I have this mouth ulcers problem every month I suffer with dat problem can you please suggest me how can I avoid getting them?

MD - Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
General Physician, Malda
Unfortunately there is still no clear cut reason established for recurrent mouth ulcers. It can be due to nutrition deficiency, poor oral hygiene, bad dental condition, hormonal or genetic. All you need to do is to maintain proper oral hygiene and take nutritious foos with antioxidant property like fruits and green leafy vegetables. You can use ointment kenacort for relief during ulcer eruption.

You must visit a dental surgeon and get your teeth cleaning and polishing done with gum treatment. Use colgate total paste twice a day and use listerine mouthwash regularly.

Hello for mouth ulcers you can apply dologel-ct gel. Just take the gel on your finger and apply on the ulcer. Don't rinse after that. You can spit. Apply atleast 3, 4 times a day. Also take vitamin b complex one tablet daily.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with t. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical. Strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

I have a sensitivity in my teeth and I used colgate pro relief but still my sensitivity doesn't.

Visit a dentist to find out the cause of the sensitivity. If the case if very severe, using a simple over-the-counter toothpaste will not be enough. A suitable treatment must be undertaken followed up by maintenance using an anti sensitivity paste.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

Always make use of the cold therapy within the first 24-48 hours of the acute stage of an injury, to prevent tissue damage, or after the first 48 hours if inflammation persists.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Orthodontic treatment is never possible in so short span of time, and if your milk tooth is giving you pain, it has to be extracted, and if space is needed, you don't have to undergo implantation procedure, it has to be decided after careful analysis.

The dentist advised you right. As the permanent teeth below erupt at 10 to 12 years of age. And if we remove the tooth before age. The teeth below (permanent tooth) might not erupt straight. In allignment with other teeth.

Hi your problem seems indicate less salivation which in turn may lead to odour or bad breath. You need to improve your daily water intake and use a hexidine mouthwash to prevent bad breath. Also visit your dentist to get a check up done for cleaning and any tooth decay which maybe leading to bad breath. Thank u.

Dear lybrate-user, a dentist has tools to remove a cap. It can have its own disadvantages, but your cap has to be removed to further any treatment. Please see a dentist and ask him to get an x ray of the tooth concerned. Mostly it happens when the tooth has not got rct treated.

Bleeding from gums occur due to gum infection and gum infection is caused due to bacteria deposit so in both the cases you need to get dental cleaning every 6mnths in a year and do not eat onions and garlic.
