Hi,

I hope you are feeling better after the first session. Usually, when a tooth has an infection, some dentists like to wait between 1 to 3 weeks before finishing it. They usually place an intra-tooth medicament which kills the bacteria between the canal system so that the tooth will be sterile before the dentist completes the root canal treatment. To answer your question, you should be ok with the wait. Just make sure you make it to the appointment.

Feel better.

Hi,

Hope you are not in pain. You should see your dentist immediately so they can take an X-ray to find the best solution for the chipped tooth. Typically, if the chip is not too serious, it can be fixed with an Enameloplasty (reshaping of the chipped area to smoothen it) or with a filling. Regardless, you should get it checked.

Best,

Your friendly dentist

Clove oil is part of some temporary filling materials that can cause a soothing effect on exposed pulp (nerve) of a tooth. But clove oil by itself can be very caustic and cause chemical burn of your gums. I would suggest seeing your closest dentist to know the cause of the pain and get it treated. I hope you feel better soon.

Gingivitis is a term used for inflamed gums. It can be caused due to a
variety of reasons. The most common being inadequate oral hygiene. Your
dentist will be able to diagnose gingivitis by observing any bleeding of
gums visible during a routine exam. Consult your dentist to know the cause
of gingivitis and they will be able to tell you appropriate measures you
will have to take to prevent it. I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
A waterpik is a very effective adjunct for oral hygiene. You can replace it
with regular floss if you think it gives you better results. Its like a
'whatever works for you' situation. As long as you use it regularly you
will start seeing results. Your dentist/hygienist will start noticing the
healthier gums.
Keep up the good work.
Best,
J Singh.
