Hey doctor I have some problem in my teeth, when I drink some cold water, there is a serious severe in my teeth.

Hey doctor I have some problem in my teeth, when I drink some cold water, there is a serious severe in my teeth.
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regards.

Mera tongue pink colour se white ho gaya hai. Main roz saaf karta hun. But aisa kyun. Kis mein saaf karne se acha saaf aur sundar tongue dekhega.

Hello lybrate-user hi. I hope apke tongue ka whiteness, jyada white aur patchy nahi hai. Agar aesa hai to apko immediately kisi ache dentist ko dikhana chahiye. Woh pre cancerous condition ho sakta hai. Aur agar normal gandagi jaisa whiteness hai toh regularly saaf kijiye, khane ke baad muh kula kijiye. Sab thik rahega. Dhanyabad.

There are various causes for mouth ulcers: *diet *deficiency *irritating fillings *stress/ allegries *late night *wisdom tooth *broken teeth etc. You need to find out the exact cause. It could be one of the above. You need to see your nearest dentist at your earliest. Till then you can apply this gel called rexidin m forte on the affected area twice a day.

I have gums bleedings and bad smell from 06 months. How to be prevent this. Please suggest me.
We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth.Dry mouth also can cause bad breath.Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath,You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

Sir, my rootcanal complete before 6 month but in this is small hole, now in want cap on teeth pls guide me this is correct or not & how may rs spend in this process?

BDS
Dentist, Dibrugarh
You would have gone through capping of the tooth at that time only.You can go for capping now also . Before that you should go for restoration of that cavity (hole) which is done after RCT. Make sure the RCT is in good condition. By xray you can get it checked. And cap rates vary according to material of cap.

Is tongue fissures can be healed? Will tongue become normal again? Is fissured tongue is a disease or symptom of another disease? Is fissured tongue a matter of concern?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
It’s called fissured tongue. It is s a benign condition characterized by deep grooves (fissures) in the dorsum of the tongue. Although these grooves may look unsettling, the condition is usually painless. Clean the surface of the tongue with a tongue cleaner to prevent any bacterial or fungal infection.

These are to different problem but can be correlated, as due to malocclusion there can be a tmj clicking sound which is there due to either deep bite or any other cause. As a solution I would ask you to soon start your orthodontist visit for ortho treatment. For the tmj start with the 5 steps protocol - 1. Less mouth opening 2. Soft diet 3. Exercise 4. Moist heat at the joint 5. Medicine a) tab glucosamine once in a day b) painkiller if required.

Blood with saliva is mostly due to periodontitis. Dat is swelling and infection in your gums. So d treatment you need is scaling and curettage. Asap.

My 6 year old daughter having bed smell problem from mouth at time of wake up in morning. Please guide us for solve this problem.

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Either you or her mother will just have to take care of the basic hygiene. Please make sure you make her brush and rinse her mouth before she goes to bed at night. Try to avoid giving her milk or anything else to eat or drink after that. Get her to rinse her mouth immediately after she gets up in the morning. And then ensure she brushes her mouth in the morning as well. Also, please check her teeth to see if there are any cavities in any of her teeth or see a Pediatric Dentist for the same.

Dental Treatment Under Sedation/general Anaesthesia I

Providing the highest quality dental treatment for all patients is the motto of dental practitioners.In order to achieve the same,complete chair-side cooperation is an important requirement.There are various factors and situations where the same is not achieved either in part or full like:

a) very young age of child patient

b) physical or mental dis-ability of some kind preventing the same

c) phobic patients or patients with past bad,painful and traumatic experience

d) extensive treatments requiring high number of patients affecting the cooperation.

In these cases the dental treatment under sedation/general anaesthesia is a very effective,safe and valuable treatment alternative.

These treatment are general done by specially trained dental surgeons mainly pediatric dentists who with their team of doctors essentially anesthetists,pediatricians and pediatric dentists undertake such treatments in a safe and sound manner.

I had braces for 2 and a half years and treatment was completed in 2013. The doctor took the imprints of my mouth and gave something to wear while sleeping. I was told to wear it for 6 months followed by a check up every 6 months. But the doctor didn't call me once after 2013. Neither does he picks up my call and I still wear those at night. What should I do? Should I discontinue wearing it or not? I'm afraid if I leave, the position would change a bit.

Hello lybrate-user, the thing which is given by your dentist is known as retainer, it is used to maintain the positions of the teeth after ortho treatment. There are two types of retainers removable and fixed. You are using removable type of retainer, it is used for six month along with proper activation by the dentist in each month visit.

Please take her to a local dentist. Pain in gums or periodontal problems are generally not very painful. She might be having a carious tooth which is causing her pain. Proper oral and radiographic findings will get a exact diagnosis and hence give her relief. A healthy diet is not detrimental to healthy oral cavity. Brushing twice a day, avoiding sweet foods and soft drinks are few practices that helps in lower caries formation in the long run.

Health Tip - Gums

Health Tip - Gums
You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Dear Sir, now I have to replace my front 3 theeths so which are the best crowns present I have metal crown fixed.
It's really sad that that You have lost your front teeth at such an young age. However it is possible to restore your teeth and appearance back to normal. Since it looks like you already have a metal crown, I would strongly advise you to consider replacing them with zirconia crowns. Not only will they look significantly better, they will also last longer.
