How do I know if I have gum disease?

How do I know if I have gum disease?

How do I know if I have gum disease?
Gum disease is generally painless, even though it damages the bone supporting the teeth. Gum disease (gingivitis) will usually show itself as red, swollen gums that bleed when you brush or clean between your teeth. Many people are worried when they notice their gums are bleeding and then brush more gently, or stop altogether. In fact, it is important that you continue to clean regularly and thoroughly if you are to fight the gum disease. If the bleeding does not go away within a few days see your dental team to ask for their advice.

You can keep a cotton soaked in Clove oil in the cavity of the paining tooth or simply a Clove bud into the cavity and press it between jaws. Take a Crocin tablet if pain persists. See a dentist as soon as possible. Dentist will diagnose the problem by taking an X-ray of the concerned tooth and suggest you a proper treatment for that.

If there is pain, there has to be a cause for it. Look out for any decay or any food lodgement in that area. Whenever there is decay in tooth it initially causes sensitivity, but if your decay is deep and extends till the nerves of the tooth then you may feel pain in the tooth. Treatment of superficial decay is filling and deep decay is root canal treatment. Another cause of pain in tooth can be spacing in between two teeth leading to food lodgement which ingresses into your gums and causes pain. You can get this problem treated by having a deep cleaning of your gums and some necessary measure to close the gap depending on hw much of gap you have. please consult your doc and get the problem diagnosed so that you can obtain suitable treatment. For temporary relief you can take some over the counter pain killers which suit you.

I am suffering a problem of mouth chale regularly. I drink lot of water but this problem is same. Please suggest.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Sir due to enzymes deficiency in saliva will we have continuous bad breath even after maintaining good oral hygiene.

Sir due to enzymes deficiency in saliva will we have continuous bad breath even after maintaining good oral hygiene.
See if your saliva is thick and ropey, no matter what you do for oral hygiene maintenance, the oral health would degrade and there will be bad breath. Thick saliva increase gum infection, cavities and other soft tissue infection. So you need to once chk it up from a dentist if this is the cause of your problem.

The black spot you see must be a carious tooth which can be a problem to you later on as a painful tooth so you must go for the restoration with tooth matching laser filling. Second problem of loose gum must be due to the periodontal problem of either improper brushing or you must be needing a complete oral prophylaxis.

This concept is totally wrong. u should brush ur teeth before going to bed to prevent dental problems. As there is less flow of saliva at night, so bacteria gets more time to attack on ur teeth ,hence producing more dental problems.

In front teeth gap is producing now is 2 mm gap I won close the gap what should do sir.

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
In front teeth gap is producing now is 2 mm gap I won close the gap what should do sir.
Hi, The process of filling the gap between teeth is known as orthodontic treatment, wherein you will be required to wear braces (an appliance with wires) for anywhere between 6 months to 1 year, depending upon the exact condition of your teeth. However, this treatment will serve as a permanent solution to your problem. You teeth alignment will become better and your smile will improve, These days, braces, similar to the color of teeth (ceramic braces) have also become available which are potentially much better looking than the conventional silver appliances. Hope that helps.
