    Whats wrong with my mouth?

    I noticed when looking at other people's side view that the space in between their top lip and nose are either straight or curved in. But mine curves out and my top lip looks protruded. Why is this? And what can be done?

    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.

    Possible halitosis causes

    Hello, I’ve been having some bad breath over the past month. It usually gets a little worse when I do not eat but nothing significant, also it doesn’t go away easily with a Listerine for example. What I could notice is that there are some red spots on my tongue and my tonsils don’t appear to have any exposed calculus but they have some saliences( did the best I could with the images). Does someone have an opinion about the case? Thank you

    Is it okay putting on braces in one jaw only?

    Hello doctor. So, I have a friend who uses the braces on the upper jaw only, it is because the teeth on her upper jaw are overlap (messy) while her lower jaw has no problem. And then I have read an article a while back that said putting on braces in one jaw only isn't good for both jaw arches. Is it true? and why did it happen?

    Post filling dental pain and swelling

    Had 3 teeth filled 2 days ago and I’m in severe pain. I went to dentist this morning and he gave me pain meds. They didn’t relieve my pain at all. I called back a few hours later to see if I could get an antibiotic. He prescribed one but I’m in excruciating pain now and it’s starting to go into my upper teeth and gums. He lost a bit during the procedure and couldn’t find it. He used a different bit after he started again. Could it be under my filling, or broke off under my filling?

    Cold sore or angular chelitis

    How do I know if I have a cold sore or angular chelitis? I have a sore in the corner of my mouth but it's not bubbly like a cold sore usually is, I have gotten a cold sore before. I know tingling is usually a sign of a cold sore and I did feel some tingling but this just feels different. Can some one help? I tried posting a picture but it said the picture is too big so I don't know how to do it.

    Slight Pain in Betwen Premolars

    Hi All, In between my upper right first and second premolars, I get a sharp pain whenever I move my head too fast. Examples I've noticed are shaking my head, jumping down from ledges, and taps on the head on the other side of my face. Googling around gave me nothing. For context, I took an elbow to the face a few days ago, but that was to the left side of my face, and the pain is on the right side. I have not been using toothpaste while brushing my teeth the past few days, and recently started....
