Hi, while spitting I could see some blood in that. I used to smoke before. But I stopped smoking before 2 years. While smoking I got twice. After stopping, 1 year I don't have any problems. But in the past 6 months I got it twice. I always don't have my breakfast. I used to have lots of cool drinks ice creams.

Smoking causes periodontal probs. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. Adopt proper brushing techniques n brush twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips following brushing. Use a mouthwash n maintain oral hygiene.

I have done biopsy of white patch in my mouth. Report says lichenoid dysplasia with invasion. What is the meaning.

BDS
Dentist, Patiala
Means first step toward cancer. But not cancer. If you stop your ill habits like smoking and other things that you might be placing in your mouth. Then you can revert back to good health. Seriously do warm sline rinses and brush twice and take physician advise as well.

I have completely avoid spicy food from 4 month but nothing improve. Pls let me know what should I do and what is exactly this problem called?

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with T. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. You may consult me in person. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. If sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.

I clean my tongue every time I brush (1-2 times a day). A white sediment forms within half a day making me uncomfortable as it could lead to bad breath. Please advice on how to proceed. It has been there for almost 5 months now.

You should go for deep scaling and cleaning your teeth by dentist. I think you may suffer from pyorriea .so go for deep scaling.

What could be done to remove the yellowish of teeth, though I used to brushing two times a day.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Replacement may not b the best and it's difficult to comprehend what you mean by five crooked teeth but I suggest you consult a orthodontist if required take braces at your age you should try to preserve them rather than to think of loosing or replacing them.

The third molar would be causing the problem. Clinical examination is advised to confirm the damage. Treatment can then be planned whether to save or remove the tooth.

My son is 14 years old and his teeth turn yellow. What could be the possible reason?

Sir tooth stains are due to the oil and turmeric content of the food. You cannot prevent staining but you can minimize it by regular rinsing after meals.

Massaging your gums daily with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth will increase the blood activation and will keep your gums healthy and safe.

Age 43, front upper two teeth are high and big. So i am not freely smile. What do i do?

BDS
Dentist,
You can get orthodontic treatment to get them aligned properly. If you don't have time or are uncomfortable wearing braces then you may even go for crowns/ veneers with or without root canal depending on the severity of the problem.

I am 36 yrs female, sensitivity especially on the back side of teeth to cold, is it advisable to use sensodyne and for how long. I guess sensodyne is symptomatic relief, does it repair enamel? are herbal toothpaste better than chemical based? kindly suggest.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Sensitivity is directly related to teeth wear away.. That is cervical abrasion( caused by faulty tooth brushing technique), attrition( teething or night grinding habit) or by erosion( caused by intake of aerated drinks).. These can be treated by either fillings or night guard appliance depending on the exact cause.. If left untreated then ends up with RCTs with crown, which is not necessary.. As u knw, tooth paste will just relives the symptoms but not the cause.. So plz do visit the dentist to know the exact cause and accordingly the treatment plan..
