I noticed a black triangle come in on one tooth, plus I have braces. Is it caused by braces?

Could be bone loss: I am not quite certain what you mean. If you mean between two teeth at the gum level, it may be due to bone loss which in turn leads to the loss of the triangle of tissue between teeth. This appears as a 'black triangle' but in reality is a space rather than being filled by gum tissue. Often food gets stuck in this area as well.
Have your orthodontist and your dentist check this area soon. ...Read more

Don't know: Never heard of "triangle wires." orthodontists use rectangular wires to control the torque of the roots of the teeth.

Is the "triangle of death" around the nose area true?

Is the "triangle of death" around the nose area true?

Basically no: The concern is a skin infection here traveling to the cavernous sinus and causing thrombosis. I heard this as a first-year medical student and got all worried about my acne doing this, and got set straight by an annoyed house officer. Acne won't go to the deep structures, and if you have a cellulitis on your face, you're going to get treated anyway. ...Read more

I started wearing elastics a few days ago, they're size 1/4" heavy and I have to make a triangle. I put them on and my gums bleed, is this normal?

I started wearing elastics a few days ago, they're size 1/4" heavy and I have to make a triangle. I put them on and my gums bleed, is this normal?

Ask your dentist: In general gums can get irritated after placing braces and can bleed easier, it could be that the elastic is pushing on the gums, you should ask the dentist to show you how to place it, it may reduce the pressure. On the other hand the gums can adjust to the pressure and bleed less after awhile. Just keep the area clean and check with your hygienist as well. ...Read more

I waxed my nose, like I usually do, then came across article shouting "TRIANGLE OF DEATH" I am now concerned, am I going to be alright? I think its BS

I waxed my nose, like I usually do, then came across article shouting "TRIANGLE OF DEATH" I am now concerned, am I going to be alright? I think its BS

Triangle of death: While dr oz is correct when he says that infections in that area do have the potential to spread to the brain, calling it the triangle of death is a bit extreme. My suggestion would be to use nose trimmers rather than waxing. If you feel you need to wax, clean the area thoroughly with a safe antiseptic. Then, if you notice any blood or inflammation, wash the area immediately and keep it clean. ...Read more

Hello, the last time watching the pressure on the left side of the rib cage as if under the ribs in the Triangle area. Would you tell me please what can it be I was desperate. I am sorry for my poor english.

Pain: Pain or pressure in the left side of the abdomen can be from stomach, spleen, bowels, ribs. If the pain is in the flank or the back it could be kidney.

Bites: Although there are other potential causes, the description you are given can be consistent with an insect bite, such as spider for example. If the sites enlarge, change color, start to drain, or she develops really any other changes in the area she would be wise to be seen. Particularly if there is a possibility it was a brown recluse spider, which can cause necrosis in the area. ...Read more
