Cavity has taken place in my chewing teeth and it pain alot along with the roots
What should I do now?
Treatment dental pain teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

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.

Go for filling of teeth which is better because at this age your child have both mily as well as permanent teeth. At the age of 9 permanent teeth are at risk.

Please visit dental surgeon for checkup. Keep yourself well hydrated and use hydrogen per oxide for gargles and take tab b complex one in a day for a week. Treatment to keep mouth healthy and free from smell is cleaning and polishing of teeth and maintenance of oral hygiene. Use colgate total paste and listerin mouthwash twice a day.

My 3.5 year old son having trouble with his molars, when we consulted some dentist he suggest to remove all the molar except one since decay is deep. Can we do something to save these teeth. If molar would be removed how will eat and chew for next 10 years and spacing issue for the permanent teeth.

Dentist, Jamnagar
You are right . Please consult other dentist and get a second opinion. Deciduous molar falls at the age of 12 so it's not advisable to extract it at such a small age. Please consult any pedodontist or endodontist.

Go for professional scaling and polishing of teeth. Quit the habit of smoking or tobacco chewing if you have any. For more whiter teeth, you can also go for bleaching.

Get yourself checked by dentist. If your tooth can be saved then you need to go for gum series and splinting. If it cannot be saved then get it extracted and replaced. Also get your teeth professionally cleaned to improve your gum health.

My child is 4 years old she is suffering from mouth smell is very bad what I should do?

My child is 4 years old she is suffering from mouth smell is very bad what I should do?
Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

Sorry I have questioned about mouth ulcers. Kindly tell me the best medicine to remove ulcers from my mouth.
Ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, dry mouth, trauma from teeth, spicy n oilly foods. Start taking vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Avoid oilly spicy foods completely. Gargle with warm salt water 7-8 times a day.

Surgery for removal of wisdom tooth is nothing to be so scared about. Most commonly the procedure is done under local anaesthesia and should take about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the condition of your tooth. Following the surgery you can expect some pain and swelling which is controlled by use of antibiotics and painkillers. Usually the sutures are removed after 7 days of the surgery. In the meantime there are some food restrictions you need to follow, like eating a soft diet.

Fill the caries teeth. If your tooth is broken from middle and if it extends to root you have to extract the tooth. If it does not extend to root you can reproduce the tooth with composite build up or fo for a crown.

Why To take One Glass of LemomJuice In Luke Warm Water Daily Early In Morning Immediately after Tooth Brushing. Whether Obesity can be Checked?

yes obesity can be checked with lemon juice and warm water. When you consume lemon water, the acidity of it weakens the enamel of teeth temporarily for around 45 mins. Now suppose if you brush after consuming lemon juice and water, you are brushing off weakened enamel which will lead to sensitivity. Hence it I advisable to brush before.

Gum bleeding is due to infection in gums. Infection in gums due to negligence in daily cleaning of teeth. But now as the infection is already occurred you have to go for professional cleaning. After cleaning also you have to take of daily maintenance of oral hygiene.

Muje ek dentist ki salah chahiy please Masooro se blood aata hai badboo hai aur dant peele ho gay solution bata do plz.
Dear lybrate-user, the bleeding gums and foul smell are due to accumulation of food debris, which is a result of inadequate maintenance of oral hygiene. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Also, you can consult pe privately on lybrate so that I can send across prescriptions that will help you maintain a better health of your gums. Hope that helps.
