I have been suffering from mouth ulcers since 5 year so let me know about right way to remove ulcers from root.
Mouth ulcers are mostly due to increased stress, reduced sleep, diet nutrition deficiency, viral infection, fever and hormonal disturbances. As you have long term problem of recurring ulceration you should look into your diet and the stress factor. Eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables to increase your fibre intake, try meditation to reduce the stress level. Also, take a over the counter multi-vitamin preparation daily. A more detailed regimen of medication can be suggested by your dentist after a detailed history and clinical examination.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.

visit a dentist soon as this is gum infection. you need to get your teeth professionally cleaned by dentist. gum infection develop due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth which causes gum bleeding also. professional cleaning will remove these layers and infection will subside soon. use soft bristle brush for a month or two.

I have a tooth pain yesterday, and I can see its bit swollen next to tooth, it pains a bit. Any solution?

Hi, tooth pain mostly indicates decay in your tooth. You should immediately see a dentist for a permanent solution. If the decay has reached the dental pulp then a root canal treatment would be necessary. Since you complain of swelling also in that region, there might be presence of infection. Clinical evaluation by a dentist is a must before the diagnosis is made. Regards Dr. Dhruv anand.

Irregular brushing technique will certainly cause the gums to bleed. Bleeding may also be due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a 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. 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.

I've yellowish teeth. How can I change to white?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
I've yellowish teeth. How can I change to white?
The colour of your teeth is an optical phenomenon. It depends on the thickness of the enamel. The inner layer of the tooth is called dentin, which is yellow in colour. If the overlying enamel is thin the colour of dentin is visible through the enamel giving the tooth yellow colour. I the enamel is thick the underlying dentin is not visible so tooth appears white. The whiteness of tooth depends on the thickness of enamel. Bleaching procedures are temporary solution. Genetic also plays a role. Usually a fair complexioned person will have yellow shade and a dark complexioned person will have white shade. Kindly consult a dentist he may restore the top yellow layer with lighter shade veneers or composite resins. If the teeth have become yellow recently it can be due to plaque attached over the teeth, a cleaning would be fine.

What exposes your teeth to abuse is not how much you eat, but how often you eat. Every time you eat, bacteria convert the carbohydrates in the food into acids that can dissolve your tooth enamel and form cavities

Cleaning of teeth is necessary very immediately. You will have to consult periodontist to get flap surgery done, somewhere in chennai area, and also maybe a bone graft done immediately.

AMOUNT OF TOOTHPASTE GIVEN TO YOUR CHILDREN.
While brushing your child's teeth give toothpaste of the size of a pea or a fingernail .Excess amount of toothpaste given to your child while brushing will increase the daily intake of fluoride required in the body.Which can be harmful.

My teeth's are. Broken many times in very small pieces, how can I stop & control this problem.
If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

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.

Hi, is there any method to cover the space between from teeth. If yes what it is called.

Dentist, Gurgaon
Hi, is there any method to cover the space between from teeth. If yes what it is called.
Hi lybrate-user, yes, there are two types of techniques by which this space closure can be achieved. One is the cosmetic treatment done for minor spacing in which some tooth colored fillings, laminates or veneers hides this space. Other one is orthodontic treatment for larger spaces, in which braces or wires or elastics are used to orient the teeth in correct position. I suggest you to visit a good cosmetic dentist and take the opinion about the treatment after proper diagnosis of your condition.

You need to go for investigation to find out the cause of pain. Pain can be due to cavity, gum problem or any abcess. So its important to get diagnosed for proper treatment for temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.
