Geographic tongue is the name of a condition that gets its name from its map-like appearance on the upper surface and sides of the tongue. It may occur in other areas of your mouth, as well. You'll be relieved to know that geographic tongue is a harmless, benign condition that isn't linked to any infection or cancer. Two other names for geographic tongue are benign migratory glossitis and erythema migrans. Affecting about 1% to 3% of people, geographic tongue can show up at any age. However, it tends to affect middle-aged or older adults more often. It appears to be more common in women than in men. Symptoms of Geographic Tongue The telltale signs of geographic tongue are irregular, smooth, red patches on parts of the tongue. These patches may: Have a white or light-colored border Vary in size, shape, and color Appear one area, and then move to another area Come and go or change very quickly in days, weeks, or months Last up to a year You may be unaware that you have geographic tongue until your dentist or other health care provider diagnoses it during an oral exam. About one in 10 people with geographic tongue may have mild discomfort or a burning or painful sensation. This is often from sensitivity to substances such as: Hot, spicy, or acidic foods Cigarette smoke Toothpaste Causes and Risk Factors Geographic tongue occurs when parts of the tongue are missing layers of small bumps called papillae. They normally cover the entire upper layer of your tongue. Why do you lose these papillae with geographic tongue? Nobody knows for sure. However, because geographic tongue tends to run in families, genetics may be a common link. Geographic tongue has also been seen more frequently in people with psoriasis and in those with fissured tongue. In fissured tongue, cracks and grooves appear on the tops and sides of the tongue. Treatment or Self-Care for Geographic Tongue Seeing a dentist or doctor is the best way to rule out a more serious problem. In most cases, he or she can diagnose geographic tongue from a description of your symptoms and from examining your mouth and tongue. You may need tests to rule out other medical conditions. In most cases, any pain or discomfort will get better without treatment. But if you have severe, ongoing pain, medication can help. These are examples of what your doctor or dentist may prescribe: Over-the-counter pain relievers Anti-inflammatories Mouth rinses with anesthetic Corticosteroids applied directly on the tongue Zinc supplements If you're wondering about steps you can take to hasten the relief of symptoms, try limiting these substances or avoid them altogether: Tobacco Hot, spicy, or acidic foods or dried, salty nuts Toothpaste with additives, whitening agents, or heavy flavoring (toothpaste for sensitive teeth is a better choice)

Whats the remedy for mouth ulcers?

Dear - good evening - the best remedy for mouth ulcer is to remove the cause and in most of the cases - stress is the cause - so it is best to chill. Otherwise - if you believe in naturopathy - having loads of water on getting up in the morning, having good bowel habits in the morning, exercising and applying tomato juice on the ulcers are known to be helpful. If you want nedication - ulcers can also be caused by vit b complex defeiceiency - so having b comple forte - one a day - for 4 weeks can also be helpful. If the ulcers are real painful - then it is always better to apply medicated tube rexidin - m on the ulcers - 4 to 6 times a day with your clean finger. Hope these tips get you relief.

Well, I am a specialist for your question and i frequently perform cases like you. There is absolutely no harm in getting it removed together. Rather i even remove all 4 wisdom teeth for my patients in the same appointment. Its little tiring for the patient but it helps a lot because u have to take all medications only once and go thru the ordeal of stitches, mouthwash, swelling, leave from office, soft food,etc, only once and not multiple no. of times.

Hi, for pain relief, take any painkiller like combiflam two or three times a day as required. It will give you temporary relief. There are many causes of tooth pain like a tooth decay, broken tooth, gum problem etc. Visit your dentist for treatment of cause of pain. Regards.

Hi lybrate-user foul mouth odour can be due to a variety of problems. Most commonly, it indicates bacterial deposits on your teeth (plaque and calculus), which can be easily eliminated with a professional cleaning by your dentist. Occasionally it might arise from food debris accumulation within tooth cavities that may need to be filled, or in spaces between teeth which may require more frequent professional attention and regular, thorough interdental cleaning. Occasionally, foul mouth odour might also arise on a background of certain systemic diseases, and would improve as those diseases are controlled. See your dentist and discuss the problem with them, so the appropriate solution can be identified based upon an accurate diagnosis. Hope this helps.

Bleeding in gums is definitely due to infection. Along with scaling you need to change your brush type and brushing method i. E. If you are brushing harshly with hard bristle tooth brush it will definitely cause trauma to the inflamed gums. After you finished with your scaling i. E. After 24 hours you can start with warm saline rinses. Warm saline rinses means take warm water and 1 spoon of salt. Follow this type of rinsing at least for 5-7 days almost 5-6 times in a day.

If blood sugar level is maintained under normal range then implant is not a problem for you. But if you are not able to do so then implant failure can occur. You can go for any good dentist near to your locality, if not there then you can consult me.

To avoid infection and reduce pain in a first-degree burn on the tongue: rinse the area well with cool water for a few minutes. Remove any dirt or particles that may be on the burn. Wet a clean cloth with cool water and hold it on top of the burn. Suck on ice chips or a popsicle to soothe the pain. Gargle with cool water or salt water. Avoid warm or hot liquids, which could irritate the burn. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Sprinkle a few grains of sugar on the tongue to relieve pain.

Hi sometimes a rct requires multiple visits and you have to complete the procedure immediately. Don't worry about the pain it will subside once the rct is done properly. After completing the rct please cover the tooth with a crown for proper chewing.

Replace your missing tooth right away

Ask Free Question
Replace your missing tooth right away.

Missing teeth might look great in kids but not in adults.
If your tooth is missing it can lead to a whole lot of problems like cavities in the adjacent teeth, functional & esthetic impairement.
Also if a tooth is missing, the adjacent teeth start to drift in order to close the gap. Moreover the upper tooth starts drifting downwards if empty space is present & vice a versa. All this movement leads to sensitivity due to root exposure in the adjacent teeth or upper or lower teeth.
Hence it is very important to replace a tooth as soon as it is lost.
We can replace the tooth/teeth in 3 ways:
1. Removable Partial Denture
2. Bridge formation
3. Implant

Pain in the tooth can be due to caries or gum issues. If the tooth has a caries than it might need a root canal followed by a cap. If there are gum issues you need to get proper scaling polishing done from a dentist. Also make use to dental floss in your daily oral hygiene procedures.
