    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....

    How do I know if my Dentist is qualified

    I'm nervous about going to my Dentist as it is. My question is my dentist wants to remove two badly broken teeth to the point where there is not much there. Do I need to see a oral surgeon or is a basic DDS Periodontics Dentist qualified? Thank you for your input

    Little White Bumps Inside my Mouth

    I've had braces for a year now. I went for an ortho check-up last week & the next day I got little white bumps on my mouth. The doctor didn't do much to my braces. He looked around my mouth & the dental assistant replaced a couple of tie backs. At the beginning it was only a few white spots & I thought it was maybe because my teeth moved. But there was barely any movement. Nonetheless, I've been putting dental wax everyday on the braces that rubs against the white bumps just....

    smoked a cigarette after deep cleaning

    Hi, I got a deep cleaning today and received fluoride varnish. I normally don't smoke, but a few hours after the fluoride treatment, I got coffee and smoked a cigarette with a friend without thinking. Ugh. I didn't eat or drink anything for the first few hours but am wondering if I just completely ruined the fluoride varnish treatment. Thanks

    Confused??

    Ok so I watch multiple family bloggers on YouTube. And all of them have kids my age (12-14) and all the kids my age have braces. All of them have perfect teeth. The look better then my moms teeth and when she was in high school she had a spacer , retainer, braces, and some other stuff. My teeth are more crooked and crowded then the bloggers so why are they getting the pain from braces if they have perfect teeth????

    Dry Sockets

    Hi! I got 4 impacted wisdom teeth extracted last tuesday, and found out on Friday that I had dry sockets in both of my lower teeth. The pain has been pretty bad, and one dentist said the dry sockets were very deep and the other said they were "raging". On friday the dentist dressed them, and the pain was lessened overnight but the next morning it was back and pretty bad. On Saturday I went back and they put what she called putty on the dry sockets instead. The pain has been on and off since....

    Antibiotics prior to dental work

    I had a hip replacement in 2008. My local dentist insists I take an antibiotic prior to any dental work because of the artificial hip. I have had to see an out of town dentist twice for emergency work while on vacation. They told me the requirements have changed and I no longer need to take the antibiotic prior to dental work. Which is valid under the latest guidelines?

    Teeth discoloration after root canal treatment!!!

    I have undergone a root canal treatment for my front teeth a few months ago. Now I have noticed that my teeth have turned yellowish. I have tried many home remedies to whiten my teeth. But nothing worked. My teeth are still yellow. I feel embarrassed to smile. My friends make fun of me. I don't know whether it is possible to regain the natural color of my teeth. After root canal treatment, my teeth are sensitive to hot and cold drinks. I have intense pain while chewing. I used to take painkillers....
