    Unexplainable Mouth Pain

    I’ve been experiencing pain for about a month now in my upper right mouth area near the back. I went to the dentist and they couldn’t see any infection or cavities in that area so they thought my wisdom tooth could be causing the pain. Just to make sure it could be that i went to a different dentist to get a second opinion and once again they couldn’t find anything on my x rays so he thought it might be my wisdom tooth. So i ended up getting both wisdom teeth on my right side extracted and within....

    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.

    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?

    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....

    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....

    Jaw pain...wisdom tooth maybe???

    A few days ago i noticed i developed a canker sore right where my gums and cheek meet at the top of my mouth. A day or 2 later i noticed when i push on my gums (above where your wisdom tooth should be) it was hurting. Now its been 2 days and my jaw is in so much pain and i have minor swelling on my cheek. It mainly hurts on my top jaw and right where my top and bottom jaw meet. I cant feel a tooth poking through yet. However compared to the other side it definitely feels more tapered. I never have....
