It is due to mumps parotitis. Conservative, supportive medical care is indicated for patients with mumps. No antiviral agent is indicated for treatment of this viral illness, as mumps is a self-limited disease. Encouraging oral fluid intake is essential, as maintenance of adequate hydration and alimentation of patients is important. Refrain from acidic foods and liquids as they may cause swallowing difficulty, as well as gastric irritation. Prescribe analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen) for headaches or discomfort due to parotitis. Topical application of warm or cold packs to the swollen parotid area may soothe the region. Stronger analgesics may be required for patients with orchitis. Bed rest, scrotal support, and ice packs are recommended.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Pls get a scaling done and then use hexidine mouthwash. Brushing really will not help until all deposits are cleaned from your teeth.

Going for an implant would be a better option as it would preserve the adjacent teeth. However the best option can be suggested after thorough examination and x rays.

How much a dental implant cost ?

BDS

Ask Free Question
Dear cost of dental implant varies from place to place and it also depends on the type of implant you are going for. Ideally it starts with 22-25 and can go up to 50 thousand per implant. Just keep in mind that implant treatment is a surgical one so don't go for very cheap options because it might cost you afterwards. Its a one time investment and in return you are getting an original look alike teeth which is the best option to replace a missing teeth now

I am 25 year old and having gum bleeding since last 05 years . It bleeds when brush also. Please suggest me treatment. There is black spots also appears since one year

Hello Thanks for the Query Bleeding Gums are usually because of accumulation of plaque and tartar on tooth surfaces. If It's only Gingivitis than you need to undergo Scaling and root planning(Professional teeth cleaning) If it's phyorrea you need to undergo scaling as well as flap procedure depending upon the condition. For thet same Visit a Periodontist(GumSpecalist) He can help you better in this case. And do change your brushing technique as faulty/wrong technique leads to accumulation of plaque and tartar Thank you Dr.Aman Bhatia

Get professional help. If deposits are there a professional cleaning will help. Regular mouth wash will keep your gums healthy, free of infection.

Sugary foods should be consumed in limited quantities as the bacteria in dental plaque changes them into acids.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique. Also 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. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

Alternatives for Improving Smile

A beautiful smile plays a very vital role in enhancing the overall beauty of face. Rotated, stained and mal-placed tooth can cause major aesthetic/cosmetic and psychological problems in teenage and young adults. Mid-line teeth gap, rotated teeth, crowded teeth, stained teeth, broken tooth edges and wearing tooth edges are the most common cosmetic problems that our patients report to us. Dynamic advancements in the field of dentistry has come across with the solution of majority of cosmetic problems.

Here we discuss the various options available for improving smile:

1. Veneers: they are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic glued to the front of your teeth. For teeth that are severely discoloured, chipped or misshapen and gaps between the teeth, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. A veneer is made to match the colour and shape of your tooth. Not everyone is a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Bleaching is not recommended if you have tooth colored fillings, crowns, caps or bonding in your front teeth. There are two types of veneers:

A. Porcelain (indirect) veneers, which must first be created to fit your teeth in a dental laboratory and require two visits to the dentist. Porcelain veneers are generally stronger, while composite veneers are less expensive. With porcelain veneers, the dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to the dental lab for fabrication of the veneer, usually after the front of the tooth has been reduced.

B. Composite (direct) veneers, which are bonded to your tooth enamel in a single visit. With either method, the tooth is prepared for bonding by roughening the front surface with mild etching solution. The veneer can then be bonded to your tooth using a dental bonding cement.

2. Bonding: it uses composite resin to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile. After applying a very mild etching solution that slightly roughens the surface of your teeth and permits the bonding material to adhere, your dentist applies the resin and sculpts, colours and shapes it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light hardens the material, which is then finely polished. Bonding agents are used in treatment of midline gap closures, fractured tooth restoration, wearing teeth edges.

3. Whitening: some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others. Others have teeth that yellow with age. Your natural tooth colour can also be affected by many factors. Surface stains (called extrinsic stains by dentists) and discolouration can be caused by:
A. Tobacco (whether smoked or chewed)
B. Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine
C. Eating highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
D. Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
E. Treatment with the antibiotic tetracycline during the time when teeth are forming
F. Yellowing or greying of the teeth as part of the aging process
G. Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth's nerve, giving the tooth a brown, grey or black colour.

Whitening/bleaching is a simple procedure where whitening agents are applied over the tooth surface in order to chemically change the colour of tooth. It can either be a single visit clinical procedure or multiple application home procedure under the guidance of your dentist.

Will my newly whitened teeth stain?
Any tooth can stain, including the veneers and bonds mentioned above. To help prevent stains from coming back, avoid smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and heavily coloured foods. And brush your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste.
