Upper wisdom teeth can erupt later in life than our teen years. If a tooth in front of an unerupted is lost sometimes this triggers the wisdom tooth to start moving downward and forward. This may or not result in a replacement for the missing tooth in front of that wisdom tooth. If this happens to you, see your dentist for guidance as to what treatment is needed. For the discomfort, use warm salt water rinses several times a day and take an over the counter pain medicine such as aspirin or Ibuprofen appropriate for your system and not more than recommended doses. Avoid over use of teething lotions as their effect is short lived. Ice packs and chewing on cold baby teething rings sometimes helps as well. DrP

I found an anonymous quote recently that I wanted to pass along. "Exercise is the most potent and under utilized antidepressant". In my medical readings, I have seen evidence that antidepressants as medications as not as effective as prescribers would like. I have also seen numerous studies liking increased endorphin production from even light excercise to physical pain relief and increased range of motion for most folks. Finally, I believe we feel better about ourselves as we notice small changes and benefits from exercising and improvements in our diet. Nike has another appropriate quote "Just do it!" And, yes, I have been taking my own advice at Pennock Hospital's Health and Wellness Center.
