Visit your dentist soon before that infection cause toothache, because once toothache will start it indicated infection at your tooth pulp and than it will require rct which will be costlier and time consuming treatment.

You should always keep your mouth moist either by taking some water in small interval or chewing gums. Do always brushing twice daily and flossing. Use mouthwash twice daily.

Common cause of ulcer is constipation. If you have it than get it treated. Avoid oilly, spicy n hard foods. Apply dologel or mucopain ointment 3-4 times a day. You can also take b complex tablets 3 times for 5 days.

For more than a year my tongue is having burning sensation or like inflammation especially during early hours of the day ie 3 to 6 hours. Dryness in mouth also experiencing. Earlier some reddish color used to appear on tongue n disappeared after a while. I took homeopathic, Ayurvedic n a lot of Allopathic medicines but nothing happened n the problem still exists. Kindly advise.

To avoid infection and reduce pain in a first-degree burn on the tongue: rinse the area well with cool water for a few minutes. Remove any dirt or particles that may be on the burn. Wet a clean cloth with cool water and hold it on top of the burn. Suck on ice chips or a popsicle to soothe the pain. Gargle with cool water or salt water. Avoid warm or hot liquids, which could irritate the burn. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Sprinkle a few grains of sugar on the tongue to relieve pain.

Well, best treatment option is to go for laminates/ veneers/ crowns in grossly destructed teeth. A famous tooth creme such as tooth mousse and clinpro have been beneficial too.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •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 your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Brush twice daily n avoiding sweet won't solve a problem. Make an habit of gargling with water after you eat or drink anything. Avoid sticky n junk foods. Use a mouthwash regularly. Get scaling and polishing done. Regularly visit a dentist at least biannually.

Pros: Removable- easier to maintain oral hygiene, can eat what you want, take out for sports and playing insturments Virttually Invisible- more aesthetic than metal braces and clear braces Comfortable- no wires or brackets against the inside of your mouth 3-D simulation- video gives patient an idea of the treatment goal prior to starting treatment and may be a motivating factor Fewer Emergencies- no poking wires or broken brackets FDA approved material- safe and no concern over metal allergies Treatment of choice- for certain malocclusions, it may produce a better result in a shorter amount of time Cons: Require excellent cooperation- if they aren't worn as directed, the teeth won't move Require removal for eating- take aligners out for anything but water, followed by brushing or flossing, before replacing aligners Cost- may be higher cost for Invisalign than braces (not the case in our office due to Invisalign volume but will differ by provider) Transient lisp- whether with brackets or aligners, there is an adjustment period and a slight lisp should be expected at the beginning Changing treatment- treatment set once the ClinCheck is accepted. Direction of treatment changed by new impression and starting again New aligner every 2 weeks- while this doesn't mean you see the orthodontist/dentist every 2 weeks, you will have new pressure on your teeth that often. Most patients experience some tooth discomfort for a day or two with each new aligner The final word: Depending on your malocclusion, Invisalign can be an excellent method of straightening your teeth and providing you with a perfect bite. Keep in mind that Invisalign is an ever-evolving technique and requires the orthodontist/dentist to have a firm grasp of tooth movement using a removable appliance. Currently, the majority of certified Invisalign providers do not have a firm understanding of moving teeth with Invisalign, as there is a big difference between how teeth should and can be moved in terms of order and direction. Invisalign isn't applicable for all tooth movements, but an experienced provider will be able to address a wider variety of situations.

Mouth ulcer is most commonly caused by poor diet, nutritional deficiency, constipation or excessive stress. You need to start taking multi vitamins. Avoid junk food avoid excessive stress. Avoid too hot and spicy food.
