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

Ask Free Question
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.

Its best to brush twice daily. But if you can't than take care of your teeth more. Forcefully gargle with water after you eat or drink anything. Limit your food intake to 4-5 times a day only.

I have pain in my teeth from last 2 days suffering from sensitivity also. Please advise.

May be your gums got inflamed due to plaque, calculus or any injury. If plaque or calculus is there you need to go for scaling and need to improve your oral prophylaxis. Consult dentist.

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.

Hi, there are various reasons for bleeding gums like poor oral hygiene, vitamin deficiency, physical injury to gums, hormonal changes, medications etc. You have to visit a dentist for professional cleaning and check-up to know the exact cause and solution of your problem.

my daughter is 3 months old. from last day she is crying a lot n refusing from feeding also

Ask Free Question
Hi ,Tooth usually erupt at 6-8 months. Babies are irritable and place everything in the mouth. Its quite rare for a tooth to erupt at 3 months. So, it would be better to first rule out the other possibilities. Does your baby usually start crying from evening and after a feed? If so, its mostly infantile colic/ evening colic. Try burping your baby after the feed. you can also try making your baby lie on her tummy for sometime. If it doesn't subside, pls consult a pediatrician. Another possibility is that of middle ear infection. Babies usually get it after an episode of cold. Consult a pediatrician for the same.

Gingivitis and Its Causes and Symptoms

Gingivitis is a disorder, which is characterized by inflammation, swelling and irritation in the gums. Usually, the symptoms of this disorder are mild, so you might not pay much heed to them. However, if left untreated, this condition can result in other serious disorders, such as teeth loss and periodontitis. The primary cause of gingivitis is an improper oral hygiene.

The symptoms of gingivitis are:

Red gums that bleed easily
Swelling in the gums
Tender gums that are receding
You may have bad breath
You may bleed from your gums during brushing and flossing

Causes: The most common cause of this disorder is bad oral hygiene, which facilitates the formation of plaque on your teeth. If the foods you eat contain excess sugar, the bacteria in your mouth may interact with them to produce acid (plaque) if you don't manage to maintain good oral habits. If not removed, the plaque can turn into tartar; plaque can be difficult to get rid of as tartar.

Treatment: The treatment for gingivitis usually begins with an initial evaluation and a professional cleaning to get rid of the tartar. You should use proper brushing and flossing techniques to prevent the recurrence of plaque. You should also follow up with the dentist on a regular basis for check-ups.

Scaling is the procedure by which the plaque from the teeth is removed. If the sources of problems are misaligned teeth and poorly fitted dentures, then these need to be fixed. There are certain home remedies for gingivitis such as:

Use toothbrush that has soft bristles
Visit a dentist for regular oral check- ups, it is very essential for the upkeep of sound oral health
Regular flossing can help
Use a non-alcoholic mouthwash which can help in removal of cavities and plaque to a certain extent, though not majorly
Use fluoride based toothpaste to brush your teeth at least twice a day
Clean your teeth regularly, avoid eating foods laden with sugar and eat plenty of vegetables

Teeth pain can be due to decay or fractured teeth, gum infection or sensitivity. Get your teeth x-rayed n go for needful treatment. For decay, you might require rct n cap or removal n replacement by implants or bridge. For gum infection, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. For sensitivity, use desensitizing toothpaste twice daily.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Hi This can happen due to vitamin deficiencies, especially such as vitamin c and b12. It is recommended that you take capsule becosule z once daily for 4 weeks. This may show improvement in your symptoms.

Brushing with salt will not whiten teeth. It will cut the gums and rub away the outer layer of the tooth because it is so abrasive. Your teeth may look whiter, but they will be damaged and are likely to need repair.

Tongue blister/wound continue after grinding the sharp edges and taking bcomplex with zinc tab and hexigel cream still no relief. Any test to be done or any prob in future.
