You have to bear this, if there is no place for tooth to erupt it is best to get it remove. Please consult an oral surgeon and he will do needful. Go for extraction of your tooth.

I had root canal be for three years back and had cap on my molar jaw but from last 3 or 4 month there is a ulcer on the.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

FIND YOUR RIGHT BRUSH!!!!!
Have you ever wondered what to look when you are shopping for a right brush for yourself. We always read the contents, calorie intake etc etc when you buy something to eat but then why choose anything when it comes to taking care of your oral hygiene.
So, here are some tips you need to observe while buying a toothbrush for yourself
1. It should always be SOFT TOOTHBRUSH- No matter how delicate it might look , remember you are cleaning your teeth not your clothes. So never buy a hard or a medium brush. This is always written on either extreme top or extreme bottom of the toothbrush you are buying. Remember, it should be a soft toothbrush.
2. Any branded company recognised by the American Dental Association will do . I am not promoting a brand but remember to choose a good company because that will usually follow the guidelines followed by ADA to design a toothbrush.
3. Have additional features- Features you need are Gum Stimulators( for massaging the gums), 360 degree cleaning . If you are wearing braces, make sure you have a specially designed orthodontic brush for yourself.

So, i hope next time if i see you in the grocery store you know what to buy..

Hi no, there is no link between the tooth ache and vision. You can give ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water for temporary relief from pain. Get the x-ray done, this will help to decide the line of treatment. Either or rct. Pain may also because of gum disease, abcess in tooth, or periapical leisons. So condition should be diagnosed properly. You can also consult me with reports.

Regarding projecting teeth problem at this age the orthodontic treatment is not advisable. About your 2nd complain trimming can be done if possible and required. Try to eat at slowly and do some exercises like holding water and air in your mouth so that cheeks get stretched a little. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user" root canal treatment" it self explaining the half part of treatment. It is the cleaning of tooth root which consist of canal in it. Every tooth have crown and root portion. This crown as well as root portion cansist of cavity in it. This cavity contains pulp which is sensitive part of tooth and carries pain, hot and cold sensations. In root portion this cavity form a canal according to the shape of root. Once this cavity is is exposed to oral environment means it get infected. In such situation root canal is the only option for that tooth.

If you have the normal teeth then use the tooth paste which contain the flouride. If you have the sensitivity of the teeth then use the sensodyne protect and relive. Or vantage. If you have bleeding gum then go for the colgate pro gun health.

Gum diseases can be easily treated at the initial stage itself. Visiting a dentist and getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed can stop the disease then and there.

Hello doctor I am suffering from bad breathing /bad smelling of mouth. I am using sensodyne Colgate also used lysrine but no effect. So please tell me something.

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. 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.
