For gum infection, go for professional scaling and polishing. If the condition is much worse you might require flap surgery on gums. If the mobility of the tooth is more, than its better to remove it n get the artificial implanted.

Yes of course you need to go to a dentist, you are having decayed tooth which is causing problems. Get it sorted before it deteriorates further.

Dear, If you have lots of spices or gutka or tobacco chewing etc. There is great possibility that you may be suffering from OSMF. But, it will be better to have a dental check up by a good Dental Surgeon to allow him evaluate your condition and then guide you out of this mess.

Have coffee - spoil your teeth, have tea - keep them healthy! Tea consists of heavy amounts of flouride and flavonoids which keep the gums and teeth healthy and prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. for faster result you can go for TEETH BLEACHING from dentist...

Dear lybrate-user sometimes there are proximal caries which are nt visible in front of the mirror those need to be filled by the dentist. Or there might be cuts on your teeth due to hard brushing on your premolars if yes then get them repaired.

Healthy gums don't bleed easily. They will remain healthy if you keep them clean. Get scaling done first and then reevaluate. Start off with a healthy balanced diet to rule out nutrient deficiency

Hi cleaning, bleaching and scaling should not be repeated before 6 months, frequent cleaning can damage enamel layer. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal. Floss your tooth to prevent food impaction. These are simole tips, if you follow these properly you can improve your oral hygiene and will not require frquent cleaning.

Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

Pls, get your throat checked, do you suffer from throat infections, or acidity, pls use chlorhexidine mouthwash for one week and then switch on to regular mouthwash once in a day, which doesn't contain alcohol.

Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab dentaforce dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.
