Go to a dentist for xray of that tooth. Then only it can be judged that filling will be sufficient or root canal treatment is required. Hope you get well soon:)

Bruxism and Its Treatment

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Bruxism and Its Treatment

Occasional teeth clenching is fairly common disorder among adults and children throughout the world. But if the teeth grinding occurs repeatedly, it can cause significant damage to your teeth or gums (with chances of potential tooth loss) and overall dental hygiene. Furthermore, recurrent episodes of bruxism might cause other serious complications such as severe headaches, facial pain or disorders in the temporomandibular joints (located in the forepart of the ear).

According to recent studies, 15-33% of children tend to grind their teeth while they develop their first few pairs and generally stop with the gradual development of adult teeth. In adults, this disorder might occur as an involuntary response, completely unbeknownst to the concerned individual.

Causes-

The most likely causes of bruxism are as follows:

  1. According to the doctors, in 70% of the adults, repressed stress or anxiety might result in teeth grinding while you are sleeping.

  2. Bruxism might also occur as a result of excessive consumption of alcohol, caffeine, sleeping pills, tobacco, and selected anti-depressants.

  3. Bruxism might also occur due to depression and the sheer competitive nature in certain individuals.

  4. Bruxism might also occur due to a serious disorder such as Parkinson ’s disease.

  5. Bruxism might also occur as an axillary of other sleep related disorders such as excessive snoring, sleep apnoea, etc.

  6. If you have an irregular structural alignment among the upper and lower sets of teeth, Bruxism is more likely to occur.

  7. In children, Bruxism might occur as a response from to pain in the ear or tooth.

Treatments-

The following treatments can be implemented to treat permanent instances of bruxism:

  1. If it is caused by severe stress and anxiety, stress management therapies can be very useful to prevent Bruxism.

  2. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth while you are asleep, you can consult your doctor to provide you with mouth guards.

  3. Regulated consumption of alcohol, tobacco might help prevent Bruxism if it is caused by a side effect of either one of them. Likewise, if the disorder occurs due to a side effect of antidepressants or any other psychiatric medications, you must consult your doctor to change the particular medication.

  4. You can also opt for Dental correction procedures like night guard if the reason of the disorder is the misalignment of the upper and lower teeth or other related dental complications. A custom fit night guard will not only safeguard your comfort, but improve the quality of your smile as well.

  5. Although medications are not common, muscle relaxants (for a certain period of time) or Botox injections are prescribed by doctors when the patient does not respond to other forms of treatments. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Taking a large no. Of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

Usually, a popping noise in your temporomandibular joint isn’t anything to worry about if it’s not causing you any problems. If it does start to cause problems, there are many invasive treatments that you can try.

Consult nearest dentist. Do not rely only on medicine as the pain is the sign that something is bad on your tooth. Pain is not a disease. Medicing is not a treatmet. Thank you

Cold sensitivity can be due to dental decay or abrasion of the teeth. You can use a desensitizing paste for temporary relief. Please consult a dentist and get it diagnosed and then proceed with the appropriate treatment.

Hello lybrate-user most probably the bleeding is from your gums. Get a Dental check up done and cleaning of teeth (scaling and polishing) done thereafter brush and floss regularly.

What are the symptoms of cavities? What are the remedies to get rid from cavities?

What are the symptoms of cavities? What are the remedies to get rid from cavities?
•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Dear lybrate user, your tooth which was treated for root canal has been reinfected, this indicates failure of root canal treatment. If you got any capping/crown done after RCT, it has to removed and re-RCT has to be done. If the condition of the tooth is worse, it will have to be extracted/removed. Re-infection after root canal treatment usually happens if complete elimination of infection was not done previously. It totally depends on your choice and the condition of the tooth whether it can be saved or not.

Hi I have a burning sensation in my mouth when I eat something or chilli. So sir or mam can you tell me what is my problem?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
Since duration of your problem is not mentioned, I would suggest to take vitamin B12 supplement, zincovit capsule together. Try to avoid hot and spicy food stuffs for the time being. If problem still persists for longer than one or two months it indicates some other underlying problem. You have to visit an expert dentist regarding the same.

Hi Am 19 years old when I wash my mouth mornings small amount of blood is coming from my mouth.

A.C.C.I - Accredited and Certified Course in Implantology, MDS - Pediatric & Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Jammu
Dear , the fact that blood is coming out on washing one's mouth is inidicative of inflammation in the gums. Inflammation in the gums is generally due to tartar/ calculus deposits or food remaining stuck there. So, it is important for us to have the same checked by a good dental surgeon and follow up with the recommended dental treatment.

Now a days direct composite restoration is very good and done in single sitting. But first you have to visit a dentist. He can only diagnose the problem. Whether it can be done or not. At times when gap is too much we go for capping too. It depends on case to case.

Flossing once a day increases your life expectancy by six years by preventing gum disease and heart disease. When you floss, you help prevent your gums from becoming inflamed. What is happening when your gums are inflamed is that you have a chronic bacterial infection in your mouth. This harms your arteries through two mechanisms: the bacteria find their way in to your arteries and hang out (causing plaques), and your body mounts an immune response to the bacteria in your mouth, causing inflammation (which in turn can cause your arteries to narrow). This makes it hard for your heart to do its job and can lead to heart disease.

Hi sometimes a rct requires multiple visits and you have to complete the procedure immediately. Don't worry about the pain it will subside once the rct is done properly. After completing the rct please cover the tooth with a crown for proper chewing.
