Am 29 yes old, and am getting left side pain from ear jaw and chest from 2 year.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist,
It may be due to your tooth problem or heart problem. There is a shift in the trend of cardiac disorders. Earlier it was confined to elderly people but recently more younger ones (as young as 25 years) are getting affected too. This is mainly due to change in the life style. So I will advise you to go in following sequence 1) take tab rantac 150 mg before food. See if your chest pain is relieved. 2) consult a dentist to rule out any dental or temporomandibular joint problem. 3) if chest pain is not relieved consult a physician.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

Please visit your dentist for scaling and root planning as no other remedies or medicine will work until your teeth get clean through machine. And visit as soon as possible because pyorrhea can cause teeth loosening and you can loose your teeth.

You are likely suffering from vit c deficiency or gingivitis. With a probe and looking at your teeth a dentist can find out the reason. Sometimes faulty brushing can also cause this.

Listening to your symtoms it looks like you are developing a condition called oral submucous fibrosis. The treatment of patients with oral submucous fibrosis depends on the degree of clinical involvement. If the disease is detected at a very early stage, cessation of the habit is sufficient. Most patients with oral submucous fibrosis present with moderate-to-severe disease. Moderate-to-severe oral submucous fibrosis is irreversible. Medical treatment is symptomatic and predominantly aimed at improving mouth movements.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

I have to remove one of my rear side tooth due to decay. On removing it, it was found that the tooth next to it has a small black spot on it. Do I need RCT. Please advise.

Post-Graduate Certificate in Endodontics
Dentist, Cuttack
A small black spot from above can also cause a big dig inside. If it is on superficial layer, only filling is advised. If it is deep, it might need a rct. To confirm, you need to go for a xray.

Ulcers generally take 1-2weeks to heal completely. recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures n cheek bites. It can also b due to General nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stressful lifestyle etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs which includes vit c n iron supplements if ur hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous n citrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.

Sir ulcers are usually due to break in the lining of oral tissue. This happens due to a lot of causes. First we need to identify the cause for finding the solution. Merely using an analgesic gel and antiseptic gel wont help.

Hi Kkumar . Toothache is due to cavities or swollen gums. Only a dentist can check and tell you what your problem is. Once the problem is known the solution is just a couple of sittings away

Dear Mam.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals & hexigel ointment on the cheek area until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. 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.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

Cavities are not treated with medicine. Get it filled at a dental clinic with appropriate material before it advance deeper. It might cost you 500-2000.

This is a perfect picture to show on how a cavity started between the teeth where only the floss can clean. The cavity grew all the way down in to nerve which caused the tooth to hurt and could only be treated with either a root canal or to remove the tooth.
