As you all agreed with my last tip. The next one is equally important for your children's dental health and more importantly it has a lot to do with esthetics and your children's appearance.

I am 31 years old and my teeth very hard pain when I have cold drink & ice cream, what should I do.?

M.D.S.
Dentist, Mumbai
Hi if you get a sharp pain when you have cold drinks or ice, you would probably have hypersensitive teeth. I cannot give a definitive diagnosis without actually taking a look at your teeth, but I suggest you start using sensodyne medicated toothpaste. Brush with this and a soft toothpaste, and let the paste remain on the teeth for about a minute after brushing. Also, use lukewarm water for brushing and gargling. If this does not work you need to go to a dentist at once, as you may be having a cavity.

Unfortunately tooth decay cannot be treated by natural means. You need to consult a dentist for getting decayed tooth filled. Only thing you can do t prevent further decay of tooth by natural means like drinking more and more of water, chewing sugar free gums. Brushing your teeth and using anti cavity mouthwashes.

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.

Canker sore is a kind of mouth ulcer or an open and painful sore. It is the most common and prominent type of mouth ulcer, which usually affect lips, inner cheeks or tongue. This a yellow or white spot surrounded by reddish sore. Canker sore can be either complex or simple. The common type of canker sore affects people between 10 to 20.

Canker sores can cause difficulties in swallowing and chewing. Most of the canker sores need no treatment; they can heal on their own. There are many ways by which you can prevent canker sores, those may include:

2. Avoiding citrus foods like - lemon, orange, acidic vegetables and spicy fried foods
3. Avoiding problems through gum chewing
4. Brushing in a slow manner with soft-bristle tooth-brush

However, a canker sore heals on its own, without any treatment. Taking care of your oral health on a regular basis would rescue you from having canker sores. If you keep your mouth clean it would help you fight bacteria. Sometimes pain can become severe, and you might need some medications to cure your canker sores.

5. You can gargle with salt and warm water
6. Orabase can also be used to create numbness

Sometimes canker sores can pop up for stress. If stress is the reason for your canker sore then some stress reduction methods like meditation, deep breathing and calming technique will help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Well exercises can only help you reduce your tongue thrusting habit but when the damage like proclination of teeth has been already done then doing exercises alone will not be of much help but yes there are certain exercises such as the spot salivate squeeze and swallow exercise which can be easily trained and done.
