Salivary Gland Disorder - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment

Salivary Gland Disorder - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment

Remember the sensation similar to that of a warm liquid flooding your tongue when you smell a deliciously baked chocolate cake? Or a freshly baked brown bread early in the morning? That is your saliva. The salivary glands present in the inner linings of the lips, cheeks and the mouth produce saliva. Saliva protects one from tooth decay, keeps the mouth moist and helps in the digestive process. Any disease that affects the saliva gland comes under the domain of ‘salivary gland disorders’.

Causes

There are three salivary glands in humans known as the Submandibular, Parotid and the Sublingual gland. The most common disorder that affects salivary glands is that of ‘blocked salivary glands’. Sialothiasis is a disorder wherein, calcium stones are formed in the salivary glands, which obstruct these glands. Obstruction of the salivary glands leads to an infection called sialadenitis, caused by strep or staph bacteria.

Sjogren’s syndrome is another condition which affects the salivary glands. In this condition, the antibodies in the body target the cells that produce saliva. This occurs mostly in women who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Viral infections are also common; flu virus and mumps are a few examples.

Symptoms

The symptoms of salivary gland disorders are problem specific; for Sialolithiasis, you will feel a painful lump below the tongue, which tends to aggravate when you eat. In case of Sialadenitis, there will be an odorous pus-filled discharge along with a lump beneath the chin. For viral infections, the symptoms will include muscle pain, swelling and fever. Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry eyes and mouth, joint pain, fatigue and tooth decay.

Treatment

Like the symptoms, the treatments for salivary gland disorders are also problem specific. For salivary gland tumors, surgery is required. If it is a malignant tumor, then radiation therapy will be prescribed which may cause dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia). For bacterial and viral infections, anti-bacterial and anti-viral medications are required for treatment, respectively. It is also important that you take good care of your oral health for an even more effective treatment. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis will help keep salivary gland disorders at bay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT-specialist.

You would firstly have to stop the habit of eating rajniganda. And then get teeth cleaning done. To remove the tartar /deposit/stain on the teeth. You can try. Using oral b paste. Brush two times daily.

Good evening - the dental surgeon I am sure is guiding you well. Trust your feelings and if you feel you trust his opinion go ahead for it. You may also seek a second opinion about it from another dental surgeon specialist. And be honest to them that you need to seek another opinion - I am sure they will not mind your honesty.

Mouth ulcer usally disappear within one week to 15 days. If persists longer then you need to be investigated properly to rule out the cause and to decide the treatment. Apply metrogel over the sores. Drink plenty of water and have fibrous food. Take zevit tabs once daily for 15 days. Take care of your oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after eating anything.

Rinse your mouth with warm saline (salt) water. Put clove oil on little cotton and insert in the cavity if its there and press it with teeth opposite to it. You can purchase clove oil from medical stores. Avoid painkillers as much as possible. If you feel the need for painkilllers then take 1 and consult your dentist as soon as possible.

Normally teeth chattering is due to stress. So first try to reduce it. She also needs a bite guard to wear while she sleeps to prevent damage to teeth. Visit your dentist at earliest.

Sometimes teeth become sensitive after getting a filling done. If the problem persists for more than 2-3 days, visit your dentist for knowing exact cause and remedy of the sensitivity.

Ulcers generally take 1-2 weeks to heal completely. Recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures n cheek bites. It can also b due to general nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stressful lifestyle etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs which includes vit c n iron supplements if your hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous n citrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.

Brushing and flossing twice a day even during the orthodontic treatment is very necessary as food particles easily get stuck into the braces.

Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. It could also be because of cold, acidity, fasting for long hours, not drinking enough water, stomach problem. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

After rct a temporary cement is placed that should be replaced after a week and go for crown. In your condition the cement is gone so food may be getting accumulated that's the pain so no big deal. Get a permanent filling followed by crown.

My tooth filling dropped out I am scared to go again to the dentist. What should I do to cure it at home?

My tooth filling dropped out I am scared to go again to the dentist. What should I do to cure it at home?
•If there is a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.
