Zytee only makes the pain less. Does not cure ulcers. Find out if you have stomach / digestive problems and cure them. If you have sharp teeth. Get them ground by a dentist. If you have a lot of taryar on your teeth. Get a cleaning done by a dentist.

Hi the main aim of rct is to remove all pulp and fill the vacant space left in canals by root canal filling material and to seal the apex (the end of root canal). So even if there is a broken instrument in the canal, if the apex of that canal is sealed by bypassing the canal, there is no chance of pain or inflammation. But if the canal is left untreated because apex is not reachable due to blockage by broken file, then the vacant space left is a source of bacterial infection and can cause trouble in the future. The tooth has to be kept in observation. It may not lead to cancer but in some cases, open apex can lead to cyst formation. In that case, the root is sectioned and filling done from apex side to seal it. This procedure is called apicoectomy. Or last resort, tooth is removed.

At the age of 13 if your permanent tooth is decayed to such extent that it should get extracted then this is an alarming situation for you. But if the tooth is milk tooth then go for extraction and prevent damage to the underlying permanent tooth. In future keep your mouth clean and healthy.

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

I have inflammation in my mouth. Now my teeth have become super sensitive and inflammation is not going sing two weeks.

I have inflammation in my mouth. Now my teeth have become super sensitive and inflammation is not going sing two weeks.
inflammation can be due to caries also, Possible causes for sensitivity include: Tooth decay (cavities) Fractured teeth Worn fillings Gum disease Worn tooth enamel Exposed tooth root In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth—the part above the gum line. Under the gum line a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin. Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity. Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments

You need to get scaling (cleaning) done so as to remove all the plaque and calculus, the gum bleeding, pus (if any) and bad breath would regress over a period of 10-15 days. Also do clean your tongue properly and use a good mouthwash as well. Best thing for over all long term gum health is well controlled diabetes. Visit a dentist every 6 months to detect problems at a early stage.

You should go for dental check up. It there is calculus and stain present then go for scaling and polishing of teeth. If there is caries go for restoration of teeth i. E filling of teeth.

It seems you might have a deep cavity. In your front teeth. Kindly get an xray done to estimate the amount of damage. And you might have to get a root canal treatment done in the tooth.

You said you are having bleeding from gums and pain in tooth, this can be due to poor oral health, please maintain clean teeth and good oral hygiene. Please visit dental surgeon for checkup.

Quit habits strictly. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

It's normal to occasionally have a dry mouth if you’re dehydrated or feeling nervous, but a persistently dry mouth can be a sign of an underlying problem?

BDS

Causes of dry mouth include: Side effect of certain medications. Dry mouth is a common side effect of many prescription and nonprescription drugs, including drugs used to treat depression, anxiety, pain, allergies, and colds (antihistamines and decongestants), obesity, acne, epilepsy, hypertension (diuretics), diarrhea, nausea, psychotic disorders, urinary incontinence, asthma (certain bronchodilators), and Parkinson's disease. Dry mouth can also be a side effect of muscle relaxants and sedatives. Side effect of certain diseases and infections. Dry mouth can be a side effect of medical conditions, including Sjögren's syndrome, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, anemia, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, stroke, and mumps. Side effect of certain medical treatments. Damage to the salivary glands, the glands that make saliva, can reduce the amount of saliva produced. For example, the damage could stem from radiation to the head and neck, and chemotherapy treatments, for cancer. Nerve damage. Dry mouth can be a result of nerve damage to the head and neck area from an injury or surgery. Conditions that lead to dehydration, such as fever, excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, blood loss, and burns can cause dry mouth. Surgical removal of the salivary glands. Smoking or chewing tobacco can affect how much saliva you make and aggravate dry mouth. Breathing with your mouth open a lot can also contribute to the problem out as well. Saliva substitution: There are many home remedies to help replace the moisture that saliva provides to the mouth. These include drinking water more frequently throughout the day, especially while eating. Sucking ice chips throughout the day will help the mouth remain as moist as possible. A mouthwash can be helpful, but it can also be harmful. When selecting a mouthwash, the person must choose a product that doesn't contain alcohol, such as Biotene, for alcohol-based products will only cause further mouth dryness. Artificial OTC saliva substitutes and oral lubricants containing glycerin will provide help during eating and speaking. They won't cure xerostomia, but will provide some relief. Moisturizing the lips with a balm or Vaseline can also be helpful. Saliva stimulation: Chewing gum can help stimulate salivary flow, but it is important to remember not to use gum or candies that have sugar in them or the person will be placed at greater risk for developing cavities. Sugar-free lemon drops or other hard candies can also help stimulate the salivary glands. Other remedies include medications that help increase salivary flow such as pilocarpine (Salagen) and cevimeline (Evoxac)

Drinking tea on a daily basis is good for the health of the teeth and gums. It contains flavonoids and high amounts of flouride which keep the harmful bacteria away from the teeth.
