your last tooth try your level best to get it saved if you want to have fixed teeth.

My front teeth broken half, but now no more such incident? Feeling normal also. Is there any reason for worries?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Asansol
It is a big issue. See your teeth contains pulp, may be that is not paining because it is already dead or necrosed. But that chamber may become infected. Later on u may get a pain with following a lesion beneath the root of the tooth. Better visit one dentist nearby and get one x-ray done and do the remaining treatment. After the treatment your face and smile will look normal also.

How Dental Flossing Can Be Important and Helpful

Post Graduate Fellowship In Micro Dentistry, Esthetic Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
How Dental Flossing Can Be Important and Helpful

Poor dental habits often invariably lead to complicated dental issues and hence expensive treatments. And, to maintain the general good health of your teeth, brushing is not enough. It is very important to regularly floss too.

Difference between brushing and flossing: For those who consider brushing and flossing to be similar, here is where the difference lies. While you brush your teeth, it's only the surface that gets cleaned. But the dirt that gets accumulated between the gaps of your teeth can only be cleaned by using a thin nylon thread, and that process is known as flossing. Avoiding flossing can lead to cavities and decay and also gum diseases at times.

Benefits of Flossing

  1. Reduces the risk of heart diseases: Periodontal diseases, that is, diseases of the teeth, gums and mouth, can lead to heart diseases. Thus maintaining oral health can reduce the risk of any major ailments manifold. It can also help you to avoid the risk of diabetes and high body mass index.
  2. Cleaner breath: Flossing cleans the dirt between the teeth that gets accumulated when we eat. The accumulated food, if not taken out, starts decaying and creates bacteria and results in bad breath, leaving a bad impression.
  3. Cleaner and glossier teeth: Flossing regularly keeps your teeth clean and white. It also makes your teeth gleam, making your smile more attractive.
  4. Keeps you healthy while you are pregnant: During pregnancy, some women suffer from enamel wear and gum diseases. Thus, flossing regularly even while you are pregnant can help you maintain your dental health.

Types of dental floss:

  1. Waxed and unwaxed dental floss: Waxed dental floss is much smoother than the unwaxed version, and as a result, moves more easily between the teeth. On the other hand, unwaxed dental floss can be a little rough to use in the beginning.
  2. Teflon floss: Made of Teflon, this type of floss is extremely easy to navigate between the teeth and rarely gets stuck between teeth.
  3. Thread floss: This one works just like the other flosses, but is simply made of a different material, that is, nylon.
  4. Tape Floss: As compared to the other type of flosses, this particular floss is a little thick and is suitable for people who have wider gaps between their teeth.

You can also stick to flossing aids for maintaining proper dental hygiene. They are usually perfect for people who find the conventional forms difficult to adapt to. However, such aids may be more expensive than regular flosses.

You can also use a toothpick or an interdental brush in case you wish to avoid flossing. Just make sure that the dirt comes out, no matter which method you take up! Keep Smiling!

It doesn't matter whether u take which ever form of medicine to control your sugar level. The only thing which matters is that your blood sugar level should be under control. Then u can undergo any form of surgery.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
My teeth are very pain in right side.What can i do?
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash or take c. Amox 500mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Metrogyl 400mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Imol 1-1-1, thrice daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, allergy), c. Becosules 1-0-0 once daily all for 3 days only. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.
