You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

I got a dental bridge done on molars over an year ago. After a month or so, I am experiencing severe stench from outer side of the bridge. I went back to the same clinic and complained, but I was told that as there is no pain nor swelling, it's all ok! I had been very sensitive to foul smelling of others' mouth. Now, I am with it perpetually! what should I do to get back my oral confidence?

you can go for braces after consulting an orthodontist. if the bone is strong enough you can get braces done and close the space. in case of weak bone get crown or veneer done.

Hi severe pain can be dueto deep cavity. You need to be investigated and diagnosed properly to rule out the cause of pain. If there is cavity apply clove oil soaked in cotton and ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water or ibuprofen after meal for temporary relief.

Hello Lybrate user, at the age of 22, it would be best to undergo orthodontic treatment for closure of spaces, where teeth will be moved slowly over a period of time within the bone, with the help of braces and the results are permanent with proper planned retention. On the contrary the bonding material may get discolored over a period of time and also chip off if not taken care properly. Though it may be a faster option it may not last long. You need to visit an Orthodontist for further details.
