Don't eat it more than once a day. Clean your teeth properly after you eat or drink anything. Get you teeth x-rayed to determine the extent of decay. Get your cavities filled accordingly with or without root canal treatment.

Does oil pulling really whiten your teeth? And can I do it daily? How it overall affects my teeth?

It doesn't whiten like bleaching. Yes it prevents staining. It's a very good healthy habit if you do it daily for both your teeth and overall health. It prevents decay and improves gum health.

Chew sugar free gum for fifteen to twenty minutes after you eat to keep your mouth fresh. It also helps prevent tooth decay by removing any food stuck on the chewing surface of the teeth.

Is root canal a better option instead of extracting a paining Wisdom Tooth? How frequent a pain killer a should be taken to relax a pain?

As far as wisdom tooth s concerned, it s always better to extract it since it s a rudimentary just like appendix (hardly plays any role in mastication) but, if, an opppsing teeth is present in the same arch, one should consider r. C. T preferrably.

How Much Pain Will I Have After a Root Canal and When Should I Seek Help?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
How Much Pain Will I Have After a Root Canal and When Should I Seek Help?

Highlights

  • Pain from a root canal is usually mild.
  •  In most cases you should be able to manage it with over-the-counter pain medications, like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol).

A root canal is a major procedure, so pain after a root canal is normal. A root canal involves deep cleaning inside the canals (the inner chamber of the root) of your tooth, which can in turn irritate surrounding nerves and gums.

The pain shouldn’t last forever. In fact, a root canal is meant to help you avoid pain related to a decaying or fractured tooth. It’s normal to experience mild to moderate pain for a few days after a root canal. Any pain beyond this point may warrant additional cleaning of the canals or other procedures.

Initial recovery period

In the past, root canals were extremely painful. This is one reason why people sometimes avoided such procedures. Dentists now have pain-relieving measures that can be used to reduce the amount of pain you experience during the procedure.

Before the process begins, dentist will apply a local anesthetic that minimizes pain. You might still feel pressure during the cleaning, but you shouldn’t be in pain during the actual procedure.

As the local anesthetic wears off after the root canal, you might experience mild pain and sensitivity. This is related to the cleaning process. During the cleaning process, your dentist makes a small opening in the crown of the tooth and cleans out diseased pulp inside the pulp chamber of the tooth. While uncomfortable, any pain and sensitivity following a root canal should only last a few days.

Since the pain experienced after a root canal is usually mild, you’ll likely only need over-the-counter pain medications for relief. 

You should also avoid chewing hard foods immediately following the root canal, as this can induce more pain.

When to seek help

Root canal pain should decrease over time. If you still experience pain or swelling, you should see your dentist. Most people need one to two sessions for a root canal to be successful. In severe cases, you may need more cleaning sessions. 

Recurring pain could be an indicator of this.Your symptoms should ease up if you’re taking any over-the-counter pain medications. If they don’t, your doctor may recommend prescription-strength ibuprofen or narcotic pain relievers. These are only taken on a temporary basis.

Once your tooth is completely treated, your dentist may put a crown on top of it. These can be made of metal, porcelain, or gold. The idea here is to prevent future damage to an already delicate tooth. Sometimes pain is a temporary side effect as you get used to a newly placed crown.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Pain beyond a root canal should be addressed with your dentist. Beyond taking medications temporarily, there are other things you can do to manage pain from a root canal. 

Taking care of your teeth is a must, and you should avoid hard and crunchy foods until your pain improves. Quitting smoking can also help.

You need urgent attention by dentist to fill teeth, for root canal treatment and for teeth cleaning and gum curettage surgery. It will avoid further pain and agony of diseased teeth and gums. Hope for best of your oral health.

Hi. It's called hypersalivation. No need to worry. It would come down slowly over a period of two to three years.

Hello everyone! Most of times our concerns are the yellow deposits around the teeth. We brush hard thinking that they will get removed. But truth is that even if you brush 100 times a day, they won't come out. These yellow deposits are films of bacteria and can only be removed by a dentist by procedure known as Scaling. If you don't want these deposits, floss and use a mouth wash daily. Because your toothpaste doesn't conatain anti bacterial agents in sufficient quantities.

I Had Hyper Thyroid more than 10 Years. Now I Lost So Many Teeth. Is the effect of that disease?

Dentist, Chennai
I Had Hyper Thyroid more than 10 Years. Now I Lost So Many Teeth. Is the effect of that disease?
Yes, there is absolutely a link between hyperthyroidism and dental health. In fact, there is such a strong link between thyroid problems and dental problems. In these patients, there is elevated risk of gum disease, heart disease, dry mouth (xerostomia), cavities, and dental caries, enlarged / swollen tongue (macroglossia, distorted sense of taste (dysgeusia) etc.

X-ray is required for proper diagnosis and treatment. If wisdom tooth is coming in abnormal position then you have to go for extraction. Visit to a dentist.

Hello lybrate-user. Dental caries, wear off in your teeth, fractured tooth, are the main factors causing toothache. Regular visits to a dentist, going for professional teeth cleaning once in every 6 months helps you maintain proper oral hygiene. See a dentist soon and get the needful.
