First verify: First verify that you are truly allergic to the "caine" anesthetics. You may have had a side-effect with one of these drugs. Side-effects are not the same as allergies. Second, there are other forms of anesthesia to allow teeth to be pulled if needed. Do not pull your own teeth if you can avoid it. ...Read more

When wisdom teeth smells and dentist doesn't want to remove it as it will move all my teeth again what can I do, flossing and brushing doesn't help ?

When wisdom teeth smells and dentist doesn't want to remove it as it will move all my teeth again what can I do, flossing and brushing doesn't help ?

See another dentist: First, removing a wisdom tooth should have no effect on other teeth moving. The cause of your problem cannot be determined over the internet without personally examining you and see an x-ray of the area. My suggestion would be to see another dentist if what your dentist says does not make sense to you nor solve your problem. ...Read more

I spend too long on the toilet going poop and it will affect me professionally. I need to stay or else i wont feel finished. Is there a way to speedup?

Try metamucil: For some people taking a fiber supplement like metamucil make make for "better" stools that evacuate more easily. Also, try finding a regular time to have a BM when you do not have to be rushed to go to work so that you can take the time needed. Alternatively, try "adjusting your mind" to realize that you do not have to get up from the toilet feeling finished. It's okay to go again later. ...Read more

What to do if I have 8 wisdom teeth coming in and it hurts so bad, is there anything besides orajel to help with the pain?

But first, make appointment with Oral Surgeon. ...Read more
