You are giving right treatment by providing him with vitamin b and c. But we have to check for reason of ulcers. Ulcers can be removed only by treating the reason. Are the ulcers painful? please visit nearby dentist for oral examination to diagnose the problem.

For cavity problem you have to get it filled before it turn into big whole. For bad breath, you have to maintain your oral hygiene along with your digestion system. For oral health you have to go for cleaning of your teeth. Brush twice daily and drink lot of water.

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

Mouth breathing in children is very common and while a kid with open mouth might seem cute, it is not always the case. The parents need to be made aware that a child breathing through the mouth all the time is not normal and it is high time they find a way to manage it.

A little understanding of the effects of the mouth breathing habit on the child's health in general and oral health in particular can be an eye-opener for the parent. For an educated person, there are obvious symptoms, which indicate that the child is a mouth-breather.

These symptoms include:

  1. Dryness of the lips
  2. Crowding of the front teeth
  3. Snoring
  4. Sleeping with the mouth open
  5. Recurrent infections of the airways including sinusitis and middle ear infections
  6. Bad breath

Common causes include:

  1. Chronic nasal obstruction/congestion because of which the child is not able to get enough oxygen through the nose.
  2. Enlarged tonsils or adenoids
  3. Thumb or finger-sucking habit
  4. Recurrent respiratory infections

Effects of mouth breathing on oral health:

Mouth breathing may seem like a harmless habit, but has serious effects on the oral and dental health of the child. Some of them are discussed below.

  1. Dry mouth: A constantly open mouth can lead to drying up of the saliva. This in turn leads to reduced effects of saliva including the flushing effect on the bacteria and the food deposits. This leads to increased chances of tooth decay and gum diseases.
  2. Tooth decay: With reduced saliva, the pH remains acidic for a longer period of time, leading to increased chances of tooth decay.
  3. Gum diseases: Reduced amounts of saliva also leads to increased gum disease and periodontal disease as the bacteria are not removed and have a conducive environment to act upon.
  4. Facial development: A mouth breathing child maintains a different posture than a nose breather. This leads to a narrow and long face, flattened nose, smaller nostrils, reduced facial tone, thin upper lip, pouty upper lip, and a small lower jaw.
  5. Speech: An open mouth causes the tongue to thrust into the palate when talking. This leads to altered pronunciation of some sounds; especially and can cause lisping.
  6. Braces: Mouth breathing causes multiple challenges including prolonged treatment period, inability to close the gaps, reduced stability of the realigned teeth, and increased chances of relapse. The added complication of increased gum disease and tooth decay makes it worse. The habit needs to be corrected first before going in for braces.

If that sounds like a long list, they are not all inclusive. Early intervention in the habit can correct and negate all these effects. Talk to your dentist to know how to help your mouth breathing child.

Implant is the best but the cost of the treatment is more than the normal denture. You can also go for the full mouth rehabilitation you are welcome to, consult for more details.

You require retainers after fixed appliance treatment. Retainers are the must to prevent relapse of the tooth.

Patients who have less saliva or complain of dry mouth should use sugarless chewing gums to induce more saliva which protects them from cavities in teeth.

Hi lybrate-user. Root canal is needed for the caries of the teeth. And not for Yellowness and looseness. You may take Vitamin C supplements. Massage your gums with Turmeric and Salt. Take homoeopathic medicine Heklalava 30 tds for 3 days. And avoid if any like Drinking excessive tea. Or smoking. Also consult a dentist for scaling and cleaning of the teeth.

Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. for faster result you can go for TEETH BLEACHING from dentist...

Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your query. Well have you ever wonder why we call wisdom tooth wisdom, because it comes at age, at which person has gain wisdom. Well you will surprise to know that in most of people this tooth serves no function at all. It's like a vestigial organ just like apendix so if it's causing problem get it removed. It might damage adjacent teeth which will cause you more problem. So get it removed once for all and the best part is unlike other tooth you need not to replace it. It won't effect your jaw structure. Taking antibiotics might develop resistance in your body, so don't misuse drugs as it might harm you in your future life. I hope my suggestion would help you and soon you will get rid of your wisdom teeth. Thanks and regards.

If the tooth is out because of bad gym health it may not be possible without gum therapy/ root canal/ extraction and bridges. If gum condition is healthy then braces can be done at even 40 years of age.

Bad breath or halitosis Can be due to- *Infections in gums, teeth or oral mucus of the mouth. * Sinusitis, nose block and tonsillitis will also cause this problem. *Dryness of mouth * If the teeth are crooked, ulcers may be caused and food particles may get stuck causing infection. *Eating and digestive disorders. *Dental plaque * Taking some medicines for other diseases. Taking care of your oral hygiene- •Use proper tooth brush and fluoride based tooth paste. Tongue cleaning is also very important. •Gargling your mouth after eating any food. •Avoid tobacco and smelly masala foods. •Treat underlying medical conditions •Crooked teeth to be corrected by braces at early age. •Drink plenty of water and avoid dryness of mouth. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem, without causing adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine Merc sol 30 twice daily in the morning and in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.

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.
