I would advise you to go for an intra oral xray to check whether you are having any decay with pulpal involvement. Severe toothache can be caused due to hidden decays which are deep enough to reach the nerve tissue in the tooth.

Take homoeopathic medicine Merc Sol 30 1-2 doses at the interval of 1 hour. See if it helps. Ideally it is more productive if the medicine is prescribed considering the detailed case study.

Dental Fillings: Everything You Need to Know

Dental Fillings: Everything You Need to Know

Most of us suffer from some or the other dental problem in our lifetime. Majority of these problems are attributed to tooth decay. Tooth decay or cavities occur when bacteria living in the mouth produce a strong acid that slowly deteriorates the health of the teeth. If left untreated such decays will lead to infection, causing extreme pain and eventually tooth loss. To prevent this, dental fillings are done. Fillings are also used to repair broken or cracked teeth. Here is everything you need to know about fillings. 

What is a Dental Filling?
A dental filling is one of the most commonly used methods that can restore the normal functioning and shape of the tooth, which may have been damaged due to tooth decay. These fillings close off the spaces where bacteria can set in and cause further decay. This protects the surrounding tissues too as food and bacteria accumulated in cavities can harm gums too. 

Procedure of Dental Filling: 
Before a filling session, the dentist will carry out proper assessment of your teeth. Dental X-rays may be used to ascertain the extent of the damage. This can be followed by a procedure with which the dentist will clean out the affected area of the tooth. After the decay has been cleaned out, the cavity will be filled with desired filling material. 

Types of Dental Fillings: 
There are various kinds of dental fillings. Let us find out a little bit about each kind. 

  1. Gold Filling: These are made in a laboratory before they are cemented in place. These fillings are known to last over two decades thanks to the fact that they are tolerated exceptionally well by the gum tissue. This is also an expensive option, which will require multiple visits to the dental clinic. 
  2. Amalgam Filling: These are also known as silver fillings and are usually an alloy containing tin, silver, and other metals, which bond well with the teeth. Many Dentists today are advising against the use of these fillings as it has been proved that mercury content in these fillings can harm the body.
  3. Composite Resin Filling: These kinds of fillings are matched to the colour of your teeth for a natural appearance. These are the most commonly uses fillings today as they fulfill most of the criteria we would desire from a dental filling. 
  4. Porcelain Filling: These are known as inlays or onlays. These fillings are used in restorations where a large part of the tooth structure has been lost. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist and ask a free question.

Hello, swelling and bleeding from gums could be because of deposists on your teeth or food lodged between your teeth, visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day, rinse after every meal and floss regularly.

I am 21 year old, I recently had severe tooth ache and dentist after x ray said, its bcz 1 of the wisdom teeth which is half grown outside gums and unable to come out completely as there's no space for it. He also said that I need to get all 4 teeth removed some day as there's no space and will cause much pain further. I was said its not immediately necessary to remove tooth but I can go for it when the pain gets worse. But surprisingly after few days the tooth ache has completely gone by itself and I have no other dental problem .what does this mean? Did my tooth grow normal? Do I need to take an x ray to confirm it inspite of no pain at all.

The wisdom tooth errors anytime after 18 years. If the xray that you have taken shows the tooth in an abnormal position (other than straight upright, please have the tooth extracted by the dentist. The previous episode of pain one reason could be that there must be food particles stick between tooth and gums. If the tooth position was not normal it is likely that it will never come up straight. Please take an Xray to confirm. You can also send me a picture of the xray to help you better.

Some oral diseases do not get detected until they reach their mature stage. Visiting a dentist at regular intervals would mean keeping constant tabs on your oral health.

We helped this lady recoup her badly effected teeth due to chronic gum problems with multiple implants and at the same time transformed her smile to an attractive one and that makes her look at lot younger than her age.

Dear lybrate user, tongue infection/inflammation/burning can be due to several reasons like dry mouth, nutritional/vitamin deficiencies, bacterial/viral/fungal infections, anemia, dehydration etc. Consult your dentist for a checkup to know the exact cause. Drink plenty of fluids and water, consume fruits and vegetables, avoid fried & spicy foods and pay attention to good oral hygiene.
