Oral thrush is a fungal infection which occurs due to dry mouth, uncontrolled diabetes and weak immune system with debilitating disease or patient on corticosteroids. You may need fluconazole & renal safety dosage of amphotericin b (iv drugs to be used only with the advice of oral & maxillofacial surgeons). Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need candid ointment until then. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Ulcer treatment that irritate the upper part of the body which means near lungs and also cause bad smell by mouth.
•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.

Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS

Ask Free Question
Sometimes patients are worried whether ultrasonic scaling makes the teeth more mobile. In reality it is just the opposite. During and immediate post scaling patients may find spaces between their teeth but that is because the calculus and other foreign particles have been dislodged to clean the gum area. But very good healthy gum tissues grow back to fill up the spaces making your teeth and gums stronger and better.

These brown may be caries or may be stains. Do you need to be go for physical examination to rule out the cause. Bleaching is helpful in staining. And if caries has started get it filled.

How to remove marks of gutkha on teeth?
Quit the habit of gutka because it causes so many serious oral problems like leukoplakia. Submucous fibrosis and even oral cancer. For stains you can go for bleaching the tooth. You can consult me for further advice.

You are having geographic tongue geographic tongue is the name of a condition that gets its name from its map-like appearance on the upper surface and sides of the tongue. It may occur in other areas of your mouth, as well. You must understand and will be relieved to know that geographic tongue is a harmless, benign condition that isn't linked to any infection. Two other names for geographic tongue are benign migratory glossitis and erythema migrans. However, it tends to affect middle-aged or older adults more often. It appears to be more common in women than in men. Kindly visit dental surgeon for check up and treatment.

My tooth has been bleeding every time I brush my teeth and spitting what could be the reason please help me out.

My tooth has been bleeding every time I brush my teeth and spitting what could be the reason please help me out.
Bleeding in gums is definitely due to infection. Along with scaling you need to change your brush type and brushing method i. E. If you are brushing harshly with hard bristle tooth brush it will definitely cause trauma to the inflamed gums. After you finished with your scaling i. E. After 24 hours you can start with warm saline rinses. Warm saline rinses means take warm water and 1 spoon of salt. Follow this type of rinsing at least for 5-7 days almost 5-6 times in a day.

Proper brushing

One of the easiest steps to do to help your teeth keep clean. When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line. Both the gum line and the tooth surface should be in contact with the bristles. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up and down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums, place the bristles at a 45degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up an down motion. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria, which might cause bad breath.
Try to brush at least twice a day to prevent acid buildup from the breakdown of food by bacteria. However, if your work or activities prevent you from doing this, thoroughly rinse your mouth with water after eating to minimize the amount of food that would serve as substrate for the bacteria.
