While I'm not a dentist I've done this in the past and it does help.

My tongue doesn't really smell that bad.

If a tongue does stink it is a result of something going on elsewhere. Somebody's tongue doesn't just stink. I had a impacted wisdom teeth in the back of my jaw that made my tongue stink pretty bad. Once I removed that wisdom tooth the odour on my tongue decreased alot.

Rufus

Are you aware of tonsil stones? There are some pretty disgusting youtube clips of them.

Are tonsil stones a result of your teeth/dental hygiene?

I sometimes feel like I might have them but I have never coughed one up.

I have a rotten tooth that does not cause pain or bad odor, do I have to take it out now? or maybe get it drill and then fixed with that filling stuff (do not know how it is called in english, too lazy to find a dictionary and translate it)?
.

Also I have a wisdom that finally came out on the top left of my mouth, do I take it out or just wait?

Wrong. Your tongue is like a carpet and can harbor all kinds of bacteria and yeast colonies. Meticode is right here.

As a general rule it is never a good idea to have a necrotic tooth in your mouth even if it isn't causing any pain.

I can't answer specific questions because I don't have the information I need (exam and x-rays) to offer sound advice. I'm happy to answer general questions though.

Tonsil stones, like any other glandular calcifications (gall, kidney, salivary stones, etc) are most likely caused by excessive mineral intake in the diet, although this isn't really known for certain.

So when you do normal checkups do you tell people they have awesome teeth or what?

Your answer was not helpful at all, I'm disappointed.

is there an optimal time to floss - like right before bed or first thing in the morning before you brush?

Intuitively speaking, I'd say optimal times for flossing would be after every meal. Twice a day is best, but getting in at least one flossing session per day (any time) is the bare minimum.




Rufus, I went to the dentist for a deep gum cleaning.. they examined my mouth and found some spots to be severe problem areas (6 rating meaning onset of periodontis). After the deep cleaning, it seems like food is getting stuck in my teeth more easily. Is this normal? My teeth and gums are sore as hell as it is right now, and the food getting caught is annoying as hell.

Ahh. Yeah I had this a few weeks back. This one wisdom tooth has a flap of gum over it and it got infected. Needless to say, one of the worst pains ever. Very hard to eat. Don't have insurance right now so I toughed it out.

Default Re: Rufus, are you really a dentist?

I've got holes in my teeth I need filled but Rufus I was wondering if my dentist is any good, whenever I see him he pokes my gums with his hook tool so far that they bleed and hurt like a bitch. He then says this is normal and everything looks fine? Is he supposed to be being my gums like that? Do you do that too?
