Fish thorn has stuck in my mouth (above d start of tongue) and it's difficult to remove nor to swallow. Is there any remedy to get rid of it. And is there any chances of infection at that place?

Filling your stomach full before the RCT is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

How can I whiten my teeth at home? It looks yellow and I'm not comfortable with my smile. What can I do?

hello if you are using power form or ayurvedic to clean your teeth. your teeth become more yellowish with time because powder is more abrasive it will wear outermost layer of tooth enamel. and tooth become more yellowish due to exposure of inner layer dentin which is more yellowish. So avoid vigorous brushing. bleaching can be done. Which can improve your tooth shade

I am 30 years old male and having pain in my teeth from last 3 days what I will do?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
Hi. There could be cavity in tooth causing pain. Mostly it might go for root canal treatment or if its wisdom tooth then go for extraction. A xray would surely confirm diagnosis.

Also ask for polishing of teeth after scaling. Do warm saline rinses alternately with mouthwash everytime after meals.

How much does it cost for braces. And regarding period of using it. I've already built up my teeth once. Does it have any effect on using braces.

BDS, MDS - Orthodontics, Certified Lingual Orthodontist , Certified Implantologist

Treatment cost and time depends on the malocclusion (type of deformity of teeth) and the type of braces it could metal, ceramic or even lingual (braces that are invisible and are placed behind the teeth) or aligners (treatment without braces)

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

I am getting my tooth removed. If I will not go for tooth implant will it cause bad breath?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
hi..you will not suffer from bad breath but if u loose one tooth then adjacent teeth tend to come in free space hence become mobile over a period of time moreover opposite tooth try to come out of normal bite and becomes mobile with time so get it replaced ...and one more imp thing that there is gradual loss of bone in extracted socket so makes dental implantation difficult...so do not delay much..For more query feel free to ask

I am suffering from blood blister on my tongue. Please suggest me medicine n precautions.

BDS
Dentist, Vadodara
Blisters could be due to some sharp edges of tooth around tongue. If that is the case I would advice you to get it checked and smoothen the sharp edges from the teeth. It is possible its not a blister at all, in which case it would be helpful to get more information.

For safer and healthier gums, try massaging your gums with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth on a daily basis. It will increase the blood activation thereby keeping your gums healthy.

Cessation of use of a tooth pick is a primary necessity. A comprehensive oral treatment done by a dentist is necessary to prevent further complications.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I have yellow teeth since last 15yrs what should I do at home treatment please help me.

Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. You may need deep cleaning, polishing along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. 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.

I'm suffering from recurrent aphthous ulcers since 2 months, now I'm even having oral thrush. Kindly anyone help me.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with T. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. You may consult me in person. 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. If sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.
