Question
Hello Doctor,
my mother, 62 yrs, had dental problem for many years , some of the teeths gone by nature and had to pluck the rest 11 nos. one by one on Consultation here with local doctor. The doctor suggested for Full denture and so we gone for it. But she could not go with the dentures, complaining pain. Ultimately she was advised to be without dentures for some days.
But even she is without dentures, continues to have pain and inflamation(burning sensation) on the gum, inner part of lips and tounge. There is as such no cut mark. The gum/tounge appears normal as told by local doctor.
Please suggest what is the cause of this and how to resolve.
With regards,
XXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX.
Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic.
This is Dr.Priyanka tiwari answering your query.

I have read your query and understand your concern. As far as painful and inflammed gums of your mother is concerned this can be due to Nutritional deficiency of Vitamin B12 or Vitamin C, ulceration, or Medication induced.
For this i would suggest her few remedies to resolve this.
- Apply ointment containing lignocaine like stolin Gumpaint gel or Dento gel on gums two to three times a day.
- Do warm salt rinses 3 to 4 times a day.
- Take mutivitamin supplements by consulting with local doctor.
- Avoid eating hot and spicy food. Take soft diet.

Hope this will help you.
If you have further query i will be happy to help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome again.

I have suggested you Gumpaint. No, it is not hexigel /mucopain combination.
Gumpaint is gum astringent which strengthen her gums and reduced inflammation and pain. You can take Hiora Gum paint of Himalaya or stolin gumpaint.
I have also advised you for nutritional supplement that will be helpful for her.
As you are asking about specialist doctor you can consut Prosthodontist for treatment.

Hope this will help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

If she is taking vitamin A to Z supplement that is good. You can also give her additional vitamin C supplement. Give her healthy nutritious diet. Add green leafy vegetables daily in her diet.
As far as i think gum paint can give her relief and reduce inflammation and pain.
You can go for Denture procedure after few days if she feel better after these measures. I will also suggest you to go for Soft liner denture. As soft liner will reduce pain and inflammation and give soft cushion effect on her gums.

Thanks
Regards.
