Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Bleeding gums, bad breath occurs due to poor oral hygiene maintainenece resulting in plague and food debris accumulation, nutritional deficienecies, immunological disorders, faulty appliances, hormonal imbalance.

I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get a checkup done.
Take an OPG radiograph which will give entire picture of gums, bone loss and wisdom tooth.
Go for symptomatic treatment of complete mouth scaling and polishing.

Take multivitamin tablets.
Use chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly.
Include vitaminC, vitB12 containing food in your diet like lemon, oranges.

As you have mentioned you have GIT problems get a checkup done by a Gasteroenterologist.
Also check your menstural cycle, blood sugar level to know whether you are diabetic or not.

You might be having Pericoronitis around the wisdom tooth,
Get checkup done and if needed get the tooth extracted.

Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Dentist Dr. Anshumala Singh's  Response
Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

your history suggests that you have developed abscess in the region of third molar.

Also the white substance on the back of your tongue could be a developing lesion due to continuous irritation.

please do not ignore, if you are not satisfied with your present physician you can take second opinion.

it might be benign or malignant lesion,its progression has to be monitored.

Also please mention what does your endoscopy say?

For teeth, visit your dentist ,get clinical evaluation done and if required abscess should be drained followed by antibiotic course.

maintain very good oral hygiene by using antiseptic rinses.

Hope it helps.


Take care.
