Cavities might respond to hot and cold stimulus. Please get your teeth examined by a dentist. He might also take an x-ray to determine the extent of the cavity. He may ask you to go for root canal treatment if the cavity is too deep else he will remove the infected part of the teeth and restore it with a filling material.

I have a swollen gum above the wisdom tooth, its very painful, applied gum care lotion, can you suggest some antibiotic.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
I have a swollen gum above the wisdom tooth, its very painful, applied gum care lotion, can you suggest some antibiotic.
it is called as pericoronitis. . if swelling is not there in jaw or cheek ,treat it by rinsing your mouth with warm salt water. You should also make sure that the gum flap has no food trapped under it. If the pain and inflammation are severe, or if the pericoronitis recurs, oral surgery to have the gum flap or wisdom tooth removed may be necessary.

Self motivation is the best way. The chewing gums in the market are just to help you with quitting but you need to be strong willed.

Hello, broken teeth may be due to many reasons, either injury, cavitation, etc. Broken teeth may repaired by root canals, post and core and finally placing a crown. For all this you need to visit your nearest dentist as he/she will be in better situation to clinically access the situation.

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth
4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

Kids have a mind of their own when it comes to food. The unhealthier it is, the more they tend to like it. Most taste driven or sweet foods are harmful for your child’s oral hygiene. However not all foods that your children like to eat are as bad for their oral health, some even help strengthen their teeth.

Here are 4 foods that your children can have for healthy teeth and gums.

1) Sugarless Gum - It helps loosen plaque and increase the number of natural antibodies in the mouth. It also keeps the gums hydrated. While too much of anything is not good, these gums are good once in a while.

2) Crispy Vegetables - These might not be popular with children but can be made yummy with interesting dips to go with them. Raw carrots, celery, cauliflower, and green beans are chewing foods which clean the child's teeth and gums.

3) Natural Sugar - Sugar from milk, yoghurt and cheese are rich in vitamin D, phosphate and calcium. When consumed, they raise the pH level of the mouth which lowers the level of acids, hence reducing risk of tooth decay.

4) Vitamin C Rich Foods - Fruits like oranges, kiwis, strawberries, papayas and limes help kill bacteria that can cause gingivitis. They also aid a good supply of collagen in the child's gums. However, parents need to remember that one can eat citrus foods only after thirty minutes from brushing their teeth. This is because the citric acid in these foods can weaken the tooth enamel temporarily.

it is little early to have gaps n teeth . maintain oral hygiene . The best way to get rid of bad breath & improve oral health is good oral hygiene like brushing your teeth twice a day with colgate fresh mint toothpaste regular rinse with Mouthwashes (listerine )after meals . this will help to avoid the bacteria in plaque,that accumulates in the mouth, you have to visit dental surgeon ,discuss problem with him and take treatment that is routine cleaning and polishing of teeth to remove most surface stains and oral cleanliness to make sure your teeth stay healthy.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

Hello,Might be your wisdom tooth is on its way to erupt in your mouth. Sometimes there is no space for it to come up or it may be impacted in the bone. So you need to see your dentist first. Meanwhile you can take some pain killer medicine like brufen. Take care.

I'm suffering from teeth pain as I drink some cold thing. Can you suggest what should I do?

I'm suffering from teeth pain as I drink some cold thing. Can you suggest what should I do?
Hi sonali, your teeth have become sensitive to cold food-stuff and water. Sensitivity may occur due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Brushing Your Teeth Too Hard 2. Gum diseases 3. Dental cavity If you are applying too much pressure while brushing, it is likely to lead to a condition called as attrition, wherein the the outermost tough layer of the teeth (enamel) begins to wear, exposing the underlying structures that are more sensitive to cold stuff. If that is the case, you need to use a soft brush and put minimal pressure on your teeth while brushing. Also, you must switch to an anti-sensitivity toothpaste which will help reduce your problem to a considerable extent. In case you have an inadequately maintained oral hygiene, is likely that you may have developed a gum problem, which is manifesting as sensitivity. For that, you would be required to get a thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist. It will solve your problem. Besides the above, dental cavities also cause abnormal sensations to cold water. You will have to get it checked from a dentist, and if such a cavity is present, it may require a filling. You can consult me privately for more specific answers. Hope that helps.

you can use a sensitivity paste like senquel f.. and apply over affected part for 3 to 5 minutes.. and brush with the same paste.. but if the sensation does not subside ... it would mean that you have to get a root canal treatment done.. on the tooth prior to the treatment kindly get an xray to see how much is the tooth damaged...

M.D.S.
Dentist, Mumbai
What is your age? are you taking antibiotics for a long time? folic acid tablets, and applying candid cream will help. I suggest you have a thorough medical checkup to see if you are having any systemic problem, as 10 years is a very long time to have this.
