Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. For an ulcer you can apply baking soda over it, or do baking soda in water mouthrinses. This will give you relief from pain and heal the ulcer. If it still persists, you can consult a physician and get your Vitamin B levels checked. If required take supplements for it.

If there is pain, there has to be a cause for it. Look out for any decay or any food lodgement in that area. Whenever there is decay in tooth it initially causes sensitivity, but if your decay is deep and extends till the nerves of the tooth then you may feel pain in the tooth. Treatment of superficial decay is filling and deep decay is root canal treatment. Another cause of pain in tooth can be spacing in between two teeth leading to food lodgement which ingresses into your gums and causes pain. You can get this problem treated by having a deep cleaning of your gums and some necessary measure to close the gap depending on hw much of gap you have. please consult your doc and get the problem diagnosed so that you can obtain suitable treatment. For temporary relief you can take some over the counter pain killers which suit you.

Wisdom Teeth - Know Everything About it!

Wisdom Teeth - Know Everything About it!

Wisdom teeth are known to be the final molars to grow out and they complete the set of permanent teeth. They generally start to erupt during the late teens or in the beginning of twenties. 

In case of some people, there is a possibility that the wisdom teeth may never erupt, while others may even grow four and more wisdom teeth. 

It’s not necessary for you to get your wisdom teeth removed if they are correctly positioned in your mouth and do not cause any pain or dental problems. If they are impacted and/or cause crowding in your teeth, a dentist will recommend that you have them removed. There are two ways wisdom teeth may grow.

  1. Some will grow in like regular teeth.
  2. Some will become impacted.

What if they have grown in and don’t hurt?

If this is the case, the decision is up to you. Wisdom teeth that cause minimal crowding and don’t hurt are fine to keep, but a lot of dentists will recommend that they be removed. Why? They are very susceptible to cavities and are not easily cleansable. If your wisdom teeth have cavities and you cannot clean them due to their location, filling the cavities is unwise because you’ll continue to develop more cavities. The easiest way to avoid this problem is to remove the wisdom teeth altogether.

Some reasons that a dentist would recommend wisdom teeth removal include:

  1. Irritation of the surrounding tissue or the signs of a cavity forming.
  2. Inability to achieve a proper and thorough routine cleaning of food and bacteria.
  3. Inadequate space to accommodate full eruption.
  4. Signs of impaction that could lead to damage of surrounding roots.
  5. Uncomfortable contact with other teeth or gums.
  6. Interference of normal jaw function.

When do wisdom teeth need extraction?

Proper oral care of the teeth will keep them healthy and clean. But there may arise a situation, in which the removal of the wisdom teeth is quite necessary:

  1. In certain cases, the wisdom tooth may erupt at a weird angle, compromising the teeth next to it. This may make it difficult to clean the teeth thoroughly, thus resulting in the onset of bacterial growth and periodontal disease. In this case, the wisdom teeth should be removed as soon as possible. 
  2. While the wisdom teeth grows out, it may happen that there is not enough space for it to grow properly. As a result the adjacent teeth may face pressure due to crowded teeth, leading to headaches, toothaches and jaw pain. It is best that the wisdom teeth is extracted in this situation.
  3. An impacted wisdom tooth, that is, if it has only partially grown out of the tissue, should also be extracted before it can cause serious complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

My daughter 8 year old has bad breath 24/7. Brushes teeth 2 times a day regularly. What is the problem?

Dentist,
My daughter 8 year old has bad breath 24/7. Brushes teeth 2 times a day regularly. What is the problem?
Hi. Brushing only is not important but how to brush is also important. Show to a nearest mds specialist soon to learn the proper brushing technique. It varies in children and adults. One more thing she is in a transition phase with permanent teeth coming and milk teeth going, so may be some gum swelling around new teeth that might be the cause of bad breadth.
