Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are stress, change in lifestyle or medicine, allergies. Start some vitamin supplements. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Reduce your stress level. Increase your intake of water. Avoid oilly n spicy food.

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

These are ulcers I suppose. You should start doing warm saline rinses and apply ulci-heal gel over that ulcers for quick healing.

Having a pain and some harmful bacteria in my teeth please suggest me some treatment to solve my problem.
Go to a dentist nd get diagnosed. Unless nd until dentist ll see your teeth he doesn't knows the actual cause of pain. Dentist will observe that tooth and take radiograph then only he ll prescribe you medicine and do the necessary treatment. Widout observing clinically dentist can't help you. There may me sum perical apical lesion aur caries. For dat you have to go for. Root canal treatment.

I have paioria in my teeth and I very pained in teeth so tell me the best medicine.

I have paioria in my teeth and I very pained in teeth so tell me the best medicine.
This problem cannot be solved with only medication you need to visit dentist for deep cleaning of your gums as well as teeth because in this condition the root cause of problem is bacteria residing in the layer and hard deposits around your teeth and inside your gums so, medication can be only effective after routiene deep cleaning and polishing of your teeth.

My tooth broken half inside of the mouth. What should I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
My tooth broken half inside of the mouth. What should I do?
We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment with a cap. 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.

I think i am having cavity in between two of the inner teeths. Whener i am trying to eat from that side, the food gets stuck into that are, and it pains till i remove it.

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Dear , You might either be having a cavity there or the height of bone between the two teeth there would have shrunk. Either of these problems create a gap where the food can get stuck, causing pain after sometime. Kindly get yourself checked and the further treatment can then be advised.

If your permanent teeth are maligned due to milk teeth and you want it to be correct then you should go for extraction of milk teeth and get your teeth alignment correct. But if you're happy with your dentition then forget about milk teeth it will shed off by own sometime.
