Is maca root similar to fertilty blend?

Is maca root similar to fertilty blend?

They are over-the-counter supplements, which means little or no testing has been done, and nobody really knows for sure what the effects or side effects are. ...Read more

Interpret-please.mild broad-based disc bulge L5-S1 may contact S1 nerve root emerging from dural sac. 2 nerve roots don't appear compressed.

Back pain: It means the person who got this done was complaining of back pain probably with some radiation down one of the legs or perhaps even both.

Is it less painfull to extract a tooth after doing root canal ? (Root canal many years ago)

Is it less painfull to extract a tooth after doing root canal ? (Root canal many years ago)

A RCT extraction: RCT removes the nerve from within the tooth & in doing so prevents the transmission of sensation from the tooth when exposed to heat, cold & sweets. The outside of the tooth still has live tissue that connects it to the bone. Therefore a RCT tooth will not have more or less sensation to being extracted. HOWEVER, in all cases you will be completely numb and not feel anything & so it's a moot point. ...Read more

Dental experts! what is better root canal or tooth extraction?

Dental experts! what is better root canal or tooth extraction?

Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?

Perhaps..: Most upper molars only have 3 canals, but...A 4th is possible. Sometimes a tooth with a root canal needs time to calm down. I don't know what your time frames are but give it a little more time. Then go back and see the dentist that did your root canal. It might need a retreat or apicoectomy, or maybe just another round of antibiotics. Either way...I commend you...Good call. ...Read more
