Did you have any pain in wisdom tooth. Ever.? If there is pain and swelling around wisdom tooth. The pus comes out and that is actually responsible for smell in mouth some times. Tooth decay if you have deep cavities that can cause food lodgement and then that bad breath problem .usually bad breath problem arises when there is deposit /calculus on teeth. Kindly get it cleaned and polished by dentist .or else if your stomach remains upset al the time or you have acidity problem .then kindly consult a physician.

Hi Manish... If clove oil could cure toothache then dental colleges would have been closed... Consult and take proper treatment before it spreads to more teeth...

Once Xray of the concerned tooth is taken, the exact treatment can be shot. If it requires RCT, ask your dentist if single visit RCT can be performed. If not, you have to give the required time to save a precious tooth or get it removed to prevent future complications.

You might have tartar / deposit on kindly get it cleaned and polished by dentist. If there is any decay .kindly get an xray done to understand depth of cavity and will provide you with solution. You can use chlohex plus mouth wash rinse two times daily for 15 days.

Hi when there is high fluoride content in drinking water it will cause fluorosis and damage is irreversible you can stop further damage by stop consuming the high fluoride water .and if front teeth are not looking good then you can go for veneers.

You can go to any dentist. Decay will cost you filling or cap. It will cost you around 2000 per tooth. Cap will cost you more.

My father-in-law is around 70 years old. He has generalized chronic periodontitis since around last 10 years. He complaints of severe pain in max right 3rd molar after accidental contact with mandibular teeth. Tooth has grade 1 mobility. Adjacent tooth is grossly decayed and has only a portion of cusp remaining. I haven't examined his mouth. He cannot undergo extraction due to his medical condition. He's on anticoagulants after angioplasty since last five years. The pain is sharp shooting in nature and lingers on several hours after onset. Please suggest me what would be best for him at the moment. I am a final year student of dentistry.

If his INR, PTTK, PT is within normal range, he can be taken up for immediate extraction of offending tooth. Otherwise stop anticoagulants in consultation with treating cardiologist, and extract his tooth after 48-72 hours. For immediate pain relief he can use paracetamol tablet, get his tooth out of occlusion. Get his bad teeth extracted as and when his medical condition permits.
