Hi the doctor may have applied a material over exposed portion of cavith for the formation of secondary dentine. It takes some time. If new dentine will be formed he will fill the cavity permanently. If not then rct will be the option. X-ray is helpful to know about the condition. Quit the habit of gutka as it causes lots of serious conditions like cancer, submucous fibrosis and leukoplakia. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water or ibuprofen after meal.

Kindly consult a gastroenterologist & a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. 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.

Hi, the fast recovery can be achieved by taking a balanced, healthy and nutritious food, avoiding junk food, taking 7-9hours of sleep at night and 1-2 hours of rest during daytime, keeping yourself well-hydrated by drinking 10-12 glasses of water in a day. Physiotherapy would help you to improve your muscle movements. Also, visit a dentist for those 4 teeth. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - arnica 30 and rhus tox. 30 - both 3 times a day for 2 weeks. And revert.

You need a filling. Basically composite fillings are better compared to amalgam ones. So get a composite fillings done to avoid root canals. Visit your dentist soon.

You need ortho treatment (braces) for space closure along with the treatment of its cause. This spacing may developed due to gum infection (bleeding gums/ swollen gums/painful gums). If so, you may need to get your teeth professionally cleaned before the ortho treatment. Other reason for this spacing might be a missing tooth in that jaw which has not been replaced by a prosthesis. Teeth tend to move towards vacant spaces and so gap appears between them. If so, go for braces along with the replacement of the missing tooth. Costs may vary between rs 30000 to rs 60000.

here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. for faster result you can go for TEETH BLEACHING from dentist...
