Sometimes there is Post operative soreness at the site /Tooth where the RCT has been done due to the healing of the bone below the tooth. Mostly this settles down within 2 weeks and can be mde better with the help of some anti inflamatory. Report the same to your dentsit and he will surely be able to help you.

Gum disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria called 'PLAQUE. Plaque forms constantly on your teeth. It is important to remove this plaque to avoid gum inflammation (swelling & soreness). If the plaque is not removed, the gum disease will in time, affect the bone under the gums because of that your teeth may gradually become loose.
comman signs of gum disease are-
gum bleeding
loose teeth
receding gums
bad breath.

As you mentioned that you are eating tobacco products you would required cleaning of teeth i. E. Scalling. But it would again stain your teeth if you use tobacco products after cleaning.

Hello, you need to visit the dentist and get an x-ray of the teeth. If there is a cavity, get it filled. If there is infection below the roots of the teeth, root canal treatment needs to be done. If its a wisdom tooth, it would be best if you get it removed.

for external staining, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. this will make you teeth clean n will give it a shine. but if you want further whiteness, go for bleaching.

How much does braces for upper teeth costs? Need to fix only one overlapping tooth.
Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist.

I have a problem of bad breath, but it is not coming from mouth as it's always kept clean. Is this any sign of any digestive tract related problems?

BDS, CDE Endo-Prostho, CDE - Cast Partial & Complete Dentures
Dentist, Pune
Hello, bad breath could be because of digestive problems, it can be because of fasting, not eating for long hours, not drinking enough water, or if you are having acidity problem. It may be because of pungent eatables like garlic. But still get it checked by a dentist for any deposits and get it cleaned.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

There r no homemade remedies for removal of tooth decay. To maintain your teeth health brush twice daily n use a mouthwash. Avoid sticky n sweet food. Limit your frequency of eating to 4-5 times a day. Clean your mouth after eating or drinking anything.
