Hello,Might be your wisdom tooth is on its way to erupt in your mouth. Sometimes there is no space for it to come up or it may be impacted in the bone. So you need to see your dentist first. Meanwhile you can take some pain killer medicine like brufen. Take care.

Whenever I eat crispy items like french fries or popcorn or potato chops my roof of the mouth and gums get chaffed and take 2-3 days to heal. Is it due to vitamin deficiency? Please advise.

Sir, I assume you are talking about dental implants. If you are, it is perfectly possible to get fixed teeth at any age, but the decision is made only after a thorough clinical and, as necessary, radiological and laboratory evaluation. As far as the question of usefulness goes, you have to weigh the probable benefits over the potential risks associated with the technique. You need to weigh all the available options for replacement against each other, as well as against no treatment, and then come to a conclusion on the issue. Regards

One more option called" composite fillings" which will cover the gap and it will be same like tooth colour. One more option called" teeth veneering" in which your teeth will be covered by veneer so gap will not be visible. Visit to a dentist for examination and proper treatment plan.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

A dry mouth is not a healthy sign of oral health. It can happen due to taking a lot of medications. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal so as to keep your mouth moist.

Might be cavitation problem. Take her to your local dentist for a check-up. Prior antibiotic intake can suppress the pain but thats not the ideal treatment protocol for that.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

To avoid infection and reduce pain in a first-degree burn on the tongue: rinse the area well with cool water for a few minutes. Remove any dirt or particles that may be on the burn. Wet a clean cloth with cool water and hold it on top of the burn. Suck on ice chips or a popsicle to soothe the pain. Gargle with cool water or salt water. Avoid warm or hot liquids, which could irritate the burn. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Sprinkle a few grains of sugar on the tongue to relieve pain.
