Agree : Agree with the need for a quick dental assessment. A simple crack may expose the underlying softer tooth material called dentin. This is leads to sensitivity to biting and temperature changes. Another cause for symptoms is that the tooth may be fractured, if so it will require immediate treatment before it leads to greater pain and / or an infection. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Two months ago, i went to a dentist for a big cavity that I have on the bottom left side. Tonight, my tooth cracked in half. Does it mean that my tooth is abcessed now? I have no money and no help. I am stressed. What should I do?
not necessarily: More than likely the tooth structure was compromised by the large cavity leaving thin walls which can crack. This does not necessarily mean that you will have an abscess and an infected nerve. You should see a dentist for evaluation and possible temporization. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I had a gingivectomy yesterday and my gums are still sore, what can I do to relieve the soreness?
Follow instructions: I am sure your periodontist or general dentist gave you post operative instructions. However, a gingivectomy is a surgical procedure and it is not unusual for the tissue to be sore for a few days post surgery. Fortunately the tissues in the mouth heal very quickly and the soreness should subside soon. However, try to refrain from alcohol, eating hard and spicy foods. Take Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Typically : Typically medications with anti-inflammatory properties such as Motrin work the best for dental pain. It is often difficult to get total pain relief if the nerve of the tooth is involved and definitive treatment is not initiated. Usually, pain is caused by swelling or infection. If that is the case, consider getting a prescription for an antibiotic prior to your visit if you are a patient of record at that office. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Having a bad pain& buring pain in my rest I hurt it about a month ago and never went to the doctor and it is very weak what could be wrong with it.
Sprain, tendonitis?: Wrists - like ankles, knees, elbows, shoulders, hips - all joints are delicate and have many components. Healing from an injury can be very slow and rest/immobilization usually helps followed by careful, prescribed exercises to rebuild strength. Even nighttime movement can prevent healing.
