Hi, My question is to a Dentist.

...
There are no side effect as many people tend to say that if you get your teeth removed your eye sight weakens but this are myth. Wisdom teeth normal comes out in same plane as other teeth but they tend to be impacted due the decreased jaw length it's an evolution and lifestyle changes which causes it.

First of all consult dentist to find exact cause of hypersensitivity. If it is due to wear off of enamel than than any sensitivity toothpaste can help or go for varnishing of affected tooth. If it is due to carious lesion than dentist can help better

My tongue cannot taste anything. But I can feel the taste in my mouth but not my tongue. Please help doctors.

My tongue cannot taste anything. But I can feel the taste in my mouth but not my tongue. Please help doctors.
•An altered taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

Hi, Form past 3 days I am suffering from severe tooth pain and consulted dentist to get rid of that unbearable pain. They went for X-Ray and finalised that my two teeth's nerves were damaged because of hard jerk and started Root Canal Treatment. They have made me to pay 3500/- per teeth for RCT and gonna charge 4000/- per tooth for surgery to remove dead tissues. After this they are gonna charge 7000 min for Cap for a single tooth. I am gonna become fool or these charges are fine in chennai location based on my teeth condition. Please advice.

Respected, I always get stucjk mouth ulcers. It really pains alot, due to which I cannot eat food properly an loosing weight. Please provide some useful tips to get rid of these mouth ulcers ?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Hi hearing your complain I think you have certain vitamin deficiencies in your body if you are suffering from repeated ulcers. Ulcers are of many types 1 Stress ulcer: which occurs repeatedly at a span of 7 days and main reason is stress and work load in your life. 2 traumatic ulcer: it occurs due to biting on cheek or toungue accidently during eating these ulcers are not repititive 3 non- healing ulcer: it occurs because of some habits like smoking, chewing tobacco. Looking at your complain I think you are suffering from stress ulcers. Treatment: you can take multivitamin tablets like tab b-folcin plus once a day for 30 days, mucopain gel to be applied on the ulcers twice for 10 days, avoid hot and spicy food for some days. I hope my advice would be helpin you thank you

Try flossing the teeth where you can see bleeding. Also try brushing after meals. Rinse with warm salt water 4-5 times a day too.

My tooth is getting irritated when I eat something cool or hot. Can you please help?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure.We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

After rinsing mouth with mouthwash, do we should rinse with fresh water? if yes after what time? if not then why it can not increase acidity of mouth which will lead to enamel calcium degradation?

The answer is no. You should avoid any type of water or food intake for approx. 30 minutes after using mouthwash. A clinical study evaluated the effect of rinsing with a mouthwash on salivary ph and plaque ph. Following pre treatment ph determinations, subjects rinsed with tap water for 30 seconds and ph was monitored periodically over 30 minutes; after a 10 minute rest period, the procedure was repeated with mouthwash substituted for tap water. Both the plaque ph and the salivary ph remained well above the critical ph of 5.7 (where demineralization occurs during the entire 30 minute period of the study). In addition, it is important to note that mouthwash (ph 4.2) is rapidly neutralized by the buffers in saliva during and after rinsing and any drop in ph will be of extremely short duration, especially when compared to that of carbonated drinks and citrus drinks and fluids which are far more difficult to neutralize. Furthermore, mouthwash is an expectorated product; therefore the contact time of the mouth rinse with the tooth surface is short.

Home remedies for whiter teeth

Some people still prefer the age-old home remedy of baking soda and a toothbrush to gently whiten teeth at home. Also, some foods such as celery, apples, pears, and carrots trigger lots of saliva, which helps wash away food debris on your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum is a tooth-cleansing action and also triggers saliva. A bonus from all that saliva: it neutralizes the acid that causes tooth decay. With teeth, more saliva is better all around.

I spit too much while jogging, & it spit is very salty, like we spit during common cold. I am having this problem from last 2 years. What should I do?

This is due to excessive saline content or mixing of sweat with spit. Reduce salt intake or else increase water intake to strike a positive balance.
