My teeth's cavity make black hole in my teeth. Can I do filling on my cavity teeth?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Homeopath,
Well first of all maintain your oral hygiene. Brush atlst twice daily. At night brush with baking soda and rinse your mouth with lemon water. With this you need proper long term homoeopathic treatment for permanent solution of your problem. So you can contact me.

Gud morning sir, I'm facing a problem i. E. Bad smell come from mouth, I don't know why it happens but I tried many tooth pastes n in a day 2 times etc but there is no charge and my teeth looking good n white.

MDS - Periodontics, BDS
Dentist, Ranchi
Many times white teeth have hidden gum infections or carious teeth. Get your thorough oral check up done. Meanwhile: maintain good oral hygiene. Beside routine brushing do water rinsing after every snacks or meal avoid such food causing mal odor like onion, garlic, etc get scaling done 6 monthly can use mouthwash.

I am suffering from tooth sensitivity receding gums exposing tooth dentin visible in front lower incisors. * Teeth looks a little transparent and cracked but otherwise normally strong. * Mouth feels dry. * Mild burning sensation throughout the jaw and gums. 5 years back I had accidental cigarette butt/ash ingestion (nicotine poisoning. I had these symptoms since then. Is nicotine poisoning responsible? I do had aggressive brushing habit or is it because of that? What kind of treatment will be required.

MDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Dear, from what little information I could gather from your letter it looks like the recession of your gums and sensitivity are both related to your aggressive brushing habit. Excessive force applied during brushing causes abnormal wear of the insulating layer of teeth called enamel, as a result the underlying sensitive layer called dentin gets exposed. Recession of gums due to wrong brushing causes a tissue on root surface of teeth called cementum to be exposed & this is another common cause of sensitivity. I would recommend correcting your brushing technique, using a soft bristled brush with desensitizing paste and avoiding citrus fruits for a while. Mild burning sensations that you are complaining of, could be due to gingivitis, I would suggest that you consult a periodontist to get definitive diagnosis as some conditions can only be diagnosed in the clinic. Symptoms of acute nicotine poisoning will not last beyond a few days so don't worry about it.

Get your heart checked up for coronary ischemia, by angiography. Very early angina pain gets projected there. If it is normal, then treatment of neuralgia is justifiable.

I am 30 years old and my teeth is not good their is so many irritation and sensevity but can I do to solve my problem.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
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.

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

Hi lybrate-user, do not spit jitna bhi thook aaye andar lekar jao. Smell ya khaane ko dkh saliva ka zyaada banna ek normal cheez hai. Kucchh ghabrane wali baat nahi hai.

You have got tmj (temperomandibular joint) problem. Generally seen in speakers lawyers and teaching faculty. Most important reason is loss of natural contact of teeth like if you have got any of your posterior tooth removed there are chances of tmj prob. To understand better you need consult a dentist he will examine and tell you the reason why are you getting this prob. Generally we advise palaatative treatment which includes few join exercises and muscle relaxant if required. You can do 1thing apply hot and cold compression in front of ear. 1st apply hot pack and open your mouth and close n then cold pack do it frequently whenever you are free.

Is it necessary to brush twice a day. It's hard to take out time for brushing. I wish there was a better way than wasting 2x5 mins for brushing (day and night)

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.
