Oral diseases have a great impact on systemic illness like diabetes.

Maintain a good oral hygiene to be healthy, fit and fine.

Note: patients suffering from diabetes are requested to get their teeth cleaned every 6 months.

Kindly suggest me the remedy.
First is to stop tobacco altogether. You can use mucopain or dologel ointment on ulcer 3-4 times a day. For faster relief you can also start b complex tablets 3 times for 5 days. Completely avoid spicy, oily n hard foods n alcohol (if you drink).

Taking a large no. Of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

Enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods.
Proper nutrition is necessary for healthy teeth and gums. Eating a well-balanced diet gives gum tissues and teeth the important nutrients and minerals needed to stay strong and resist infections. Soft, sticky foods tend to remain on the grooves and between teeth
As and sweets, limit their intake (especially between meals).
When you do snack, choose nutritious foods such as cheese and dry crackers, vegetables, natural yogurt or fresh fruit.Choose plain milk instead of flavoured milk.

Use fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day especially before you go to sleep at night.(but avoid using with boring water) -
Use floss to clean between your teeth.

It is completely your ignorance that you did not get the proper treatment before pregnancy. Now you are in second trimester which is the best time for dental treatment but without radiation exposure and with some other precautions. You should consult a dental surgeon so that he or she can open the tooth to relieve the pain. And medication should be decided after consulting your gynacologist. Extracting a tooth may cause other complications which need heavy antibiotics that will not be suitable in this condition. Get it done before 6 month of pregnancy.

Hello, You may be having carious exposure in your teeth which have reached the deep layers of the teeth. The sensitivity to hot, cold and sweet food is the sign of deeply carious tooth. ROOT CANAL TREATMENT is the treatment required in your case, get it done from a proffesional dentist as soon as possible.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Mouth ulcers are painful sores that appear in the mouth. Although they're uncomfortable, they're usually harmless and most clear up by themselves within a week. Rinse your mouth several times a day. You can use 1 cup of warm water mixed with 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/8 teaspoon salt, followed by rinsing your mouth with plain water. Use an extra-soft toothbrush and a mild toothpaste. You can soften your toothbrush in hot water before using it. Take care.

The tooth paste that you choose to use should be clinically approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) as they are the pioneer in the field of dental and oral health care.

Ever wake up feeling like your teeth are wearing a sweater? That sticky, fuzzy film on your teeth is called plaque. Living inside of plaque is a whole lot of cavity-causing bacteria. Whenever you eat, that bacteria turns the sugars in your food into acids. Those acids slowly wear away at the hard outer layer of teeth, and eventually, a cavity, or hole in the tooth can form. Plaque is always growing on our teeth, and so it is important to take steps every day to clear it away.
If plaque is left to sit on the teeth, over time it can harden and turn into something called tartar. As tartar builds up, it can push underneath the gums, causing bleeding or irritation, known as gingivitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, and it can be stopped with good oral hygiene and simple dental treatments. If left alone, gingivitis can turn into severe gum disease, which can damage the bones holding the teeth, leading to tooth loss.



This all might seem kind of scary, but there’s no reason to stress out. Even though plaque buildup can harm your teeth and gums, it’s surprisingly pretty easy to keep it under control. Here are things you can do to keep plaque from taking over:



Brush after meals. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles, and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush for two minutes, making sure to brush the back teeth.
Floss at least once per day. The best time to do it is before bed or after your last meal. Dental floss can target the plaque that’s hiding between your teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach.
Visit the dentist twice per year for a checkup and cleaning.

Hi you need to go to a maxillofacial surgeon for thorough investigation for any problem in salivary gland, its duct, or any abnormality there. After that treatment plan can be decided.

Ways to Reduce Teeth Sensitivity

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Ways to Reduce Teeth Sensitivity

The tooth is made of 3 layers, each with unique characteristics and specific function, the enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the outermost layer of the tooth and gives the tooth it's hard and lustrous appearance. The enamel is thicker on the crown than the root and is the first one to be affected by tooth decay. The only symptom when the enamel is decayed is food lodgment and discoloration.

The dentin is the next layer, which is composed of minute fine tubules leading from the enamel to the living portion of the tooth, which is the pulp. Once decay progresses from the enamel, the dentin is affected, and this leads to sensitivity in the teeth. When the root portion is exposed to the oral environment, because the root is covered by a more delicate substance called cementum, more severe dental sensitivity ensues.

There is a sharp, shooting discomfort through the tooth to specific foods, such as sweet, acidic, or hot or cold foods.  The main reasons for tooth sensitivity include:

  • Tooth decay, both crown and root caries
  • Periodontal disease and gum recession
  • Tooth erosion 
  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Mouth breathing
  • Bruxism or night grinding 

However, there are some simple ways to manage sensitivity, which can be done regularly at home.

  1. Toothpaste made for sensitive teeth: Potassium nitrate has been shown to block the tubules and has been included as an active ingredient in toothpastes. These are very effective, and if you are brushing twice, this can be used instead of the regular paste once.
  2. Brushing: Both the type of toothbrush and the brushing technique can have an impact on sensitivity.  Change to softer brushes and learn the ideal way to brush your teeth. A lot of times, rough brushing can lead to erosion and subsequent sensitivity
  3. Rinsing: Fluoride containing rinses have been proven to reduce sensitivity 
  4. Food habits: Even before sensitivity sets in, being cautious to avoid acidic fruits and juices can help prolong the onset of sensitivity. If possible, consuming these food stuffs should be followed by brushing or at the least a thorough rinsing
  5. Sealants: If a person is prone to caries (deep pits and fissures, for instance), then it is advisable to get sealants applied on the teeth. This can reduce the instance of wearing of the enamel which then leads to sensitivity
  6. Mouth guard: If you are a night grinder, then a mouth guard can help curtail this habit and thereby reduce sensitivity.

There you go with how to reduce sensitivity. Try these simple, easy measures and go on to enjoy the sweets or hot or cold foods that you have always craved for.

Try to find out what is causing the ulcers. Is this happening again and again? is this related to your monthly periods? are you always biting your cheek or lip? did you bite your tongue accidently? do you have sharp, pointed teeth near the ulcers? are you under some stress? for relief of pain, just apply plain glycerin liquid three times a day and let it remain n contact with the ulcer by closing your mouth, not swallowing for at least 30 seconds after applying it.
