Hello! I'm 22 year old, I have undergone root canal treatment for my two front teeth (upper). I have caps on them now.

You can take painkillers thrice a day n apply ice pack on the upper lip area outside your teeth for temporary relief. You have to get your teeth x ray to access the damage. The pain can be due to trauma to the surrounding tissue which will subside eventually or it can be due to nerve damage in tooth for which you will need root canal treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, This problem at this age is very strange, you really need to visit a prosthodontist along with an opg. I suspect you with a TMJ disorder. If cured at this stage, it will help you later in life.

Hello Good that you left pan masala but did you see a dentist after that for removal of stains. Also the top portion of teeth have enamel but the bottom part of teeth which are inside the gums lack enamel and are porous. The stains get absorbed in it hence reddish colour. If you want white teeth then after scaling get bleaching done.

How to remove stein caused by chewing of gutkha for the past 2-3 years?
First you have to quit the habit of gutka as it causes so many problems in mouth like oral cancer, submucous fibrosis, leukoplakia, periodontal and gum diseases. Go for scaling and bleaching. Apply mixture of lemon juice and soda bi carb and rub it on the stains. Use this once in a week.

मुंह के छालों से बचने के घरेलू उपचार–

शहद में मुलहठी का चूर्ण मिलाकर इसका लेप मुंह के छालों पर करें और लार को मुंह से बाहर टपकने दें।

मुंह में छाले होने पर अडूसा के 2-3 पत्तों को चबाकर उनका रस चूसना चाहिए।
छाले होने पर कत्था और मुलहठी का चूर्ण और शहद मिलाकर मुंह के छालों परलगाने चाहिए।

अमलतास की फली मज्जा को धनिये के साथ पीसकर थोड़ा कत्था मिलाकर मुंह में रखिए। या केवल अमलतास के गूदे को मुंहमें रखने से मुंह के छाले दूर हो जाते हैं।

अमरूद के मुलायम पत्तों में कत्था मिलाकर पान की तरह चबाने से मुंह के छाले से राहत मिलती है और छाले ठीक हो जाते हैं

you need to visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. this is gum infection which develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth. professional cleaning will remove it along with antibacterial mouth rinses. start using soft bristle brush for a month or two.

This happens due to carious lesion progressing inside the teeth. We need to arrest the progression of that lesion into the mouth. You should start warm saline rinses and also start mouthwash and anticavity toothpaste to eliminate this problem. Brushing at night is very imp for u.

Most traumatic dental injuries occur in children, but people of all ages can be affected. Whether the injury is a result of an automobile accident, a sports mishap, an altercation or a bad fall, the severity and type of injury will determine the treatment necessary.

Sir tooth stains are due to the oil and turmeric content of the food. You cannot prevent staining but you can minimize it by regular rinsing after meals.
