Cold sensitivity can be due to dental decay or abrasion of the teeth. You can use a desensitizing paste for temporary relief. Please consult a dentist and get it diagnosed and then proceed with the appropriate treatment.

I have problem in my smiling teeth, I got a cap on it few year ago. And my lower teeth have a gap. I want real and permanent solution. I am 25 years old now.

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
We can correct this with smile designing. The gaps in your lower teeth can either be closed with a procedure called bonding or by doing ceramic veneers. If the cap that you have does not look good, you can go for an all-ceramic cap. And if any tooth is missing, you can opt for dental implants in that area.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

She may has gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Scaling will help in this regard. Ask her to try this remedy at home.mix few drops of peppermint in lukewarm water and rinse three times a day after each meal. Use alcohol free mouthwash after each meal.

•A change in taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

Hello sir, my teeth became yellowish. I brush twice a day still no change. As I remember from my childhood it's like that only. How can I make it white. And my teeth are not in an order ( line). Thank you.

To whiten your teeth you can go in for bleaching which will be temporary whiteness for few months. For permanent whiteness you can go for veneers which will cost you more than bleaching. If your teeth are yellow from birth it might be birth defect also. In that case bleaching may not help. You need to confirm if it's birth defect or just stains. A good experienced dentist will help you with that. It will be better if you get your teeth in line first & then go for whitening.

All About Tongue Problems

All About Tongue Problems

Tongue is an important organ of your body. Without the tongue you would not have been able to enjoy one of the most pleasurable experiences of life: tasting food! Imagine how life would be without the sudden euphoria you experience when you taste something delicious. Not only do your taste buds help you to taste food, but it also rejects harmful substances like toxins and sends your brain a signal to avoid consuming it. The tongue also helps in digestion of food. It makes the food pass easily from your mouth and throat to your stomach. Apart from tasting and sending signals to your brain, the tongue helps you to talk. It facilitates speech. It alters the air in your mouth which is produced by the vocal cords. That is how you make a wide range of sounds.

Tongue Problems:

  1. Burning sensation on the tongue: This normally occurs in women who have recently attained menopause. Mood swings are also a characteristic feature of menopause. Burning sensation is rare but a symptom of post menopause. Burning sensations can also occur due to cigarette smoking.

  2. Change in the tongue color: Many times having a pink tongue means deficiency in iron, folic acid and vitamin B-12. This can also be because of an allergy to gluten. A white tongue can occur due to smoking or drinking alcohol.

  3. Tongue pain: It can occur due to biting, injury or infection. Canker pains are also common. It can be caused by aging, diabetes, tumors and infection.

  4. Tongue swelling: It is caused by down-syndrome, tongue cancer, leukemia, strep throat and anemia.

  5. Oral thrush: It is a yeast infection. It makes the surface of the tongue and the mouth look like cottage cheese. People suffering from asthma or diabetes can also get oral thrush.

Remedies for tongue problem:

  1. Don't consume spicy and hot food.

  2. If you have a canker sore, try to drink only cold beverages and eat soft foods.

  3. Rinse your mouth regularly with a mixture of warm water and salt or you can also make a mixture of warm water and baking soda.

  4. Apply ice to soothe your tongue.

If the tongue pain persists then it is better to book an appointment with an ENT specialist or with an otolaryngologist.

If your toothache is such that you have to take painkillers or tooth pain at night or too sensitive to cold starts paining after cold application then your tooth will require an rct and crown (cap). Smoking will not cause toothache but smoking is otherwise bad for your oral cavity, lungs and overall health.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Hi lybrate-user. I can understand your problem. But you need to understand that your bad breath has not developed in one day so it will not go in a day treatment. You hav to take lillte extra care for the cleanliness of your mouth. For the initial treatment, you need to go for scaling procedure. After your mouth is cleaned properly, proper maintenance is required. These r few points you need to absolutely follow for dental care:- 1. Rinse your mouth properly every time after you take food. 2. Do not allow any food particles to accumulate in between your teeth. To prevent this, use dental floss. 3. Brush your teeth twice daily (morning and before night sleep) with proper brushing technique. 4. Use mouthwash. 5. If you take cigarettes or tobacco, you hav to quit it. Every 6 months you should go for a dental check up to review your problem. Thank you.

Lubricate your gums, whiten your teeth and floss with a simple home remedy. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. Get that extra shine and improve the health of your teeth with this easy technique called oil pulling.

What is the best way to replace almost all damaged tooth for my mother aged 55.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
What is the best way to replace almost all damaged tooth for my mother aged 55.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need replacement with removable or fixed (bridges & implants) type of teeth. Implants are not recommended in uncontrolled diabetes. Cost varies with dentist. 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.

Dear Doctor, My mother, aged 50 years is experiencing tooth ache sporadically. Up on consultation, we realized that the lower wisdom tooth grew inclined and impacting the adjacent tooth. It even started causing infection a little in the gums surrounding that tooth. Do you recommend tooth extraction surgery? If yes, will there be any complications post surgery?(she is diagnosed with diabetes a few weeks ago) Where to get the surgery done and what prerequisite care need to be taken to ensure no complications afterwards.

Dear lybrate-user, if the impacted tooth has affected the adjacent teeth and gums, its essential to get rid of it to avoid long term infections to which diabetics are already prone. So go ahead with the treatment. A good oral surgeon would handle the case gently and there won't be any dire complications except for some moderate swelling due to anesthesia and some post-op pain for which you would be prescribed pain killers and antibiotics. Because she is not a diabetic since a very long time so it won't be a problem. Take your medications properly, follow the dentist's instructions and get it extracted.

Even after proper brushing, if you are having the problem of bad breath, you might be suffering from vitamin c deficiency. Vitamin c deficiency leads to spongy and bleeding gums. Even though the bleeding is not visible, there could be a micro-vascular bleeding which is not seen with naked eyes. There is a secondary bacterial infection in the gums which leads to the problem of bad breath. You should take citrus fruits like oranges, lemon, etc. It is good if you take an orange a day for at least 15 days and let me know the result. Hope it helps.
