Filling your stomach full before the RCT is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

•A change in taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

Crooked teeth are correctable with orthodontic treatment, which usually consists of using dental braces to move your teeth back into the right position. There are several types of dental braces available today, with different colors and styles to match your personal tastes. Many adults are now choosing clear braces that blend in with the color of their teeth, helping to hide the fact that they're wearing dental braces at all! Dental braces aren't the only orthodontic treatment option. For mild forms of malocclusions, an orthodontic retainer may be all you need. Invisalign® has also become a popular way to correct crooked teeth -- Invisalign consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth without the use of wires or brackets. For teeth that are crooked in the front, you may choose veneers. Unlike dental braces, porcelain veneers completely cover crooked teeth and are also ideal for correcting stained or chipped teeth.

What happened I don't know, I am getting bad smell from my mouth after brushing. It is since five years, I am suffering with this and I am unable to speak others also due to this. Kindly suggest right solution to avoid this problem.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Avoid sticky sweets, such as toffees, soft candies and pastries. These types of foods stick to your teeth and feed decay-causing bacteria. When you do eat sweets, eat them after a meal. When candies are eaten alone, they are more likely to remain stuck between your teeth.

Ulcers occurred due to sharp edged tooth or some overhanging margin of a filling or crown. Mouth ulcer has so many causes. The most common associated cause is vit b12 deficiency, local trauma or apthous stomatitis. Local trauma includes rubbing on sharp edges, fillings, false teeth, dentures, orthodontic treatment eating rough foods like potato chips can cause ulcers thermal burns can happen after eating very hot foods or beverages in the mouth. Holding an strong concentrated medicine next to mucosa can cause ulcer a person undergoing radiotherapy develops ulcer recurrent apthous stomatitis is also associated with ulcers. Underlying cause is hematinic deficiency (folate, vitaminb, iron), stopping smoking, stress, mensturation, trauma, food allergies or hpersenstivity to sodiul lauryl sulphate found in toothpaste. Many infections are also associated with ulcers like chicken pox, herpetic stomatitis, anug, syphilis, tb many drugs can cause ulcers like alendronate (a bisphosphonate drug for osteoporosis, cytotoxic drugs, nsaids (pain killers), nicorandil for angina and propylthiouracil for hyperthyroidism. I have tried to elaborate as many causes as possible. The purpose is that" ulcer is not a disease but a symptom of may other disease, please try to find your problem, then the treatment can be started after that. We need to find the right cause before we can start over the treatment. For pain relief, you can apply a topical oral ulcer gel containing choline salicylate and lignocaine hcl. Aslo start warm saline rinses if the problem persist, you need to consult a dentist for more specific diagnosis and treatment would be tailored accordingly.
