My gf has a tongue piercing that she's had for awhile, yesterday where the bottom ball meets the bottom of her mouth is irritated and has a small bump?
Blocked Saliva Gland: Any piercings that communicate with the oral cavity can be very damaging to the hard (teeth, bone) and soft (gum, tongue, lip, cheek) tissues. While i don't like to see these piercings, i recommend plastic instead of metal as this is slightly less traumatic to the tissues. It could simply be irritation or could have caused something else like a blocked salivary gland. See a dentist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I just had an apicoectomy. The dr said the infection ate through the bone into my sinus. My left nostril has been bleeding since the procedure. Help?
Sinus Perforation: Many of the roots of the upper molars and premolars are very near the maxillary sinus. Only a very thin layer of bone and sinus tissue lining separate them. When there is an infection in the root apex of these teeth it can perforate into the sinus and drain. If the drainage from the sinus does not improve as the infection heals over a week after surgery. Go back to the dentist who did the surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There is a new, but expensive medication called OraVerse that makes the numbness go away much more quickly. It is being used a lot with children and adults with disabilities & those that need to speak right after dental work. It is not a good choice after having an extraction or some other procedures. ...Read more
