Hi bleeding is the sign of gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. You need to go for cleaning and scaling for plaque removal. Take care of your oral hygiene. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Take celin tabs once daily for 15 days.

I had pain after the RCT and capping of my teeth. This time I had approached another dentist who took an x-ray and said that the RCT was done only half way. Hence they have to do a re-RCT. He also said that the normal protocol is to take X-ray before, two while doing the RCT and one after finished. Is this the normal protocol. The doctor is charging me Rs. 3000/- for RCT and another 3000/- for the cheapest cap. Is this the right cost? How do I know what cap is good. There are discussions that RCT causes cancer. What are the chances or dangers of doing RCTs if I have to repeat them as in the above case?

I need to see the X-ray before I can comment on the rct done previously. There's are many such cases. The pricing is about right. But there are other caps which might cost a little bit more. But are precision made These caps are better as they last longer.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Kindly consult a physician & dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

hi...If it's anterior tooth then filling is the answer and for posterior tooth filling or crown can give good results but before doing treatment xray has to be taken in order to see the level n type of bone loss !

Hello sir, My lower jaw from right side pains when I speak or eat something. What should i do?
Hi, pain from your lower jaw can be due to many reasons. Since your age is 18 and you complain of pain in the jaw it can be due to the eruption of your third molars also called as wisdom teeth. I would advise you to get it clinically checked at a dentist.

Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Tooth decay can be prevented by a good maintenance therapy like brushing, flossing and using some mouthwash. Get a check up done annually by your dentist also. A tooth decay can be treated by cleaning the decayed tooth and doing a filling in the decayed tooth.
