Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

You need scaling (professional cleaning) of teeth to be done by a dentist. Dentist will prescribe you mouthwash and an anti-sensitive toothpaste to sensitivity in teeth.

Irregularly positioned teeth or crowding of teeth as it is called, can cause difficulty in properly brushing the teeth and maintaining oral hygiene as the brush is unable to reach through. You need an orthodontic correction of the crowded teeth or braces as it is more commonly known, after which it will be easier for you to clean your teeth.

Mouth Ulcer and Homeopathy

Mouth Ulcer and Homeopathy
Mouth Ulcer and Homeopathy
Nearly everyone suffers from these mouth ulcers at one time or the other in their lives. Most would also agree that these insignificant looking ulcers can be a cause for a major discomfort. For some individuals, the irritation and pain can be so troublesome that it tends to disrupt their daily life. Pain caused by these ulcers, can at times can be so severe that it can limit their ability to properly speak and eat.
Besides the pain, mouth ulcers have another troublesome feature associated with them- ‘frequent recurrence’. They tend to occur very frequently in some individuals. Many patients complain that even when the first lot of ulcers hasn’t healed, a new set of ulcers are on their way. Mouth ulcers also tend to occur in crops (multiple numbers).Homeopathic treatment of it can be a great help in stopping their recurrence. It can also help during the acute phase in reducing the pain and shortening the duration of ulcers.

What are these mouth ulcers?
These ulcers (often called as apthous ulcers or canker sores) are shallow painful sores inside the mouth. They occur on the inside of lips, the insides of cheeks and the base of gums or under the tongue. They appear as a painful white or yellow ulcer surrounded by a bright red area. On a normal course they start with burning sensation followed by a red spot which then progresses into an ulcer. Pain usually subsides over a week?s period and the final healing takes place within 2-3 days Mild to moderate fever may also accompany them. They are different from fever blisters, which usually occur on the lips and corners of the mouth. Although ulcers in the mouth can be of different types such as cold sores etc., these apthous ulcers are of benign type and do not pose any danger, neither are they contagious in nature. These ulcers are more common in women than men and more often occur between the ages of 10 and 40. If an ulcer persists for more than two weeks please make sure to consult your physician.

What causes these ulcers?
Several factors that seem to trigger outbreaks of these apthous ulcers have been identified. Any one or a combination of them can lead to such ulcers. These factors are emotional stress, deficiencies in diet (Iron, B-12, and folic acid), menstrual periods, oral hygiene, allergy to food substances and trauma sites in mouth (where the tongue or cheek has got bitten). They may occur without any definite cause. It also seems that some have it running in their families. Research suggests that some people may get ulcers due to the usage of products containing SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate).This chemical is found in some toothpastes and mouthwashes.

Homeopathic Treatment of Mouth Ulcers
Homoeopathic Medicines that are often used for treating apthous ulcerations in mouth are Borax, Acid Sulf, Acid Nitric, Merc Sol and Kali Chloride etc

PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT
Avoid Foods that irritate
Certain foods can irritate your mouth try and avoid them these foods generally include acidic foods, nuts and certain spices.
Don’t Eat and talk at the same time.
This could cause slight trauma to your inner lining of the mouth which could lead to mouth ulcers.
Have a good oral hygiene
Regular flossing and brushing teeth after meals will give you a good oral hygiene thus help in avoiding ulcers..
you can consult me privately for treatment /permanent cure

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

Hello, what your dentist suggest you is the treatment of choice, you go ahead without hesitation. Cost varies due to many reasons. It varies from 1500-3000 inr in general. The root canal treatment or rct is the removal of soft tissues present inside tooth, which become infected in your case. After cleaning, proper shaping is done to fill it with filling so that it will not cause any problem in future. After rct, capping of the tooth is advised in many cases.

A cup of tea a day, keeps the dentist away! A single cup of tea contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth thereby keeping the teeth and gums healthy.

Get an x-ray done. It will help to find out the cause. If there is cavity get it filled quickly to avoid further more pain and infection. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.

Hi lybrate-user, teeth that assume a new position under the force of braces have a tendency to move back to their original position with time. To prevent this, after fixed braces have played their role, patients are provided with a temporary/removable appliance that serves to strengthen the bone and helps teeth be in their newly acquired position. It appears that you have not worn your retentive appliances (the temporary appliance) regularly.
