Sir, I have lot of pain in my tongue which was having cut mark on one side of tongue due to biting. Kindly suggest remidy.
I am a 27 yr old man. I have throat pain, dry tongue & marks at mouth soft palate. What should I do?
Hi, I had no pain but I visited to dentist for cleaning. She found that I have multiple caries and I am just 25. So I got fillings. I have 6 fillings mostly on molar and all are on molar biting surface. I read the prescription it was GIC restoration they cost me 500 per each fillings. I had no issue but I read about GIC and found that it's not strong for stress bearing area. I contacted back to dentist to ask how deep my fillings were and why they used GIC. Firstly the person who did had left the clinic but other Dr. Told me that it's 3M quality GIC and its durable and they did xray but fillings was not visible in xray. I don't know but since from that day I'm having high anxiety of loosing teeth or loosing fillings. It's been month but still my condition is same, can't sleep, not eating much. I request you to please share your experience how long do you think that GIC can stay, the fillings are on the biting surface middle covered with teeth wall. I'm maintaining my oral hygiene doing brushing, flossing and I've also stopped eating any sugary food. Please suggest doctor your answer and suggestion may help me to come out through my anxiety.

Remember the sensation similar to that of a warm liquid flooding your tongue when you smell a deliciously baked chocolate cake? Or a freshly baked brown bread early in the morning? That is your saliva. The salivary glands present in the inner linings of the lips, cheeks and the mouth produce saliva. Saliva protects one from tooth decay, keeps the mouth moist and helps in the digestive process. Any disease that affects the saliva gland comes under the domain of ‘salivary gland disorders’.
There are three salivary glands in humans known as the Submandibular, Parotid and the Sublingual gland. The most common disorder that affects salivary glands is that of ‘blocked salivary glands’. Sialothiasis is a disorder wherein, calcium stones are formed in the salivary glands, which obstruct these glands. Obstruction of the salivary glands leads to an infection called sialadenitis, caused by strep or staph bacteria.
Sjogren’s syndrome is another condition which affects the salivary glands. In this condition, the antibodies in the body target the cells that produce saliva. This occurs mostly in women who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Viral infections are also common; flu virus and mumps are a few examples.
The symptoms of salivary gland disorders are problem specific; for Sialolithiasis, you will feel a painful lump below the tongue, which tends to aggravate when you eat. In case of Sialadenitis, there will be an odorous pus-filled discharge along with a lump beneath the chin. For viral infections, the symptoms will include muscle pain, swelling and fever. Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry eyes and mouth, joint pain, fatigue and tooth decay.
Like the symptoms, the treatments for salivary gland disorders are also problem specific. For salivary gland tumors, surgery is required. If it is a malignant tumor, then radiation therapy will be prescribed which may cause dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia). For bacterial and viral infections, anti-bacterial and anti-viral medications are required for treatment, respectively. It is also important that you take good care of your oral health for an even more effective treatment. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis will help keep salivary gland disorders at bay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT-specialist.
