Dental issues are certainly very annoying. Ignoring them is like inviting pain and torture, especially if the issue becomes too severe with time. But don’t panic because you can yourself treat some dental issues at their early stages before you hop across to your dentist.

Lost teeth

You need to act pretty fast in case you lose any one of your teeth. Rinse your lost tooth quickly and place it again to its original position. Bite it down, placing a soft cloth between your teeth. Your roots accept your tooth back if you place it properly. Visit a dentist immediately.

Sensitive teeth

Open tissues that get exposed to dirt cause sensitive teeth. You can use a soft toothbrush to avoid the painful outcomes by not brushing very hard. Make sure that you refrain from using tartar-control, whitening, and baking soda toothpaste as they can be coarse in nature and also contain phosphates that make your teeth sensitive.

Canker sore

Apply vegetable oil on a cotton ball and hold it against your canker sore for about 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat the same procedure about three or four times a day. It is a simple and nice treatment, wherein the oil covers the sore reducing itchiness and irritation.

Burned palate

A burned palate is not very painful, therefore you tend to ignore it. However, that makes your tissues thinner and can invite many infections. To avoid that, you can apply a corticosteroid paste to the affected area. The paste boosts healing and creates a protective coating on the burn.

Burned tongue

Take a cup of warm water and add some salt to it and rinse your mouth with it, if you are getting a burning sensation on your tongue. Salt forces the infection to the surface of the tissue in which it is present. From there it is eliminated from your body. Warm salt water speeds up healing and soothes your tongue. The presence of an acidic substance in your mouth promotes the growth of bacteria and other oral problems, which are neutralized by salt.

Burned tongue

Your jaw muscles demand more comfort when your jaws become sore. In such cases, you should move your jaw around constantly. Make sure that you sleep on your back instead of facedown as this will relax your jaw and speed up its healing.

Such dental issues can be productively and easily cured at home if treated early. These remedies do not need much effort and can also give you the finest results. However, don’t forget your regular bi-annual visit to the dentist with these tips. These fixes only supplement your dental care plan, not replace it.
