How do you fix decayed tooth and bleeding gums?

I have 5 broken, rotten tooth in my mouth at the moment. All molars. Meaning I can t chew any food anymore. The problem is, my tooth gets rotten faster whenever I pay attention to it. The last one occured 4 months ago after I used coconut oil to swish, salt water to rinse, brush day and night... I m fed up. Is my teeth the problem or my gums? They bleed every night

Dentist 's  Response

Do not worry much as most of the broken teeth to an extent can be restored to near normal function with many new technologies and treatment procedures. Just in case the tooth is beyond repair you can go for extraction of it and choose from multiple options to replace the lost tooth.

Faster caries progression can be due to multiple reasons. I appreciate your good oral hygiene practice n request u to continue the same. Bleeding gums can be a sign of gum infections or deeper tooth infections. Kindly consult your nearby dentist so that he can guide you to the best possible treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
