Wait for 29-15 days. After healing you can get relief. But if symptoms persist longer then contact the dentist who did extraction. Do warm saline gargle. Rinse your mouth with antiseptic mouth wash.

This is exactly the thick mucus which is troubling your mouth, so this is due to dehydration of the mouth area, this will get hydrated with fresh fruits, salads, shakes and iron rich diet and milk products in any form and dry fruits like raisins, and get your layer consistency back to normal

There are treatments available for reduced mouth opening. You can get medications, mouth exercises and injections in the cheek weekly for continuous one year. Its slow and not very efficient method. The current best treatment is to go for LASER surgery which is costly yet fastest way for treating your problem. You can consult me further in this regard.

Yes, what you state indicates that your last molar is impacted and is obstructed by the 2nd molar in its eruption. If not extracted, it will keep on causing psin and trouble repeatedly.

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.

Hello! bleeding could be because of deposits on your teeth. Visit your dentist and get a deep scaling done. Brush twice a day and rinse after every meal.

When I press my gums there is smelly discharge from front lower gums and sometimes gums swell ,i have started using mouthwash and pepsodent -g toothpaste what more should I go for

There is infection of gums so you have to get scaling done from dentist.Mostly scaling is sufficient but if problem persists than xray is advised as there could be big spaces between teeth below gums.

If hot or cold foods make you wince, you may have a common dental problem—sensitive teeth. Sensitivity in your teeth can happen for several reasons, including:

If hot or cold foods make you wince, you may have a common dental problem—sensitive teeth. Sensitivity in your teeth ...
Hello lybrate-user, sensitivity is sharp, shooting type of sensation in teeth on contact of extremely cold or hot food which usually lasts for a few seconds and disappears completely after that and re-occurs again on such stimulus. Treatment plan for sensitive teeth goes as follows: 1. You can use any commercially available desensitizing toothpastes such as colgate sensitive or sensodyne as first line of treatment. If it reduces your sensitivity substantially you can continue brushing with toothpaste in long run to avoid further sensitivity. 2. If you don't get any relief from desensitizing toothpastes it indicates a more severe problem which will need further treatment like layering/coating the damaged tooth surface or filling of the tooth if there is big cavity or root canal treatment in extreme cases getting proper treatment leads to permanent relief in sensitivity problem.

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hi pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, tooth abcess, gum disease, and fracture of tooth. You need to go for proper investigation to rule out the cause of pain. After that treatment plan can be decided. For plaque, get scaling done. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.
