3 mos baby teething signs 3 white bumps like milia in same area on top gum & unconsolable, tooth?

Call or page the Dr.: A 3 month-old baby who is "unconsolable" is fussy for a reason. If the baby had cold symptoms or has fever, an infection is likely. If truly not able to be consoled, the baby should be seen at the emergency room to rule out meningitis. If just "fussier than usual", parents can check the baby with no clothes on, give tylenol, (acetaminophen) give a warm bath, give a feeding, and if still fussy, go to urgent care. ...Read more

Need help: Sounds like what's missing from the equation is "regular professional care." Dental disease (tooth, gum, etc) does not self cure. False teeth must be remade periodically. Please see a Dentist for an evaluation. If gums are diseased the services of a Periodontist may be in order. If white spots are lesions the services of an Oral Surgeon may be in order. Please call now. ...Read more

Gum problems: There any number of causes for your symptoms. If you have a regular dentist, I would see him as soon as you can. He may employ the help of a periodontist for final diagnosis depending on what he finds. In my opinion without seeing for myself, it sounds like a fairly uncommon condition called anug- acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis. See your dentist or periodontist. ...Read more

My teeth were extracted over a yr ago and I have spots on gum where it feels like a very bad tooth pain if I touch it?

Could be bone chip: After extractions there are often bits of bone that are rejected by the body and work their way out through the gums over time. If a piece is just under the surface it could make a sore spot. If it isn't a bone chip or bone spur something may be going on. Either way see your dentist to have it checked out. Good luck. ...Read more

What are the white spots on my teeth and white lines above my gums and how long dose it take for a extraction to close up?

What are the white spots on my teeth and white lines above my gums and how long dose it take for a extraction to close up?

Start of decay: Direct examination is required for accuracy. White lines are possibly decalcification or the start of the decay process.

Another possibility is Fluoride staining. High Fluoride in water can cause white lines and spots even though the teeth are very resistant to decay.

Extractions will generally be sealed within 2 weeks. The site may not fully smooth over for 6 months or longer. ...Read more

I brushed my teeth with peroxide and baking soda...when I was done there was white spots on my gums. It's a day later and my gums are bleeding little?

Peroxide is Strong!: The peroxide probably bleached the pigment and then burned your gums. When we use peroxide in the mouth, we custom make trays to hold the material on the teeth, but away from the gums. I feel that hydrogen peroxide should be dilute 50/50 when used as a rinse. Do yourself a favor and buy toothpaste that has these ingredients in the paste. Baking soda is too abrasive to be used directly. ...Read more

What's this sore spot behind my upper teeth on my gum?

Incisive Papilla: It's where the blood vessels and sensory nerves to your plate exit the bone and speed out. If it's sore you're probably biting into it with your bottom front teeth, which means a deep vertical overbite and probably a larger than normal horizontal overbite. Has anyone ever suggested that you see an orthodontic specialist? If not, let me be the first. ...Read more
