Hi lybrate-user Your problem mostly is because of deposits on your teeth, your gums might b infected which we call gingivitis. You might have to get your full mouth cleaning done, ie, scaling. Medicines might not b of help.

Any erupting wisdom tooth will push its way out through gum and causes extra tissue to form around the tooth. When chewing, this tissue is trapped between upper and lower teeth which causes pain due to biting that extra gum. You can do warm salt water gargling. But its very important to get it checked by the dentist and take appropriate antibiotic to prevent complications.

Sir I am eating tobacco and I am not able to open my hole mouth so sir can you please . Suggest me any treatment.

Sir I am eating tobacco and I am not able to open my hole mouth so sir can you please . Suggest me any treatment.
Hi lybrate-user, since you are a tobacco user, it is likely that you are suffering from a condition called osmf (oral submucous fibrosis). The condition is characterized by mild red bands on the inner sides of the cheeks and decreased mouth opening due to reduced elasticity of tissues. Topical steriods usually are advised for reducing the bands. In some cases, medicines need to be injected directly into the lesions (intra-lesional injections), which brings about quick improvement. Also, for your mouth-opening to get back to normal, it will take some time, and you will be required to do some mouth exercises. I suggest that you consult me privately on lybrate. In private/video consultation, looking at the extent of your mouth opening, I will be in a better position to solve your query. Also, I will be able to tell you how to perform the mouth opening exercises. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, a mouth ulcer is a painful sore inside the mouth, on the tongue, soft palate (the back portion of the roof of your mouth), or inside the cheeks. Sores in your mouth are round, white, or grey in color, with a red edge or border. The condition is usually becomes okay within 7 days. But if it persists beyond that, or if multiple ulcers keep re-appearing, medical advice must be taken. In severe mouth ulcer attacks, you may also experience fever and physical sluggishness. Taking vitamin b12 supplements along with a suitable gel for pain is the best remedy.

Hi Hitesh... Mouth ulcers are mostly because of nutritional deficiencies and gastric disturbances... The best and permanent way of treating it is with homoeopathic treatment... But with proper consultation... Otc rarely have permanent effect. Still u may try taking Borax 30 tds for 1 day.

10 tips to look after your teeth
Good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Here are some tips to help you look after your teeth.

Brush at least twice a day. The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

Use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

Brush thoroughly. Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.

Floss your teeth daily. Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.

Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ‘eaten’ right down to the gum.

Limit sugary foods. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

Protect your teeth from injury. Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.

Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.

Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

See your dentist for regular check-ups. You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.

Hi, ya you Need to take an IOPA Xray To decide upon treatement, there may be a chance of retained deciduous tooth ,your Deciduous tooth must fall followed by eruption of permanent tooth but if does not fall that is called retained deciduous tooth or else you may have microdontia, Treatement upon the diagnosis based on the Xray.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. 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.

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.

Dear lybrate-user, First of all please stop eating gutka, next thing visit a dentist or oral surgeon for the diagnosis of the condition level it has affected you mouth opening. There are basic exercise which you must do is opening the mouth wide, till you can bear the pain. Get medicines prescribed with the doctor. Eat fruits and have a healthy diet.

I need a full mouth denture (top and Bottom). It should be very light weight and with excellent fitting. I am a diabetic on insulin for the past 15 years.

BDS
Dentist, Bilaspur
Hello, since you are diabetic since last 15 years it may so happen that dentures alone may not work very well as bone loss is high in diabetes. Although in certain cases bone loss is nt much.If u need a light weight n good fitting dentures then go for BPS dentures.Though costly they r really good. Otherwise implants supported fixed prosthesis or implant supported dentures are other good options.
