Dr. Vinod K Joshi,
Once again, you are soooo helpful. What a blessing it is to have you available to the masses like this
i just got through with a round of dentistry/physical exam and it will be about 6 mos. until my next scheduled one. Would you consider it safe that if this thing stays "as is" at the end of the month to just keep an eye on it until then? Or should i hit the dentist sooner? Quite honestly, i am not that worried about it... the hypochondriac in me just gets riled up when i start sifting through Internet material to research. It doesn't help that i was a smokeless tobacco user for a number of years... that makes me all the more worried about every square millimeter of my mouth.
Thanks again for your help. i am in your debt.
