Hello lybrate-user, you are having pain in tooth which is due to presence of cavity or caries. For that you have to visit your dentist and go for root canal treatment. For bleeding you have to go for professional cleaning of your gums and teeth.

I have an ulcer in the back side of my tongue. But wrongly I have used mometasone furoate cream usp in that tongue ulcer twice by that I have swallowed some ointment also. What will be the reaction.

BDS, MDS oral medicine
Dentist, Thrissur
Ulcers on back side of tongue, kindly mention since how long you have that ulcer and how big is that ulcer. Do not take any medication without showing a dentist or oral medicine specialist. I understood you have taken medicine, do not worry about cream you have used. Stop using that cream and consult your dentist.

Dentist,
My teeth is bleeding at the time i'm brushing. What to do sir.?
Hello Bleeding from gums is a commom problem so don't worry. What you need to do is get your cleaning done from a dentist because hard calcium deposit that is stuck to your teeth and gums (which are responsible for your bleeding) dont go by normal brushing only through ultrasonic machine available to the dentist. So go ahead and get your cleaning done. The procedure is painless and hardly takes time. Regards.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal.

Different person have different immune system (jise bimari se larne ki chhmata kahte h) and mouth sores have many reasons. Stomach upset vitamin deficiency, stress, nerve involvement. So firstly you include more salad in diet, take plenty of water, multivitamin cap daily at least 10-15 days. Check after that if not improved contact to Dr. Also apply dologel or ultigel.

I am suffering from the mouth smell. So will you please tell me what I have to do?
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

First get the teeth cleaned from dentist. He/she will clean all teeth so your bleeding problem will be solved. After that brush properly especially lower front teeth and do flossing also. Plaque should not deposit at that area. And visit to a dentist for cleaning once in a year.
