Common Questions and Answers about Tooth problems in adults


Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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?

Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I haven't had my gall bladder out yet and am due for surgery in april... argghhh My Dr says the removal of my gallbladder may cause the same problems I'm already getting from IBS.. heaven forbid. Will this ever end? Will I ever be able to go out with my friends for dinner again? I have a hot date coming up.. My doctor says anxiety doesn't help.. hello.. I'm anxious it's a first date for goodness sake.
Avatar n tn 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!!
Avatar m tn 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???...
Avatar n tn Also pain in my temple and teeth. Further, I have problems with my neck from auto accidents that I ahve been in. MRI of brain and orbit of eye showed nothing. I did have a vitrous detachment at that time but they say that shouldn't be causing the pain. So between the vitrous floating inside my eyeball and the film on the outside of my eyeball, it's driving me completely nuts! Work on computer all day long and strain to see daily.
Avatar n tn 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.
205269 tn?1395537874 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...
Avatar n tn 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!
535822 tn?1443980380 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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...
787406 tn?1339206783 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 ..
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn But what I do l know is that cysts can form anywhere in the body. And cysts can contain hair and even tooth like substances. Also, fungus can form in the kidneys! Who would have thought! I'm going to my urologist next week if I can tolerate the pain. Also, if you see what looks like tiny stones in the strainer and when you go to retrive it , it looks like ash being smeared it is a small blood clot from the stones irritating the kidneys.
4274823 tn?1388532698 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.
Avatar m tn From what I read it's fairly uncommon in young non-smokers like myself but have read articles about HPV causing it in young adults. Do you think my concerns are warranted? This has seriously been doing my head in.
1310633 tn?1430227691 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.

Avatar n tn I am 71 years old and have had a few allergies and sinus problems, but otherwise in good health..I wish you all the very best and hope we can find something to stop this...

Oh, and its also my left ear.. No problems with my right ear at all that has NO tube in it.. Anyone else have a tube in the ear that is the problem ear??
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn We started with him naked from the waist down and gradually moved to underwear. With #2 he had no problems and was pooping in the potty essentially 100% of the time by 24 months. He learned very fast that poop doesn't go on the floor, it goes in the potty, and once we switched to underpants he never seemed to want to poop in his underpants. Pee has been another story altogether.
Avatar n tn 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.
