A 31-year-old member asked:
Nutrition & hygiene: A balanced nutrition with foods that is good for your body will be good for teeth and gum too. Avoid acidic drinks (soda, sports drinks) and sweets. If you do like these food, rinse or brush your teeth right after. All decay or gum infection are caused by microbials (bacteria). Keep your teeth cleaning by brush and flossing and see a dentist regularly for prevention is the key.
A 48-year-old member asked:
Are they related?: Is the hard painless lump related to a sore throat? You could have a hard painless lump on the roof of your mouth which is completely normal. It might be there for many years and you did not notice it. It is called tori. Check with a dentist about the lump and check with a physician for sore throat. If these two conditions are related, your physician should tell.
