I have cavities in my teeth since 6 years of age now it increase which paste I prefer to use? Please advise.

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Delhi
More than paste its the way of brushing, frequency of brushing, dietary habits which is responsible for tooth decay or cavities. Please visit a nearby dentist to chalk out a comprehensive treatment plan for you which will include fillings, teaching brushing, modifying eating habits, regular reviews etc.

Temporary loose wires can be fixed by using a pencil or the back of a spoon to gently push them back in place. Wax or a wet cotton ball can also be used if the loose wire is causing a lot of discomfort.

Dairy products, soft breads, softer grains, sea food and soft meat, soft cooked vegetables and many more are braces friendly foods i.e. which can be eaten without any difficulty even when one is undertaking the orthodontic treatment.

By using a wire brush, gently clean between brackets (under the wires) to get the plaque off. It is very necessary to keep the mouth free from plaque during the orthodontic treatment.

Kindly 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. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Get your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. It can be due to decay, gum infection or sensitivity. Decay can be treated by rct. Gum infection can be treated by scaling and polishing n maintaining proper oral hygiene habits. For sensitivity, use desensitizing paste twice daily.

My teeth are yellow in colour I brush daily more time still I did not get white.

BDS
Dentist,
Yellowness of teeth is in not always due to the external deposition of tartar or stains. If your teeth are pale from within the tooth they probably need a process called bleaching, for your teeth to get white. However over brushing is going to damage your teeth in the form of attrition so don't do more than twice daily. Consult a dentist for bleaching.

I have a swollen gum above the wisdom tooth, its very painful, applied gum care lotion, can you suggest some antibiotic.

Dentist, Bangalore
I have a swollen gum above the wisdom tooth, its very painful, applied gum care lotion, can you suggest some antibiotic.
it is called as pericoronitis. . if swelling is not there in jaw or cheek ,treat it by rinsing your mouth with warm salt water. You should also make sure that the gum flap has no food trapped under it. If the pain and inflammation are severe, or if the pericoronitis recurs, oral surgery to have the gum flap or wisdom tooth removed may be necessary.

Doctor I have some communication problem due to uncontrollable saliva generated in my mouth. So others can't hear my words clearly. And I can't speak some words also. How can control saliva?

Dentist, Ghaziabad
Speak slowly. Hold a clove or elaichi in it mouth initially and suckle on a toffee slowly you will be trained to limit is saliva. Also show a dentist to correct the underlying cause of access saliva.

Thanks for your query. The sensitivity in the teeth can be because of decay, abrasion, attrition or receded gums. So we need to confirm the diagnosis later it can be treated accordingly. Till then you can use desensitising tooth paste like sensoform. Take care.

There can be many reasons for bleeding gums. Most important is poor oral hygiene. If that's the case go for scaling. It will solve your problem.

It can either be due to cavities or wearing out of teeth or recession of gums. Consult your dentist and get it treated accordingly. Meanwhile you can start off with anti sensitivity toothpaste.

I suffer from mouth ulcers from years. They appear at least once in a month, that in Big circles. Do not know what is the reason? Stress, change of drinking water, or something else. please help!

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I am told that I am having leukoplakia under the right hand side of my tongue and for the last 2 years 6 months and ulcer is observed near the white patch which has increased a little. I am a smoker. So I like to know that is it cancer and will it be cured automatically if I can quit smoking?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
A biopsy report is required to confirm the diagnosis. Leukoplakia is a precancerous condition. It won't be cured just by quitting. You will require medication to treat it. And surgery to remove it. It's better to quit smoking as it has a direct effect on the healing. You continue with smoking you will get cancer or your present case will worsen.

How can I solve my halitosis problems? Please help me.

Certified Implantologist, Fellow of Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), BDS
Dentist,
How can I solve my halitosis problems? Please help me.
Go for scaling by a dental surgeon and if any tooth is decayed/broken/food getting stucked, get it treated and the problem will sort out but if the reason is not oral then you need to visit a gastroenterologist to sort out any gastric disorder which is again one reason for halitosis thanks.
