If you have a yeast overgrowth in the mouth or thrush, can it get into the bloodstream if your gums bleed while brushing your teeth?
I have a cold sore on top of my lip. If i brush my teeth and used it to scrape my tongue is there a possibility of spreading the virus to my mouth right before i had the sore i might've had thrush?
Definitely: Thrush or candidiasis is caused by candida abbicans, an organism we all have in our entire digestive system that aids in digestion. Anything that stresses us (like haveing 12 teeth removed - or antibiotics given with the procedure) or upsets the balance of good & bad organisms can lead to thrush. See your treating dentist and they can give you a rinse or maybe pills to clear this up. ...Read more

Misinformation: The internet is full of misinformation about silver fillings. If they wear away they do NOT cause bodily harm. Bacteria will not erode fillings. Mouthwash will not erode fillings.

Please see your Dentist for evaluation. ...Read more

Will rubbing a pee-soaked diaper on an infant's face and/or tongue cure him of thrush and baby acne?
Not advisable: There is much folklore surrounding the use of urine as a cure-all, but little evidence of any benefit. Urine should be sterile and not cause disease, but there are much better treatments for both oral thrush and acne. Baby acne does not need treatment and will go away on its own. Benzoyl peroxide is far more effective for treatment of adult acne. ...Read more

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth) is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?
Feedback: Keep telling her that biting isn't nice and offer her words to express her needs instead of biting. If you (and her other caregivers) are consistent, biting should quickly give way to more acceptable behavior. Also, if you ever "play bite" with her, stop now, as it makes her feel that biting is ok in some circumstances, when it really is not. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there a proven link between breastfeeding and improved lifelong dental health? Do formula-fed babies get weaker teeth/thinner enamel? Thanks!
No direct link: Infants who fall asleep while either breast feeding and/or bottle feeding are both more prone to tooth decay as they don't swallow the last of thy milk or formula and it sits around their teeth all night causing decay. Bottles tend to be worse as the baby does not have to actively suck for liquid to keep dripping into their mouths. Either method used improperly will cause decay. ...Read more
