Just got all 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed. There is a small open hole does this mean there is not a blood clot and that ill get dry socket?

Not neccesarily.  It takes a few weeks for your body to close off the hole your tooth used to be in.  Just be sure no to smoke or use tobacco, and see your dentist if you have any concerns.

my grand baby is 7 months old and her 1st.two bottom teeth came in normal. The bottom ones the not the front teeth came in the next ones came in....

It is hard to tell without seeing the child.  It sounds like there should not be a problem, however, I would advise seeing a dentist to properly evaluate the situation.

if i had a tooth pulled this morning when the office opened would i be able to go to work at 7 pm

It depends how difficult the extraction is.  Many times patients are fine to do so.

I have heard they can put magnets on Dentures/partials to hold in place how true is that so a person doesn't have to use paste or glues to hold...

It is hard to tell the specific condition.  Your sister needs to see a dentist ASAP.

It sounds like you may need a root canal due to the infected or abscessed tooth.  You can find more information about this on, and get linked with a dentist to provide the care!

I am 55, why are my teeth shifting?

Our teeth contiually move slightly.  Keeping your regular dental cleaning visits will keep your gums and bone healthy to minimize movement.

My tooth has been deteriorating quite awhile now. I just felt something move, pushed it without much force & it broke off at the gum line. I know...

It has to do with the different colors of the root, the nerve of the tooth, and the gums shining through.  Be sure to get to your dentist ASAP.
