Toothy Smile

Our Treatments



Don't let common tooth ailments be a real pain. Here's how you can effectively combat the problem.

You are never fully dressed until you wear a smile, goes a saying. A toothy smile needs a radiant crown of teeth and congenial oral health. Amongst the various illnesses of the teeth, which can disturb the harmony, are receding gums, caries of the teeth and infection at the root of the teeth and gums.

The teeth are embedded in the sockets in the firm layer of gums surrounding them. The margins of gums are always vulnerable as the bacteria, which consist of the oral flora, find the sugar rich foods good for their growth and the multiplication of these eats away at the margins. This form into sockets and lead to loosening of the teeth and thereby the infection spreading to the roots and the surrounding teeth too.

Carbo veg is one of the prime remedies that can help prevent the infection apart from Merc sol. If already there is any pus formation, Hepar sulph and Silicea help. Kreosote mother tincture and Calendula in a few drops mixed in water and used as mouth wash help in warding off any bacterial infections and prevent further damage. Another problem is the caries of the teeth, which are also quite common thanks to the refined foods we eat. There is erosion at the structure of teeth forming fine pockets into which the food particles get embedded forming a source of infection. This gradually increases in area and could reach the roots too. For an early decay of teeth with rapid caries associated with spongy and bleeding gums with foul odour at the mouth, Kreosote and Flour ac. are helpful. If the crown of the teeth become black and gives in with caries at the edges, Staphysagria is the prime remedy. If the decay tends to spread along the structure into the roots with decay at gums, Thuja is helpful.

Associated with all this is the symptom of toothache. If the pain gets worse on slightest exposure to eating cold foods, Aconite and Coffea relieve. If ingestion of hot food worsens, Belladonna helps. Children who tend to have caries of teeth are helped by Antim crud.

The prime remedy usually which relieves the pain in children and usually worse at night is Chamomilla when it drives the children to whining and irritability. When the wisdom teeth cut in and give pain, Mag carb is helpful. But a few drops of Plantago mother tincture applied over the painful area of the teeth relieves pain immediately. For a good number of dental ailments, homoeopathy has a safe remedy.
