Dear Lybrate user, bad breath can be due to an unclean tongue, decaying tooth, reduced flow of saliva in mouth etc. Consult your dentist to know the exact cause and follow the treatment accordingly. Natural Breath sweeteners like saunf (fennel seeds) he; lp in increasing saliva flow.

You need to get dental cleaning and polishing done from a dentist. If teeth are yellowish we need to find the cause for it. Also teeth whitening (bleaching) or esthetic rehab like laminates or veneers can help you.

Yes gaps can be covered but the treatment depends upon the extent of gap present. So you need to atleast share your facial picture showing the gap present. Best treatment option can be discussed then.

Salivary Gland Disorder - Common Causes Behind it

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist

Remember the sensation similar to that of a warm liquid flooding your tongue when you smell a deliciously baked chocolate cake? Or a freshly baked brown bread early in the morning? That is your saliva. The salivary glands present in the inner linings of the lips, cheeks and the mouth produce saliva. Saliva protects one from tooth decay, keeps the mouth moist and helps in the digestive process. Any disease that affects the saliva gland comes under the domain of ‘salivary gland disorders’.

Causes

There are three salivary glands in humans known as the Submandibular, Parotid and the Sublingual gland. The most common disorder that affects salivary glands is that of ‘blocked salivary glands’. Sialothiasis is a disorder wherein, calcium stones are formed in the salivary glands, which obstruct these glands. Obstruction of the salivary glands leads to an infection called sialadenitis, caused by strep or staph bacteria.

Sjogren’s syndrome is another condition which affects the salivary glands. In this condition, the antibodies in the body target the cells that produce saliva. This occurs mostly in women who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Viral infections are also common; flu virus and mumps are a few examples.

Symptoms

The symptoms of salivary gland disorders are problem specific; for Sialolithiasis, you will feel a painful lump below the tongue, which tends to aggravate when you eat. In case of Sialadenitis, there will be an odorous pus-filled discharge along with a lump beneath the chin. For viral infections, the symptoms will include muscle pain, swelling and fever. Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry eyes and mouth, joint pain, fatigue and tooth decay.

Treatment

Like the symptoms, the treatments for salivary gland disorders are also problem specific. For salivary gland tumors, surgery is required. If it is a malignant tumor, then radiation therapy will be prescribed which may cause dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia). For bacterial and viral infections, anti-bacterial and anti-viral medications are required for treatment, respectively. It is also important that you take good care of your oral health for an even more effective treatment. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis will help keep salivary gland disorders at bay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, follow the below treatment before going for surgery :- Gums become so tender and pus oozes when you press the gums, this is the main symptom of Pyorrhoea.Loosened teeth roots. Sepsis of digestive tract or liver disorders, if pus persists for a longer time. Take BC No. 18, 5 tabs thrice daily. Take single dose of Merc sol. 200 Ch , 5 drops . Home remedies :- Guava: Unripe guava is rich in Vitamin C and is a styptic agent. Chewing raw guava arrests formation of pus in gums and is an excellent home remedy for Pyorrhea. Lemon is rich in Vitamin C. Lemon strengthens teeth and helps in preventing inflammation of gums. Regular use of lemon is an excellent home remedy for Pyorrhea.

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.

Hi. You have problem of mouth ulcer repeatedly that may be because of stressful lifestyle. Gastric problem may cause mouth ulcer. Drink more water. Avoid spicy foods. Avoid gaseous foods like cabbage, cauliflower etc. Avoid stress. If ulcer is long standing duration than you have to take biopsy for further diagnosis. Take care. Thank you.
