Hi, I'm 21 and facing a lot of ulcer problems. On my tongue as well as mouth. I know they are anxiety related and also stomach constipation problems. What can i do to remove them from the root? These ulcers tend to become very big and stay for two to three weeks. They are painful.

Chipped Tooth - How To Fix It?

Chipped Tooth - How To Fix It?

You are in the middle of a hot summer afternoon and decide to have some ice to cool off. Suddenly you hear a crackle and something comes into your mouth that doesn't quite taste like ice. Oops! That's a part of your broken teeth! Although your first instinct is to panic, don't worry as there are a lot of things dentists can do these days to fix chipped teeth.

A tooth may chip off for some other reasons too. Decay being one of the main culprits, it erodes the top enamel leaving the tooth exposed to decay. Taking an unsightly fall or getting your teeth broken in a fight are some of the other reasons why your teeth may break o partially chip off. Here are some things you can do:

  • Take care of you chipped tooth: The first thing to do when you realize that you have a chipped tooth is to see a dentist. If you are unfortunately suffering from this problem on a weekend when a dentist near you isn't accessible, keep the jagged edge of the broken tooth covered with a sugarless chewing gum or paraffin. If you get hungry, opt for a liquid diet or soft solids that don't require chewing. 
  • Treatment: Filling or bonding that is if you've chipped a visible tooth in your frontline, your dentist will use a tooth coloured composite resin for a 'bonding' procedure. If it is one of your inside teeth, your dentist may try a simple 'filling' to fix things up. Bonding is pretty much 'gluing' bits of your artificial teeth on. The dentist clears up the surface to place the adhesive and sticks the bonding material and then hardens it into shape with ultraviolet light.
  • Adding a crown or dental cap: This procedure is used when a larger piece of tooth chips off, it happens mainly due to decay. The dentist will chip off the edges from your broken teeth and cover it with a crown or cap to protect the tooth from further damage. The cap also acts as a cosmetic fixture not making anyone realize that it is different from your real teeth.

Patients are generally given a choice on the material for the cap, which they can choose based on cost and cosmetics. A metal cap is the strongest, but can make you look like a villain from yesteryears, which has an evil glint in every smile. The other common options are porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic or all resin. This procedure will require more than one visit for x-rays, taking an impression of the tooth, trial for your crown and finally fixing it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Almost every morning i am bleeding in the teeth whenever I brush it. What should I do?

Almost every morning i am bleeding in the teeth whenever I brush it. What should I do?
One of the most common reasons for bleeding gums is gingivitis. In easy terms, gingivitis is inflammation (swelling) of gums. It is mostly dude to the accumulation of plaque over a long period. The plaque becomes hard is causes inflammation leading to bleeding when you brush or eat anything hard. You should immediately see a dentist to get a round of scaling (cleaning) done.

I just want after the use of hard tooth brush my gums has poor I just want to ask how to I grow back receding gums.

I just want after the use of hard tooth brush my gums has poor I just want to ask how to I grow back receding gums.
Dear Lybrate user, immediately stop using the toothbrush that caused the problem. You can opt for sensodyne soft/ultrasoft toothbrush instead. Be very gentle while brushing, the harder you brush, the sooner will your teeth and guns wear out. You can find a lot of you tube videos which demonstrate the correct brushing technique. Keep massaging your gums with a gum astringent like stolin gum paint/tanid thrice daily for 10 days. Apply a drop or 2 on your finger and gently massage it in all areas where the recession is maximum. Let it stay in contact with your gums for 8-10 minutes during which do not swallow or spit. After 10 minutes gently spit but don't rinse your mouth, don't eat or drink anything for 30 minutes and keep spitting out the excess saliva. Also, visit a dentist to assess the degree of gum recession in case it needs any further treatment. Best wishes.

Her permanent are in state of eruption, before milk should. This is what going on in her case. This is normal, nothing to worry. Get her check up if permanent tooth takes too long to erupt after the milk tooth goes.
