Reason for the pain must be identified first! then the solution will come spontaneously! for that you must see a doctor.

I have a geographic tongue. I have consulted many doctors and they prescribe vitamins and stuff. I have those medicines and my tongue gets better for about like 2 months and then (even with the continuation of the medicines) gets back to its original condition. How do I deal with this? I have read that its incurable. What can I do to get some relief instantly?

yes it's doesn't have a cure but you can reduce the occurrence with lifestyle changes and food habits....meditation and yoga helps by cleaning our body....avoid foods which aggravate the condition....you can do allergic food testing for that...or at home by slowly introducing different food and checking which is not suited for your body

For the last 1 to 2 years black spots started appearing on the tongue which sometimes have burning sensation.

Chewing pieces of ice cracks down tooth enamel and causes jaw problem.
Yes. Chewing ice will wear your enamel off & may cause problem in the joint too. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Hello. Drinking or eating any two liquid or solid food items with different temperature is bad for teeth and body. If you can wait for 15 to 20 minutes after taking hot tea and then drink water. It will help you clean your teeth and will not have any side effect.

If you have gums have swollen which has developed in 3 months, then may I know if you have started any medication prior to 3-4 months. If yes, it can be a side effect of that. If not, sweeling and inflammation of your gums is because of tarter deposit, you need a normal scaling and gums treatment procedure. Tc.

Brushing more than 2 to 5 minutes can seriously damage the gums.
Also putting a lot of pressure on the teeth can cause good amount of wear and tear of the teeth as well as the gums

Eating a piece of cheese after meals can prove beneficial as firstly, it helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals, and secondly, since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Tablets is just for the symptom relief and not the treatment for your cause. When pain is there, genarally treatment is not done as patient will not be co operative and anaesthesia may not also work. So Dr. Will prescribe the medicines and will ask you to visit back for treatment. Please do visit back your dentist for the proper treatment.

I went for root canal treatment and after two three setting he advice me to remove my tooth.
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 the infection is severe & if can be noticed only after opening into the tooth, extraction of tooth is required.

It is due to gum infection which is again due to calculus deposit on teeth and into the gums. You have to see a good dentist who will clean the teeth with an ultrasonic scaler or a periodontist who is specialised in gum surgery. You have to take medicines and mouth wash. If you are diabetic please check and report that to doctor. If you have any chewing habits or smoking habits please stop that. Please tell the doctor that you have difficulty in taking spicy foods and hard goods and then he will check the mucosa for any specific diseases.

Hello lybrate-user, the condition is known as periodontitis. It is caused due to improper oral hygiene which leads to continues deposition of plaque and debris which can not be removed with your daily brushing and leads your gums shift down and down. Consult nearest dentist for scaling. Thank you.
