My mother feels severe sensitivity and ache in her lower molar teeth (2nd one). The dentist found a slight brackishness in the X-Ray of her tooth but said there was no major problem. My mother still got her Root Canal done and to the dentist's surprise, there was no blood after the procedure. What does this indicate? The tooth is not dead also. Her pain has not alleviated even after Root Canal. What could this possibly be? Does this indicate a problem other than a root/tooth problem? She is 51 years old.

I feel the tooth is not a vital or living tooth (the nerve in the tooth is dead) if there was no blood during the root canal. Hence in my opinion the problem should be with the bone which surrounds the roots of the tooth. You should get a x-ray done, if there is a dark area surrounding the root, after root canal treatment, then a small surgical procedure called apicectomy can be performed which should help.

Recently my tooth filling has come off and it seems as though there was decay below the filling. This has caused a big hole in my premolar 4. Now I get immense shooting pain when I eat or have something cold. Please help. Will I need a root canal or will replacing the filling be adequate.

As per your symptoms you need rct followed by crown that can be confirmed by xray. Start salt water rinse and avoid food lodgement. Visit your dentist before your tooth becomes unrestorable.

FOR YELLOWNESS OF TEETH: Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. FOR BLEEDING GUMS: We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or 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.

How to take care of our teeth?

BDS

Burshing twice daily, flossing and use of mouthwash basically does the trick. Regular dental check up at every 6 month helps to detect caries in its incipient form thereby preventing bigger complication later on. Try avoiding refined carbs in your diet and make sure you thoroughly rinse your mouth with normal water after having food.

Pain is because of swelling due to food lodgement in that wisdom teeth area. Get your full mouth xray (opg) done from radiology lab and consult your dentist for status of wisdom teeth. Whether teeth can erupt or will just trouble you after every couple of months.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: - practice good oral hygiene. - brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. - don't forget to brush the tongue, too. - replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. - use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. - see your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. - drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. - chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If you r not happy with your teeth shade later, you can get bleaching done by dentist which'll lighten your teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively you can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth.

What are the process of teeth cleaning? is it harmful? how much it costs?
Teeth cleaning is done by ultrasonic scaling and polishing. It is not at all harmful but during the procedure a bit of hypersensitivity might result. Only contraindicated in those patients having cardiac pacemaker. Costs around 1500.
