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..

Stop tobacco in any form, if using. Take some good antioxidants for a month. Sometimes stress also leads to such conditions so do take care of it.

Its could be due to decayed tooth. You need to get a radiograph done to ascertain the extent of decay.

If you have ruled out the option of going for orthodontic treatment (braces), you can surely close the gap betwen your teeth using veneers or crowns depending on the severity of the gap and size of the adjacent teeth. A gap of 1cm should be a difficult proposition to close but cosmetic treatment is surely possible.

My teeth and gums are very sensitive. Most of the time I suffer from tooth ache. During last few days I was suffering from severe ache in my jaws due to tooth decay. At present I am going through root canal in my right side bottom tooth, very painful. This is the condition of my teeth. Is it a cause of diabetes? One of my above tooth is also need extraction. I brush my teeth regularly twice a day and also clean my tongue, but still I am suffering from bad breath. I feel very embarrassing. Please suggest what type of care and prevention I should take in future to save my teeth.

Hello mam, thanks for your query. Well diabetes has deletrious effects on many organs and oral structure is one of them. It is associated with bone loss and gums problems and the best treatment is to maintain good oral hygiene and keep check on raised sugar level. We'll go for proper professional cleaning twice a year. Eat lots of fuits and drink good amount of fluids daily to maintain proper hydration of your body. These are few steps by which you can maintain your oral hygiene properly. Diet and regular cleaning is main part of your treatment. Regarding tooth decay you have to go for root canal procedure for that. It's painless now a days but in some conditions where infection is very severe, anesthesia doesn't work properly. So you might have to bear that discomfort. I hope my suggestion will be fruitful to you. Thanks and regards.

Your teeth will be more harm by tobacco and smoking. Go for scaling and polishing immediately and maintain your oral hygiene, stop smoking immediately or in phases to withdraw slowly and and clean after you smoke scaling does not harm teeth at all go for it straightaway you will be fine.

I am 72 years and Type II diabetic.Two main teeth from both sides of my bottom mouth were removed because they were moving long back. Now one main tooth from top right side and bottom left side are also moving. I want to get these two teeth also removed and go for new ones i.E.Six teeth total.What is the present method of fixing new teeth and what should be appx expenditure. Thanks in anticipation of your reply.

Hi Sir, We can replace the missing teeth by two options one is a removable one & the other is a fixed one. Removable ones are cheaper but not advisable. Fixed ones are called bridges.But to have a bridge the last teeth should be present.Without the last teeth it would be difficult to do bridge.Treatments vary based on the position of the missing teeth. Only a nearby dentist can guide you properly after clinically examined you. Regards JAI

Do you eat daily, do you bathe daily, do you breathe twenty times every minute if yes than you may find time for brushing twice daily especially at night or think of saying good bye to your teeth n health in general.

Dentist,
What exposes your teeth to abuse is not how much you eat, but how often you eat. Every time you eat, bacteria convert the carbohydrates in the food into acids that can dissolve your tooth enamel. By snacking throughout the day, you make your teeth susceptible to constant bacterial attack. Hence avoid eating high sugar, high acid foods between meals. Diet soda may have no sugar but the acid in it can be dangerous to your tooth enamel. If you have a sweet tooth, it’s best to have sweets at meal times!
