Bleeding Gums?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Chennai
Bleeding Gums?
The best way to treat gum disease is to practice good oral hygiene, although additional dental and medical treatments are sometimes necessary.

Good oral hygiene involves:-
1. Brushing your teeth for two to three minutes twice a day (in the morning and at night), preferably with an electric toothbrush
2. Using toothpaste that contains fluoride (fluoride is a natural mineral that helps protect against tooth decay)
3. Flossing your teeth regularly (preferably daily)
4. Not smoking
5. Regularly visiting your dentist (at least once every one to two years, but more frequently if necessary)

You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

I was suffered from periodontal problem and that was cured by deep cleaning and grafting a month back. Now there is big gap between my teeth after the stitch removed from the gum line.

Hi Aravinth, The receded gums will not grow after periodontal surgery. if it is esthetically bothering you, you have to undergo a gingival uplifting procedure. If it cannot be surgically corrected you can go for multiple crowns to cover the gaps. kindly consult a periodontist in ur area he will help you.

I am a 21 year old male and having mouth ulcer form 4 days and I cant eat anything. I am using glycerine but its of no use. Please suggest me some good medicines.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals & hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer until then. 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.

I am 64 yrs old 3 months ago I had blood coming out while brushing my teeth and was asked to get my teeth cleaned and prescribed qudrajel. It only gave temp relief and after a month it was re-precribed. But it has not helped and I continue to get blood while brushing. What to do?

There are so many causes of bleeding gums - - brushing too hard - a vitamin deficiency - taking blood thinners or other medications - bleeding or clotting disorders - mouth sores - other medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, leukemia or scurvy. -few advice to stop bleeding gums-- 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 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.

Hello, the pain could be because of eruption of your wisdom tooth. Salt water rinses will give temporary relief from pain. So visit the dentist, get an x-ray done and if required get it removed.

Hi lybrate-user, It seems you have a hypertrophied muscle, this is basically due to over activity of muscle. Probably you might b a night grinder (involuntary grinding of teeth at sleep). U must visit a dentist and get a night guard made. It will definitely help you out.

I have been suffering this below problem from last year. My cheeks are paining when I am watching tv working on my laptop watching movies. I don' t know why. Please suggest me doctor. I went to dental specialist he cleaned my teeth and send me. I scanned my cheeks it leaves me nothing.

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
While watching tv or working on the laptop are your teeth in constant contact knowingly or unknowingly. If yes then it is not the cheeks that are paining but your tmj which is the joint holding both the jaws that pains. Do you also feel sensitivity in your teeth?

Instead of extraction of a painful decayed tooth opt for root canal treatment of the tooth.Every tooth is important to maintain the harmonal balance of the biting forces.With newer technologies, most of the root canal treatment are painless.

hello, you can get your teeth in proper alignment by going for orthodontic (braces) treatment. orthodontic treatment is the safest and most conservative treatment to straighten teeth. you need to consult an orthodontist for the same. you can also go for veneers.

I will suggest you to send pictures of your teeth. Because degree of yellowness has to found out first. And there are different treatment options for how much your teeth yellow. Whether toothpaste or professional cleaning or bleaching is required that can be suggested only after inspection of teeth.
