Hi, if there is caries or cavity get it filled as early as possible because if cavity grows deeper pulp will expose, you will have more pain and discomfort. And then rct will be only option for you. Painkillers are not for permanent cure.

My teeth having blooding in every morning. What I do for this problem please tells us.

My teeth having blooding in every morning.
What I do for this problem please tells us.
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. 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.

My teeth ary going black its not any bacteria and also have a problem of yellow teeth.

PERIODONTIST, B.D.S.
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
My teeth ary going black its not any bacteria and also have a problem of yellow teeth.
Your teeth are going black means it's due to caries. Don't wait for too long otherwise caries will destroy your teeth. Get it filled by your dentist. The second problem is of yellow teeth which can be due to improper brushing or can be a natural color of your teeth. I am saying natural color means it can be due to more transparency of outer layer of tooth (enamel) or dark yellow color of your second layer (dentin) of your tooth. The treatment for that is bleaching or cleaning along with polishing depending upon severity of yellowness.

Dear lybrate-user, the yellowish lining in your teeth is likely to calculus. Calculus is a hard substance that forms on or between the teeth due to inappropriate/incorrect cleaning. Although you are brushing regularly, but the hardened deposits can be only be removed once you get professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist. This hard substance may also be accompanied by brownish stains, which usually get deposited due to intake of tea/coffee or due to smoking. Kindly get a thorough cleaning done.

This could be due to swelling in gums. Which sometimes causes spontaneous bleeding while chewing food. Get your teeth cleaning done by professional dentist.

Try using bengal gram flour, honey, lemon, cinnamon powder and water mixture. Make the mixture and apply it on skin and wash it gently after 15 minutes. Try doing this once in a week.
