•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

I have a gum reducing problem. Till I noticed it. It was late. Now the condition is. I hav a whole on the right side of my gum above molar teeth. My front gums are down badly. My dentist came up with a conclusion that it was because of wrong way of brushing. I followed the way they showed me. Of strokes. Up and down. But that doesn't seem to stop the problem. Kindly advice is something over it. And also it is possible to regrow the gums?

Hello lybrate-user, thank you for asking your question. From the info that you have provided, we can assume that you are have what is called'recession' of your gums. Recession is simple words is'moving backwards' this can happen due to a few reasons. 1. As your previous dentist suggested, it could be due to wrong brushing techniques. You need to use a soft tooth brush and brush your teeth gently. 2. It could be because of some trauma to that area. 3. It could be genetic. Meaning it runs in the family. 4. Another reason could be poor oral hygiene. For this you will need to pay more attention to carefully brushing your teeth. So, the treatment usually depends on the cause. As we have not evaluated or seen your teeth and gums, we can only provide some treatment options. 1. A good cleaning of your teeth especially of those affected areas. It is called subgingival scaling and root planning. It will help to start the healing by removing all the harmful bacteria present that could be causing the recession or'moving' of your gums. You can observe for 3 to 4 weeks while maintaining excellent oral hygiene. You may see that the gums are slowly moving back to its normal position. 2. If its not healed or some areas are not healing you can also think of getting a flap or gum surgery done. The dentist will use this method to cover the exposed part of your teeth. This procedure depends on the amount of bone present underneath. If it's less, you will need a bone graft which has to been done by a skilled dentist. And depends on your general health. Use a soft brush and use a mouth wash. We hope you find this information useful and you get better soon. Regards.

“Look, Mom! I Have a Loose Tooth!

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
It’s a pretty special moment when your child runs to you for the first time and tells you their tooth is loose. For a child, loose teeth means that they’ll be a big kid soon. For parents, it means their little one is growing up fast…maybe a little too fast. So what should you do when your child comes to you with the exciting news? Here are the things every parent should know about losing that first tooth.

When do kids start losing their baby teeth?
Children will lose their first tooth around age 6. They’ll continue to lose 3–4 teeth per year until they have lost all 20 of their baby teeth by about age 12.

Which teeth fall out first?
Baby teeth usually fall out in the order they came in. The front bottom teeth are often the first to go. The last teeth to fall out are usually the big molars in the back of the mouth.

Does losing a tooth hurt?
Losing a tooth shouldn’t hurt very much. If it is very painful, it probably means that your child is trying to pull a tooth that’s not quite ready to come out. If the pain gets bad, you can put an over-the-counter, pain-relieving gel on the gum surrounding the tooth. Make sure it’s for children, and don’t use it too much or too often.

Should I pull a loose tooth?
The short answer is no. It can tear the gum tissue around the tooth and cause injury. Allow your child to gently wiggle their tooth. But tell them they should let a tooth fall out on its own.

What happens if my child swallows their tooth?
Nothing, really. Accidentally swallowing a tooth isn’t a big deal. It will simply pass through the body.

Will there be a lot of blood when my child loses their tooth?
There shouldn’t be very much blood at all. When there is a lot of blood, it is usually caused by forcing a tooth out before it is ready. To stop bleeding, have your child bite down on gauze, cotton ball or a clean cloth until the bleeding slows.

When do permanent teeth start to grow in?
Usually it takes a few weeks for the permanent tooth to begin to poke through. It will take a few months more for the tooth to fully grow in.

What to do when i see a permanent tooth erupting before the baby tooth has fallen out?
You need to visit your dentist and get a examination done for your child. In some cases it may be advisable to remove the baby tooth to make way for the permanent one.

Hi, i have Smelling and bleeding problems in gum. Please advice
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

If gaps are not more, then it can be covered with composite filling material. Which is tooth color only. So no change in color after filling also.

Untreated dental disease can lead to serious health problems such as infection, damage to bone or nerve and tooth loss. Dental infections that are left untreated can even spread to other parts of the body and, in very rare cases, can be life threatening. Visit your dentist regularly.

Normally tooth colour varies from white to yellowish white. If there is stain on the tooth surface then you need to go for bleaching and polishing. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth after eating anything. Take care of your oral hygiene.

Dear , good evening. The ulcers are basically due to stress - anything - studies, health, if you are very emotional person. It could be vit b complex deficiency. I would advocate to have b complex forts capsules - one a day for 7 days. If it still persists - it would be wise to seek a dental check up - for there can be sharp tooth too causing the same problem.

For sinusitis you need to consult a ent surgeon for advise and for bad smell, essential precaution required to be taken is to maintain oral hygiene. Kindly ensure that you rinse after having meals. Brush twice a day, once in morning and after dinner and use listerine mouthwash twice a day morning and before going to bed. Visit your dentist once in six month for checkup and cleaning of teeth if required.
