Hi, from what you have mentioned above, it seems that you have got diabetes which is usually associated with the above symptoms. It is advisable to consult a diabetologist and get your condition treated. For dry mouth, you need to increase saliva secretion in your mouth. This can be achieved by increasing your fluid intake and by drinking lot of water. Sugar free gums are available in the market which can also help in increasing salivary production.

It can be a problem of tmj. Common symptoms include: •Pain or tenderness in your face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide •Problems when you try to open your mouth wide •Jaws that get" stuck" or" lock" in the open- or closed-mouth position •Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when you open or close your mouth or chew. This may or may not be painful. •A tired feeling in your face •Trouble chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite -- as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly •Swelling on the side of your face You may also have toothaches, headaches, neck aches, dizziness, earaches, hearing problems, upper shoulder pain, and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Home Treatments for TMD Home Treatments for TMD There are things you can do on your own to help relieve TMD symptoms. Your doctor may suggest you try some of these remedies together. •Use moist heat or cold packs. Apply an ice pack to the side of your face and temple area for about 10 minutes. Do a few simple jaw stretches (if your dentist or physical therapist OKs them). When you’re done, hold a warm towel or washcloth to the side of your face for about 5 minutes. Perform this routine a few times each day. •Eat soft foods. Add yogurt, mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, soup, scrambled eggs, fish, cooked fruits and vegetables, beans, and grains to your menu. Cut foods into small pieces so you chew less. Skip hard, crunchy foods (like pretzels and raw carrots), chewy foods (like caramels and taffy), and thick or large bites that require you to open wide. •Avoid extreme jaw movements. Keep yawning and chewing (especially gum or ice) to a minimum and don’t yell, sing, or do anything that forces you to open wide. •Don't rest your chin on your hand. Don’t hold the phone between your shoulder and ear. Practice good posture to reduce neck and facial pain. •Keep your teeth slightly apart as often as you can. This will relieve pressure on your jaw. Put your tongue between your teeth to control clenching or grinding during the day. •Learn relaxation techniques to help loosen up your jaw. Ask your dentist if you need physical therapy or massage. Consider stress reduction therapy as well as biofeedback. TREATMENT PRESCRIBED BY A DENTIST •Medications. Your dentist can prescribe higher doses of NSAIDs if you need them for pain and swelling. He might suggest a muscle relaxer to relax your jaw if you grind or clench your teeth. Or an anti-anxiety medication to relieve stress, which may bring on TMD. In low doses they can also help reduce or control pain. Muscle relaxants, anti-anxiety drugs, and antidepressants are available by prescription only. •A splint or night guard. These plastic mouthpieces fit over your upper and lower teeth so they don’t touch. They lessen the effects of clenching or grinding and correct your bite by putting your teeth in a more correct position. What’s the difference between them? You wear night guards while you sleep. You use a splint all the time. Your dentist will tell you which type you need. •Dental work. Your dentist can replace missing teeth and use crowns, bridges, or braces to balance the biting surfaces of your teeth or to correct a bite problem. Other Treatments.

Hi lybrate-user, the toothache you are suffering from may be due to any of the following causes 1. Cavity/tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture/broken tooth 3. An improper filling 4. Gum disease the most common cause is a cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. I suggest that that you consult me privately on lybrate, so that I can provide more specific answers. You will be able to send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

The Silent Signs of Gum Disease

MDS , BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The Silent Signs of Gum Disease

Overall oral health consists of health of both the soft and the hard tissues in the mouth. While teeth are the hard tissues, the soft tissues include the lips, tongue, cheek, palate, and most importantly the gums. The gums or the periodontium (perio - around, dont - tooth) surrounds the tooth and provides nutritional support and structural support with its connective tissue. The gums are the unsung heroes in maintaining a healthy set of teeth.

It is common observation that dental decay is more attended to than gum disease.  The symptoms associated with decay, be it discoloration, food lodgment, sensitivity, and sometimes pain are a lot more demanding.

The bad news is that the same bacteria have a harmful effect on the gums too. The good news is that gum disease also (like tooth decay), takes time to develop. The bacteria in the mouth and the plaque are the main initiators of gum disease too. It is more innocuous and not immediately attended to, sometime even gets ignored for years until it become severe and mandates treatment. Certain medical conditions like pregnancy, diabetes, stroke, etc., lead to greater severity of the gum disease.

Chronic gum or periodontal disease, if left untreated, can even lead to multiple tooth loss and require dentures much earlier than required. It is not difficult to diagnose gum disease as the symptoms are quite easy to identify, including

  • Red, swollen, or painful gums:  As with any infection, redness and swelling and pain are the first symptoms of gum disease too.
  • Spontaneous bleeding of gums: The gums can look spongy and puffed and can sometimes bleed without even a touch
  • Chronic bad breath: The bacteria are constantly acting on the food debris to produce acid, leading to a bad breath (halitosis)
  • Pressure on the gums can produce pus: Cumulative infection can lead to gingival abscess
  • Bad taste in the mouth: If there is an abscess, it will discharge pus into the mouth, leading to this metallic taste
  • Gingival recession, where the tooth appears to have grown longer. The gum line recedes from its original place, exposing more of the tooth.  This also causes greater sensitivity, especially to hot or cold foods
  • Slight loosening of the teeth (in severe cases) as the fibers loosen their hold around the tooth.
  • Painful chewing, it puts extra pressure on the fibers of the periodontium.

Some people are more prone for gum disease than others. The risk factors include smoking, increased 
female hormones, and chronic illnesses like diabetes and cancer.

Management: Regular visits to the dentist can help identify these at an early stage and manage both progression and severity. Additionally, managing risk factors like smoking and chronic illnesses also is helpful.

Hi, your son seems to b. E having a tongue tie. That makes moving tongue upward and outward difficult. This can be corrected with a minor tongue tie surgery. Get him to your dentist and get a complete checkup done. Tongue tie surgery can help him to freely move his tongue.

Brushing for 3 to 4 minutes is enough. Kindely do not exceed time. Use tongue cleaner also. And use clorhexidine mouth washes. If it still persists Visit a dentist and get Scaling done. It could be due to deposits in mouth.
