I am suffering from mouth ulcers and used many ointments like ora help, which contain choline salsylate. Can you suggest me any tablets in this regard?

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

PLease do not try to close the gap on your own with bands which will also not work. You need to wear braces for at least six months or one year depending on the amount of gap. Please visit an orthodontist.(dentist ). If the gap is very small then it can be filled with cement.

Hi, do consult your dentist who performed surgery, but general instructions are as follows: the following will help speed recovery: take painkillers as prescribed by your dentist or oral surgeon. Apply an ice or cold pack to the outside of your mouth to help relieve pain and swelling. After 24 hours, rinse your mouth gently with warm salt water several times a day to reduce swelling and relieve pain. Make your own salt water by mixing 1 tsp (5 g) of salt in a medium-sized glass [8 fl oz (240 ml)] of warm water. Change gauze pads before they become soaked with blood. Relax after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding. Avoid smoking. Eat soft foods, such as gelatin, pudding, or a thin soup. Gradually add solid foods to your diet as healing progresses. Do not lie flat. This may prolong bleeding. Prop up your head with pillows. Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue. Do not use sucking motions, such as when using a straw to drink. Continue to carefully brush your teeth and tongue.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need c.

Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

Hi it is advised not to take hard food when you have artificial tooth. Becase artificial teeth have not so much strenght like natural teeth so there can be chance of fracture or hipping out. You shoud avoid hard food like sugar cane, walnut.

How oil pulling is useful?

BDS, PGDFO
Dentist, Gadchiroli
How oil pulling is useful?
Oil pulling, a popular folk remedy can be useful for whiter teeth and as a flossing agent. Slosh your mouth with coconut, sunflower or sesame oil for 15 minutes and then spit it out. It lubricates the gums and provides that extra shine to your teeth.

Chewing sugar-free gum after a meal brushes your teeth

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Chew sugar-free gum after a meal when you can?t brush This action actually helps remove food debris and stimulates saliva flow Replace processed foods with more fruits, nuts and fresh vegetables to reduce the amount of decay-causing, refined sugar in your diet Stop smoking ? it not only causes major diseases but stains teeth, causes bad breath and can lead to gum disease and even oral cancer Sip soda through a straw to help reduce the acid attack on your teeth Change manual toothbrushes every 2-3 months ?when those bristles appear splayed they simply don?t clean as well and can even damage your gums .
