Ulcers are normally due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes dry mouth, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, increase body heat, consumption of oilly n spicy food. So start taking some vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Avoid oilly n spicy food completely. Eat more balanced and healthy diet.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash or take c. Amox 500mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Metrogyl 400mg 1-1-1, thrice daily, t. Imol 1-1-1, thrice daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, allergy), c. Becosules 1-0-0 once daily all for 3 days only. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

We don't know the size of the holes in your teeth. So there can be two options. You can get it filled with composite cement. Or you can go for root canal treatment. You dentist is the best judge.

Hello, scaling is the most common and safest procedure carried out in all dental clinics. Visit a dentist and get a good scaling and polishing done. The dentist will show you proper brushing technique. If you maintain properly, cavity formation can be reduced. Brush twice a day, rinse after every meal and floss regularly. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouthwash twice daily for 15 days. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

I have yellow teeth. According to the dentist I visited recently ,bleaching is the only option I am left with. I have done scaling 2-3 times. They appear a bit whiter after scaling and then after some days they again get yellow. What do you suggest? Are there any side effects of the same?

Bleaching is a process to whiten your teeth. Bleaching can be done in the clinic or in house bleaching kit is also available. Bleaching has no serious side effects. Only that you have to stop smoking (if you do) and limit the intake of stain causing foods like tea or coffee, otherwise the whiteness begin to fade and stains reappear. And in some cases the teeth become sensitive after the procedure. In that case a desensitising tooth paste is used.

My son is 13 yrs. Two days back his one tooth has started growing inside the upper jaw behind canine. Does he need any treatment?

BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Take a xray visit the dentist, at times permanent teeth start erupting before the milk tooth shed, therefore if the milk tooth needs to be removed then the dentist will remove, if not if it is small and get off on its own then no need to remove.

Looking for a dental floss for everyday use? Here you go! The Nylon (or multifilament) floss made up of many strands of nylon and available in various flavours works excellently in removing plaque and debris from the mouth if used properly because it has a tendency of getting torn between teeth with tight contact points.

Root canal teeth are also more brittle, and generally rct-treated teeth need a crown after a root canal so the tooth will not break.

Muh me chhale ko mouth ulcers kehte hai. Aur iske hone ki bahut sari alag alag wajah ho sakti hai jaise ki smoking, sharp cusp, stressfull life style, spicy food consumption etc. Aacha yeh hoga ki aap dentist ko dikha lijiye wo aapko ek aacha solution de denge tab tak aap warm saline gargles kar sakte hai.
