5 Quick Solutions for Dental Problems
This guide will teach you how to come up with some quick fixes for common dental/oral health problems.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you will avoid the dentist if your tooth gets knocked out, but you can surely get some ideas about fast soothing solutions:
1. If your teeth are extra sensitive
This might happen because of an exposed nerve root, which in turn happens because your gums are receding. If this is the case, you really have to give up using toothpastes that contain baking soda or other whitening agents which are extremely abrasive.
Also, make sure to switch to a brush with softer bristles in order to be gentle on your gums and teeth when brushing. In case your teeth are extremely sensitive, a professional fluoride treatment might also help to strengthen the outer layer of your tooth structure.
2. If you lose one of your teeth
You should immediately rinse your mouth with pure water, and try to push your tooth back into the socket. Next, make sure to bite down carefully on a clean piece of cloth or gauze. Instead of a cloth, you could use a moist black/chamomile tea sachet.
When the tooth is knocked out, the periodontal ligaments are torn, but sometimes not all of these ligaments are damaged. If you push back the tooth as soon as it came out, it might reconnect well with the gums. Visit a dentist for checkup and further treatment advice.
3. If you have burned your palate with a sizzling slice of pizza (the most common “accident” of burning the mouth palate!), you are exposed to the risk of infection.
Therefore, use Orabase gel containing corticosteroids, which will protect the mucous membrane in your mouth against the possibility of an infection. This gel will act like a protective bandage, and it will slowly heal the damaged tissue. The gel is also suitable for mouth ulcers, sores, or injuries caused by the toothbrush. For further advice, turn to a dentist.
4. If you have burned your tongue with hot drinks or soup, you should immediately rinse your mouth with a mix of warm water and 1tsp salt.
The salt will help fighting off infection, and it will also neutralize the acids that contain harmful bacteria.
5. If you are putting up with irritating canker sores (from hot and spicy foods, or harsh foods that irritate your mucous membrane), make sure to apply pure vegetable oil on a gauze and keep it on your sore for about 3 minutes, several times a day.
The vegetable oil will help protecting the sore from further irritations, and thugs it will heal much faster.
