You should consider getting a professional cleaning done by the dentist. Simply changing brand of tooth paste is not enough.

Since you mentioned black layer, brushing alone will not be helpful. You need to undergo oral prophylaxis by a dentist. Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and get a thorough dental check-up done.

Eating supari (betel nut) or tabacco causes development of condition known as oral submucous fibrosis which is also precancerous sign so better consult dentist as soon as possible so that he/ she can do proper screening of your sign and advice you proper exercises for your limited mouth opening.

Get scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day and use listerine mouth wash if improvement then continue or later on you may have to go for deep curettage of gums and gum treatment if required.

You may have periodontal problem or carious teeth or attrited teeth. If your prblem in periodontal then you can do scaling guided by a dental surgeon. If you have carious / attrited teeth then you can do root canal treatment or crown only depends upon condition of teeth.

On upper left side on last side I have extra teeth. I was touching it with tongue and was cleaning there with finger. But from three days I have little bit pain there in muscle. I am confused is it muscle pain irritation there or tooth pain but its not too much. When I am touching outside mouth near zygomatic facial muscle it pains inside upside the extra tooth. When I chew something it irritates that part there. Tell me what is this please.

Hello It is advisable that you kindly visit your nearby dentist ASAP to get a proper clinical examination done so that exact cause of pain may be determined. Pain you are experiencing may be due to many reasons; caries in that extra tooth you are describing, that extra tooth putting pressure on some nerve are to name some. The dentist may also advise you to go for some x-rays, which will help in diagnosing the actual reason of pain and further eliminating that reason. Kindly follow the advice and put an end to your sufferings.

Hello lybrate-user, I have read your problem. As far as foul smell from mouth is concerned this can be due to some reasons which include poor oral hygiene (deposition of food in subgingival areas of gums), food intake like intake of milk containing products, garlic, onion, drug induced, medical conditions like sinusitis. Do not be worried so much I will suggest you to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily. Do chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly.

Never neglect tooth sensitivity related problems. Trust your dentist for proper solution & treatment rather than directly using antisensitivity toothpastes those which are shown on television ads.

Tooth staining is due to oil and turmeric content of food. You cant avoid it but you can minimize it by regular rinsing after meals. Also you can start a mouthwash and an effective toothpaste for faster results.

Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) - Know About Its Treatment

Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) - Know About Its Treatment

Sudden tooth pain is usually a sign of cavities or dental caries. This is the most common form of oral disease that affects people across the world. A cavity can affect a person at any age. Caries can be categorized under two headings: pit and fissure caries and surface caries. The former usually affect the horizontal planes of the molars and the back planes of the teeth in front. Surface caries are usually found at the joints between two teeth and the gum line.

Dental caries are formed over a period of time. The earlier they are addressed, the less the damage caused and the less painful it is. Bacteria is the root cause of this problem. This bacteria causes sugar in your food to turn into acid. When the acid and bacteria are combined together, it forms plaque. This plaque dissolves the minerals in the enamel coating of a tooth and creates pits. These get larger with time and gradually the softer dentin layer below the enamel also gets decayed. This is when the patient feels a toothache. If the tooth is not addressed at this stage, the roots of the tooth can also get decayed leading to the tooth needing to be extracted.

Dental caries usually have no symptoms until the damage is done. The only way to diagnose it in its early stages is by a dental examination. Hence, it is essential to schedule dental exams every six months. If you skipped a dental exam, a toothache or increased sensitivity to hot or cold food can be taken as a sign of a cavity.

The treatment for a cavity depends on the extent of the damage caused.

A filling is the most common form of treatment for a cavity. This involves the removal of decayed tooth material and the use of a material such as silver, gold, porcelain or composite resin to replace it.

Your dentist may also choose to fit a crown on the tooth. This is done is there is extensive tooth damage and only a limited tooth structure is left. As with a filling, the decayed part of the tooth is removed and a crown made of gold or porcelain is fitted over the tooth.

If the cavity reaches an advanced stage where the nerve within the tooth dies; your dentist may want to perform a root canal. This involves the removal of the inner part of the tooth along with all the pulp and nerve cells. A sealant is then filled into the emptied areas.

You probably require a scaling done. Deposits and plaque in the mouth can cause bad breath. Brush twice daily, floss, use non alcohol containing mouth wash. Clean your tongues upper and side surfaces daily. Some medications can cause saliva output to decrease and worsen bad breath. And obviously some foods too like onion and garlic!
