A 21-year-old female asked:
Multiple Issues?: Sounds like you could potentially have multiple issues going on, but possibly a good sinus infection. Pregnant women can typically take Tylenol (acetaminophen) but not NSAID's (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen). Antibiotics that are in pregnancy category B are considered safe such as penicillin & amoxicillin. This assumes you have no allergies, but you need to see a doctor/dentist for a diagnosis.
A 31-year-old male asked:
No: Your dentist cannot give you gum recession. If your gum tissue was inflammed and swolen prior to your cleaning it may be possible that as the inflammation caused by the plaque and tartar goes down after having it cleaned off your teeth, it may seem like you have a small amount of recession, but that would not be a negative reflection on your dentist. That's why you have your teeth cleaned!
A 27-year-old female asked:
Most Likely: More than likely you would still be able to get braces even with those issues. There are quite a few variables and the wisdom teeth may need to be removed prior to orthodontic treatment, but don't let that scare you off. My best advice would be to call a local orthodontist and schedule a consultation appointment where they can give you more specific information based on your case.

Thanks for letting me know. I'm just worried because the teeth that were bracketed are so sensitive that they start to hurt even from a
Ok for more than 6 months now. We have been brushing her teeth twice a day without fail and yes we do it in a very meticulous manner.
