    Wisdom teeth removal

    Hi, I am a homemaker. From last few days, I am suffering from tooth pain. When I just felt it using my tongue, I found that it is my wisdom teeth erupting. I thought that pain will be reducing.But the pain is not reducing. I found that the wisdom teeth do not have sufficient space to erupt. This is now causing pain to other teeth. It seems that it is damaging the other teeth. My husband suggested...

    Sudden onset of multiple sensitive teeth!

    Within the past week, about 5/6 of the teeth that comprise the right side of my mouth (both on the top row and the bottom row) have suddenly become sensitive. It started with just one tooth - a tooth that I've known to become sensitive every now and then - but I'm seems to have 'spread' to other teeth (that's what it feels like, anyway). I've never had a toothache before, but from hearing about...

    Yellow teeth

    I wouldn't say my teeth are entirely yellow but anyone know a simple home remedy I can use to help whiten them.  I'm a person who ABSOLUTELY LOVES TO SMILE but I'm insecure about my teeth and tend to always hide them when I smile and laugh. I've tried a couple methods like the strawberry one and also the lemon+baking Soda one however it doesn't seem to suit my comfortability and work. Any really...

    Severe Toothache

    I had an appointment today with an emergency dentist in Whitby and he confirmed that my root canal tooth is in fact infected. The pain in my jaw is so severe that I can't describe it. The dentist which I got to see said that my tooth had most likely abscessed and I could either have it removed or have a root canal treatment. Has anyone been through this? What does this sound like to you? Should I...

Now I'm staying with her due to my...

    Dental phobic 8 year old

    My daughter is 8 years old. Her incisors are decayed. They look dull and dark than her other teeth. She has a rational fear in visiting dental clinics. The whole thing scares her. Every visit to the dentist makes her panic and full of dread. She can't even think about entering a dental office. Her teeth are in a bad state now. I’ve tried to convince her as I can to visit the dentist. She is...

    Take good care of your teeth!!

    Prevention is always better than cure, right? It is better to prevent dental problems rather than taking treatment after a problem arise. When I was small, I never cared my teeth. My mother always used to tell me to floss and brush twice a day. But I didn’t listen to her. My mother is not with me anymore. She left us one year before. I spent each and every day of my life regretting the things...

    Metal braces..It is killing me!!

    Hi! I put braces when I was 21. From there, started my problems. I had severe pain then. I had discomfort in speaking. My teeth was highly disordered and that was why I put braces and that too metal braces. It has been one year since I put this metal thing on my teeth and it was like I had to say goodbye to all my favourite foods. Yesterday night there was a function at my home and I ate meat....

    Hello , new to group

    I was a Daily Strength Member years ago and just Googled my way back in today. Perhaps this isn't the right place for me as I have already lost my teeth in my 50's . I have dentures and a few issues with them. I seldom wear them at home. The bottoms always come loose when I eat and I cant open my mouth very wide with them in. I'm also assuming it hasn't helped the potential in my already sexless...
  • I'm pretty sure I have Periodontal disease since my gums have receded greatly and I've lost 2 of my teeth on the bottom in the middle. I've been researching different things I can do to keep from getting abscesses and sores in my mouth besides going to the dentist. (I don't have insurance or income to pay for it) and I've come across a few articles that say its ok to swish around some peroxide...
