Hi lybrate-user, a mouth ulcer is a painful sore inside the mouth, on the tongue, soft palate (the back portion of the roof of your mouth), or inside the cheeks. Sores in your mouth are round, white, or grey in color, with a red edge or border. The condition is usually becomes okay within 7 days. But if it persists beyond that, or if multiple ulcers keep re-appearing, medical advice must be taken. In severe mouth ulcer attacks, you may also experience fever and physical sluggishness. Taking vitamin b12 supplements along with a suitable gel for pain is the best remedy. Take care.

Black gums are due to excessive keratin pigments which are harmless. Can be reversed by laser treatment. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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 staining is due to oil and turmeric content of food. You cant avoid it but you can minimize it by regular rinsing after meals. Also you can start a mouthwash and an effective toothpaste for faster results.

As far her molars (milk teeth) are concerned. Ideally they fall at the age of 11-13 years. Followed by eruption of permanent. They play important role in guiding eruption of permanent teeth apart from chewing. I would suggest to take the x rays of her decayed tooth and depending on the status of infection. Filling or a root canal is advisable. Early loss of milk tooth affects chewing ability of child and also leads to delayed eruption of permanent teeth.

a filling is done in the tooth when there is a damage to the tooth by means of caries (decay) or physical damage. Drilling is done to remove the decayed portion of your tooth and a filling is done to restore the same. The entire procedure should not affect your jaw placement or positioning in any way.
