• Poll: does getting braces hurt ?

    Best answer: Not when you get the boxes. It hurts when they put the wires in and mostly when they tighten them. It lasts a day or two but it's worth it.

He told me the same month that my insurance was gunna be up & done. I have a feeling that it's because they just want to take my money could it be?

  • I need my wisdom teeth removed how much?

    I have been told I need to remove my wisdom teeth but for years they've looked the same and have NEVER bothered me but now my dentist is saying I need them removed. I do plan to remove the bottom 2. How much will it cost to remove 2 of them since my insurance denied it. I'm 19 btw.

    Do my tonsils look normal? What are those holes?

    Best answer: holes in the tonsils are part of normal anatomy. If something were wrong with them you'd like infection, you'd see white(usually filled with pus) or red spots to indicate tonsilitis, strep/sore throat & expericence painful swallowing.

  • Is it ok to sometimes not brush teeth in the morning?

    Best answer: It's recommended to brush your teeth twice a day. While you slept, bacteria proliferated in your mouth and it needs to be removed in the morning to reduce your risk of tooth decay.

    I had a root canal about 5 - 6 years ago. It started hurting Wednesday, the 3rd, but not enough to make me worry about it. Saturday, the 6th the pain became so sever i couldn't take it! Today, Monday the 15th i walked into the dentist office without an appointment and explained my problem and they got me in right away! Ive been prescribed 600mg of Ibuprofen to take every 6-8 hours and an antibiotic called clindamycin to take 3 times a day. The ibuprofen helps a lot but my question is will the antibiotic eventually take the pain away as well? I have an consultation set up for Friday, the 19th, to see what we are going to do, Pull the Tooth or re-do the Root Canal.

  • Is it good to spray detol on your teeth?

    Best answer: Dettol has three main compounds: chloroxylenol, pine oil and castor oil. Pine oil and castor oil are not considered toxic. But chloroxylenol is poisonous and should not be ingested. While not considered that toxic to humans (unless swallowed), chloroxylenol does kill fish.

  • What are the bumps on the roof of my mouth?

    I always get one little bump on the roof of my mouth every now and then. It goes away in a day or two and sometimes I can even pop them. I was just wondering if anyone knows what these are?
