You can take a pain killer tablet like brufen 400 / combiflam /diclogem for a temporary relief and consult a dentist for proper treatment of the tooth to avoid same problem in future. (note: pain killer tablets are also not solution because they only treat the symptom and not the cause of tooth pain. Also harmful for the body if taken for longer periods without proper supervision.) pain can be due to various factors visit your dentist and get a proper examination done which may include x-rays if necessary, to get a precise diagnosis, after which dentist can give you exact alternatives of treatment options and then you can make decision as to get which appropriate treatment suitable to your problem and needs.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Scaling is a painless and a non-invasive procedure. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

How to make my teeth white?
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. You may consult me in person. . DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Have to see what type of occlusion you have and what type of correction which is required. Cant say veneers will suit for all situations. Veneers or crowns will require minimum tooth preparation which is irreversible. If correction required is minimum even simple composite restoration will also solve your problem. If extensive correction required you may go for lingual brackets which no body can make out.

Pain after Root Canal

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS

Some patients even after proper root canal may feel a bit of pain during chewing and get confused with the prognosis of rct or question the expertise of the doctor. In reality it is due to the inflammation persisting in the periapical tissues and alveolar bone. Give it some time it gradually gets healed up. Sometimes it might take even a couple of months but with proper antibiotic coverage and oral hygiene maintenance it does get cured.

There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and heat in stomach. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Snoring can be due to many causes and due to obstruction anywhere in the breathing passage. To determine site of obstruction you need sleep endoscopy. Also to determine the degree of harmful effect of breathing obstruction on your body you need to get polysomnography (sleep study).

Cavities in teeth can't be treated at home. You have to get it filled with or without root canal treatment depending on the extent of decay. For whitening teeth, go for scaling and polishing. Teeth prevention is very simple. Brush your teeth twice daily and also use mouthwash. Clean your mouth with forcefully gargling of water after you eat or drink anything. Limit your intake of food to 4-5 time a day. Reduce intake of sweet and sticky foods.

Majority of people believe the right time to see an Orthodontist (M.D.S. orthodontist is a specialist who uses braces and wires to bring the teeth into perfect place, thus enhancing the smile) is once all the milk teeth fall and new ones erupts. This cannot be more wrong. Every child should be taken for an orthodontic checkup at the age of 7. Another criteria could be emergence of any permanent tooth that in an odd place or looks rotated, inclined, zig zag position.

Hi, the yellow color of your teeth might be because of stains which can be superficial and deep or even it might be the natural hue of your teeth. If the they stains are superficial they can be removed by a complete scaling procedure. Deeper stains can be removed by bleaching which can also lighten the yellow shade of your teeth to a certain extent. Bad smell from the mouth can be caused due to various reasons like, 1) tartar deposition in the teeth 2) smoking and pan chewing 3) dry moth due to reduce secretion of saliva 4) due to ulcers in the stomach its advisable to consult your dentist and get your condition treated accordingly. If you wish you can consult with me privately for further help.

Eating a piece of cheese after meals can prove beneficial as firstly, it helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals, and secondly, since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Depends, If the other teeth are well aligned, or nearly so, you could use standard removable appliances, or some of the newer aligner systems, e.g. The Inman Aligner. Whether these will work for you, can be assessed only after evaluation. With mild mal alignment, you could also look at restorative options such as veneers, crown etc, which, however, do involve some preparatory cutting of the tooth structure.

Infections affecting the throat may also affect other tissues and the uvula to swell. Allergic reactions may lead to rapid swelling of the throat and mouth (also known as edema). When this happens, it can spread and affect or infect the uvula. Injuries to the uvula can cause it to swell.To treat this,antibiotics,steroids and antihistamines are prescribed.

My teeth are not bright white and enamel is also damaged. Gum pains sometime. I want a bright smile. What should I do?

My teeth are not bright white and enamel is also damaged. Gum pains sometime. I want a bright smile. What should I do?
There are many causes of yellow or discolored and damaged teeth. A few of the most common:------------- 1. Drinks: Coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause staining on the teeth. Even white wine is not far behind in staining our teeth yellow, because its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These Acidic drinks lowers the Ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths.--------------- 2. Certain Foods: Colored candies, popsicles and other bright foods can cause staining over time. Think of it this way – if your tongue turns a bright shade of blue, chances are your teeth are getting some of that discoloration, too. Even healthy foods such as berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries) can stain teeth. Ketchup, curry and other sauces can cause staining problems over time, too.----------------- 3, Natural Aging Process: Quite simply, teeth yellow over time. It’s a natural part of the aging process that the white protective coatings wear down over time. So the longer you have your teeth, the more likely they are to become yellow or discolored.---------------- 4. Most of us are guilty of at least some of the above (and none of us can stop time). But the good news is that even if red wine is one of your vices and your teeth look yellower lately, there are things you can do to bring back the white.---------------- 5. How to make Teeth white------------ (a) Avoid Certain Foods/Drinks When Possible: We’re not asking you to give up your morning coffee, just to reduce the intake of the above foods as much as possible. Sometimes simply being aware can help us make better choices.-------- (b) Drink Water: After you’ve consumed a tooth-staining food or drink try to immediately follow it with a glass of water. Swirling water around your mouth can drastically help clear away the acids or staining. This simple step is free and easy, and can drastically help reduce tooth discoloration.---------------- (c) Proper Dental Hygiene: Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups help keep teeth healthy for a lifetime. Develop these habits early and you’re less likely to have dental problems down the line.------------- (d) Teeth Whitening: The good news is that there are many options available to whiten teeth. Some can be done at home while others can take help of Homoeopathic medicines.------------ Homoeopathic medicine------------ B. C-23 (Dr Reckeweg) Chew 4 tabs 3 times daily--------------- HEKLA LAVA TOOTH POWDER (WHEEZAL) Scrub teeth daily night------------ IN morning use any good quality tooth paste----------------- RINSEOUT (SBL) Gargles 20 drops in 20 ml luke warm water. Gargles 3 times daily while holding water for 20 seconds in mouth esp. After meals.------------
