Please don't respond to this discussion. Instead, please read before you start your own new discussion to ask about your own oral health issues.

To start a new discussion, hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button on the upper right and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you want) and Submit.

Most importantly, please try and include the following information:

1. What do you think it is?

2. Has it been present for a long time and, if so, how long?

3. Pain - how severe, is it chronic, does it come and go, do you wake up from the pain, is it better in the morning or night. On a scale of one to ten with ten being the worst pain imaginable where are you?

4. Location - where is the problem, is it tooth, gum, bone, lips, cheek TMJ etc.

5. Size - How big is it

If you include the above information when you post your concerns, our experts will be better able to help you find the answers you need.
