Kindly suggest...
Dear Lybrate user, bleeding from gums may be due to swollen gums because of plaque build up. Bad odour may be due to a decaying tooth or unclean tongue. Visit your local dentist for a check up. Get a professional cleaning/scaling done. Drink plenty of water and rinse your mouth thrice daily with warm salty water. Your dentist may also recommend a mouthwash for use after scaling.

सच में दांत का कीड़ा वीड़ा कुछ होता नहीं है, यह केवल दांत की सड़न है जिसे पता नहीं कितने समय से लोगों ने कीड़े की संज्ञा दे दी और बस परंपरा के चलते वही नाम चल निकला और इस गलत नाम को और भी पुख्ता किया उन सड़क-छाप दांत का इलाज करने वालों ने जो परेशान मरीज़ को रूमाल में कुछ कीड़ा सा निकाल कर दिखा देते हैं। दरअसल बात यह है कि दांतों में खाना फंसने की वजह से उन पर जब मुंह में मौजूद लाखों-करोड़ों जीवाणु (bacteria) टूट पड़ते हैं तो एसिड (अमल) पैदा होता है जो दांतों को साड़ देता है....एक बार शूरू हो जाने पर यह एक सतत प्रक्रिया है....यह फिर धीरे धीरे दांतों में छेद पैदा कर देती है, सड़न तो होती ही है, जिस से कालापन रहता ही है, इसलिए इसे बुलाया जाने लगा दांत का कीड़ा।

Braces for children if required should be done at an early stage as recommended by the Orthodontist. Done in the growing stage it can be more permanent and faster.

Tooth Decay - 6 Ways Ayurveda Can Help!

Tooth Decay - 6 Ways Ayurveda Can Help!

The most common problem affecting the mouth is caries which happens as a result of bacteria acting on the food deposits on the teeth, which produces acid that attacks the tooth structure. The result is loss of tooth structure and formation of pits and cavities which allows more food deposits and causes more decay.

Decay development depends on a number of factors including heredity, tooth structure, oral hygiene habits, food habits, etc. There are certain simple things that can be done at home which can delay the onset of the decay and also reduce its progression and severity.

If that sounds interesting, read on to know more.

  1. Clove and sesame oil: Clove oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibacterial properties. A few drops of clove oil mixed with half teaspoon of sesame oil can be dabbed on the affected tooth with a cotton ball. This can be repeated every night, both for relief as well as for preventing further decay spread. Alternately, a whole clove can be chewed for some time and then placed under the tongue for continued relief.
  2. Salt: Known for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, use a rinse made with salt and warm water and swish around the affected tooth at least 3 times a day. Alternately, make a paste of salt and lemon juice and apply on the affected tooth.
  3. Garlic: A paste with about 4 cloves of garlic and rock salt applied on the affected tooth provides great relief. Raw garlic can be eaten regularly for multiple benefits, including prevention from tooth decay. Rubbing raw garlic on the affected tooth also provides temporary relief from pain.
  4. Neem: Still used as a toothbrush by many rural people, chewing on a tender neem bark yields powerful oils and compounds that help keep the teeth against bacterial attack. The high fiber content is also effective against reducing plaque formation.
  5. Swishing with oils: Sesame, coconut or sunflower oil can be used for this purpose. On an empty stomach in the morning, use a tablespoon of one of these oils to swish for about 10 minutes, take care not to swallow it. This should be done before brushing the teeth. This helps reduce gum disease, bad breath and reduce cavities.
  6. Mustard oil: Two teaspoons each of mustard oil and rock salt can be mixed and applied to the tooth regularly for relief from dental decay pain.

The next time you have a tooth ache, it is not always necessary to rush to the dentist. Try these home remedies to get some relief, which will give you time to go to the dentist.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
