•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •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. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

My wisdom tooth is growing out and causing a lot of pain and swelling to my cheek what can I use to stop the pain?

Its better to get it removed as swelling is due to infection caused by the tooth and you will not prefer to have infected tooth in your mouth.

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.

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.

I am suffering from dental pain since last 2 days. Can you suggest me what should be done?

I am suffering from dental pain since last 2 days. Can you suggest me what should be done?
Dear lybrate-user, the toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. Send images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

teeth Extractions have nothing to do with eye problems and they are completely safe if done by a dentist. but you can go for a root canal treatment for these teeth. visit a dentist for the correct diagnosis. if these teeth can be saved then go for rct.

Hi Gum bleeding is the indication of gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque or tarter deposition. Scaling is the option to get rid of bleeding. You can use crest toothpaste to control plaque deposition. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Take Celin tabs once daily for 15 days.

May be your gums got inflamed due to plaque, calculus or any injury. If plaque or calculus is there you need to go for scaling and need to improve your oral prophylaxis. Consult dentist.
