I have had two fillings for many years. One of them fell out but gives me no pain at all. The other one that stayed hurts constantly. The only relief I get is when I put cool water on it. Even then, the relief is short-lived. It’s weird to me that the tooth that is… Continue reading Only Water Helps My Tooth Pain

Teenager’s Front Tooth Knocked Out
We were at my son’s school basketball game and one of the kid’s front teeth was knocked out by a player’s elbow. The coach had someone get a glass of milk to put it in but then everyone went back to playing. Can putting a tooth in a glass of milk for someone mean it… Continue reading Teenager’s Front Tooth Knocked Out
Should the Venue Pay for My Emergency Dental Visit?
I went to this smallish bar/venue that I have been to many times before. Generally, it’s a really chill place to hang, but this night it got crazy. Somewhere to the right of me a fight broke out. I don’t know what happened, but I’m getting pushed by a crowd. The bouncer comes anRead More

My sister was out dancing and some idiot showing off did a high kick that knocked a tooth of hers clean out. She didn’t worry about it and said she’d just get a fake one.

Porcelain Veneer Turning Blue
We purchased my daughter an entire set of porcelain veneers. The dentist suggested ten on top and eight on bottom. She had a small accident that left one of the teeth chipped. It was a very small chip so the dentist was able to fix it. The dentist smoothed it out and then, of course,… Continue reading Porcelain Veneer Turning Blue
Problem with Wisdom Tooth
I had a terrible toothache a few weeks ago and scheduled an appointment with my dentist. He said I had an infection in one of my bottom wisdom teeth, which he felt needed a specialist. I went to see the specialist who believes all the wisdom teeth need to be extracted. Unfortunately, he can’Read More
