Is peroxide good for teeth even if I have holes in my teeth and it hurts a lot ? Until I have money to fix them.

Is peroxide good for teeth even if I have holes in my teeth and it hurts a lot ? Until I have money to fix them.

Mouthwash is better: Using straight peroxide is not healthy for the mouth. It can cause an imbalance of bacteria resulting in a super infection. It would be healthier to brush more often and use a mouth wash with flouride. ...Read more

I have actual holes in my teeth by the gumline. They don't hurt (yet). Are these cavities, and what should I do if i cannot afford a dentist?

Seek help: Holes in teeth are cavities, small localized infections that can spread and become acute problems. You can't afford not to see a dentist. Call your local emergency room and ask for information about low cost dental clinics. Or seek treatment at a dental school where costs are lower. Or ask your dentist to work out a payment plan with you. Dental emergencies are more expensive than dental care. ...Read more

I have tiny holes in my back teeth, but my dentist says I don't have cavities. What are these holes then?

I have tiny holes in my back teeth, but my dentist says I don't have cavities. What are these holes then?

Could be normal: If your dentist says they are not cavities, I would believe him. You might be seeing pits in the biting surface which are developmental formations created during tooth creation. you might consider having sealants placed to fill in the spots to prevent cavities from developing. ...Read more

Dentist: Make an appointment with a local dentist who can examine you with radiographs to see between your teeth. Hopefully they can be restored with simple fillings. ...Read more

I have two cavity holes in my front teeth, roughly how much would it cost to crown them? and what is the best natural crown type

I have two cavity holes in my front teeth, roughly how much would it cost to crown them? and what is the best natural crown type

Cavities: Without knowing the exact extent of the decay, it is hard to determine what treatment you need and what the total cost would be. Simple fillings are less expensive that root canals, posts, and crowns. That being said, since fees vary so widely from town to town and office to office, a fee quoted you over the internet is meaningless. Seek the advice of a local dentist who is going to treat you. ...Read more

I have a hole inbetween my gums and teeth after a deep cleaning, is this normal?

It is normal: It is likely that you finally have tartar removed between your teeth and it feels like a "hole". If you are not certain or concern, see your dentist for re-evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

What can I do to stop getting holes in my teeth?

What can I do to stop getting holes in my teeth?

First See a Dentist: Holes are either from decay or trauma. Decay is a process where food particles become trapped in the deep grooves of the biting surface of your teeth or between the teeth. If this food is not removed by brushing & flossing, oral bacteria "eat" the food, digest it and give off acid which "eats away" your tooth causing the hole. Frequent visit to dds and excellent oral hygiene are important. ...Read more

Why do holes in my teeth hurt when sugar goes into them?

Bacteria: Once the decay passes through enamel, the dentinal tubules, which have passages to the nerve of the tooth, become exposed, resulting in a toothache. The pain may worsen with exposure to heat, cold, or sweet foods and drinks. ...Read more
