Do not chew anything hard from that side as you may fracture your tooth. Then the only good solution is to get a dental implant. Please get a new crown fabricated from another dentist and increase the life of your tooth.

Thanks for your query. The pain in the tooth can be because of the tooth infection secondary to decay. Nothing to worry you need to take a course of antibiotics and analgesics to reduce infection and later get the tooth treated with root canal treatment or extraction. Take care.

How much time braces takes to fill the gap between the front teeth. And what it costs.

How much time braces takes to fill the gap between the front teeth. And what it costs.
On an average the complete braces treatment (upper and lower teeth) takes around 18 to 30 months. But if it's only front teeth closure then may take around 6 months to a year, depending upon the gaps. The cost will vary according to the dr, the area, types of braces etc.

Hi lybrate-user, the toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. So, only if your toothache has a gum problem as a cause, will you get relief from scaling.

Halitosis (bad breath) is a commonst condition when you wake up from bed, even brushing during previous night. I advice you to swish mouth daily befre bed, and if you don't find it useful you can visit a dentist where he wil evaluate further.

This is exactly the thick mucus which is troubling your mouth, so this is due to dehydration of the mouth area, this will get hydrated with fresh fruits, salads, shakes and iron rich diet and milk products in any form and dry fruits like raisins, and get your layer consistency back to normal

Whenever I eat something cold or hot I can feel something in my teeth with a bit pain. so, what should I do?

Whenever I eat something cold or hot I can feel something in my teeth with a bit pain. so, what should I do?
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. 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.

I use manual brush once a day and use paste on finger once. I think I am not doing anything wrong.

I use manual brush once a day and use paste on finger once. I think I am not doing anything wrong.
Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. Manual brushing is not enough to remove the plaque and calculus from the teeth. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Hello Lybrate user, you have swelling in gums and pus so that means you have infections of gums. A course of antibiotic and mouth rinse with a antibacterial mouthwash will help to reduce the swelling. Warm saline rinse will also help. Visit your nearby dentist for further investigation.

I am 25 years old guy. I am facing bitter tongue taste for 10 days. Actually I started smoking from one month is this the reason for my problem.

Hello Lybrate user, yes the reason for your bitter tongue is smoking. See how it has made your body change in just a month. Quit the habit. Avoid spicy food for a while. And if you stop smoking you wouldn't experience bitter tongue again.

I wanna know is teeth whitening safe? Which is better uv light or charcoal teeth whitening?
First get cleaning and polishing of the teeth. If still you feel that they are yellow, you can do teeth whitening / bleaching. It is safe. Now a days even home kits are available. But please do any whitening procedure under dentist supervision. A drawback of this procedure may however be an increase in sensitivity of the teeth.

Just a reminder, adult teeth are not milky white, they have a slight yellowish tinge. Your teeth might be becoming yellow due to stain deposition on the teeth surface, they are not removed by brushing. Go for professional cleaning of teeth which will remove stains and calculus present on the teeth. If you are not satisfied with the results, go for bleaching.

Dear lybrate-user, the symptoms which you have described relate to gum disease in which there are calculus, tartar, plaque deposits on the teeth and the gums become weak and swollen. There is also bleeding from the gums and foul smell from the mouth. The teeth become loose this maybe what is commonly known as pyorrhoea. However you need to consult a qualified dentist and get your teeth cleaned and the gums treated.
