I have gum problem from last two months. When I brush my teeth in morning blood come out from my gums. I have used so many things for this. Please advise ne what should I do? Thanks.

- 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 or hydrogen peroxide 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. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Well you should visit a dentist and get your teeth cleaned & polished. Maintain a habit of brushing twice daily, use mouth wash as well as use a tongue cleaner. Avoid eating raw onion.

Hi am 26 years male. I have a problem of bad breath from my mouth. Please advise me what to do.

BDS
Dentist, Ujjain
Sometimes long term medications are also responsible for bad breath. And the other reason for this condition is due to accumulation of plaque and debris which is not easiely removed with your daily brushing, so consult nearest dentist for scaling.

The root canal treatment is done for the whole mouth at once or only for the tooth which has problem.

BDS
Dentist, Bharuch
Root canal treatment has to be done in teeth which is problemetic by means of symptoms and also some times without symptoms but cause should be there. Some time whole mouth required root canal treatment in full mouth rehab cases though there is no problem in teeth.

Hello Doctor, I am suffering from frequent tongue ulcers earlier it came twice a month but from few months it is coming regularly once the boil is present on left side and soon it goes after some week ulcer again comes on right side and once I change toothbrush or if I get hurt during brushing then also ulcers are coming what should I do to cure it. Thank you.

Dentist, Delhi
Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are tonsils, trauma from teeth, dry mouth, tonsillitis, stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of spicy n hot foods. Start some vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Increase your water intake. Avoid oilly & spicy food completely

A central inciser lower teeth treated with root canal, after a month it started pain.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS, Medicine
Dentist, Mohali
Visit the same dentist again. It shouldn't pain. Either the root canal done is not proper or else there might be some other reason. You can share xray if you have for better diagnosis!

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

Pros And Cons Of Patanjali Danth Kanthi

Dentist, Visakhapatnam
Pros And Cons Of Patanjali Danth Kanthi

Hello Lybrate Users,

I am posting on this topic as many of users have been asking on the same issue.

 

Pros

1. It has nice taste.

2. Freshness lasts longer.

3. Has good antibacterial property of neem and turmeric.

4. Its soothing action on the cavities and gums.

5. Minimum side effects.

 

Cons:

1. It cannot be an alternative to dental treatment as it cannot reverse progression of disease of gums or cavities.

2. As it soothens (obtundant) effect of clove oil on regular basis misguides the pain response which would end up in the end stages of the disease finally results increased cost of dental treatment in late stages of the disease or the tooth should be removed if caries or periodontal progression goes beyond to save the tooth.

3. The turmeric might cause tooth discolouration in long run.

 

As far as to my knowledge is concern use it just if you want to give a try but I will never recommend on a daily basis.

I have a cavity in my teeth, it puts hole in my teeth and due to this it's started paining in my ears and eyes. Please help to get relief?

BDS, Bachelor of Sciences
Dentist, Agra
Hello, thanks for your query. According to your details your cavity is a deep cavity which enters your pulp (nerve, blood supply) of particular tooth. You should go for an x ray of the tooth and may be for root canal treatment. For medicines for pain and infection you can consult me with an iopar i. E, xray of that tooth. Thanks.

I am facing some problem with my mouth smell can you suggest to relief from smell in mouth and teeth.

Hello lybrate-user, in addition to deposits in teeth, also note that systemic conditions like acidity can also lead to bad smell or halitosis. Pls note that if you have acidity or have symptoms such as belching, heartburn, frequent burps and burning sensation after a heavy meal indicates gastric issues. You many need to address that as well in case your problem is not resolved with scaling alone. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, apke jo daant toote the accident mein wo permanent daant the, milk teeth nhi. Wo dobara nhi ate. Isilie apko artificial teeth hi lgwane padenge, jinhe bridge kehte hain. Har dentist ke alag charges hote hain bridge lgane ke. But average cost is rs 2000 per tooth. Ap implant bhi lgwa sakte hain but wo treatment thoda mehenga hai, about 10000-12000 per tooth.
