Aged 54. Diabetes patient. Three teeth fell down up and down side. I cant take hot or cold drinks.Often i affected gum swelling either right or left side. Using herbal tooth paste and soft brush only. Recently one doctor given prescription as: Tab ZERODOL sp ; T. METROGYL 400gm ; cap TRESMOX LB 500 mg & T. CYRA-D all for three days. But on that day i can have no problems. But again its giving problems. I only take chicken monthly once. Please give permanent solutions. I belongs to lower middle class family.

Diabetics are more prone to gum diseases if oral hygiene is not properly taken care of. The swelling you are talking about is the manifestation of the gum disease. So its better that you visit a dentist for cleaning of your teeth & then the dentist can assess the exact condition of your teeth & can provide the appropriate treatment. But make it a point to brush your teeth & use a mouthwash twice daily & get your teeth cleaned once in 6 months.

Hi lybrate-user, a mouth ulcer is a painful sore inside the mouth, on the tongue, soft palate (the back portion of the roof of your mouth), or inside the cheeks. Sores in your mouth are round, white, or grey in color, with a red edge or border. The condition is usually becomes okay within 7 days. But if it persists beyond that, or if multiple ulcers keep re-appearing, medical advice must be taken. In severe mouth ulcer attacks, you may also experience fever and physical sluggishness. Taking vitamin b12 supplements along with a suitable gel for pain is the best remedy. Take care.

Do you keep your mouth covered while playing sports? If no, please start using a full-face helmet or a mouthguard so that any unnecessary injury can be prevented.

Dear lybrate-user. You must be having trouble with wisdom tooth. It might not have erupted completely. Do warm saline gargle thrice daily for 3 days. Take soft semisolid diet take pain killer keep yourself hydrated do post your x-ray.

Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. If there is lack of space for the tooth to erupt then you will have to get it removed / extracted. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. You can also do warm saline rinses. It will help in relieving pain.

Suffering from bad breath, getting very stinky smell from mouth for the last six months when im talking to people. Consulted dentist but they told orally there is no problem. Notable to figure out the exact problem.

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
There is infection of gums so you have to get scaling done from dentist.Mostly scaling is sufficient but if problem persists than xray is advised. And it could be due to lung diseases also. Keep your tongue clean too.

I am going in for silver filling. How can it affect my oral health further?

PDCR, BDS
Dentist,
Mr. aditya silver filling was the best of old days...but now with changing concepts u should prefer tooth coloured restorations... Some disadvantages of silver filling are: 1. It contains mercury which is poison for our body. 2. It bonds to tooth mechanically that means v have to give a proper shape to the cavity for silver filling which leads to more loss of your healthy tooth structure.. 3. As silver alloy is metal, and our oral cavity contains saliva so it can lead to rusting in filling leading to deterioration of filling margin which furthur leads to caries below filling, known as secondary caries. 4. Discoloration of tooth Now a days there are very gud materials available for filling u shud go with glass ionomer cement or composite filling.

Get your X ray done for both the broken teeth.Depending on that if filling has to be done then get filling done,or if root canal treatment has to be done then get it done following capping which will solve your problem.

I have mouth pain for many days it always been with me.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
I have mouth pain for many days it always been with me.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

BDS
Dentist, Vadodara
Bad breath from the mouth can be of various reasons. Like accumulation of plaque and tartar, decay in teeth, dry mouth, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated beverages and alcoholic drinks, sore throat, bad digestion. For beginning, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use a mouthwash after brushing twice daily. Increase intake of water. Avoid oilly n spicy foods.

I fill sensitivity in my end teeth upper portion. Pl. Suggest the possibility and their treatment.
Hello lybrate-user, Sensitivity is a problem where there three layers of a tooth namely enamel, dentin and pulp. Sensitivity is due to enamel damage so to get your enamel repaired use colgate enamel pro relief this will have a good result. If further sensitivity persists after the usage of the paste then report to your nereby dentist. THANKYOU
