Yes, what you state indicates that your last molar is impacted and is obstructed by the 2nd molar in its eruption. If not extracted, it will keep on causing psin and trouble repeatedly.

Dear Lybrate user, you have deep dental caries or infection in your one side teeth which are causing pain. You need RCT or extraction of your carious or infected tooth. Please consult to dentist for clinical diagnosis & needful treatment.

Has x-ray for last tooth, the wisdom tooth being taken for the left side, tooth no 38. Without looking at the x-rays, it is very difficult to access the clinical situation though. If the tooth no 38 is impacted, then it can induce pressure which can again cause pain. Also if possible, then you can send a copy of the x-rays over to us for evaluation. Good luck.

There are many reasons your gums could bleed.

In some cases, bleeding gums can be a sign of gingivitis, the early stage of periodontal disease. If your gums bleed easily or bleed when you brush, talk to your dentist about your oral health. Gingivitis is reversible and preventable.

Some pregnant women develop a condition known as “pregnancy gingivitis,” an inflammation of the gums that can cause swelling and tenderness. Gums also may bleed a little when brushing or flossing.
If you take blood thinners, these medications may cause your gums to bleed. Contact your physician if the bleeding does not stop quickly. Your gums could also be bleeding if you brush too hard. Use an extra-soft or soft-bristled toothbrush when brushing your teeth.

If your gums bleed regularly or enough to worry you, make an appointment with your dentist. It could be a sign that something else is wrong.

Always remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day and schedule regular dental visits.

Sensitivity can b due to abrasion. You can use desensitizing tooth paste for time being. And for permanent solution you need to get fillings done.

Oil Pulling - Miracle or Fad?

Oil Pulling - Miracle or Fad?

After multiple patients have asked us about the authenticity of oil pulling as a technique, here's what we have to say:

There is no denying all of us wait for a miracle cure to that terrible disease called dental decay. Much of a dentists or a dental hygienists time goes into answering the question,

why do cavities happen? or how do I prevent cavities?

While people usually assume the answer is brushing and flossing there are some lesser known ancient techniques and some ultramodern gadgets that have contributed to our arsenal of options to keep your mouth healthy.

Oil pulling being one of them has been in the limelight of late.

What is oil pulling?

This oral therapy is a type of ayurvedic medicine that dates back 3, 000 years. It involves swishing approximately 1 tablespoon of oil typically coconut, sesame, or sunflower oil in semisolid form (as shown in the pic) in your mouth for about 20 minutes and then spitting it out.

Start with just 5 minutes a day. Twenty minutes of swishing is a long time, and while the longer you pull, the more bacteria you'll remove, 5 or 10 minutes will still offer some benefit.

A gentle swishing, pushing, and sucking the oil through the teeth is all that's required

Don't swallow. if you find it hard not to, you likely have too much oil in your mouth, spit it out and try again with a smaller amount. just discard the used oil into the nearest cup or trash can.

Why oil pulling? how does it work?

Recent studies show that oil pulling helps against gingivitis, plaque, and microorganisms that cause bad breath.

How? most microorganisms inhabiting the mouth consist of a single cell, cells are covered with a lipid, or fatty, membrane, which is the cell's skin. When these cells come into contact with oil, a fat, they naturally adhere to each other.

Which oil?

Use coconut oil. While you can get the same bacteria-fighting benefits with sesame or sunflower oil, coconut oil has the added benefit of lauric acid, which is well-known for its anti-microbial agents. Also, a recent study found that coconut oil may help prevent tooth decay.

coconut and sunflower oil aren't the only oils with dental health benefits. For irritated, inflamed gums, rub a little vitamin e oil directly on the surface. It's rich in antioxidants, easily absorbed, and helps regenerate healthy gum tissue.

Additional benefits


Reducing decay
Whitening teeth by keeping clean and smooth surfaces that do not lodge food.
Eliminates bad breath
Preventing gum infections caused by harmful bacteria in the mouth


Expert tip

It doesn't reverse the effects of tooth decay, but it's a great supplemental therapy to reduce the bacterial count in the mouth thereby decreasing the likelihood of decay and other dental and systemic diseases.

The only disclaimer we would want to put in is


Do not ingest or swallow the oil in all your enthusiasm and,
Don't skip brushing and flossing. Oil pulling should never replace routine dental visits and traditional home oral care.


While oil pulling can't change your life or make you never need to go to a dentist again -try it for yourself, if it reduces your chances of decay and maybe even helps you ace your next dental visit with no new cavities.

We say thumbs up! pull away!

Please try this safe and natural practice and let us know how you find it in the comments section.

Hi lybrate-user. Most likely, the tooth which is aching has a long-standing cavity. It is quite possible that the tooth may require root canal treatment, which will serve as a permanent solution to your problem. For now, in case you have severe pain, you can take any pain killer that suits you, or keep a clove for a few minutes near the affected tooth. However, these remedies may only temporarily relieve your pain. I advise you to visit the dentist at the earliest and get the tooth checked before the condition worsens.

What is mandibular prognathism how it is treated what are symptoms of it, how we can treat this type of diseases?

Its a condition where your lower jaw is forward then your upper jaw. To treat it if patient is in growing age around 6-12 years can be treated with myo-functional appliances or if patient age is more than that than after 18 years orthognathic surgery with braces is the treatment.
