TMJ pain can be due to misalignment (malocclusion) of or trauma to the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding (bruxism), poor posture, stress or anxiety, arthritis and other inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders, orthodontic braces, and excessive gum chewing. the treatment will vary depending on your condition. apply ice pack on the outer region. try some relaxation exercise for jaw muscles. meditation has to be done to reduce stress level. take soft diet n avoid chewing gums. consult a maxillofacial surgeon for complete diagnosis n treatment planning .

Please consider orthodontic correction over other 'faster methods' because until teeth are correctly aligned, no treatment would make your smile perfect. Orthodontist would suggest if he would be able to improve your soft tissue (lips) profile with treatment and correct your gummy smile line. If he suggests that this cannot be achieves with orthodontic correction, then you should consider other surgery or laser based options. Smile designing is an ongoing process over your life time! It requires you to keep your teeth clean, gums healthy and get frequent dental checkups. Do not lay if all on your dentist! Orthodontic correction: 1-1.5 years Conventional Smile Designing: Veneers and Crowns; three to four sittings Digital Smile Designing: Photographs and software based approach to shouw you what all can be achieved.

Dear bleeding from gums usually is due to tartar / plaque deposition on teeth. Brush twice a day, rinse vigorously after every meal and get a professional cleaning of your teeth done. This should resolve your problem.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

A fixed is bonded on the inner surface of your teeth. A removable one is seen from outside and is to be removed while eating. Both together work well after orthodontic treatment.

Are implants not possible if the teeth have been extracted many months ago or also if gums are not very broad?
Yes. Its possible to place an implant. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

I undergone rct in 2008 now crown is out, what are implications for not fixing another crown?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Patna
If you don't get a crown fixed then there are very high chances that the tooth will break. This is because a tooth becomes brittle after getting RCT done.

Visit the same dentist again. It shouldn't pain. Either the root canal done is not proper or else there might be some other reason. You can share xray if you have for better diagnosis!
