Brush twice daily n avoiding sweet won't solve a problem. Make an habit of gargling with water after you eat or drink anything. Avoid sticky n junk foods. Use a mouthwash regularly. Get scaling and polishing done. Regularly visit a dentist at least biannually.

Hi. I have throat pain from last 3 days. I am not able to swallow any thing. please advice me what to do.
If tooth pain is so severe then you need to go for root canal treatment for that tooth. If swallowing is difficult then it can also be due to tonsillitis. All that can be checked once you consult a dentist. Hope you get well soon.

Mouth guard to prevent biting of inner cheek, Bite correction and jaw alignment, chlorhexidine mouthwash to reduce swelling and whiteness as well as pain as well as tea tree oil mouthwashes. Dabbing vanilla extract on the affected site, Rinse your mouth with a mixture of ½ teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a cup of water or cool chamomile tea, Put aspirin on the infected area and if you have any aching pain, try taking ibuprofen.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get an x-ray done for that tooth. If there is a cavity get it filled. Bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

You can’t brush every time you eat. But you sure can drink water or at least rinse your mouth with water every time you do so. Water neutralises the effects of acidic and sugary foods. Rinsing removes food particles left behind on/ between the teeth.

I have got blisters in the mouth. Even after taking medicines it shows no improvement. Please help!

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Dental implants are basically replacing your teeth roots. In dental implants anchors are used which are actually a cylindrical screw like object. This is put in your lower and upper jaw bones through surgery and they work like stable bases for artificially replaced teeth.

Dental implants can be of many types and the types of implants vary on the method of surgery.

Some prominent types of dental implants are:

Endosteal: In this method screws, blades or cylinders are surgically inserted in the jawbone. Every implant can hold one or more artificial teeth.

Subperiosteal: Through this process, artificial teeth are on the top of a jawbone by a metal framework. People who cannot wear artificial dentures and have a short bone height prefer this method.

Dental implants come with many advantages, some of the advantages may include:

Improved Appearance: Surgically implanted teeth feels like your own teeth, at the same time they also look better.

Improved Speech: With badly fitted dentures you have chances to slur or mumble your words but with dental implants, it is easier to speak.

Improved Comforts: Dental implants are very comfortable; you will not find any difference with your own teeth.

Comfortable Eating: As it feels like your own teeth, you find no difficulty whilst chewing, and you can always enjoy your favourite food.

Improved Confidence: After dental implants, you will smile lot more than before and that will happen because of your regained self-esteem.

Durability: Dental implants last many years and if you take good care then it can last for your lifetime. Sometimes people choose dental implants for its durability.

Convenience: Although this process lasts for a very long time, you can replace it or change it anytime you feel like you are having any problem regarding it.

There are also some different processes through which dental implants can be done. It depends on your problems and needs.

Some processes may include:

Replacing one single tooth: if your one tooth is missing then one crown and one implant would be enough.

Replacing many teeth: if you are having problems with several teeth, then a full bridge of dentures can be used.

Replacing all your teeth: if it is needed then all your teeth can be replaced.

Sinus Augmentation: this one is a little difficult process, it helps to develop bones for dental implants. It also develops the quality of your bone.

Dental implants are very successful now. It is durable and good looking. After the implant the artificial teeth feels like your own teeth and it is very easy to handle.

Hi lybrate-user. Sorry to know about your pain. Rightly said by you there is a hole in the area where the tooth was taken out. And food stuffs get stuck there and the pain nags u. Though usually the pain in such cases is not too severe. But a constant nag that your attention gets deflected from your daily routine. Well george nothing to worry about this. As this is the course of healing how the socket heals. Eventually the hole will close by the gums and much later where there is a hole the bone forms. But my freind this takes a while as you know bone and gums don't form so fast. Let the nature take its course. Ofcourse for the pain you can take any pain killers that suits you or the pain killer prescribed by your dentist. Makes sure you keep urself hydrated well and be on a high protien diet. Your dentist must've mentioned you about salt water rinses. Continue doin that as it doesn't let the bacteria grow because of the food stuffs inadvertently getting on to the area. Give it a few days and ill be totally fine. Don't overprescribe urself with medicines. As let the body fight against the mild pain. Eat well and stay hydrated and keep the area clean.

For the past 3 days I have had eye pain at the back of both my eyes. It also hurts when I move my eyes. It is in both my eyes but it appears to alternate. I also feel as though my eye muscles are very stiff and sore and limits my eye movement. I also feel as though my vision is zoning out, blurring my vision and making it difficult to focus. I feel as though I am constantly fighting to keep my eyes focused. Furthermore I have a heavy pressure feeling behind and around my eyes and in my head. It also feels around my nose. I have heavy brow ache and also tension type headache. In general my face, eyes and head feels tense and sore. I am also getting intermittent ear ache, my temples are tender, my cheek also feels slightly numb and I feel like I have toothache slightly. I do not have any nose congestion or cold symptoms so just wondering what this can be?
