What treatment is usual for cuboid avulsion fracture when the avulsion is seperated from the bone?

I was diagnosed today with a cuboid avulsion fracture of the left foot. The doctor showed me the x-ray and explained what an avulsion was. He also said non weight bearing for two weeks with crutches and referred me to my regular physician. He stated my regular physician may recommend an orthopedic consultation. When I looked at the x-ray the portion of bone was definitely seperated from the cuboid bone. Some of the literature I have read online indicates surgery and then others say walking cast, which is it?
Additionally, he referred to it as a "nutcracker" fracture. Frankly, I'm hurting.

If it is a true avulsion fracture, a podiatric surgeon would normally remove the loose bone surgically and basically that will fix the "avulsion". You probably will be non weight bearing in a cast for a period of time to allow the bone to heal. A lot, of course, depends on your x-rays. I would absolutely recommend a visit to a podiatrist ASAP. He/She can determine the severity of the fracture and proper treatment. Good luck!  (+ info)

Can a tooth adjacent to a severely decaying tooth move over to fill the empty space?

Could a tooth next to a severly decaying tooth that is already chipping move over to fill the space that the decaying tooth is not occupying anymore?
24>23, you are a douchebag for posting your question on one of mine. Go die of aids.

Also Michael Jordan is the best player to ever play the game of basketball. So there.

Short answer no. Over many years the adjacent teeth will shift slightly and close off the gap a little, but there's no way they'd move so much to close the gap completely. I had to have a molar taken it 15 years ago for the same reason. After time you dont even realise it's gone.

If I could have afforded a bridge at the time I would have got one. I can now afford to have just about any dental procedure going but my dentist tells me my teeth are in "tip top" condition. Ironic.  (+ info)

Why does my tooth that I had a root canal on suddenly start hurting?

I got a root canal a couple months ago and everything was fine. It didn't hurt at all and they told me to take good care of my teeth because that tooth is more brittle or something. Well, I brush my teeth twice a day and floss once a day. But suddenly, as of yesterday, my tooth started hurting every time I bite down on it. If I don't, there's just this dull ache. Any idea what happened?

Please Go back to your dentist. Either it was irritated because after your treatment you might happen to accidentally bite something that irritate the tooth or there might still something that was there that needs to be re-open and re-treated.

I urged you to go back to your dentist and talk to him/her if he /she prescribe pain reliever still describe him/her the pain and ask that if there will be a need to re-open and re-treat what possibility this might happen and why. take care.  (+ info)

Is it normal for other teeth or tooth to be sensative after a tooth filling or crown?

At the moment one of my top back Wisdom tooth/teeth are sensative after my front Molar was scrapped and filled in order for a crown to be put in next week. Is it possible for the other tooth or teeth to feel sensative even if they are three or four teeth apart? if so why does that happen, because nerves are connected or something or should only the tooth/teeth right next to the one being worked on feel sensative & not the one few teeth apart. Thanks.

yes your gums and teeth need to heal, everything will be fine!  (+ info)

How much does it cost and what metods are available for tooth replacement?

I have a missing permanent tooth (from genetics). Its the tooth 1 place from the first 2 main largest front teeth. Beside that tooth (on the side that isint missing) is a triangular tooth. However, on the other side, my third tooth is missing, and my triangular tooth is in its place, therefore beside my two large teeth. I was wondering what options I have in adding my "should be" tooth in its place and how much is would cost?

There is a procedure called dental implants available now. They drill a post into your jawbone. They then let this set and allow it to heal. After about 3 months they put a tooth on it, which for the most part lasts for life. It looks real and you don't have to worry about it falling out or anything.

The problem is, however, that this method is pretty expensive. Call around to cosmetic dentists in the area and see if anyone offers free consultations.  (+ info)

How can i whiten my teeth if I have a fake tooth?

I want to whiten my teeth but I have a fake tooth. I'm not interested in whitening my fake tooth. What I was thinking is once they give me my permanent fake tooth, I could get it a shade or two lighter than my other teeth, that way I could whiten my other teeth to the shade my fake tooth is. Is that a stupid idea? I've struggled with all of this stupid teeth problems, and i would love for something to turn in my favor.

Please help, suggestions or anything! Thank you!

No you are right on.. When I got my crown my dentist asked me if I wanted it lighter then my other teeth by a few shades. Since she knew that I was also wanting to whiten my teeth. If I got it the same color as my teeth were then, I would have had one dark tooth after I had whiten the rest of my teeth. So speak to your dentist about getting the right shade for you, since you do want to whiten the rest of your real teeth.

I hope this has helped

How do you know when your molar tooth is dying?

Pain in my upper last molar tooth, so unsure if it's dying or not? If tooth is dying does it pay to get a root canal plus crown on it, or have it extracted ? What are the chances of having to do an extraction if root canal and crown are done? Can a molar tooth be ok with a root canal and crown, or will it have to be removed anyway? What happens to the other teeth if a molar tooth is removed?

It is a bad sign and a sign of expenses and grief to come.

You need to get it checked at a dentist. None of us on Yahoo can see it from here.

If the tooth is valuable (easy to see in your smile and a big molar necessary for chewing) you should do your best to save it. That includes root canal and crown. Unless the root canal is done by a poor dentist who cracks the tooth it is likely the tooth will be perfect after that work.

If you ignore it you will be in more and more pain as it rots away waiting for the extraction. If the tooth is extracted the bone will tend to diminish near it and the adjacent ones will start to loosen.  (+ info)

What does it mean if the tooth is said to have lost part of its bone?

How can one tell if a tooth has lost some of its bone??? From its gum? Or any other symptons?
For what reason would the tooth lost its bone? How can this be improved? Is it possible for the tooth to undergo root canal treatment later?
There is no decay or cavity on the tooth and it is not shaking. A little waggy or pain sometime. Can this be improved through brushing?
Anyone who know or have this knowledge, please kindly advise.
Thank you very much.
