I am having an ulcer in mouth since many days, in the lower vestibule. Please tell me what to do.

I am having an ulcer in mouth since many days, in the lower vestibule. Please tell me what to do.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

He is  a chain smoker. His teeth has become yellowish in colour what to do and what precaution s should he take.
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. 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. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Well exercises can only help you reduce your tongue thrusting habit but when the damage like proclination of teeth has been already done then doing exercises alone will not be of much help but yes there are certain exercises such as the spot salivate squeeze and swallow exercise which can be easily trained and done.

Advantages and Risks of Dental Implants

I’m Dr Prashant Chaudhury. I’m managing Sparkle Dental Clinic. It’s a family dentistry. We provide all the facilities at one place in the Sparkle Dental Clinic. So today we will be talking about dental implants.

Dental implants are used for the replacement of your missing tooth. Basically, a dental implant is a type of titanium screw that is used to place in the jaw bone which helps to integrate with the bone and over it, a crown is placed. So it is the best replacement for your missing tooth without disturbing your surrounding teeth surfaces and your surrounding teeth support is not needed for the implant placement like conventional methods of the breach and the removal dentures. The main concern over the dental implants is the time duration of the treatment. Usually, this is over 3-8 months time duration required for placement of a permanent capping in the implant. For this time duration period, there have been various researches.

Dr eye Dental in Germany has come up with the basal implants so that we can place immediate implants at the time of retraction as well as we can put the permanent tooth capping over the implants within 3 days. Seeing the major advantage of basal implants, it is less time consuming as well as the patients don’t have to go for the extensive surgeries. We can place basal implants in a very low bone conditions. Extensive surgery like bone rafting, sinus lift to increase the bone first and then place the conventional implants doesn’t require, so patients doesn’t has to go for multiple surgeries to place the implant only one surgery placement of implant. Third day the patient will get his own permanent teeth reducing the cost of the treatment reducing the time of the treatment and the implants carry a lifetime warranty for the basal implantology.

So, if you have more concerns of basal implant logy or conventional implants you can join me at lybrate, you can text me, call me or book an appointment for at Sparkle Dental Clinic at lybrate
