Hi, pain in jaw joint at a young age should be treated as early as possible. Get a dental check up as irregular teeth, improper bite or improper chewing pattern can cause that. Also get an opg done so that we can view all teeth and both jaw joints. Meanwhile, have soft food and don't check for pain by repeating jaw movements. Take a painkiller tablet for temporary relief. Visit an oral medicine specialist or an oral surgeon for complete treatment. Regards.

Dear, If you have lots of spices or gutka or tobacco chewing etc. There is great possibility that you may be suffering from OSMF. But, it will be better to have a dental check up by a good Dental Surgeon to allow him evaluate your condition and then guide you out of this mess.

Pain in teeth while eating hot or cold food is indication of sensitivity. You can use sensitivity toothpaste. Normal healthy teeth need not be pearly white. A slightly milky colour is quiet common. Still if you want to lighten you teeth colour you can go for bleaching.

Do whitening toothpastes whiten teeth more than regular toothpastes, and how we whiten are teeth regularly?
Regular toothpastes remove plaque n makes your teeth clean whereas whitening toothpastes contain certain tooth whitening agents which whiten your teeth slowly over a period of 2 wks to 2 months. These whitening agents may cause sensitivity in few individuals n wen unbearable it is advised to discontinue. Whitening toothpastes donot give pearly white teeth for everybody but only lightens one's teeth by 1-2 shade only.

The black spots on your teeth can be deposits or caries. Which can be diagnosed clinically. If they are deposits then kindly get scaling done but if it is caries then kindly get it filled before it becomes deep and painful. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Good evening - the dental surgeon I am sure is guiding you well. Trust your feelings and if you feel you trust his opinion go ahead for it. You may also seek a second opinion about it from another dental surgeon specialist. And be honest to them that you need to seek another opinion - I am sure they will not mind your honesty.

Must be due to bleeding gums! kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.
