A. welcome to my life! every time the air get's a little dry i get 1-3 aphthae and can't eat for the next 4-6 days. so i investigated a little, and i'm sorry but right now no one really knows what causes them. they know that from some reason the body get's an immune reaction in the oral mucosa and that causes an ulcer. but a friend of mine went to an Ayurveda therapist that told him to stop eating tomatoes and eggplants (in any way, cooked,baked,fried) and he says he stop getting aphthae. so you might try Ayurveda for prevention. it could help...

Q. What are the effects of alcoholism on the oral cavity? I have to make a presentation on this topic, and I would like to know what are the main pathological effects of chronic alcoholism on the oral cavity, I know that it is a carcinogen, but it mainly acts as a promoter, is there any cancer that is caused by alcohol abuse?

A. alcohol can interact harmfully with several medications commonly used in dental treatment. Alcohol intensifies the depressant effect of barbituates and tranquilizers creating a higher risk of deep sedation and unconsciousness. Following treatment, the ability to drive may be impaired. Medications used to control high blood pressure and angina have a dilating effect on the blood vessels which is intensified by alcohol.

The result is a higher likelihood of low blood pressure and fainting. Even the action of aspirin is intensified by alcohol, causing excessive bleeding by disrupting clot formation

Q. is it normal to be addiected to oral sex men eating me out

A. in an experiment they did on mice, they inserted an electrode to the pleasure area in the mouse's brain and every time he hit a certain pedal- it sent an electrical charge and aroused the pleasure area in the brain.
the mouse didn't care about food, females and nothing else. he just continued to push the pedal like crazy until he died.
we are addicted to pleasure too. what ever arouses your pleasure areas in the brain.
