Hi, apply plantago q/ few drops on cotton swab, place it on the affected tooth/ teeth and press it tightly, do it thrice a day. Orally, take mag. Phos. 6x/ after every 2 hours. Cavity can be the reason for toothache. Do visit a dentist for proper diagnosis, share the reports with me. In case possible, will help you in treating your problem. Home-remedies: -rub a few drops of clove oil or can even press 2-3 cloves in between the teeth on the affected tooth several times daily until the ache goes away. -rub a few drops on the affected tooth several times daily until the ache goes away. -apply a cool compress to outside of mouth or cheek. -mix 1 tsp of salt in a glass of warm water. Rinse your mouth with saltwater. Swirl it around in your mouth and spit it out. Make sure that you don't swallow. -soak a cotton ball in a mixture of a few drops of garlic clove oil and a small amount of olive oil, and apply the cotton ball to the area of pain.

Gum diseases are known for being reversed easily by getting them treated initially; same is the case with gingivitis. Being a milder form of gum disease, it can be eradicated through daily brushing and flossing and getting dental cleaning done regularly.

Fallen teeth can be treated by replacement of missing tooth with artifical tooth. Teeth problem are of numerious types. Fallen tooth is a gum problem. Gum treatment may help. However only after a xray it can be confirmed.

I am male 27yr. I am daily toothpaste and don't smoking and drinking but my teeth are light yellow. Suggest me.
Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. 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. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

Hi. halitosis can be prevented from twice brushing daily, cleaning of tongue, flossing of teeth, rinsing after every meal, by reducing junk food and increasing fibrous diet, drinking lots of water in a day as dry mouth is also a cause of halitosis

Dentist,

Obviously your tooth needs rct (root canal treatment) and crown (cap) on it. Rest x ray and dentist only can decide whether to save the tooth or not.

I am a 47 years man with border line diabetes. I clinch my teeth in the night while sleeping. What do I do?

MDS - Prosthodontist and Implantologist, Root canal certificate, BDS
Dentist, Noida
Hello clinching your teeth in the night is also called as bruxism. This may happen due to various reasons. The most common reason for bruxism is stress. However, you require a night guard to protect your teeth from wearing out due to bruxism. I would advise you to see a dentist for getting a night guard to protect our teeth.

I'm suffering with mouth ulcer often at least once in two months. First two days small dot shaped ulcer bubbles found in inner lips, couldn't close mouth longer as it gives burning sense irritation. Sometimes I used to take folic acid tablet. But sometimes it gets cured without taking tablets too. Is it an indication of any big health issue ? I'm worried as it comes often.

Your teeth are loose so badly. So it won't be possible to strengthen it. But yes dental implant is option for you if the oral hygiene is good and if you can afford the treatment. All the best

Is toothpaste a treatment option for sensitivity?

sensitivity can be because of various reasons like loss of tooth enamel, cavity, gum recession etc.
sensitivity is basically a symptom of some other problem. It doesn't make sense to try treating the symptoms when the actual cause is left unchecked. just imagine you are having fever due to malaria, and your physician gives you paracetamol for fever. will it help? same is the case when we use anti sensitivity toothpaste for masking symptoms and not treat the cause. cause will gradually worsen and a say a tooth that initially required only filling will now require root canal because you wasted time trying different toothpastes.

I personally advice such anti sensitivity toothpaste only when no other cause is clinically detected.

keep smiling. ☺

Only after clinical examination and possibly xray can one decide whether a cavity can be restored with a simple filling or requires a root canal. Tooth extraction is the last option only if no other measures are possible.

I am 21 years old male and have halitosis problem. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist,

Halitosis can be due to various reasons. If you have bleeding gums or tartar accumulation on your teeth, a dental cleaning will help you overcome the problem. If you have any other issue like constipation or acidity or sinusitis etc, you need to get the root cause of the problem treated. In the meanwhile you can use any over the counter mouthwash and maintain a good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily which will reduce the bad smell to some extent.

Most people say that after drinking tea one shouldn't drink water as it effect tooth health. Is it true.

Drinking water after having tea is good for blood circulation. But drink cold water immediately on hot tea causes teeth sensitivity problems and you should avoid that. Wait for 2 5 minutes and then drink water. Or drink water earlier than having tea.

There is always an option of getting the tooth removed. But wisely you are saving it by root canal. Whatever treatment is required your doctor will update you d same. If you feel you can visit another dentist and see.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted. Actually crown protects your tooth.
