Hi lybrate-user. Betadine won't help you in preventing formation of cavities. Best way is to proper brushing of teeth, flossing after meals and rinsing with water at the end. Though some mouthwashes are available as caries preventive, maintaining proper oral hygiene through above mentioned methods is the best way to prevent caries.

I have a lump on my left back jawline. Its hard when I feel it it’s not under the chin or jawline just on the side of my jaw. When I bite down and when I open wide to yawn it hurts. Never got injured there as well. Don’t have any cavities and there isn’t any pain on my teeth.

Swelling on the side of the jaw could be due to parotid salivary gland. If possible send me picture and radiographs of that area. This is quite broad query, need to evaluate properly without concluding anything.

You do not want to see his mouth full of crowns but happily seen his teeth decaying. Crowns protection and area for chewing food for your child. Without crown resorations will get displaced very soon. Still you need to take proper care of hygiene of your kid as even after crowns you keep ignoring oral health tooth or teeth may get caries again. Get complete instructions from your dentist and follow them completely.

Jaw tumors and cyst sometime called as odontogenic tumors and cyst can vary in size and severity these growth are usually non cancerous (benign) but they can be aggressive and invade the surrounding bone and tissue and cmay displace teeth.

Importance Of Flossing

Importance Of Flossing

It is important to floss every night, as toothbrush doesn't clean in between the tooth. If you don't feel comfortable with dental floss you can use water flosser as well. If you floss regularly you will not get fresh cavities.

No don't worry normally people carrying infection in teeth at times are ruled out. If your mouth is infection free then you don't need to worry I guess.

Hello lybrate-user. If the tooth has cavity and causing severe pain it definitely needs an urgent treatment. Which may be root canal treatment which your dentist will confirm after evaluation and xray. Visit your dentist not only for relief but also to save the tooth.

It varies. On average it may vary from rs. 2000 to rs 5000 may be more or less than this. You can consult endodontist for specialist treatment. If you want to go to a general dentist then go to an experienced dentist.

Once cavities are seen we cannot cure with any tooth paste only thing we can do is get the fillings done for those teeth.

It can lead to holes in the teeth called cavities. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria make a sticky substance called plaque that can eat away at a tooth's enamel. Poor oral hygiene can raise your child's risk for tooth decay. Let's have a detailed discussion for better advice and healthy lifestyle.
