Pic Of The Sing And Splint After You Breake Your Collarbone
Can i keep the stitches in and get new cast/packing after two weeks when my dentist sows the gum to a new location? My gums started to recede at age 24. At age 28 my dentist took some of the gum on the roof of my mouth and surgically attached it to where
No: Stitches should dissolve or be removed, depending on type by one week. Longer than that they just attract bacteria. Their only purpose is to bring tissue together so the repair can take place. This is called closure. The packing also is usually removed at this time. Sometimes your surgeon may elect to re pack for protection after suture removal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If your dental implant crown sits up higher then the rest of your teeth what can a dentist do to make it look lines up with the rest of your teeth?
Re-evaluate: Your restorative dentist can re-evaluate the appearance, and make corrections based on the adjacent and opposing teeth, either by grinding porcelain or sending it back to the lab. If there is a reason that the teeth cannot look like you want them to, have your dentist explain why in a way that you can understand. ...Read more
What can cause teeth to wear down quickly? I need my teeth for the next three fourths of my life. Can simply chewing food do this or gliding wrong
See your dentist: Teeth get abraded/worn by age, diet, medications and grinding. Normal wear and tear creates some, but at age 25--you need acid. Acid comes from your gut (gerd), plaque (bacteria convert sugar into acid) and diet (think: lemonade, carbonated and energy drinks). Dental cleanings and Fluoride will help to limit it, but brushing does not prevent acid erosion if the diet is high in sugar and/or acid. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If you sprain your back at the absolute lowest part of the vertebra and it doesn't heal correctly could that messed up your gate with the way you walk?
Yes: Gait change after low back "strain" describes sacroiliac joint disorder from mechanical injury. Absent radiculopathy vertebral injury unlikely. Iliolumbar ligament damage causes upright pelvis to counternutate, causing slight lateral displacement of anterior pelvis, resulting in lateral eversion of ipsilateral foot, w. first foot-to-ground contact shifted to posterior-lateral aspect of heel. ...Read more

Is it normal swelling after a wisdom extraction to feel hard and start to stretch sown the outside of your neck? Also have white patches in throat?
Post Op symptoms: Since every surgery and every individual is different, along with the fact that we can't actually examine you, we can't know for sure what if what you describe is normal it not. The white patches may or may not be related to the surgery. What you describe certainly warrants you contacting the surgeon and having him\her see you right away for an evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Supposing you keep pushing on the tip of your nose really hard. Will the cartilage break and will the tip be lifted a little?
NO - STOP!: If you are thinking of trying do-it-yourself Plastic Surgery on your nose, I strongly advise against it! Your current idea is much more likely to cause bleeding, pain, swelling, and deformity at the end or bridge of your nose, not the lift you are hoping for. Plastic Surgeons spend close to 20 years in college, medical school and residency training - don't ruin your face and spend $$ to fix it. ...Read more
If you fractured your 5th metacarpal can you still squeeze and pick up things without pain and write pages of notes.?

Normal: The range of motion of the elbow is often decreased after extended immobilization. In a child, this range of motion should return to normal or near normal fairly quickly with continued use. If it is not improving quickly, you should discuss with your doctor if re-evaluation or physical therapy is indicated. ...Read more

Can you explain if it's possible to have the rest of my baby teeth and braces put on at the exact same time?
Ask a Pro: I assume at 33 you have over-retained baby teeth with no underlying permanent teeth. Removal of baby teeth best done by your General Dentist or an Oral Surgeon. Malocclusion correction best done by an Orthodontic Specialist. See an Orthodontist for diagnosis, treatment planning, and staging of the phases of your malocclusion correction. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If a bone into sinus was broken and you blew your nose because your doctor didn't tell you about it, can the fragment of bones be lodged in the brain?
Extremely unlikely: If a nasal fracture occurred that could form bone fragments that could go into the brain, the initial injury would have had to have been so traumatic that you would have been hospitalized and severely injured. At the time scans would have picked up any bone fragments that could have been problematic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Whenever i talk to someone a lot of saliva starts to accumulate at my tongue and at the tip of the tongue. It irritates me a lot while speaking because i can't speak and pronounce the words properly. Kindly tell me what's the best treatment?
No treatment: Producing a lot of saliva is a good thing so i would not recommend to reduce your saliva production. Try to speak slower so that when you feel it accumulating you can easily swallow. If you're having trouble pronouncing words or speaking in general you may want to consult a speech pathologist. They might have better exercises you can follow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
