Thanks for your query. The soreness over the gums and your mouth can be because of the aphthous stomatitis or lichen planus. Consult an oral physician and get it evaluated. Once the diagnosis is confirmed we can treat accordingly with topical anesthetics like lignocaine and topical steroids like triamcinolone acetoide. Do saline gargling. I hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries reply me back. Take care.

Involuntary Oral Habits That Are Eating Away Your Smile.

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Involuntary Oral Habits That Are Eating Away Your Smile.

Clenching or night grinding.

If you have ever experienced a strong emotion of either anger or resolve you may realise our body tenses up and our teeth clench. If this is not a frequent occurrence the damage maybe minimal but as sports people or someone with a bad temper you may actually end up wearing down your teeth considerably. Now a large part of this habit is semi voluntary you can remind yourself to control it but a few people suffer from an entirely involuntary condition called night grinding or bruxism.

Unfortunately here you have no awareness of doing the grinding except maybe waking up with a sore jaw or a headache but the person sleeping beside you can even hear you gnashing your teeth. Needless to say the damage this is silent destroyer is causing is significant and rapid. The best solution if diagnosed with this habit is to start wearing a night guard which is a thin plastic appliance that fits snugly on your teeth similar to a sports guard so that it protects your teeth and wears down before your teeth do. Also the jaw separation it creates puts your muscles at ease and they don't get activated or clench anymore.

Mouth breathing.

Many people are unaware of this habit entirely. A very common condition mouth breathing occurs more so when you're sleeping and tend to breathe more through your mouth than your nose.

This condition can be a result of the way your nasal passages and throat are shaped. It commonly occurs in people with a deviated nasal septum as well. The main sign to know if you're mouth breathing or not is if you wake up with an extremely dry mouth, at times bad breathe and tend to have red irritated gums that bleed often on brushing.

Mouth breathing also predisposes you to snoring so if you haven't started yet if you're a mouth breather chances are you will start snoring as well.

It usually can be corrected surgically and if not severe snoring particularly can be corrected by oral appliances or oxygen machines which supplement the air reaching your lungs.

Tongue thrusting.

This habit develops at childhood or birth and is also attributed to the tongue shape and the structure of the palate and throat. A person having this habit tends to push the teeth out while swallowing as a result they present with spaced out teeth and a large tongue.

To prevent the need for braces catching this habit early on and wearing an appliance to control it would be best. If spaces have already increased then best form of closing the gaps would be either with braces or by cosmetic fillings.

Cheek biting.

A surprisingly unnoticeable habit people tend to chew their inner cheek or parts of their lip when under stress or deep thought. While this habit can seem harmless it can create a long term wound in the mouth which can either balloon up with fluids or be subject to infection. Chronic injuries or wounds should never be left unnoticed and habits like these should be discontinued to avoid discomfort and the eventual need for treatment.

Exposure to alternating extremes of temperature.

Another very ignorant but seemingly harmless habit is to eat a hot meal and down it with a glass of ice cold water or have a hot drink and second it with ice cream. While the effects of this habit may only show up in the long term what it does is create an impact on the enamel and slowly cause the teeth to become sensitive.

While our teeth are extremely hardy and don't breakdown until exposed to hundreds of millions of such daily stimuli, the best solution is to keep an intermittent time gap between the extremes of temperature in order not to shock the nerves that rest within your teeth to become hypersensitive.

At some extent excess saliva is good for oral health but upto some limits.Excess saliva which is also called drooling mouth or sialorrhea may be treated with certain drugs prescribed by a doctor.

My mother teeth was in very pain. what should she do?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist,
My mother teeth was in very pain. what should she do?
Pain in tooth can be because of various reasons. If a cavity is there with no pulp involvement than you can go for simple filling but if the pulp is involved you will have to go for rct. If the pain is due to hypersensitivity then you can use a desensitizing paste commonly available in the market. For the time being take tab. Ketorol dt whenever you have pain for some relief 2 tablets at the start followed by 1 tab in the evening for not more than 5 days. Also check if she is allergic to this medication. In that case give her a analgesic she commonly takes for pain. And consult a nearby dentist before the pain aggravates.

Dear, One thing you have to accept is that all things cant be as normal as they were before therapy. Its not abnormal means its fine as per your oral health status. I advice you to trust your Dr. And its never of shame to go for second opinion. Even we Drs some times refer cases for better diagnosis of patient.Good Luck

Hello lybrate-user, the fact that you have got replacement done at a very age is possibly affecting the excess growth of tissue. The time at which replacement is done coincides with the hormonal fluctuations which adversely affects the gums health. Additionally, the use of metal in duplicate teeth can also induce formation of extra tissue. The tissue also affects the esthetics and gum health. I advise you to go for a thorough clinical check up, assess the extent of infection and determine the best possible treatment to prevent repeated discomfort.
