You can apply "mucopain" ointment. This will provide relief as it is a mild anesthetic agent. Also please continue taking b complex capsule or can take folvite tablet. Also increase water intake.

Things you need to know before undergoing root canal treatment

Things you need to know before undergoing root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is an effective procedure which is used to treat a tooth whose pulp has been infected. The treatment helps to remove the elimination and further protects the tooth from future microbial attacks. Root canals are physical hollows in a tooth which naturally consists of nerves, blood vessels and other cellular beings.

Learning about Root Canal Treatment-

Before one decides to go for root canal treatment, it is important to realize that this method is useful for preserving a dead tooth, not to save one. So, why does one keep the old tooth which is beyond repair? One can pull out the dead tooth and fill the gap with an implant along with an artificial tooth. However, the main reason for doing this is because it is much simpler than an implant. Even though the old tooth is dead, one can immensely benefit from keeping it as its structure will help you to chew food and talk properly.

In root canal therapy, the doctor cuts off the infected nerve tissue inside the tooth so as to prevent it from infecting the rest of the tooth. But there are consequences of root canal therapy as well. A root canal procedure makes the tooth brittle and much more fracture prone. This is because the inside of the tooth has been removed leaving the outside shell dry and brittle. This is why a root canal therapy often involves a second procedure called crown. A root canaled tooth needs to be protected because the tissue inside of it has been removed. Here comes the crown. The crown is a strong outer covering which is even stronger than the enamel which preserves the structure of the tooth thus preventing fractures.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may result in failure of the root canal treatment due to decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth structure.

Factors Determining the Success of Root Canal Treatment-

A root canal therapy is an attempt at saving the remains of your tooth. However, sometimes the damage is too much or the enamel is too brittle to withstand the procedure. These factors may cause the loss of a tooth.

Many factors contribute to the success of root canal treatment and not all factors can be determined in advance. Some of the factors are:

  1. individual resistance to infection.
  2. the size, shape and location of the canals.

A case may be more difficult if the tooth has blocked, curved, or narrow canals. The treatment may not relieve the symptoms and treatment can sometimes fail for unexplained reasons. If treatment fails, other procedures (including re-treatment or surgery) may be necessary to retain the tooth, or it may have to be extracted. During and after treatment, the patient may experience some pain or discomfort, swelling, bleeding and loosening of dental restorations and may also need antibiotics to treat any associated infections.

Another factor in this method is the development of an abscess near the root of the tooth if some of the infection remains back or if the antibiotics are not effective enough. Root canal instruments sometimes separate (break) inside the canal which may or may not effect the prognosis. If the separated fragment cannot be retrieved, it may be sealed inside the root canal, or require additional treatment in the future.

Failure to undergo permanent restoration placement by the dentist after root canal treatment within next few weeks may fail if the root canal treatment, decay, infection, tooth fracture and/or loss of the tooth.

Alternative Techniques-

The alternative techniques to root canal therapy include either no treatment or tooth extraction. Tooth extraction may be followed by any prosthetic replacement procedure like dental implants or a removable denture. One can also fix a partial denture which is commonly called a bridge in medical terms.

Conducting no treatments is often accompanied by factors like occasional pains, infection and a possibility of deterioration in the dental infection such that the tooth will no longer be restorable. If a massive loss of tooth structure occurs, then extraction may be the only option.

Taking all factors into consideration, root canal therapy is a very effective method for removing dental infection and is the best possible method in the field.

I am 34 but i think i dont have wisdom tooth. Is it possible? If yes then at what age does it come?

BDS
Dentist, Lucknow
You need to get an OPG Xray done so that the exact position of all your wisdom teeth can be ascertained. Sometimes they can get stuck in the jaw bone itself & sometimes they can be mal-aligned causing damage to the adjacent tooth. So its better to consult a dentist.

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: Brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.

I frequetly suffer from mouth ulser. What should I need to do give your opinion. Thnx.

Dentist, Bangalore
Hi. Can understand your concern. As per your complain there is no specific reason found which causes mouth ulcers and the treatment for mouth ulcers is based on relieving the symptoms. If you have pain you can use numbing gels like orabase gel, mucopain gel. Avoid spicy and hot food as it can be irritating. Avoid sour food as it can lead to aggravating the ulcers and relapses. Drink enough water to keep yourself hydrated. Do saline gargles. Take a multivitamin like zincovit for 15 days. Hope your query is solved.

Yellow lines if present from childhood could be due to mild fluorosis, if you feel these lines have come now could be due to some debris or tartar. Visit your dentist and take suitable treatment.

Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your" third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it.

Ulcer from last four month is little more time you first know the cause of ulcer in mouth main reason is said to be Hurry Worry and curry Nutritional deficiencies, Poor dental hygiene, Hormonal imbalance. Maintain good digestion and oral hygiene .apply boroglycerine and take B complex and folic acid tablet twice daily. You need to have precautions. Avoid eating spicy, oily foods and hot beverages. Include fresh fruits containing vitamin C and raw vegetables as part of your diet. Include fresh yogurt, buttermilk, cottage cheese and other dairy products in your diet. Maintain good oral hygiene. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Apply honey and turmeric mix on ulcer this helps in reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth.

Chewing of pan masala is not good for your health even. Abstain from the habbit. Pan masala must have formed a precancerous lesion. Stop chewing immediately. Avoid spicy food. Consult a Dentist. Intake of multivitamins especially vit. B12, vit A, vit E, vit C, will help you get relieved of the condition.
