Get one x-ray done to know about extent of the cavity. If it is superficial then you need filling only. If cavity is deeper and pulp is exposed then you need rct. Dont delay to avoid further more pain and infection. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

My teeth are getting yellow day by day how to make them white.

I'm 20 years old and i'm gonna get braces, will they be effective at this age? also my dentist told me that I need to get my wisdom tooth removed via a minor surgical process, if I don't get it removed will it cause any problem further, also would getting braces hurt and what is the average duration of the teeth straightening process? are there any other options for teeth straightening, my teeth have no gap so extraction of canines is required so is there anything else I can get? I got a wire retainer for 6 months before.

Yes it can be done by braces at your age. Also, you can try smile designing option, which depends upon the clinical condition and orientation of teeth. Wisdom tooth has to be removed, if its direction of eruption is not normal and causing frequent problems.

My teeth are very yellow and I feel very uncomfortable while communicating or talking to people face to face. Please help.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

bad breath develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth which causes gum infection. this is the initial stage and hence can be treated easily. visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. this will help in removal of these layers. follow the instructions given by the dentist after the procedure is done. meanwhile you can use antibiotic mouth rinses 2-3 times a day, brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth, along clean the tongue and rinse your mouth after every meal. maintain proper oral hygiene

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Human beings have different shades of teeth. Do not worry that your teeth is yellow. See to it that you have no habits. Smoking, pan, gutka, over usage of black tea or coffee and coloured soft drinks. Vigorous and repeated brushing can do only more harm. Brush only two times a day. If you are still worried consult a dentist and undergo bleaching procedure which is a tooth whitening technique. Repeated brushing will cause loss of enamel which will lead to sensitivity and yellow colour. Use a soft brush.
