Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

An xray needs to be taken to determine if the nerve is involved, if it is then a rootcanal treatment is absolutely necessary.

I have an oral problem I can not open my mouth from last 20 years widely I used to take gutkas but I have been not taken since 20 years. I visited many dentist they gave me several types of medical treatment but no one can help me out of this. I am 45 year age what should I do. Is there any chance to recover hence I am now hopeless what do you suggest me SIR.

Hello lybrate user. I think you have taken injections for your problem and if not just go for it first. Treatment also depends upon severity that is true if the opening is so less that you can not even open 1 cm then surgery is only the option.

I am chewing tobacco for more than 15years now these days I am feeling difficulties during eating something my mouth doesn't open fully .

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
I think you might be developing a condition called Oral Submucous Fibrosis (OSMF). This is considered a precursor stage to frank Oral Cancer. Please quit your tobacco as well as alcohol (if present) habits, immediately and completely. Do not use supaari or eat paan either. Avoid spicy foods. As for the reduced mouth opening, do start active and aggressive physiotherapy which would need to be continued lifelong. For additional treatment, please see an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon.

Hi lybrate-user issue teeth are yellow because of not taking care of your teeth then you must go to the periodontist and clean your teeth otherwise if your teeth are yellow by birth then you can go for bleaching and the other technique can be the laminates.

During brushing it's bleeding from gums is it any gum problem?
Hi you have gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque or tarter deposition. Get it removed by scaling. And take care of your oral hygiene. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

I have bad smell in mouth. so, what to do?

M.D.S, B.D.S.
Dentist,
Bad smell have a number of reason. Several internal medical conditions also can cause your breath to go downhill fast. They include diabetes, liver disease, respiratory tract infections, and chronic bronchitis. You'll want to see your doctor to rule out things like acid reflux, postnasal drip, and other causes of chronic dry mouth. But studies show that about 80% of bad breath comes from an oral source. For instance, cavities or gum disease can lead to bad breath, as can tonsils that have trapped food particles; cracked fillings, and less-than-clean dentures.

Few things to do on daily basis - Daily exercise

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Few things to do on daily basis - Daily exercise
You brush your teeth every day; exercise is equally important for your daily routine. Turn off the tv or computer, and get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.

To work your heart, it's got to be aerobic exercise. You've got lots of options: walking, jogging, biking, rowing machine, elliptical machine, swimming. But don't feel like you have to be an athlete. Walking is great exercise. Get 10 minutes here and there during the day. It all counts.

Start with something simple, like parking in the far corner of the parking lot -- so you get those extra steps to the door. Take the stairs one or two flights instead of the elevator.

If you take public transportation, get off one stop early and walk the rest. Get out at lunch to walk. Or walk with your significant other or your spouse after work. You'll get a bonus relaxation and stress reduction.

Visit or search for ssohm on internet for more tips and information on various diseases.

I am 21 years old, I had a lot of teeth ache, can any 1 help me to sort out this problem permanently ?

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Hi . You might have a decayed tooth that is causing you the pain. You should visit a dentist. He/she might take a xray of the tooth to see how deep the decay is. If it has reached the nerve(pulp) of the tooth you will need a root canal treatment followed by a cap on the tooth. If it will be decayed extensively you might have get that tooth removed.

You should complete the processes of r. C. T. Otherwise it will get infection in root area and will cause more pain and discomfort. Painkillers are only for temporary relief. You can take tab. Ketorol -dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or tab. Ibuprofen after meal.
