Sir, give me reason of hypersalivation and its remedy, kuch din mere mouth me khub sara saliva aya raha hai. Now may ...
Hypersalivation is not a disease but usually a symptom of another underlying condition. These other factors can range from easily treated and common causes to rare diseases. Saliva is a clear liquid produced by the salivary glands in the mouth. It moistens food and aids swallowing. It also contains enzymes that help with digestion. Saliva can help to heal wounds and remove germs from the mouth, as well as prevent dryness and act as a barrier against irritants and toxins. On average, a healthy person produces between 0.75 and 1.5 liters of saliva each day. Saliva production peaks when a person is eating and is at its lowest during sleep. Too much saliva can cause problems with talking and eating, along with chapped lips and skin infections. Hypersalivation and drooling can also cause social anxiety and diminished self-esteem. Hypersalivation can be the result of: excessive saliva production an inability to effectively swallow or clear saliva from the mouth difficulty keeping the mouth closed Causes of excessive saliva production, leading to hypersalivation, include: morning sickness or nausea during pregnancy sinus, throat, or peritonsillar infections poisonous spider bites, reptile venom, and poisonous mushrooms false teeth ulcers, inflammation, or pain in the mouth poor oral hygiene severe infections such as rabies or tuberculosis severe or sudden pain regurgitation of saliva during heartburn jaw fractures or dislocation Difficulty swallowing or clearing saliva from the mouth can be caused by or associated with some underlying conditions, including Down syndrome, autism, ALS, stroke, and Parkinson's disease. If a person also has a sensory dysfunction, they may not always realize that they are drooling. Causes of an inability to keep the mouth closed, which can result in drooling, include poor neuromuscular control of the muscles around the mouth. Cerebral palsy is an example of such a condition. Difficulty keeping saliva in the mouth can also be due to: poor head and lip control a constantly open mouth impaired tactile sensation an enlarged tongue or poor tongue mobility poor teeth alignment nasal blockage Hypersalivation can also result from non-medical conditions, such as seeing, smelling, or tasting food, or even just thinking about food. It can also be caused by chewing gum or by feelings of excitement and anxiety. Symptoms Symptoms of hypersalivation include drooling, spitting, and excessive swallowing. Other related symptoms include: chapped lips softening and damage to the skin around the mouth infection of the skin around the mouth bad breath dehydration speech disturbance pneumonia poor sense of taste Hypersalivation and drooling may also cause psychological complications and social anxiety, as well impact their ability to eat or speak. People who experience hypersalivation are more likely to inhale saliva, food, or fluids into their lungs, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia. This may happen when the gagging and coughing reflexes are impaired. Diagnosis The aim of diagnosing hypersalivation is to pinpoint the underlying cause and then to recommend the best available treatment for each affected person. A diagnosis is important, as some of the potential causes of hypersalivation have serious complications. To diagnose hypersalivation, a doctor may include an examination of the following: the mouth, teeth, and surrounding skin tongue control, swallowing ability, and jaw stability tonsils and nasal airways alertness and emotional state hydration, hunger, and head posture A doctor will usually consider it necessary to assess other criteria, including: existing medical conditions and ongoing medication how and when hypersalivation occurs the amount of extra saliva produced whether or not the problem is constant or intermittent any adverse effects on daily life Once the cause of hypersalivation is established, a doctor may take the following factors into account when recommending a treatment: severity and complications age and mental status whether hypersalivation is chronic or temporary associated neurological conditions the possibility of improvement Treatment and management Dealing with hypersalivation is about treating the underlying condition that is causing it, as well as managing the immediate effects of excess saliva in the mouth. Depending on the cause, the treatment can include certain types of therapies, medications, and home remedies. In extreme cases, surgery may be considered. Therapy: This can include behavioral modification and speech therapy. People experiencing hypersalivation may benefit from help with posture and head control. They can also learn techniques for lip closure, better tongue control, and swallowing. Medication: The aim of medication for hypersalivation is to reduce salvia production. Anticholinergic medication may be used, although it has a range of side effects, including drowsiness, restlessness, irritability, urinary retention, constipation, and flushing. Treatment can also include a beta-blocker or botulinum toxin (Botox). Home remedies: Drinking plenty of water can reduce saliva production. Tooth-brushing and rinsing with mouthwash can also temporarily dry out the mouth. The successful management of hypersalivation and the resulting drooling can improve a person's confidence and self-esteem. Some causes of hypersalivation may clear up over time without treatment. Such causes include pregnancy, anxiety, and minor injuries. Other causes can pose more serious medical challenges. This category includes neurological causes and nerve disorders. If chronic conditions are the cause, treatment may include lifelong management of a person's hypersalivation.

Filling your stomach full before the RCT is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

Hello Doctor i have teeth problem as usual a little bleeding in the morning while brushing the teeth and a little awkward smell as well what should i do? please give me the solutions

Hi, The most common cause of bleeding gums and bad breath is gum disease caused by accumulation of tartar deposits on the teeth which harbour bacteria. The solution would be to see your dentist and, probably get a professional cleaning done.

Bleeding gum. Weak teeth signs of pyorrhea. Happening from few months. Need help.
Hello, bleeding from gums could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

My one tooth is bent inwards. I don't want to use braces as someone told me that two other tooths from the corners will be removed for that. I heard of something called hard push up which is done manually by doctor and is time taking. Please suggest me on that.

After your kid turns one, brush his teeth twice a day with a soft toothbrush. By age 4, make him/her brush their teeth themselves. Do not let them consume sugar-laden candies.

Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 48 hours. If possible chew on the opposite side of your extraction site. Drink lots of liquids and eat soft,nutritious foods. Strictly avoid hard, hot food & drinks for first 24 hours. Avoid spicy food. Eat food like dalia, khichadi.

My akkal teeth are growing. My age is 29 years. What should I do please help. My mouth is full of pain.
An impacted tooth is a tooth that is positioned against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue so that it is unlikely to fully erupt through the gums to reach its normal position in the mouth. Wisdom teeth (third molars) the wisdom teeth or third molars are the last to come through, right at the back. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Although sometimes they appear many years later. Nowadays people often have jaws that are too small for all 32 teeth - 28 is often the most we have room for.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Definately. You should start brushing your baby's teeth. Do it without toothpaste until she learns to spitt. There are lot many types of soft bristle tooth brushes available in the market. Also make this habit of cleaning the tongue also.
