Until 2007 when I first began taking medication to treat headaches caused from a brain tumor, did I have any major tooth problems. But in 2009 when I started having seizures and had to begin anti-convulsant medication, did I have problems with my teeth. Although, My dental care began at age 6 when my gums reseeded and braces were required, never pulled a tooth due to undisolved roots, various oral surgeries to pull teeth to there appriate places.

PAST HISTORY : brain tumor, seizures, generalized secondary epilepsy, deginterative disk disease, chronic arthritis, both knees,

If I am not mistaken you mean to say that there are over retained remnants of deciduous teeth. These have not exfoliated till now. You should get them removed. Anti Convulsants drugs are known to cause enlargement of gums, which causes pockets formation therefore they should be excised and you should be able to maintain good oral hygiene. Please visit a Periodontist

Medication used for seizures can cause gum overgrowth (gingival hyperplasia), but now a days with advent of Lasers, the treatment modality as improved saving time and is an absolutely painless procedure.

Although, I do not have much problem in eating my meals but since I googled and did some research, I want to know if it is possible to get permanent fixed teeth back in the empty spaces.

I hv been having problems of dizziness, and spinning sensations since last 4/5 days. Had the same earlier abt 2 yrs back but on a very mild scale and they went away without any medication. This time it has been rather acute. Visited the physician and hv been prescribed Vertin 8 mg 1x3 times a day before bkfst, lunch and dinner. After three days feeling better but the sensations are still there albeit milder. Feel the spinning sensation especially when I look straight up/down and then bring the head back to normal posn.Again when I am changing sides on bed while lying down from left to right rpt left to right I feel the same sensation. Tho' the dizziness and the spinning sensations are less now after taking the dosages of Vertin 8 last three days would u hv any advice as to how long it takes normally for the problems to be totally eliminated? I am particularly concerned as I am, tho' a retired person, a man of fairly active habits and for the various domestic chores often hv to drive quite a bit in heavy city traffic and as a result of this problem am completely grounded which is affecting our day-to-day life styles and needs.
