I had a crown put on a broken tooth 10 days ago. I still have an ulcer and quite a bit of pain on the gum under the crown. The novacaine injection hurt terribly, like never before. Could there have been some damage that I still have pain. The office told me to keep gargling with salt water. But after 10 days, the ulcer from what I think was traumafrom the instruments is still here. Can this traumacause an abscess?

Yes if infected it may cause an abscess. Don't worry pl rinse your mouth with chilled water with ice cubes 3-5 times a day. Pl put icecream in the area of the ulcer for 1 n minute then eat it. You may continue rinsing with hot salt water. Apply honey over the ulcer n injection area. If ulcer doesn't heal soon pl consult a dental surgeon.

You might have gum disease. It can be treated and brought back normal. For home care brush gently with soft brush and rinse well after meals. Practice using dental floss or interdental brush to clean the interdental spaces.

Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

There are a lot of ways that tooth enamel (hardest substance in the body) can wear off – decay and erosion being the most common. While decay is an infectious process with bacteria playing a significant role, erosion is nowhere associated with bacteria. The tooth gets ‘eroded’ in small amounts with the various food substances that you eat. These include the sodas that wash down the burgers and pizzas, the various sports drinks that are used to boost performance, the lime and oranges that are constantly sucked, and other acidic and sugary foods.

It does not mean you should not have an occasional soda or a sports drink or a citrus fruit. It is the constant and overuse of these that is damaging. The oral pH goes to a very acidic level (below 5.5) with these which then leads to demineralization of the enamel. The environment that is usually produced by the bacteria is caused by the acidic and sugary foods.

In some cases, acids could come from an internal source too. People with gastroesophageal reflux disease may have the acid coming from the esophagus, which also can lead to erosion.

However, there is nothing to be disheartened about as the lost enamel can be replaced to restore both tooth function and appearance. The most commonly affected teeth are the inner surfaces of the upper incisors and the biting surfaces of the lower molars. The result is tooth sensitivity, darker teeth, and increased chances of tooth decay and fracture.

Repair Mechanisms: Treating erosion has two components to it – to repair the lost tooth structure and to prevent further damage. The second is equally or rather more important than the first one.

Treatment-

  1. Restorations: In mild cases of erosion, the lost tooth structure can be rebuilt with composite resins or glass ionomer cement which usually restores lost tooth structure to its earlier version. Usually done in one sitting, it should not take more than an hour. The results would last longer if further erosion is prevented.

  2. Crowns: In cases where a lot of tooth structure has been lost and the remaining enamel weakened, a new crown will need to be done. This offers protection against further decay and also restores esthetics and function quite effectively.

Prevention-

  1. Avoid overuse of acidic, sugary drinks like sports drinks and aerated beverages.

  2. Avoid sucking on oranges as they prolong the effect of the citric acid on the tooth.

  3. Include toothpaste and rinse with fluoride.

  4. Improve dairy intake, thereby providing sufficient calcium.

  5. Follow oral hygiene habits including brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits.

Lost tooth structure unfortunately cannot be regained; however, further loss can be prevented.

If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

My honest suggestions to you are: 1. Drink plenty of warm water 2. Use povidone iodine throat spray or gargles for a week or ten days, to reduce the inflammation and bad breath. 3. If you have any problems related to the acid reflux, it has to be treated with proton pump inhibitors. 4. Consult your dentist for a complete evaluation. 5. Avoid chilled food and beverages/smoking/coffee/alcohol if any.

Hi lybrate-user your post suggest that you are suffering from hemifacial hypertrophy. In this condition half of the face keeps growing and the other half doesn't. Eventually you have asymmetric face and dentition. The diagnosis needs to be confirmed for which You need to consult an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon who would advise you some tests and x-rays for proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Hope this helps.
