Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. 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.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Gums bleeding is due to infection in gums. Get scalling done by dentist. Take vit c tab for one week. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs.

Hello mam, you are aware of your problem, we would suggest you visit a dentist to start with your orthodontic treatment as it becomes more difficult to get good and faster results with age. The duration and cost of treatment is variable as there is a wide variety of materials available.

This can be either due to decay in teeth or sensitivity. Set your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. If decayed, than get the cavity filled with or without rct depending on the extent of decay. For sensitivity, use any desensitizing toothpaste twice daily.

Plaque accumulation on the tooth surface is one the main reasons for halitosis(bad breath), deposits on the tongue can also elicit bad breath. It is advisable to brush twice a day , floss regularly and use a mouthwash. Also visit your dentist for an comprehensive oral treatment.

Lybrate-user, if your wisdom tooth is incorrectly placed or stuck halfway and has not erupted fully because of improper positioning, you will need to get the wisdom tooth extracted to get rid of the problem. If it is incorrectly placed, it is better to get it removed at a early age.

What is the reason for gum swelling and what is the treatment. How can I maintain healthy gum.
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user reasons for gum swelling can be many ranging from poor maintainence of oral hygiene, systemic diseases such as diabetes, consumption of specific medications, pregnancy, habits such as smoking, mouth breathing etc. Maintainence of oral hygiene by proper brushing and flossing regularly would solve most of the problems related to gum swelling and if it still persists it would be apt to visit a dentist and get a thorough cleaning done.

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