Use proper brushing techniques with a fluridated toothpaste. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean.

Hi. There could be cavity in tooth causing pain. Mostly it might go for root canal treatment or if its wisdom tooth then go for extraction. A xray would surely confirm diagnosis.

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning to remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

You will need to get a checkup done. It us quite likely that there is some infection that requires treatment. Since you are breastfeeding, such treatment needs to be carefully planned to avoid any adverse impact of the medicines you might need to have on your child. Do let us know if you need any further help.

Hello lybrate-user, you may be having excessive salivation. But during day time we keep swallowing it, but during deep sleep swallowing reflexes are slow, so saliva droops out of the mourh on pillow. It may be due to 1. Side sleep posture 2. Sinus infection 3. Acidity.

there are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -Certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -Sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -Some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Coeliac disease and Crohn's disease. -When you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take 'Becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief..

Both cavities and bad breath are one of the cause of food enlodgement in between the teeth leading to improper oral hygiene. First of visit a dentist for proper clinical examination, and proper treatment plan, for cavities get them filled as early as possible before they become deep enough reaching the pulp (nerve) causing its irritation leading to pain and infection. For bad breath go for professional cleaning (scaling and polishing) followed by maintaining proper oral hygiene by practicing correct method brushing technique twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste, flossing daily, rinsing your mouth with water after anything you eat or drink, brushing your tongue even. Drinking lots of water.
