Sir I have pain in my mouth regureller, when I do tooth brush in morning. What should I do?
- 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. - Have your dentures aligned as needed. - 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. You may consult me in person.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You are aware that the teeth has stains from the chewing tobacco and therefore the first step to bring back the color is quitting smoking and chewing tobacco. Teeth whitening treatment is available with every dentist and you should consult a dentist for the treatment. Take care,

Hi, there are various reasons for bleeding gums like poor oral hygiene, vitamin deficiency, physical injury to gums, hormonal changes, medications etc. You have to visit dentist for professional cleaning and check-up to know the exact cause and solution of your problem. Regards

I am looking for implantation for my right lower jaw, which is situated next wisdom tooths.Drs said it is not possible due to less space in gum and do not have muscle (but without doing X-ray).They took moulded on my both jaws. Also know the expense. Previously I had bridge, which had to extract due to infection in gum.

BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
There is nothing impossible in dentistry provided the treatment should be properly planned, if there is no space in gum than we can go for ridge augumentation or placing bone grafting material and the implant can be placed by using mesh and when implant gets osteointegrated in 6 to 8 weeks the mesh is removed and tooth is placed

Hello doctor, my mother is 40 years old. She is suffered from severe toothache for nearly 2 weeks. She went to hospital and that dentist gave just tablets. She followed that tablets regularly but it is not cured. What should I do now?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Tablets is just for the symptom relief and not the treatment for your cause. When pain is there, genarally treatment is not done as patient will not be co operative and anaesthesia may not also work. So Dr. Will prescribe the medicines and will ask you to visit back for treatment. Please do visit back your dentist for the proper treatment.

Oil pulling is best method. Do it in the morning empty stomach only one time and if you want to do it for twice then take sesam oil inthe morning and almond oil in night at night before sleep.

Sir, my problem is mouth ulcers. I want to know whether it is due to excessive use of pain killers that I have taken during spinal injury?

ENT Specialist, Visakhapatnam
Might be. Might be not. But mouth ulcers are seen in people undergoing stress. If you have stopped eating vegetables and fruits regularly, then it may add to the problem. Eat lot of amla, guava, lemon, leafy vegetables, badam, cashew n other dry fruits. Maybe even try some vitamin syrup. Your ulcers will slowly resolve with you stress dear brother. God bless you get well soon.

Tip to keep the teeth whiter

Tip to keep the teeth whiter

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

Diabetes and Dental Care

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
Diabetes and Dental Care

If you have diabetes, make sure you take care of your mouth. People with diabetes are at risk for mouth infections, especially periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease can damage the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place and may lead to painful chewing problems. 

The good news is you can keep your teeth and gums healthy. By controlling your blood glucose, brushing and flossing every day, and visiting a dentist regularly, you can help prevent serious problems in your mouth

Tongue Cleaning is Important
Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

My 3.5 year old son having trouble with his molars, when we consulted some dentist he suggest to remove all the molar except one since decay is deep. Can we do something to save these teeth. If molar would be removed how will eat and chew for next 10 years and spacing issue for the permanent teeth.

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist, Jamnagar
You are right . Please consult other dentist and get a second opinion. Deciduous molar falls at the age of 12 so it's not advisable to extract it at such a small age. Please consult any pedodontist or endodontist.
