  • Tooth coming through gum?

    I'm 17 so I don't know how long it's been there but I just notice a really small tooth kind of I didnt think it was a tooth at first until I was properly feeling it. It's at the top back of the gums. It's not painful and I can't feel it but what is it? And is it something that needs to be sorted ?

  • I've never been to a dentist but now I think I need my wisdom teeth out?

    I'm 19 and my mom just never really took me to the dentist as a child. Anytime I ever asked she just said she couldn't find one that accepted her insurance. For well over a year now Ive started having pain on both sides of the top of my mouth where my wisdom teeth are and I told my mom about this and she said she would look into it. But it has been over a year and it is very painful and one is starting to come in. I don't know how insurance works but I'm at the point where I want to literally just walk into a dentist office and not care how much it will cost me because it hurts so much. I use to have my insurance card but my mom switched insurance so I don't have my new one yet and I don't even know which insurance I have. My mom keeps saying she will take care of it when I ask her about our health insurance and express wanting to see a dentist and even saying I'll find a dentist and make the appointment myself. I have no idea why she doesn't want me to see a dentist but its frustrating. I don't know how insurance works but I just want to see a dentist.

  • How do i fix my white tongue?

    Best answer: well that's not a good sign. It means your oral hygiene is not that well.

    You should use a tongue scraper twice a day. once in the morning when you brush and once in the evening when you brush before bed.
    Don't use normal mouthwash.. but use ORIGINAL listerine.. it works.

    if your tongue is still white then you may need to see your doctor. It could be from some other health issue.

    Good luck.

  • Did your wisdom teeth ever come in? Did it hurt?

    My doc said mine will most likely never come in because of how far down there were, but now I can see/feel them coming in the back, but it doesn't hurt at all

  • Teeth extractions😭?

    Best answer: The pain of the first injection, not gonna lie is uncomfortable. Are you having teeth on the top and bottom removed? If you are than your main worry is a world full of numb afterwards. After the first injection on the top and bottom each, you don’t even feel the rest, maybe pressure, but it won’t hurt. I had to get 3 teeth pulled when I was 13. I had to get bonding on my front 2 teeth, the gave me 6 shots on the top alone for that... Getting shots on the bottom is more weird because of the way your nerves are, one shot on the bottom, mainly in the back can make most of your bottom face go numb. The top is easy, one shot where the tooth is and it numbs that part. I’m 18, so similar in age to you, and I hate it too. Just wondering, why do you need 4 teeth pulled anyway?

  • Scared to be put under for Wisdom Teeth Removal?

    To keep this short and sweet, I have to get four wisdom teeth removed, two are completely impacted and two are partially impacted. The doctor told me he recommends me to be put under for surgery but I've never been put under and I'm scared if it will hurt or if I won't wake up or anything so I told him I was scared and he offered for me to be awake and he would just use general stuff and laughing gas but everyone who I ask their opinion if I should do it awake they act like I'm a lunatic and say how horrible the cracking noises are. Is it really that bad? I've been taking 800 MG of motrins twice a day every day for like 5 weeks just to push it off because I don't know what to do... Is being awake really horrible? Is being put to sleep painful, what if something goes wrong when they put me under? I'm scared, please help.
