    Canker Sore or Oral Herpes?

    About a week or so ago, I got what I assumed to be a canker sore or mouth ulcer that appeared almost immeadiately after eating salty food, but looking at it now it doesn't look like a mere canker sore to me and I'm deeply concerned. It began as a small red bump in my mouth, but has transformed into three splotchy white spots, and if has caused me stinging pain during the whole duration of having it, though it hasn't increased nor decreased in pain since the visual changes. I have a close....

    White Stuff on Tongue

    Throughout the day my tongue gets this white stuff on it. I scrub it off every morning and night and it keeps coming back. This has been happening for a month now. I asked the dentist about it when I was getting my teeth cleaned and they gave me a tongue scraper and said nothing about it. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out why my tongue started turning white all of a sudden. The only pain I feel from it is when my mint toothpaste touches my tongue; it causes a burning sensation. I'm....

    Am I being reasonable in deciding to have an extraction instead of root canal?

    My dentist told me I need a root canal, since my wisdom tooth grew into one of my teeth. After being told this I did some research on root canals. Based on this information, I think it would be reasonable for me to opt for an extraction instead of a root canal. Using only American Endodontics Association, American Dental Association studies, and other pubmed studies, I learned the following: -Root canal teeth, even when done correctly, have higher endotoxin levels than teeth with vital pulps. The....
  • Issues With Tooth Extraction

    Got my tooth pulled on 4/1/17, a back molar. It was pulled due to a bad root canal causing lots of pain and slight swelling.

My mouth doesnt taste bad, but it is very dry with almost a blood like taste near the extraction, when i juat checked it in the mirror i can see like.... fabric....

    Tooth Troubles

    I have the worse luck with my teeth! The one up for discussion today however, had a root canal done about 15 years ago along with a crown. In the past week, my gum is so very tender and sore. Even when I smile big, I can feel pain at that tooth. Why am I now feeling pain with this tooth even though it had had a root canal done on it?

    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....

    Mouth Sores

    Hello everyone! I'm here with hopes that maybe someone might know what's going on with my lips. I have been having two small sores for a bit. They don't bother or hurt me at all unless I eat something spicy. I first noticed them when I went to eat at a Chinese buffet. I was eating a crawfish when all of the sudden I felt a burn in my inner lips. My lips began to feel numb and swollen. I found a mirror and those two little dots is what I found. I have eaten crawfish before and never had....
