You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Kindly consult a physician for other complaints.
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. Irregular brushing technique with a worn off brush will certainly cause the tooth abrasion, gums to recede & thereby resulting in root exposure. Exposure of (dentin or cementum) layer of the tooth or trauma to the root nerve tissue causes sensitivity. Adv cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment with a cap for deep abrasion.
By the description you have given, it is difficult to come to a conclusion regarding the cause of the problem without actually seeing the teeth and the gums.
I'm guessing that it may be either due to a wisdom tooth or another tooth that has a deep decay.
In any case, you might need to take an x-ray for a definitive conclusion.
In the meanwhile, I suggest you take hifenac-p for the pain twice daily. And further medications can only be given after knowing a medical history. You can connect with me directly via this platform, give more details, and I can provide you with a better answer
hope your question has been resolved. Have a great day.
Sensitivity in your case can either be due to a diseased tooth or due to a recent sinusitis episode.
If you have had a recent history of cold or sinusitis, and if the infection is still present (a small amount of infection not enough to cause symptoms of sinusitis) may be in contact with the root of your tooth/teeth that are in close proximity with the sinus.
If this is the case, then taking appropriate antibiotics can relieve you of the pain.
It might also be due to a diseased tooth that may have a decay or a crack which may cause the pain. This needs to be assessed by a clinical check-up or a photographic check-up (provided it is clear enough and covers the affected area).
Hope I could resolve your query. Feel free to contact me directly via this platform.
Have a great day.
I would suggest you to stop chewing on pan masala as you must be well aware of the other ill effects of pan masala like the precancer like lesion in mouth. As far as sensitivity to the cold is there you can take any otc antisensitivity paste but if it is to hot also, then you will need a consultation with your dentist.
Yes scaling helps. When there are deposits on teeth, due to them gum recedes leading to exposed root surface in mouth on which you feel sensitivity. More the deposits more sensitivity you will feel after scaling, but that is going to be temporary. After scaling you need to follow instructions thoroughly, if you don't, problem can recur. Just because sensitivity might increase for a week doesn't mean that you will not get your scaling done. If you don't get scaling done then deposits will continue to increase and gums and bone will continue to recede. In some span of time your teeth will become mobile. Get your scaling done, continue using sensitivity paste (apply paste for 2-3 minutes on sensitivity area then brush), ask your Dr. for gum paint and use that, do warm salty water rinses every 2 hours for minimum 15 days
all this will help.
If there is no relief from sensitivity even after using sensodyne toothpaste then its better to consult a dentist as there are number of causes due to which sensitivity occurs. Cavities in tooth or teeth also can cause sensitivity which can be treated by only filling the tooth or teeth. Depending upon anti-sensitivity pastes can only increase the depth of the cavities if present and may lead to more problems like tooth pain, pus discharge for which rct may only be the solution left. So be safe than sorry!
