• Should you do dental hygiene in this order: Floss, mouthwash, and brush?

    Best answer: order doesn't matter, as long as the food particles and plaque are removed.
    My preference is for brushing, flossing, and then mouthwash because I feel that brushing first makes it easier to floss

  • How do I get pineapple sting out of my mouth?

    I ate a lot of pineapple, and it s got enzymes that tear apart mouth meat or something. My tongue stings, and I asked my homie Marco what to do and he said "its a chemical burn slumdog, you just gotta let it rest". He s my good friend, but I do not believe him. There must be something I can do

  • Can you fill a tiny cavity yourself?

    Hey. I have a very very tiny hole in the front of my back tooth. It’s like the size of a pin. There’s very slight dull pain and the dentist said “it’s erosion, and I can see the Dentin is exposed but there’s no active decay”.

    Hey. I have a very very tiny hole in the front of my back tooth. It’s like the size of a pin. There’s very slight dull pain and the dentist said “it’s erosion, and I can see the Dentin is exposed but there’s no active decay”. He offered to seal it with composite resin when he’s removing my wisdom tooth as my mouth will be numb but is there a way I could seal it myself until my next appointment to remove my wisdom tooth? Because I don’t want it to start decaying.

  • Why are my gums hurting when I brush my teeth?

    For about a week now, my top gums hurt whenever I brush the fronts of my top teeth. Does anyone know why or what I can do to get it to stop? Dentist is expensive. :(

  • Does a dental assistant have to take regular classes to become a dental hygienist?

    What I mean by 'regular classes' is basically the unnecessary classes that aren't really required for dental hygiene but college makes it that you are required for it no matter what your major is. You know, the regular math, English, psychology, SLS, etc... Does a dental assistant kind of... show more

You know, the regular math, English, psychology, SLS, etc... Does a dental assistant kind of "skip" that part because they are already in the field?

    Ok, so im 15 years old and a few days ago i went to the dentist because i saw those little tiny black dots on my tooth and i know thats a sign of a cavity. The dentist took 2 xrays of my teeth and he said that there was decay and theres a simple fix. I was scared out of my mind so i wasnt really paying attention to what he was saying, and my mother was in the waiting room at the time. He said i could either book an appointment or have the procedure done then. There was no anesthetic or anything, so honestly im a bit confused as to what i had done. Im fairly certain i had a filling with the stuff that sets with the light thingy, as he used this thing that beeped after a certain amount of time. The thing is, i thought i had 4 done, as when i looked in the mirror my 2 very back lower mullers looked brand new and my other 2 lower mullers had some sort of white stuff in (though it wasn t the same colour as my tooth). I brushed my teeth that night and those 2 fillings that weren t the colour of my teeth disappeared? I know i sound stupid but i hardly even brushed hard as i was scared, and when i spat out my toothpaste its like they were gone. My back 2 fillings are still there. Sorry if this was confusing and long, im just really concerned.

    I got my cavity filled yesterday morning. It was a pretty large cavity and was close to hitting a nerve, but didn’t hit it. I’ve been having really bad tooth pain since. I can’t bite down in the slightest or I get searing pain. I also have braces, not sure if that means anything. And is there any way to alleviate the pain? I literally can’t eat and have tried taking medicine but it hasn’t helped in the slightest
