Mimi here again, thanks for your good work on here. I hope that you are well. I am worried though as i haven't read any response from you on the 6th of August. My question is: my wisdom tooth on the right low jaw is paining and i am not sure if i should be worried or i should get to see a dentist. I know that its normal for the wisdom tooth to hurt. I am Hiv postive. Cd4 527, Vl undetectable. Never been on meds. 28 year old female. Many hugs, Mimi

Believe it or not, I do have a life and other responsibilities other than these forums. Consequently there may well be days or weeks when I am unavailable to respond to questions. Don't worry. If I'm abducted by Bush/Cheney, I'll have the site managers post a notice advising questioners to forward their questions to me via snail mail at Guantanamo Bay, OK?
If your teeth hurt, yes, a dentist is the correct person to see. Sure, a proctologist might be willing, but he would probably take the long route to get to your problem.
Keep smiling. Stay well.
