    Why would you advise using Floride?

    It is a neurotoxin and has not a single study to prove it does anything to stop or fight cavities. Why it is in too many municipal water supplies is anyone’s guess.

    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....

    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....

    Gums issue

    I went in for dental surgery. They cut my gums and exposed the roots for cleaning. It all went very well, except on one side of my mouth. Right after the surgery, I was eating and the gum felt like it was pushed down during chewing. It has all healed now, but the gums are lower on that side and the roots are slightly exposed. Is this normal, or did I loose a stitch during chewing that caused this.

    TISSUE INSIDE MY LIPS AND TIP OF TONGUE IS INFLAMED

    I began noticing a general inflammation inside my mouth 8 weeks ago. It localized to the inside of my top and bottom lips and the front/tip of my tongue. No sores or other visible irregulatities, but you can see that the tissue is mildly pink. For the past two weeks the condition has caused my lips and tongue to taste "salty". If I'm drinking plain water it tastes salty on the front of my tongue. I went to my dentist who told me that he didn't see anything unusual. He prescribed....

    Injury/Wound under tongue.

    I was recently in a small fight and I had I had to bite my attackers fingers which were in my mouth. Since them i have a contusion stretching along the bottom of my mouth under what I think is the frenulum. I couldn’t eat the night it happened but it’s been about 2 days and it is feeling better, but i’m afraid it might be infected or not healing well. It’s almost like a slice into the base of my tongue. My throat is also becoming sore, although i don’t know if it is related. I have pictures if needed....

    Gum Pain and Jaw Soreness

    I don't remember what day this started happening. It was either on Friday before my doctor's appointment or afterwards. I'm not sure. I also got a tetanus shot on the same day I had my appointment. Anyways, since then, the gums on the upper right side of my mouth hurt where I had my wisdom teeth out almost 5 years ago and my jaw on the right side feels a little swollen. It doesn't look swollen, but I feel something and it hurts a little bit. I just don't know if I should go to....
