Pan masala chewing I can't open my mouth how I open my mouth my voice is also changed. please tell what to do.?
Pan mascara contains betel nut and causes serious oral disease. Quit this habit as early as possible to avoid further transformation. Go to a good dentist for proper investigation. You may have oral submucous fibrosis. Get the treatment accordingly.

All you have to do is squish oil in mouth for 10-15 minutes and spit it out. The best oil for oil pulling is coconut oil, although it can be done with sesame, sunflower or mustard oil.

Please get an radio graph done, to see for any pathology or pulpal exposure, and if the pain still persists ask your dentist your remove the filling and give you a temporary dressing, and if the pain still persists you need to either get a RCT done or extraction since its 3rd molar.

I am suffering from halitosis .i had sinus but now I am fine since suffering from halitosis.
Halitosis can be due to hard & soft deposits on the teeth, dental caries and food impaction or infection in any neighbouring areas of oral cavity. Eg. Rhinitis (cold), sinusitis, throat infection etc. Consult a dentist for scaling, filling of dental caries. Get treatment for any infections present. This will help you to get rid off halitosis.

Hello lybrate-user, I have read your problem. As far as foul smell from mouth is concerned this can be due to some reasons which include poor oral hygiene (deposition of food in subgingival areas of gums), food intake like intake of milk containing products, garlic, onion, drug induced, medical conditions like sinusitis. Do not be worried so much I will suggest you to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily. Do chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly.

What Is Gum Disease and How to Prevent It?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Jaipur
What Is Gum Disease and How to Prevent It?

Gum disease is characterized by inflammation of the gums caused by the bacteria present in plaque (a colorless and sticky film on the teeth). This disease affects the soft tissue and the bones surrounding the teeth. The bacteria causes irritation in the gums leading to infection and bleeding, while brushing your teeth.

The symptoms of gum disease are bleeding gums, over sensitive gums, continuous bad breath, change in the normal placement of teeth etc.

Following are a number of reasons why gum diseases occur, some of them are: 

  1. Prevailing diseases: Sometimes diseases, such as malignant tumors and AIDS can disrupt the immune system of the body. Due to the malfunctioning immune system, the gums become vulnerable to issues such as cavities.
  2. Smoking and alcohol consumption: Smoking and alcohol consumption cause problems in the gum tissue as the gums lose their ability to repair themselves effectively.
  3. Hormonal changes: Changes in behavior of the hormones in the body can increase sensitivity in the gums. This can make the gums prone to diseases.
  4. Not following proper dental hygiene: Not brushing and flossing on a regular basis can cause plaque accumulation in the teeth. The bacteria present in the plaque may cause gum diseases.
  5. Family history: If many people in the family have suffered from gum disorders, then your chances of getting gum diseases are relatively higher.

How can you prevent gum disease?
Gum diseases can be prevented by following proper dental hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing on a regular basis are the best methods of preventing gum diseases. Regular dental checkups are also recommended to identify any gum problems early and also prevent them. Modifications in lifestyle such as limiting smoking, eating a diet rich in antioxidants and reducing stress can also help in preventing gum diseases.

Severe cases of gum diseases may require surgery but mild cases can disappear by following a proper dental hygiene. Gum diseases have also been known to be associated with diabetes and heart diseases.

I am having yellow teeth and they have turned black mostly and also having bad breath what can I do to cure them?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
I am having yellow teeth and they have turned black mostly and also having bad breath what can I do to cure them?
Hello. When brushing twice a day and flossing doesn't help improve your yellow teeth, it's time to consider other options. Teeth become yellow due to stains – both deep and surface-level – as well as other causes that sometimes aren't under our control. Although coffee and cigarettes leave stains on your teeth over time, thin tooth enamel also makes teeth look yellow. Tooth enamel is the hard, white surface of your teeth, and underneath it is a pale brown substance called dentin. Thick enamel looks white, but thin enamel allows dentin tones to show through, making teeth look yellow from the outside. Enamel naturally wears thin as people age, but acids from foods and drinks such as sour candies, oranges and soda also thin the enamel by eroding its surface. Saliva neutralizes acid and washes it away, but people suffering from dry mouth miss out on this protective effect. Other causes of yellow teeth include antibiotic use or excessive fluoride intake in young children, which can cause yellow-stained adult teeth later. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development. Certain medication, mouth rinses can also causes yellow staining. Preventing Yellow Teeth: Avoiding smoking, coffee and soda helps prevent yellow teeth, or you can get into the habit of drinking those darker beverages through a straw. Drink milk or plain water after eating or drinking something acidic to help reduce the acid's eroding effect. Brushing and flossing also help, and avoiding snacks between meals allows your saliva to dilute the acids in your mouth too. Using over-the-counter whitening agents will also helps. Discolorations are generally responsive to bleaching procedures. For black teeth and bad breath from mouth: These two are interrelated. Teeth turning black may be due to cavity in teeth which also is responsible for bad breath from mouth. Visit a dentist for treating the cavity.

There could be deep gum pocket in your canine area which bleeds so you should get scaling (cleaning done by dentist ) done and maintain hygiene afterwards and you would be ok.

The hollowness you can see is the extraction socket.(in my opinion) after tooth extration it may take 30-45 days for new bone formation. Please continue with the medication and do regular followups for further treatment. You can replace the extracted tooth after complete healing with ceramic bridge or implant as suggested by your dentist.
