  • Pain after root canal while chewing? ?

    I had my first root canal 2 weeks ago. Dentist said you can chew with with it after 2 days and I started to chew with that tooth after 5 days and I'm still having pain while chewing. Usually I don't feel any pain only when I'm chewing with this. What's the cause of it. I'm going to dentist tomorrow. But does it happen to any of you guys?

  • What is wrong with my tooth?

    I was at the dentist about 2 weeks ago. They didn’t tell me I had a cavity or anything. It was my first time with this dentist though and his hands were shaky and he kept cutting my gums. A few days ago I noticed it would hurt when I ate since my gums felt sore around one tooth. I didn’t even bother looking at it until today since I wanted to see why it was hurting and my tooth was all brown around at the bottom and my gums felt sore. It is very concerning looking and the gum looks like it is sorta higher up than it normally is.

  • Should I go to the dentist?

    I have one tooth that hurts when I push my tongue against it. It really only bothers me when I'm eating. I've had this problem before but I just had to brush more often and then it was fine.

  • Home made tooth filling substance?

     A very large back tooth filling  just fell out and my dentist cant see me until more than a week. Any home made substances I can put in there to stop the tooth self destructing..... as there's only some very thin walls of the tooth left... fortunately the nerve was removed so at least it doesn't hurt.

  • How do you come to have no teeth at all by age 50?

    Okay, okay how does one come to have no teeth, just bare gums by age 50?  The possibilities I've thought of are these:

    (1) A guy that never, ever brushes his teeth his whole life.

    (2) Maybe the guy has a congenital gum disease like the male pattern baldness of teeth.

    (3) or he gets some kind of drastic infection at some point in his life...

      Most of the guys I've seen who have no teeth or maybe just three, are homeless, or are in and out of prison.  Either way, I've guessed that fistfights took care of the ones in the front, and taffy and sodapop took care of the ones in the back.  I can see that hard drinkers would habitually pass out every night before they could brush their teeth... I've kind of wondered what the deal is with Popeye.
