I am male 75, Recently a week back I have noticed that the stainless steel wire attached to my upper denture missing I doubt whether I might have swallowed the small steel wire during sleep, or it might have fallen while cleaning the dentures during brushing. I have not noticed any pain in my stomach even after a week now. Suggest me what to do?

No need to worry. You should not sleep wearing your denture. Now onwards remove your dentures and keep it in bowl of water before sleeping. And when you go for cleaning of denture, please keep a towel beneath it so that you can locate any broken or missing part of your denture. As of the missing wire part, usually it happens during cleaning of denture. If you feel that you have accidently swallowed then you can consult a hysician. Get a check up done including chest x-ray and other investigations directed by your physician. Hope it will help.

Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, tmj open & closed mouth, mri) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Avoid yawning. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. You may consult me in person. 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. There are some simple measures that can help tmj problems, such as a change to a soft diet, jaw muscle exercises in exceptional cases a specialist dentist, known as a maxillo-facial surgeon, may be required to perform surgery on the tmj.

Research have proved that gastric (stomach) problems also cause bad breath, so get your gums cleaned by a dentist nearby and have good food habits and visit a physician for gastric problems.

I am suffering from osmf because I was taking gutkha and occasional cigarettes for 8 years now I left everything for good from 4th July 2015. But I get blood in my saliva sometimes if I talk too much for the whole day in my school and private tuitions I am taking colostrum capsules. Dentist and oncologist said not a concern because my oral health is superb. What is the problem?

Dear lybrate user, good to know that you've quit the habit. Add a pich of salt to a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your mouth three times daily. Brush gently twice daily with a soft toothbrush to maintain good oral hygiene. Get yourself monitored regularly. Avoid eating heavily fried, extremely hot and spicy food. Consume lots of fluids, water and fruits. Establish a healthy routine by taking out time to exercise and try to stay stress-free. Too much workload is harmful.

At the age of 26, I am getting a new teeth which is a big pain as of now. How to get rid out of this pain as I can't tolerate it anymore. I am 26 yrs old female

MDS
Dentist, Kota
Its surprising to know tooth erupting at age of 26! still you can take either ibuprofen 400mg three times a day or tramadol 50mg three times a day (assuming that you are not having any other medical conditions - pregnancy etc.) later show it to your dentist. I would like to see the picture of your tooth which is eruption at this age.

Get scaling done. Brush your teeth twice a day. Use mouthwash twice a day. Use dental floss twice a day. Do warm saline gargles 3-4 times a day. Scrap your tongue.

it has nothing to do with snoring... tooth pain is due to infection in the oral tissue......... Toothache is mainly due to carious lesion or periodontal problem....first we have to identify the cause then we can start the treatment part..for pain relief ,you can take an analgesic....also start warm saline gargles.... if the problem persist, you need to consult a dentist for more specific diagnosis and treatment would be tailored accordingly

Hi, there are many causes of mouth ulcers like stress, trauma, constipation, vitamin deficiency and many more. Riboflavin will not help much unless the ulcers are due to vitamin deficiency. You can apply mucopain gel over the ulcers four to five times a day for relief from burning and pain. Visit an oral medicine specialist for complete treatment. Regards.
