Salt mixed with pepper can be of great use when a tooth becomes extremely sensitive as both the ingredients have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
Mix equal amounts of pepper and common salt with a few drops of water to form a paste.
Apply the paste directly on the affected tooth and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Do this daily for several days.

What is the causes for bad breath? How can we prevent bad breath?(After brushing twice a day. Then also bad breath coming)

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Treating and preventing bad breath Treatment for bad breath (halitosis) will depend on its cause. Usually, the most effective treatment is improving your dental hygiene. As part of your daily routine, you should: floss between your teeth brush your teeth and gums clean your tongue You may want to consider investing in an electric toothbrush, which can make cleaning easier and more effective. Cleaning your teeth Your dentist will probably recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste. Below are some tips on how to brush your teeth and keep your mouth healthy. You should: use dental floss to clean between your teeth and remove trapped food that could cause tooth decay – brushing on its own only cleans about 60% of the tooth's surface choose a small or medium-sized toothbrush with soft, multi-tufted synthetic bristles replace your toothbrush every three to four months brush your teeth for at least two minutes – you could keep a toothbrush at work or school so you can brush your teeth after lunch brush all areas of your teeth, paying particular attention to where your teeth and gums meet – your dentist or oral hygienist may recommend using a special single-tufted brush for specific problem areas of your mouth use a separate toothbrush or a tongue scraper to lightly brush your tongue – some toothbrushes have a tongue cleaner on the back of the brush head avoid brushing your teeth for 30 minutes after drinking an acidic drink, such as fruit juice, or eating acidic fruit, such as oranges, to help prevent tooth abrasion Your dentist may recommend that you rinse your mouth daily using an antibacterial or anti-odour mouthwash. This shouldn't replace brushing, but can be included as part of your daily routine. Cleaning dentures If you wear dentures, you should take them out at night to give your mouth a chance to rest. Clean your dentures thoroughly before putting them in the next morning: 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 Your dentures should stay clean and fresh if you follow this routine. It will also help prevent the build-up of plaque, which can cause bad breath. Fresh breath tips To help keep your breath fresh, you should: give up smoking 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 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 You should visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure any plaque and calculus – previously known as tartar – 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. Gastrointestinal problems Bad breath can be caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). You may be referred to a gastroenterologist. The treatment recommended will depend on the type of gastrointestinal condition you have. For example, if you have a stomach ulcer, you may need a combination of two or three different antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). This is known as eradication therapy.

Root canal was done on my right 2 molar 2 years back. Now the same is paining and the gums also pains. Please advise treatment.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
U have to visit your dentist and get examined. If required a xray has to be taken to see if the condition of root canal treated teeth is fine or not. If infection is there than a re -rct can be done. Sometime pain can be due to decay in adjacent teeth. So thorough examination and xray is required for correct diagnosis.

Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain and may be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique and maintain your oral hygiene.

Why do we get mouth ulcers regularly? please help me with some of the precautions.

BDS (Gold Medalist)
Dentist, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate user, mouth ulcers could be due to multiple reasons like stress (the most common and important one), vitamin or nutritional deficiency, anemia, eating excess fried food, dehydration etc. Establishing the exact cause in case of frequent or non-healing ulcers is important. Normally, they heal in 7-14 days time. Drinking plenty of fluids and water, eating fruits, salads and vegetables, avoiding oily/fried food, developing a healthy smoke-free, alcohol-free lifestyle and staying stress-free are some of the precautions.

Hello, you need to visit the 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 the tooth, you need to get it treated. Then get a crown placed over it.

For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.

I had root canal on my right wisdom tooth and filling was also done. Now the filling has been removed and at times food gets struck but it is eay to remove it. Is it necessary to get the filling done again or remove the tooth. Also, since riot canal was already done so are their any chances of pain arising un future?

Dear Sir, It seems that the root canal treated wisdom tooth was not covered with a crown (cap) after the root canal completion. Once the filling came off, it made it difficult for you to keep it clean. Kindly visit your dentist and get your tooth checked and better still, get the root canal treated tooth capped for the longevity of your tooth.

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 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.

there are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -Stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -Certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -Sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -Some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Coeliac disease and Crohn's disease. -When you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take 'Becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief..

Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

How scared are you of root canals? what if we tell you. You no longer need to be?
Root canals are easily one of the most dreaded treatments in the world. I have seen patients compare the anxiety they feel before a root canal to things like open heart surgery and labour. The last thing you want to hear on a dental chair is the diagnosis that you need a root canal. The horror stories surrounding this dental treatment range from gruesome to excruciating.

This article is an attempt to dispel the mystery and pain associated with root canals and show you how far we have come from the horrors to the sophistication of the latest technology.

From painful to pleasing

What are root canals really?
In its simplest sense a root canal is a deep filling done by cleaning the infection from the third and innermost layer of the tooth which is made up of nerves and blood vessels.

Our tooth is made up of 3 layers the first 2 are hard and confined layers called enamel and dentin when decay affects these it is very slow to spread and easy to remove and fill within one short session.

The third layer may take 1-3 sessions to clean as the infection may have spread or collected in the supporting tooth structures.

Why are root canals considered painful?

The 3rd layer of our tooth is a nerve chamber containing soft nerves and blood vessels in communication with the rest of our body.

This is the place that communicates pain to our brain and this is why when decay or bacteria hit this soft deeper layer we experience sharp shooting pain.

Top 3 reasons why root canals used to be painful


    Improper or inadequate anesthesia to numb the inflamed nerve
    Mechanical instrumentation to manually pull out the nerve which we now dissolve and clean with automated machines
    Lack of the right medications to use within the tooth.


What happens to root canal infections if left untreated?
If this pain is suppressed with medication and not treated it can lead to an infection spreading within the bone which may later lead to a swelling with pus etc.

If this infection is left within it can eat into the supporting bone and eventually infect or affect the adjacent teeth as well.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

Braces treatment usually creates pain due to the pressure that is put on your teeth. If your braces are toot tight or if the pain is due to any other problem kindly consult your orthodontist for the clinical examination before deciding upon the treatment.

May be there chances of calculous deposition at the cervical area of teeth. Go to your dentist. If needed get cleaned your teeth (i.e. Scaling and polishing) follow proper brushing technique (watch utube videos for brushing technique) and understand from your dentist. Most common causes of bad breath is poor oral hygiene which leads to gum disease.
