Hello. Slight injury to alveolar &/ lingual nerve while giving local anaesthesia may leads to numbness and sensation in lower lip and chin. First of all you have to check is there any alteration in taste perception, as there is a long span of suffering. There are many interventions or treatments available, surgical and non‐surgical, that may enhance recovery, including improving sensation, supplements such as multivitamins, antioxidants, renerve plus for a month.

From last one month I am noticing blood from my gums while brushing and irregularly. Can you suggest some cure for it? I would be grateful.

Irregular brushing technique will certainly cause the gums to bleed. Bleeding may also be due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. 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.

Foul smell from mouth. Mouth gets dehydrated inspire of drinking lot of water Less physical exercise age 30 and weight 85 height 5'8" Problem of constipation and gas Pure vegetarian Thanks. so, please answer

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
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.

How to Brush Your Teeth

PGDRH, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
How to Brush Your Teeth
1
Use a good toothbrush. Choose a toothbrush with soft nylon bristles. This must effectively remove plaque and debris from your teeth, without irritating the gums or eroding tooth enamel like hard bristled brushes can do when used with sideways action. The toothbrush should also fit comfortably in your hand, and have a head small enough to easily reach all of your teeth, especially the ones at the back. If you have difficulty fitting the toothbrush into your mouth, it is probably too big.[3]
Electric toothbrushes are a great choice if you are a lazy brusher and think that the electric toothbrush might encourage you to spend more time on your teeth. However, you can do just as good of a job with a manual toothbrush -- it's all in the technique.
You should definitely avoid toothbrushes with" natural" bristles made from animal hair as these can harbor bacteria.

2
Replace your toothbrush regularly. The bristles will wear out over time, losing their flexibility and effectiveness. You should get a new one every 3 to 4 months, or as soon as the bristles start to splay out and lose their shape. Visual inspection of the toothbrush is more important than the actual timeline. You can also buy toothbrushes nowadays whose handles will change color when its time to get a new one.
Research has found that thousands of microbes call toothbrush bristles and handles" home" and can cause infections.
Always rinse your brush after using it, and store it upright and uncovered so that it can dry before your next use. Otherwise bacteria will grow.
3
Use a fluoride toothpaste. It not only helps remove plaque, it also helps strengthen tooth enamel.[6] however, it's important to note that fluoride toothpaste is not to be swallowed, as ingesting too much can have serious health consequences. It should not be used for children under the age of 3.
You can get toothpastes to target a wide variety of dental and gum problems, including cavities, tartar, sensitive teeth and gums, gingivitis and stained teeth. Opt for the one that suits your best or ask your dentist or hygienist for advice.
4
Use dental floss. Flossing your teeth is just as important as brushing, as it removes built up plaque, bacteria and food particles that get trapped between the teeth and which soft floppy toothbrush bristles can't reach even when used with up/down natural motion. You should always floss before brushing your teeth so that any food or bacteria that comes loose during flossing doesn't remain in your mouth.
Remember to floss gently. Don't" snap" the floss between the teeth as this can irritate sensitive gums. Ease it down gently, following the curve of each tooth.
If you find dental floss awkward to use or you have braces, look for dental picks instead. These are small wooden or plastic sticks which you can insert between teeth, achieving the same results as flossing if spaces are large enough.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
Please get scaling and polishing done. All d stains may not be removed as some of them penetrates the tooth because of pan masala from a long time . So if needed you can get bleaching done. Then you can maintain ur oral hygiene by brushing twice daily following a proper brushing technique.

There are two types of stains. One is extrinsic n another is intrinsic. Extrinsic stains require cleaning n polishing. Instrinsic stains require bleaching or more invasive procedures. Better you get it assessed by dentist and stop using tobacco. Keep smiling.

The foul smell in your mouth is 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. You should also clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Scaling will also take care of your sensitivity issue. Hope that helps.

TMJ pain can be due to misalignment (malocclusion) of or trauma to the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding (bruxism), poor posture, stress or anxiety, arthritis and other inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders, orthodontic braces, and excessive gum chewing. the treatment will vary depending on your condition. apply ice pack on the outer region. try some relaxation exercise for jaw muscles. meditation has to be done to reduce stress level. take soft diet n avoid chewing gums. consult a maxillofacial surgeon for complete diagnosis n treatment planning .

Hello lybrate-user, the gap between the teeth is also corrected with braces and this is a universal treatment for such cases. Yes, braces treatment is quite costlier but it is a permanent solution. Other treatment is cosmetic treatment consisting of tooth colored filling but is not successful for larger spaces. You better visit a dentist and take the opinion because without seeing it, it's too difficult to advise the exact treatment. Moreover, braces goes for any case.

Dentist,
I have teeth pain so what can I do?
You may have cavty. Get an x-ray done to know about the extent of the cavity. If cavity is superficial filling is the option or if its deep and pulp is exposed then you need to go for rct. Pain can also due to any abcess or gingivitis. It is important to get diagnosed to decide the treatment plan. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.
