Root canal and crown is the treatment. Any root canal done tooth need to be protected with a cap/crown. If not protected it will fracture as in your case. Any tooth removal should be in complete. It depends on what part of the tooth is still remained. Usually small portions of root get resorbed with time and there is nothing to be worried. But still if you can send post extraction x-ray we would be able to assure you in complete. GOOD DAY, KEEP SMILING.

Toothache - Ways Homeopathy Can Treat It!

Toothache - Ways Homeopathy Can Treat It!

Homeopathy is often associated only with chronic illnesses. Another myth associated with this form of treatment is that it takes ages for the effect of the medication to be visible. However, in the case of a toothache, Homeopathy can be very relevant and can quickly ease the pain. Homeopathic treatment for toothaches addresses the underlying cause of the problem. Some of the common triggers for a toothache are tooth decay, an abscess or gum problems.

Take a look at these common Homeopathic remedies for a toothache:

  1. Plantago: Plantago is an efficient remedy for toothaches that is accompanied by tooth sensitivity, increased salivation and swollen cheeks. Plantage can be taken in the form of pills or applied externally on the tooth that is paining.
  2. Silicea: Silicea is the ideal Homeopathic remedy to treat tooth abscesses and their accompanying toothaches. It addresses the collection of pus around the root of the tooth and hence controls the pain. Silicea is also useful against toothaches that are aggravated by cold water.
  3. Chamomilla: If the toothache is unbearable and affects not one, but an entire row of teeth, chamomilla is what you need. It is also beneficial for toothaches that are aggravated by the intake of warm drinks.
  4. Hekla Lava: A toothache that is associated with a swollen jaw can be treated with Hecla Lava. This Homeopathic remedy will relieve both the pain in the tooth and the swelling of the jaw.
  5. Calcarea fluorica: Homeopathic medicine can be used to treat not only a toothache, but also the decaying of a tooth. Calcarea fluorica is known to slow the decay of tooth enamel. It also prevents the flaking of enamel and is has a beneficial impact on people who have enamel deficiency.
  6. Staphysagria: Unhealthy gums and retracted gums are common causes for tooth decay. Staphisagria is a Homeopathic remedy that can treat the drawing of tooth roots in such cases and the pain associated with them. It also addresses the formation of excessive plaque.
  7. Arnica: Arnica addresses the toothache and bleeding that follows a tooth extraction and the filling of dental cavities. It is also very useful against the pain and swelling of the gums that accompanies wearing false teeth.

Homeopathic remedies for toothaches offer fast pain relief. Since, Homeopathic medication has negligible side effects, it can be safely administered to both children and adults. However, a tooth ache should never be ignored so do not replace a visit to the dentist with self medicated Homeopathy.

Is Dentistry Expensive!

Is Dentistry Expensive!

Is dentistry expensive? 

One word answer to this will be a No!

Dentistry is not expensive, delay is.

Usually we dentist recommend to come for check up every 6 months, but we all are lazy especially for our own health. Going for a picnic or going to mall is all right but going for health check up is a big no.
As a result the small cavities which were possible to treat in 1 sitting, half an hour & less expense turns into a deeper cavity, reaching pulp & causing painc  & that is when we run to our dentist. We do get calls at midnight or early morning when we are not out of bed! pain is there since 2-3 days but now it has become severe! most of the time tooth requires root canal treatment or extraction.Patients do complain very time I come to you, you suggest root canal to which my reply is only time you come to me when you have pain. 
Now the same tooth which was possible to treat in 1 sitting becomes 6-8 sittings, half an hour becomes 5 hours & expense becomes 8-15 times.

Tooth ache due to cavity issues. Paining badly since 3 days. please help me soon.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

I had a root canal done 3 months back. For the past 8 days the same tooth is paining. I have been to my dentist twice this week. She took x-ray and said everything is ok. It must be a case of trauma. She advised me to take hifenac p for 3 days and stop. But my pain has not gone. Please advise whether I can keep on taking hifenac p till the pain is totally gone? How long can I take this medicine.

Hi lybrate-user. First of all thank you for your query. First thing I would like to ask is after rootcanal has a crown been placed over that. If not it can be a cause of pain. Next is that whether food is getting stuck in between this tooth and adjacent tooth. It can also be a cause. The causes can be various. So I suggest you to please if you can sent the xray and a picture of the teeth clinically inside the mouth to me We can see it and plan the treatment accordingly. In the meanwhile please do hot salt water gargle. Stay calm and cool. Hope I have answered your query. Thank you and have a healthy day.

Taking any treatment blindly will never help.. Consult and take proper check up to find out the cause... You can consult me through Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment..

I had a GIC filling done in my tooth. Cavity was not deep, it was a small cavity. After 15 days tooth stated paining. Went to dentist and there was high point in filling. Dentist removed the high point and verified by coloured paper. But still there is 30% pain in my tooth. Will the pain reside by its own or should I consult another dentist?
