I think your Canal inside your root has again infected. It's better to immediately visit to a dental clinic and consult with the dentist. A dental x-ray can help for underlying cause for your problem.

Please come to the point how to diagnose what are the tests I can go through. I am not aware the reason for my bad breath for the last 15 years Have spoken to end number of doctors. But no one is giving any precise answer. I repeat, Please tell me what are the test I can do to diagnose the real issue Please help.

Dentist, Bangalore
Bad breath is due to accumalation of volatile sulfur compounds. These are produced by anerobic bacteria. VSC- methyl mercaptan and hydrogen sulfide intake of high protein foods or certain foods may increase or worsen it. If your toungue has a white coating. It is the simplest indicator of bad breath. Usually to detect these there is a device called hallimeter. But I am have never heard of any indian dentist using this device as halimeter is not required to investigate and is simply waste of money. You can contact an oral pathologist and if really interested to get it actually detected. Ask them to collect your plaque samples and conduct a BANA test. (benzoyl arginine naphthalamide) to detect anerobic bacteria presence. This is usually not done in regular practices. As halitosis or bad breatb is easily detected.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Advise get an X-Ray done and connect with the report for further naturopathic traction. Sometimes joint pain is seen, especially at the temperomandibular joint and can be alleviated with natural medicines suitably. For the time being, suggest avoid biting any kind of hard food stuff including chocolates, nuts, meat etc all as it is likely to aggravate the pain/ condition. A little bit of cold application, externally, can help lessen swelling, if any. Stay well hydrated, and keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

Rct is a good procedure to treat pain. You have to put crown/cap in the rc treated tooth. Otherwise it will get weaken.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

I have been suffering with geographic tongue for the past two years. I consulted many doctors but still I am facing this problem.

For the treatement counter pain relievers anti-inflammatories mouth rinses with anesthetic corticosteroids applied directly on the tongue zinc supplements try limiting these substances or avoid them altogether: tobacco hot, spicy, or acidic foods or dried, salty nuts toothpaste with additives, whitening agents, or heavy flavoring (toothpaste for sensitive teeth is a better choice)

Please encourage your mother to consume cool (not cold) sweetish buttermilk and alkaline foods like Kohala (ash gourde), cucumber, cold milk. She should not eat spicy or chilie and oil rich foods. She can take immunity enhancing tonics like Reimmugen Colostrum capsules that will help her ulcers to heal and also help deal with allergy discomforts. Regards.

These are just apthous ulcers so no need to worry. But yes I know that they are quite painful. Use kenakort ointment thrice a day and mucopain gel for symptomatic relief during meals. Usually they take 2 weeks to regress. For 1 week they aggravate and then they regress. You must have been in some kind of stress, be it emotional or physical or even mental. Even exam stress can lead to these painful ulcer. So try to take life easy. In food you should avoid all kind of hot and spicy food and have plenty of water.

Hi it would really help us if you could send some pictures of your teeth. Modern day dentistry allows you to fill small gaps between teeth by procedure called dental bonding. If you can send some pictures then we are in better position to comment.

The pain described could also be due to food impaction which is a very common finding if the crown fabricated has not taken the proper contact points and embrasures. Please provide photographs and radiographs so that a suitable diagnosis and treatment plan can be advised.

Irregular brushing technique with worn out tooth brush will certainly cause the gums to bleed. Bleeding is also due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. Artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a 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.

Hi lybrate-user. Please do not be afraid of that, you consult a nearby dentist get cleaned n polished your teeth, n follow the proper brushing technique using a soft brush, brush twicely, use mouth wash and have warm saline gargle frequently, take plenty of water and do gum massage. And after all you can do a periodontal surgery if needed.

First of all go for cleaning of your teeth and then go for vantej toothpaste, apply it on your tooth surface and keep it for 3 to 5 min and then brush your teeth with the same vantej toothpaste twice daily for 15 days.

Cost of the treatment will vary according to your choice that is metallic braces, ceramic braces or Invisalign. Cost also depends on severity of your problem, your place of living and skill/ expertise of the operator. Your age is fine for the treatment. Regarding extraction, if there is less space between your teeth than required to move your teeth into desired position after treatment, extraction is done (1 to 4 teeth) to create space. This space is occupied by tooth movement during the procedure. If you have any other doubt you can contact us personally. Hope it will help you. THANK YOU.

I got black patches on my teeth. Is it safe to bleach them with hydrogen peroxide.

Ayurveda Clinic

I got black patches on my teeth. Is it safe to bleach them with hydrogen peroxide.
NO! Please do not use Peroxide to whiten you teeth. Teeth Bleaching agents state they have hydrogen peroxide in them but it is somewhat of a different delivery system. Peroxide will clean you mouth but not whiten you teeth. Also, please do not use Bleach to do this either. I have seen it before and it is very dangerous as you could imagine.
