teeth

my right front tooth has been sensitive to cold, it has also been sensitive to cold air, when i would be outside and i would breath in heavly my tooth will get very sensitive. i have braces on top and bottom teeth (dont no if that could be a factor). i got my braces tightened 3 days ago and the sensitivity started this morning. i was thinking it could also be that my teeth have been moving around. i really dont want a cavity on one of my front teeth.
If a tooth becomes infected how and in what ways can it effect the rest of your body health? Does it matter or make any differnce if the infection goes on for over a year?
my 15 month old has a tooth, or tooth-like growth, coming in behind his right maxillary incisor. As of now only a small tip is visible. It does not seem to be causing any discomfort; I noticed it when retrieveing a bit of paper he was attempting to eat. His four upper and four lower teeth have come in without problems. I've read that supernumary teeth are fairly common, but do they typically errupt so soon?
I never remembered the last time I slept for 13 hours! Yes that's right When i went to bed it was dark and when I woke still it was dark. I dont know what made me sleep so long. When woke up it was dead silence, woke up with a strange feeling, a feeling i have never felt in my entire life...it was like numb..no words to describe it..it was like a total emptiness, i didnt feel my heart beat, I could hear me only breathe and felt total loneliness.
Children with low vitamin D levels may also develop muscle cramps, seizures and breathing problems. Emergence of milk tooth may be delayed in them. Other symptoms of low vitamin D levels in kids include irritability and depression. In some rare cases, heart problems, like cardiomyopathy may also develop. Adults with osteomalacia develop weakness and bone pain, especially in ribs, hips, pelvis, thighs and feet. They may find it difficult to walk or climb stairs.
I've spent the past four years unable to enjoy things to much due to UPQ Pain, and nausea from my Gall Bladder, and was hoping that finally I get to have my life back and go out and enjoy the things in life that I was missing. I never had any problems with needing a bathroom in a hurry after eating before the surgery, and I was wondering what my chances are now?
hopefully someone will be along to tell us both whether or not the symptoms we have are indicative of MS or not. I'm especially concerned about the problems in my eye. Also, I'm in such darned pain!!
im on natural (nutri adrenal) adrenal support, as my symptoms suggested i needed help,and my levels were low in the range on 3 of 4 in the saliva test (on a good completely stress free day). anyway... i only feel ok on NO meds... ive now tried t3 only /t4 only / mixture / dessicated / mixture... i cant get above the: 1/4 grain / 25mcg t4/ 5mg t3 level. my symptoms include huge pressure headaches, some kind of apnea / sleep wake cycle wakes me all night /seizury things - all in sleep???...
I'm certainly going to talk to mine when I go back and tell him about this forum and we've all got the same problems, being treated the same, and no relief. I, too, have problems walking like in malls and large spaces, with my balance.
Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned. I think I/we can guess or prognose just as well or better than they can at times particularly if we know something about health and or ourselves and our own health. Never be afraid to speak up because I feel strongly that digestive tract problems are real and translate into other real nasty symptoms like this.
Problem is once I brush my teeth, then I lose that tired feeling... I'm beginning to suspect there's some kind of sugar in regular tooth paste... It seems to perk me up, which may be soemthing to consider for the morning, but not for bed time... I could brush with pet toothpaste. That may lack certain chemicals that are in "human" toothpaste, but something about brushing meat flavored paste over my teeth turns me off...
Hi Sara, Teeth clenching or bruxism in adults is usual seen due to excessive stress or anxiety, suppressed anger, or frustration, and even after use of antidepressents. Teeth clenching can lead to increased tooth sensitivity and tension type headache, facial and jaw pain. If you think you are grinding your teeth due to stress please seek professional counselling. Exercise and meditation can help cut down stress levels. You can use a mouth guard or a dental splint.See if these help. Good luck!
They said obviously I have 'problems' and must be feeding that to my daughter. I removed her from school and put her in one 15 minutes away where she graduated with honours and never took one day off school, as she loved it so much. THAT school was totally aware of the bullying and gave her a 'buddy' to whom she could confide. That new school had mediation days and the kids all knew where they stood on the bullying which rarely happened. I cannot believe that was 10 years ago.
When I blow my nose, it smells really bad, and I can taste it every once in a while in the back of my throat. Any ideas of what the cause may be and what I can do? I think when the cold passes, the smell will be gone, but I never had this before with a cold. Thanks.
Or a bridge tooth? I forget what it's called... but it's when they put the fake tooth in and bridge it to the two teeth on either side (my husband had to have that done when he was a kid because of a bike accident). Did you bite the dentist? i did that once years ago (in my 20s). I was very proud of myself when I went to have my root canal over the weekend and I did not bite or kick the dentist. Yes, I freaked out too. Root canals are major work... oh and getting teeth yanked instead...
I have also learned how to sit better at the computer so that I am not straining to see the screen. I have not had any tooth problems... Hope this helps!
Children find the sucking very soothing ,it is entirly up to the parent in their decision, too many rulkes nowadays by governments and the powers that be telling us what to do and how to feed our children ..
She then had her first ever panoramic xray done, which shocked the dentist as it showed she had a tiny cavity in her first pre-molar tooth. He says he cannot see it but it show on the xray, so he plans on filling it on the 14th January. She has only had this tooth for 4 months (it came through in September) If her teeth are perfect, according to her dentist, and she has only had the tooth a short time, how can she have a cavity? and why can't the dentist see it except on the xray?
But to be honest with everyone here, very few people I grew up with resulted in having severe health problems due to said fluoride rinses. I say that because while I have Graves', I highly doubt it's from fluoride-I have type 1 diabetes, and auto-immune diseases can go hand in hand, and I had signs of something up with my pancreas long before I ever did the fluoride rinse. I also grew up on well water because I grew up in very rural areas.
Some 1.75 million adults would be newly eligible if the Lone Star State joins in. It stands to gain $25.3 billion in federal funds over four years to insure poor adults, while spending $1.3 billion, according to the Center for Public Policy Priorities, an advocacy group for low-income Texans. On Thursday morning, representatives from counties, hospitals, insurers and other groups discussed coordinating their message to Governor Rick Perry and lawmakers in Austin.

Many adults and teenagers suffer from tooth discoloration. Often the color as a precursor to serious problems such as tooth decay.You basically have two options when it comes to curing a discoloration of the teeth. The first is dental veneers. These are thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to teeth. In addition to hiding the yellow teeth, they can heal the tooth gaps and chips.
I never put the numbness/tingling that started in my left hand in 'conjunction', so to speak, with the problems i have with my arms and hands now. It started in my pinky and slowly spread across a couple of more fingers. But then occasionally i would wake up with some pretty tough numbness in my arms and hands. Sometimes one is worse than the other, but usually if it is happening at all, then there is numbness in both arms/hands. Now it is every night, if not waking me up 2-4 times a night.
Yeah, it's minimally invasive because they go through the back of your neck, not the front (which requires disc removal and hence fusion) but remember when they go through the back of your neck they have to pierce through and retract many important muscles---- and this is exactly what you don't want--- more trauma to muscles that are already tight and out of balance.
Make them wash their sheets and blankets, not let them drink anything after 6pm when everyone else is b/c u r too lazy to cook before 6pm, and setting an alarm that is waking her up in the middle of the night(she has school for goodness sakes).She probably did have problems with the divorce and stress of it and now you are just causing her more stress. No wonder she is hiding her bed linens.She don't want to have to deal with you.
Try keeping yourself very well hydrated (not overly as that can create some really bad problems in and of itself...perhaps, 8 oz per hour for a bit). Perhaps, something with electolytes in it like a sports drink (NO cafeine). Gatoraide or one of those might work. Don't overdo those either. One or two per day and lots of water. Please keep us updated as to how you are doing.
Fever of 102-105 or around there every 2-3 weeks in my daughter that is 14 months old. My son never had these problems, every once in a while, she will have a runny nose also, but usually just the fever. Over time she has become resistent to the tylenol and motrin. ER said it looks like strep throat, but inconclusive, so they gave her meds, but her fever was gone within 18 hours like always, so I don't think they were right. I can't get any answers either!
The primary cause of chronic mouth breathing in children is frequent upper respiratory tract allergies and/or enlarged tonsils and adenoids. In adults, in addition to enlarged tonsils and adenoids, mouth breathing could also be due to nasal passage obstructions such as a deviated septum. Also, malocclusion in adults can also be seen with loss of teeth and grinding, which will cause a shift in the normal positional anatomy of the dentition.
Carotid Atherosclerosis( hardening or clogging) is a major cause of storkes. In a recent published study in Sleep, it was shown that heavy snoring in abscence of sleep apnea also seriously added to the risk for carotid Atherosclerosis and stroke. In this study a group of 110 volunteers were broken down into three groups based on the severity of their snoring.
