Permanent molars come in around age 6. Thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth can prevent decay in the pits and fissures. sealants can significantly reduce caries. these days mothers come & get sealants on their kids teeth to protect them. sealent is just like lamination to protect your teeth . get it done now .

No one is asking you to take medicines. Medicines are not allergic. Human being is allergic to medicine. Keep your teeth clean, visit a dentist and get them cleaned.

Dear Lybrate user, Please visit your dentist and get a check up done. The dark spot /cavity could be present in between two teeth or there could be a gum problem present between two teeth which causes pain. Don't worry, proper check up and treatment will relieve your pain.

Teeth cleaning and teeth whitening are two different things. Cleaning is done to make your gums and teeth healthy while whitening is done to improve your smile profile and esthetic value. So if you want to improve your smile and get a celebrity teeth then you must go for bleaching. Bleaching is of two types. Office based and home based office bleaching is best because you are under the supervision of a specialist while home bleaching kit is available on the online market.

Pain Even After Root Canal - What To Do

Pain Even After Root Canal - What To Do

When a small cavity isn't treated in time, the tooth decays badly that normal filling cannot solve the problem. In such cases, your dentist will probably advise you to undergo, a root canal. When performing a root canal, the dentist will remove the nerves and pulp within the tooth, clean the inside of the tooth and seal it. After this procedure your tooth will not sense anything and should be pain free.

However, in some cases you may still experience pain after root canal and there are four main causes of this pain:

  1. Swelling of ligament around the tooth: One of the signs that you need a root canal is swelling of the gums. Even after the nerves and pulp within the tooth are removed, the ligaments around the infected tooth may still be swollen. This can take some time before the tissue is normal again. In most cases this is the cause for pain after a root canal procedure.
  2. Damaged tissue: Part of the root canal procedure is to clean the insides of the tooth. Here the dentist must be very careful to not go beyond the tooth. In some cases the file used to clean the tooth may go beyond the root and damage the tissue there. Another possibility is that the sealant used to fill the tooth may go beyond the root, thus aggravating the tissue. This can take some time to heal and may cause pain.
  3. Excess filling: After the tooth has been cleaned, the dentist fills the tooth with a sealant. If excessive sealant is filled in the tooth, it may become taller than the surrounding teeth, which puts extra pressure on the tooth and results in soreness and pain. The dentist will have to remove the excess sealant in order to resolve this issue.
  4. Phantom pain: Phantom pain is rare when it comes to root canal. This occurs when the nerve leading up to the tooth still behaves like it were connected to the tooth despite the nerve within the tooth being completely removed. The peripheral nerves will need to be treated to resolve this issue.

In most cases, these events cannot be prevented. There is also no reason to expect that this is a symptom of your root canal being a failure. Stay in touch with your dentist and brush and floss your teeth regularly. You will soon notice the pain subsiding.

No remedy will improve smell at this. You must have teeth cleaning & polishing by dentist. Then you can take help of such mouthwash.

For increasing blood activcation in your gums and keeping them healthy and safe, try massaging eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth on a daily basis.
