Hi I have problem in mouth, evry time I find ulcer in my mouth. What should i do for that?

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist,
Hi. Their are many reasons for that, it might be due to excessive spicy food or some sharp tooth irritating your mucosa. Does it happen at same location or location changes. If at same location than it might be due to local factor like sharp tooth or cheek biting, otherwise may be due to some vitamin deficiency like vitamin b deficiency. Sometimes due to normal stomach problems like having worms in stomach might cause it. Take some vitamin b and vitamin c tablets. That wl surely help you out.

Tips to Prepare Your Child For First Dental Visit

Dentist, Hyderabad
Tips to Prepare Your Child For First Dental Visit

For a child, the first visit to the dentist can be panicky. This is because they don't realize what's in store. Children get a better idea about dentists after getting some information about the visit. We, as grown ups, must be set up to answer the inquiries and instruct our children in the most ideal way.

The following are some valuable tips on the best way to set up a child for the first dentist appointment:

  1. Guardians regularly ask when they ought to take their child for the first ever dental visit. The best time to begin taking children for a dental checkup is either when their first tooth pops out, or right around their first birthday. Expert dentists are capable of instantly recognizing any potential issues with the development and advancement of the jaw and delicate palate. Children's teeth are more porous and defenseless to decay than grown-up's teeth; so early mediation is a basic to guarantee those small teeth staying sound. It is also recommended that guardians begin brushing their child's teeth when they start coming out, utilizing a delicate toothbrush and plain water. Brushing should be started as early as possible.
  2. It's never too early to begin acquainting your kids with tooth brushing and knowledge of oral health. The best time to begin is before your kid's first dental visit. Youngsters love to find out about their bodies, and love to grin, touch, and investigate new things. There are many fun ways to impart oral health education to children. The more agreeable they are with their mouth and teeth, the less demanding your youngster's first dental visit will be.
  3. Tooth brushing is an essential piece of our everyday self-care, and it is our habit. A child, after being introduced to a brush and a toothbrush will take a certain time period to make daily brushing a habit. Guardians and the kids can brush their teeth "together". It is essential to note that toothbrushes are apparatuses, not toys, and that infants and babies ought to be firmly directed.
  4. Little children, are extremely insightful and touchy to the states of mind of people around them. Children regularly reflect our conduct. When we are casual and upbeat, children will probably be loose, as well. Children are additionally more casual when they are prepared for or taught something. Invest energy conversing with children about going to the dentist. You can also discuss what the dentist will do, emphatically.
  5. Always choose the most trustworthy dentist who is friendly and knows how to handle a child on his first dentist visit.

A child's first dentist appointment is a special one, and you should prepare him accordingly.

Hi lybrate-user. Sorry to know your suffering sensitive teeth tooth has a layer on the top called enamel which is a protective layer preventing leakage into the layers beneath this. The next layer below this enamel is called dentine, which is a very sensitive layer. So when you say your tooth is sensitive which means that your enamel is probably missing in few areas or thin in few areas exposing the second layer which is a sensitive layer. There are few toothpastes available in the market which combat sensitive teeth. It works for few individuals. However meet your dentist to actually diagnose the problem and then go ahead with treatment. Your dentist might suggest you simple enamel fillings or any other type of treatment which is appropriate depending on the severity of your sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity can also be due to your gums shrinking and making your tooth look longer. Which would need gum treatment to be done. However get your medical records updated and mention to the dentist if you have any gastric regurgitation, which cud be the cause at times. Minimize the intake of carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, squeezing lemon to food, consumption of wine as these are the very few major culprits to dissolve the top layer of the tooth and exposing the second layer thus making your teeth sensitive. Stay away from tobacco related habits which also makes your teeth sensitive try to use soft tooth brushes to prevent unnesasary wearing of the tooth surface. Your dentist would be the right person to customize the plan which suits you the best as every individual is unique. I hope I clarified your query

Hi lybrate-user. Looks like your oral cavity is in bad shape every toothache can be relieved with proper treatment. Gum swelling can be relieved by cleaning which will also make your teeth cleaner and whiter. After the basic treatment you can also go for bleaching and cosmetic treatment to restore your smile.

Sir, I've been eating tobacco from last 7 to 8 years, But from last 18 months I leave that habit of chewing tobacco. But I can't able to open my mouth properly. So, give me some idea what can I do. Please suggest. Thanking you Regards Wasim Akram.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Your condition is called oral submucous fibrosis. Bad thing about it is it is called precancerous lesion. Good part about it is it is curable if and only if you discontinue with your habits. Discontinue consuming tobacco, supari in any form (chewable or smoking). Also avoid red chillies and tomato seeds. You need to see a dentist. He may advice for injections. It will help you open your mouth slightly more and reduce any burning sensation associated with oral submucous fibrosis. Also balloon blowing and opening mouth with gradually increasing ice cream sticks will help (say 5 to begin with and gradually increase to 8 or 9). If your local dentist can't help you with treatment (because many dentist don't do this treatment) I suggest you go to dental college or oral surgeon. Ask if you still have doubts.

Hello lybrate-user, the condition is known as periodontitis. It is caused due to improper oral hygiene which leads to continues deposition of plaque and debris which can not be removed with your daily brushing and leads your gums shift down and down. Consult nearest dentist for scaling. Thank you.
