Dental care, What can I do to stop a toothache prior to going to the dentist? Needing helpful advise, I am in a great deal of pain due to a toothache. It is causing me to get head and eye aches. I can not get into the dentist any sooner then a week from now and I need help stopping this pain until I can see my dentist. What can I do Advile is not working
I have a friend that has very yellow teeth. The thing is she wants to go out and buy dental strips to whiten her teeth with but I told her she should see a dentist for a basic cleaning first. My thinking is she has not been in a while and I know she must have tartar build up.
Will whitening her teeth with strips leave spots if the tartar is not removed first. That is want I told her but really not sure. I just think she needs to get to a dentist but I would like to know if I am right or not.
Please I have a toothache for the past three days. I have been using Orajel but it only helps a little and for a short time period. I need something stronger. I do not have money to see the dentist so some advise other the going to the dentist would be helpful for me.
One of my side teeth is getting sensitive to cold. I never had this problem before and I wondering if I could be getting a cavity. I do not see anything off hand so I am not sure. I have not been to the dentist in about seven months but everything was okay at that time.
Can you get a cavity that fast? Should I go back to the dentist? Not sure but do not want to have to spend money if it is nothing.
I really do not like to floss. I alway do it too hard or somthing because my gums are sore afterwords. So I know I do not floss as much as I should. Although I have good teeth my dentist always seems to know that I am not flossing once a day. I seen water picks that say they are better then flossing and it seems much easier to use. What are your thoughts.
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are a plastic material applied to the back surfaces of the teeth to help prevent cavities.
Should children get dental sealants?
Dental sealants are important for children since they protect the top surface of the molars where pits and fissures are more prevalent and are susceptible to bacteria by getting trapped in the pits and fissures of the tooth which leads to the onset of cavities. The plastic material / dental sealant covers the top surface area of the molar. Your dentist needs to be consulted before you have any dental work done on children to ensure they are receiving the proper dental health care.
What are the costs of dental sealants?
Dental sealants cost approximately $25-$49 per tooth but this can vary depending upon the geographic area in which you live in and the type of dentist you visit.
Do dental insurance plans cover dental sealants?
Some dental insurance plans do cover a percentage of the dental sealant procedure. Coverage depends upon the type of policy you purchased, the coverage limitations, co-insurance, policy waiting periods and deductibles.
Yesterday one of my crowns came off. My tooth does not hurt and the crown is not bent or messed up in any way. I want to know if it is safe to just super glue the crown back on? I am too poor to afford to go to the dentist and this country is totally screwed up as far as providing good low cost dental care to people who are in need.
I was told by my dentist that I have soft teeth which makes me more prone to getting cavities. I am wanting to know if there is any good toothpaste/mouthwash or both that will help my teeth issues and make it so I do not get cavities.
I am really thing of going to Mexico to get some much needed dental work done. Mexico is only less then two hours from where I live so it not a big deal going. I was wondering if anyone had any good or bad stories about having dental work done in Mexico.
Even with my dental insurance with all the dental work I need having it done in California is just to costly for me. However, I hear that if I go to Mexico for the dental work it would be half the cost and I would still get just as good dental care there as here. I would love some tips on what to do if I go to Mexico for my dental care. Things like how to pick a good dentist there, anything on the topic really would be good to hear.
I went to a dentist about three weeks ago because my back molar was starting to hurt me. I have not been to a dentist in a long while so I was well beyond just going for a check up. I was told that I should have five extractions my four wisdom teeth and the back molar that was hurting me because it could not be saved.
Wanting a second opinion since I was told I would need to go to an oral surgeon for the wisdom teeth extraction I went to a different dental office. Where that dentist did agree that I needed to have the one bad molar removed but I did not have to have my wisdom teeth pulled in his opinion. Which dentist is right? Is the first dentist trying to rip me off by referring me to an oral surgeon I when I do not have to have the teeth pulled?
What is the process of having a dental crown put on? I was told by my dentist that I have new large size cavity in a tooth that had an old filling in it. He said that, he can do the filing but advises me to have the tooth crowned so that it protects my tooth from braking.
It is a bad tooth that I also put a small chip in it once. I am worried that having a crown will hurt. What does a dentist do to put a crown on? Do I have to do anything special to take care of it? Advise please
About a little over two years ago I had knocked out a top front top in an accident. Not having any money I did nothing about it. Now that I am working full time again I have some money and would very much like to get it fixed.
Can you get a single tooth implant? If so by who? I mean I know a dentist but is it a specialist or can any dentist do an implant? My last questions is will dental insurance cover for a single tooth implant if I was to buy dental insurance now?
About a year ago I had a medium size filling done on a back molar. Now I went to the same dentist that did the filling only to be told that I have tooth decay under the filling. And that Now I may need a root canal and a crown done. Which is going to cost over $1000.00
However is this not the dentist fault in the first place? After all it is clear that he did not get all the decay out the first time when he did the filling and now it is worse and he going to charge me for his mistake. What is up with that? What can I do about this?
Okay so I am fourteen and I have too younger brothers. My parents work very hard for everything and with the economy the way it is they are always worried about money. I think that I may have a cavity starting up and I really do not want to have to tell my parents and put more stress on them over the cost of fixing it.
I notice this small brown spot on my tooth hat no matter how hard I brush or for how long it will not come off. I really does not hurt but what if it is a cavity? However if it is not a cavity just going to the dentist will cost money and then it would be for nothing.
I am trying to shop out dental insurance and since I have not been to the dentist a few years, I do not have any one dentist to go to so I am shopping dental offices to.

I live in central Florida and I am finding it very hard to find any dentist in my area that will accept medicaid. I would like to see a dentist since it been a while since I last been to one. Do you know how I can find who takes medicaid if anyone? And if not can you offer some suggestions on what I can do to get low cost dental services.
My mother who is 59 needs some very low cost dental services. I would not say her teeth are terrible but they are causing her to have some pain issues and she would really like to have them all fixed up so she looks better. She just does not have any extra money for dental care.
I want to help her out the best I can but I too am on a tight budget between myself and my two kids I can not afford to do much. I am hoping to find a way to get low cost dental care then between that and my helping her a little it will make it so she can afford the rest and have her teeth fixed. Any and all adivse is welcomed.
I do not go to the dentist like I should since truthfully they scare me. I get dental insurance though my work but never used it. I think I am able to go to any dentist but how do I know which dentist would be good? I have a really bad toothache so I know that I need some dental work but do not know how to choose a dentist that will be understanding to a 32 year old baby. Need advise.

I am 15 and my teeth are really ugly. My bottom teeth are fine but my top teeth have large spaces and I have a rather big over bite. My mother is a single parent and can’t afford braces for me. I also have two younger twin brother that are three so she is really busy with them. I know this and do try to understand that although she would like to get me braces even with the insurance she has she said it would still cost her around $2000.00
I am however left with zero confidence. And I hate my smile. Please does anyone know where I might go for cheaper braces? Or what I can do to fix my teeth without braces? Thanks
