Solution of sensitivity problem? When I eat cold or hot food my teeth are paining. Please suggest me.
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and/or artificial enamel filling and/or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. 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.

Problems With Sensitive Teeth - Know In-depth About It!

Problems With Sensitive Teeth - Know In-depth About It!

Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you? does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally? if so, you may have sensitive teeth. 

Possible causes include:

  • Tooth decay (cavities)
  • Fractured teeth 
  • Worn fillings 
  • Gum disease 
  • Worn tooth enamel 
  • Exposed tooth root 

Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. One of the following treatments may be provided: -desensitizing toothpaste. This contains compounds that help block transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve, and usually requires several applications before the sensitivity is reduced.

  • Fluoride gel - An in-office technique which strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations.
  • A crown, inlay or bonding - These may be used to correct a flaw or decay that results in sensitivity.
  • Surgical gum graft - If gum tissue has been lost from the root, this will protect the root and reduce sensitivity.
  • Root canal - If sensitivity is severe and persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your dentist may recommend this treatment to eliminate the problem. 

Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain. 

Are You Involuntarily Grinding Your Teeth?

Are You Involuntarily Grinding Your Teeth?

People may clench or grind their teeth unknowingly and it may happen both during day and night. Grinding or clenching of teeth, especially at night, is sleep-related and is called nocturnal bruxism. Bruxism during the day is associated more with the clenching of teeth and jaws rather than grinding and is more likely due to anxiety, stress or even subconsciously while concentrating or during heavy exercising. Occasional teeth grinding usually does no harm. However regular and persistent teeth grinding may cause pain and discomfort to the jaws, teeth may get damaged and other oral health complications may arise. 

Causes- although teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it often occurs during sleep and is more likely caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth. It can also be caused by a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

So what dental symptoms you should be looking out for?

- fractured, chipped or loose teeth
- a dull headache, sore jaws and/or ear pain
- aching teeth, and stiffness in the face and temples, particularly after you've just woken up
- sore jaws while you're eating, especially at breakfast time
- sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks
- intense jaw clenching

Dental solution to the problem-
- splints and mouth guards. These are designed to keep teeth separated to avoid the damage caused by clenching and grinding. They can be constructed of hard acrylic or soft materials and fit over your upper or lower teeth.
- dental correction. In severe cases "when tooth wear has led to sensitivity or the inability to chew properly" we may need to reshape the chewing surfaces of your teeth or use crowns to repair the damage.

Toothache - 7 Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Toothache - 7 Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Odontalgia or severe toothache is characterized by extreme pain or inflammation of the tooth and its surrounding areas. The excruciating pain that you might experience may stem as a result of gum infection, tooth decay, infection of the dental pulp, abscess and due to certain other reasons like extraction or filling of the teeth. Another key reason for extreme toothache is the fact that a number of heart problems such as myocardial infarction and angina tend to affect your dental health negatively.  

While some toothaches might occur sporadically, they might pose a danger against your overall well being in the long run if the condition is left untreated. Homeopathy can serve as the perfect antidote to your toothache problems and its effects are noted to be significantly higher when it comes down to the question of long-term consumption.

Here is a list of homeopathic medications that might prove to be a pain alleviator for your dental complications:

1. HEPAR SULPH AND SILICEA
Root abscess responds positively to both Hepar Sulph and Silicea. For fever accompanied with occasional chills due to severe toothache, Hepar Sulph is considered to be the perfect remedy and tends to significantly decrease the level of swelling and pain. On the other hand, if your face swells and there is an incidence of gum inflammation, Silicea must be used to numb the effects of root abscess.

2. PLANTAGO
Plantago is noted to be the most commonly prescribed medicine for toothaches and for treating sensitivity. The pain extending to the ears from the teeth receives maximum relief due to the effects of Plantago. It might have to be taken internally or applied externally depending on the severity of the toothache and its accompanying conditions.

3. STAPHYSAGRIA
Sensitivity is best taken care of by Staphysagria and resolves the problem of worsening of toothache when any drink or food is consumed. Bleeding gums and excess salivation is also another aspect that is looked after by Staphysagria.

4. ARNICA
Tooth extraction and filling may often lead to the consequence of nerve-wrecking pain in the gums and the affected area. For this, Arnica is prescribed to assuage the nerve pain and must be taken in along with Hypericum, another homeopathy medicine, for best results.

5. MERC SOL
Problems of halitosis and excessive salivation that tend to occur simultaneously with toothaches can be solved by a dosage of Merc Sol. Bleeding gums, looseness of teeth and sensitivity are all taken care of by the same medication.

6. HECLA LAVA
For jaw swells along with toothache, you must always opt for Hecla Lava. The effect is instantaneous and relieves both swelling and pain.

7. CHAMOMILLA
Chamomilla serves as the best remedial homeopathic medicine for easing heat sensitivity that is likely to worsen the existing toothache. Drinks and food, either hot or cold, can then be consumed easily because of the numbing effect of this medicine.
