    Horrible Pain on my tongue

    So I recently had strep throat which I was treated for but on the last day of it I noticed my tongue was super sore and looked like a fungal infection on the back and sides of the tongue but in the middle was red and looked like small little groves almost like veins and they have a yellowish color and they are the source of the pain when talking eating and drinking. Doctor said skin may have fallen off and gave me prednisolone, and nystatin, and a numbing rinse. Any ideas what this may be? I doubt....

  • No blood clots or pain after wisdom teeth extraction?

    I had my top two wisdom teeth removed yesterday and I looked in my mouth to see how they were healing and noticed there were no blood clots on either side. I haven’t had very much pain and it’s been manageable with only a few ibuprofen. I also looked at pictures of dry socket so it doesn’t seem to be that. Am I okay?

    Cold Tooth After Cavity (for years)

    So around three years ago I got my first cavity in my twenties. My dentist was worried about as it was a DEEP cavity and thought I would need to get a root canal. I went to an endodontist days later after the tooth in question was still reacting to cold specifically, but he thought that the feeling may go away in a month. It hasn't. Here's where things get....complicated....I haven't told my dentist this...but after all these years? My tooth (that specific one that got the cavity) STILL....

    Pulsating “bump” below skin on Facial Artery on cheek about an inch from my mouth

    So I have noticed a bump below the skin for about a year now. It is soft to the touch and not discolored. I can only see it in certain lighting but recently within the past month I have noticed it is pulsing with my heartbeat. I have felt my facial artery and followed it from the mandible and it feels larger on my left than on my right. I have gone to the dermatologist and they said they had never seen anything like that before. I then went to an oral surgeon who suggested I go and get an angiogram....

    Invisible braces

    This wasn’t my first experience with braces since I had the traditional metal orthodontic braces when I was a teen. https://midental.ca/services/orthodontic-braces-orthopedics/ I wore it almost a year. My teeth were perfect after my initial treatment, but I wasn’t diligent about wearing my retainers every night. Eventually, I stopped wearing it altogether since it becomes too painful. I was foolish and I should have been more responsible. My teeth ended up shifting tremendously over the next decade....

    2 year nokars

    My daughter is 3 and her 2 year molars are FINALLy pushing through. I looked at her molars today and saw (what looked like to me) a tooth on top of a tooth at first glance- then upon further observation kind of looks like a cyst or abscess on he tooth. Probably going to take her to a walk-in weekend clinic tomorrow but figured I would see if anyone else has experienced this or knows what’s going on or what I am looking at. Thanks!
