hi there

thanx for your query.

firstly please stop use of clove oil. it will burn the gums and corners of lips, clove oil is very much used in dentistry but in a certain composition and in a cautious dosage.

now for ur ulcer u can use DOLOGEL CT GEL on the sore areas.

for the lower front teeth where u feel the golden brownish off white deposit, it is surely CALCULUS deposited on your teeth. which is causing gum infection which will soon lead to bad smell, mobility of teeth and ultimately tooth loss. kindly get a professional dental cleaning done for your teeth.

start rinsing with MOUTH WASH TWICE DAILY.

Welcome to HCM,
You are having severe gum disease and this is very common problem and awareness about teeth and gums is very less, please understand clove oil is no treatment for Pyrrhoea.
You have to visit a Dentist and if required a Periodontist.
Get examined by a good Dentist and if required get your full mouth Xray known as OPG
(Orthopantogram). Once abnormality is confirmed and if you have any diseased teeth they will require treatment like RCT or extraction depending on condition.
If you have mild gum disease a proper ultrsonic scaling would help to some extent if it is severe then a flap gum surgery would be required by a Periodontist.
If you have any deficiencies he/she will prescribe you medication then condition of your gum may improve.
Even after all treatment you will have to take care of teeth with proper brushing and mouth wash and dental flossing .
Take care
Good luck.

Thanks for writing in.
I read your query,i would like to tell you that pyorrhea is because lots of deposits in the oral cavity due to poor oral hygiene.
In this condition gums become sore and bleeds after or without brushing.
If untreated may damage the teeth and supporting structures resulting loss of teeth.
So i will suggest you visit a dentist in your area and get the scaling done as soon as possible.
And follow all the given instructions after scaling.
Nothing to get worried,meanwhile you can perform warm saline/betadine mouth wash gargles 2-3 time a day.
Take Care

Welcome to HCM
I would like to tell you that treatment of pyorrhea doesn't include clove oil application.Rather you should go for scaling & try to maintain proper oral hygiene.
Regularly brush your teeth twice a day. Do flossing & use chlorhexidine mouthwash once daily half an hour after brushing for 15 days.Along with that start with metrogyl-400 twice a day for 5 days.
Consult your dentist for further treatment.

Take Care

it seems you are suffering from severe dental condition known as periodontitis. it is advanced form of clinical condition gingivitis.
this means you have lot of deposits (calculus) in your oral cavity.
t is recommended that you should go for scaling (cleaning of teeth) as soon as possible..... as it may lead to gradual loss of tooth/teeth.
for your ulcers on your tongue, gums & lips you can use DOLOGEL CT this would provide you symptomatic relief.
Stop the use of clove oil immediately

after scaling maintain your oral hygiene by the use of dental floss & brushing twice daily with short circular motion of the brush for better prognosis.
