Hello, bad smell could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

If cavity is not deep or there is no pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then go for restoration (filling) but if cavity is deep or there is pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then first get the x-ray done of that tooth and send me the x-ray picture for further diagnosis.

It takes time to heal. 2016 revision of the clinical practice guideline for the management of candidiasis lists a large number of specific treatment regimens for Candida infections that involve different Candida species, forms of antifungal drug resistance, immune statuses, and infection localization and severity normally a dentist would prescribe an antifungal cream like candida containing clotrimazole if they do not work then, fluconazole is the proven treatment. In severe cases amphotericin B will be prescribed also it is important your mother uses chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly. And in case she is wearing dentures she should wash them and keep them clean also. And she should not be on any steroid treatment etc. Also it is importa if it doeant get treated.

I am suffering from trismus, what is treatment for that and what time it will take, how much will be expense?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
There are several causes of trismus, you should mention it next time. Treating the cause help you to overcome your problem. Treatment charges would be as low as 200 rupees by consulting on phone. It can go thousands of rupees if trapped by quakes. Meanwhile you can get some temporary relief by taking medicines like divon plus, flexon Mr. etc. Therapy can be mix of jaw exercise, pain killers, in severe cases we use local steroid injections, diazepam, etc. THANK YOU.

child's oral hygiene tips
A childs first tooth appears around 6months of age. Oral care should be strarted from then only. Wipe the teeth with clean gauze pieces. Do not let the baby sleep with milk bottles in their mouth. By the age of 2 yrs supervise the childs brushing twice a day with a fluoridated paste of only a pea sized quantity in rotatory motions. Make yr childs dental visits every 6months a priority.

After removing braces in most of the cases we suggest for retention appliance. The one which is given to you is also used for retention. In case you are seeing spaces again , visit your dentist. Mostly it is not giving proper retention. you can go for fixed retention after consulting your dentist

Whether the pain is localized or generalized (in one tooth or all the teeth or a set of teeth, accordingly the treatment differs, generally colgate sensitive pro-relief provides relief but for localized treatment you have to visit a dentist.

Any erupting wisdom tooth will push its way out through gum and causes extra tissue to form around the tooth. When chewing, this tissue is trapped between upper and lower teeth which causes pain due to biting that extra gum. You can do warm salt water gargling. But its very important to get it checked by the dentist and take appropriate antibiotic to prevent complications.

It is painkiller and if taken too often they it can harm you. If you have toothache then you may take homoeoapthic medicine Coffea Cruda 30 tds for 1 day. It is advisable to take any medicine with proper consultation.
