This is a dental question, but I cant reach my dentist .is there a place on the web to ask a dental question? 1st, I will ask you..I had root canal Monday, then I had a flareup Thursday...pain.I am taking an antibiotic and pain pills. I now have some pain, and Ilooked at my gums over ths upper tooth, and the gums are bulging out, pink, and ahve a grey streak.I called my dentist, but have not heard from him, so I am asking your advice Sandra Okinow***@******.***

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any swelling? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?

My gums were bleeding, and my cheek is somewhat swollen..not bleeding now, instead are bulging out like I had said,etc.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, nothing unusual

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
