Hi lybrate-user, tooth removal should be last option. Pain n blackening in tooth can be treated extremely well with v good prognosis by fillings n root canals. And since its your last tooth try your level best to get it saved if you want to have fixed teeth.

Root Canal Treatment as usually perceived by all is not always a very painful procedure.Also may not necessarily require multiple appointments.Except for a few conditions.Expell the fear out and meet your dentist .Try saving than getting your valuable tooth removed.As it is rightly said by someone that each tooth in your mouth is not less worthy than a diamond

Hello, thanx for the query. You are having gum problem calling gingivitis. You need dental scaling done by dentist. At home you can do one thing. Take a glass of warm water add 1 tps salt gargle 2 to 3 times a day daily for a week. For bad breath use mouth wash and clean tongue. For more you can consult me. Thank you drjagrati.

•Composite bonding is a way to repair chipped, cracked, decayed, discolored, misshapen, and gapped teeth. Composite bonding can last up to 10 years. •Veneers are covers for a tooth. The veneer is bonded to the front of the tooth, transforming the tooth’s appearance. With good care, veneers can last up to 30 years, so you won’t have to worry about getting it replaced regularly. You can have veneers placed on one tooth or a few. •If your tooth is chipped badly or you have pain when chewing or drinking, you may need a crown. Crowns are one of the most common restorative treatments. A crown is a cap that covers the tooth and protects in and approves the appearance. It acts as a strong covering for your tooth. When you get a crown, this prevents you from losing your tooth. Without a crown, a damaged tooth won’t be able to withstand the pressure of chewing. •If you have a crack in your tooth that has extended into the pulp,(i. E) if you experience any toothache, sensitivity, or swelling, the tooth requires root canal treatment. Some time after the root canal, a crown can be placed to protect the crack from spreading. Until then, you will be given a temporary crown to wear. Left untreated, infection can spread, causing abscess, bone loss, and other serious problems. •If you have a crack in your tooth that extends below the gum line, your tooth is no longer treatable, and the tooth won’t be able to be saved. You will need a tooth extraction, which means your tooth will need to be pulled. And then, you can get a artificial tooth like dental implant/FPD/RPD to replace your natural tooth.

It depends upon which tooth it is. And how much is the decay. Its always advisable to save the tooth if ppossible. So you need to see a dentist. Only after seeing the case. It is possible to advise.

If you have pain due to problem in your wisdom tooth at a time eg in the middle of night when you can't visit a dentist, for a temporary relief rinse your mouth with lukewarm water mixed with salt. And very next morning visit the dentist for permanent solution.

Dear , As per the details provided by you your dentist has told you everything clearly and he is right. Coming to the cost factor, today almost (if not more) 100 companies are making Dental Implants (screw as you wrote) with various designs and costs. So it depends on which system your dentist is using, will determine the cost of treatment. Don't mind but it is as good as the brands like clothing, footwear, TV, PC or mobile one prefers because of his own or others experience. It also depends upon which city you live, locality etc. As I think you know the cost of business depends, on these factors. So decide earliest possible. Till then Good Luck and Good Bye.

I have pain at my jaw joints, its hard for me to close or open my mouth any solutions for that.

Hi, pain in jaw joint at a young age should be treated as early as possible. Get a dental check up as irregular teeth, improper bite or improper chewing pattern can cause that. Also get an opg done so that we can view all teeth and both jaw joints. Meanwhile, have soft food and don't check for pain by repeating jaw movements. Take a painkiller tablet for temporary relief. Visit an oral medicine specialist or an oral surgeon for complete treatment. Regards.
