Kindly visit dentist to assess positioning of teeth so as to give proper diagnosis for braces. And for yellowness you may have tartar / deposit on teeth. And you may need teeth cleaning and polishing.

Dear Lybrate user, you haven't clearly mentioned the details. Is it a back tooth in the last (wisdom tooth) that is hurting? Or is it a decayed tooth with cavity that is hurting? The muscle that you are referring too must be part of your gums that has surrounded the developing wisdom tooth as that is the last tooth to erupt and mostly starts coming at your age. If that is the case, you can take a pain killer after consulting your dentist. Your dentist can check it and also take xray if required to know the exact position in which the tooth is erupting. In the meanwhile, also rinse your mouth with warm salt water 3-4 times daily and maintain good oral hygiene.

Root Canal and Its Benefits

Root Canal and Its Benefits

When bacteria destroys the outer layer of your tooth (the enamel), cavities become inevitable. Cavities are usually treated with a simple filling procedure. But if the cavities manage to enter the interior of your tooth, they can cause extensive damage to the nerve tissues, which are encased by the pulp. This damage to the nerve tissues is termed as pulpitis an extremely painful condition.

The only way to prevent pulpitis is a root canal, which is a treatment to save and repair the badly infected tooth. During the procedure of a root canal, the pulp and nerve are removed and the interior of the tooth is sealed after it is cleaned thoroughly. Then to protect the hollowed space, a crown (a rigid cover which is stronger than the enamel) is implanted. Basically, root canal aims to preserve the tooth and not save it, since it is extremely infected and already dying. If the infection is not treated promptly, it can spread to the tissues around the tooth, causing you pain all over your head.

Root canal is minimally invasive and not at all painful. The pros of root canal include:

  1. Tooth extraction is not needed
  2. The tooth can remain intact
  3. There is no bone loss around the tooth

How about you think twice?
A root canal takes up a lot of your time, and expenses. Sometimes, you may wonder if you should get a second opinion before undergoing such a transformative surgery.

Before your doctor can diagnose, he/she will perform an X-ray of your mouth. If abscesses (these show up in X-rays as dark spots) are found, you may need a root canal procedure. Usually, people refrain from a root canal, and go for a second opinion, especially when the tooth is not really bothering them and if there is hardly any pain. It all depends on how far the infection has spread.

If the infection is shallow, a simple amalgam filling can treat your problem. But if the infection has penetrated deep into your tooth and damaged your nerves, you have no choice but to get a root canal done.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sir, your problem is complex and definitely giving you a lot of discomfort. You must get a consultation from gastro specialist doctor. Please do not do self medication. Much of your problem will be relieved if acidity is controlled.

Try sensoform toothpaste, if still the sensitivity does not disappear, then get a root canal treatment done of the sensitive teeth.
