I love how everyone says that your body growing things is impossible!!! I would love to see your facts on this!!! The only reason everyone say that is because we dont know how yet what do you think happened when you were conceived your entire body was grown!!! all on its own inside your mom. It is possible to regrow anything on you just figuring out how to make it happen

had bumpy things very painful coming from gums, Bought a bottle of Listerine on the suggestion of a pharmacist. Bad tooth was painful and nothing seemed to dull pain. Rinsed my mouth out several times all day long for a minute. Little infectious bumps began to twitch and then disappeared then my jaw swelled big with fluid. Im not an expert on this field
