I have heard lot of people saying that, i brush everyday, don't eat chocolates, don't smoke or eat tobacco but still i have cavities and other dental diseases. Why so?
I would like to make you all understand that for dental cavities to occur, three factors have to work at a time. First, the micro-organisms that you have in your mouth, secondly, the food that you eat and thirdly the safe environment that bacteria get by hiding in between and around your teeth. You cannot eliminate your teeth, bacteria and stop eating food. But you can surely avoid these three factors to work at a time. Using a mouthwash daily, it will kill the bacteria and neutralize its acidic contents. Don't let food stick on your teeth, so rinse properly after every meal. Use a dental floss daily, it will clean the spaces around your teeth.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of OSMF .Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw.

Can dental problems cause pain in temples? I have somewhat sharp ache in my right temple a little above temple exactly a few inches above my ear and I am having some dental problems for some time like cavities feelings some sensitivity and sometimes throbbing pain too. So can they be related. Dental problems and temple pain in any way?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Dental Health Tip

Post-Graduate Certificate in Endodontics
Dentist, Cuttack
Dental Health Tip

Have fruits and salads more in your diet. They allow you to chew more that exercises your mouth and your teeth and gums remain in healthy condition.

Doctor I have developed a soft lump at the end of the teeth on the lower jaw it will be there for a day or two and disappears and returns after few days your valuable suggestion please.

BDS
Dentist, Mohali
X ray of concerned tooth is very important to find out the exact cause. If its decayed then rct and crown may be the possible solution or if its just due to food lodgement in gums then scaling (cleaning) and proper oral hygiene maintenance methods and proper brushing technique may be of great help.

Hi lybrate-user. First of all as a home remedy you can use luke warm saline rinses 3 to 4 times a day. Use a benzocaine gel and apply it over the affected side gums so tha you could eat. Lastly the reason for oain during erruption can be a lack of space in your jaw baone for the erruoting tooth. So I wud advice you to visit your dentist for a clinical examinal and have a radiograph of the affected tooh so that he could give you a more clear insight of the problem. At most you wuld have to get it extracted bt it is the last resort. So dnt worry. Pls avoid pain killers for the same until the oain is unbearable. Regards.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Hai sir every day I clean my teeth Buy in my mouth bleed is come sir what happen.
The bleeding gums are due to accumulation of food debris, which is a result of inadequate maintenance of oral hygiene. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Hope that helps.

Probably they need professional cleaning an polishing then you can maintain it afterwards. You might be brushing teeth thrice but technique may be wrong. If the yellowish layer is formed because of fluorides. Cleaning will not help. You need to get tooth colored veneers or laminates. As the name suggests the affected teeth are prepared and tooth colored materials are placed directly or indirectly.
