Helo sir I am Akash I am 25 yrs old man n I have suffering from cavity problem so what should I di.

BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
6- Cavity Having cavities is not a serious problem at all. Cavities which are not too deep can be excavated and be restored by a dental cement. Cavities that are very deep can be cured by root canal treatment followed by crown ( cap ). For better prevention of cavities , 1- Follow proper brushing technique. 2- Brush twice a day 3-clean your teeth immediately every time after you eat food or liquids. 4- Undergo scaling ( cleaning of teeth) at the interval of every 5-6 months. 5- Visit dentist for regular oral cavity check up every 4 months for the early diagnosis and prevention of dental diseases.

Dentist,

Hi, the best method to remove yellowness from teeth is to get the teeth cleaned by your dentist. If required, bleaching or veneering can also be done for more whiteness. Regards.

Every 6 months one should go for teeth cleaning, there is no age limit for implant unless you are medically compromised. Root canal treatment can b advised if the decay is very deep reaching upto the last layer of the tooth, to avoid for lodgement. You can use a floss or a proxa brush.

- 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. - 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.

Dentist,
You can’t brush every time you eat. But you sure can drink water or at least rinse your mouth with water every time you do so. Water neutralises the effects of acidic and sugary foods. Rinsing removes food particles left behind on/ between the teeth.

I have pain in my teeth. I use sensodyne while brushing my teeth twice a day but then also my pain is not getting less please give me some solution to my problem.

BDS
Dentist, Thane
Hello, pain in tooth and sensitivity are two different problems. Sensitivity is sharp, shooting type of sensation in teeth on contact of extremely cold or hot food which usually lasts for a few seconds and disappears completely after that and re-occurs again on such stimulus. Pain in the tooth which is not getting less indicates a different and more complex problem which needs proper examination and treatment. You have pain in your teeth and sensodyne (any of the sensitive toothpaste) is a sensitive toothpaste. So there will not be any relief offered by any sensitive toothpaste. You can take a pain killer tablet like brufen 400 or combiflam for a temporary relief and consult a dentist for proper treatment to avoid such problem in future. (note: pain killer tablets are also not solution because they only treat the symptom and not the cause of tooth pain. Also harmful for the body if taken for longer periods without proper supervision.)
