Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with Multivitamin cap, for five days in the morning after meals & antiseptic ointment or gel on the area of ulcer until then. Mouth sores are common and rarely cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Jodhpur
Rct is only need when cavity extend to or very near to tooth pulp. So if you can share your x-ray with me than only I can tell that you require rct or normal filling will work. As a general rule if you have pain in that particular tooth than you require a rct.

Ulcers. What causes them? I have ulcers once in a while, and when I do they come in groups of 3,4,5 or even 6 at once. The ulcer gels aren't very effective. They stay for a week before fading away. They are all over the mouth and tongue. Sometimes they begin with wide redness then a big ulcer! How can I never get ulcers?

Hi lybrate-user, thanks for asking. Tongue is the mirror of your digestive system. Mouth and tongue ulcers are due to indigestion or impairment of gastrointestinal flora. You have to improve your dietary habits in order to get complete relief from recurrent mouth ulcers. Please have a paid online consultation with me through Lybrate so that I can give you detailed advice and proper treatment.

The vomit sensation you are talking about is known as gag reflex. It is a protective mechanism of the human body to avoid the entrance of any unwanted material down the throat. In your case, you are experiencing the reflex while brushing, that means your brushing pattern might be wrong. You are taking your brush to much deeper areas than required. Also, you might not be cleaning your tongue properly. Visit your dentist and ask him about some correct brushing patterns and start using a tongue cleaner. Whenever you experience gag try to focus on some other activity or object, such as your big toe. It diverts you and thus the gag stops. Avoid mouth breathing, that increases the gag. If the problem persists even after changing your brushing/cleaning pattern and avoiding mouth breathing there is more to it. Pay a visit to both your dentist and gasteroenterologist.

Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

Dental abscess is characterized by pus formation in the teeth or the gums. This infection may occur either in the gums or the tip of the tooth. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection which may enter the mouth through food, thus causing accumulation of plaque. If the plaque is not removed by following proper dental hygiene, then it may result in abscess.

The various factors that increase your chances of getting affected by dental abscess are a sugar rich diet and poor oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth to prevent symptoms of dental abscess. A diet that has too much sugar may lead to cavities that increases your risk of dental abscess.

Dental abscess may be classified into three types

  1. Periodontal abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the bone structures in the teeth
  2. Gingival abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the gums
  3. Periapical abscess: Periapical abscess occurs in the soft areas of the tooth

Causes:
Entry of bacteria through holes in the teeth may result in breaking down of the soft tissue under the enamel. The infection may result in the hole to penetrate the pulp in the teeth. The bacteria thus infects the bone present in the teeth causing Periapical abscess. The bacteria that infects as a result of plaque accumulation may lead dental abscess. This may also lead to formation of gaps in the teeth leading to infection in the inner areas of the teeth.

Symptoms
The symptoms of dental abscess are: 

  1. The teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures
  2. Pain during chewing food
  3. A persistent pain in the jaw that radiates to the ear
  4. You may experience a swelling in the face and the neck
  5. Tenderness in the lymph nodes in the neck
  6. You may experience symptoms of fever
  7. Presence of foul smelling fluid in your mouth

You have two options. The gaping can be filled with cement. If the gap is more you need to get new bridge. Second option is the best.

Hi. Your relative can definitely go to a dentist even with high sugar levels. Only thing is - care has to be taken if he/she is going to undergo any extraction, to avoid any post treatment complications in healing of the wounds.

For front gap in tooth can be build up my filling material, cap or braces. The choice of treatment depends on the amount of gap and will be determined by your dentist. For yellowish teeth there are various options like scaling and polishing, microabrasion, whitening treatment. You can opt any but, unfortunately home remedies for whitening is not very effective for long term.

Dear lybrate-user, the remaining root of the extracted tooth must be taken out. Ask your doctor to extract the same and your wound might need dressings of some antiseptics like iodoform, which will augment the healing process after the tooth is taken out.

Main cause of halitosis is not maintaining your oral hygiene properly. First, clean your tongue properly. Second, brush twice daily with a fluoridated toothpaste. Third, use mouth wash.

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.
