You can have it, but from other side of the mouth. Avoid soda containing beverages. Avoid spicy food. Brush and rinse thoroughly after eating.

Pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, dry mouth. Gum disease, and fracture of tooth. You need to be investigated and diagnosed first for proper treatment plan. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water or ibuprofen 1 tablet after meal. Rinse mouth three times with chlorhexidine mouthwash after each meal.

Oral submucous fibrosis is a premalignant condition which affects the whole mouth. It is caused by consumption of supari and tobacco. The chances of getting oral cancer are almost 19 times if you have submucous fibrosis. The chances are increased in those who continue to consume tobacco, supari or alcohol. Even after quitting the habits, the increased risk of cancer persists for 10-15 years. Furthermore, submucous fibrosis is not known to revert back to normal. If one continues the habits, the chances of getting further fibrosis which leads to trismus and difficulty in mouth opening increases. If trismus occurs, Various treatments like jaw stretching exercises, lycopene, antioxidants, steroid and hyaluronidase injections to surgery with flaps and coronoidectomy have been tried with different levels of success. As you don't have decreased mouth opening at present, no intervention is advisable. Close Clinical observation 6 monthly by a head and neck surgeon or a surgical oncologist is advisable, so that they can detect cancer at an early curative stage. But definitely you have to quit smoking and alcohol as if not only increases the severity of the submucous fibrosis, but also increases the chances of cancer. If you want to discuss further, donot hesitate to contact me directly.

I brush my teeth twice a day but I have noticed that my teeth colour has become yellow which was not the case earlier. What should I do?

If you are brushing very vigorously, then due to excessive friction, there is loss of enamel. When the enamel layer of the teeth is thinned, teeth start appearing yellow due to dentin, the inner layer. Brush using soft toothbrush and clean all areas in 2 minutes.
