It is due to mumps parotitis. Conservative, supportive medical care is indicated for patients with mumps. No antiviral agent is indicated for treatment of this viral illness, as mumps is a self-limited disease. Encouraging oral fluid intake is essential, as maintenance of adequate hydration and alimentation of patients is important. Refrain from acidic foods and liquids as they may cause swallowing difficulty, as well as gastric irritation. Prescribe analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen) for headaches or discomfort due to parotitis. Topical application of warm or cold packs to the swollen parotid area may soothe the region. Stronger analgesics may be required for patients with orchitis. Bed rest, scrotal support, and ice packs are recommended.

Cause of the recurrent apthous ulcer is unknown it's mostly bacterial or fungal infection, maintain oral hygiene, brush atlst twice daily, at night brush with baking soda, rinse your mouth with lemon water, take 2-3 leaves of neem at night, take healthy food, take lots of green veggies, lots of fruits, proteins,with this you need proper homoeopathic treatment to cure your problem permanently, soo you can contact me through Lybrate in private consultation.

While preparing for RCT:  Since infection and swelling cause pain in the affected area, ask a doctor if consuming antibiotic medicines to reduce the pain is advisable or not.

Hello, you can take homoeopathic medicines 1. Kreosotum 30 (4 drops in little water) thrice a day for 3 days. 2. Plantago q (10 drops in little water) thrice a day for 3 days and revert. Keep a gap of 15 - 20 minutes in both the medicines.

Take any pain killer, all works well in tooth ache. But this pain killer will subside your pain only. But you need to visit your dentist to remove cause of pain. If you have no other disease or allergy than you can take tab combiflam which will last for 6-8 hours.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Ulceration in your case could b due to sharp edges of your broken teeth rubbing against your cheeks. Ulcers generally take upto 2 wks to heal. Since you hv got your broken tooth removed, wait till 2 wks to see if your ulcers heal. If it doesn't you need to visit dentist for its elvaluation who'll recommend further tests. Untill then use dentogel oral ointment on the ulcer thrice daily n use bethadine mouthwash, start on multivitamin tabs too. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user. Habit of chewing tobacco products leads to submucous fibrosis which results in burning mouth, inability to open mouth. You need to go for intraoral injections which increases your mouth opening and practice mouth opening exercises daily. See a dentist soon and get the needful done.

Hello Lybrate user, we only remove teeth only if it is not performing it's function i.e chewing or aesthetics or is non- restorable. In your case you being 32 I wouldn't recommend the extraction. Yes implant can replace missing teeth but implant has a life of maximium 15 years what after that. I think you should selectively remove those tooth which are too mobile to keep them. Hope this helps.

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The mere thought of biting into something crunchy brings a refreshing thought. However, realize that crunchy things are not always good for general health and oral health. While some crunchy foods can be very good for the teeth, others can do a great deal of harm.

Given that crunchy foods are something more popular with kids, they should be taught the good and bad about crunchy foods. That does not mean they are banned from eating any bad crunchy food. There are ways to reduce the effects of eating a bad crunchy food and the children should be taught those early on.

Let us look at the bad crunchy foods first. A packet of chips or crackers may sound extremely exciting for the kid, but they are very damaging to the teeth. Pieces of these stick to the teeth and in-between the teeth, thereby attracting germs and causing decay.

Candies are the next lot. They contain a great amount of sugar that does not leave the mouth after the candy is swallowed. The sugar stays long after the candy is out of the mouth and continues to cause damage.

In both these cases, the child should not be told not to eat. The trick is to teach them that while they can eat these, it should immediately be followed by a brushing session or a thorough rinse if brushing is not possible. Get them into the habit of a thorough rinse after each meal and no crunchy food can produce the same damage.

Good Crunchy Foods: The vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the best crunchy foods to bite into. Not only are they good for overall health with their rich fiber content and vitamins, they also have a great benefit for the oral health. Any fruit from apple to a pear induces salivary glands and increases the cleansing effect of the saliva. The natural fibers also produce the same effect as does brushing for a couple of minutes. The teeth surfaces are freed of plaque and bacteria, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay. Carrots and celery also contain vitamin A, which is good for healthy tooth structure. They also are rich in water and provide good amount of water for the body. Another good crunchy food is popcorn, which not just is light on the stomach, but also has a good amount of fiber.

The next time you need something crunchy to bite on, take a decision. What you might munch into can have a lot of effect both on your overall health and your teeth. Also, watch your children and teach them how to nullify the bad effects.

Kya mein aayurvid treatment lu ya nahi Mera mauth khul nahi raha sirf 2ungli itnahi khulta hai.

Hi Lybrate-user. Apki problem ok oral submucous fibrosis kehete hain. Gutka khane se humare gaalo ki maans pechiya fibrosis ki wajaf se tight ho jaati hai aur pehle ki tarah flexible nahi rehti. Isse pehle jitna muh khulta tha wo nahi khul pata. Har baar aisa nahi hota par kayi baar aage jaake ye bahot dangerous sabit ho sakta hai. Muh ka cancer bhi ho sakta hai. Muh bilkul khulna band ho sakta hai. Sirf liquid diet pe jana pad sakta hai. Oral Medicine ke MDS degree doctor ke paas ja kar pehle checkup karwaye. Agar test ki zarrorat pade to hichke nahi. Gutka poori tarah chodne ke baad doctor aur dawayi ki madad se aap behtar mahsoos karenge. Apne doston ko bhi gutka khane se roke. Hum Manushya sansaar mein sabse best life being ka example hain. Hume ye kooda nahi khana hai.
