TOOTHpaste: It is all in the name. The toothpaste may have caused a chemical burn in the area. In the future, use products made for the skin and keep the toothpaste in your mouth. Consult with a dermatologist regarding any blemish that may remain.

Is there a good type of toothpaste or anything I can use to get rid of cavities?

Is there a good type of toothpaste or anything I can use to get rid of cavities?

Advanced: If you can see cavities, they are too big to be helped by toothpaste that may help remineralize small enamel defects no larger than the head of a pin. You probably need professional care rather than the promise of an otc solution that will never be fulfilled. Please call your family dentist for an appointment.

Will toothpaste really work to get rid of zits over night?

Toothpaste will help: Toothpaste will help make them smaller but I do not think they will be gone just from toothpaste in one application. It is possible but toothpaste acts by drying out the pimple thus making it smaller.

Bad breath remedy: The first thing you need to do is have a comprehensive exam and xrays completed by your dentist. This is to rule out or treat decay and gum disease which is typically the source of bad breath. At that time your dentist/hygienist can make many recommendations on ways to treat bad breath.

Since I had the pimple I've been using toothpaste to get rid of it, could that have been the cause of the lump?

Since I had the pimple I've been using toothpaste to get rid of it, could that have been the cause of the lump?

Toothpaste for?: Toothpaste is not intended to be used to "get rid of pimples". There are lot's of other products on the market that will probably work much better. Don't rely on what you read on the internet for alternative methods of treatment. If acne is a problem consult with MD. Can't diagnose cause of lump nor what lump is over the internet.
