There must be cavity or a deep fissure in your tooth. Get if filled and you should be ok. Or your teeth might be sensitive, try using Colgate sensitive pro relief. It has good results.

Any single tooth having black, brown, punk or yellow discoloration as compared to other teeth is suggestive of dead tooth pulp. Such teeth are often associated with trauma many years back and are not painful. If you see any such tooth, get it treated to avoid hidden complications.

Hi, lybrate-user, boils often occur when our immune system gets weakened due to unknown reasons. These are further aggravated when you are under physical or mental stress, over-pressure of work in daily routine matters, menstruation period etc. These days boils are very well treated with lasers. The lasers treat your boils giving no pain. Al, l the best.

Save a Knocked Out Tooth!

BDS, Certification In Oral Implantology

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults. With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be successfully replanted and last for years. It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible after the tooth is knocked out. Quick action will increase the likelihood of saving the tooth.

Saving a knocked out tooth
1. Pick up tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) not the root
Locate the tooth immediately; do not leave it at the site of the accident. The tooth should be handled carefully touch only the crown to minimize injury to the root.

2. If dirty, gently rinse tooth with water
A. Do not use soap or chemicals
B. Do not scrub the tooth
C. Do not dry the tooth
D. Do not wrap it in a tissue or cloth

3. Reposition tooth in socket immediately, if possible
The sooner the tooth is replaced, the greater the likelihood it will survive. To reinsert, carefully push the tooth into the socket with fingers, or position above the socket and close mouth slowly. Hold the tooth in place with fingers or by gently biting down on it.

4. Keep tooth moist at all times
The tooth must not be left outside the mouth to dry. If it cannot be replaced in the socket, put it in one of the following:
Emergency tooth preservation kit
Milk
Mouth (next to cheek)
Regular tap water is not recommended for long term storage because the root surface cells do not tolerate water for long periods of time.

5. See a dentist within 30 minutes
Bring the tooth to a dentist as soon as possible, ideally, within 30 minutes. However, it is possible to save the tooth even if it has been outside the mouth for an hour or more.

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.
