We can't say whether your pain will not occur for two weeks or any particular duration. But these medicines will surely help in reducing the symptoms. Usually 3-5 days course of medicine will not give major side effects but its not advisable to continue the medicines for 2 weeks. I suggest you to go for treatment as this will take hardly 1 hour and later sittings can be given after exams if required.

Any age group people can use snowdent paste for white teeth? and snowdent is harmful to teeth for not?

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Avoid it in the kids less than 10 years. And use as little as required to brush your teeth. Any tooth paste that contains sodium lauryl sulfate is harmful. So use less quantity of the toothpaste always.

Causes Behind Tooth Pain!

MD - Bio-Chemistry, MBBS

Causes Behind Tooth Pain!

Mild to severe tooth pain can turn out to be debilitating and damaging condition if it is persistent. Also, the pain can spread to the rest of the head and give you an uncomfortable ache and tingling sensation all day long. So what are the causes behind tooth pain? Here's our list!

  1. Tooth Decay: The presence of food debris that has not been cleaned out can stay on and cause cavities and persistent tooth pain. This condition can also make the teeth extra sensitive and pain then emanates as a natural response to signify that all is not well in the area. This can also lead to sharp pain when bite an apple or munch on nuts. One must see a dentist for this kind of pain so that scaling and plaque removal can take place. 
  2. Injury: If there is persistent, throbbing pain after eating something that is too hot or too cold, then it might be more than mere tooth sensitivity. This condition could also point at chipped, broken or cracked teeth due to excessive teeth grinding or a fall or accident. It could also be caused due to sports injury. The dentist will usually take a dental X ray to find the cause of the pain and to unravel the extent of the damage as well.
  3. Inflammation: Constant pain may also point at inflammation of the pulp. This may be caused due to damaged roots. If this kind of inflammation comes with bleeding and fever, then you must see a dentist immediately. It can also mean that the pulp or root of the tooth is dying, in which case a root canal may be required. 
  4. Sinus: A dull ache in the sinus area of the upper teeth usually point at sinusitis, which is a condition that emanates due to pain in the nerves of that area. This pain can also happen due to cold and cough as well as an allergic attack that affect the facial muscles due to excessive sneezing and watering of the eyes. Also, a flu and fever can lead to this kind of pain. 
  5. Infection: Inflammation along with fever and bleeding can also point at infection. This can render the complete pulp tissue damaged. Also, the growth of abscess in such cases can cause acute tooth pain. The dentist will usually diagnose the issue with a tooth X ray before prescribing antibiotics and carrying out a root canal for severe cases. 

Persistent toothache with other symptoms should always be checked by a dentist so as to rule out long term damage that can result in tooth loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

There is a gap on left lower jaw after a tooth removed .For new tooth which method is correct.Stitching or fixing by latest technology ?.

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
There are several techniques available to replace a missing natural tooth. I don't know what you mean by "stitching. In any case, dental implants are the most recent advancement in this field, and do have several advantages over other techniques. However, there are drawbacks as well, to each technique. You would have to sit with ur dentist, discuss the pros and cons of all possible options and decide which one suits you the best. Hope this helps.

I have a problem of recurrence canker sore. It usually happens every 30-60 days. Please advice.

I have a problem of recurrence canker sore. It usually happens every 30-60 days. Please advice.
CANKER SORES- HOME REMEDY TREATMENT They can be triggered by factors such as smoking, stress, trauma, or vitamin and mineral deficiencies. 1. Irritation from poor-fitting dentures, rough fillings, or braces can aggravate canker sores and should be treated by a dentist. 2. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS): SLS, a component of most toothpastes, is a potential cause of canker sores. Try an SLS-free toothpaste for several months to see if such a change helps 3. Flossing teeth daily and brushing teeth and gums for at least two minutes two to three times daily may help prevent canker sores. 4. B vitamins ? B1, B2 and B6. Take a daily B complex. 5. Lactobacillus acidophilus: (Chew four Lactobacillus tablets three times per day to reduce soreness) 6. Chlorhexidine mouthwash used four times daily can speed healing of canker sores 7. Avoidance of certain kinds of food or beverages (e.g., spicy, acidic, sharp) that cause irritation to existing ulcers might help reduce discomfort. 8. Applying ice directly to ulcers for about ten minutes at a time might help reduce pain as well. 9. Canker Cover is a gel-like protective patch can be placed over ulcers. 10. Hydrogen peroxide might applied directly to ulcers and allowed to remain for about one minute at a time. Peroxides can be used up to four times daily for up to seven days, but more frequent or prolonged use might irritate the oral mucosa. 11. Salt water rinses (one to three teaspoons of table salt in four to eight ounces [120 to 240 mL] of water) or baking soda pastes may be tried to reduce discomfort. 12. Analgesics such as acetaminophen (T. Crocin) or T. ibuprofen daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, and allergy), might also help reduce pain with canker sores. 13. Herbal Aloe vera or lavender oil applied topically to ulcers might have some utility in reducing pain and healing time TREATMENT FOR CANKER SORES Prescription Medications We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. 14. Amlexanox 5% oral paste (Aphthasol), is an anti-inflammatory agent. 15. Sucralfate suspension 16. Topical corticosteroids have been shown to reduce pain from canker sores. Systemic corticosteroids may be useful for patients with more severe or frequently recurring cases. 17. Topical tetracycline regimens may be useful for reducing pain and duration of ulcers. The downside of topical antibiotics is that they might increase the risk of thrush. Oral doxycycline 20 mg twice daily may reduce ulcer recurrence.

What I do to make my gum pink ? these black gums spoils my personality. Please suggest me what I do ?
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Quit habits if any. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. Advance procedures (for pink gums) 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.

Toothache and Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Howrah
Toothache and Homeopathy

Homeopathy is often associated only with chronic illnesses. Another myth associated with this form of treatment is that it takes ages for the effect of the medication to be visible. However, in the case of a toothache, Homeopathy can be very relevant and can quickly ease the pain. Homeopathic treatment for toothaches addresses the underlying cause of the problem. Some of the common triggers for a toothache are tooth decay, an abscess or gum problems.

Take a look at these common Homeopathic remedies for a toothache:

  1. Plantago: Plantago is an efficient remedy for toothaches that is accompanied by tooth sensitivity, increased salivation and swollen cheeks. Plantage can be taken in the form of pills or applied externally on the tooth that is paining.
  2. Silicea: Silicea is the ideal Homeopathic remedy to treat tooth abscesses and their accompanying toothaches. It addresses the collection of pus around the root of the tooth and hence controls the pain. Silicea is also useful against toothaches that are aggravated by cold water.
  3. Chamomilla: If the toothache is unbearable and affects not one, but an entire row of teeth, chamomilla is what you need. It is also beneficial for toothaches that are aggravated by the intake of warm drinks.
  4. Hekla Lava: A toothache that is associated with a swollen jaw can be treated with Hecla Lava. This Homeopathic remedy will relieve both the pain in the tooth and the swelling of the jaw.
  5. Calcarea fluorica: Homeopathic medicine can be used to treat not only a toothache, but also the decaying of a tooth. Calcarea fluorica is known to slow the decay of tooth enamel. It also prevents the flaking of enamel and is has a beneficial impact on people who have enamel deficiency.
  6. Staphysagria: Unhealthy gums and retracted gums are common causes for tooth decay. Staphisagria is a Homeopathic remedy that can treat the drawing of tooth roots in such cases and the pain associated with them. It also addresses the formation of excessive plaque.
  7. Arnica: Arnica addresses the toothache and bleeding that follows a tooth extraction and the filling of dental cavities. It is also very useful against the pain and swelling of the gums that accompanies wearing false teeth.

Homeopathic remedies for toothaches offer fast pain relief. Since, Homeopathic medication has negligible side effects, it can be safely administered to both children and adults. However, a tooth ache should never be ignored so do not replace a visit to the dentist with self medicated Homeopathy.

From last one month I am noticing blood from my gums while brushing and irregularly. Can you suggest some cure for it? I would be grateful.

From last one month I am noticing blood from my gums while brushing and irregularly. Can you suggest some cure for it...
Irregular brushing technique will certainly cause the gums to bleed. Bleeding may also be due to infected & swollen gums. Advise investigation (OPG x-ray) with clinical examination for the treatment to check for bone loss & pockets. Adv. artificial enamel filling, deep cleaning or surgical curettage, a 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. 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.

Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your" third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it.

I have a bridge in right side of my upper jaw. Its sensitive now. She'll I remove my bridge and do implantation?

Hi the bridge that is overlying the teeth either may be poorly fitted or it may have become loose that is why food is getting lodged there thus making your teeth sensitive. So you need to visit your dentist and get that checked. Also you may opt for implant after a thorough eexamination of your opg or xray for that area by an implantologist. Thanku.

For healthy gums, massage eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth daily. It will increase blood activation and will keep your gums safe and healthy.

I am 20 year old. On the brush time bludding in my mouth. And my skins above the teeth are cutted, as like as paria in my teeth what I can do? I use the synsodine toothpaste.

Bleeding gums happens due to poor oral hygiene. Get the cleaning done first from dentist. And if you have sensitive teeth then only use sensodyne toothpaste. Otherwise its not required. You can use any fluoridated toothpaste.
