Go to the Dentist

Seriously what's wrong with you people

scared yeh I know the feeling
on one occasion i ran from the dentists

my dad saw the dentist my mother chasing me down the road so he came hot on their heels chasing me in the car

but common how much pain is it really
ten secs with the injection
pain gone

then its just uncomfortable while they fiddle around in your mouth

but you see people going weeks and months some for years (like my sister) with toothache and in the end a 30-40 min experience and its all over

just pick up the phone call the dentist and its all over in under 1 hour

you will thank me as soon as you been to the dentist

It is so sad that dental care is so expensive.My friend was told it would cost a lot to have tooth pulled she was

pretty ticked she researched and

drove to San Diego a cab driver took across to Mexico and she arrived to the this dentist clinic it was packed with you got it Americans!!!

She talked to lots of people that could not afford care so they came here, some could afford care but refused to pay inflated prices for dental.

It is an options...medical tourism is here. I used to be a social worker and we used to send people to an emergency clinic where different dentist volunteered monthly and they would do the dental work for free. Also there were free dental clinic in the city I think a couple times a year where several dentist would donate time and help people . Lastly call the dentist office and most dentists will take payments and/or call the county or city line for referral . Do not just keep suffering there is help out there

Not all dentists can get you in during emergency situations like these. Even if you don't have dental insurance and can pay cash....we are STILL at the mercy of the dentists schedule....are you a moron??!!

If dentist wouldn't try to pay off their porches with 2 root canals maybe I would go more. No really wanting to finance his wife's next boob job either

Had an infection with a swollen cheek for a few days. I did the following to get rid of the swelling:

Glossed after or before rinsing with the following solutions:

Hydrogen peroxide (several times)

Baking soda (handful of times)

Garlic ( many times)

Olive oil ( handful of times)

Salt and water (many times)

Also, ate potatoes, vitamin C supplements, clove leaves, salmon, and broccoli, as well as spoonfuls of garlic.

Iced cheek for a night, slept or rested for the weekend , drank water, and did have a few ibuprofen. The start of Swelling on Fridays was gone by Monday.

Try massaging gums and squeezing them around the abcess. Yes I know may hurt like hell at first but relieves pain at least for me it did.hydrogen peroxide too.

HPM,Dr.Lepinoza

Excuse my abrupt comment,i only have a short JUST IN CASE,I only recommend that if by chance the abcess at any point becomes tender enough that it begins to leak, at that time medical attention will be necessary for drainage,butif facilities arent in hands reach the best and safest method would simply be to have one teaspoon of salt, one teaspoon of turmeric, and a glass of lukewarm water,preferably filtered to minimize chance of infection occouring.if you don't have turmeric powder at hand mouthwash at a low amount mixed with 1/3 water will suffice..PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING DRAINAGE OR MINOR LEAKAGE OCCURING THAT NONE OF THE PUSS BE SWALLOWED OR INGESTED,AT THIS POINT IS MAY HAVE HARMFUL BACTERIUM OR MRCA,SO ITS BEST TO SPIT OR DRAIN INTO A SINK OR RECEPTICLE..WITH A DAMP PAPER TOWEL BEGIN FROM THR BOTTOM OF YOUR GUMLINE SLOWLY WORKING YOUR WAY UP WILL OPTIMIZE FASTER DRAINAGE, REPEAT THIS PRCOESS,UNTIL YOU FEEL ALL OF THE ABCESS HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM THE GUM AREA,AFTER GRAB A PIECE OF COTTON THAT IS NOT WET AND PLACE IT ON THE ABCESS FOR ANY LEFT OVER DRAINAGE TO ABSORB INTO THE DRY COTTON BALL, IF AT A HOSPITAL A SIMILARPROCEDURE WOULD OCCOUR BUT A SCALPEL WILL BE ABLE TO REMOVE ALL OF THE SKIN SURROUNDING THE INFECTED ABCESS TO I

EFFICIENTLY REMOVE ALL OF THE PUSS THAT REMAINS IN THE CAVITY ,THEY MOST WOULD SET YOU UP ON AN ANTIBIOTIC IV DRIPLINE,SUCH AS BACTRIM OR AMOXICILLIN..AT HOME WE WILL BE USING THE SALT TO GARGLE TO PULL ANY COAGULATION THAT MAY HAVE OCCURRED INSIDE THE ABCESS,AND SALT WILL ALSO LESSEN INFLAMMATION AND KILLS GERMS AS WELL..AFTER THIS IS DONE GRAB ANOTHER COTTON BALL AND RE APPLY IT TO THE NOW DRAINED ABCESS TO ABSORB ANY LOOSENED COAGULATION FROM INSIDE THE REMAINING LAYERS OF ABCESS SKIN..ONCE 1 OR 2 MIN HAVE PASSED,BRACE YOURSELF BECAUSE THIS NEXT RINSE IS FOR THE WHOLE SHABANG, ...OK SO GARGLE THE MOUTHWASH FOR ATLEAST 1 MIN TO KILL ANY REMAINING GERMS AND TO PREVENT INFECTION FROM OCCOURING..AFTER EVERYTHING HAS BEEN COMPLETED CALL YOUR DOCTOR TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE EXPLAINING YOUR SITUATION,USUALLY THEY WILL GIVE YOU AUGMENTIN FOR A 7 TO 12 DAY COURSE..TIL THEN AVOID ANY SPICY FOODS OR ORAL TOBACCO USAGE IF APPLICABLE. THANK YOU FOR LETTING DR.LEPINOZA WALK YOU THROUGH THE AT HOME PROCEDURE,I RECOMMEND THAT SHARP KNIVES OR CUTTING INSTRUMENTS BE LEFT FOR THE HOSPITALS,IVE SEEN MANY PATIENTS COME IN HAVING DONE DRAINAGE OF ABCESSES AT HOME USING THIER OWN TOOLS,LEADING THEM INTO INFEECTION,WHICH CAN BE LIFE THREATENING IF LEFT UNTREATED DUE TO THE CLOSE CONNECTION BETWEEN NERVES,VIENS,AND ARTERIES THAT PASS THRU AND AROUND THESE SOFT AND UNPROTECTED AREAS OF THE MOUTH..SO UNLESS YOU HAVE UNDERGONE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING TO REMOVE OR DRAIN AN ABCESS,THEN PLEASE LEAVE IT TO US...WELL GIVE YOU A LOLIPOP AFTERWARDS FOR BEING A GOOD SPORT TOO..
