Doctors may assess the patient before choosing the treatment. It can be using hyalase, diode lasers or supplements. Treatment options include iron and multivitamin supplements including lycopene, an extract of tomato, and a range of medicines (e. G. Intralesional injection of steroids, hyaluronidase, human placenta extracts, chemotrypsin, pentoxifylline and collagenase). Surgery, including cutting of the fibrous bands and jaw muscles and joint, has been used for more extreme cases.

Hi, burning sensation in mouth is due to many reasons, the most common reason being mouth ulcers. You can use tantum mouthwash before meals. You need to gargle with it for about 2 minutes and then gargle with plain water and then take your food. I would advice you to visit an oral medicine specialist for finding the cause of burning sensation and treatment. Regards.

Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning 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. 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.

HOME BLEACH FOR THE TEETH 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.

Proper nutrition is necessary for healthy teeth and gums. Eating a well-balanced diet gives gum tissues and teeth the important nutrients and minerals needed to stay strong and resist infections. Soft, sticky foods tend to remain on the grooves and between teeth. Hence thorough rinsing after every meal is necessary.

Hi. I m gum specialist. Bleeding gums day and night is indicating towards infection in your gums that you need to take care of. I would recommend to get a professional cleaning by dentist to eliminate the cause of infection and brush your teeth twice daily. Use mouthwash (thermogel) as well after cleaning.
