    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....
  • No blood clots or pain after wisdom teeth extraction?

    I had my top two wisdom teeth removed yesterday and I looked in my mouth to see how they were healing and noticed there were no blood clots on either side. I haven’t had very much pain and it’s been manageable with only a few ibuprofen. I also looked at pictures of dry socket so it doesn’t seem to be that. Am I okay?

    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....

    Cold Tooth After Cavity (for years)

    So around three years ago I got my first cavity in my twenties. My dentist was worried about as it was a DEEP cavity and thought I would need to get a root canal. I went to an endodontist days later after the tooth in question was still reacting to cold specifically, but he thought that the feeling may go away in a month. It hasn't. Here's where things get....complicated....I haven't told my dentist this...but after all these years? My tooth (that specific one that got the cavity) STILL....

    Invisible braces

    This wasn’t my first experience with braces since I had the traditional metal orthodontic braces when I was a teen. https://midental.ca/services/orthodontic-braces-orthopedics/ I wore it almost a year. My teeth were perfect after my initial treatment, but I wasn’t diligent about wearing my retainers every night. Eventually, I stopped wearing it altogether since it becomes too painful. I was foolish and I should have been more responsible. My teeth ended up shifting tremendously over the next decade....

    2 year nokars

    My daughter is 3 and her 2 year molars are FINALLy pushing through. I looked at her molars today and saw (what looked like to me) a tooth on top of a tooth at first glance- then upon further observation kind of looks like a cyst or abscess on he tooth. Probably going to take her to a walk-in weekend clinic tomorrow but figured I would see if anyone else has experienced this or knows what’s going on or what I am looking at. Thanks!

    Narrow Eye Teeth

    I got my braces off and my ortho told me I had narrow Eye teeth and needed to have them "filled" up to be normal sizes. I had them filled and they look horrible. Those two teeth are all I see because one is still small and the other is the size of a tooth and half. Could a crown fix my problem and the size to make them look more nature?

    Oral skin graph

    I am 33 and I had a skin graph done in front of my front teeth on the bottom when I was 14. I have recently noticed it is starting to come off some. It doesn't hurt but I'm concerned that is it comes all the way off I might lose a few teeth. That was the reasoning for getting the graph in the first place. My question is what would cause this?
