If the pain is continuous then you need to visit your dentist as soon as possible to get it treated otherwise the pain might increase. In between you can take tab. Ketorol dt 2 tablets stat followed by 1tab every 8-10 hours dissolved in normal water. If ketorol is not available take tab combiflam twice daily for interim relief. Do make sure that you are not allergic to any of these two. I hope this helps.

Hi sir I have oral problem some time my mouth smiling and bleeding so what can I do for my teeth and mouth.
few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.

How many times should we brush our teeth?

You should brush twice daily is recommended but with a proper technique. If you brush properly before you sleep then you don't need to brush them for a longer time in the morning. Every one thinks brushing for a longer time will clean my teeth but that's not true. Twice is recomended.

Please go to a nearby dentist. Most probably you might be having an infection in the tooth. A painkiller like paracetamol may help for the time being.

Hi, you will need to visit a dentist. For the tooth decay, they may take an x-ray and see how deep the decay has gone. If it's not too deep, they will suggest a filling. For the yellow colour, you may be advised to practice better oral hygiene or if you are interested and have no other problems, you can get bleaching or teeth whitening done. Hope this has been helpful.

Get your teeth cleaned to get rid of it. Mostly the cause of fowl smell from mouth is deposits over teeth surface. Other possible reasons are dry mouth, food deposits over tongue. Visit a dentist near you to know the exact reason for the same.

Taking a large no. Of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.
