Can a root canal be done on the wisdom tooth? As I have both the wisdom tooth having hole and would want to fill it up and if require I am ok with root canal also. Doctors advise to take the wisdom tooth out but I do not want to loose my wisdom tooth. In one of the wisdom tooth, 15 years back a root canal was done but the silver filing came out. Please suggest a way to salvage wisdom tooth without it to take out.

Since brushing after every meal is not convinient, try chewing a sugarless gum for freshening your breath and removing the leftover food particles.

Bad breath after brushing twice a day and even after using colgate plax and listerine. What to do?

It's nice to hear you have good habits. Bad breath has lots of causes other than teeth. If you have stomach problems or chest infection or sinusitis. Or decreased, salivation.

Removal of supernumerary teeth can not harm you in any way even it may help you to realign your teeth properly initially it takes 7 days to close wound then about 21 to 27 days to heal completly.

All the problem you have only because of plaque or tarter deposition between gum and tooth. Get scaling and polishing done. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly twice daily.

Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (Model study, Full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. You may consult me in person.

Yes if the decay is deep then root canal is recommended. A root canal is dental procedure to fix a tooth that cannot be filled or restored any other way. If the tooth is severely decayed into the nerve of the tooth and / or abscessed, root canal treatment is usually the only option to save the tooth. Your regular dentist might do the root canal, but he / she may send you to an endodontist.

Hi, I understand your problem would like to ask you since how long are you having this Geographic tongue problem, I would rather suggest to stop eating hot and spicy food, don't use chemical based toothpaste, use toothpaste which are made of natural products. Start medication cap. Becadexamine one tablet daily for 1 month apply Quik Kool gel on your tounge thrice daily.

Dentist,
Visit your dentist once in six months for regular check-ups. He/she will be able to check for conditions in the mouth that may put you at risk of developing tooth decay. The initial signs of cavity can be reversed if detected early. If advised, get a professional cleaning or scaling done.

Dear lybrate-user, whitening toothpaste may cause severe tooth sensitivity if used for a long term. In indian market there are so many brands of toothpaste available. For healthy gum use normally available toothpaste which dnt contain any abrasive material as it may damage enamel. If you have tooth sensitivity use sensitive toothpaste in particular.

Activities like cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging should not be performed by making use of our teeth. It can result in broken or chipped teeth. Our teeth should only be used for chewing food.

this is due to improper brushing technique. although you brush twice a day but you are not following correct technique due to which food particles accumulate between your teeth and have resulted in cavities and calculus deposits. kindly visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth as well as filling of the cavities. follow correct brushing technique and good oral hygiene habits.
