I have both upper and lower permanent retainers placed yesterday. The lower one cut my tongue and i'm bleeding. Should i be worried?

The good news is once the offending cause is removed, it heals rapidly! it is likely that your retainer has minor but pointy edge somewhere. Please return to your dentist asap. Once the retainer is adjusted you should feel better almost right away. This type of imperfection in retainer is hardly visible, and post-insert adjustments are common. ...Read more

A piece of glass cut the middle of my tongue while eating food. What else should I do? I used ice to stop the bleeding. Do I need a Dr. or RX?

A piece of glass cut the middle of my tongue while eating food. What else should I do? I used ice to stop the bleeding. Do I need a Dr. or RX?

Glass injury: Superficial cuts to the tongue generally heal quickly, with no intervention required. You can rinse mouth with water after eating to loosen debris. One risk of glass injury is a shard of glass remaining in the wound. This can be identified with XRAY, however the tongue is highly sensitive and I suspect you would notice it. Given bleeding has stopped, no further action required. See Dr if problem. ...Read more
