Pre-op antibiotics, yay or nay?

I'm getting all four of my impacted wisdom teeth out tomorrow. In a study done in 2007, one dose of pre-op antibiotics has been shown to lower infection rates by 50%, and might do more good than several days of antibiotics post-op. My oral surgeon's office apparently does not follow that practice. Is there any danger in me taking one of the doses of amoxicillin that has already been prescribed for this procedure the night before? [more inside]

Grinding My teeth

I'm tired of having big horsy teeth. So I was going to do a Tom Cruise. How much is it going to cost me to have my front teeth ground down?

The worst part about this is that dentists in my experience never give quotes over the phone so I'd have to choose one place and that's it. What kind of office should I look for the best prices (Montreal if that helps).

I'm not crazy but where could I get a file so that I could do it myself?
