Brief Answer:
yes, diclofenac will help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.

The pain in the lower front teeth can be because of the gum infection or tooth infection.

Nothing to be panicked about, consult a oral physician and get it evaluated, You need to get a radiograph done to confirm the diagnosis.

Mean while, If i am your treating doctor, i would have suggested you to take a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin (if you are not allergic) and an analgesic like diclofenac. Once the diagnosis is confirmed we can treat accordingly with scaling or root canal treatment. Do saline gargling.

This is the possible diagnosis and treatment plan based on your description of the lesion. If you can upload the images of the teeth in question, i can give you exact diagnosis and treatment plan.

I hope my answer will help you, take care.

Thanks for the details doctor.
I have uploaded the pics now.

In the picture back.jpg in the back side of the teeth there is a small infection kind of white bubble is there.

Now a days i use to get this kind of pain randomly in my mouth in the gum area sometimes and get pain. Then after a day i use to get white liquid pus from that and pain reduced.

Please let me know do i need to do anything specific to avoid this.

Brief Answer:
Gum infection, scaling, orthodontic treatment

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your reply and the images.

As per the images you have uploaded, it is because of the gum infection. The gums and the bone around the teeth are getting damaged because of the mal aligned teeth and the deep bite which is resulting in abnormal distribution of forces over the lower teeth.

The white liquid coming from the inner aspect of the teeth is nothing but the pus discharge secondary to gum infection.

So consult a oral physician and get it evaluated. Along with the above said medicines you need to take metronidazole which is effective in gum infection.

Later get the teeth treated with scaling and root planing. The mal alignment of the teeth can be treated with braces or orthodontic treatment.

I hope my answer will help you. Take care.

My 5 year old son started having stomach cramps a month back with constipation and later followed by loose, watery stools . We consulted doctor1 insisted for ultra sound scan of stomach & prescribed Ofloxacin syrup for 3 days . Ultra sound scan said Multiple subcentimeter lymph nodal enlargement noted within mesentery . Doctor1 reviewed and said nothing to worry about this and no treatment for this and it will subside once infection goes off. After the treatment loose motions stopped but little stomach pain here and then with bloating continued. After a week, boy had some chocolates and little spicy food resulting in loose, watery stools and stomach cramps again. Doctor1 reviewed and prescribed ofloxacin metronidazole thinking its diarrhea. After giving it or 3 days, symptoms didn t reduce and vomiting started as well. We changed doctor & doctor2 reviewed and prescribed Ziprax 100 mg ( cefixime ) along with Domstal and ORS. We got Stool test report and it was normal with 2-5 puss cells. We also gave for stool culture and that report showed no culture. After reviewing the reports doctor said stop antibiotics (3 days over anyway) and with ORS he will be normal in few days. Now, from couple of days, vomiting sensation stopped but he is not able to digest all the food he used to take. Stomach cramps has reduced but not stopped. Bloating is still there but reduced. Still having greenish loose hard and then watery stools once or twice in a day. He is able to take light /soft food and we are giving it frequently with ORS. We are not able to understand why he is not becoming normal , its been a month already and we are worried a lot. Please help us with your suggestion. You can write to me at YYYY@YYYY Thanks, Prithvi

I ve been diagnosed with diverticulitis and am on my second round of antibiotics ( augmentin ). Tried Flagyl but have had an allergic reaction twice. I m on a low residue diet and have had some diarrhea. This morning I noticed a black fuzzy object when I wiped, about 1/4 inch long. I was totally freaked out. Is this something I passed?
