Good morning , it is very important to have a dental check up done and the dental surgeon would after examinations may order some investigations including Xrays - OPG - which would reveal the status of your teeth and their supporting bone. On the basis of same would he be able to help you. It is good that you have suddenly become aware of your handicap - we in the profession will do our best to meet your concerns and rehabilitate you. This has come to pass because of the sheer neglect of your teeth by you. That is why it is recommended to have a 6 month check up from 1 year of age. If we can watch news or read newspapers every day, why we cannot get our general health and dental check up every 6 months!

No medicine keeps cavities away. You can get pit & fissure sealant application and fluoride application done to avoid cavities. Use any white toothpaste and soft toothbrush for brushing twice daily. Try following 'Modified Bass toothbrushing Technique' by viewing it on YouTube.

Get yourself checked by dentist. If pain is dull and continuous then you need to go for gum treatment. If pain is sharp and usually at night or on biting then get the root canal treatment done. If treated tooth is giving you pain then get xray done then previous treatment can be evaluated.

Perhaps because of age--I am being in my seventies--some of the teeth has got partly broken as a result of which food particles get stuck up. It is becoming a habit with me to use toothpick. My dentist says horizontal filling is not possible. My general physician is not in favour of extraction because of age related health problems. I need to have suggestions for this so that pain or other problems can be avoided. Is their any harm in using wooden toothpick. I do not use any form of tobacco but occasionally drink moderately.

Hello sir sorry to hear that ure suffering with food impaction and you have to use tooth pick to remove the food. Yes sir ure dentist is right by saying tooth picks are harmful for your gums. I wud suggest you to use floss provided your hands are having the dexterity to do flossing. Teeth can be fixed at any age immaterial of the medical status but with caution. Tooth also can be extracted with proper update on the medical history and at times in a hospital environment. I hope I answered your question sir god bless and good luck

I have a problem my mouth. When I talk then locked my tooth. Place help. Sometimes pain my tooth side.
Kindly consult an Oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, TMJ open & closed mouth, MRI) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Avoid yawning. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. You may consult me in person.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, 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. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
