Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab dentaforce dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

People who are at high risk of tooth decay due to high sugar and starch diets; receding gums, poor oral hygiene, orthodontic treatment etc. Can use sodium fluoride anti cavity toothpaste under the dentist's guidance.

These products like tooth mousse or cream is a break through in anti cavity therapy, which helps strengthen teeth to protect them from decay and also contains mild abrasive that removes stains.

It may take some time and some pain. The area is made numb before extraction. Hammer and chisel are a part of dental armamentarium but rarely used now. And not every case will be the same. Better consult early so that situation can be managed better and with less trouble.

I have some ulcers on my tounge and my stomach also not well after I suffered from chicken pox almost 10 months ago so tell me how to get rid of these ulcers.

Root canal axis opening can be done to get instantaneous relief from pain, if the tooth is firm with enough tooth structure. High blood sugar levels has got nothing to do with root canal treatment procedures. However it matters for extraction of root stumps. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal.

You have cavity with pulp infection. You may need to go for rct. Get an x-ray done to know about the extent of the cavity. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. Or ibuprofen after meal.

Orthodontic treatment is a long term treatment and in colleges, you can never be sure that the same dentist is going to treat you for the entire duration of treatment. Select a good orthodontist of repute and go with it.

Hi, there are various reasons for mouth ulcers. It could be because of spicy food, medications, bad digestion, eating hard food etc. You can go for a professional check up for the exact cause and solution for the same. We can't comment without a physical check up.

I'm a 19 year old male. It's been almost 4 years since I visited a dentist and I'm ashamed about it. I feel terribly afraid to visit a dentist due to the fear of pain and needle phobia that i have. I finally found that there was something called sedative dentistry and I have learnt more about it on the internet. This gave me a little hope and looking forward to get treated. Vulnerable and urgently in need of help.

Yes there is. But its used for pedo(small childrens) in most of the cases or in case of a surgical procedure in case of adults. For small procedures like simple root canal treatments or simple extractions there is no need for sedation.Visit your dentist he will explain you the procedure and will guide you to over come your fear. Nowadays due to advance technology its not painful as it was years back. You make take diazipam before treatment . It will help you to over come your anxiety.

For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.
