I haven't applied so even if I got in, I'd probably be 32, but 2 years ago I finished any science pre-reqs that I would need to apply. I had a M.Ed in psych 2010 but not enough sciences. My two big questions: 1. is 31 too old to go back to dental school? 2. I have a mortgage with monthly payment of about $2300. Would I be able to afford to live in my house?

  • How bad do my teeth have to be in order to get braces?

    Best answer: It depends on the orthodontist and how they evaluate your teeth.
    If you have something really bad, like a bite issue, then you will be recommended to get them no matter what.
    If you just have one tooth that is a bit crooked, they probably won't recommend it because of the cost.

  • I’m getting anesthesia for my wisdom teeth surgery (all 4) is this happy gas? I really dont want happy gas can I request something else?

    Best answer: Feel free to ask questions of your surgeon. Today, most people get an IV and are not given nitrous oxide. You will be out cold, not just loopy like when getting a filling at the dentist. You will also get a local anesthetic, like novocaine, so your mouth will remain numb after the general anesthetic is gone.

  • Dental infection, too late any advise?

    Best answer: You can use colloidal silver in your mouth. No bacteria lives in the presence of silver. In days gone by, people used to put a silver coin in the milk jug because it kept the milk from getting sour.

    Purchasing colloidal silver is not cheap, but you can use a spray bottle and just spray it on your teeth, so that will help it go a long way. I knew I wanted to use silver fairly consistently, so I have purchased a colloidal silver machine, and make my own. The machines are expensive, but once that expense has been paid out, the actual cost of the silver used in the machine and the cost of running the machine is mere pennies. After I had been using colloidal silver orally, the next time I went for a dental check-up, the hygienist said I had only very light calculus, and it was the quickest, easiest cleaning I have ever had. I could not see any calculus on my teeth, no staining as there had always been before. The colloidal silver keeps bacteria from setting up housekeeping in my mouth.

    Look up this product on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Nutribiotic-Defen... It is used as a natural antibiotic.

    For any infection on the skin, you can use iodine. Iodine is such a powerful antibiotic, it is what is used on someone's skin who is going to be cut open in surgery. If you want the iodine to soak deeper into the skin, combine it with DMSO. I have used this combination to get rid of cold sores overnight, and I once had a boil in my armpit that went away very fast using this treatment. Some people have used iodine successfully on skin cancer.

    While you are working to improve the condition of your mouth, rinse mouth with water fairly frequently, and do not leave anything sugary in your mouth; this will feed bacteria and worsen the problem. Stay away from sodas, and rinse after any kind of milk product. If you know anyone who has a magnetic pulser machine, ask to borrow it and use it on your gums. It helps kill deeply embedded bacteria.

    Anyone who has healing to do will assist that healing by taking gram doses of Vitamin C with Lysine.

    The gums by the very last bottom tooth in the right side of my mouth has become swollen just enough to get in the way when I bite down, causing pain. I've tried eating less and took some pain medicine, but they are still a little swollen with pain and I still can't bite down all the way on food to actually chew correctly. What can I do before going to the dentist, as I am not available to go anytime soon.
