Hi, teeth have a protective layer called enamel with age the enamel wears off and become thin which causes to become teeth sensitive to cold and hot. You need to get a professional check up done to know the exact cause and solution of your problem.

My b 12 level is 220 and tongue blister/ wound problem still exist. How to improve b 12 level by food and tab.

My b 12 level is 220 and tongue blister/ wound problem still exist. How to improve b 12 level by food and tab.
Hi, your b 12 levels are slightly on the lower side of normal. This is common in strictly vegetarian people. You should not worry, increase the intake of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Meet your physician and start vitamin b12 tablets with his opinion. The blister / wound has nothing to do with vitamin b12 levels as tongue manifestations of vitamin deficiency are different. For tongue problem, visit an oral medicine specialist for its treatment. Regards.

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

Kindly get cleaning and polishing done for your teeth. The yellow that you complain will go away with this procedure and along with that dentist would advice you a mouthwash. So accordingly work would be done.

My teeth or very pain at night time, cavity is no there how to improve my teeth cavity.
The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

I had wisdom toothache and swelling 1 week back. When consulted dentist she told me to go for wisdom tooth extraction as according to her it is decayed. I am afraid to go for the same as I have heard that it will affect health of my vision. Is wisdom tooth extraction safe to go for. Also with proper course of antibiotics and pain killers the pain and swelling has subsided. Kindly suggest what is best to go for.

If the wisdom tooth is decayed, it is best to get it extracted. Tooth extraction has not effect on vision. It is a very safe procedure. Even if the pain and swelling has subsided, there is a chance it will come back.

My father is a tobacco addict. His gums became dilute along with ulcers in his mouth two days ago. He had fever and having constipation. He said that he stops chewing tobacco few days ago and then these problems occurs because of change. Is this possible. I think that he is hiding something serious from us. Maybe ulcers came first and then he leaves tobacco. How can we know that it is not a serious problem like mouth cancer. Suggest me some test or any other mean and where can we have these test.

Prevention is better than cure mouth ulcers, gum problem, discolouration of teeth with infection occurs by tobacco. Stoping it will improve the mouth condition. Just bear the problem for few days, take preventive measures and you will see bright prospect.

Mere teeth bhahut sensitive h mujhe khata nhi khaya jata please help me what I do ?
Your teeth must be sensitive because your gums must have receded. Secondly other cause could be that you must be having a habit of clenching the teeth. If so please kindly refer dentist. They will prescribe you desensitising mouth wash and desensitising tooth paste.

Take multivitamin containing lycopene cap od for 2 weeks along with consume cold things. For intraoral ulcers use topical dologel-ct /heal plus mix it with kenacort gel and apply 3-4 times wherever you feel burning. Use hexidine mouthwash 10-15ml dilute it with half glass of water. Consult a dentist for proper investigation.

Good morning lybrate-user thanks for the query all toothpaste are same, it does not matter which toothpaste you are using what matters is how you brush your teeth. Brushing technique is more important than type of paste. To learn the brushing technique visit your dentist

I had root canal be for three years back and had cap on my molar jaw but from last 3 or 4 month there is a ulcer on the.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I have four cavities in my lower and upper teeth. Should I do root canal for it?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
I have four cavities in my lower and upper teeth. Should I do root canal for it?
We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. 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.
