Apply kenacort oral gel 0.1% over the ulcer 4 to 5 times a day. Most of the oral ulcers are recurring in nature, they remain for 5 to 8 days and heal by themselves. If the problem is very severe, you need to visit an oral medicine specialist for complete treatment. Regards.

I'm 28 years of old boy having face digestion problem also constipation and now facing bad breath and bleeding.
I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult surgeon for further management.

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.

For a toothache, the permanent solution is only identification of the cause and its treatment. Antibiotics alone can, at best, give you temporary relief, and often, create additional problems, as in your case. Consult your dentist again so they may either stop, or change, your antibiotics, as necessary, and begin definitive treatment of the actual dental problem causing your trouble. In the meantime, you may use something like Pantoprazole 40 mg once or twice a day, Ranitidine 150 mg twice a day, etc. To reduce the gastric discomfort. You can add Cap Sporlac twice a day in case of diarrhea.

Get a new OPG done from any nearby diagnostics n consult your dentist. Yes!!! The spaces can be closed by using retainers or fixed ortho therapy, depending on severity.

Titanium is considered to have an affinity with bones and also when the new cells grow they attach to the post, thereby, making a strong bond. It is for this reason, the metal is used in dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium posts, which resemble the root of the tooth. These posts are embedded on the jawbone below the gums. This makes it easy to place missing bridge or teeth of the area where inserted. Implants are different from dentures and benefit the oral health as they are not fastened to other teeth like the bridges.

Factors to be kept in mind during the procedure:

1. Patients must have healthy gums

2. Must have sufficient bone strength to hold the implants in place

3. One must be dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene

4. Must be visiting dentist regularly

Mechanism of Dental Implant:

A strong, biocompatible material is used to make screws, which are inserted into the bone. Titanium is the most preferred material, and because of its unique property of osseo-integration (fuses with the bone), it fuses with the bone to reduce bone loss after the tooth is gone. In most cases, the titanium screws, which act as the root for the implants are placed into the bone and allowed for some weeks to few months to fuse with the bone. Then, an interim crown may be used until the screw is ready to take on an implant.

The screw is periodically monitored and once it is completely accepted, then an abutment is placed on it. This acts like a stump or a root, over which a crown will be placed. Though most implants are done for replacing single teeth, in many cases, multiple teeth may be replaced using abutments. If the missing teeth are adjacent to each other or in the same quadrant, then a denture might be overlaid over the abutments. Alternately, a partial denture may be used which is screwed over an abutment.

Things to keep in mind post Dental Implant

1. Careful brushing: Only soft bristle brush needs to be used in this regard and do not pressurize the treated areas. In this case, tenderness needs to be considered so that brushing can be conducted carefully without injuring or hurting implants.

2. Maintaining oral hygiene: Oral hygiene is the most important thing, and this is the reason you are advised to use any special mouthwash or any other flossing solution. This step needs to be continued for preventing the growth of unwanted infectious elements as that can ruin the implants completely. You should also carefully brush your teeth without affecting the implanted area.

3. Avoid smoking: You are not allowed to continue smoking after implants, as that can make the situation complicated, as a result, of which you might even experience dreadful consequences. You should follow different steps to completely curtail the smoking habit from your lifestyle.

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.

If your gums n bone beneath r in his health, braces'll b the most safest way to get your gaps closed given the duration of treatment can stretch to 2 years given your age. If you want quick results, gaps can b closed with cosmetic treatments involving capping of your teeth. However I suggest braces.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.
