I have too much cavity in my back side tooth, give me a solution?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist,
Hi please don't delay. Go for an x-ray to know about the extent of the cavities. Because if cavity is superficial they can be restored by filling which is cheaper than rct. And if pulp is exposed then rct will be the only option.

You have periodontitis. You need to go to a dentist and get scaling done immediately. Use warm saline rinses 4-5 times day for home remedy but still you will have to go meet a dentist.

Wisdom teeth often causes severe pain coz of inflammation and also coz of lack of reaching brush in that area. Start with warm saline gargles followed with antibiotics ie tab. Moxikind cv twice a day if you are not allergic to it followed by an analgesic mainly tab zymoflam d once in every 6 hrs.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

If you are not having any sort of pain or senitivity you can simply go for esthetic or cosmetic filling, if its paining visit dentist for proper clinical examination with diagnostic xrays for further treatment like root canal therapy and followed by capping of the tooth for strengthening it.
