    Root canal or just filling?

    Hey everyone The major tooth problem is tooth decay. It has been 3 months I am suffering from tooth ache. I was handling it with clove oil. Last day when I checked it with my mirror I found a big hole. But till the day no food was entering the hall and irritating me. From yesterday onwards I am suffering from severe toothache too. When I told this to my friend, she told about tooth colored filling in Toronto ( https://www.treehousedentalcare.ca/site/early-treatment-children/fillings )that can help....

    Traditional braces at early age

    Hi, My child is in fifth grade. From childhood onwards, she was upset because of the shape of her teeth. All her teeth were misplaced. All her friends in school call her devil face because of those teeth. So my friend suggested me to take her to general dentistry in Brampton( https://www.lakeridgedental.ca/ ).

    Salty Mouth

    For months now, I've had a terrible "salty" mouth. Feels like a salt shaker pored direct on my tongue. My saliva is always salty. Food doesn't taste like anything but salt. I do have gingivitis and was going to dentist regularly until he quit taking my insurance. So I've just not gotten around to finding a dentist in last 6 mos. Does anyone experience this weird "salty" taste in mouth 24-7?

    Pain in the gum, localised - should I get worried?

    When I saw the dentist a month ago for a checkup, this wasn't an issue and my dentist didn't pick up any issues here...he did elsewhere (resulting in a drill and fill). A few days ago I woke up to find the gum in the middle of the front teeth on my lower jaw to have swollen up, like it does when food gets caught in the teeth. Thinking it was that, I flossed and no food particles or anything came out. I've been using a saltwater gargle for 2 days and the swelling goes down slightly then....
  • 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?

    Teeth have seriously deteriorated.

    Hi, I am suffering from chronic Pancreatitis. As a side effect of this disease, all my teeth have seriously deteriorated. Seven of my teeth is severely infected. I have been using medicated mouthwash to reduce the infection. From last day onwards, it's paining very badly. So I used Benzocaine, which can reduce the pain. But I didn't find any difference. I am not able to sleep or eat because of this pain. I tried Advil, aspirin, cold packs etc but it didn't help. My face and neck were....

    Mouth/gum pain moves daily

    In the past few days I have noticed a throb in my gum line. It started behind my left front tooth, where I had recently had a filling done, I thought it was just some sensitivity from that, but then I noticed a throb in my lower front gum area, and today it's my entire upper portion of my left jaw. The only relief I get is when I put an ice cube in between my teeth and lightly bite and hold it where the throb is. Theres no swelling or any visual sign that anything is wrong inside my mouth. Just....

    Bleeding gums

    My gums bleed when I brush my teeth. This is fairly normal for me, as I have gingivitis. What concerns me is that lately, the blood that comes out is closer to a brown color than just regular red. This only started happening maybe a week ago. Should I be concerned about the odd coloration?
