I’m having trouble getting rid of thrush in my mouth
Oral thrush is a fungal infection of the mouth that can be difficult to get rid of. If you are having trouble getting rid of thrush in your mouth, there are several steps you can take to help manage the infection. First, it’s important to follow the treatment plan recommended by your dentist, which may include taking antifungal medication or using a medicated mouthwash. It’s also important to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using a tongue scraper to remove bacteria and debris from the tongue. Additionally, you can try some home remedies, such as rinsing your mouth with saltwater or baking soda, or applying coconut oil or yogurt to the affected areas of your mouth. These remedies may help to reduce the symptoms of oral thrush and prevent the infection from spreading. If you are still having trouble getting rid of thrush in your mouth, it’s best to talk to your dentist for further advice and treatment.
Tongue scraper oral thrush
A tongue scraper is a tool that is used to remove bacteria and debris from the surface of the tongue. It is commonly used as part of a daily oral hygiene routine to help maintain fresh breath and a healthy mouth. Tongue scrapers can be particularly useful for people who have oral thrush, which is a fungal infection of the mouth. Oral thrush can cause white patches or coating on the tongue, and scraping the tongue with a tongue scraper can help to remove these patches and reduce the risk of reinfection. It’s important to use a tongue scraper gently and avoid scraping too hard, which can cause irritation or damage to the tongue. It’s also important to clean the tongue scraper after each use to prevent the spread of infection. Talk to your dentist for more information about using a tongue scraper to manage oral thrush.
Oral thrush home remedies
Oral thrush is a fungal infection of the mouth that can cause white patches or coating on the tongue and other areas of the mouth. It is commonly treated with antifungal medication, but there are also some home remedies that may help to manage the symptoms of oral thrush. Some possible home remedies for oral thrush include:
- Saltwater rinse: Mix 1 teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water, and rinse your mouth with the solution several times a day. This can help to kill the fungus and reduce swelling and discomfort.
- Baking soda rinse: Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 cup of warm water, and rinse your mouth with the solution several times a day. Baking soda has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties, and it can help to neutralize the acids in the mouth that can cause irritation and infection.
- Coconut oil: Coconut oil has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties, and it can help to kill the fungus that causes oral thrush. You can swish a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for several minutes, or apply it directly to the affected areas of your mouth.
- Yogurt: Yogurt contains live bacteria that can help to restore the balance of bacteria in the mouth and prevent the growth of fungus. Eating yogurt or applying it directly to the affected areas of your mouth may help to reduce the symptoms of oral thrush.
It’s important to remember that these home remedies are not a substitute for medical treatment, and you should always talk to your dentist if you have oral thrush. Your dentist can prescribe medication to treat the infection and help prevent it from spreading.
Thrush tongue is drinking Pepsi ok?
If you have thrush on your tongue, drinking Pepsi or other sugary drinks may not be the best idea. This is because sugary drinks can feed the fungus that causes thrush, and they can also increase the risk of tooth decay. Additionally, the carbonation in soda can cause irritation or discomfort in the mouth, which can make the symptoms of thrush worse. It’s best to avoid sugary drinks and stick to water or other low-sugar beverages while you are treating thrush. This can help to reduce the growth of the fungus and support your overall oral health. If you are concerned about your diet while you are treating thrush, it’s best to talk to your dentist for personalized advice and recommendations.

I enjoyed your comprehensive article on ultrasound toothbrushes and other articles, but wondered if this site still in operation?
Would love some solutions to this.
I’m looking for a new toothbrush and looking for something that actually can remove tartar (for me and family members) since visiting the dentist has become so costly and there is a shortage to get an appt.
I’ve been looking at the innovative technologies like ultrasound and others…
And am trying to decide between:
Emmi-Dent ( I don’t know if you have any test compares with the crystal being in the brushhead?)
ION – SEI (Ionic technology which I recently purchased for my mum. I tried a separate head and it really did give a dentist clean feeling… even waking up in the morning felt sufficiently cleaner without any film, but I didn’t use it with just water, like the toothbrush claims is all it needs to clean)
Silk’n Toothwave (uses a patented radiofrequency of a higher range than MEGASONEX and perhaps Emmi-dent too, with 3.3MHz; 3W ±20% emitted. And states that it belongs to the spectrum of ultrasound)
I recently commented on the site Electric Teeth on their piece about Ultrasound toothbrushes, but was disappointed that they couldn’t really help out
Hello, the site is active but it’s a side project so it’s growing slowly and this article on oral thrush is not ready yet. The bad news is that no toothbrush can remove tartar, so dental visits may still be necessary. But a sonic or ultrasonic toothbrush and frequent brushing (which is more important than the toothbrush itself) should be effective at removing plaque, and frequent plaque removal will certainly lower the chances for tartar deposits to appear. To be honest it does not matter which toothbrush you will choose, it’s rather how well you can brush and how often you do it. We recommend Megasonex, but cheaper Oclean sonic toothbrushes will do just fine. Another way to go is to try OralB oscillatory toothbrushes – sume studies show they may be more effective at removing plaque. Remember that dental scaler ultrasound power is much greater that a toothbrush, which is why the toothbrush will not be able to remove tartar/calculus from your teeth. If you have any other questions just let us know. Oh, and we have not tested ION or Silk’n Toothwave so we cannot say much about these.
