These are simle apthous ulcers probably, you can use becosules (vit c, b-complex) one per day for 30 days. Use a mucopain gel for relief. This should take care. If not consult a dentist.

Thanks for your query. The bleeding gums is because of the gum infection secondary to deposits. The other possible cause can be secondary to bleeding disorders. Nothing to be panic, get your teeth cleaned by a dentist and get a complete blood investigations to rule out other bleeding disorders. I hope I have answered your query Take care.

How to have a healthy teeth.
Limit sugary foods and drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Avoid over-brushing. You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste. Avoid grinding your teeth. Get regular checkups.

A few days ago I noticed this lump under my tongue. It is soft but firm. It doesn't usually hurt but there is some slight pain if I keep touching it with my tongue. I have no idea what it is. Mouth cancer is vey unlikely because I'm 18. I think it might be a swollen sublingual salivary gland but I don't know. Which kind of doctor should I consult .I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.

Hi lybrate-user It certainly cannot be mouth cancer. Either it is an enlarged gland or some other lump due to infection. I would suggest you to go for homoeopathic treatment. It will cure the problem without any side effects and really fast. You can show me at my clinic or take online consultation. Takecare.

What is good treatment for leukoplakia. I have grey patch in inside my cheeks.

It may not necessarily be leukoplakia. There are many other conditions which may mimic leukoplakia. If you r using tobacco in any form, you must immediately stop that. Get a thorough evaluation done. In many conditions, quitting the habit alone will subside the condition. In case it is not leukoplakia, but other condition like leukoedema or linea alba, you dont have to undergo any treatment. Those are harmless conditions.

Kindly get the root canal treatment done of the tooth having pain followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Also get the cavity filled before it becomes deep and painful. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

You should most definitely get the cleaning done and also follow it up on a more regular basis in the future to ensure the problem doesn' t progress. All you need to ensure that the procedure is done with proper ultrasonic powered instruments and in the right manner.

Tooth shade can be lighten by a procedure called as bleaching. In this procedure, a tray containing a gel is placed in the mouth for 15-30 mins. This will lighten the shade of your teeth.

You have gum problem in between your teeth . This can be rectify by scaling and gum massages regularly and if gap is more than use proxa-bruse to clean that area to solve the problem, Now if blank space is due to damage of teeth than have to consult dentist to correct the problem

Go for filling of teeth which is better because at this age your child have both mily as well as permanent teeth. At the age of 9 permanent teeth are at risk.

A number of cosmetic fillers are available nowadays which give very good results. You can easily go for them. However if the gaps are too large veneers might also be used to give aesthetic results.

U need to visit a dentist and get it filled with suitable filling material. Composite filling is the best option. Cavities don't cure by itself.It will progress more and more deeper and at the end u will have only one option ROOT CANAL. So b careful and consult a dentist as soon as possible. Take care Thank you.
