Toothache is because of infection, simply taking medication wont help much so, I think you need to undergo for root canal treatment.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling 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.

To guarantee any thing in health matters is quite debatable as there is no surety for anything none of the doctors will be able to ow your body will react to specific treatment. Although treatment adviced by your dentist is good. Again no guarantee as nobody will be able to figure out that in how much time these teeth can wear off. But if you r going for good quality (zirconia) bridge it will last for near about 10-15 yrs. Let me also tell you that zirconia bridges are on of yhe most expensive bridges. You can opt for signature bridges which also last for 5-7 yrs. You can choose according to your budget.

Hello lybrate-user, the gap between the teeth is also corrected with braces and this is a universal treatment for such cases. Yes, braces treatment is quite costlier but it is a permanent solution. Other treatment is cosmetic treatment consisting of tooth colored filling but is not successful for larger spaces. You better visit a dentist and take the opinion because without seeing it, it's too difficult to advise the exact treatment. Moreover, braces goes for any case.

I have something wrong in tongue from inside and I have indigestion problem I am alwAys feel sick and sleepiness.
Hello lybrate-user, if you are feeling sick and sleepy for a long time you should get your blood sugar level checked both fasting and post prandial (after meal). Juvenile diabetes is very common at your age. You can also check HbAc (glycated hamoglobin level) which determines since when is your blood glucoae level altered. About your tongue, it can be fungal infection (which are common in diabetic individual) and can be easily treated by few antifungal medication. As far as indigestion is concerned change your lifestyle have food on time, avoid junk foods. Avoid long gaps between the meals. Hope this is helpful.

Visit your dentist immediately and get treatment done. Don't just take medicines to suppress the pain, otherwise underlying infection, if any, will cause more damage.
