    Aspirin and tooth decay reversal

    Today BBC came out with an article that says aspirin can reverse tooth decay. Is this true? What if you take Tylenol? What information does WebMD as an organization have about this topic? It would be really great news if this is true. I understand there are alot of hoaxes about tooth decay reversal. But the concept is soo interesting. Does anyone have any more info? Thx

    Dental crown fell out

    I wanted to enquire about a dental crown issue. I had a root canal treatment 10 months back since one of my teeth was in a pretty bad condition and was fitted with a ceramic crown on the tooth. Today the crown came out along with a bit of the cement that was holding the crown. The gutta-percha root that was installed after the treatment is still intact and I am not feeling any pain.

    Labor Day weekend, abscess tooth, what to do in the meantime?

Friday, it was more prominent but not painful or obstructive. I did notice a numbness in my upper lip, and it was a tad swollen.I went out and bought Sensodyne for my tooth pain, thinking that it was just sensitive....

    Wisdom Teeth removal

    Upon my Dentists recommendation, I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted at 60yrs. of age. I think she just didn't want to work on them that far back in my mouth. WORST decision ever. After surgery, had broken tooth. One year later, still have numb lips, speech impediment, chewing issues, and other side effects. Extremely annoying. DO NOT do it if you have a choice.
