I am suffering with teeth pain & please suggest me the best paste to clean up pluck in my mouth.?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hi pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, tooth abcess, gum disease, and fracture of tooth. You need to go for proper investigation to rule out the cause of pain. After that treatment plan can be decided. For plaque, get scaling done. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

You can opt for cosmetic treatment which is painless and less time consuming and economical compared to braces. So visit a dentist and ask for direct composite veneers.

I have a lot of cavity and needs a lot of scaling.Is there any possibility to clean the teeth thoroughly without losing the enamel and fill the cavities.Please note that I am 59 years old.

MDS
Dentist, Nellore
One of the side effect of your medicine is dry mouth, hence you are having high carious risk. The latest treatment trend in dentistry is minimal invasive techniques, so only the area that is having cavity is treated.

Is it possible to transplant broken teeth ?

BDS
Dentist,
Yes, but,to some extent.Tooth should not be broken into pieces. It should be in one sigle piece, as natural. When tooth comes out as a whole, this is now called as avulsed tooth. Avulsed tooth should be placed back, within 30-60mins. Till den the patient should keep it in milk/tooth solution or inside his mouth between the cheeks and gums. The tooth is placed back and splinted. Remember, now the tooth forms a firm bonding with the bone, (called ankylosis) And would be difficult to extract in future, if necessary. Anyways, the success rate of the above mentioned procedure is less, but few dentist practice it.

Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Go for professional scaling and polishing of teeth. Quit the habit of smoking or tobacco chewing if you have any. For more whiter teeth, you can also go for bleaching.

FOR TEETH PAIN: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. FOR BAD SMELL: Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

First completely quit the habit of tobacco chewing. Start taking some vitamin supplements with lycopene in it. Yours is just the beginning. So don't worry. It can be treated with medication n mouth exercises. Avoid oilly n spicy food completely. Eat healthy and balanced diet.

Our teeth perform the primary function of breaking down the food particles for further intake. So, healthy teeth equals to a healthy body. Visit a dentist every once in a while to keep your primary organs healthy.

At your age mouth ulcers are very common. So do not worry. This ulcers are because of stress hormones and also because of stomach upset. Both are common symptoms at your age. Always keep a 0.1%kenakort buccal paste with you and apply over the lesions whenever they recur. You will get relief in 2-3 days. Take sufficient amount of vitamin b in your diet.

I have dental problem in my mouth what should I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
I have dental problem in my mouth what should I do?
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. 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.
