DEAR FRIEND.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

donot worry,i will suggest you for some home remedies which if followed properly will solve most of your teeth problems.

if your tooth is decayed or you have holes in it. you have to,start brushing your teeth regularly .so that further decay can be prevented.

if you have gum problem,start using chlorhexidine mouth wash periodically.this will reduce your gum infections. you can also do gum massage with gum paint.

you can do frequent warm saline rinses,after food to prevent any food debris from getting accumulated and causing pain and infection.

also do flossing for your inter dental areas.

meanwhile keep looking for a charitable treatment camp where dental treatment is carried out free of coast or on very nominal fees.then you can visit there and get the required treatment done.

hope it is helpful to you.

thanks

Hello,
I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist) and am glad to address to your query here.

To keep your teeth healthy and strong, brush after meals and visit a dentist regularly. This will prevent common tooth problems that can affect your appearance and make you look old and ugly.
Clove oil is an old remedy for relieving a toothache.
If you're eating out, rinse afterwards with a glass of water. This simple measure will wash away food debris in your mouth and will help reduce your chances of getting cavities.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at healthcaremagic through my profile directly.

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query,

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to kill the bacteria and contain the spread of tooth infection. It has been observed that a severe tooth infection can get to the jaw, lungs, and the brain, if timely treatment is not taken. Hence, the use of antibiotics is very important to stop the bacteria from affecting the other parts of the body.

Practicing good oral hygiene that includes brushing twice a day, flossing and swishing (rinsing the mouth) immediately after meals and snacks, is the key to healthy teeth.
restore your decayed tooth
flossing is also very important

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
