You are just 19 years old. I would suggest you to save your teeth and infact get a root canal treatment done for the same. Removal of teeth is not the only option.

Pain reliever in toothache ?

Analgesics can provide temporary pain relief in toothache but there is no such pain killer that can eliminate dental pain permanently. So I would suggest that you visit a dentist first for the elimination of the cause of dental pain. Regards.

For correction of this big gap you need braces treatment only. You have to visit a orthodontist for that. Don't worry if you are worried about your appearance, then there are various methods by which it doesn't look that bad. - you can select tooth colored braces - you can place braces on inner side so it won't be visible from front.

Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

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.

Brush twice daily n avoiding sweet won't solve a problem. Make an habit of gargling with water after you eat or drink anything. Avoid sticky n junk foods. Use a mouthwash regularly. Get scaling and polishing done. Regularly visit a dentist at least biannually.

You should visit md physician. Consult good doctor. 6 months is abnormal thing. Mri helps in diagnosis of soft tissue but it should be referred and diagnosed by doctor. As a dentist I can suggest you to visit a good dentist because tooth ache can be from jaw to ear to head known as a reffered pain. This pain can be so severe that it can wake you up in middle of night also. So better to visit a dentist also. Take care. Wish you healthy life ahead.
