Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

You need an xray to confirm the depth of the caries. If it is initial, then normal filling is required. If it is deep, you may need a rct.

Consumption of fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots and corn, which are difficult to eat and need continous biting should be avoided while taking the orthodontic treatment.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

Hi, There are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

The exact cause of most mouth ulcers is unknown. Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. Certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer or make the problem worse. Sometimes a sharp tooth surface or dental appliance, such as braces or ill-fitting dentures, might also trigger mouth ulcers. The exact cause of most mouth ulcers is unknown. Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers.

Sometimes a sharp tooth surface or dental appliance, such as braces or ill-fitting dentures, might also trigger mouth ulcers. Some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. Avoiding foods that irritate your mouth, including acidic or spicy foods avoiding irritation from gum chewing brushing with a soft-bristled brush after meals and flossing daily, which will keep your mouth free of foods that might trigger a sore. Avoid smoking, tobacco chewing. Seek medical advice about mouth ulcers if you have: unusually large sores sores that are spreading sores that last three weeks or longer intolerable pain despite avoiding trigger foods and taking over-the-counter pain medication difficulty drinking enough fluids a high fever with the appearance of the mouth ulcer. Take becosules for 10days daily once (one cap) apply dologel on the affected area. Gargle with betadine mouth gargle.

Your problem seems vitamin deficiency related. However, my advice would be to get your checkup done by a dentist for proper treatment. Meanwhile you can take following precautions to avoid irritation until proper treatment plan is being carried out - avoid very hot foods and drinks chew slowly use a soft toothbrush and practice regular dental hygiene see your dentist if any dental hardware or teeth may be irritating your mouth decrease stress eat a balanced diet reduce or eliminate food irritants, such as hot, spicy foods take vitamin supplements, especially b vitamins drink plenty of water do not smoke or use tobacco avoid or limit alcohol consumption any further queries related to your treatment are always welcome.

I have gum bleeding problem from last few years. Please suggest me what to do. Thanks in advance.
Dear lybrate-user, you have bleeding gums due to accumulation of food debris, which is a result of inadequate maintenance of oral hygiene. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. You should also clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Hope that helps.

Hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses Doctor will perform few tests (Schirmer test, Pentacam and Fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of LASIK is over 96%. It has no relation with oral cavity.

Braces /Orthodontic treatment would help correct the problem quite effectively In cases of protruding teeth, teeth extraction is inevitable. For invisible braces, she can choose either Lingual braces or Ceramic braces.

There is gap between your upper 2 central incisors (midline gap). What is the cost to fill the gap?
Hello lybrate-user. Gap between upper two central incisors is called midline diastema. The treatment depends on the amount of gap present. Varied treatment strategies include composite restoration buildup, laminates, veneers and full crowns. Similarly, cost will depend upon the type of treatment opted. For that you will have to visit your nearest dentist, who can examine you clinically and suggest you the best treatment plan possible.
