If your toothache is such that you have to take painkillers or tooth pain at night or too sensitive to cold starts paining after cold application then your tooth will require an rct and crown (cap). Smoking will not cause toothache but smoking is otherwise bad for your oral cavity, lungs and overall health.

I'm fed up with my mouth ulser (chala). It caught very frequently and would be very difficult for me eat anything. In summers, it's like hell, throughout summer I would be fighting with this curse. I did have consultation with many local doctors but no benefit. Please advise me please.

Please try to control your urge to eat foods which are spicy or hot. Also you must eat a balanced diet to rule out vitamin deficiency.

If you have consulted any dentist and he/she suggested root canal treatment then definitely go for it by restoring wisdom by root canal t/t you can go for bridge of 4 or 5t eeth as needed otherwise you can remove wisdom tooth and go for implants.

Hi. I have many dental problems. 1) my 2 lower molars are missing due to cavity. I lost them 3 years back. 2) my front teetch is arched outside, so I want to add clip. Smiling is not a good idea for me. 3) my upper pre-molar is decayed, it is paining everyday, pain killers doesnt even reduce the pain. So, now I need either to fill it with amalgam or remove it as well. I need your suggestion. Thank you.

Well, most of us eat or munch on some food or the other throughout the day. So, if you go to bed without brushing at night, a lot of small food particles remain stuck in between your teeth and these may cause cavities. Here is an interesting fact - the bacteria in your mouth never sleep, not even a wink. In fact, they become more active when the levels of saliva, the natural protector in your mouth, become low.

Only morning brushing means your mouth would have double the amount of bacteria at night (while sleeping). These bacteria remain in the mouth long enough to act on our teeth which will eventually lead to cavities. The cavities in turn will lead to pain and discomfort, along with decay in the tooth.

Is it good to take medicine regularly for toothache or should I follow something else?

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Hi rocky. This can be durme to various reasons. But for a primary treatment use benzocaine gel on the affected ares half an hour before the meals. Have B-comlex vitamins and lastly do give the ulcers some time and clean oral environment to heal. Avoid the spicy food at oreaent as can have the same after your ulcers heal. Regards.

Bleaching is procedure for teeth whitening. But you need to get dental check up wether teeth whitening is required or the yellowish stains can be removed by scaling alone. Procedure to get a healthy n bright smile is, scaling & polishing & bleaching.

My lips remain chapped always from last 12 years. and my corners of mouth are cracked from both sides that's too from last 12 years. Please suggest me.

BDS, MDS Prosthodontics

You have most like a vitamin deficiency (B group and E) along with a fungal (Candidal) infection. Since your age is showing 90 years I am assuming you either have no teeth or very few teeth which results in something called 'loss of vertical dimension' that is face height decreases and saliva drooling occurs. So you need both dental and medical treatment for this condition. A prosthodontist such as myself can treat your problem well.

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. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

If your wisdom tooth is erupting in abnormal way, it is advised to get it removed. Otherwise maintain good oral hygiene. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water twice daily for relief. And visit the dentist for examination and proper treatment plan.

A healthy tooth brush is equal to a healthy mouth. Thoroughly rinsing your tooth brush daily after brushing will keep it germ-free and healthy and let it air-dry before using it again.
