Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Is it safe to take B-Complex capsule in case of having mouth ulcer. What can be the best treatment for this.

Is it safe to take B-Complex capsule in case of having mouth ulcer.
What can be the best treatment for this.
It is safe but it can not be sole remedy. Sometimes we need to apply topical ointments also for faster healings. Moreover every ulcer has its etiology which first needs to be cared of. Without removing the source of ulcer it can not heal by just taking the b complex capsule.

My teeth r blackish. Means there r black spots on my teeth. What should I do to get a healthy and totally white teeth?

My teeth r blackish. Means there r black spots on my teeth. What should I do to get a healthy and totally white teeth?
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

The yellow thing that you see is plaque accumulation, which also leads to bleeding gums and bad breath. You need to visit a dentist and get scaling (cleaning) done. In the mean time you can use a chlorhexidine mouthwash in a aqueous base twice a day.

I was swimming and while taking a breath I twisted my jaw muscles. I'm not able to open my mouth completely. I have difficulty in eating and facial appearance is altered a bit. There is not much of a pain though. Please help.

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Ranchi
It seems that you have got tmj (jaw joint) problem. The muscles which hangs your lower jaw gets tensed and is not working in coordination with other muscles. Or you might got slip disk at one side of your jaw near your ear. Consult tmj specialist or a good dental surgeon of your area.

Jo daant bahar hote hain unhe giswana nahi chahiye. Uska ilaaj taar ke saath daant andar karna hota hai. Ap apne nazdiki Orthodontist ka pata kar sakte ho. Orthodontist woh doctor hota hai jo taar (wire) ya surgery ki madad se daanton ko ek line mein karta hai.... is ilaaj ko 2-3 saal b lag sakte hain....

How to straight teeth and how to remove extra teeth? is it very painful?

How to straight teeth and how to remove extra teeth? is it very painful?
You can straighten teeth using brackets that are bonded onto teeth and wires passing through these brackets, which exert force on your teeth. This takes time, at least six months, sometimes a year. Another way of doing this is to add material to the sides of the teeth, or put veneers on the front of teeth to bring them in line with the neighbouring teeth. The second one takes less time, but involves filing the teeth and using chemical bonding agents. Removing teeth is not at all painful. You are given an anesthetic injection and the complete area goes numb, so you don't feel anything.

I am a 38 yr old female. I have gaps in betwen my teeth (lower and upper front teeth) becos of wich food particles get clogged. I want some treatment to close them and enhance my smile. Please suggest.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
The gap among the teeth can be treated with orthodontic treatment where you have to wear the braces or aligners and the other option you have to do the cosmetic makeover of the front tooth by laminates or veneers. But that depends on the amount of gap you have. If you can share your pics I can advice you in better way.
