If it is unbearable pain and you want to secure your tooth then rct is only one option. Otherwise go for extraction. Now a days modern techniques of rct are available. So curing is too much fast.

Bad smell in mouth, after finishing lunch or after having tea. Kindly provide any remedy.

Bad smell in mouth, after finishing lunch or after having tea. Kindly provide any remedy.
•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •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. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •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. You may consult me in person.

While preparing for RCT: Getting to know from a dentist if consuming an antibiotic medicine is advisable, as it can help in reducing the infection and swelling.

Now a days maximum people have habit of night grinding because of the stress throughout the day . Either you reduce the level of stress which is not possible so better get a night guard so the ill effect of grinding can be neutralised.

Hypersalivation is not a disease but usually a symptom of another underlying condition. These other factors can range from easily treated and common causes to rare diseases. Saliva is a clear liquid produced by the salivary glands in the mouth. It moistens food and aids swallowing. It also contains enzymes that help with digestion. Saliva can help to heal wounds and remove germs from the mouth, as well as prevent dryness and act as a barrier against irritants and toxins. On average, a healthy person produces between 0.75 and 1.5 liters of saliva each day. Saliva production peaks when a person is eating and is at its lowest during sleep. Too much saliva can cause problems with talking and eating, along with chapped lips and skin infections. Hypersalivation and drooling can also cause social anxiety and diminished self-esteem. Hypersalivation can be the result of: excessive saliva production an inability to effectively swallow or clear saliva from the mouth difficulty keeping the mouth closed Causes of excessive saliva production, leading to hypersalivation, include: morning sickness or nausea during pregnancy sinus, throat, or peritonsillar infections poisonous spider bites, reptile venom, and poisonous mushrooms false teeth ulcers, inflammation, or pain in the mouth poor oral hygiene severe infections such as rabies or tuberculosis severe or sudden pain regurgitation of saliva during heartburn jaw fractures or dislocation Difficulty swallowing or clearing saliva from the mouth can be caused by or associated with some underlying conditions, including Down syndrome, autism, ALS, stroke, and Parkinson's disease. If a person also has a sensory dysfunction, they may not always realize that they are drooling. Causes of an inability to keep the mouth closed, which can result in drooling, include poor neuromuscular control of the muscles around the mouth. Cerebral palsy is an example of such a condition. Difficulty keeping saliva in the mouth can also be due to: poor head and lip control a constantly open mouth impaired tactile sensation an enlarged tongue or poor tongue mobility poor teeth alignment nasal blockage Hypersalivation can also result from non-medical conditions, such as seeing, smelling, or tasting food, or even just thinking about food. It can also be caused by chewing gum or by feelings of excitement and anxiety. Symptoms Symptoms of hypersalivation include drooling, spitting, and excessive swallowing. Other related symptoms include: chapped lips softening and damage to the skin around the mouth infection of the skin around the mouth bad breath dehydration speech disturbance pneumonia poor sense of taste Hypersalivation and drooling may also cause psychological complications and social anxiety, as well impact their ability to eat or speak. People who experience hypersalivation are more likely to inhale saliva, food, or fluids into their lungs, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia. This may happen when the gagging and coughing reflexes are impaired. Diagnosis The aim of diagnosing hypersalivation is to pinpoint the underlying cause and then to recommend the best available treatment for each affected person. A diagnosis is important, as some of the potential causes of hypersalivation have serious complications. To diagnose hypersalivation, a doctor may include an examination of the following: the mouth, teeth, and surrounding skin tongue control, swallowing ability, and jaw stability tonsils and nasal airways alertness and emotional state hydration, hunger, and head posture A doctor will usually consider it necessary to assess other criteria, including: existing medical conditions and ongoing medication how and when hypersalivation occurs the amount of extra saliva produced whether or not the problem is constant or intermittent any adverse effects on daily life Once the cause of hypersalivation is established, a doctor may take the following factors into account when recommending a treatment: severity and complications age and mental status whether hypersalivation is chronic or temporary associated neurological conditions the possibility of improvement Treatment and management Dealing with hypersalivation is about treating the underlying condition that is causing it, as well as managing the immediate effects of excess saliva in the mouth. Depending on the cause, the treatment can include certain types of therapies, medications, and home remedies. In extreme cases, surgery may be considered. Therapy: This can include behavioral modification and speech therapy. People experiencing hypersalivation may benefit from help with posture and head control. They can also learn techniques for lip closure, better tongue control, and swallowing. Medication: The aim of medication for hypersalivation is to reduce salvia production. Anticholinergic medication may be used, although it has a range of side effects, including drowsiness, restlessness, irritability, urinary retention, constipation, and flushing. Treatment can also include a beta-blocker or botulinum toxin (Botox). Home remedies: Drinking plenty of water can reduce saliva production. Tooth-brushing and rinsing with mouthwash can also temporarily dry out the mouth. The successful management of hypersalivation and the resulting drooling can improve a person's confidence and self-esteem. Some causes of hypersalivation may clear up over time without treatment. Such causes include pregnancy, anxiety, and minor injuries. Other causes can pose more serious medical challenges. This category includes neurological causes and nerve disorders. If chronic conditions are the cause, treatment may include lifelong management of a person's hypersalivation.

Hello Lybrate user, orthodontic treatment, i.e braces in india starts from 25k and may vary from case to case depending on complexity. Since the time taken to complete the treatment is more than a year so most orthodontist take fees in installment after an initial charges. Hope this helps.

Try visiting a dentist. Black spot in front teeth is indication of early caries. You can get a composite laminate done to cover it.
