I am 22 years old. I am having teeth pain and some teeth are yellow in colour inner side of the teeth. How can overcome this.

Dentist, Secunderabad
Tooth pain could be due to various reasons, the most common being dental caries that forms a cavity within the tooth exposing the underlying nerve. Treating the tooth is the best option for which you need to consult a dentist and emergency treatment includes to run a course of antibiotics and pain killers. But not all pain killers work on tooth pain so please avoid self medication. You can consult me for this.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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. 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.

The toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing 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. Send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem. I will also be able to check the order/alignment of your teeth. Hoe that helps.

Research have proved that gastric (stomach) problems also cause bad breath, so get your gums cleaned by a dentist nearby and have good food habits and visit a physician for gastric problems.

Hello . I hope that you really don't bleed from you r scalp. Scalp in medical term refers to the skin and connective tissue covering your head. So o suppose you r bleeding from your gums. If that's the problem don't worry its treatable. Clips won't have bad effect on your teeth neither will cleaning. Make sure you keep your teeth clean and brush 2 times a day and use mouth was regularly. Visit your dentist and get a cleaning done.

Hello There are no side effects of scaling. They are safe and helpful. Sensitivity comes when some kind of deposit is removed from the gum or teeth because that part becomes free for environment and can sense the touch of air and surroundings. It will last for few days and then will adapt the normal temperature. Regards

Since you are also getting fever, chills and body pains, I would suggest don't take it lightly or assume it is a normal due to removal of wisdom tooth. Headache may be incidental to the fever and tooth removal.

My teeth's are started to covered with black layer coating near gums. Please tell me what to do?
If black layer coating is on teeth then you have to go to the dentist he will remove it by cleaning called scaling of teeth. And if black layer is on the gums then it is called pigmentation. This pigmentation is having another treatment consult to a dentist.

I am Sufferings from last night and feel paid teeth since morning what we will do?
Tooth pain is a symptom of decay in tooth, please visit your dentist as soon as possible. He will take an xray and determine severity of the decay. If the decay is less then he will remove the decayed part and reatore it with a filling. If the decay has reached the innermost tissue he will ask you to go for root canal treatment followed by crown placement/cap. If there is no chance of saving the tooth he will ask you to get the tooth pulled out/extracted. If you want you can consult with me privately so that I can tell you a treatment plan. I will require some x-rays and photographs of the tooth for the same. Have a nice day! keep smiling!

Hello, you need to visit the dentist and get it checked. Get an x-ray done. If there is a cavity, get it filled. If there is infection to the root of the tooth, you need to get it treated. Then get a crown placed over it.

Dear lybrate user, bleeding from gums on brushing or eating indicated poor oral hygiene and gum disease. Consult your dentist soon, get a professional cleaning/scaling done. Rinse your mouth 3-4 times daily with lukewarm water with a pinch of salt. Brush gently with a soft toothbrush.

Everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. The shade of your teeth matches your skin colour. Still you can go for scaling and polishing. For more whiteness, go for bleaching.

Bleeding is due to inflammation in your gums caused due to poor oral hygiene. Medicines will not help you solve your problem. You need to have a clean up done and follow instructions given by your dentist to maintain your oral hygiene.

My father is 63 years old and he is suffering from tooth pain. What should he do?
The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Indications for Root Canal Treatment

Diploma In Cosmetic Dentistry, Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Indications for Root Canal Treatment

Having your dentist say to you that you need a root canal, can be a daunting affair. This means that the pulp or soft tissue inside a tooth has been damaged by bacterial infection. A root canal involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning the infection and filling in the emptied space. Not every tooth infection requires a root canal and hence it is essential to know the indication of a root canal.

Here are a few situations when a root canal may be needed:

  1. Pain: Discomfort ranging from a dull ache to a sharp pain can be a sign that you need root canal treatment. This type of pain is usually characterized by throbbing and may change as you switch positions. It is usually triggered by chewing, applying pressure on the tooth or eating something cold or hot. In some cases, the patient may not be able to indicate the exact tooth that is hurting but can only identify the painful area. 
  2. Gun tendernessSwelling that indicates the need of root canal treatment can range from being slightly red and inflamed to pronounced lumps on the gums. In some extreme cases, this swelling may extend out of the gums into the face and neck region. Sometimes, a pus filled boil with a pimple like head may also form on the gums. If this head bursts, the patient may notice a foul taste in the mouth. This swelling can come and go as the tooth decay deteriorates and may or may not be accompanied by pain. Teeth may also feel like they have been pushed out of their sockets and are taller than usual. 
  3. Tooth discolouration: Discolouring of teeth can be a sign of internal tooth damage. This is especially noted if the teeth take on a dark yellow, grey or blackish tint. Tooth discolouration is fairly common in cases where the tooth has undergone trauma such as an accident etc. 
  4. Exposure of the dental nerves: At times during regular dental work, the nerves in the tooth may be exposed. This indicates an exposure of pulp tissue and can trigger pulp degeneration if left untreated. 

However, all of the above symptoms can be symptoms of other types of dental problems as well and do not necessarily individually indicate the need for a root canal. Only a dentist can properly diagnose a need for root canal treatment after a physical examination and testing.
