One year back I was suffering from jaw problem. When I contacted a doctor he prescribed me to take pacetane 2 half in the morning and half in the afternoon. Now there is no problem. Still I am taking the tablet. Is there any side effect from theat tablet. Can I stop taking the tablet ?

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Tablets are only for temporary relief. You should stop taking the tablet & then wait & watch to see if the pain starts again. If there is no pain, then no need for tablets & in case if there is pain, then you should visit a dentist for a permanent solution.

I clean my mouth 4 times a day still I have bad breath. Why and what is the reason?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
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. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Hey I am ujjwal and I am 20 years old, and having problem with my my teeth's. Firstly whenever I try open any hard thing like cold drinks bottle cap from my mouth, I am facing that my teeth is shattering. Secondly, recently I have scaling and filling in my mouth, even after that I am having bad breath in mouth, got start pain every time after eating anything. What should I do now?

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Mohali
Teeth should not be used for opening cold drink caps kind of things, its not the function of teeth, such habits put undue pressure on teeth these are not good habits. Use opener from now onwards. And for bad breath as you have already undergone scaling and polishing follow proper brushing techniqe and healthy oral hygiene practice. Visit your nearest dentist for demo of proper brushing technique and other oral hygiene habits. Even then if problem persists make sure you are not suffering from any other underlying disease since few underlying disease can also cause bad breath.

Activities like cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging should not be performed by making use of our teeth. It can result in broken or chipped teeth. Our teeth should only be used for chewing food.

Medication won't be effective, you need to visit a dentist and have to place cement on your damaged enamel.

I have an old filling in one of my teeth which hurts sometimes only while chewing food. Is it something to be concerned about?

DGOI, Aesthetic , M.Sc - Master of Oral Implantology (MOI), MDS - Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopaedics, BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Hello the question you posted is genuine concern. Old fillings can sometimes be cracked and have a leakage which goes unnoticed and cud lead to sensitive tooth to occasional pain while biting. At times there cud also be a crack in the offended tooth. Please pay a visit to your dentist at the earliest. Your dentist wud have a clinical or if needed a check with an xray and wud suggest treatment depending on the severity. Mr/ Ms. P please don't be worried, but definately its a concern and do not delay to visit your dentist

Recently I consulted a dentist n he advised me to choose between orthodentic treatment and cosmetic procedure. So, I am a little confused. Which is better and why? if I go for cosmetic procedure for midline diastema closure will it cause any harm in future?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Hi orthodontic treatment is time consuming it will take around 1yr to 1.5yrs for completion of the treatment whereas cosmetic treatment is not time consuming it will take around 15 days to 25 days maximum. If you are having only midline diastema problem then you can go for cosmetic treatment. Cosmetic procedure wont be harmful but you will have dental caps on your teeth so only thing you cant bite any thing hard from that teeth.Thank you

I have pain in my teeth. If I eat anything cold item lile ice cream or drink cold water it is very painful. I concern with dentist he said I am suffering with sensitivity. Please refer the medicine or treatment of this. I am from Chandigarh.

BDS
Dentist, Kolar
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelF or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto ur tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get ur teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of ur problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.

Sir I am getting a teeth pain exactly lower jaw it's get continue to ear pain kindly suggest.

MDS Prosthodontics, MDS Endodontist
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Your pulp (vital tissue of tooth) is infected that's why you have pain. And this tooth is most probably in lower jaw and the way it's paining called reffered pain, you need to visit dentist for priper diagnosis and treatment. Most probably you have to undergo root canal treatment. Please visit dentist instead of home remedies for permanent solution. Take care.

When I brush my teeth, sometimes blood come out with the spittle. But it comes from a particular place every time. What should I do?

BDS, CDE Endo-Prostho, CDE - Cast Partial & Complete Dentures
Dentist, Pune
Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. Get an x-ray done. If there is a cavity get it filled. If there is infection to the root of tooth get it treated and then place a crown over it. Bleeding gums could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily. Night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.
