Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, you may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. 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. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

Yellowing of teeth is due to upatake of yellow stainn from the oiland turmeric used in cooking. You can't avoid the stain. But doing regular rinses after meals can minimize the stains. And give a more whiter look.

My one Tooth at lower Job is removed, I wish to fit new with bridge etc. How far it will cost?

It would be advisable to have the missing tooth replaced by a bridge or for more longer durability an implant will be better. Regarding the cost - for anything you want to get done - there are lot of variations. The better the quality and the material as well as the expertise used the higher the cost. Its like you have a shawl or a stole - the better the material the greater the cost and if more the workmanship on the same again the greater the cost. So it depends what you want to ge done. Metaless crown and bridges are the best available today - E max or Lava but then these are also expensive to the dental surgeon.

An infected wisdom tooth has to b removed sooner or later. Earlier the best! your osmf condition is challenging fr the dentist to remove wisdom teeth but is not impossible. There is no alternate way. Pushing time for long periods with medications is not advisable. Consult a oral n maxillofacial surgeon n get your wisdom tooth removed soon. Lasers too help treat your condition these days! donot stop taking lycopene and efcorlin unless advised to. Take care!

Teeth yellowing might be reflecting some problems with the enamel of teeth or it can be due to improper brushing. The former will need cosmetic intervention from any cosmetic dentist. The latter can be taken care of by professional cleaning.

Dry Socket - Causes and Treatments

MDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Are you experiencing toothache that continues for several days after having a tooth pulled out? Does the pain keep on worsening, and continue over several days? These symptoms is a clear symptoms that you are might imply that you are suffering from a condition known as dry socket or alveolar osteitis. The socket refers to the hole in the bone from where a tooth has been pulled out. A blood clot gets formed in the socket for the protection of the underlying bones and nerves. Sometimes, the clot might dissolve some days after the extraction, which leaves the underlying bone and nerve exposed to anything that enters the mouth, such as air, food and , water, etc. This may cause an infection accompanied by severe pain.

Causes

Several people are more prone to getting a dry socket after having a tooth removed. This includes people who smoke a lot, have a poor sense of oral hygiene and people who get their wisdom tooth pulled. People using birth control pills and the ones who face unusual trauma during tooth extraction are also likely to get dry socket.

Symptoms

The site from where the tooth has been removed will have a dry opening with a dark blood clot present in it. In case there is no blood clot and only whitish bone in the area, dry socket is indicated. Bad breath and foul mouth odor are observed.

Treatment

Several over the counter, nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory medicines or NSAIDS are prescribed for easing the pain, and discomfort caused because of dry socket. These medicines are not sufficient at times and stronger medicines have to be taken. Sometimes the affected area is anesthetized.

Your dentist will clean the socket and remove any kind of debris from the socket hole. The socket will then be filled with a medicated dressing for healing. A special paste may be used as well. You need to visit the dentist frequently for changing the dressing. This must be continued until your pain goes away, and the sockets are healed. Several antibiotic medicines may be prescribed in order to prevent infection in the socket. You must rinse with salt water or with a special mouthwash regularly for fast and effective recovery.

You should strictly avoid cigarettes and other tobacco products after the treatment of dry socket as tobacco is a strong risk factor. Any habit or practice which might hamper blood clotting should be avoided. If you take birth control pills, always have a tooth removed on the day when you receive the lowest dose of estrogen as estrogen hampers blood clotting. Your dentist plays a very important role in treating dry socket, therefore regular visits to the doctor are a must and you should visit him regularly.

Hi lybrate-user, a mouth ulcer is a painful sore inside the mouth, on the tongue, soft palate (the back portion of the roof of your mouth), or inside the cheeks. Sores in your mouth are round, white, or grey in color, with a red edge or border. The condition is usually becomes okay within 7 days. But if it persists beyond that, or if multiple ulcers keep re-appearing, medical advice must be taken. In severe mouth ulcer attacks, you may also experience fever and physical sluggishness. Taking vitamin b12 supplements along with a suitable gel for pain is the best remedy.
