- I have purchased 100ml of 2% chlorhexidine solution. I will try to irrigate my gums with it using a irrigator (mild pressure syringe). This is supposed to be used to clean after a root canal surgery. Other mouth wash are about 0.1%, Is it safe to irrigate gum pockets with 2%? Do I need to dilute it? If so, how?
- I have a bad problem with my teeth due to bad genetics. Ever since I got my wisdom teeth my mouth has been falling apart and looks like I\’ve never brushed my teeth.

- I have an receded upper jaw , it\’s called maxillary osteotomy. I was told at 21 i need a Jaw surgery to fix it . I\’m 26 today. My insurance wont pay for the surgery. I\’ve been to embarrassed to be social, as a result I\’ve become a home body. I\’ve been working with dentist who told me he could move my fused jaw forward . After 4 years and 10000 dollars later, my jaw is still receded and my top teeth are flared out. Which has only cause more depression. I feel robbed, that a side. I\’m now wondering if there is a denture that would fit over the real teeth with an upper jaw piece to fill out my face. maybe even a denture implant. do denture like that exist, where no real teeth are missing. I\’m ready to go back to school , find a relationship and get my life started.
