Please take her to a local dentist. Pain in gums or periodontal problems are generally not very painful. She might be having a carious tooth which is causing her pain. Proper oral and radiographic findings will get a exact diagnosis and hence give her relief. A healthy diet is not detrimental to healthy oral cavity. Brushing twice a day, avoiding sweet foods and soft drinks are few practices that helps in lower caries formation in the long run.

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

Teeth whitening also called as bleaching is a safe procedure for making your teeth whiter than before but recommended to be done under the supervision of your dentist. Your dentist will first determine the health of your gums and teeth and then recommend you the procedure.

Dear Lybrate User, It's very unfortunate that the water quality of your area is bad. By bad, I imply that the water contains too much of fluoride, which in the long run, is not good for your teeth and bones. You may wish to change your place of residence and go to an area where the water quality is significantly good. Meanwhile, brush your teeth with any of the over-the-counter available toothpastes like Colgate or Pepsodent and regularly visit a dentist to get your teeth examined. If your teeth already have stains on them or are discoloured (white, yellow or brown), your dentist would be able to suggest you some good teeth whitening options including but not limited to veneers, laminates, composite fillings or crowns. Good Luck!

If a tooth gets decayed to an extent that the inner tissue get affected, it can get very painful. See a dentist. Probably you would have to go for a root canal treatment.

All About Different Types of Gum Disease

Gum disease begins with the growth of bacteria in your mouth and it may end with loss of teeth. Thus, the severity of gum disease or periodontitis should not be underestimated. Tooth loss mainly happens due to the destruction of the tissue which surrounds the teeth. 

Types of gum disease:

  1. Gingivitis: Gingivitis is basically the first stage of periodontitis. It causes bleeding from the gums and also causes immense pain in the teeth.
  2. Periodontitis: In periodontitis, the gum and teeth separate. A gap is formed between the two which may cause debris to accumulate in the space and cause other infections.

Causes of gum disease:
The exact cause of gum disease is not known but here are some of the possible causes:

  1. Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes during pregnancy, menopause and puberty are just some times the gums become more sensitive and gingivitis develops.
  2. IllnessesCancer, HIV, diabetes and other illnesses may cause problems with the immune system and damage the gums. This is an example of how gingivitis is caused as a complication of other disorders.
  3. Bad habitsSmoking causes gum disease as you may already know.
  4. Poor oral hygiene: Not brushing and flossing may lead to accumulation of food materials in the mouth causing gum diseases.
  5. Family history: Family history is also a major contributing factor to what may cause gum disease.

Treatment:
The treatment prescribed for gum disease depends how deep it is set and whether it is a case of gingivitis or periodontitis. Here are the possible treatments for gum disease:

  1. Professional dental cleaning: This is the most common treatment used in the early stages of gum disease. In fact, dental cleanings are usually used to prevent it and are used as soon as tartar and plaque buildup. 
  2. Scaling and root planing: This is also a type of cleaning except that it needs to be done under a local anesthetic as there is a certain degree of pain involved in the procedure.
  3. Surgery: Surgery is also sometimes used to remove the infected pockets and put the gums back in their original place.

teeth pain can be due to decay or fractured teeth, gum infection or sensitivity. get your teeth x-rayed n go for needful treatment. for decay, you might require rct n cap or removal n replacement by implants or bridge. for gum infection, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. for sensitivity, use desensitizing toothpaste twice daily.
