    Are there any benefits to using mouthwash. Does it do more than freshen your breath? Is Listerine the best to use. What is the best to use? Should I continue using mouthwash
  • 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. 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!

    White spots on tonsils for almost 2 months

    Hi I’ve been having white spots on my tonsils for about almost 2 months and they have not gone away I was cleaning them for a while but the spots would come back. I haven’t been having any symptoms like fever or throat pain I just feel discomfort every time I swallow. I have been with a stuffy nose and my stool has been coming out looking more watered down but it’s not diarrhea. I was on amoxicillin for a month that didn’t help at all I don’t know what it could be. I believe it might be that i have....

    Need suggestions!

    During my journey from Toronto to Oakville, I met with a car accident. By God's grace, I was safe. And it was not a serious one. But my jaw bone was damaged resulting in an excessive bone loss. I was unconscious for a day. The next day I woke up and noticed that 3 of my front teeth were removed. Now I am in constant pain and can no longer open my mouth more than half an inch. One of my friends suggested undergoing dental procedures. Since I am now in Oakville, I am in search of a dental clinic....
