Dentist,

It depends on type of pain you suffer. If its very mild then filling may suffice. If it pains a lot and you have to take painkillers for relief then its treatment is nothing other than rct (root canal treatment) and crown (capping).

Bad Breath

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Bad Breath
Call it bad breath or halitosis, it’s an unpleasant condition that’s cause for embarrassment. If you’re concerned about bad breath, see your dentist. Bad breath can be caused by a number of sources, your dentist can help identify the cause and determine the best treatment.

What causes bad breath?

Food. What you eat affects the air you exhale, like garlic or onions. If you don't brush daily, particles of food can remain in the mouth, collecting bacteria, which can cause bad breath. Dieters may develop unpleasant breath from infrequent eating.

Gum disease. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth can also be one of the warning signs of gum disease; which is caused by plaque.

Dry mouth. This occurs when the flow of saliva decreases and can be caused by various medications, salivary gland problems or continuously breathing through the mouth.If you suffer from dry mouth, your dentist may prescribe anartificial saliva, or suggest using sugarless candy or increase your fluid intake.

Smoking and tobacco. In addition to staining teeth and being bad for overall health, tobacco can add to bad breath. Tobacco users are at greater risk for developing oral cancer. If you use tobacco, ask your dentist for tips on kicking the habit.

Medical conditions. Some diseases have symptoms related to bad breath. Sinus or lung infections, bronchitis, diabetes, and some liver or kidney diseases may be associated with bad breath.

If you’re concerned about what’s causing your bad breath, make an appointment to see your dentist. Regular checkups allow your dentist to detect any problems such as gum disease or dry mouth. Bad breath may be the sign of a medical disorder. If your dentist determines that your mouth is healthy, you may be referred to your physician.

Maintaining good oral hygiene, eliminating gum disease and scheduling regular professional cleanings are essential to reducing bad breath. Brush twice a day and clean between your teeth. Clean your tongue, too. If you wear dentures, be sure to remove them at night and clean them thoroughly before replacing them the next morning.

It’s important to note that mouthwash will only mask the odour temporarily. Mouthwashes are generally cosmetic and do not have a long-lasting effect on bad breath. If you must constantly use a breath freshener to hide unpleasant mouth odour, see your dentist.

Halitosis is due to systemic or local reasons. If you have constipation or acidity or diabetese or if you have gas trouble or if you have infected cavity or if you have pyorhea. Gum disease brushing is not sufficient get athorough checkup done for proper treatment.

Dear, turning yellow teeth into white use hydrogen per oxide for gargles. Use colgate total paste and listerin mouthwash twice a day. Do rinse your mouth with listerine mouth wash.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning or surgical removal procedures for the mucosa above the tooth or the tooth itself. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

Do you consume gutkha, supari, paan etc? smoking, alcohol? have you noted a recent, associated restriction in mouth opening? if you answer yes to some of these questions, you might have early stages of oral submucous fibrosis. Please quit any such habits and see an oral & maxillofacial surgeon for evaluation. Your symptoms could also suggest one of a variety of mucosal autoimmune diseases. In any case, a thorough evaluation is necessary for diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Is there any easy remedy for dark colored gums?

Is there any easy remedy for dark colored gums?
The color of normal gingiva /gums is pink which changes in color due to underlying blood vessels. Therefore there is no problem with dark gums, the can be due to smoking also. As long as gums are healthy and no other problem you can be happy just clean your teeth regularly and massage your gums daily.

No home remedy is the alternative for the scaling and root planing. So better to visit the dentist and get proper scaling and root planing. Medicines. And warm saline rinses. I repeat go for scaling and root planing. Your gums will bleed too much during scaling but do not panic and much your gums bleed better results you get afterwards. Soon after scaling you will have healthy gums and no bleeding within a week. Use thermokind f tooth paste after scaling.
