Hi, I got my teeth cleaned yesterday and the dental assistant opened up the biohazard trash can with her hands with gloves on and she continued to touch the instruments I was going to use for my mouth. However I did tell the dentist and he told her to switch all the tools. If she hadn't switch the tools. Would I have contracted hiv

I am a 57 yo woman who lost my lower molar 2.5 years ago. I just got back from getting my teeth cleaned and the denist/surgeon says I should get a implant or pull the top tooth because it will continue to grow until it meets my bottom gum. A implant is over $4,000 and I don t want to pull my top molar. Help

what would cause a cluster of cavities in a month? I had my teeth cleaned a month ago and nothing was evident at all. Today I just got 8 fillings on my top teeth. I am a type 2 diabetic on an insulin pump and take an antidepressant and mood stabilizer. My dentist of 25 years really didn t have an explanation. I haven t had a blood test in a while...generally my Endocrinoligist does full blood screens along with my A-1C-no red flags I had a very slight upper respiratory issue after Christmas, but didn t last long. I know I am not supposed to do this but I had some Augmenten that was prescribed for me this summer for an abdominal cyst and it didn t work but I kept it and probably had 5- 7 days of pills and I took them until I ran out. Otherwise, I have not been seriously ill or started new long term meds. Any thoughts?

Hi . Im a 18 male. When I was 11, I got braces for four years. During the treatment, I had two premolar on my top side removed. When my treatment ended, accouple months later I noticed that i can only touch the left side of my teeth top and bottom. I took the initative to talk to an ortho about my teeth. i sowed him pictures and he said I have a bilateral posterior open bite. He did not say i need braces or what or what kind of appliances I ll need. I want to know if I need metal braces again. How long do you think it will be and what other appliances I need.
