Visit a dentist to find out the cause of the sensitivity. If the case if very severe, using a simple over-the-counter toothpaste will not be enough. A suitable treatment must be undertaken followed up by maintenance using an anti sensitivity paste.

Well you need to go for scaling (tooth cleaning)& polishing of teeth. Some dentist only perform scaling & not polishing so it is very important that you ask them to perform polishing after scaling. Minor scratches as you said will fade away.

If its due to any trauma. Do take care by avoiding very hard and spicy food for few days. Take soft n liquid diet. Use betadine gargle twice or thrice daily in diluted form. N take antibiotic n pain killer as prescribed by a quqlified doctor. If it is from birth and non traumatic it can b corrected by cosmetic surgery.

Is dental implant good ?
Dental implant is a good way of replacing a missing tooth. Advantages being there is no grinding of neighbouring tooth to restore one particular tooth. As per dentist he might give guarranty on implant as well as crown. Does not let the neighbouring teeth tilt in to position where missing teeth is. Maintains form and structure. Maintains the height of bone. Does not let it resorb over a period of time. A minimum period of 3 months required after implant has been placed as the implant has to integrate with the bone.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Drink plenty of water. For dry mouth, consider chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugar-free candies to help stimulate salivary flow. There also are artificial saliva’s on the market that may help to induce salivation. Sialogogues (Pilocarpine 30 mg/day. Contraindications - include many lung conditions, such as asthma, cardiac problems, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease). Advance procedures can be done with laser.

How To Prevent Dental Cavities

Dental cavities, often the result of tooth decay is a natural factor that occurs in all humans. However, depending upon the amount of care that you give to your teeth, dental cavities usually occur at different time periods for different people. For children who eat a lot of sweets, dental cavities are likely to arise at an early age if they do not protect their teeth by brushing them in the morning and at night. Similarly, dental cavities can also arise in young people, and is one of the prime reasons for loss of teeth. In order to understand how to take care of dental activities, it is important to first understand what causes them.

Causes

Bacteria usually lives within a person's mouth. The bacteria are responsible for converting the food in to acids. The food pieces, mixed with the acids, the bacteria and the saliva all combine, resulting in the formation of a sticky substance known as plaque. As a person chews his food, the plaque tends to get stuck to the teeth. Over the passage of time, as the plaque is not removed from the teeth, it turns in to a substance which is known as tartar. The tartar begins to irritate the gums, which results in diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis.

Tooth decay begins to take place if the plaque is not removed from the teeth. For an average person, plaque begins to set in 20 minutes after eating, ultimately damaging the enamel on your teeth, and creating holes in your teeth, which in dental terminology, are regarded as dental cavities. Caring for dental cavities is not an overnight procedure; a person needs to be consistent in cleaning their teeth. However, once dental cavities, or the holes, have been formed in a person's teeth, they can only be rectified by a professional dentist.

Treatment

Filling is one of the most common treatments chosen by individuals who have dental cavities. Dentists usually fill the teeth by first removing the decayed material with the help of a drill, and then use another material, often being porcelain or composite resin, in order to fill it up. In some instances, gold, silver and platinum are also used. For frontal teeth, porcelain and composite resin are usually preferred, as they both match the appearance of natural teeth in a person.

The second method is 'crowning. If the tooth structure is significantly limited and the dental cavities are extensive, this might be the preferred option. The first step is the removal of the decayed or damaged area. Once the damaged part has been removed, a crown is placed over the top of the tooth, hence covering the area. Often times, the crown is made out of metal or composite resin or porcelain, and is affixed with a metallic structure.

Pain in teeth +6

An xray needs to be done prior to any treatment of the affected tooth. Probably root canal treatment will be required.

Bad breath from the mouth can be of various reasons. Like accumulation of plaque and tartar, decay in teeth, dry mouth, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated beverages and alcoholic drinks, sore throat, bad digestion. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. You should also clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Hope that helps.

Sensitivity may be due to caries in teeth or cervical abrasion. If you have caries then you need to fill the tooth/teeth. Or if you have mild abrasions then you may ho for sensitivity toothpastes. If abrsions are severe then you may need to fill that.

If taken care at the right time, gum diseases can be reversed easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed from the teeth, you can get rid of the gum diseases, reversing it in its initial stage itself.
