Mujhe muh se kafi sare baas(bad breath) ya badbu aati rahti hai mai iska bahut ilaj karya chuka per bhi theek nahi ho pa raha hai mujhe theek hona bhi jaruri hai.

Bad breath can be due to some conditions like dry mouth, gum disease, tooth decay, plaque accumulation. So it is important to rule out the cause of smell. Use sugar free chewing gum. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Keep your mouth clean. You can consult me.

Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.

BDS, Master of Hospital Administration
Dentist, Patna
Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.
Food sources of calcium. 1. Cereals grams and their products like roti chapati etc. 2. Milk and milk products 3. Calcium supplements like selcal or calcium sandoz. 4. Vitamin d is responsible for the formation of calcium so you can take food rich in vitamin d. 5. Sunlight is the best source of vitamin d. 6. Cholecalciferol supplements. Tooth decay is due to the action of bacteriae thriving on the food particles coated in the form of plaque over your teeth which us invisible to the human eyes and needs CONSULTATION WITH DENTIST. There is no medicine to stop decay but it can be minimized by following the directions given by the dentist. Hope it solves your problem.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Tooth Sensitivity

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is something that affects a number of people. It is often caused by eating or drinking something hot, cold, sweet or acidic. Under normal conditions, the underlying dentin of the tooth (the layer that immediately surrounds the nerve) is covered by the enamel in the tooth crown, and the gums that surround the tooth. Over time, the enamel covering can get thinner, thus providing less protection. The gums can also recede over time, exposing the underlying root surface dentin.
The dentin contains a large numbers of pores or tubes that run from the outside of the tooth to the nerve in the center. When the dentin is exposed, these tubes can be stimulated by changes in temperature or certain foods. 

What causes it?

Exposure of the dentin can occur due to a number of factors. Some of the more common reasons are:

  • Gum recession due to age or improper tooth brushing.
  • Acidic beverages (such as soda) that cause enamel erosion and dentin exposure.
  • Tooth grinding : this may actually cause most or all of the teeth to feel sensitive.
  • Brushing with a very abrasive toothpaste, brushing incorrectly and/or brushing more than three times a day could result in a loss of enamel.
  • Gum disease, which can result in gum recession.
  • A chipped or fractured tooth may expose the dentin.

In addition, some dental treatments can cause sensitivity. Treatments such as such as teeth whitening, professional dental cleanings, having braces put on or getting a filling placed have been known to cause sensitivity during or after the procedure.

What can I do about it?

The first step in doing something about dental sensitivity is to find out what the cause is – a dental professional can help you with this.

If the sensitivity is due to a cavity, a restoration can be placed. If gum disease is the cause, the dental professional can perform a thorough cleaning of the area.

If the sensitivity is due to exposed dentin, there are a number of steps you can take, as can your dental professional, to help reduce the sensitivity. These can include:

  • At Home: 
    • Use a very soft bristle tooth brush, with low abrasive tooth paste.
    • Brush correctly and do not over brush.
    • Use a tooth paste specially formulated to soothe the nerve endings in the tooth.
    • Use a high concentration fluoride toothpaste (given to you by the dental professional) to strengthen the tooth surface.
  • The dental professional can:
  • In Office Procedures:
  • Fluoride varnish can be applied to exposed areas, strengthening the enamel and dentin.
  • Fluoride foam or gel can be placed into a mouth tray; you then sit with this in your mouth for 3-5 minutes, providing the teeth with a high concentration of fluoride to strengthen the areas.
  • Bonding agent, the material used to stick tooth colored restorations to teeth, can be used to seal the dentin surface and provide a barrier to the stimuli that cause sensitivity.


In the end, whether you need an in-office procedure or over-the-counter products, the most important step is to see a dental professional so that he or she can determine the cause of the tooth sensitivity and help you find a solution that will work.

Can a root canal be done on the wisdom tooth? As I have both the wisdom tooth having hole and would want to fill it up and if require I am ok with root canal also. Doctors advise to take the wisdom tooth out but I do not want to loose my wisdom tooth. In one of the wisdom tooth, 15 years back a root canal was done but the silver filing came out. Please suggest a way to salvage wisdom tooth without it to take out.

Your white tongue problem is most probably oral thrush which is not related to high cholesterol or a liver disease and for that matter your liver function tests are not that abnormal Thrush is a yeast infection of the tongue and lining of the mouth. Thrush occurs in children and adults when conditions permit too much growth of a fungus called candida in your mouth. A small amount of this fungus normally lives in your mouth. It is most often kept in check by your immune system and other germs that also live in your mouth. When your immune system is weak or when normal bacteria die, too much of the fungus can grow. You are more likely to get thrush if: You are in poor health. You are very old. Young babies are also more likely to develop thrush. You have HIV or AIDS. You are receiving chemotherapy or drugs that weaken the immune system. You are taking steroid medicine, including some inhalers for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). You have diabetes mellitus and your blood sugar is high. When your blood sugar is high, some of the extra sugar is found in your saliva and acts as food for candida. You take antibiotics. Antibiotics kill some of the healthy bacteria that keep candida from growing too much. Your dentures do not fit well. Your dentist can usually diagnose thrush by looking at your mouth and tongue. The sores are easy to recognize. To confirm you have thrush, your doctor may: Take a sample of a mouth sore by gently scraping it Examine mouth scrapings under a microscope In severe cases, thrush can grow in your esophagus as well. The esophagus is the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach. If this occurs, your provider may: Take a throat culture to see what germs are causing your thrush Examine your esophagus and stomach with a flexible, lighted scope with a camera on the end If you get mild thrush after taking antibiotics, eat yogurt or take over-the-counter acidophilus pills. This may help restore a healthy balance of germs in your mouth. For a more severe case of thrush, your doctor may prescribe: Antifungal mouthwash (nystatin). Lozenges (clotrimazole). Antifungal medicines taken as a pill or syrup, these medicines include fluconazole (Diflucan) or itraconazole (Sporanox. Oral thrush can be cured. However, if your immune system is weak, thrush may come back or cause more serious problems.

tooth colour changes with age. not only smoking and drinking, but our food habits are also responsible for this. also our oral hygiene practices cause huge difference. but if these stains are in patches, it may be due to fluorosis also. visit a dentist for its proper diagnosis and treatment will be given accordingly, either scaling and polishing or bleaching or veneering.

Having an ulcer for 2 weeks is a long time. Get it checked by a dentist preferably a MDS in oral medicine and radiology. Meanwhile you can apply dologel/ultigel/mucopain and maintain your oral hygiene.
