For mouthulcers use dologel ct gel. Use brush or tongue cleaner to remove the deposits on your tongue.

Pain does not have any relation with Colgate, it occurs due to pulpal involvement ,due to caries or periodontal pathology. U need oral examination.

Take out only when most tooth structure has broken. If I go by your symptoms I can save with a filling.

Toothpastes which contain flouride help in keeping tooth decay at bay and also harden the tooth enamel to maintain the health of the teeth.

Hello syed aman, If you are having pain in your wisdom tooth, you may need to get it extracted. As far as wisdom tooth is concerned it is of no use to us , it does not help us in chewing food. If it is creating problem it can be removed.

I am 46 years old having problem gum bleeding, tongue swelling and neck stiffness. Please advise.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Get your heart checked up for coronary ischemia, by angiography. Very early angina pain gets projected there. If it is normal, then treatment of neuralgia is justifiable.

The black material that you are seeing is called as tartar or calculus in medical terminology. It is always advisable to get a thorough cleaning of the teeth done at least once a year so that this kind of material does not accumulate between your gums and teeth. There is no toothpaste or a tooth powder that will be able to remove this material as it gets adhered to the mechanical irregularities of your teeth. Please see a dentist or preferably a gum specialist to get it removed.

Hi, Mr. Lybrate-user eating of chewing gums is not harmful to teeth. You have not given your reason for eating chewing gum.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.
