Hello, bleeding gums are indications of gum diseases. Like pyrhea. Due to deposits and stains around tooth neck, gum diseases occur. You need a proper dental scaling and gums treatment done. Its a simple procedure and doesnt cost much. Please visit your nearest dentist. Thank you.

What type of foods should I avoid and prefer after having a root canal treatment recently?
Do NOT Eat or Drink: Crunchy foods such as carrots, corn on the cob or apples, as they could damage the tooth or cause undue pain. Chewy foods such as gum, most breads or candy, like taffy, as it could pull out the temporary filling. Hard foods such as ice or nuts as they could damage the tooth or cause unnecessary pain. Avoid alcohol as it could increase bleeding. Avoid food that is excessively hot as it could increase sensitivity. Also avoid spicy food could cause unnecessary discomfort or sensitivity. DO Eat and Drink: Fruit smoothies Yogurt Ice Cream (without nuts or anything crunchy or chewy) Bananas Mangos Pears Milkshakes Peaches Soup (as long as it does not have anything crunchy or chewy in it) Mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower Oatmeal Cream of wheat Eggs Applesauce Rice pudding Tuna salad Sushi Tofu Thin pastas cut up well (such as angel hair) Pancakes Pudding Hummus Macaroni and cheese Most Indian, Thai and Chinese food providing provided the noodles are thin, the meal is very mildly spiced and there are not any peanut, carrots or other crunchy/hard ingredients

Avoid it in the kids less than 10 years. And use as little as required to brush your teeth. Any tooth paste that contains sodium lauryl sulfate is harmful. So use less quantity of the toothpaste always.

You may have cavity and pulpits. Get an x-ray done to know about the extent of the cavity. After that treatment plan can be decided it will be either filling or rct. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.

In case of bleeding gums firstly use a soft bristle tooth brush. After brushing gently massage your gums with finger by tooth powder to enhance blood supply in gums. And have an oral prophylaxis done to have cleaning of your teeth.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

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. 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.

I read your explanation regarding causes of toothache. However it did not cover my case. I have no cavity, decay, germs, etc. Due to the chewing of amla with honey daily morning, I got my layer of enamel thin and so I have toothache while eating something cold or sweets. Can you suggest any solution for this.

Amla contains vit c. As it is acidic it dissolves enamel which is calcium compound. You should discontinue the habit. Instead you may take amla powder. For teeth pain, personally consult with a dentist.

Tablets are only for temporary relief. You should stop taking the tablet & then wait & watch to see if the pain starts again. If there is no pain, then no need for tablets & in case if there is pain, then you should visit a dentist for a permanent solution.
