•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •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.

First thing to find out is whether black stains on your teeth are external or internal. If its external then it can be eliminated by proper scaling, polishing and stain remover. And if its internal stains then porcelain or composite laminates would be appropriate option left to improve appearance.

There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a painkiller like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

All About Dental Implants

Dental implants are generally identified as substitutes for tooth roots. Besides, replacing damaged or decayed teeth, implants also provide a strong foundation for both permanent as well as removable replacement teeth.

Advantages
There are loads of advantages of dental implants:
1. Better overall appearance of teeth, since they are made to fuse with the bone
2. Unlike removable dentures, implants are much more comforting as well as convenient
3. Higher self-esteem as you will feel better about yourself
4. Improved speech quality in the long run
5. Eating becomes comparatively easier with implants rather than sliding dentures, because they function like your own teeth
6. Improved oral health
7. Good durability (can even last a lifetime if taken good care of)

Success rate
Generally, dental implants have a very impressive success rate (up to 98%). This can differ, however, based on the placement of the implants.

Who can go for dental implants?
1. Patients must have healthy gums
2. Must have sufficient bone strength to hold the implants in place
3. Must be dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene
4. Must visit dentist regularly

Procedure
There are many steps involved in getting an implant:
1. An individualized treatment plan, addressing all your specific needs and prepared by a team of professionals, well versed in oral surgery and restorative dentistry
2. Placement of the tooth root implant into the bone socket of the missing tooth
3. Attachment of a small connector post known as an abutment, which securely keeps the new tooth intact
4. Attachment of a crown (the replacement tooth) to the abutment

The operation is normally administered under a local anesthesia. The whole process is not harmful at all, to say the least, and people have reported that a normal tooth extraction cause much more pain than a dental implant operation.
