560272 tn?1311350293 ve had a bunch of tests run but never any test for vitamin deficiency. Can a B or D deficiency, or Calcium.......really cause an anxiety disorder plus all my other symptoms? I'm just unsure if I want to spend the money on more tests as I have no insurance. Any input would be great! Oh-p.s nothing has ever helped my anxiety or eczema. I've taken a multivitamin before with no help, I also have tried not eating wheat or dairy.
Avatar m tn The study indicates that proper vitamin D signalling might inhibit the disease. Since a vitamin D deficiency hampers proper vitamin D signalling, the deficiency might also lead to gum recession and disease.
Avatar n tn in the last 4 weeks, I have had 3 teeth chip and one molar broke. What is going on? I am 52; is it age or am I deficient in some vitamin/mineral?
1047019 tn?1256719961 Does diet soda cause tooth decay? My friend allows her daughter to drink limitless quantities of diet coke, and she insists it isn't the cause of her tooth problems. The daughter has had a silver tooth, and more recently major fillings in some of her back baby teeth, for which the dentist wanted to put her under general anesthesia. My friend insists diet Coke is perfectly fine for teeth?
Avatar n tn What do you know about severe Vitamin D definacy and tooth decay....Im asking this because I am a 45 yr old female who has always had fairly decent teeth with minimal cavities through out my life. Just over the past year or so I've come down with a "severe" case of Low Vit. D, I am taking huge amounts of perscribed supplements for this...all of a sudden ( meaning over the last six months), I have developed alot of tooth deacy,,,hence this one I just had filled yesterday.
Avatar f tn My two year old has had severe tooth decay since her first teeth came in. She breast feed until 14 month and then was switched to rice milk due to a dairy allergy. At 18 months I noticed decay. She had 6 caps and 4 fillings at 2 in April. She stopped using rice milk then. Just last month at a check up and cleaning she had to have another tooth filled and one of the crowns pulled.
Avatar f tn whats tooth decay and what can happen
Avatar f tn I have decay under crown and dentist wants to remove tooth but I also have a bridge next to this and the supporting tooth for this has roots going sideways due to an impacted tooth in gum line. This may become unstable after extraction and i end up with a large gap . what is the alternative. I have no pain under crown but gum is soft due to the decay.

Avatar f tn but the decay that close the the nerve... depending on hoe close the perm. tooth is to the baby tooth it could already have a bit of decay already. a root canal and a crown are very expensive to be doing on a tooth that will be falling out very soon. if you plan to get him braces have the tooth extracted to prevent any possible decay to his adult teeth if it hasnt already. and that will give the adult tooth the space it needs to come in if it is close enough any ways.
Avatar f tn it turned out that I do have decay on this tooth and I feel pain because it goes under my gum.. so baically my gum hurts. They put a temporary filling in and we wait now.
Avatar m tn hello im 18 years old and i have tooth decay and cavity,i have only pain near jaw teeth and head, as i see no swelling or fever i went to dentist she said that it does not look like Tooth abscess and told me to come in a week,can i ask during Tooth abscess your face always gets swollen yes?
Avatar f tn It usually originates from a bacterial infection which has accumulated in the soft dead pulp of the tooth. It can be caused by tooth decay, broken teeth or any extensive periodontal disease. There is no definite time it takes for this abscess to form. It depends on the severity of the organisms and their virulence. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn suggesting that I do not have a bleeding gums or the gums are not wounded or broken and bleeding... just a tooth decay.. did I get infected also... I have done it last Saturday evening, July 12, 2008, I do not clearly remember if I give her the oral sex longer... because the morning I have a headache and feeling not ok like I would be having a fever and cannot eat well, and so my stomach is little troubled also... should I think it is but a Hang Over?

Avatar m tn Removing gum is never a good idea, doing this leaves room for bacteria to get under the crown and decay the tooth and especially as you age because our gums just naturally recede. You will be able to eat as always just maintain good oral health. Brush 2-3 times a day, thoroughly but gently with a soft toothbrush. Floss thoroughly but gently every night and use a toothpaste containing fluoride and a mouthwash that helps strengthen your tooth enamel and kill bacteria.
Avatar n tn if the filling that exists in the top of the tooth is large, and if this newly discovered decay is extensive, the tooth may need a crown after the decay is cleaned out and the cavity filled. remember that the more "filling" a tooth has, the more prone to fracture it is. when teeth do fracture, sometimes they cannot be restored at all, so placing a crown befoe that happens is oftentimes prudent if the fillings are large.
Avatar f tn So I have one upper molar tooth which was root canaled 10 years ago and one next to this which was root canaled 4 years ago. Last month my dentist mentioned I have a decay on one of these (i dont remember which one). We have arranged an appointment for the 15th of December. But this week this tooth hurts :( I can not imagine how.. root canaled teeth can be decayed ok but pain? Why am I feeling pain if this tooth is basically dead for years?
Avatar m tn I would consult with your endodontist and see what they say. They opened the tooth and saw what was going on inside. Your general dentist can do that also. If there's extensive decay in that tooth still or there's some reason to believe the bridge is bad, then replacing it would be ideal. If the decay isn't bad and the bridge seems fine, then placing a filling in there would work as well.
Avatar n tn You may find that dentists do not spend any time counseling their patients relative to the things that cause tooth and root decay, or how to get free from it. Why should they when they make money from dental disease. Dental decay is the number one disease in the world. The primaryPrimary amyloidosis Primary biliary cirrhosis Primary hyperparathyroidism Primary insomnia Primary lymphoma of the brain cause is diet, and no amount of dental work can stop the decay process.
Avatar f tn You should check with your dentist for a decay in the tooth which could be on the sides of the tooth and not visible to you.
