My tongue is scarred in the middle and Pink patch has formed and not going away since 1 month. I am using mouth ulcer gels but none seems to work effectively. Please advise.

That must be due to cleaning of tongue with pressure apply gentle pressure to clean the tooth surface use gargle with luke warm water with salt & turmeric powder added to it 2-3 times daily.

Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.

Please advise food sources of calcium. Also please advise how tooth decay can be arrested.
Food sources of calcium. 1. Cereals grams and their products like roti chapati etc. 2. Milk and milk products 3. Calcium supplements like selcal or calcium sandoz. 4. Vitamin d is responsible for the formation of calcium so you can take food rich in vitamin d. 5. Sunlight is the best source of vitamin d. 6. Cholecalciferol supplements. Tooth decay is due to the action of bacteriae thriving on the food particles coated in the form of plaque over your teeth which us invisible to the human eyes and needs CONSULTATION WITH DENTIST. There is no medicine to stop decay but it can be minimized by following the directions given by the dentist. Hope it solves your problem.

Good morning Thanks for the query As per your words you are having Ulcers in oral cavity due to night shift. It seems you have Apthous Ulcers. Most Common Reason for these kind of ulcers is Stress or work pressure or performance pressure or sometime lack of sleep. Have plenty of water through out day, Try to relieve your stress otlr work pressure. Ulcers will heal in some time. Till then you can apply Dologel on the ulcers (Hope you are not allergic to any drug or any other food ingridents).

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

All About Hyperdontia

Master of Dental Surgery
Dentist, Gurgaon
All About Hyperdontia

Hyperdontia is a peculiar and quite rare dental problem which involves the growth of excess number of teeth. It can appear during birth and last till the primary teeth fall out to be replaced by the permanent set of teeth, or appear with the rise of the permanent teeth. If a person shows a tendency to grow more than 20 temporary teeth or more than 32 permanent teeth, he or she suffers from hyperdontia. 

Where do the additional teeth occur?
The additional teeth or supernumerary teeth can appear anywhere inside the mouth or dental arch, but the most common ones are called wisdom teeth and they grow as anterior molars after a certain age. Extra teeth in new born infants are called natal teeth. Occurrence of more than 4-6 supernumerary teeth is rare, although there have been known cases of more than 30 supernumerary teeth. 

Why does hyperdontia occur?
1. Hyperdontia often occurs in association with a few select disorders like cleidocranial dysplasia, Ehler - Danlos syndrome, Gardner syndrome, and cleft lip and palate

2. Although the exact cause of hyperdontia has not yet been discovered, some studies have shown that it might be a result of over activity of dental lamina during the phase of tooth development in infancy. 
3. It could also possibly be due to genetic or environmental factors. 

What problems does it pose and how can hyperdontia be corrected?
1. The existence of extra teeth often causes problems in speaking.
2. It may also cause deformation in the mouth region, and impediments in a lot of other functional activities like eating. 
3. In rare cases, the extra tooth/teeth may be agents of tumors or cysts
4. Therefore, treatment must be swiftly undertaken so as to remove the extra teeth and prevent rise of further teeth in the same spot. 
5. Sometimes, hyperdontia also leads to overcrowding and misshapen rows of teeth; this can also be corrected with extensive procedures.
