Hi along with folic acid and vitamins you should be given some antibiotic like metrogyl 200 bds. You can also take some anti inflammatory tablets that will reduce pain and swelling. Take plenty of curds green vegetable and liquids. Avoid roti in any form. Take soft diet. Avoid constipation. You can take homoeopathic medicines like borex 30 tds for 5 days. If it is due to old tooth brush or change of tooth paste change it. Keep us informed!

There are many reasons for bad breath besides oral hygiene. Which have to be ruled out. Other commin reasons may be. - dry mouth ie decreased flow of saliva. As saliva removes odor causing particles besides helping in digestion. Dry mouth can be due to some use of medication, breathing through mouth or salivary gland problems. Etc - use of tobacco products - medical disorders. Eg. Chronic sinusitis, respiratory tract infections, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, lactose intolerance etc. Natural bad breath remedies include chewing on mint or parsley. Drinking lots of water in case of dry mouth which you are already practicing. Chewing on sugarless gum or sucking on sugarfree candy to stimulate production of saliva. So my advice is to first rule out the cause for bad breath and go for treatment accordingly.

You need to consult a dentist for your scaling. And if the odor is not because of oral hygiene problems than a systemic cause needs to be found out.

Blood while brushing is indication of gingivitis. You need to get a thorough cleanup of your teeth with scaling. Also use a soft bristle toothbrush and don't exert too much pressure while brushing. Improve your brushing technique. Take a balanced diet.

Please elaborate on exactly what is your tooth problem in general if you want. Medium bristle toothbrush with a fluoridated pastes like colgate total or pepsodent germicheck is recommended. Brushing twice is very important.

Preventing Gum Disease

Ask Free Question
Gum diseases affect the soft tissue and the bones surrounding the teeth. The bacteria causes irritation in the gums leading to infection and bleeding, while brushing your teeth. It is characterized by inflammation of the gums caused by the bacteria present in plaque (a colorless and sticky film on the teeth). Also, if many people in the family have suffered from gum disorders, then your chances of getting gum diseases are relatively higher.

Symptoms of gum disease:

Bleeding gums
Continuous bad breath
Change in the normal placement of teeth
Over sensitive gums

How to prevent gum disease from happening?

Regular dental checkups are also recommended to identify any gum problems early and also prevent them.
Modifications in lifestyle such as limiting smoking, eating a diet rich in antioxidants and reducing stress can also help in preventing gum diseases.
Gum diseases can be prevented by following proper dental hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing on a regular basis are the best methods of preventing gum diseases.
Severe cases of gum diseases may require surgery but mild cases can disappear by following a proper dental hygiene.

As per your complaints and symptoms you may have osmf (oral submucous fibrosis). You need thorough examination and some clinical and pathological examination along with screening and biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Stop taking tobacco for always. Avoid spicy hot and souf food. You may need sum steoid injections and surgery. So kindly consult a maxilllofacial surgeon.

My gums keep on bleeding frequently although I brush twice a day and keep it clean. I use colgate sensitive toothpaste. Can it be related to my menstruation as it started after I started taking pain-killer pills (meftal-spas). Is it poisonous to my body in any way? can you please recommend some proper remedy?

Brush your teeth properly before going to bed everyday. After anything you eat, clean wash mouth cavity with plain water well. No food particle should be stuck in mouth. If you this daily, you won't get the complaint.

This is due to tobacco chewing. Quit tobacco chewing. Avoid spicy oily food. Take lots of water n fibrous food. Chew efcoril chewable tabs 3-4 times daily. This'll bring dwn burning sensation.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

If the permanent teeth is out due to trauma, then preserve it under your tongue or, milk or tender coconut water & rush to a dentist. It is possible to fix the tooth in the socket. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root anal treatment & permanent fixation of the involved tooth for a month. 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.

Nothing to worry about. At the age of 6 years don't forget to get an xray done. It will confirm the eruption of the permanent teeth.
