I have cavity in my tooth which give me pain during drinking water and eating. Otherwise pain is a little bit normal.
Hi Thank you for your query The cavity in your tooth should be restored. If it is a small cavity, normal restoration is enough. If the cavity is very deep, rct should be done. Do the treatment early to avoid its removal.

Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab dentaforce dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Cavity may not start in a few days actually you began noticing it since a few days back. But let us be positive as you are concerned on time and you still have chances to save them. Begin with an OPG and get them fixed with patience.

Please tell me which toothpaste is better for our teeth.
For cavities you need to get them filled. This filling could be simple or deep filling might go for root canal treatment. For prevention avoid sugary snd sticky food. Brush twice a day. Any toothpaste can be used to keep our teeth healthy, it should be used with soft bristle brush.

Get the scaling done , Your doctor will advice you to use a gum toner which will improve the tonicity and adherence of gums towards teeth, in turn will stop bleeding, and gums will get strengthened

Scalling doesn create gaps or loosen teeth. They remove only superficial stains n donot make your teeth pearly white. For more whitening you'll require teeth bleaching by dentist.

How Soda Affects Your Teeth

Drinks such as regular soda, diet soda, sports drinks, canned iced tea and lemonades can lead to extensive tooth decay, enamel destruction and poor dental health because of the low pH or acidity of the drinks.

Enamel is the hardest substance in the body but it is susceptible to breakdown from acids found in soda/drinks. The more acidic the drink (the lower its pH), the more rapid the enamel destruction. Tooth enamel dissolves below 5.5. It is important to note that exposed root surfaces demineralize twice as fast as that of enamel.
Soda/drinks may contain carbonic, phosphoric, malic, citric and tartaric acids and therefore have an acidic pH. No differences in enamel breakdown were found between regular and diet versions of the same brand.

Reduce the Risk
1 Drink carbonated beverages (soft drinks, soda pop) in moderation.
2 Give infants and toddlers these beverages in a regular cup.
3 Sucking on a bottle or sippy cup filled with these beverages promotes tooth decay.
4 Use a straw to help keep sugar away from your teeth while drinking.
5 Choose fluoridated water instead of fizzy drinks.
6 Avoid drinking soft drinks and fruit juice before bedtime.
7 Rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth soon after using either of these.
8 Get regular dental checkups and cleanings

Water – 7.00 (neutral)
Brewed Black Coffee – 6.25
Brewed Black Tea – 5.36

Sir, I am 54 and strong. However, my teeth are becoming very sensitive to cold-drinks and weak to bite hard stuff like bones, etc. Kindly advice.

Dentist, Vadodara
As per your complain it likes to be generalized attrition shayd apke sare dat uppar se ghis gae lagte hain due to aging or habit of bruxism and tobacco products chewing. The other reason is effect due to severe heavy hard brushing causing wearing of teeth leads to sensitivity use Colgate sensitive pro relief and ch-x mouthwash for 1 month if it still persist then go for full mouth rehabilitation in which doctor does rct in all your hypersensitive teeth followed by capping.

Plz take a pain killer and then consult a dentist. Pain killer is only going to give you temporary relief. Dentist will find out the cause of the pain and help you to get rid of it.

Off course you need to visit a dentist because any painkiller would always give you a temporary relief. You need to get x ray done and get the required treatment done.

These are to different problem but can be correlated, as due to malocclusion there can be a tmj clicking sound which is there due to either deep bite or any other cause. As a solution I would ask you to soon start your orthodontist visit for ortho treatment. For the tmj start with the 5 steps protocol - 1. Less mouth opening 2. Soft diet 3. Exercise 4. Moist heat at the joint 5. Medicine a) tab glucosamine once in a day b) painkiller if required.

Even after the RCT is complete, patients must visit their endodontists or dentists to get the proper restorative work completed on the tooth.
