I am 24 year old male. I am having pain in my jaw at the right side. In chewing food and in opening a wide mouth

Hi , thanks for the query as per your words the pain and difficulty in opening of mouth can be because of erupting or impacted wisdom tooth. For the time being for relief do gargles with warm water + salt and visit your dentist for the treatment . Thank you Dr. Aman Bhatia Chandigarh

Visit your dentist for scaling and polishing of teeth. Commonly food particles get adhered to teeth surface.

Quick Facts about TOOTH Sensitivity:
? Tooth sensitivity is the pain you may feel when you eat or drink hot or cold foods or drinks.
? Sensitivity happens when gums pull away from the teeth or when gum tissue is lost. This exposes the tooth root area below the gum line ,resulting in sensitivity.
? USE a toothbrush with soft bristles to avoid hurting your gums and teeth.
? You can also ask your dentist about special toothpastes for sensitive teeth.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, yellow color of teeth can be extrinsic/intrinsic. If extrinsic stains are there, they can be removed by scaling n polishing. For intrinsic stains we should go for bleaching, veneering. You can use some herbal teeth whitening toothpaste also.

Go for scaling and polishing. This will treat pyorrhoea n will even make your teeth look good. For erupting teeth pain you can take some painkillers.

Hi lybrate-user, It seems you have a hypertrophied muscle, this is basically due to over activity of muscle. Probably you might b a night grinder (involuntary grinding of teeth at sleep). U must visit a dentist and get a night guard made. It will definitely help you out.

Sensodyne toothpaste and rexidin m gel are not for gum problem at all. Gums seem to be weak. Apply stolin astr nd rexidin mouthwash. Eat vit c food ie lemon orange tamarind etc

It's dentinal sensitivity. Treatment based on severity. But cause is usually attrition or abrasion of enamel surface. So need replacement wid enamel substitute.

Save a Knocked Out Tooth!

BDS, Certification In Oral Implantology
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Save a Knocked Out Tooth!

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults. With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be successfully replanted and last for years. It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible after the tooth is knocked out. Quick action will increase the likelihood of saving the tooth.

Saving a Knocked Out Tooth:
1. Pick up tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) not the root:
Locate the tooth immediately; do not leave it at the site of the accident. The tooth should be handled carefully touch only the crown to minimize injury to the root.

2. If dirty, gently rinse tooth with water:

  • Do not use soap or chemicals
  • Do not scrub the tooth
  • Do not dry the tooth
  • Do not wrap it in a tissue or cloth

3. Reposition tooth in socket immediately, if possible:
The sooner the tooth is replaced, the greater the likelihood it will survive. To reinsert, carefully push the tooth into the socket with fingers, or position above the socket and close mouth slowly. Hold the tooth in place with fingers or by gently biting down on it.

4. Keep tooth moist at all times:
The tooth must not be left outside the mouth to dry. If it cannot be replaced in the socket, put it in one of the following:

  • Emergency tooth preservation kit
  • Milk
  • Mouth (next to cheek)
  • Regular tap water is not recommended for long term storage because the root surface cells do not tolerate water for long periods of time.

5. See a dentist within 30 minutes:
Bring the tooth to a dentist as soon as possible, ideally, within 30 minutes. However, it is possible to save the tooth even if it has been outside the mouth for an hour or more.

Hi. I'm 24 yrs old. My gums are bleeding. I'm worried that it will lead to bad breath. Please help.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
I think you have developed gingivitis(bleeding gums) which causes bleeding. Get scaling (cleaning)done which might reduce your bleeding to some extent and this will also help you in reducing bad breath. Do flossing and use mouthwash.

Do you have pain in one tooth or do you have generalised pain? if you have pain in one tooth then kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. But if you have generalised pain then kindly get scaling done and use gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

I don't think that home remedies are much useful to it. If you are worried about the side effects of the medicines then you must think of taking homoeopathic medicines which are completely safe, and no complications and also give permanent results. But with proper consultation You may try till then Merc Sol 30 1 dose every week.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Dear Amritesh your teeth are getting yellow .you can use baking soda and lime juice paste.but very cautiously because this can harm teeth if used excessively . this yellowishness may be due to poor oral hygiene . you need to improve your oral hygiene and digestion . visit dental surgeon for scaling and polishing .

Hello Bleeding gums is a very common problem it happens because of calculus deposition because of which bad breath occurs. Even by brushing those deposits will not go they are hard calcium stuck to your teeth. The only treatment is scaling in a dental clinic by ultrasonic machine. Hardly takes time and is painless. Go for it and you no longer wil suffer from bad breath or bleeding during brushing or gargle.
