If you are having pain in particular teeth on having hot and cold things, then you have to go for root canal treatment. For bleeding of your gums, you need professional cleaning of your gums.

I'm 28 years male, from the last 6 months my gums are bleeding and also my teeth are getting damaged due reflux of stomach acid. Previously (2007) I was diagnosed with esophageal ulcer. Recently when I visited gastroenlogist and endoscopy he said no problem every thing is clear. So how and why my gums are bleeding? And I am taking vitamin c tablets also.

Hi lybrate-user, Take 1/2 tea spoon soda bicarb (meetha soda) with luke warm water empty stomach. You can also apply it, on gums with fingers, Avoid tooth brush or use extra soft one.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

Salivary Gland Disorder - Common Causes Behind it

Salivary Gland Disorder - Common Causes Behind it

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.

You have to bear this, if there is no place for tooth to erupt it is best to get it remove. Please consult an oral surgeon and he will do needful. Go for extraction of your tooth.

My sister has bleeding from the tooth for the past two and a half months. She cleaned her mouth once. She is using chlorhexidine mouth wash. We took an opg, the report is normal. We took blood tests (bt-3min 15sec, ct-6min 45sec, platelet count-1.60, haemoglobin-12.1, blood sugar-91) everything came normal. But till bleeding continues. What we have to do now? is there any reason for this bleeding from teeth? please answer me thanks.

MDS
Dentist, Kota
It seems that there is nothing wrong with her blood profile so the thing left is health of your sister's gums. Any infection/ inflammation of gums leads to bleeding, so get her teeth cleaning done again and tell her to maintain oral hygiene good. You may need to take some antibiotics and vitamins. But to prevent recurrences you have to be very punctual about hygiene measures. Do visit your dentist once in 3 months initially and 6 months later on.

Different person have different immune system (jise bimari se larne ki chhmata kahte h) and mouth sores have many reasons. Stomach upset vitamin deficiency, stress, nerve involvement. So firstly you include more salad in diet, take plenty of water, multivitamin cap daily at least 10-15 days. Check after that if not improved contact to Dr. Also apply dologel or ultigel.

As per your complains and symptoms you may have cavity inside tooth and pulp infection. Get one x-ray done to know about the condition of pulp. It will help to decide whether you need filling or rct.

Bleeding can be caries or gum issues. If its caries you need to undergo a root canal procedure followed by cap on it. This procedure may require 5-7 visits to a dentist depending on the severity of the infection and caries. If gum issues are there you need to get scaling and polishing done from a dentist. Also incorporate use of dental floss in your daily oral hygiene procedure. Visit a dentist at your earliest.

I am facing problem with sensitive teeth. I used different tooth pastes like sensodyne and colgate sensitive nothing could solve my problem. What is the reason. If loss of enamel is the reason then how to restore it.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Jodhpur
Try any cream containing potassium nitrate, it will give you a instant relief so use it before eating anything so you can have proper diet. And than replace your tooth paste with" nafix" it will help to restore enamel. You can also visit a dentist for professional varnish application it will give instant and lasting relief from sensitivity plus also you will be getting the reason for your sensitivity.
