Mostly it is because of deposits over teeth surface. Get your teeth cleaned professionally by scaling and polishing. Sensitivity will be taken care of by scaling only. Start using a desensitizing mouth wash and toothpaste.

Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

Hey lybrate-user! your problem seems like you are developing calculus and plaque deposits too fast. When d deposits on your teeth which is yellow in color stays for too long on the tooth surface. It tends to become black and hard! you have to go for cleaning or scaling preferably once in a year. Let me tell you cleaning/scaling is not a lifetime procedure. Its a yearly or two yearly procedure where in your doctor decides when exactlly you need to go for it! avoid stained food and use a soft toothbrush.

Hello, lybrate-user. First thing I would like to tell you and others is that dental problems are not cured by medicines. You will always need to undergo dental treatments when the cause is decay, fracture or plaque/calculus. Your history suggests infection, but without pics or doing inspection, its hard to know the cause. Still, if the tooth has decay n its not mobile then go for the root canal treatment as it would save your tooth and restore the functionality. Secondly, when tooth has pus at the end of the root due to infection, its better to avoid any type of heat to the local area either in form of hot massage, hot water gargles, or even smoking. Heat may spread the infection to other spaces leading to swelling. Smoking leads to interdental bone loss and your teeth become mobile. Most importantly, it may cause cancer. I hope this information would help you.

Dear I would like to share with you that unlike our medical counterparts way of treatment - we are unable to treat toothache by medication only. There has to be cause for toothache which can only be assessed on seeing you clinically and relating your problem with the same. The clinician may require some investigations to get more details as our medical counterparts do, with a stethoscope. Immediate relief could then be at your feet or should I say mouth. When does the pain start? is it localised or generalised? for how long does the pain last before gradually coming down? what aggravates the pain and what gives you relief from the same?

broken teeth can be repaired if they have not broken beyond the root and crown junction. It would be really helpful if you can send me an image so that I can see the tooth and tell you the various options.
