kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath.

HAVING BLEEDING GUMS??????
Bleeding from gums is very common sign reported by many patients while brushing or flossing. Can u avoid an important sign your body is giving you. what to do now????
Bleeding gums can be caused by improper brushing, food accumulations, lack of vitamin-c, or pregnancy. First thing that you need to do is report to a dentist. They will schedule an appointment for teeth cleaning and may be some gum treatments if required.
Secondly have a rich fibrous intake and have lots of juicy fruits like Amla, Oranges, Pineapple etc.
Thirdly make sure you brush twice and your dentist might add a medicated mouthwash to your daily regime.
So no longer worry but do not ignore such an important sign.

I am suffering from leukoplakia in the left buckle mucosa. I have taken biopsy. Biopsy report shows" squamous hyperplasia with dysplasia.

BDS, MDS, MBA (Healthcare), FAM
Dentist, Hyderabad
Leukoplakia is a condition typically seen in tobacco users. Mainly smokeless tobacco like paan with tobacco, zarda, khaini, pan masala etc. Leukoplakia has a predisposition to turn into oral cancer. But if diagnosed early as in your case the recovery can be complete! I am really glad that you have undergone the biopsy and if biopsy shows squamous hyperplasia with dysplasia it means that we have caught the lesion early and nothing is there to worry as it has not transformed into an oral cancer lesion. How ever you need to get the rest of the lesion treated and that can nowadays be done with a laser which is painless and has fantastic healing capabilities! alternatives would be surgical excision of the lesion and re biopsy of the entire lesion that has been removed to make sure that none of the cells in that area have turned into cancer cells! but before all that what is most important is that you will need to stop the usage of tobacco totally as now you are predisposed to getting these lesions easily! tobacco is now a poison for you and if continued to be used then recurrence can occur and with severe consequences! I there fore sincerely request you to stop this habit instantly and plan for the removal of the lesion after you have gotten over the habit! thank you and take care!

Tooth Sensitivity: Causes and Management

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Jaipur
Tooth Sensitivity: Causes and Management

Dental problems can be very painful and take the smile off your face completely. Those who have experienced sensitivity would vouch for it. It just will not allow you to enjoy the hot coffee or a favourite sweet or a cold smoothie.  The pain that shoots down the tooth after any of these would leave the person shuddering.

The tooth has 3 layers, from the outside in these are the enamel, the dentin and the pulp.  The outermost enamel is mineralized and the hardest structure in the body. The next layer, dentin, has fine tubules and when the enamel is worn off exposing the dentin, sensitivity sets in. The enamel is thinner in some portions of the tooth like the neck and the roots, therefore sensitivity onset is quicker in these areas.

Some of the common reasons for sensitivity are listed below:

  1. Tooth decay:  As caries progresses from enamel to dentin, sensitivity sets in, especially to hot and cold foods.
  2. Wear and tear:  Excessive brushing of teeth can lead to wearing of teeth, especially near the neck areas, leading to loss of enamel and resulting in sensitivity.
  3. Dental damage:  Chipped or broken tooth can lead to sensitivity.
  4. Gingival disease: This leads to loss of gum cover over the tooth, leading to exposure of dentin and therefore sensitivity.
  5. Bruxism: Clenching of teeth, common in people with high levels of stress, can lead to enamel wearing and subsequent sensitivity.
  6. Dental treatment: Some dental procedures like scaling, crowns, root planing, and some fillings can cause transient sensitivity.
  7. Highly acidic food items: Citrus fruits, tomatoes, tea, etc. can lead to tooth sensitivity.
  8. Bleaching agents:  Most tooth whitening agents result in sensitive teeth.
  9. Excessive use of mouthwash: The mouth rinses contain high amount of alcohol which can also lead to tooth sensitivity.

Management: As with all health conditions, the first step in management is to identify the problem.  Whether it is dental decay or recent dental treatment, food habits or tooth whitening agents, the cause needs to be identified and then treatment begun accordingly.

  1. For lost enamel, be it decay or damage, the tooth again needs to be restored to its original form to cover the dentinal tubules and reduce sensitivity.
  2. For habits, be it food related or bruxism, in addition to treating the tooth, the habit per se needs to be addressed to prevent recurrence.
  3. For associated dental products like whitening agents or mouth rinses, talk to a dentist to switch to a less harmful product.
  4. De-sensitizing pastes are also available that can be used on a regular basis to reduce the problem.

Tooth sensitivity is annoying but there are ways to manage it effectively.

Toothpicks can be an alternative to use for flossing if dental floss is not available. Remember not to be too harsh while using it.

i think your problem has the root cause in your Respiratory system.and for this a local examination is required to rule out possibilities for this problem.So I advise you to visit a local ENT specialist as he can guide you properly about your problem and will help you solve your opening mouth habit while sleeping.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

It is a dental problem. You might have some missing teeth in your mouth ,specially back molar teeth. This causes disturbance in closing and biting your upper and lower teeth properly. And hence some problem in your TMJ joint (jaw joint ,near your ear. If you have no pain then it's not emergency. But better you consult a dentist and get your bite corrected.

According to the details you gave, you may go for the root canal treatment in m2 if the tooth can be saved, and if it can not be saved get the teeth removed. Dentist may give you more information on that seeing the xray if you can put it. And in m1, go for cavity filling it can easily be saved.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.
