    Slight Pain in Betwen Premolars

    Hi All, In between my upper right first and second premolars, I get a sharp pain whenever I move my head too fast. Examples I've noticed are shaking my head, jumping down from ledges, and taps on the head on the other side of my face. Googling around gave me nothing. For context, I took an elbow to the face a few days ago, but that was to the left side of my face, and the pain is on the right side. I have not been using toothpaste while brushing my teeth the past few days, and recently started....

    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. But the cavity that was created by removing the decayed part of the tooth is now wide open. I wanted to know about....

    Jaw pain...wisdom tooth maybe???

    A few days ago i noticed i developed a canker sore right where my gums and cheek meet at the top of my mouth.

It mainly hurts on my top jaw and right where my top and bottom jaw meet. I cant feel a tooth poking through yet. However compared to the other side it definitely feels more tapered. I never have....

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

    It started on Thursday, when I took a nap and woke up with a mild, general tooth pain in a lateral incisor, and had slightly affected my central incisor. I thought I had been grinding my teeth in my sleep, as I often do, so I swished around warm salt water, took a Tylenol, and called it a day. 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....

    Pain: Near Bottom Right Molar

    Hi All, About one week ago I woke up one morning with a throbbing pain near my right molars. It felt swollen, and I couldn't close my mouth. We went to the local dentist, who just filed down my upper molar, and said the pain was caused by me biting my cheek. I don't remember biting my cheek, however he said I may have done so in my sleep. For the next three or four days, it got better, to the point where I could close my mouth again. However, I still had pain when applying pressure to my....

    Can a Dental abscess be pushed to the roof of the mouth by force?

    Okay so I have been dealing with a very very painful abscess and tooth (Top left next to fully a grown wisdom tooth that also has issues) since Saturday morning And the tooth that is infected is also taller then my other teeth due to my last dentist not testing the bite properly. I have been put on Amoxicillin, Ibuprofen and Tylenol 3. Last night I felt like the pain was finally feeling a bit better till I ended up accidentally biting down extremely hard on the infected tooth while eating. Shortly....
