I have a huge pain in my teeth and I had done a scan also to my tooth which option will be better whether shall I do root canal or remove the teeth.

Root canal treatment is the best option where you can save our own teeth. It includes removal of infected pulp and restoring it with medicated material. It is the permanent solution for decayed tooth.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with T. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. You may consult me in person. 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 sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.

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.

Make it a point to visit a dentist & get the scaling & polishing done every 6 months. This little investment of time & money can save you from loads of dental problems & accompanying bills in future. Moreover you can save yourself from wearing dentures in old age.

My teeth hurt for a long time. I can not eat hot food. When I eat the hot food then teeth sirasira. What should I do now?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If discomfort lasts only moments, sensitivity generally does not signal a serious problem. It may be caused by; a small area of decay in a tooth, a loose filling or an exposed root surface resulting from gum recession and possibly toothbrush abrasion. This sensitivity should last no longer then a few days; however, if decay has recently been removed or a filling or crown recently has been placed, a tooth may take a week or two to settle. Mild pain relievers like acetaminophen, aspirin or ibuprofen should help. If the pain persists or worsens, see your dentist for root canal treatment.

My tooth has been bleeding every time I brush my teeth and spitting what could be the reason please help me out.

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Bleeding in gums is definitely due to infection. Along with scaling you need to change your brush type and brushing method i. E. If you are brushing harshly with hard bristle tooth brush it will definitely cause trauma to the inflamed gums. After you finished with your scaling i. E. After 24 hours you can start with warm saline rinses. Warm saline rinses means take warm water and 1 spoon of salt. Follow this type of rinsing at least for 5-7 days almost 5-6 times in a day.
