I had sealants put on my molars when my adult molars came in as a kid, and I am wondering if they are safe? I have heard that they contain BPA but I dont know if that gets into my body all these years later or what? Is it a large amount? Can they be removed?
My wisdom teeth apparently do not have enough room to come in (I am 21 and learned this from an x-ray, they are not giving me problems yet). One bottom one is wedged against the next molar underneath. The top ones are pointed back. Nothing really severe but I am just wondering if getting them removed is a good idea or necessary, dangerous, etc? Any experiences welcome.
Since I am 21 the Dr was concerned about my wisdom teeth and talked me into a panoramic x-ray of my mouth. When I did that, OMG I felt this horrible pressure around my head I cant even explain it. It felt like there was something there but there was not. Obvisouly it was the x-rays going straight into my freaking head! Wow, seriously I cant believe that is even legal. I could feel it the second she turned it on, and as soon as it was off. It was intense and I will never, EVER do it again. I have had a million of the "bite down on this" x-rays done of the sides of my mouth and never had that experience. So, anyone have similar experiences with this? I am sure it is really bad for you and probably causes tumors and all sorts of crap. I actually had no idea what it was until I was standing in front of it and she was telling me where to rest my chin. It really did give us a good look at my wisdom teeth but no way, never again.
