Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Braces usually donot causes headache. Check with the eye specialist.

Dentist,
Usually mouth ulcer in old age will come due to lack of nutrients particularly vitamins, either in the diet or her body is not able to take from the food. Or due to stress or lack of sleep. Keep her happy ultimately she will have good sleep and reduced stress, ask her to eat properly so that she get all the nutrients. If not improving consult a physician, ulcer may be due to gastric problem.

Mere tounge me kuch dino se chota chota red red chale jaisa hua hai please btaye ye kaise thik hoga?

Dentist, Chennai
MOUTH ULCERS Nutritional deficiency, excessive stress & debilitating disease can cause ulcer. Exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet. Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations Avoid irritating substances, such as… oTobacco oHot, spicy foods oAlcoholic beverages oMouthwashes that contain alcohol oProducts high in acid, such as citrus fruits and juices Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with Multivitamin cap, for five days in the morning after meals & antiseptic ointment or gel on the area of ulcer until then. Mouth sores are common and rarely cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, please consult your dentist.

My brother used to consume oral steroids for some time to build body. Now though he has stopped taking it, he had lost lot of weight and suffering from dental problem again and again. Please suggest some remedy to over come this and reduce the effect of steroids (tablet).

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Abrupt stopping of steroids will lead to withdrawal symptoms. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. 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.

Tips for Proper Brushing

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Ernakulam
Tips for Proper Brushing

Some easy steps to do to help your teeth keep clean:

  1. When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line.
  2. Both the gum line and the tooth surface should be in contact with the bristles.
  3. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up-and-down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding.
  4. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums, place the bristles at a 45-degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up-and-down motion.
  5. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria which might cause badbreath.

Try to brush at least twice a day to prevent acid buildup from the breakdown of food by bacteria. However, if your work or activities prevent you from doing this, thoroughly rinse your mouth with  water after eating to minimize the amount of food that would serve as substrate for the bacteria.

Permanent molars come in around age 6. Thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth can prevent decay in the pits and fissures. sealants can significantly reduce caries. these days mothers come & get sealants on their kids teeth to protect them. sealent is just like lamination to protect your teeth . get it done now .

Hello Dr. Recently 2 months back I cleaned my teeth because of plaque corners f my teeth my dentist used some tool to clean up that but gaps are formed between the front teeth n below teeth as well. I asked at that tme itself there's gap between my teeth. But Dr. Said it come to normal. But still the same problem. Pls prescribed me how to get back my gums tight again and those gaps get reduce. And I don't want to again go to dentist and disturb my teeth. Which makes my smile more ugly Thank u. Hope you answer me soon.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Usually more calculus (deposits) will affect your gums. So scaling ie the must to remove those calculus. After scaling, most patients will experience those gaps. Gaps are due the removal of the calculus which was previously filled by calculus. Gaps will close by itself once your gums heal. If not so, you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure.

7 years back I hurt my front tooth. 3 years back I dropped my mobile phone on the gums of the same tooth. Slowly the tooth color changed. One month back pain started in the root of the same tooth. I've taken an x-ray, the abscess appear to be spreading to the root of next tooth. Can this be treated without disturbing the shape of my tooth from outside?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
In such a case , Root canal treatment is the only option.Please do it as soon as possible before the infection spreads. After RCT or root canal treatment the tooth will become weka and may break. So it is necessary to reduce the size of the tooth and place a cap on top of it. So the shape of the tooth will have to be altered , but you can use a cap which resembles the natural tooth as much as possible. The only other option will be removing the tooth completely. So at least you can save some of the natural tooth structure by doing an RCT.

Hi Am 19 years old when I wash my mouth mornings small amount of blood is coming from my mouth.

A.C.C.I - Accredited and Certified Course in Implantology, MDS - Pediatric & Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Jammu
Dear , the fact that blood is coming out on washing one's mouth is inidicative of inflammation in the gums. Inflammation in the gums is generally due to tartar/ calculus deposits or food remaining stuck there. So, it is important for us to have the same checked by a good dental surgeon and follow up with the recommended dental treatment.

I am a 60 yr. Old woman. I have to get my wisdom tooth from the left upper jaw removed. Will there be any side effects after tooth extraction. Is an oral surgeon, better than a dentist for the processor tooth extraction? Pl. Advise.

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist, Mangalore
If the teeth is erupted completely its simple to extract, so a dentist is more than enough, and no complication at all. But should be careful if you are diabetic or any other medical problems.

This is called halitosis. Use chlorhexidine mouth washes before and after every meal for one month. Get a dental evaluation for treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis.

I am suffering from burning tongue problem for around 7 years. Usually it is not painful. But very rarely it is like 'I have taken boiled water's. But it will be OK after one or two days. Took medicine for some time. But it was not helpful to cure the same. Is anxiety is the cause of burning tongue? I so have high BP too for the last three years.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bundi
Pl keep your anxiousness and BP under control. Intestinal cleansers every week should be done by specific herbal powders mixed with yavkshar. Irimedadi Tel application is best over tongue. Lot of yeast should be included in food as well as fiber's. Pl consult for details.
