I have a problem of ulcer  in my mouth. I take many tablets but they occurs again after some time.Please help me.
There are various causes for mouth ulcers: *diet *deficiency *irritating fillings *stress/ allegries *late night *wisdom tooth *broken teeth etc. You need to find out the exact cause. It could be one of the above. You need to see your nearest dentist at your earliest. Till then you can apply this gel called rexidin m forte on the affected area twice a day.

My upper jaw one premolar tooth got vertically fractured due to an accidental bite on a chicken bone, one month back. That vertical fracture had left my tooth with one half mobile and the other half fixed. I visited dentist and removed the mobile part alone. The other half is still there. While removing the mobile part, the root of the mobile part also came, leaving unable to do root canal. My Dentist suggested me to do implant. Till this day I haven't done implant. Is there any problem in keeping the fixed part permanently and not doing implant? I have no problem till now keeping it, as it is not causing any pain or disturbance.

Dental implants are mainly used to replace a single missing tooth, which, in most cases, is a premolar or a molar tooth. Tooth decay, failed root canal treatment and cracking are some of the reasons that a tooth may be extracted. Front teeth, or incisors, are lost less frequently than molars. The primary molars are replaced by permanent premolars (also called bicuspids) and the permanent molars come in behind the primary teeth. Consult a dentist for more information. Take care.

Common Mistakes People Do In Dental Care

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Common Mistakes People Do In Dental Care

"Common mistakes People Do in Dental Care "

1. Regular Check-ups: Check-up is utmost important part of dental treatment , even if you do not find any usual finding in your mouth you have to  go for  annual check -ups to your Dentist.It is  mandatory to take preventive measure before hand .So ,from next time do not wait for caries pain,sensitivity develop in  your teeth ,just visit to your dentist for a general check up.

2. Follow ups: Follow up is always mandatory in between and after your treatment .Whatever is the treatment ,it is necessary to visit to a doctor if he/she mention that you have to come for follow up.Specialy after your surgery, extraction(teeth removal),Root canal etc .You find everything is done ,treatment is over and didn’t find time to visit again to your dentist ,but you have to understand this that any healing will take time and it is a normal biological process. So from next time ,don’t miss appointments and a  follow up after your treatment too.

3. Self Medication: Strict No-No .I have seen lot of people that they take medicine on their own ,without seeing a dentist /physician .See, every drug has side effects ,if you are taking for a longer time without asking to your doctor .Even if you had old prescription of a doctor ,don’t take any medicine without consulting to your Dentist/Physician. So next time ,if you find anything abnormal or find pain ,swelling  in your teeth  ,just consult your Dentist as soon as possible .

 4. Proper Tooth Brushing: For proper dental care, be sure to brush gently two or three times per day each for two to three minutes, using long, horizontally angled strokes. Waiting too long between tooth brushing can cause harmful bacteria and plaque to develop. However, do not brush too often, which can lead to exposure of the roots, or brush too aggressively, which can cause erosion of the tooth enamel.Discard your toothbrush every 3 months or else if its bristles torn out.

Not using the correct tooth brushing technique is another common dental care mistake. According to family dentistry experts, the best technique is the thorough brushing of every tooth. Thoroughly brushing the inner surfaces of the teeth is important, but many skip that step, which can cause issues to show up at the next visit to their family dentistry office.

5. A Dental Floss and a Antiseptic Mouthwash: Also a necessary additionally with the two times brushing. Food accumulates in between teeth and a major  cause too for developing dental caries in between two teeth and also it inflamed your gums  and sometimes lead to pockets and Gingival and Periodontal problems .So for a healthy teeth and gums ,use a dental floss/interdental brushes  to keep  the area clean in between teeth and gargle with the mouthwash once daily before bedtime .

6. Chomping on Tooth Destroyers: A lot of food items and beverages may cause destructions of enamel of your teeth if you are addicted to them .Don’t brush just after having an acidic beverages ,wait for some time than brush your teeth as it will cause more destruction of enamel of your teeth. Everyone has" sweet tooth "so watch your portion of sweets and candies you are taking on daily basis ,it is advisable not to have these items (choclates,chips,candies,soda,cola etc ) on daily basis .So restrict them or if not possible for children ,than give them only in one day in a week (Sundays)

7. Eat vegetables and fruits: Lots of vitamin is needed for your health of your teeth and gums  ,so make sure the green vegetables and fruits are in part of your daily diet.Drink atleast 4-5 litres water per day.

8. Any Unusual Habits like Tobacoo use: Along with all of the other health care issues caused by tobacco, smoking or using other tobacco products can also increase your chances of developing gum disease and experiencing rapid bone loss around your teeth.

9. Tooth trauma: Clenching teeth, chewing ice, or gnawing on pencils can put excess pressure on your teeth and wear away tooth enamel. If you grind your teeth unconsciously – especially at night, your dentist can create a customized mouth guard for you to wear at night. In addition, you should wear a mouth guard when playing contact sports to lessen your risk of broken or cracked teeth if you experience a severe blow to your face, and also when swimming to decrease your teeth’s exposure to chlorine, which can erode and stain tooth enamel.

10. Lack of Vitamin C: Vitamin C is important for the health of your gum tissue and should be      consumed daily. People who consume less that 180 g daily are 25% more likely to develop gum disease.

Lack of calcium – Calcium is known for its ability to strengthen bones. In fact, people who consume at least 800 mg a day are less likely to develop severe gum disease. While calcium can be found in foods like cheese, yogurt, and milk, you should still consider calcium supplements to help strengthen your teeth and bones.

Hello Lybrate user, yes braces are possible at your age too, im surprised why your doctor didn't gave you that option. Gaps can easily be closed by braces. Also there are other options like veneers and laminates for closing the gaps. Hope this helps.

Healing and complete closure of the tooth socket after extraction takes time .usually food gets lodged which if remains for longer duration results in infection and delayed healing. Rinse with salt water after every meal. Visit your dentist if any pain or discomfort.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with T. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. 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. If sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.
