How to solve the cavity problem?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist,
Cavity or caries is a progressive process. Once it starts it can't be stopped. You should go for an x-ray. This will help to find out the extent of the cavity. If cavity is in outer layer filling will be done. And if it reaches to pulp rct will be the option.

Hi doctors, my mother has a problem that when she gets into deep sleep at night. Water fills her mouth and then it bursts and then she has to take long breaths and then cough lasts for 2-3 mins. This happens when she is deep asleep midnight or early morning what kind of prob is this? she has symptoms of fatigue and has a lesion in the throat. Tests say that lesion is not a problem. What can be its cure?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
What lesion does she have on throat? salivation may increase due to certain nerve stimulation in certain patients. Is she taking any medication for any other known disease like bp etc? medications could alter the flow of saliva in mouth.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. You may consult me in person.

Even when one brushes the teeth twice a day and rinses the mouth after every food, whats the reason for cavity?

Sir, its necessary that when you brush your teeth food debris get removed. There is no fun of brushing if debris are still there. So important is right techniques as wrong method to brush your may also lead to teeth damage.

Hi, it could be an abscess due to gum or tooth infection, if tooth is decay, you have to go for root canal treatment, if only gum infection, you get it cleaned with dentist.

You can sent an opg of your teeth then I can answer correctly. Paste is not substitute for proper dental treatment. Any the problem can be solved if you can sent photos of your teeth and gums.

I have a leg pain what I do doctor and I have a teeth pain also doctor what I do doctor.

I have a leg pain what I do doctor and I have a teeth pain also doctor what I do doctor.
Hi lybrate-user, the toothache you are suffering from may be due to any of the following causes 1. Cavity/tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture/broken tooth 3. An improper filling 4. Gum disease the most common cause is a cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. I suggest that that you consult me privately on lybrate, so that I can provide more specific answers. You will be able to send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.
