Exclusively for a DENTIST- Hi, I had to undergo a root canal and filling and a temporary tooth had to be placed 2 days ago cause my front 3 tooth broke in an accident. They call it trauma. How long should I wait until I can start smoking and drinking alcohol again? And tomorrow will be my last day of medication, a pain killer and an antibiotic. No pains.

Just complete the course of antibiotics. If you don't have any bruises because of trauma, then you can smoke and drink. Smoking and drinking are not good for your health, so if you have controlled the habit then don't start again. Be healthy, be happy.

I have tremendous cavities over both upper and lower molar region! What procedures may help me the most! I want to re implant my teeth as my age is 29 currently.

You should go for cosmetic filling or rct depending on how much deep cavity. Followed by crown or fpd. If any one tooth will be in more worse condition you should go for extraction after that place fpd. See a doctor.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

You should have got the crown, if you already have crown on your root canal treated teeth then that means its a bad root canal treatment. Get it retreated by an mds endodontist. No need for extraction. Your tooth can still be saved.

Dear for having white teeth you need to clean your teeth regularly and visit dental surgeon for cleaning and polishing of teeth. Use listerin mouthwash for oral hygiene and medically you can have bleaching done in clinic or use bleaching kit at home.

Dear lybrate-user, swelling in any region of the body is not considered good. Kindly get it checked by a nearby doctor. Once the reason is known treatment can be started.
