Sir, give me reason of hypersalivation and its remedy, kuch din mere mouth me khub sara saliva aya raha hai. Now may ...
Hypersalivation is not a disease but usually a symptom of another underlying condition. These other factors can range from easily treated and common causes to rare diseases. Saliva is a clear liquid produced by the salivary glands in the mouth. It moistens food and aids swallowing. It also contains enzymes that help with digestion. Saliva can help to heal wounds and remove germs from the mouth, as well as prevent dryness and act as a barrier against irritants and toxins. On average, a healthy person produces between 0.75 and 1.5 liters of saliva each day. Saliva production peaks when a person is eating and is at its lowest during sleep. Too much saliva can cause problems with talking and eating, along with chapped lips and skin infections. Hypersalivation and drooling can also cause social anxiety and diminished self-esteem. Hypersalivation can be the result of: excessive saliva production an inability to effectively swallow or clear saliva from the mouth difficulty keeping the mouth closed Causes of excessive saliva production, leading to hypersalivation, include: morning sickness or nausea during pregnancy sinus, throat, or peritonsillar infections poisonous spider bites, reptile venom, and poisonous mushrooms false teeth ulcers, inflammation, or pain in the mouth poor oral hygiene severe infections such as rabies or tuberculosis severe or sudden pain regurgitation of saliva during heartburn jaw fractures or dislocation Difficulty swallowing or clearing saliva from the mouth can be caused by or associated with some underlying conditions, including Down syndrome, autism, ALS, stroke, and Parkinson's disease. If a person also has a sensory dysfunction, they may not always realize that they are drooling. Causes of an inability to keep the mouth closed, which can result in drooling, include poor neuromuscular control of the muscles around the mouth. Cerebral palsy is an example of such a condition. Difficulty keeping saliva in the mouth can also be due to: poor head and lip control a constantly open mouth impaired tactile sensation an enlarged tongue or poor tongue mobility poor teeth alignment nasal blockage Hypersalivation can also result from non-medical conditions, such as seeing, smelling, or tasting food, or even just thinking about food. It can also be caused by chewing gum or by feelings of excitement and anxiety. Symptoms Symptoms of hypersalivation include drooling, spitting, and excessive swallowing. Other related symptoms include: chapped lips softening and damage to the skin around the mouth infection of the skin around the mouth bad breath dehydration speech disturbance pneumonia poor sense of taste Hypersalivation and drooling may also cause psychological complications and social anxiety, as well impact their ability to eat or speak. People who experience hypersalivation are more likely to inhale saliva, food, or fluids into their lungs, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia. This may happen when the gagging and coughing reflexes are impaired. Diagnosis The aim of diagnosing hypersalivation is to pinpoint the underlying cause and then to recommend the best available treatment for each affected person. A diagnosis is important, as some of the potential causes of hypersalivation have serious complications. To diagnose hypersalivation, a doctor may include an examination of the following: the mouth, teeth, and surrounding skin tongue control, swallowing ability, and jaw stability tonsils and nasal airways alertness and emotional state hydration, hunger, and head posture A doctor will usually consider it necessary to assess other criteria, including: existing medical conditions and ongoing medication how and when hypersalivation occurs the amount of extra saliva produced whether or not the problem is constant or intermittent any adverse effects on daily life Once the cause of hypersalivation is established, a doctor may take the following factors into account when recommending a treatment: severity and complications age and mental status whether hypersalivation is chronic or temporary associated neurological conditions the possibility of improvement Treatment and management Dealing with hypersalivation is about treating the underlying condition that is causing it, as well as managing the immediate effects of excess saliva in the mouth. Depending on the cause, the treatment can include certain types of therapies, medications, and home remedies. In extreme cases, surgery may be considered. Therapy: This can include behavioral modification and speech therapy. People experiencing hypersalivation may benefit from help with posture and head control. They can also learn techniques for lip closure, better tongue control, and swallowing. Medication: The aim of medication for hypersalivation is to reduce salvia production. Anticholinergic medication may be used, although it has a range of side effects, including drowsiness, restlessness, irritability, urinary retention, constipation, and flushing. Treatment can also include a beta-blocker or botulinum toxin (Botox). Home remedies: Drinking plenty of water can reduce saliva production. Tooth-brushing and rinsing with mouthwash can also temporarily dry out the mouth. The successful management of hypersalivation and the resulting drooling can improve a person's confidence and self-esteem. Some causes of hypersalivation may clear up over time without treatment. Such causes include pregnancy, anxiety, and minor injuries. Other causes can pose more serious medical challenges. This category includes neurological causes and nerve disorders. If chronic conditions are the cause, treatment may include lifelong management of a person's hypersalivation.

Hello lybrate-user I would suggest you to get Orahelp liquid drops for your mother. Ask her to apply it on her tongue 5 minutes before having her food. That will give her some relief. Also, Please attach a picture of the ulcer if you can it will help other doctors on this site to attain a conclusive diagnosis.

Drinking a cup of tea everyday helps in keeping the gums and teeth healthy as it contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. FOR YELLOW TEETH: Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

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.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Ways in Which Dentures Can Improve a Person's Life?

Ways in Which Dentures Can Improve a Person's Life?

Dentures are prosthetic devices and their purpose is to replace missing teeth. Dentures are basically false teeth, which are supported by the tissues of the oral cavity. Most dentures are removable, while some are permanently fixed. Dentures are widely used by people all over the world, who have missing teeth.

Here are the ways in which dentures can improve a person's life:

  1. Speaking becomes clearer: Missing teeth make it difficult for a person to speak clearly. Using dentures will fix this problem and you will be able to speak clearly and properly as dentures take place of the natural teeth. It takes some time to get adjusted to dentures and many people practice pronunciation of difficult words in front of the mirror after getting dentures fitted in their mouth.
  2. You can eat normally again: Missing teeth cause difficulty in eating and you are unable to eat many of your favorite dishes, which require strong teeth. After getting a denture fitted, you can get back to eating all sorts of foods again and biting or chewing won't be difficult anymore. This too takes some time to adjust and in the beginning, you should eat soft foods by cutting them into small pieces. You should abstain from having chewing gums or hard food initially.
  3. Your self esteem gets improved: Losing teeth makes you look bad and many people feel embarrassed or ashamed because of missing teeth. A denture is a perfect remedy for this. After getting dentures, your teeth will be back and will look and feel natural. There is usually no worry about the dentures falling off or slipping out as they are fitted properly in the gums. You will look good, and the lost confidence will be back.
  4. You will have improved oral health: Missing teeth cause health problems, such as bone loss in the jaw area. To avoid this from happening, dentures should be used. These teeth implants will replace your old teeth, and bone loss will be prevented.
  5. You will appear younger: Missing teeth alter the structure of your face. Wrinkles might appear or the face may seem to look collapsed, then dentures can effectively support the structure of your face and make it appear to be more youthful with added fullness.

Dentures improve the quality of a person's life greatly with missing teeth. They should be taken care of properly, cleaned regularly and you should have regular dentist appointments to ensure a proper fit of the denture. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.
