A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

Though braces appears little costly,but it is not. As this is a permanent treatment without adding any artificial structure for your teeth lifelong.This treatment runs for one year or little more time depending on requirement. This is the best treatment option available

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.

Mother And Child Dental Health - The Vital Link You Can't Ignore!

Mother And Child Dental Health - The Vital Link You Can't Ignore!

It's a myth that since a child's milk teeth are bound to fall off, they don't require any special care or dental treatment. Several researches and studies have proved that any decay or damage to a child's milk teeth leads to problems that affect the permanent teeth as well. Also, a mother's improper dental hygiene during pregnancy proves to be harmful for the developing baby. Here are some useful tips if you're planning a baby or if you already are a proud mother of one!

  • Your dental health also contributes to your overall health. Just like you pay regular visits to your Gynaecologist during pregnancy, make sure you also find yourself a friendly, neighbourhood dentist to take care of yours and your child's teeth.
  • The hormonal upsurge during pregnancy casts its effects on your gum health too. This leads to increased inflammation and plaque build-up in your oral cavity resulting in gazillions of bacteria in your mouth. What goes in your mouth, goes inside your body too. All these bacteria are transferred through the blood stream to your baby resulting in the following ill effects:
  1. Preterm babies with low birth weight
  2. Increased risk of premature delivery
  3. Gum bleeding
  • Do not defer your dental treatment. Most dental treatments can be safely done during the second trimester. Any emergency dental problem can be taken care of after obtaining a consent from your gynaecologist. 
  • First visit, first tooth. The first milk tooh appears at 6 months of age and that's when you need to schedule your baby's first appointment with the dentist. Keep your kid's gum pads clean by wiping them with a clean wet gauze pad or wash cloth after every feeding. Start brushing your child's teeth with a kid-sized toothbrush when milk teeth begin to erupt. Don't let your child sleep with sweetened milk bottle or pacifier in the mouth.
  • Be a role model. Overcome your own apprehensions related to dentistry and inspire your children to take care of their oral health. Good dental habits need to be taught at an early age. Monitor your kid's toothbrushing till 8-9 years of age. Teach them the importance of regular dental visits.

Follow these useful tips and pass on a healthy legacy to your child. A mother always wants to give the best of everything to her children and what's better than a healthy smile.

From last 5 Months my tooth gum little swell up and it also shrink downward from teeth.

From last 5 Months my tooth gum little swell up and it also shrink downward from teeth.
You have got infection in your gums which is why it's swollen and also receding from your teeth. The best course of treatment is to go to the dentist and get a scaling done. This will help eliminate your infection. Besides maintaining oral hygiene is of prime importance if you don't want your gum infection to recur.

Jaw pain: jaw pain can be due to various reasons and mostly the main suspected reason is stressful life style. Which might lead to constant grinding of the teeth maybe in the night or during the day, leading to tenderness of the muscles supporting your jaw. In many instances it could be due to wisdom teeth newly erupting into your mouth or wisdom teeth erupting into your mouth in a wrong position or the wisdom teeth unable to erupt at all. All these leads to pain in the muscles around the mouth and can also lead to swelling and inability to open the mouth completely. In any case, you need to visit your dentist to actually find out the cause for the pain and appropriate treatment. I hope I answered your query.

Hello lybrate-user. Sensitivity may be due to wear off in your teeth, hard brushing technique, grinding of your teeth during nights, dental fluorosis and many other factors. See a dentist as soon as possible and do the needful.

Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.

Dear lybrate user, tooth abscess is usually accompanied with swelling, sensitivity to hot and cold and throbbing pain in the tooth or foul smell and salty taste in the mouth. The cause of abscess is tooth decay so the tooth involved is never healthy, it is decayed. The abscess needs to be drained and proper root canal treatment is required to prevent the infection from spreading to the jaw.

Only an x ray can decide whether you need to go for filling or extraction. If u want yo go for filling then choose tooth colored filling as amalgam leads to secondary caries. And it's too d acted then opt for extraction
