You may take homoeopathic medicine Heklalava 6c TDs for 3 days... But it is better to treat what causes the teeth pain.. so better consult with details.

Is chewing gum like happydent and orbit actually good and healthy for our teeth? If not recommend something better.

Is chewing gum like happydent and orbit actually good and healthy for our teeth? If not recommend something better.
chronic consumption of chewing gums sometimes causes side effects because too much xylitol has been known to draw too much water into the gut with it or it may get fermented in the gut by intestinal bacteria which results in nausea,bloating, diarrhea and a psychological feeling of dependence. Apart from these most of the chewing gum contains aspartame, which in the body is broken down to phenylalanine, few of the people have genetic abnormality to metabolise it. So it leads to phenylketonuria in them. This informations are usually mentioned in most of the chewing gum brands.

Does bone grafting or guided tissue regeneration procedures need to undergo dental surgery

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
Does bone grafting or guided tissue regeneration procedures need to undergo dental surgery
Not all dental procedures require guided tissue regeneration (gtr). It is only indicated when we need to grow bone or any other tissue if there is any defect present. Generally this is done in periodontal flap procedure. Guided bone regeneration is generally attempted when you have something called as" angular defect" or a" vertical defect" in the bone.

I have a decayed tooth. What is the treatment for it without removing the teeth? Is applying cavity useful?

I have a decayed tooth. What is the treatment for it without removing the teeth? Is applying cavity useful?
Definitely there is treatment without removal, but the long term prognosis has to be judged either it can be a routine filling or a rct or rct + post n core your dentist is the best guy to suggest that. So pls visit him/her at the earliest.

Flossing once a day increases your life expectancy by six years by preventing gum disease and heart disease. When you floss, you help prevent your gums from becoming inflamed. What is happening when your gums are inflamed is that you have a chronic bacterial infection in your mouth. This harms your arteries through two mechanisms: the bacteria find their way in to your arteries and hang out (causing plaques), and your body mounts an immune response to the bacteria in your mouth, causing inflammation (which in turn can cause your arteries to narrow). This makes it hard for your heart to do its job and can lead to heart disease.

I am 21 Year old. My teeth colour is Some what changing. I drink and smoke very really. What should I do now?

I am 21 Year old. My teeth colour is Some what changing. I drink and smoke very really. What should I do now?
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.
