A 27-year-old female asked:
If I were your doc..: If you have an infection in your gum due to a wisdom tooth. an antibiotic may be needed. It is important to remember that this will only temporarily control the swelling. The real treatment may be to treat the tooth or gum. You shouldn't think that the antibiotic is the treatment.
A 40-year-old male asked:
Salivary stone: What you are describing sounds like a salivary stone. These are calcifications the may occur in the salivary glands or ducts. They may cause blockage of the duct. Sometimes, these pass on their own. Other times, they nee to be treated by a dentist. You can try Sugar-free lemon drops to stimulate the saliva. It may help it push thde stone out of the blockage. If not, visit your dentist.
A member asked:
Please clarify: I need a little more specific question to help you. Do you want to know more about how to take care of your dental health at home? Do you have a question about a dental health problem? Let me know, I'd be happy to help with your question.
