I have a cute on the end of my tongue soon after I smoked meth, it has been no more then 2 days and it is white around the area I guess it is infected? How do I fix this, I have only tried mouth wash

I have a cute on the end of my tongue soon after I smoked meth, it has been no more then 2 days and it is white around the area I guess it is infected? How do I fix this, I have only tried mouth wash

Agree: Agree with dr. Fowler and would like to add that this could simply be a burn injury. Meth is extremely damaging to you mouth, especially to the teeth. I recommend that you get an evaluation by a general dentist for your tongue and to assess other problems that may be developing before you loose a large number of teeth to decay.

As stated before, the greater concern is what the meth is doing to your body in a general sense. This drug is so addictive that you will need assistance stopping. Seek professional care for assistance in stopping and to obtain a complete physical exam to make sure you have no other problems medically. ...Read more

I've been having a constant salty vinegar taste on my tongue. I don't use whitening toothpaste or mouth wash, and I drink lots of water. What's wrong?

Altered taste...: Unusual taste sensations can be caused by many, many things. Even if your toothpaste is not a whitening toothpaste, this or your mouthwash could be causing your altered taste. These sensations are often caused by medication, diet, poor oral hygiene or even vitamin deficiencies. Brush your tongue with a toothbrush or tongue brush every day.

I bit my tongue 3 weeks ago and sustained a cut that has not healed and does not even show a sign of healing. What can I do? I use listerine mouth wash and/or hydrogen peroxide..

See your dentist!: Tongues normally heal quickly. 3 weeks is way to long to consider continuing to treat yourself. I would not use the listerine as this is probably irritating the area. Hydrogen peroxide can leave you vulnerable to fungal infection in the mouth as well. I strongly recommend letting a dentist look at your tongue and give you the proper treatment. ...Read more

Trauma: Most likely trauma to the gums from improper flossing or brushing technique. If it doesn't happen all the time, the mouthwash use is most likely coincidental.

What is the different between antimicrobial mouth wash and antiseptic mouth wash?

Inhibits vs. Killing: Antibacterial products kill bacteria, or hinder their reproduction. Antiseptic substances inhibit the growth and reproduction of many microorganisms, including bacteria, as well as fungi, protozoa, and viruses.

Rinses don't whiten: There are several types of mouth washes. Fluoride mouth rinses help to prevent cavities and can reduce teeth sensitivity. Mouth rinses for healthy gums help prevent plaque attachment to teeth and reduce gingivitis. However, mouth rinses for teeth whitening have questionable effectiveness- 30 seconds to 1 minute in the mouth is not long enough for these rinses to actually whiten the teeth. ...Read more

Here are my choices.: Really, any toothpaste as long as it has Fluoride in it. The rest is usually personal preference to taste. Tartar control toothpastes have been proven to make a difference in the ability of tartar to form. Soft bristle toothbrushes are best for getting in between and around teeth better. Again, mouthwashes are personal preference. Oxygenating rinses are more effective against bacteria. ...Read more
