• Can flossing your teeth two hours after an amalgam filling make the filling shift and screw up the filling?

    I got an amalgam filling today and 2 hours later I flossed those teeth that had the filling and there after was a wedged filling in between the two teeth that got the fillings along the edges. It went away but I am wondering if I screwed up the amalgam fillings.

  • Is it true I can't have a sip of water before wisdom teeth removal 8 hours before?

    Best answer: Yes. Keep your mouth shut when you shower. The anaesthetic can cause relaxation of your muscles and any food or fluid you've imbibed can seep out of your stomach and enter your lungs, causing choking or later, pneumonia.

  • Can I eat Ice cream with Braces on?

    The dentist gave me a paper listing some tips and foods to avoid to keep my teeth and braces healthy. It mentions not to eat Icy Foods because cold foods will cause the cement under my appliance to crumble and band or bracket to loosen. Presumably Ice Cream falls under this "Icy Foods" category right?... show more

Presumably Ice Cream falls under this "Icy Foods" category right? However, websites online say that Ice cream is the perfect foods to eat when you have braces. Ice cream should be fine as long as I put it in my mouth and let melt rather than rubbing it on my braces right?

    I recently had a tooth extraction and have been in a lot of pain. I got two lower teeth extracted and it has almost been a week already, but my gums still sting when coming into contact with anything. It hurts when I drink water, eat food, or even puff up my mouth. It is only on one part of my gums, the rest seem to be in no pain at all. I have also noticed something that looked like a frenumat that spot, but it hasn’t bothered me before this. I am not sure if I should wait and see if it gets better naturally, or go see a dentist about this.

  • Wonder Why can we grow nails back if they aren’t important?

    I mean you lose a nail and it grows back but if you lose a tooth which is way more important then it’s gone forever. Why is that? Aren’t teeth a lot more important than a nail?

  • Why do we get canker sores?

    I'm talking about those open, yellow ulcers u can on the walls of your mouth and sometimes on the lips. I've got a big, angry yellow one on my lower lip at the moment and it's as painful as hell. Why do we get them, I heard somewhere that it can be from an underlying virus that we carry.

    Best answer: I would suggest going with what your dentist recommends. Dentists recommend toothbrushes according to your mouth shape and health of your teeth. Using a medium or hard-bristled toothbrush can damage your gums and teeth. It can wear down your teeth. Softer bristles are more effective getting into spaces between the teeth and does not cause as much damage to your teeth and gums. Exposing your gums can make you more prone to getting infections and wearing down your teeth can make them more sensitive.
