Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your "third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it. Kindly get it extracted as soon as possible.

Bleeding gums: bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease. Gums and bone are the basic foundation for your teeth. So if any of these are having problems means your support for the teeth is compromised. Routine cleaning proceedure would solve this problem or maybe other modalities of treatment would be nessesary depending on the progress of your gum disease. Please visit your dentist for accurate diagnosis and also to know the stage of your gum disease and for the treatment. Usually the individuals with bleeding gums will not have pain and this stage of the disease gets ignored, which by itself makes it progress towards the higher stage making your treatment more complicated. Please do not self prescribe any medicines. Take it as an emergency and visit your dentist. I hope I clarified your doubt

Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also discontinue the habit of gutka chewing as it will result in repeated staining.

You have joint problem. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person too.

What type of foods should I avoid and prefer after having a root canal treatment recently?
Do NOT Eat or Drink: Crunchy foods such as carrots, corn on the cob or apples, as they could damage the tooth or cause undue pain. Chewy foods such as gum, most breads or candy, like taffy, as it could pull out the temporary filling. Hard foods such as ice or nuts as they could damage the tooth or cause unnecessary pain. Avoid alcohol as it could increase bleeding. Avoid food that is excessively hot as it could increase sensitivity. Also avoid spicy food could cause unnecessary discomfort or sensitivity. DO Eat and Drink: Fruit smoothies Yogurt Ice Cream (without nuts or anything crunchy or chewy) Bananas Mangos Pears Milkshakes Peaches Soup (as long as it does not have anything crunchy or chewy in it) Mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower Oatmeal Cream of wheat Eggs Applesauce Rice pudding Tuna salad Sushi Tofu Thin pastas cut up well (such as angel hair) Pancakes Pudding Hummus Macaroni and cheese Most Indian, Thai and Chinese food providing provided the noodles are thin, the meal is very mildly spiced and there are not any peanut, carrots or other crunchy/hard ingredients

I have pain in my tooth my age is 24years I have used various ointments but they did not work for long what I can do.
Pain in the tooth may involve your tooth itself or there could be infection in the surrounding gums. Do not try self medication. No ointment will provide you permanent relief. Visit a dentist who might take a x ray first and then he should be able to tell you where the problem is and the relevant treatment options.

What Happens During A Routine Dental Check Up

What Happens During A Routine Dental Check Up

No one likes going to a dentist. People fear a toothache, let alone the treatment. Because of this, a lot of people end up in the dentist's chair only when the pain is unbearable and it is too late to save the tooth. Just like we have a routine health check up for the rest of our body, our teeth too need to be looked at by a dentist at regular intervals to spot that cavity right when it starts. A regular visit can also allow a quick clean up to keep your teeth shining white.

Here's what to expect during a routine dental check up:

  1. They'll check your history: Before you actually get to the dentist's chair, your dentist will want to know your entire health background. This is done either by you filling out a detailed form that the receptionist gives you or a junior dentist filling a medical record sheet after asking you questions. You'll specially be asked questions about any pain or symptoms you might be experiencing in your teeth and other things like medications, diabetes, arthritis, pregnancy etc. Each of these problems can have a direct impact on your dental treatment, hence revealing them to your practitioner in advance is very important. Also, be sure to discuss any concerns or anxiety you are experiencing. Most dentists know how to put their patient at ease. All it'll take is a quick chat to put you at ease.
  2. You'll get a cleaning: Just like the car gets a good wash before the mechanic can have a look, your teeth will get a good scrub before your dentist can address any problem areas. Cleaning involves scraping off built up plaque and tartar that collects above and below the gum line before flossing between and around every tooth to remove any plaque or food particles that are clinging on. You may also get a final shiny finish for your pearly whites at the end of the cleaning session.
  3. Your teeth will be examined: Your dentist will now use a metal probe with a small angled mirror to see behind and between teeth and gums, as well as check for the softening of tooth enamel and dentin. If you have a cavity or anything deeper, this is when it will surface. Once the doctor identifies a problem, they suggest the next course of action.
  4. You may get an X-ray: If the doctor finds a problem that needs fixing, he may ask you to take an X-ray to find out how deep the decay is. You'll be asked to bite down on a piece of plastic while the X-ray machine is placed against your cheek. Where possible, you can check if your doctor can do a digital X-ray which emits 90% less radiation.
  5. Results and advice: Based on your X-ray results and overall medical condition, the doctor may recommend various procedures to remove your existing decay and prevent new ones.

Tooth decay and cavities can only be removed by filling or restoration by a dentist. You should eat lot of fibrous food as it also helps to remove plaque / bio-film from the teeth and also avoid sweets, etc at bed time. Avoid snacking in between meals. Brush twice daily and gargle properly after you eat anything.
