I just discovered a hairline crack in my front tooth HELP? I am really upset about this. I'm 23 years old and today I put down the mirror and looked at my teeth and the light from the sun illuminated the crack in my tooth. It appears to go from the top to the bottom. Right now I can't see it unless I look at it in bright light or if I look at it very closely in the mirror but I m worried Will it get worse and discolor inside the crack? What could have caused this? Will my tooth eventually try to split apart? The crack is down the middle. Is there anything to repair this? Thank you in advance.

First by clinical examination, dentist will identify whether its is normal anatomy of enamel (sometimes) or actual crack. If there is normal anatomy it will not worse the condition. And we can mask it with laminate or else. If actual crack is there then also according to crack involvement treatment can be carried out. Thank you.

Do not get disturbed by this. Their are certain situations where crowns are made in such fashion that it do not contact gums to make cleaning better but I do not think that it is done intentionally. Speak to your doctor. He will surely do things for your comfort. Take care.

Ulcers in the mouth may result from irregular sleep and diet habits. Malnutrition also is a cause. Genetic factors also contribute which result in cycles of ulcers round the year. Eat balanced diet. Take any vitamin supplements for a month. Gargle your mouth with warm salt water whenever you have ulcers.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

Hello lybrate-user your teeth is sensitive to cold, that means either your teeth are having cavities or they are having deposits causing to the root surface to get exposed leading to sensitivity to cold, or you are practicing wrong brushing technique, you are doing harsh brushing causing the upper protective layer that is enamel to wear off leading exposure of dentinal tubules causing sensitivity to cold. If there is cavity, or cervical abrasions go for fillings, if cavity is deep enough causing pulpal exposure, you might b needing root canal treatment. And if deposits are there, go for scaling (professional cleaning). To slove these problem please visit dentist.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Thanks for your question. 1) bleeding gums for a prolonged time may be due to gum inflammation mainly gingivitis.(depending upon its grade and severity it may be of several types). 2) all we know that if our oral hygiene is poor it may cause infection in our gum and surrounding teeth. Bleeding gum is a infection of gingiva caused by various bacterial species depending upon its severity. 3) oral hygiene maintenance is the 1st line treatment followed by oral prophylaxis (scaling) and regular tooth brushing particularly at night. Use 0.12% chlorhexidine m/w regularly twice a day initially.

Hello doctor. Very genuine question sir. The fracture of the front tooth or teeth are more prone if the teeth are placed more front than usual making it more susceptible for the impact. This has to be corrected by repositioning the upper front teeth slightly behind than the current position, which is more harmonious to the rest I the complement of the teeth. The treatment usually us orthodontics (braces). But in any case of the trauma has already occurred then the best option wud be combination of braces as well as cosmetic recontouring of the teeth. I hope I answers your doubt sir. If anymore please feel free to contact

Don't worry. You can wait for some more time after which you can get an x-ray done from a dentist to see its development. Make sure, she doesn't keep her thumb or finger over it frequently.
