It's : It's great that you are aware of these things and of the potential cumulative radiation exposure. Unfortunately that wont work technically. Dental xrays use a lower dose compared to a spine or skull xray. The beam is focused on that small film they put in your mouth. The beam for a cervical spine of skull xray is larger in size and positioned to give certain, standard views which are different than the dental views. If the dental films were in your mouth at the time of exposure during a cervical spine film my guess is that they would be overexposed and/or blurry. Fortunately both exams are low dose in the spectrum of all radiology exams performed so undergoing them separately does not add much dose to your cumulative exposure. However, I do encourage you to speak to your doctor(s) about the necessity of the repeated xrays. ...Read more

No: Listerime does not cause cancer. Now having said that, people who smoke should not use a mouthrinse containing alcohol. The alcohol can dry the tissue in the mouth and make it more susceptible to the carcinogens in the tobacco. It is, however, the tobacco that will cause cancer...Not the listerine! ...Read more

Pinched neck from workout. Since then been quivering on/off last sev years, sometimes intense.  Cotton mouth comes/goes too. What in neck causes this?

You got me, chief: Unfortunately, "pinched neck" and "quivering" without more history or actually observing the "quivering" contain almost zero information of the kind a doctor needs to understand your problem. That this has been going on for "sev years" only makes things less clear, not more. Any HealthTap doc who even so much as hazards a guess about it is going out on a limb. See a doctor. ...Read more
