You can restore your decayed tooth - by getting root canal treatment done. Followed by placement of crown. Whether your tooth can be saved or not depends upon its condition. Second option is to get it extracted

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. CAUSES ?

If you are low in iron, vitamin B12 or folic acid ? If you have a condition where you drool saliva at the corners of the mouth ? If you wear dentures that do not adequately support the corners of the mouth HOME REMEDY 1. Honey 2. Aloe Vera Gel 3. Lip Balms and Moisturizers 4. Drink plenty of water 5. Cocoa Butter 6. Homemade Mixture 7. 2 tablespoons of tea tree oil, 1 tablespoon of Vitamin E oil, and � tablespoon of petroleum jelly should be mixed and applied over the cracked area as many times possible in a day. 8. Lemon 9. Cucumber 10. Neem Leaves TREATMENT (PRISCRIPTION MEDICINES) 1. Miconazole ointment or candid ointment - need to apply to the corners of your mouth usually 2-4 times daily for 2 or more weeks 2. Chlorhexidine mouthwash used four times daily 3. Course of tablets such as Fluconazole 4. C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. HOW CAN YOU PREVENT ANGULAR CHEILITIS?

As per your reports you have used desi siting toothpaste but have no relief. You may have enamel erosion because of bruxism, hard brushing, age and had any orthodontic treatment before. Consult a nearby dentist for laminating or veneering for permanent relief. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

Hi, the most common cause of bleeding gums is due to gum disease called gingivitis. I would advice you to get your teeth cleaned by a dentist as gingivitis is caused by deposition of plaque and calculus on teeth. Regards.

Six Reasons You Need Regular Dental Checkup

You may not look forward to a dental examination, but you can't avoid it. A dental checkup every six months is crucial to your dental health and to maintain that beautiful smile. Skipping a dental checkup may save you time and a little discomfort now, but can cost you much more pain, time and money in the long run. Here are 6 reasons to maintain a regular dental check up schedule.

Fight cavities
A clean up is a big part of a dental examination. No matter how well you brush and floss, there will always be spots that you miss out on. With time, plaque and tartar can build up in these spots leading to cavities if not addressed in time. The worst part about cavities is that you can feel them only once the tooth has been damaged. Thus, if you skip your dental examination, you may need a filling instead of a simple cleaning.

Prevent gum disease
Plaque and tartar affect not only your teeth, but your gums as well leading to diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. These are marked by shrinking of the gums that makes teeth sockets loose and eventually lead to tooth loss. Gum disease treatment can be very painful and expensive hence it is best to get plaque and tartar cleaned regularly before they begin to cause a problem.

A brighter smile
Your daily cup of coffee or tea can stain your teeth with time. Wine and cigarettes also contribute towards making your teeth look dull. A professional dental cleaning can help remove these stains and give you a brighter smile.

Find hidden problems
X rays are also an important part of a dental examination. An x-ray can detect problems that lie under the surface like misaligned teeth, bone decay, tumors and cysts. These problems rarely show any symptoms in their early stages and hence without an x-ray you would have to wait for it to advance to a more painful stage before seeking treatment.

Boost overall health
Regular dental checkups can also lower your risk for heart disease and stroke. In addition to checking your mouth, a dentist will also check neck, jaw and lymph nodes during a regular check up for swelling and other abnormalities. This can help in the early detection and treatment of a number of diseases.

Detect oral cancer
Oral cancer is easily treatable if diagnosed in its early stages. However, the only way to diagnose this correctly is by visiting the dentist. A test for oral cancer is pain free and takes hardly any time.

So, think about it. Visiting the dentist may make you a little uncomfortable but in the long run is well worth.

How to Manage Broken Front Tooth in Children

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
More than often, parents have to deal with children coming home with a broken front tooth / teeth. Dental problems, injuries sustained during physical activities and games, munching on certain foodstuffs (nuts, certain candies) contribute in a big way to chipped front tooth. It is advisable for parents to consult a dentist at the earliest. Left unattended, the situation might result in infections or other dental complications.

A broken front tooth is often the hardest to fix. The effectiveness of the treatment is largely governed by the nature and severity of the damage.

1. In case of a really small crack or a break, the problem can be fixed by simply filing the broken surface to smoothen it.

2. Dental bonding comes as a huge relief in situations where a small portion or corner of the front tooth chips off. The procedure is simple and hassle free. The surface of the broken tooth is fixed or bonded with a bonding material. The material is shaped well to give it a more natural appearance. The bonding material is finally hardened using UV light.

3. Dental crowning comes in handy when a large chunk of the front tooth cracks or breaks off. To understand the condition better, an X-ray of the affected tooth is carried out. If everything goes fine, the dentist proceeds to the next step. The tooth to be crowned is then filed down to ensure sufficient space to fit in the crown.

In some cases, the break results in enormous loss of the tooth. Under such circumstances, a filling material is used to assist the tooth in holding the crown. Next, an impression of the tooth (receiving the crown) as well as the opposing tooth is made using putty. Till the new crown is being manufactured, the dentist may fix a temporary crown (generally made of acrylic) to protect the tooth. In the next sitting, the dentist replaces the temporary crown with a permanent one. The crown used may be of stainless steel, all porcelain, all ceramic, metal, porcelain fused to metal or all resin.

In case of an extensive damage, Root canal is performed prior to the dental crowning. This goes a long way to ward off any possible dental infection or injury.

Is he concerned to any doctor.
There is...
If the cavity at an initial stage, it is the best time to get it filled. The pain will start when the decay will reach near the nerve endings. Than you will have to go for root canal treatment. So better get it done.

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. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. 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. 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.

frankly back and tooth pain are irrelevant but only possibility could be that as u have pain in joints and that indicates chronic bone loss so if it the case then sorrunding bone all over tooth also become less hence cause gum infection followed by pain and tooth removal. .
