Proper examination is required, as your wisdom tooth might be erupting and causing this problem. Some medication will have to be given after examining.

Small sized inflamation in the upper jaw for the last 3 months.Gum is slightly swollen and painful.Also when I eat anything there is pain in the upper palate.My age is 77yrs.

Dentist, Varanasi
Hello, As per your history it seems infection has entered the pulp of some adjacent teeth of the concerned area, and because of that there is inflammation in periapical area of tooth , which is appearing as some localized swelling over the gums. You need to first visit the dentist, there he/she will take final call as it needs to be assessed clinically, by the way it seems as if you need a root canal treatment .

Hello lybrate-user! If the dark spots that you have are stains and not caries on your teeth then Scaling and polishing done by your dentist will help you resolve the problem of staining/dark spots. Since you have asked about home remedies, why do not you try brushing your teeth with paste made up of baking soda and lemon, twice a week. For more detailed and step by step guidance you can contact me.

Since the last week or so, I have been constantly having a sour taste on my tongue. This is likely not because of the antibiotics (taken for infected anal aperture gland infection), which were discontinued from the day-before.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
•A change in taste may result from dehydration, glossitis, a dry mouth, allergies, salivary glands infections, lack of zinc and vitamin B12, and polyps in the nose. •Others include breathing through the mouth, inflamed upper airways, and autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome and Bell's palsy. •Some injuries and traumas that cause a bitter taste include head, nerve, mouth and nose injuries, and biting your tongue. •Dental appliances such as braces, any surgery on your ear, nose, teeth or throat, and radiation therapy on your neck or head cause a bitter taste in mouth. •Gargle with water. Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums using toothpaste. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Drink liquids, chew sugar-free gum or mints, or suck on sour candies. Use plastic utensils if you have taste alteration when eating.

My friend often gets ulcers in the mouth with swelling of lios and gums. This happens repeatedly. She has tried many homeopathic medications, although it gets fine in a few days after taking the homeopathic medicine, it has never been cured permanently! Can anybody suggest sonething for her?

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Hapur
Ask her to avoid taking very hot beverages and spicy food cause may be this may be the cause of mucosal thinning and ask her to take one tablet of vitamin c 500 mg chew able tablet for 20 days as it will help increase repairing and one becosule capsule every night for 15 days. Her problem will resolve and even ask her to get her endoscopy of stomach to rule out any occurrence of peptic ulcer.

I regularly brush my teeth but it still have a very bad smell what to do.?

BDS
Dentist,
I regularly brush my teeth but it still have a very bad smell what to do.?
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Dentist, Gurgaon
What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Titanium is considered to have an affinity with bones and also when the new cells grow they attach to the post, thereby, making a strong bond. It is for this reason, the metal is used in dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium posts, which resemble the root of the tooth. These posts are embedded on the jawbone below the gums. This makes it easy to place missing bridge or teeth of the area where inserted. Implants are different from dentures and benefit the oral health as they are not fastened to other teeth like the bridges.

Factors to be kept in mind during the procedure:

  1. Patients must have healthy gums
  2. Must have sufficient bone strength to hold the implants in place
  3. One must be dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene
  4. Must be visiting dentist regularly

Mechanism of Dental Implant:

A strong, biocompatible material is used to make screws, which are inserted into the bone. Titanium is the most preferred material, and because of its unique property of osseo-integration (fuses with the bone), it fuses with the bone to reduce bone loss after the tooth is gone. In most cases, the titanium screws, which act as the root for the implants are placed into the bone and allowed for some weeks to few months to fuse with the bone. Then, an interim crown may be used until the screw is ready to take on an implant.

The screw is periodically monitored and once it is completely accepted, then an abutment is placed on it. This acts like a stump or a root, over which a crown will be placed. Though most implants are done for replacing single teeth, in many cases, multiple teeth may be replaced using abutments. If the missing teeth are adjacent to each other or in the same quadrant, then a denture might be overlaid over the abutments. Alternately, a partial denture may be used which is screwed over an abutment.

Things to keep in mind post Dental Implant:

  1. Careful brushing: Only soft bristle brush needs to be used in this regard and do not pressurize the treated areas. In this case, tenderness needs to be considered so that brushing can be conducted carefully without injuring or hurting implants.
  2. Maintaining oral hygiene: Oral hygiene is the most important thing, and this is the reason you are advised to use any special mouthwash or any other flossing solution. This step needs to be continued for preventing the growth of unwanted infectious elements as that can ruin the implants completely. You should also carefully brush your teeth without affecting the implanted area.
  3. Avoid smoking: You are not allowed to continue smoking after implants, as that can make the situation complicated, as a result, of which you might even experience dreadful consequences. You should follow different steps to completely curtail the smoking habit from your lifestyle.

Hello lybrate-user, you are already having artificial bridge in your mouth. Implant are good because putting implant you don't have to take support from adjacent teeth. They are fixed into the bone like a natural tooth. Esthetically and functionally they are the best option of replacing the tooth.

Sometimes the filling remains a bit high. So while chewing when teeth come in contact. You feel pain. Or otherwise if the filling is very near to the tooth inner structure we call it pulp. Then also you may get pain. X ray will reveal the truth. Go back to your dentist n get it checked properly if it is high. The dentist will trim it off or otherwise will do the x ray n will do the treatment accordingly. For time being if pain is not bearable. Take one painkiller like. Brufen. Take care.
