Hello Lybrate user, I can infer from your comment that you have wound probably a ulcer in your tongue, which causes pain and is present since one year. Any ulceration in our mouth (be it in cheek, lips or tongue) if not spontaneously healed within a month tested by biopsy. For pain you can get any topical anesthetic agent in any medicine shop. I would recommend you to find an oral pathologist (specialist for diagnosing and treating such cases) and give him a visit as soon as possible.

My teeth are a bit yellowish. Suggest me toothpaste that can help whiten the teeth.

My teeth are a bit yellowish. Suggest me toothpaste that can help whiten the teeth.
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. Get an x-ray done. If there is infection to the root of the tooth, you need to get it treated. Then get a crown placed over it. If there is no infection then you can also go for veneers. The cost can rage from Rs. 2000-10,000/- depending on the case, the dentist and location of the clinic.

Which is the best toothpaste to be used for fighting cavities & even if i brush twice a day i notice cavity on my tooth some say a calcium deficiency is it so ?

BDS, MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Mumbai
Even if you brush twice a day all food may not get removed. Saliva is conducive to growth of bacteria if sugar is present in food. Go for regular dental check ups and you can treat the problem at an early stage only. Calcium deficiency is more relevant in growing children than adults.

Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored.

The third molar would be causing the problem. Clinical examination is advised to confirm the damage. Treatment can then be planned whether to save or remove the tooth.

Hi no it's not good to take such high dose. Please take an x-ray of the tooth if the eruption is impacted you can very well extract it as that will. Be a good solution. Extracting the wisdom tooth won't disturb your chewing.

I had RCT for right side lower teeth 5. After one month, I started feeling extreme bad pain which was not fully going even after painkiller. I immediately visited dentist who said a rice size extra small teeth between teeth 4 and 5 is giving me the pain so he extracted that. Next day he released pressure of RCT tooth. It kept paining so today he removed crown and have appointment for tuesday that he will remove RCT material and leave tooth with medicine. Immediately after cap removal, I got a lump behind the teeth which kept increasing in size and right now it's a pea size. I need to understand the reason of this lump which came within last five hours immediately after crown removal. How it will be treated? Do I need to redo RCT or just pus drain or extraction or just antibiotics will help.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand you had gone through a lot, but don't worry this infection is gonna subside. Mostly after root canal treatment a patient complains of pain due to two reasons either failed root canal or food impaction due to defective crown. The way you described the pain, I mean the intensity of pain suggests failed root canal, may be due to missed canal or due to improper sterilisation. This swelling is due to accumulation of pus, and most probably a gingival abcess due to some calculus or the cement with which the crown was fixed has gone in between the gums and teeth. Well xray would have given a clear picture, though I would say go for re-rct with a course of antibiotics. No need to drain the pus, swelling will subside after the course of antibiotic. Hope this helps.

Hi Lybrate user, One has to prepare himself and determined to one thing in life whether it is treatment or small concerns. As per the pain ,nowdays local anaesthetic sprays r applied before injection so that the small prick can't be felt. After treatment pain is controlled through meditation. Thanks.

A rct is treatment of the nerve of the tooth. If your cavity is deep to cause infection the root canal treatment will solve your problem. But this is if there is enough tooth structure left to save. Sometimes due to decay the tooth may be completely broken in which case it is better to remove it and make a denture etc. As replacement.

Gums are bleeding while brushing is indication of vit c deficiency. Take as much sour fruits like tamrind, awla, orange, lemon, etc. Do oral gargle with chlorhexadine mouthwash twice daily. If a symptoms still not improve in a week consult me for medication.
