• Is it OK to smell toothpaste?

    I smelled toothpaste on a toilet paper for a few seconds after picking up as it dropped. Is it OK to do so? Is it dangerous? Will there be any side effects? Does smelling it makes our body absorb it somehow? I heard swallowing is dangerous but not sure about smelling.

  • How to fix missing teeth?

    I’m missing a couple teeth (I was born without them) and there’s a gap between my teeth and a smaller one between my bottom front teeth as well. Can the dentist use braces to pull the other teeth together and hide the gaps so my mouth looks less weird?

  • If I go to a dentist to get tartar removed will I be made fun of?

    Best answer: I think quite the opposite. I think the dentist will be delighted that you are now wanting to take better care of your teeth and will gladly help you get back on track.
