If dentist has suggested root canal, then you should go for it. Root canal is only the way to save your tooth.

Tooth Coloured Fillings

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

No dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than silver amalgam fillings.

It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling. That’s because composite fillings require the tooth be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than silver amalgam fillings, probably due to cosmetics. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth.

Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
vigorous rinsing after any food
eating a balanced diet
visiting the dentist regularly.

Sometimes, because of the presence of orthodontic appliances in the mouth, the lips become dry. Applying lip balm will provide them with moisture and simultaneously will bring the shine back on your lips.

At your age it may be a wisdom tooth. Which is generally partially erupted due to lack of space and covered with a flap of gum which gets infected when food debris stuck below it. This is called pericoronitis. You should visit your dentist and get some medicines prescribed with localized cleaning. If the problem persists then extraction of that wisdom tooth is advised.

Hi, teeth have a protective layer called enamel with age the enamel wears off and become thin which causes to become teeth sensitive to cold and hot. You need to get a professional check up done to know the exact cause and solution of your problem.
