    Dentures

    I need to get new full set upper and lower dentures what is the rating or feed back on what Russell Klein offers in his ultra thing dentures? I have a very bad gag reflex (so bad that I have had to have surgery for.) and don't really have the money for implants. From what I have seen and read these are the closest to flexible as you can get at this time. If you could give me any feed back I would be appreciated.

    Periodic left upper lip numbness

    About once a month for the past about 3 months, I have experienced sudden numbness inside my upper lip far enough up it’s by the nostril but inside. It lasts about 15 minutes each time but is quite noticeable because it feels like when you go to the dentist and they use numbing for something. Can’t quite find anything online, possibly partially because there’s no good word to describe this area of the body that I’ve found. Thanks!

    Swelling near my tooth

    Hey I was having swelling near my tooth for last two weeks. I tried using clove oil. But the pain was not reducing. Now the swelling have spread to other areas of the face and neck. When I spoke with my friend she told me that it will because my damaged pulp. She told me that when pulp is damaged, it breaks down, and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other dying pulp remnants can cause an infection or abscessed tooth. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms....

    Dental

    I am terrified of going to the dentist but I know I have to. I’ve waited too long and now my teeth’s are crack and I don’t have any left. I know it will be expensive but does anyone know what can be done? I don’t have dental insurance and I am on a fix income. Help I don’t have chewing teeth’s left. I probably need dentures. Any answers would be a great help.

    How do I know if my Dentist is qualified

    I'm nervous about going to my Dentist as it is. My question is my dentist wants to remove two badly broken teeth to the point where there is not much there. Do I need to see a oral surgeon or is a basic DDS Periodontics Dentist qualified? Thank you for your input

    Hi , My daughter is 7 years 6 months old. She has started having pubic and armpit hair. Her doctor asked us to do a Bone Age test , which is what we did. After the test her bone age came to be about 10 years . Her doctor has now referred us to an Endocrine specialist so that they can take a better look. That said, my daughter's doctor also confirmed that the primary indicator of puberty among girls is breast enlargement and asked us not to worry. Can someone please confirm if this is normal scenario....

    Wisdom tooth removal

    Hi, last week onwards, my gums are inflamed. It is very painful. I was not able to brush properly. If I brush hardly, it will bleed. Even while flossing the gums bleed. The gums have been more sensitive too. One of my friends suggested me to try warm and cold compresses. I tried that too but I didn’t get any good result for that. When I saw my family doctor, he told me that if the inflammation exists for more than a week, I should consult the dentist. After three days, I found that a tooth was erupting....

    Why would you advise using Floride?

    It is a neurotoxin and has not a single study to prove it does anything to stop or fight cavities. Why it is in too many municipal water supplies is anyone’s guess.
