My mom is 60 above and suffering from ulcer in mouth for many months now. She is unable to eat properly. Have already changed couple of doctors. Please help and suggest the reasons of these ulcers and treatment. Please doctor.

Dentist, Gorakhpur
Thease type of ulcers (aphthous ulcers) are stubborn and changing doctors will seldom help to cure it. It will take time so patience is most important thing to follow. Since you have already shown her to few, let her visit an oral medicine specialist. Have my words, once doctor will diagnose the real problem, it will be cured. The ultimate treatment is to go for laser ablation but not before consulting from specialists.

Sir I am 24 year old I can not open my mouth fully because I also chewing gutkha please let me what I do or solution please sir.

BDS
Dentist, Gwalior
This is due to a condition called as trismus or lock jaw. It occurs due to your habit of tobacco chewing which results in formation of fibrous bands in mouth and thus leads to reduced mouth opening. I would suggest you to quit your habit as soon as possible and visit a dentist for your check up. He/she will provide you medicines and will guide you for some exercise to increase your mouth opening.

Dear lybrate-user your problem is discoloration of teeth. You can always maintain sparkling teeth by cleaning them properly. Brush your teeth morning /evening before going to sleep. Use colgate whitening paste and do listerine mouthwash. See dental surgeon for cleaning and polishing and filling if required and you can have good teeth.

Dental Implants or Dentures - What is Best Suitable for You?

Dentist, Faridabad
Dental Implants or Dentures - What is Best Suitable for You?

Tooth loss occurs due to various reasons decay and infection, fracture, accidents, gum disease, to name a few. Tooth loss has a negative impact on various aspects facial appearance, chewing efficiency, and overall nutrition. The attempts to restore the lost tooth have led to various advancements from removable dentures to cast partial dentures to fixed dentures to implants.

Listed below are features (covering advantages and disadvantages) of both dentures (fixed and removable) and implants. While dentures can be complete or partial, implants are more often partial, of course can be used to replace multiple teeth. A detailed discussion with your dentist along with oral and radiographic examination will help in making a decision.

Removable Dentures:

Advantages:

  1. Replaces tooth but more for cosmetic reasons than function.

  2. Poor chewing efficiency.

  3. Useful when multiple teeth are to be replaced, especially when no adjacent teeth are available for support.

  4. If good bone support is not available, retention is an issue.

  5. Not very healthy for the underlying jaw bone and adjacent gums.

  6. Requires daily and routine maintenance.

Fixed Denture(s):

Also called as bridges, as the artificial replaced tooth is a bridge between two natural teeth.

  1. Requires removal of sound tooth structure as abutment (support). This is the major disadvantage with fixed dentures, which promoted further work from the dentists, ending up with discovery of implants.

  2. Promotes tooth decay in the adjacent teeth.

  3. Good support, so retention is not an issue.

  4. Not as harmful to the underlying jaw bone as removable denture.

  5. Requires maintenance but not like the removable denture.

  6. Expensive compared to removable dentures.

  7. Replacing a bridge also means the adjacent healthy teeth are affected.

Implants:

  1. Very good replacement alternative, replaces not just the crown structure but also the root structure.

  2. An excellent option when the jaw bones and gums are extremely in good condition.

  3. Almost natural restoration of both chewing efficiency and facial appearance, the person can eat almost anything.

  4. Not as harmful on the gums like dentures.

  5. Does not cause bone loss like dentures.

  6. Can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, where multiple implants are placed and a bridge is placed over them.

  7. The titanium screws that are used fuse with the jaw bone over a period of time.

  8. The titanium is also biocompatible, thereby reducing chances of allergy.

  9. Implants are expensive, and many insurance companies may not cover them.

  10. If properly fabricated and maintained well, then it can last for decades.

The decision to go for a denture or for an implant should be decided based on a detailed evaluation of overall health and if required radiographic examination. Both dentures and implants have advantages and disadvantages, and the dentist will help make the right choice. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Suggesting you to get consultation and clinical examination done by oral pathologist/ oral physician to rule out pain of dental origin. Facial pain can be due to anything from an infection to nerve damage in the face. Common causes for facial pain include: an oral infection, an ulcer, or open sore, an abscess, such as a collection of pus under the surface tissue in the mouth, a skin abscess, which is a collection of pus under the skin, a facial injury, a toothache, sinusitis.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Chances of getting your teeth completely white are less. But you will improve the shades of teeth. 1. Quit the habit 2. Get your teeth professionally cleaned 3. Bleaching can be done (depending upon your requirement)
