I got wisdom teeth but there no place to come out It's very paining What to do is it ok Or need to remove.

BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
If the wisdom tooth has erupted fully and in a proper position then we can save it by dental cement filling. If the cavity is deep and near or into the pulp then we can save it by root canal treatment. Ideally we should save natural tooth structure if its fits in above criterias. If the wisdom teeth has erupted in a such way that it's disturbing other tooth structures and we don't have any option left for saving it then only you should go for removal. The wisdom tooth usually causes pain because of its uneven position distrubing adjacent teeth and some times swelling of the tissues around the tooth causing pericoronitis ( i.e inflamation of the surrounding soft tissues ) causing pain. Wisdom tooth which is usually considered as an extra tooth having no role in mastication (i.e chewing of food) On other hand removal of wisdom tooth have much advantages rather than any disadvantage.. Retaining wisdom tooth some times results in food lodgement within and between adjacent tooth ,results in caries ( decay ) of the adjacent tooth. So for improper erupted wisdom tooth, removal is the only and best available option to the date. Which in turn also helps in preserving other tooth structures. Jay Swaminarayan.

Pain Even After Root Canal - What To Do

Pain Even After Root Canal - What To Do

When a small cavity isn't treated in time, the tooth decays badly that normal filling cannot solve the problem. In such cases, your dentist will probably advise you to undergo, a root canal. When performing a root canal, the dentist will remove the nerves and pulp within the tooth, clean the inside of the tooth and seal it. After this procedure your tooth will not sense anything and should be pain free.

However, in some cases you may still experience pain after root canal and there are four main causes of this pain:

  1. Swelling of ligament around the tooth: One of the signs that you need a root canal is swelling of the gums. Even after the nerves and pulp within the tooth are removed, the ligaments around the infected tooth may still be swollen. This can take some time before the tissue is normal again. In most cases this is the cause for pain after a root canal procedure.
  2. Damaged tissue: Part of the root canal procedure is to clean the insides of the tooth. Here the dentist must be very careful to not go beyond the tooth. In some cases the file used to clean the tooth may go beyond the root and damage the tissue there. Another possibility is that the sealant used to fill the tooth may go beyond the root, thus aggravating the tissue. This can take some time to heal and may cause pain.
  3. Excess filling: After the tooth has been cleaned, the dentist fills the tooth with a sealant. If excessive sealant is filled in the tooth, it may become taller than the surrounding teeth, which puts extra pressure on the tooth and results in soreness and pain. The dentist will have to remove the excess sealant in order to resolve this issue.
  4. Phantom pain: Phantom pain is rare when it comes to root canal. This occurs when the nerve leading up to the tooth still behaves like it were connected to the tooth despite the nerve within the tooth being completely removed. The peripheral nerves will need to be treated to resolve this issue.

In most cases, these events cannot be prevented. There is also no reason to expect that this is a symptom of your root canal being a failure. Stay in touch with your dentist and brush and floss your teeth regularly. You will soon notice the pain subsiding.

A tooth which get broken (fractured) cannot be back naturally if it's a permanent tooth. He can get an x-ray done wether an rct is required or not and get a crown on that tooth.

As such your diet habits should be corrected first, yellowish tooth are due to improper dental hygiene, daily your tooth brushing time should be at least 5 min. And for bad breath you can use mouth wash solutions available, and add one cap of chlorhexidine 15 ml of plain water and gargle 2-3 times. If not improved then go for scaling and cleaning.

Black spots can indicate tooth decay or may simply be a stain. Clinical check up will help decide the nature of the spot. If it appears to be decayed, the teeth can be filled and restored to normal.

It would be great if you post a good quality picture of the teeth in problem so as to draw a perfect conclusion and to decide the treatment. There are 2-4 types of treatment modalities available to correct the same like- Wiring (orthodontic)-expenses depends upon the type and method of wire used -approximately 20000-75000 best treatment according to me as its natural, noninvasive and permanent good results etc Composites- expenses varies according to the kit used, and also place to place Veneer-expenses varies according to the kit used, and also place to place crowns-expenses varies according to the material used, and labs also place to place.

It usually starts from 3000. If it is done by good clinician or endodontist then they can assure you, but there is no guarantee in medical fuild as we all know there is no guarantee for life too.
