“I found your blog on the internet, and as your website seemed very impressive, I am turning to you in utmost confidence.My problem is that my top right molar has a hole in it...and not a small one either. Indeed, I dare not chew food on that side of my face, as it can hurt a lot when it comes into contact with food. To top all of this off, the gums on my front teeth are swollen and bleed when I brush my teeth. I am mortally afraid of going to the dentist, I don’t know how to take care of these problems. Please help me"
Thank you for your trust, and thank you for bringing these issues to my attention. Go and book an appointment with your dentist immediately, if you don’t have one, find one as soon as possible, hopefully one that you can trust and whom you do not mind trusting yourself to.
I know that this is not as easy for some as it is for others, but maybe you need to look around and talk to more than one doctor, to get a feel for which one you like. If you have found the dentist that you feel comfortable with, this situation will be remedied quickly and with ease.
The tooth with the big hole in it will be looked at thoroughly, may even be x-rayed, and fi it is still alive, they will fill it, if it has died,a root canal treatment is most likely in order. This will take more than one visit to the dentist, and will leave the tooth with a filling, or if the tooth structure has become too weak, with a crown.
The problem you have with your gums will be easier to clear up, but I cannot say for certain without seeing the gums first. I cannot say for certain what the problem is, but a deep cleansing and removal of all tartar and plaque usually does the trick.
I urge you to start dental treatment as soon as possible (after you have found someone you are comfortable with), it is a bad idea to let the issue sit. The rot will set in deeper and deeper, affecting more and more of your soft tissues and ultimately your jawbone, and you can experience greater pain and more severe problems the longer you wait.
