    Multiple canker sores

    Started about a week ago with a blister like sore in my cheek that healed quickly after it “popped”. Now I have two more, one on the roof of my mouth near the uvula and the other on the inside of bottom lip. I’ve struggled with canker sores for as long as I can remember, usually from trauma like bitting my cheek or eating an excess of citrus but I have done neither of those things. Looking for relief and possible preventative measures. TIA

    Dental health related

    I was wondering if you didn't brush your teeth for a couple of years could the teeth and health of people who have used eating utensils with you during this time affect them? I would really appreciate your expertise and answer very much.

    My dad has 2 spots on his bottom lip that have been there since being out in the cold in March of 2016.

He has no health insurance and has been seeing a free clinic recently, as it just won't heal up. However, they are not helping him. He was told they are 2 types of bacterial infections, but antibiotics have not helped. He was given shots and pills, 4 difference types of....

    Black & Sore Tongue

    I woke up this morning and my tongue was black, and sore. Never had this happen before.

It’s been about ten hours later and it looks a little better but still hurts. I brush my teeth two, every now and then one times a day, I don’t have bad breath, but I do smoke. Could it just be from the pepto, even though....

    Sudden excessive salivation?

    I occasionally experience sudden, unexpected episodes of excess salivation, each of which lasts about five minutes and is accompanied by nausea, sweating, tingling in the cheeks and lymph node areas, and occasionally chills. I swallow or spit the excess saliva every ten or so seconds, each of which I would say amounts to about a teaspoon's worth. After the episode I feel fine, albeit a little sweaty and uneasy. I wouldn't say I feel dehydrated afterward, but I hydrate well every day. I have....
