If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

For immediate but temperory relief you can take over the counter medicine for pain. It is important to see a dentist to get the root cause of pain diagnosed and treated.

You can get your teeth replaced. Many options are available depending on the condition of your teeth and the support. Dental implants, crown and bridge or dentures may be advised accordingly. Cost also depends on the condition, etc.

A number of cosmetic fillers are available nowadays which give very good results. You can easily go for them. However if the gaps are too large veneers might also be used to give aesthetic results.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth.

Treat the infection with appropriate antibiotics. You can also take pain relievers such as aspirin paracetamol or ibuprofen. If the pain and inflammation are severe, or if the pericoronitis recurs, oral surgery to have the gum flap or wisdom tooth removed may be necessary.

gum disease can be prevented

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
gum disease can be prevented
Prevention starts with good dental care habits. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once a day. Flossing reaches the places the toothbrush can’t, about one-third of the tooth surface. Practice good overall health habits. Eating a well balanced diet and quitting smoking improves your overall health and your oral health. A professional cleaning done in the dental office is the only effective way to remove the hardened tarter that leads to gum disease. Also one of the things your dentist looks for during an examination is any sign of gum disease.

Dear lybrate-user you need to first treat the problem and make efforts to prevent it further from comming back again. You most probably need a good scaling and polishing from a dentist and have regular followup with the dentist atleast once in a six months.

During orthodontic treatment, suffering from pain and soreness in the mouth is quite common. To lessen the degree of it, the patient can gargle with  8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. It will surely dull the pain and provide some relief.

When I eat some hot or cold I feel vibrate on my teeth what can I do to get rid of this?

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS

Hi, teeth have a protective layer called enamel with age the enamel wears off and become thin which causes to become teeth sensitive to cold and hot. You need to get a professional check up done to know the exact cause and solution of your problem.

I am 25 years old guy, I get mouth ulcers frequently. Thought it heals in 3 weeks but they do not give a gap to occur. I used to have amla (for vit-c) and vit b tablet regularly, I don't smoke, I didn't have a bite, and they sometimes occur on roof of mouth or on the teeth gums. How to prevent it from occurring.

From your above mentioned symptoms it sounds like you have a problem of excessive salivation. It can be caused by many factors like vitamin deficiency, gastric problems, excessive starch intake, mouth ulcers, oral infections, certain medications, certain high metals in body and may be due to inability of clearance. Inability of clearing a saliva itself has may cause tonsil infections or underlying systemic disease. Brushing and using mouthwashes can help to some extent but permanent relief will be after treating the cause. So its better to consult a dentist or physician for proper treatment.

That's true your dentist told correct they are milk tooth so not to worry they get removed but if no pain you wait for its own getting out but if pain than get them removed. At time there is delayed eruption and at time the milk tooth don't get removed and permanent teeth start erupting so no need to worry.

Hello. You can add a pinch of baking soda in water and rinse with it. This will help to heal your ulcers. You need to visit a physician and get your Vitamin B levels checked. Take supplements for it if required.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.
