If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Chewing sugar-free gum after a meal brushes your teeth

Chew sugar-free gum after a meal when you can?t brush This action actually helps remove food debris and stimulates saliva flow Replace processed foods with more fruits, nuts and fresh vegetables to reduce the amount of decay-causing, refined sugar in your diet Stop smoking ? it not only causes major diseases but stains teeth, causes bad breath and can lead to gum disease and even oral cancer Sip soda through a straw to help reduce the acid attack on your teeth Change manual toothbrushes every 2-3 months ?when those bristles appear splayed they simply don?t clean as well and can even damage your gums .

Smell from the mouth may be due to conditions present in the mouth and from stomach. Conditions in the mouth are poor oral hygiene i. E presence of plaque and tartar, poor salivary flow, or may be due to some gum infections. Problems from stomach may be due gastritis. Dehydration is also a common cause. Drinking adequate water may also relieve this. Kindly consult your dentist for further clarifications and wish a confident smile.

Sensodyne will not cure the problem. Such cavities need to be filled by the dentist. Otherwise you will end up losing the tooth.

Hello as per your query permanent teeth are off white in colour making white coloured teeth a boon which are genetically inherited from the parents as such. Best way to clean teeth is to follow correct brushing technique twice daily along with flossing. In case you still require bright teeth then you can get bleaching done. But still the orignal colour of your teeth will return back after 9 to 12 months.

You are having loose teeth and they are yellow in color. Kindly visit dental surgeon for checkup. Use hydrogen per oxide for gargles. Best way is cleaning and polishing of teeth and maintenance of oral hygiene. Use colgate tooth paste and listerin mouth.

Wait and watch for a few days for the pain to come down and after that get a cap done over the tooth. If the pain doesn't subside, you have to get the procedure repeated.

Is It Time for Braces?

Is It Time for Braces?
This is the most worrying question for parents.
By age 12 or 13, most kids will have lost all of their baby teeth and will be having a full set of adult teeth. Around this time, some parents will start to notice that their preteen’s smile isn’t looking so straight anymore. If your child’s smile is starting to appear a bit crowded or crooked, it might be time for you to seek out a orthodontist for braces. Orthodontic problems—or problems dealing with the alignment of the teeth and shape of the jaw—are common in preteens. In fact, almost half of preteens need braces or some other kind of orthodontic treatment. If you’re concerned about your child’s smile, ask your dentist today.
When should you seek orthodontic treatment for your kids? The answer is as soon as possible. As kids enter their late teen years, jaw growth slows and the bones holding the teeth in place begin to harden and set. Once in adulthood, the jaw stops growing altogether. Adults can successfully shape their smile with orthodontic treatment, but they may have to use a retainer for the rest of their life. Many experts feel that the earlier orthodontic treatment can begin, the better the outcome. Before braces, however, your child may need to wait until all 28 of their adult teeth have grown in. And sometimes orthodontic problems don’t even appear until later into the teen years. Just keep an eye on those teeth and see an orthodontist as soon as you start to think there could be a problem.
In some cases, if parents see that at a age earlier than 11 years, there is too much misalignment of teeth, as they are erupting, it is best to ask your dentist if some intervention is needed to stop a problem from worsening.

No uprooting the natural teeth is not a good option, primary aim should be to save the natural teeth, an intra oral x ray will give an idea regarding the treatment required. Teeth can be saved with a relative good prognosis.
