You need to see your dentist immediately if you want to save your tooth you need to get an x ray to see if the tooth has broken from the root or is it still attached. The more you delay the less chance you will have of saving your tooth.

Taking a painkiller will only give momentary relief. Please get a x-ray done to find out the extent of caries in the tooth. It may need a filling or root canal treatment. Please consult a dentist soon.

Tooth ache since one week. I had shown to a Doctor he told me I will require a root canal. Is it painful?

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Root canal treatment is performed after giving local anaesthesia injection.So it is not painful during the procedure.Once the LA effect gets over,your painkillers will help you to overcome the pain.Donot fear of RCT.

Teeth have a natural color of their own and the color varies from patient to patient. If you have yellow teeth you can go for a procedure called Bleaching that can again be of 2 types 1. Home bleach 2. Clinical Bleach. Consult your dentist for the same.

Ulcers in mouth can't be control taking precaution but not solving. please advise me.

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
Ulcers in your mouth can be associated with any sharp tooth edges or can be spontaneous. If you feel sharp edges causing ulcers it can be corrected by dentist. If ulcers are spontaneous you can apply amlexanox gel and rexidine m forte gel alternatively 2-3 times each daily till ulcers heal. Avoid spicy and hot food stuffs, chew on ice frequently and since you are allergic to plant products, avoid chewing guava leaves, kattha and other less recognized or non scientific products. It will not help in soothing your pain but can aggravate or can cause allergic reaction.

Generally speaking, pain is a protective response that ranges from minor sensitivity to severe pain and informs the body that something is wrong. As for tooth pain, it is caused by a reaction of the nerves inside a tooth's pulp chamber with the severity dependent upon the type and degree of the stimulus or because of irritation of the gums surrounding the tooth, thus its vital that proper diagnosis of the cause of the pain be made before any sort of treatment can be sought. Usually a painkiller can ease the pain temporarily.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need hexigel ointment until then. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

The blood can be from nose or from gums.. or because of tear in the larynx or oesophagus.. to find out the exact cause I need more questions to ask you... So better consult in private. Once I am sure of the cause I will prescribe a good homoeopathic medicine to overcome this trouble as soon as possible..

Hello lybrate-user, your both problems are not related to each other. Your tooth is having sensitivity problem. For that you can use sensitivity tooth paste like sensodyne, sensoform or shy-nm. Your gums are infected that why they are bleeding. For that you have to go for proffesional cleaning. After cleaning also you have to maintain your oral hygiene at home.

The vomit sensation you are talking about is known as gag reflex. It is a protective mechanism of the human body to avoid the entrance of any unwanted material down the throat. In your case, you are experiencing the reflex while brushing, that means your brushing pattern might be wrong. You are taking your brush to much deeper areas than required. Also, you might not be cleaning your tongue properly. Visit your dentist and ask him about some correct brushing patterns and start using a tongue cleaner. Whenever you experience gag try to focus on some other activity or object, such as your big toe. It diverts you and thus the gag stops. Avoid mouth breathing, that increases the gag. If the problem persists even after changing your brushing/cleaning pattern and avoiding mouth breathing there is more to it. Pay a visit to both your dentist and gasteroenterologist.
