I have got severe tooth pain probably due to bacterial infection. Please prescribe the medicine.
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.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

Shall I go for stem cell preservation of my son. A company is offering to preserve it by extracting his milk tooth and preserve it for 21 years. They also says it ll help in curing any chronic disease for even for patents. How much ll it help?

Well, the technology is still in its nascent stage and till date, organs have not been grown that successfully, So if you have few thousand rupees to spare then definitely go for it, otherwise u can also forget the idea as its very expensive. Over and above, usually all major diseases happen only after 30 and this company is going to preserve it only for 21 yrs. Over and above, stem cells can be derived from the wisdom tooth which your son will usually get after 20 -25 yrs of age. So even that time it can be preserved.

Black spots can indicate tooth decay or may simply be a stain. Clinical check up will help decide the nature of the spot. If it appears to be decayed, the teeth can be filled and restored to normal.

In normal healthy individuals it is recommended to get the scaling and polishing done in approximately every 6 months duration. In severe cases (consider yourself among them) a more frequent visit required (say every 2-3 months) until problem subsides. A periodontist is an expert in this regard. Many times underlying diseases related to gastric, respiratory problems, diabetes or general illnessare ignored by general practitioners which often contributes to bad breath problem. So a clear understanding about your problem will definitely fix your trouble.

Just a reminder, adult teeth are not milky white, they have a slight yellowish tinge. Your teeth might be becoming yellow due to stain deposition on the teeth surface, they are not removed by brushing. Go for professional cleaning of teeth which will remove stains and calculus present on the teeth. If you are not satisfied with the results, go for bleaching.

I think I have grade 3-4 clubbing what should I do I am also suffering from halitosis.
Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. Reduce your alcohol consumption. Stop smoking. Cut down on coffee. Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. 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. If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

How to effectively handle work related stress

The statistics on stress at workplace are staggering with half of respondents in studies reporting that they face higher than normal stress levels at work. Stress is a silent killer and can lead to serious health issues like stroke and heart attack. Stress at the workplace could be due to excessive workloads, unclear responsibilities, lack of control, unrealistic deadlines and noisy work environment.

While it is a good thing to be competitive and excel in whatever you are doing, it is also very important to learn to tackle stress and take life easy. Remember, we live only once! here are some simple and effective ways to handle workplace stress:

1. Seek support at work

Research has shown that having one good friend at work reduces the chances of quitting. Sharing your thoughts with another person not only reduces the stress levels but also might lead to discovering new ways to handle tough situations. Take proactive steps to be more friendly and sociable at work.

2. Manage work better

Try prioritizing better and not expecting perfection in every task. In case your role is over-loaded, try talking to your manager to reduce the load or if possible, delegate some work. Accept that you have certain limits to your productivity and do not try to prove yourself by over-working.

3. Get moving

It is a proven fact that exercises in any form reduces stress levels. Try to exercise for half an hour daily in the form walking, swimming, playing a sport or running. You can take short walking breaks at work that can add up to half an hour in a day.

4. Try breathing exercises

Breathing deeply for four counts on inhale and exhale can reduce stress levels immediately. You can try alternating breathing exercise i. E. Long inhale with one nostril and exhaling with the other nostril, which brings focus and energy in the morning before starting work.

5. Take a power nap

10 minutes of shut eye goes a long way in recharging your tired brain. Any longer than 15 minutes will end up making you groggy. Just put your head down on the desk, and clear your mind of all thoughts for 10 minutes.

6. Eat right

Food has a big role to play in determining our stress levels. Avoid processed food, sugar and high amount of refined carbs like flour, white rice etc. Maintaining your blood glucose levels by eating more complex carbohydrates that are slowly digested like ragi, jowar, bajra gives you steady energy levels throughout the day.

7. Get enough sleep

Over-worked employees often cut back on sleep and try to squeeze in work at night. Over the long term, this practice can severely impact your health and leads to more stress. A restful night's sleep of at least 6 hours is mandatory for all adults. Lack of sleep causes irritability and diminished ability to deal with stress. Avoid looking at laptop, tv or phone screens when you are trying to fall asleep.

You have to take charge of your own work-life balance and draw the line where you feel uncomfortable since no one will do it for you. Over-working might give benefits in the short term in terms of recognition and promotion, but it causes emotional, mental and physical burnout in the long term. Stay healthy, stay happy.

Dry Mouth and Eyes - Complications Associated With It!

Dry Mouth and Eyes - Complications Associated With It!

An immune system disorder distinguished by dry mouth and dry eyes is known as Sjogren’s Syndrome. It can also cause dryness in places that require moisture, such as throat, nose and skin. Sjogren’s syndrome is often linked to other diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus (disease in which the immune system destroys its own tissues and causes inflammations). Sjogren’s syndrome normally affects people over the age of 40, and it mostly affects women.

Symptoms 
Sjogren’s syndrome has mainly two symptoms, and they include:

  1. Dry eyes: You feel like there is sand in your eyes as it burns and itches
  2. Dry mouth: You have difficulty speaking or swallowing

Sometimes, you might experience other symptoms as well, such as:

  1. Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
  2. Inflamed salivary glands
  3. Dry skin or skin rashes
  4. Vaginal dryness
  5. Continuous dry coughs
  6. Sustained fatigue

Causes
The exact cause of Sjogren’s syndrome is not known, but research strongly suggests that the autoimmune disease could be caused by genetic factors; especially if the illness has been found in more than one member of the family. Also, families with members suffering from type I diabetes, lupus and autoimmune thyroid disease can cause one or more members of the family to develop Sjogren’s syndrome.

Complications
The complications of Sjogren’s syndrome include:

  1. Dental cavities: Saliva protects the teeth from harmful bacteria that cause cavities. Since your mouth is dry, you become more susceptible to develop cavities.
  2. Yeast infections: Oral thrush, an oral yeast infection, is likely to develop if you have Sjogren’s syndrome.
  3. Vision problems: Dry eyes can cause corneal ulcers, sensitivity and blurred vision.
  4. Problems in the lungs, liver or kidneys: Inflammations can lead to bronchitis or pneumonia in your lungs; may cause cirrhosis or hepatitis C in your liver; and may lead to kidney malfunctions.
  5. Lymphoma: Some people with Sjogren’s syndrome might develop lymphoma, or lymph node cancer.

Peripheral neuropathy: Another complication of this illness is peripheral neuropathy, which is a tingling, burning and numbness sensation felt in your feet and hands.

Treatment
Sjogren’s syndrome is either treated with drugs, or with surgery. Doctors may prescribe drugs to increase the production of saliva and to treat inflammations. Alternatively, surgery is done to either seal the tear ducts or insert silicon or collagen plugs to close the ducts temporarily. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Mouth Ulcer Treatment In Hindi - मुंह के छाले का इलाज

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Mouth Ulcer Treatment In Hindi - मुंह के छाले का इलाज

माउथ अल्सर एक ऐसी बीमारी है जिसका लक्षण हमें आसानी से नजर आ जाता है. जैसे कि होठों, मसूढ़े और मुंह के किसी अन्य हिस्सों में कोई सफेद घाव का दिखना, मुंह से खून का निकलना या फिर खाते समय मुंह में जलन सा महसूस होना. इन लक्षणों के नजर आते ही तुरंत डॉक्टर से संपर्क करना चाहिए. इससे फायदा ये होगा कि यदि आप समय से डॉक्टर के पास जाएंगे तो हफ्ते-दस दिन में ठीक हो जाएंगे. यदि आप समय से इसका इलाज नहीं कराते हैं तो कभी-कभी ये कैंसर का कारण भी बन सकता है. मुंह में होने वाले अल्सर के कुछ उपचार हम आपको बता देते हैं जिससे आप राहत महसूस करेंगे.

तीन प्रकार का होता है माउथ अल्सर

1. गंभीर अल्सर
जैसा कि नाम से ही स्पष्ट है कि आमतौर से होने वाले अल्सर से आकार में बड़ा होता  है. आपको बता दें कि ये गंभीर अल्सर 10 में से 1 व्यक्ति को ही होता है. लेकिन जब आपको पता चले कि आपको गंभीर अल्सर है तो तुरंत किसी अच्छे डॉक्टर से संपर्क करना चाहिए.
2. सामान्य अल्सर
अल्सर से पीड़ित होने वाले ज्यादातर लोग सामान्य अल्सर से ही प्रभावित होते हैं. इसके नाम से भी स्पष्ट है कि ये आकर में ज्यादा बड़ा नहीं होता है और लगभग 10 दिन में ठीक भी हो जाता है.
3. हेरपेटीफॉर्म अल्सर
हेरपेटीफॉर्म अल्सर का दूसरा नाम पिनप्वाइंट अल्सर भी है. ये लगभग 3 मिमी आकार का होता है. आमतौर पर 10 से 40 वर्ष के आयुवर्ग के बीच होने वाले इस अल्सर से मात्र 10 प्रतिशत लोग ही प्रभावित हैं. ये बच्चों और बूढों में न के बराबर ही होता है.

ये हैं मुख्य लक्षण
1. मुंह में अल्सर होने से खाते और पीते समय बहुत ज्यादा दर्द होता है.
2. व्यवहार में चिडचिड़ापन आने लगता है. 
3. आपको हमेशा लगेगा कि आप थके हुए हैं. 
4. मुंह के घाव में लालपन नजर आने लगता है.

कैसे करें उपचार
1. माउथ अल्सर के मरीजों को को खाने में विटामिन-सी का प्रयोग करना चाहिए. इसके लिए आप दो-तीन गिलास संतरे का जूस प्रतिदिन पिएं. आप टमाटर से भी विटामिन सी प्राप्त कर सकते हैं.
2. जितना हो सके ज्यादा मसालेदार और तले-भुने खाद्य पदार्थों से परहेज करें.
3. ऐसे में आपको ज्यादा से ज्यादा मात्रा में फलों का सेवन करना चाहिए और खूब पानी पीना चाहिए.
4. जितना हो सके हरी सब्जियों का भरपूर सेवन करने से लाभ मिलता है.
5. यदि आप खाना खाते समय खाने में कच्चे प्याज का इस्तेमाल करें तो और बेहतर होगा.
6. माउथ अल्सर के पीड़ितों को दूध से बने खाद्य पदार्थों जैसे कि दही, बटर मिल्क और पनीर आदि इतेमाल में लाना चाहिए.
7. मासाहारी भोजन अम्लीय स्वभाव का होता है इसलिए मुंह के अल्सर पीड़ितों को इसके इस्तेमाल से बचना चाहिए.
8. मुंह की सिकाई करने के लिए आपको दिन में दो से तीन बार तक गरारा करना चाहिए.
9. सबके घरों में आसानी से उपलब्ध तुलसी के कुछ पत्ते चबाने से भी राहत मिलती है.
11. ऐसे पदार्थ जिन्हें खाने से मुंह में जलन होने या दांतों में फंसने की संभावना हो, उसे खाने से बचना चाहिए. जैस आपको अल्सर के ठीक होने तक मदिरा तथा चॉकलेट से दूर रहना चाहिए.
12. अल्सर में जलन कम करने के लिए ग्लिसरीन में हल्दी का पाउडर मिलाकर उससे अल्सर वाली जगह पर धीरे-धीरे मालिश करें. इसके करीब 15-20  मिनट बाद इसे साफ कर लें.
13. एक उपाय ये भी है कि एक कप पानी में एक चम्मच धनिया पाउडर मिलाकर उबाले. इसके बाद जब पानी ठंडा हो जाए तो उससे दिन में दो से तीन बार गरारे करने से भी राहत मिलती है.
14. पानी की कुछ बूंदों में एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा के साथ मिलाएं और उसे अल्सर वाली जगह पर दो-तीन बार लगायें और 15 मिनट बाद उसे अच्छे से साफ कर लें.
15. खाना खाने के बाद हर्बल चाय पिने से भी माउथ अल्सर में आराम मिलता है.

कैसे होता है माउथ अल्सर
1. बहुतायत मात्रा में तला-भुना और मसालेदार भोजन करने से.
2. ज्यादा मात्रा में अम्लीय पदार्थों के सेवन से.
3. दांतों की नियमित और उचित तरीके से सफाई नहीं करने से.
4. गाल भीतर से बार-बार कटने से भी इसके संक्रमण को फैलने की आशंका होती है.
5. जिस चीज को खाने से एलर्जी है उसे बार-बार खाने से भी इसके होने की संभावना होती है.
6. जब आपके शरीर में विटामिन बी और आयरन की मात्रा सामान्य से कम होती है.
