you should go for dental check up, if you have wisdom tooth impacted means wisdom tooth is not erupting straight .you need to get it extracted. if it is straight then take medicine for a while

Certified Implantologist, BDS

A pain killer may give you relief but my advice is to avoid self medications plus the relief will be temporary better to get the required treatment done so that you never need any painkillers for teeth.

I am 36 years male. What advise for me related to my gums soiling and bleeding also in gums past three months.

BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Ur condition is gingivities, you need dental scaling following a massage paste for gums for 3mnths. This is conservative treatment if this did not give any result than you can proceed for subgingival curettage.

I have eating tobacco. How can I leave that poison. I used kiwnic gum but I can't see any changes.

Self motivation is the best way. The chewing gums in the market are just to help you with quitting but you need to be strong willed.

Hello, you can go for home whitening gels day and night for whitening your teeth. Consult the dentist for it. Also, you can get composite or ceramic veneers or crowns for your teeth.

I am having salivary stone under my tongue since 6 months. My left portion of the jaw under the stone pains when touched. What to do?

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
Mr. Lybrate-user, it will be best if you get this stone removed. You may have to consult the local oral surgeon for the same. But this stone can become a source of external infection if you don't get it removed at the earliest.

Is Your Toothbrush Making You Sick?
When somebody in the household gets sick with the cold or flu, it won't be long before the entire family is feeling ill, as well. Germs pass from one person to another, more so between people who live together, because of unhygienic habits. Storing and cleaning the toothbrush is one of the most overlooked aspect of home life that potentially spreads diseases. A badly kept toothbrush can also cause oral infections and other chronic health illnesses.
Don't Share That Toothbrush
Toothbrush sharing is vile but also intimate. Some new couples validate their new romances by sharing toothbrushes. Don't do it! Sharing the same toothbrush is not like exchanging bodily fluids while kissing. Toothbrush bristles get into the crevices of the gums and teeth, pushing germs deep into the tissue. The body has many natural defenses against infections, but become vulnerable when there is a tear in the tissue, something that happens often in the mouth. You might have bitten your tongue or gum, flossed too forcefully between the teeth or scratch the gum with hard brush bristles.
Don't Cover Toothbrushes
People put plastic covers on the toothbrush head thinking it protects it from airborne germs. And it does, but the confined and moist environment toothbrush covers create also exponentially increases the amount of germs already on the toothbrush. Toothbrush covers help when packing for trips, because it keeps the bristles from collecting dust and other dirt on the bottom of your bag. Wrapping your toothbrush in paper is even better when travelling, because paper is disposable and absorbs extra moisture while protecting bristles from getting dirty. In the bathroom, keep the toothbrush out to dry in a cup holder, away from the toilet bowl. Don't crowd several toothbrushes in one holder to avoid cross contamination.
Rinse Under Running Water
After use, rinse your toothbrush under running water to remove as much debris as you can and dilute germs on the toothbrush head. Every now and then soak the entire toothbrush head for a few minutes in mouthwash or a solution of salt and warm water to disinfect. The American Dental Association recommends that you change your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Replace children's toothbrushes even more frequently, as they wear out much faster. Since there are so many different kinds of toothbrushes, quality and durability differs. Change your brush when it looks too worn or dirty, rather than waiting for 3 to 4 months to pass.
Some people clean their brushes by heating it in the microwave or leaving it in a dishwasher. This can damage some toothbrushes but could work for others. These methods and the use of mouthwash and sanitizing solutions to clean toothbrushes, are not supported by the American Dental Association, because there is no clinical evidence to show that they actually suppress bacterial growth. But, if some rituals make you feel better, and they work for you, don't give them up if it helps you have consistent hygiene habits.

My teeth are not at the right location. It is zig zag and very more space between the teeth. What is the solution for this problem.

Seeing your age you will get good results by orthontic treatment that involves placement of braces. You should go for it sooner because as the age progress like in 30 years etc results are not that good.

No home remedies. Lemon baking soda might abrade your teeth and make them sensitive. See a dentist. Get cleaning done. 30 mins procedure.

I am 21 year old student suffering from cross bite. Means my upper jaw and lower jaw is not aligned. Doctor told me lower jaw surgery. Can you tell how much it will be cost.

MDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
You will need surgery for either one or both jaws depending on how complex it is. Surgery alone may not sort out the issue as the teeth will also need braces to correct the position before or after surgery for correct treatment. Cost depends on the doctor, hospital and equipment /plates screws used. A private consultation would be appropriate for this. X rays need to be seen.

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.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •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. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •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. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

I have been suffering from teeth problem for someday. When l drank cold water it is very sensitive to one part of my upper teeth. How can l get rid of this problem?

Most probably you need rct and capping of your tooth. Dentist will do an x-ray and tell whether you need rct or a filling may suffice.

I am 69 years and The Dr. Suggested n tried to RCT in my one teeth. I had to stop it as it was very painful inspite of local anaesthesia. Later I got it extracted. Again another Dr. suggested RCT for another tooth. I want to know whether RCT procedure gives unbearable pain?

RCT treatment will never cause more pain .the pain in that area is only due to that infection and that pain will be very less.
