3 years back I had met with an accident then I lost my 2 tooth after consulting dentist they replaced artificial tooth since then there is no problem. Since 10 days the gum beside the artificial tooth is swelled and causing pain when I followed amoxicillin 250 mg and gargling with hot salt water the pain is reducing and the inflammation also reduced. Can you suggest the problem and prevention.

Is it a removable artificial tooth? if yes then stop wearing it and report to your dentist. In case its fixed teeth then you can not remove the teeth yourself, go to your dentist and ask him to check. And please do not self medicate.

You might be brushing in a wrong way or with a hard bristle toothbrush. Do remember always brush your teeth gently, do not exagerrate. You can get professional cleaning done by a dentist, cleaning is recommended every 6 months and will help you maintain good oral health. You can also learn toothbrushing techniques from your dentist.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Bleeding is usually due to swollen and unhealthy gums. Get scaling done first and then reevaluate. Just get your blood sugar levels checked once according to your age and take care.

You need to discontinue your habit. Teeth whitening will not work if you keep on with your habit. The whitened teeth will discolor eventually. You need to get your teeth cleaned (scaling) and polished. After that if you still feel of getting your teeth more white you can go with bleaching (teeth whitening. Whitener toothpastes donot work and grind your tooth surfaces those are all a marketing gimmick. Only a dentist can get your teeth white properly.

No need to worry sir. The root piece was left behind considering what was best for you. Chances are very slim that it might bother you again once pain and swelling subsides in next 7 days. In many cases root pieces are to be left behind to avoid injury to adjacent vital structures. Though chances are slim of that piece bothering you again, just in case if it bothers later, there are many great dental surgeon who can help you. So relax and enjoy the new year.

IF THE BLEEDING HAS STOPPED THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO UNDERGO DNC, BECAUSE THE PRODUCTS WOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY THRONE OUT OR GET ABSORBED. YOU CAN WAIT FOR ANOTHER 2 WEEKS. WAITING WONT CREATE PROBLEMS

Good afternoon doctor, I am suffering with heavy bad breath and i am in marketing please suggest me. Please advise.
Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

Hai I am 26 years old, in an accident I lost my teeth, I heard that we can regenerate teeth using stemcells of wisdom tooth, is it possible, if it is possible how much the cost will be per tooth. I have already a bridge, but I want natural looking teeth, and I know about dental implants, but I do not want to put artificial things in my mouth.

Hello as per your query a continuous and throbbing toothache radiating to ear and side of the head can be due to tooth infection caused by caries in the oral cavity. In case the toothache is only surrounding the tooth then it will be due to food lodgement in the gums through a cavity between 2 adjacent teeth. Do pay a visit to a dentist.
