See a dentist to prevent your situation from intensifying. A little cavity is so much less expensive and less uncomfortable than a crown, root canal or extraction. Prevention is the real key in dentistry. ...Read more

One of my top teeth appears to me moving ver slowly, being pushed back behind the 2 teeth next to it, occasionally it hurts. Why is this?

One of my top teeth appears to me moving ver slowly, being pushed back behind the 2 teeth next to it, occasionally it hurts. Why is this?

Not uncommon: Teeth want to erupt and to migrate toward the midline to compensate for the wear our stone-aged ancestors gave their teeth that we don't. If you have a malocclusion with slipped tooth-to-tooth contacts very slight crowding becomes more accentuated over time. Gum disease speeds the process. Ask your dentist to refer you to an orthodontist for an occlusal evaluation. ...Read more

On the more serious end of the soectrum is pre-cancerous leukoplakia, which is abnormal growth of the tissue. The patches may also be normal. See a dentist and have them checked. ...Read more

This is not good: You need to see a dentist now! Your teeth should not be breaking. Since this started a few months ago I suspect that you have decay in many of your teeth. The lack of pain may mean that the nerves are dead...All the more reason to get to your local dentist. ...Read more

I: I realize you are probably worried about your parents. However, if you broke your leg you would have it treated. This is not an issue of waiting. You need to put this on a top priority. Those teeth need to be shifte in place if possible (maybe not with this much time elapsed) or some other treatment. The longer you wait the higher the cost will be. Please check out the list of drs provided you by dr fowler and have your injury treated. ...Read more

Dentist needed to redo my 4 teeth gum graft. It hurt so much after I went home. I will not tell him at next appointment how I felt for one week. Smart?

No: The doctor patient relationship needs to have open and honest communication in order to provide and receive the optimal care. If the procedure was more uncomfortable than anticipated, you should relay that to your dentist. If you have other procedures to be performed, your dentist may possibly have other options available for you to make the procedure more comfortable. ...Read more

So I have an issue. Some of the back teeth in my lower jaw on the left side hurts if I chew down on food or if I brush my tongue on it. It happens for a day, stops for a few weeks, then picks back up. It's not a sharp pain, more like a dull pinching pain.
