  • The line on the surface of the tooth can be because of decay or it can be just a staining of the tooth. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to make proper diagnosis. Treatment in both the cases differs. If on clinical examination there is a catch point and it is a dacay then you have to get the filling done but if it is just a staining then getting the cleaning done will solve the problem. For your lower tooth where the gums are sore and bleeding, it may be gingivitis and for this along with brushing and flossing you can do warm saline rinses. If you have not visited dentist for regular visit which is 6 monthly for cleaning then you schdule it now.
