Some people have generally sensitive layer kf the mouth. In such cases apple pineapple or oranges tend to create roughness which pains. Avoid taking these fruits for sometime and evaluate yourself for the possibility of any vitamin deficiency. Many vitamin b/c deficiencies create sensitive inner lining of the body.

Dear User, the leading cause of mouth ulcers today is anxiety, try to reduce your stress, however it may also occur from vit deficiency and might become a tendency to mouth ulcer. For it Homoeopathic constitutional treatment is very much beneficial, have Merc sol 30/ 5 drops twice daily for 3 days only. You will see some results but these is not permanent, to eradicate this tendency their needs further speculations.

Hello Lybrate-user, sensitivity is sharp, shooting type of sensation in teeth on contact of extremely cold or hot food which usually lasts for a few seconds and disappears completely after that and re-occurs again on such stimulus. Treatment plan for sensitive teeth goes as follows: 1. You can use any commercially available desensitizing toothpastes such as colgate sensitive /sensodyne /Sensodent KF / Sensoform R/ Shy NM/ Vantej /Senquel F /Shy XT /Pepsodent pro sensitive (many more are available in market) as first line of treatment. If it reduces your sensitivity substantially you can continue brushing with toothpaste in long run to avoid further sensitivity. 2. If you don't get any relief from desensitizing toothpastes it indicates a more severe problem which will need further treatment like layering/coating the damaged tooth surface OR filling of the tooth if there is big cavity OR root canal treatment in extreme cases. Getting proper treatment leads to permanent relief in sensitivity problem. And you can eat and drink cold food items without getting jerks while eating or drinking. Regards

I have been suffering from mouth ulcers since 5 year so let me know about right way to remove ulcers from root.

I have been suffering from mouth ulcers since 5 year so let me know about right way to remove ulcers from root.
Mouth ulcers are mostly due to increased stress, reduced sleep, diet nutrition deficiency, viral infection, fever and hormonal disturbances. As you have long term problem of recurring ulceration you should look into your diet and the stress factor. Eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables to increase your fibre intake, try meditation to reduce the stress level. Also, take a over the counter multi-vitamin preparation daily. A more detailed regimen of medication can be suggested by your dentist after a detailed history and clinical examination.

My sister has yellow teeth, even after good dental hygiene. What might be the cause?
Teeth yellowing might be reflecting some problems with the enamel of teeth or it can be due to improper brushing. The former will need cosmetic intervention from any cosmetic dentist. The latter can be taken care of by professional cleaning.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Advise c. Amox 500mg 1-1-1, thrice, t. Metrogyl 400mg 1-1-1, thrice, t. Imol 1-1-1, thrice (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, and allergy), and c. Becosules 1-0-0 once, all for 3 days only. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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 Bharat, No, there is no natural way to cure a ranula. Ranula is a type of mucocele present on the floor of the mouth. It is present due to the collection of mucin from ruptured salivary gland caused by local trauma. Its best treatment is surgical removal.

Few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleanig once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums.

The tooth that is erupting now is your wisdom tooth. Kindly get an x-ray done of that tooth and if required get it removed. Till then do warm saline rinses and brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

Get your teeth cleaned professionally by scaling and polishing. If you are not satisfied with the results go for bleaching of teeth. maintain oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and use mouthwash regularly.

Either the bigger teeth can be reshaped to a smaller one oe the smaller tooth can be build-up into a bigger one.Both requires artificial capping over your natural tooth.No need of braces.
