I have bleeding in my mouth when I brush it. Please help me?

BDS
Dentist,
I have bleeding in my mouth when I brush it. Please help me?
Hi gum bleeding can be due to various factors. After proper examination by your dentist you will come to know the exact cause of it. Main and basic reasons for your gum bleeding& bad breath problem are plaque/calculus/tartar deposits present in your teeth. These factors cause gum inflammation known as gingivitis which leads to swollen and bleeding gums. Apart from this other reasons for gum bleeding could be improper alignment of the teeth deficiency of vitamin c (also known as scurvy) prolonged use of some medications like aspirin, underlying systemic conditions like bleeding disorders.(very very rare possibility) it is advisable to visit a dentist and get proper treatment done which may include scaling (i. E. Professional cleaning) & or flap surgery to avoid loss of teeth in long run also scaling is to be done every 6 months as a routine maintenance procedure for healthy teeth and strong gums.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. 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. 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.

Hi doc. Is it possible to recover from cavity naturally or any other way other than drilling and filling teeth.

Hi doc.
Is it possible to recover from cavity naturally or any other way other than drilling and filling teeth.
Apply turmeric powder on your cavity. Leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse your mouth. Another option is to mix turmeric powder in sesame oil and apply it on your teeth. Leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse your mouth.

I'm having discomfort because of my braces. Is it gonna affect my brain? Please help me.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Howrah
I'm having discomfort because of my braces. Is it gonna affect my brain? Please help me.
No its definitely not going to affect your brain or any part of your body. Its totally normal to have discomfort with braces initially. It happens because your teeth are moving slowly inside your jaw as the braces are aligning your teeth with mild force. You can rinse your mouth with lukewarm water to get temporary relief from this discomfort. The discomfort will subside on its own after two days.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

Once there is a cavity/hole in your teeth, it can't b reversed bck to its good health by any home remedies. It requires definitive treatment n intervention by dentist like filling of tooth after cleaning the decay. If the decay is extensive, rct followed by capping'll b done.
