• What does it mean if my dentist says my tooth is "field"?

    I was at the dentist today for a checkup. My dentist was checking the teeth and her assistant would write down what she says about it. She said a few of my teeth were "field". It went something like this "2 OK, 3 OK, 4 OK, 5 field, 6 OK, 7 field" etc.

  • Braces off - Scared of teeth moving back?

    I got my braces off yesterday. Going to pick up my retainer tomorrow but I'm just paranoid that they're not going to work and my teeth will shift a bit. Surely if I wear it how I should my teeth won't move back?

  • I use my brothers toothbrush to clean my shoes?

    For a long time I have used my brothers toothbrush to clean my shoes when they get dirty. My brother is unaware I do this. Is it ok that I do this? I run his toothbrush under water after I am done cleaning my shoes with it.

  • I take good care of my teeth but my gums are suddenly bleeding?

    Best answer: Waterpiks are not at all the best way to floss. I don't know why your dental hygienist told you that, but he's not entirely right. Using tooth irrigation AS WELL AS basic string floss will benefit your teeth more than just using either. But, there are always things (plaque, bits of food) that waterpiks... show more
    Best answer: Waterpiks are not at all the best way to floss. I don't know why your dental hygienist told you that, but he's not entirely right. Using tooth irrigation AS WELL AS basic string floss will benefit your teeth more than just using either. But, there are always things (plaque, bits of food) that waterpiks cannot remove, but string floss can. I'd recommend interchanging them. Using string floss one day/night, waterpiks the other, etc.

    In addition to that, extra soft bristle toothbrushes are essentially useless unless you have very inflamed gums or are a child. In addition, soft bristles are fine, medium bristles are fine, hard bristles aren't really great for your gums. So I'd advise switching to a soft/medium, instead of extra soft. Otherwise, you may as well brush your teeth with a cloud of smoke.

  • Cyst Under Cracked Tooth?

    About a year ago I cracked my tooth. Never got it fixed. Around that time I noticed a ball that hasn’t gone away till this day. Hasn’t grown any bigger. Also feels like it’s sitting on a lumpy platform. No pain. Just feels weird and hard. What could this be?

  • Getting braces on tomorrow should I reschedule?

    Best answer: It will be very difficult, if not impossible, to put your braces on if you are sneezing a lot.
    But the people who should decide are those who work in the office -- call them and ask.
