Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

Indications for Root Canal Treatment

Diploma In Cosmetic Dentistry, Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Indications for Root Canal Treatment

Having your dentist say to you that you need a root canal, can be a daunting affair. This means that the pulp or soft tissue inside a tooth has been damaged by bacterial infection. A root canal involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning the infection and filling in the emptied space. Not every tooth infection requires a root canal and hence it is essential to know the indication of a root canal.

Here are a few situations when a root canal may be needed:

  1. Pain: Discomfort ranging from a dull ache to a sharp pain can be a sign that you need root canal treatment. This type of pain is usually characterized by throbbing and may change as you switch positions. It is usually triggered by chewing, applying pressure on the tooth or eating something cold or hot. In some cases, the patient may not be able to indicate the exact tooth that is hurting but can only identify the painful area. 
  2. Gun tenderness: Swelling that indicates the need of root canal treatment can range from being slightly red and inflamed to pronounced lumps on the gums. In some extreme cases, this swelling may extend out of the gums into the face and neck region. Sometimes, a pus filled boil with a pimple like head may also form on the gums. If this head bursts, the patient may notice a foul taste in the mouth. This swelling can come and go as the tooth decay deteriorates and may or may not be accompanied by pain. Teeth may also feel like they have been pushed out of their sockets and are taller than usual. 
  3. Tooth discolouration: Discolouring of teeth can be a sign of internal tooth damage. This is especially noted if the teeth take on a dark yellow, grey or blackish tint. Tooth discolouration is fairly common in cases where the tooth has undergone trauma such as an accident etc. 
  4. Exposure of the dental nerves: At times during regular dental work, the nerves in the tooth may be exposed. This indicates an exposure of pulp tissue and can trigger pulp degeneration if left untreated. 

However, all of the above symptoms can be symptoms of other types of dental problems as well and do not necessarily individually indicate the need for a root canal. Only a dentist can properly diagnose a need for root canal treatment after a physical examination and testing.

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

cleanup is usually advised every 6 months as there are certain areas of our mouth where the toothbrush cannot clean well. A cleanup will remove any accumulations on your teeth. This may not change the yellowness of your teeth if the internal shade of your tooth is yellowish. If you want to change the shade of your tooth, you may need to go for dental whitening.

Is flossing good for teeth? And does it create gaps in teeth? And are floss picks good?

Is flossing good for teeth? And does it create gaps in teeth? And are floss picks good?
Yess flossing is a very good habit & it shud b done by everyone everyday after everymeal. Your toothbrush is not able to clean the spaces in between the teeth that thoroughly, that's y you need to do flossing & yes it does not create any space between the teeth because its very very less in thickness, just like a thread, but yes using toothpicks or pins in between the teeth can definately increase the spaces in between your tooth.

You can also for bleaching or whitening for more white teeth. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

Having ulcer in mouth and occurs at regular interval please suggest some permanent not solution.
Hi, to permanently treat the ulcers, we need to treat the cause. The cause can be stress, constipation, minor trauma, vitamin deficiency, etc. For temporary relief, you can apply dologel ct over the ulcers 4 to 5 times a day. For permanent cure, you should visit an oral medicine specialist. Regards.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. FOR SENSITIVITY: A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (Sensodyne Tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

Trigeminal neuralgia has long course of medicinal treatment. If medicine is no more effective then we can either go for alcohol injection which gives you relief for about 6 months or neurectomy which has very less chance of recurrence.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Nicles you are having cavities . having blood in mouth in morning shows poor oral hygiene . The best way to get rid cavities is filling of cavities regular rinse with Mouthwashes (listerine )after meals . you have to visit dental surgeon ,for filling .and ensure your teeth stay healthy.

Respected doctor. Is it true that teeth cleaning and polishing weakens them and creates gaps between tooth. Thanks.

Respected doctor. Is it true that teeth cleaning and polishing weakens them and creates gaps between tooth. Thanks.
Hi mah, cleaning and polishing does not weaken your teeth. Gaps are created by the debris which forms inbetween the teeth. so when we remove the debris it is seen as gaps.
