Mouth ulcers could be because of many reasons. But most common reasons are stress or vitamin deficiency or gastric problem. Try to rule out these possible reasons after consulting a dentist near you.

Rct is a good procedure to treat pain. You have to put crown/cap in the rc treated tooth. Otherwise it will get weaken.

You can do that with invisible braces also known aligners made by invasilign or clear path company. It's bit expensive. Visit your dentist.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Sometimes a cavity is just too deep to be fixed and may require a root canal. Root canal procedures are used to treat problems of the tooth's soft core, otherwise known as dental pulp. The pulp contains the blood vessels and the nerves of the tooth, which run like a thread down into the root. The pulp tissue can die when it’s infected or injured. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. During a root canal treatment, the dentist removes the pulp, and the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Your dentist may then place a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger and protect it.

this is due to improper brushing technique. although you brush twice a day but you are not following correct technique due to which food particles accumulate between your teeth and have resulted in cavities and calculus deposits. kindly visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth as well as filling of the cavities. follow correct brushing technique and good oral hygiene habits.

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.

If the cavity is superficial, that is, only on the upper layers of the tooth, it can surely be filled with a tooth colored material. However, if it is a deep one, it you may have to undergo an RCT, followed by cap, which is a slightly longer procedure than a usual filling. I suggest that you consult me privately on lybrate so that you attach the pictures of your cavity and I can be in a better position to solve your query, and send across an appropriate prescription. Take care

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Visit a dentist for this. Treatment can be suggested only after knowing the amount of space present in between. For your information, this treatment can be divided as orthodontic treatment for larger spaces (braces, etc) and cosmetic treatment (tooth colored filling, veneers, laminates, etc) for both larger and smaller spaces.
