I have had a great time moderating the Oral Health Community with the extremely insightful Dr. Kaufman and, of course, you amazing members! Changes are good though and create healthy growing environments, so I am more than excited to introduce you all to your newest moderator, Andie!
She is one of my dearest friends, so I KNOW that you are all in good hands and will not only find assistance and helpful tips, but also have fun!
Please take a moment to welcome Andie to the community.
Thank you for everything and keep those beautiful smiles! AmeliaView Thread
Your plan is the best! Only a physical examination is going to tell you where the pain is truly stemming from. I hope that you keep the community posted on how things go and that the pain leaves quick! Take care of yourself. View Thread
I'm so sorry to hear this and think that your best bet now would be to speak with a dermatologist about skin discoloration and various forms of treatment. You might also want to post your question in the WebMD Skin Problems & Treatments Community and/or the WebMD Skin & Beauty Community . Both of these communities also have experts who may be able to give you some more insight.
Swank is correct that WebMD does not allow members to post about personal physicians' information, names, etc. for a number of reasons (privacy, advertising, and the list goes on). However, we DO HAVE an excellent WebMD Physician Directory Toolthat lets you search for and find different specialized physicians in your area. If you ever want to use this tool click on the hyperlink above OR below our search engine, where is says doctors....just click on doctors and there you have it!
I am wishing you the very best! Take care and let us know how you are doing. View Thread
I hope that you are feeling better now! I don't see any correlation with bacterial vaginosis and mouth/throat pain from the WebMD Bacterial Vaginosis Overview . Please let us know how you are doing and if you are in any pain, please don't hesitate to call your doctor! Your health and comfort are worth it! Take care. View Thread
Do you know how much fluoride is in your drinking water? How much should you and your family be getting? No need for panic, but you might just want to reevaluate.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have recommended this year that the level of fluoride in U.S. drinking water supplies should be lowered to prevent dental problems. "The HHS is recommending that water supplies contain 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water, replacing the current recommended range of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams."
While fluoride helps to fight tooth decay, "excess fluoride consumption during the tooth -forming years in children age 8 and younger may lead to dental fluorosis, a condition in which teeth can become streaked or spotty due to excess fluoride."
I'm so sorry that you are experiencing this pain and hope that you feel better soon! What does your dentist say about this pain? It might be a good idea to have an examination if you are having this pain. Possibly they are coming in, but not enough to break through the gums at this time.
