    Pain in jaw and temple after gum surgery

    A part of my gums near the backmost part of my mouth were removed to allow a wisdom tooth to grow. It's been almost a week now, and ever since the surgery I have been experiencing a stabbing pain in the upper jaw and right temple, that worsens and throbs painfully whenever I swallow or move my mouth. Is this normal? I haven't been eating, it hurts too much.

    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.

    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?

    Aspirin and tooth decay reversal

    Today BBC came out with an article that says aspirin can reverse tooth decay. Is this true? What if you take Tylenol? What information does WebMD as an organization have about this topic? It would be really great news if this is true. I understand there are alot of hoaxes about tooth decay reversal. But the concept is soo interesting. Does anyone have any more info? Thx

    Dental crown fell out

    I wanted to enquire about a dental crown issue. I had a root canal treatment 10 months back since one of my teeth was in a pretty bad condition and was fitted with a ceramic crown on the tooth. Today the crown came out along with a bit of the cement that was holding the crown. The gutta-percha root that was installed after the treatment is still intact and I am not feeling any pain. But the cavity that was created by removing the decayed part of the tooth is now wide open. I wanted to know about....

    Labor Day weekend, abscess tooth, what to do in the meantime?

    It started on Thursday, when I took a nap and woke up with a mild, general tooth pain in a lateral incisor, and had slightly affected my central incisor. I thought I had been grinding my teeth in my sleep, as I often do, so I swished around warm salt water, took a Tylenol, and called it a day. Friday, it was more prominent but not painful or obstructive. I did notice a numbness in my upper lip, and it was a tad swollen.I went out and bought Sensodyne for my tooth pain, thinking that it was just sensitive....

    Wisdom Teeth removal

    Upon my Dentists recommendation, I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted at 60yrs. of age. I think she just didn't want to work on them that far back in my mouth. WORST decision ever. After surgery, had broken tooth. One year later, still have numb lips, speech impediment, chewing issues, and other side effects. Extremely annoying. DO NOT do it if you have a choice.
