highly sensitive tooth is one of the first signs dental caries.sensitivity to cold foods is an indication that tooth is still alive.There is a possibility of saving the tooth with a filling if treated on time.However, this may warrant root canal treatment.

Bad breath or halitosis as it is caused is an unpleasant smell from the mouth of a person as he breaths out, when breathing in n out r normal essential functions, the causes can b basically decided into two a local causes b gen causes. Mostly it is due to local causes which r a poor cleaning of teeth, mouth tongue,lodgement of food in cavities , in between teeth , chewing on some thing which smells eg paan masalas,chewing gums , sound, ills hie etc. When some smells may b pleasant but stagnant u cleaned smells r always bad as the come from decaying food stuff etc it's like u r passing around a dustbin . As mouth is not dustbin keep it clean n always, the other local causes r gum infections, infection of tonsils, infection of sinuses basically maxillary sinus situated in middle face two of them behind nose.Other sinuses may also contribute but to very little extent, some nose infection may also contribute to the smells. Unclean skin like black heads type on nasal skin , very oily skin may also contribute n enhance the smells.
THE BASIC CAUSE BEING UNCLEAN BASIC REMEDY IS ALSO THE SAME KEEP CLEAN , REGULAR CHEWING , CONSUMPTION OF TOBACCO RELATED STUFF eg CHEWING SMOKING WILL ADD TO THE SMELLS. ANS AGAIN STOP BAD HABBITS, USE STANDARD TOOTH PASTE, BRUSH N USE CORRECT TECHNIQUE CONSULT DENTIST FOR DEMON. MOST OF UR PROB OF BAD BREATH WUOLD B SOLVED.

Hello lybrate-user, good news is age is not a bar for orthodontic treatment, I totally understand your concern, we have an option of treating our patients with invisalign (aligner) nowadays. Which is totally transparent and invisible you can carry out your day to day life without any discomfort. When the aligners are installed for the first time you may feel little discomfort since it applies pressure on your teeth but you will be alright in few hours. Finally the greatest advantage is you can see your post treatment results even before starting your treatment.

This is basically pericoronitis it happens in erupting wisdom tooth please take combiflam for pain control (twice a day for three days) do warm salt water rinsing at least four times a day show it to a near by dentist as fast as you can he will examine and then prescribe you antibiotics.

Hi, the only difference between gutkha & panmasala is that pan masala does not contain tobacco. Rest all ingredients are same eg areca nut, slaked lime, flavouring agents etc. Bad effects of both just the same. Please avoid at all costs.

Dear lybrate user, normally ulcers take 7-14 days to heal properly; if they remain for a longer period, immediate dental consultation is mandatory. Drink plenty of water and fluid to keep yourself hydrated, avoid hot, spicy food and get yourself checked for any nutritional/vitamin deficiencies.

What is your age? for mal aligned teeth there are many treatment options today. This depends on the case severity, patients requirements, duration of the treatment etc. The very basic treatment is metal brackets. If you don't want metal there is ceramic braces. Both work same with only difference in looks. Duration in these treatment varies from 1 year to 2 average. You need to visit every month for activation. Other is clearpath aligners which are invisible, take lesser time lesser visits and you can follow a virtual treatment where you can see your results even before the completion of the treatment. You can write to me privately for their charges. Metal braces are most economical. You can send me your pictures for proper treatment plan.

Besides brushing twice daily, I strongly recommend rinsing your mouth with plain water after each meal. Also, brushing should be done approximately after half an hour after the meal as this is the time when bacteria start to act on the tooth. And lastly, after the meal at night, one should rinse with half glass of lukewarm water with a pinch of salt added to it.

Patients should visit their endodontists (especially trained to perform root canal treatment) or general dentist after the root canal treatment to have proper restorative work completed on the tooth.
