Dear ,please visit your dental surgeon who will examine and treat the cause of your pain which has come up after extraction of tooth and regulate your medicines also.Stomach pain can be due to hyperacidity so take antacid and for pain in mouth take treatment as advised by your treating dental surgeon.

Fast for 14 hours a day- Try to eat your last meal earlier in the day and then fast until breakfast the next morning. Studies suggest that this simple dietary adjustment—eating only when you’re most active and giving your digestive system a long break each day—may help you to lose weight

Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored. However there are medical conditions that causes excessive salivation injection glycopyrrolate reduces secretions in the mouth, throat, airway, and stomach.

Loose molar, that means it has some problem of gums surrounding that tooth. You should immediately consult a dental surgeon and get the treatment done. Medicines won't treat a loosen teeth and the pain is because of that.

Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. 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. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

In my teeth a black spot like hole is found and one of the front tooth is loose from the gum how to get rid of that. Please help me?

The black spot you see must be a carious tooth which can be a problem to you later on as a painful tooth so you must go for the restoration with tooth matching laser filling. Second problem of loose gum must be due to the periodontal problem of either improper brushing or you must be needing a complete oral prophylaxis.

My dentist has advised me to go for 5 root canal with crown placing for my teeth. The cost of crown is very expensive here. Each crown costs around Rs 5000 minimum. Can i just do Root Canal Treatment now and leave the crown out for some years and then later get the crowns done? I am in financial difficulty right now so dont know whether this is advisable or not since i have pain in 3 tooth right now.

Dentist, Trichy
'3 tooth ' according to u is canine? Ok, placing a crown after RCT is advisable as soon as possible to avoid complications. Teeth become brittle after RCT and tend to break during chewing or biting something. Crowns are generally placed to avoid such conditions and to prevent reinfections.

Ulcer might be due to various causes. Once you find out the cause the treatment is done perfectly. Get a consultation from the dentist of your choice and be free from this problem. Meanwhile you might use topical ointments like Mucopain.

Hello you need to visit a dentist get it checked. Get an x-ray done, if there is a cavity get it filled. If there is infection to the root of tooth get it treated and place a crown over it. Get your scaling and polishing done every 6 months.

Antibiotics, which are often administered prophylactically to prevent infection of the wounds created from tooth removal, have the potential to cause diarrhea. It is important to manage diarrhea to prevent dehydration.Eat the BRAT diet, which consists of bananas, plain rice, applesauce and plain toast. Consuming foods that are easy to digest and high in carbohydrates, such as those on the BRAT diet, decreases the stress on your digestive tract and allows your body to more rapidly recover from your diarrhea. Dark toast is dry and scratchy, so eat only lightly toasted bread to avoid irritating your exposed gums.Avoid eating fatty foods, foods high in fiber and dairy products until you have been free of diarrhea for at least three days. Consuming these foods can aggravate your diarrhea. Foods to avoid include fried foods, fruits, vegetables, milk, yogurt and ice cream.

Dr. I am having a mouth ulcer at the end of my lower wisdom tooth on left side of jaw. It doesn't heal. And gets worse if I have constipation or acidity .I can't eat any spicy food from that side. Should I remove my wisdom tooth. Or the Dr. has prescribed me turmax tablet for ten days. Please guide.

Dentist, Bhavnagar
your ulcer could be because of irregular angulation of the third molar you should get it recontoured or reshaped so that edges will not impinge into cheeks and further damage can be prevented. Use topical gel for relieving ulcer and honey. For acidity, start medicines, drink plenty of water and cold milk. Thank you.

Its recommended to go for a root canal treatment now because swelling can increase and it can be more painful. That will affect your exams also. So its better you go for it. It wont take much time.

What is the treatment of the toothache and cavities? Which kind of toothpaste best for anti cavities?
Tooth ache can be due to cavity or gum issues. If itis a cavity then you need to get a root canal treatment done followed by a crown. Smaller not deep cavity can be cure with fillings. To prevent cavity use fluoride rich tooth paste.

If scaling was to loosen gums the treatment would have not existed. We dentist also gets our scaling done every 6 months. As in spite of taking good care it is a must. your gums are bleeding. It shows that if you do not get your scaling done eventually you might also get bone loss problem n then weaken teeth. Visit a dentist for consultation.

Mouth ulcers can be due to various reasons like stress, deficiency, injury, etc. Please use mucopain for local application. You can take a multivitamin once daily for a month. Get a full mouth check up done for proper treatment.
