Wisdom teeth come at age 17 - 21 years of age. You should wait unless until it comes out completely. Till then you can take painkillers only when it pains too much. Keep your oral hygiene good. It will come out of its own in few months. If it bothers you too much then consult your dentist. They will take an x ray of the tooth and suggest you proper treatment.

Sensitive teeth and gums can be difficult to endure on a daily basis, because foods you eat and liquids you drink can cause you pain. By chewing on a guava leaf twice a day, you can relieve gum and tooth sensitivity, bleeding gums or mouth sores.
Not only do guava leaves relieve pain in the mouth, but a guava leaf can be ground up and used as a toothpaste to relieve sensitivity, as well as cure bad breath associated with gingivitis.

I'm having bad breath inspite of brushing my teeth regularly & using the mouthwash. What should I do?
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. Clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner.

Dear lybrate user, it seems that you're talking about your partially erupted wisdom teeth. This is a common problem with them. Please consult your dentist at the earliest possible to check if the teeth are decayed, an xray would be required to check the exact position of the teeth inside the bone. Warm salt water rinses can help in temporarily relieving the pain and swelling but the permanent solution will be extraction.

Gingivitis can be treated but requires maintenance to prevent worsening of the situation. Such cases will be assessed by clinical and radiographic examination. Depending on the bone level, further management is done. Please be aware that gingivitis does not settle in one sitting. You need to see the dentist every six months and undergo procedures as and when required.

Sugar - How It Affects Your Teeth?

Dentist, Hyderabad
Sugar - How It Affects Your Teeth?

Sugar is an all pervasive substance that is found in most food items although specific ones such as candies, colas and sweet delicacies tend to have more of it. While it may taste great on the tongue, it may not be so good for your body as well as your teeth. Teeth are especially affected by sugar as an ingredient in all items of food. Some of the ways it affects your dental health are discussed below –

  1. Sugar from colas, sodas and other carbonated beverages: Sugar that gets into your body in the form of carbonated beverages are the worst in terms of the nooks and crannies that it gets into. As it is in liquid form, it can swirl around the toughest corner and deposit sugar there. This will encourage the growth of harmful bacteria, causing a host of problems.

  2. Dissolving tooth enamel: Tooth enamel is the topmost layer of teeth. This is the layer which is visible to the naked eye and is white in color. Foods such as chewy candies can leave a hard lump of sugar lodged in your teeth which the saliva in your mouth will not be able to dissolve away. This will keep producing acids and result in the dissolving of the enamel. Enamel protects the nerves of the teeth and thus will result in extreme pain and even tooth decay.

  3. Encourages the growth of plaque: Plaque is an obstructive and sticky substance that forms on many parts of your body, including the teeth. Plaque is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and these bacteria feed and grow on the sugar from the foods that you eat. These bacteria can cause cavities, gum infections, bad breath, destroy the enamel among causing other dental problems as well.

Some of the other related problems that can be caused by sugar on your dental health are:-

  1. Reduction in the size of your back teeth due to erosion from acids formed from sugar.

  2. Gum infections of various kinds which may end up requiring surgery.

  3. Changes in the bite of a person i.e. the way upper and lower teeth come together.

  4. Sugar may also affect the growth of bacteria in the mouth, which in turn may also cause digestion problems.

  5. Causes bad breath due to buildup of bacteria.

My lips remain chapped always from last 12 years. and my corners of mouth are cracked from both sides that's too from last 12 years. Please suggest me.

BDS, MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Mumbai
You have most like a vitamin deficiency (B group and E) along with a fungal (Candidal) infection. Since your age is showing 90 years I am assuming you either have no teeth or very few teeth which results in something called 'loss of vertical dimension' that is face height decreases and saliva drooling occurs. So you need both dental and medical treatment for this condition. A prosthodontist such as myself can treat your problem well.

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