On average, children will start brushing on their own at about 6 years of age although there is significant variation . I recommend a slow transition, perhaps brushing your own teeth alongside your daughter, just to ensure they are doing a sufficiently thorough job.
Hope this helps!
All the best with your journey of diagnostic discovery!
Hope it works out mate, wishing you a speedy recovery
But just FYI, I advise my patients they can drink immediately after stitch removal provided they haven't had concurrent anaesthetic for another procedure.
All the best!
When you think about it, the alternative is to leave pus-forming bacteria inside your jawbone... I'd take the anaesthetic and root canal procedure every day of the week!
All the best, hope it works out really well!
All the best,
Hope you find some relief for the sensitivity, all the best.
Dry socket is an infection of the bone at the base of the socket from which a tooth is removed. It's always a risk following extraction of a tooth but is much more common in smokers than non-smokers. Symptoms of a dry socket are excruciating pain from the area, occasionally accompanied by a clear or yellow discharge from the socket.
Treatment is to return to the dentist for re-dressing of the wound and review, although pain from dry socket usually resolves itself within a week.
A number of reasons exist that could explain your sore gums. It may have simply been a deeper clean than you are used to, there may have been more buildup on the teeth than usual, or there may be an underlying condition that is causing the inflammation. I would recommend calling the dentist who completed the clean for you and advising them of this unexpected development and allow them to provide you with the support you require.
