Some white spots in my mouth after left wisdom teeth what to do.

BDS
Dentist,
Wisdom teeth usually emerge between the ages of 18 and 25. However, for a large proportion of people, there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate these new teeth, and without adequate space, the wisdom teeth cannot fully erupt. A partially erupted wisdom tooth often causes problems because it is surrounded by a flap of gum that cannot easily be cleaned by brushing your teeth. The whitening can be sign of inflammation. Have warm water gargles and get it checked with the dentist.

Homeopathy and Tooth Decay

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathy and Tooth Decay

Excessive intake of starch and sugar oriented foods lead to tooth decay and this dental condition is often associated with other serious symptoms like dental pain, gum swelling and others. Deficiency of a few minerals, especially magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and vitamin-D also causes this kind of dental condition.

If you want to get instant relief from unwanted symptoms, then you should rely on medicines, but normal medicines will not do any good; rather you should take only homeopathic medicines. Innumerable homeopathic medicines have been currently invented by the experienced researchers that can efficiently deal with all kinds of dental troubles or issues.

Main homeopathic medicines used for treating tooth decay: Your smile can be now well preserved and protected in the long run by using different kinds of useful homeopathic medicines. You should use these medicines only after they have been prescribed by the homeopathic practitioner. Some of the most prominent options in this regard are as follows:

  1. Belladonna: If you are having a severe toothache due to tooth decay and are looking for an instant solution, then nothing can be a better option than this medicine. Apart from removing the dental inflammation, it is also very much helpful in maintaining dental pulp condition. On the other hand, nervous excitability can also be efficiently controlled by taking Belladonna.
  2. Chamomilla: This is also quite a popular homeopathic medicine, which is prescribed by maximum homeopathic experts for dealing with different kinds of acute dental conditions. Dental sensitiveness can be completely reduced, and necessary warmth can be catered by this medicine so that your ears do not get hurt due to dental pain. This is very much effective, especially during emergency dental conditions when the pains are simply getting unbearable.
  3. Mercurius: Pulsating toothaches due to broken or decayed tooth can be now controlled only by this medicine. Sometimes, doctors prescribe many other medicines along with this drug in order to handle the dental troubles in a proper manner. Sometimes, painful ulcerations can also be prevented by using the concerned medicine. Now, night-time dental emergencies can be well-treated with this remedy.
  4. Arnica: This is one of the commonest recedes and this homeopathic medicine is now available in almost every house so that any kind of dental troubles, especially severe pains due to tooth decay can be prevented. In fact, this is the safest option of all.

Overall, one can say that homeopathy provides the best remedy to toothaches that too without any side effects.

He is breathing from his mouth in night and morning .and very much noise occurs when h breath. When I am asking the reason he said that his nose is closed just bcz cold .but in hav notice that no cold in the daytime. What is the reason.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hello lybrate-user, breathing through mouth when at rest is not normal. Although there are various reasons for the same, the most common cause is obstruction in the airway. The most common cause of obstruction in airway is upper respiratory tract infection in other words cough & cold. If mouth breathing persists even without cold then there may be other causes for obstruction. I will advise you to visit an ENT specialist who after doing a thorough check up will give you the right advice. Hope this helps, all the best.

I am 22 years old man bleeding off the teeth before 1 month? what should I do?

MDS - Pediatric Dentistry , Certificate Course in Conscious Sedation, BDS
Dentist,
I am 22 years old man bleeding off the teeth before 1 month? what should I do?
Thank you for your question. Bleeding on brushing is an indication that you have gum inflammation. It is a condition called gingivitis. Periodic dental check up every 6 months, cleaning of gums and teeth (known as scaling and root planing or oral prophylaxis) will help keep your gums healthy and strong. Kindly see a specialist as soon as possible. Bleeding may also be indicative of a medical condition elsewhere in the body.

Salivary glands shrink with age producing less saliva,a natural antimicrobial that helps prevent decay,hence chew a sugarfree gum regularly to stimulate production of saliva.

What You Must Know Before You Get ROOT CANAL Treatment

What you must know before you get root canal treatment

Root canal treatment also known as endodontics is performed to treat and heal an infected or badly damaged tooth rather than removing it. When your teeth start decaying, you do not feel any pain for a very long time. However, gradually the darkening of your tooth color may become prominent which could mean that the tooth nerve is dying or has died. That's the time you will need root canal treatment which involves cleaning of the canals inside the roots of your tooth.

Why you may need the root canal treatment

Teeth consist of a soft core known as dental pulp. This pulp goes beyond the crown and the noticeable part of your tooth to the root tip inside your jawbone. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. So when your tooth is damaged or has a severe cavity, bacteria can easily make their way through the pulp. Symptoms and signs of a sore tooth include a hole in your tooth, a swelling around the regions of your face and neck, gum swelling, tooth pain or a toothache and temperature sensitivity. If it is left untreated, the decaying material and bacteria can cause a tooth abscess or severe infection, resulting in a bone loss, pulp death and even loss of the tooth itself. The root canal treatment is the best way to save the damaged teeth and escaping the painful process of extraction.

What does the treatment involve?

The purpose of the treatment is to free your root canal from every possible infection. The root is then cleaned and filled to avoid any further infection.

Root canal treatment is a skilled procedure which is time-consuming and usually requires from 2-3 visits to your dentist.

In the initial stage, the infected pulp is isolated to drain out abscesses (if any), followed by the cleaning of your root canal which is then prepared for a temporary filling.

Your tooth is then left to settle down.

In the next visit, your tooth is checked to see whether it’s free from all forms of infection so that it can be permanently filled.

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 heat in stomach. 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.
