I've seen many people close their gaps by just wrapping small rubber bands around their teeth. Is that safe to do?

I've seen many people close their gaps by just wrapping small rubber bands around their teeth. Is that safe to do?

Very dangerous: First that's only a temporary solution, gap will eventually reopen. Second, if you close gap in middle you open 2 smaller gaps on either side. Third, if rubber band slips under gum line it will cause loss of attachment and teeth will fall out. You need professional care to do this properly. Your friends should see their Dentists immediately to check integrity of the Gingival Attachment. ...Read more

Are vacuum assisted breast core biopsy guns always attached to a machine? the one I had was just a gun, not cord attached. Not vacuum assisted then?

Are vacuum assisted breast core biopsy guns always attached to a machine? the one I had was just a gun, not cord attached. Not vacuum assisted then?

Yes: Yes, typically the vacuum assisted biopsy guns are attached to the computer/machine because a program runs it and the vacuum runs through it.Sometimes a handheld stereotactic gun is used instead due to the nature of the lesion being biopsied-much better for dense tissue or firm lesions.The clumsiness of all the tubing with the vacuum ones can be a problem too although better for calcifications. ...Read more

Worried about tetanus. Small wound from metal bar in outdoor shower on farm between toes. Shots out of date. Cleaned/bandaged wound with gentamicin.

Worried about tetanus. Small wound from metal bar in outdoor shower on farm between toes. Shots out of date. Cleaned/bandaged wound with gentamicin.

Give me a boost.: The general rule is to have a booster if it has been more than 10 years since last shot. If the wound is deep and contaminated and it has been more than 5 years since your last shot, you will need a booster. Your wound care sounds adequate, but there is no way of telling if it is adequate enough. To remove all doubt, get a booster. ...Read more

My 8wk old house puppy nipped at me on left arm. No broken skin, no blood just small tooth mark. Cleaned wound, etc. Rabies? Pup 2 young for shots.

My 8wk old house puppy nipped at me on left arm. No broken skin, no blood just small tooth mark. Cleaned wound, etc. Rabies? Pup 2 young for shots.

Rabies: Rabies is extremely rare nowdays in the us, especially as a result of dog bites. If there was any risk of rabies, it would be from street dogs, but it doesn't sound like your puppy is a street dog. Also, rabbit dogs would normally be expected to act accordingly. Your case doesn't allude to that. I'd not worry about rabies, but would definitely watch the wound as it is prone to infection. ...Read more

Barber use hair clipper machine with blood on it of previous client to make me bald.On scalp i had open wounds & open bleeding pimples.Hiv, hep c risk?

Possible: In general it requires a fairly large innoculum to acquire HIV or hep c from a procedure such as a close haircut. There are no relevant case reports in the literature that I have found of such a transmission. You should require anyone performing any procedures on your body to use appropriate, clean (sterile) equipment. ...Read more
