If the cavity is deep. Kindly get an xray done. You might require a filling or root canal treatment. Or if its grossly broken. You might just have to get it removed.

The common causes of ulcer are bad digestion and vitamin deficiency. The other causes include hormonal changes, change in dietary pattern, increased level of stress, change in your medicine, girls sometimes gets ulcers before mensuration cycle. To treat the ulcers, start becosule tablets 3 times a day for 5 days. Apply dologel or mucopain on the ulcer 3 to 4 times a day. You can also apply glycerine. These are for the temporary relief. For permanent solution, drink plenty of water, eat more of fruits and raw vegetables, reduce your stress level and check for any other factors that are causing you ulcers.

I was checking tips related to teeth on Lybrate and floss is recommended at a lot of places. Few of these questions popped up in my mind : 1. I am curious why it is not common in India? 2. I watched few videos on youtube to learn the proper way to floss. After watching the videos I felt like it will be loosen the gums as one is putting the pressure on them also. Second I felt like it will start thinning the enamel also from the teeth. I am worried unnecessarily or care should be taken while flossing?

Remember flossing is to be used only for cleaning the between the teeth areas and is used to prevent the deposition of food particles which can lead to infection and has to be used cautiously and even in india though slow the trend is picking up and remember if you have already loose teeth than not to be done and it won't thin the enamel lining.

Very bad smell is coming from my friends mouth. I cant tolerate that. What is the cure ?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
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. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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. 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.

After meeting to a dentist the real problem and future problem will be assessed by a radiograph and then if required a tooth colored filling or RCT can be done. Tooth removal in your case is least possibility yet if there is root fracture then tooth removal can not be avoided. The gap created by removal can be restored with fix bridge which is a type of artificial tooth. It has a long life so you need not worry. Thank you.

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.

Dentist,

Human beings have different shades of teeth. Do not worry that your teeth is yellow. See to it that you have no habits. Smoking, pan, gutka, over usage of black tea or coffee and coloured soft drinks. Vigorous and repeated brushing can do only more harm. Brush only two times a day. If you are still worried consult a dentist and undergo bleaching procedure which is a tooth whitening technique. Repeated brushing will cause loss of enamel which will lead to sensitivity and yellow colour. Use a soft brush.

You probably have a decayed tooth. Get yourself examined by a dentist. An xray will reveal the problem as well as the treatment plan can be decided.

Bad breath can b caused fue to various reasons.

I have taken xylometazoline from my mouth. Is it dangerous. Give me suggestions m afraid.
Xylometazoline acts on adrenergic receptors of nasal mucosa to relieve the congestion by constricting the inflamed or swollen nasal blood vessels. If you are a patient of high blood pressure or suffering from any cardiac ailment please avoid the drug. Otherwise you may feel free to use it. Better not take overdose.

You are having mild symptoms of pyorrhoea. To clear the disease you should brush your teeth regularly twice a day. Change your toothbrush every 3 months. This can be due to vitamin c deficiency. So take lemon juice oranges guava even banana daily. After effects of injury can be solved by homoeopathic medicines like arnica 1m, phosphorus 200 and hekla lava 30.

Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

There are a lot of ways that tooth enamel (hardest substance in the body) can wear off – decay and erosion being the most common. While decay is an infectious process with bacteria playing a significant role, erosion is nowhere associated with bacteria. The tooth gets ‘eroded’ in small amounts with the various food substances that you eat. These include the sodas that wash down the burgers and pizzas, the various sports drinks that are used to boost performance, the lime and oranges that are constantly sucked, and other acidic and sugary foods.

It does not mean you should not have an occasional soda or a sports drink or a citrus fruit. It is the constant and overuse of these that is damaging. The oral pH goes to a very acidic level (below 5.5) with these which then leads to demineralization of the enamel. The environment that is usually produced by the bacteria is caused by the acidic and sugary foods.

In some cases, acids could come from an internal source too. People with gastroesophageal reflux disease may have the acid coming from the esophagus, which also can lead to erosion.

However, there is nothing to be disheartened about as the lost enamel can be replaced to restore both tooth function and appearance. The most commonly affected teeth are the inner surfaces of the upper incisors and the biting surfaces of the lower molars. The result is tooth sensitivity, darker teeth, and increased chances of tooth decay and fracture.

Repair Mechanisms: Treating erosion has two components to it – to repair the lost tooth structure and to prevent further damage. The second is equally or rather more important than the first one.

Treatment-

  1. Restorations: In mild cases of erosion, the lost tooth structure can be rebuilt with composite resins or glass ionomer cement which usually restores lost tooth structure to its earlier version. Usually done in one sitting, it should not take more than an hour. The results would last longer if further erosion is prevented.

  2. Crowns: In cases where a lot of tooth structure has been lost and the remaining enamel weakened, a new crown will need to be done. This offers protection against further decay and also restores esthetics and function quite effectively.

Prevention-

  1. Avoid overuse of acidic, sugary drinks like sports drinks and aerated beverages.

  2. Avoid sucking on oranges as they prolong the effect of the citric acid on the tooth.

  3. Include toothpaste and rinse with fluoride.

  4. Improve dairy intake, thereby providing sufficient calcium.

  5. Follow oral hygiene habits including brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits.

Lost tooth structure unfortunately cannot be regained; however, further loss can be prevented.

If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.
