My teeth have very pain I can not eat any think. What I can do.?

BDS
Dentist,
My teeth have very pain I can not eat any think. What I can do.?
You can take a pain killer tablet like brufen 400 / combiflam /diclogem for a temporary relief and consult a dentist for proper treatment of the tooth to avoid same problem in future. (note: pain killer tablets are also not solution because they only treat the symptom and not the cause of tooth pain. Also harmful for the body if taken for longer periods without proper supervision.) pain can be due to various factors visit your dentist and get a proper examination done which may include x-rays if necessary, to get a precise diagnosis, after which dentist can give you exact alternatives of treatment options and then you can make decision as to get which appropriate treatment suitable to your problem and needs. Regards, Dr. Hiten shah swastik dental care.

Sir I am having payoriya symptoms. Which toothpaste should be used?
If you have bleeding gums or painful gums, you need gum cleaning. Ask your dentist to teach you correct brushing technique. Use a fluoride containing toothpaste.

I have swollen lymph nodes around and inside my throat for more than 4 months. This all started when I got a mild infection in a wisdom tooth. Antibiotics prescribed by a dentist couldn't resolve this so I got Penicillin G prescribed a GP, they have reduced a little bit but they are still swollen. What should do to get rid of this ailment quickly?

Visit your dentist for evaluating the position of the tooth. In many cases the tooth may not erupt at all due to mal position of the tooth in which case one needs to extract it . Since you are experiencing pain since four months it is advisable to visit your dentist and get an antibiotic coverage. Rinse your mouth with luke warm water with a pinch of common salt added to it three to four times a day. Sounds simple but it usually work like wonders. Thanks and regards

Get bleaching and polishing done once and after that maintain it by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after each meal. Avoid the food food that cause stains like excess of tea and coffee, alcohol, pan, gutka, tobacco products and smoking. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

Dry mouth can be very difficult to handle at times and it can lead to very nagging problems all through. As per the history it seems she has a tendency towards hyperglycemia already. Taking utmost care is mandatory for such patients. Regarding dry mouth It may be suggested to visit a dentist evry 6 months, keep the oral hygiene proper always. Although the dentist should clinically examine and suggest the needful but as of now you can use Dry Mouth Gel by GC to get away with the discomfort as of now. Hope this serves the purpose as of now but visit a dentist ASAP. Thanks. :-)

I brush daily two times but my tooth still lite yellow how to solve and also I have cavity how to solve.

BDS

I brush daily two times but my tooth still lite yellow how to solve and also I have cavity how to solve.
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. Get your cavities filled by dentist as there r no home remedies to cure it.

Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth
Sometimes patients are worried whether ultrasonic scaling makes the teeth more mobile. In reality it is just the opposite. During and immediate post scaling patients may find spaces between their teeth but that is because the calculus and other foreign particles have been dislodged to clean the gum area. But very good healthy gum tissues grow back to fill up the spaces making your teeth and gums stronger and better.
