Yes your teeth can be treated. You need to get a dental X ray done to see the damage. RCT with cosmetic fillings and crowns may be helpful.

There are so many reasons of pain in tooth. You should visit to a dentist to identify exact cause of pain and proper treatment. Temporarily you can have pain killer for relief, but this is not a permanent solution. Visit to a dentist soon.

Benefits of gargling with lukewarm water

MDS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Benefits of gargling with lukewarm water
To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

Why do we get mouth ulcers regularly? please help me with some of the precautions.

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate user, mouth ulcers could be due to multiple reasons like stress (the most common and important one), vitamin or nutritional deficiency, anemia, eating excess fried food, dehydration etc. Establishing the exact cause in case of frequent or non-healing ulcers is important. Normally, they heal in 7-14 days time. Drinking plenty of fluids and water, eating fruits, salads and vegetables, avoiding oily/fried food, developing a healthy smoke-free, alcohol-free lifestyle and staying stress-free are some of the precautions.

An Insight on Teeth Whitening

BDS, Certification In Oral Implantology
Dentist, Ghaziabad
An Insight on Teeth Whitening

What is it?
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening. Whitening is not a one time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

What it is used for?
The outer layer of the tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the color of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color.

Every day, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains. The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
  • Not taking good care of your teeth

Aging makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker. It is also possible to have stains inside the tooth. These are called intrinsic stains. For example, intrinsic stains can be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing. Other causes include tetracycline antibiotics. They can stain a child's teeth if taken by a mother during the second half of pregnancy or by a child who is 8 years old or younger. Teeth are still developing during these years. Trauma can also darken a tooth and tooth whitening is the most effective way to treat on surface (extrinsic) stains.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •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.

Home remedies are not safe citric acid of lemon wil chelate enamel making surface rough which will attract more plaque and calculus in long term the polish is lost and sensitivity begins. Its safe to get bleaching of teeth by a qualified cosmetic dentist.

Sometimes there are some fafola grew in side my mouth. After 3-4 days it become clear automatically. Is there any solution.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
It looks like you have problem of ulcers. There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

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.
