You should use a nocturnal bite plate (or bite splint) to prevent tooth damage.

I have an very itchy painfull tounge, inside of my cheeks and lips also, gums and the roof of my mouth. now the back of my throat is itchy and painfull cant eat and also looks like I have three white small...

There are a multitude of things that could be diagnosed for your symptoms such as canker stores, some type of trauma (biting the tongue, scalding it, grinding or clinching teeth), I do not want to scare you but you should seek medical attention. Symptoms like yours can be a oral thrush or even cancer. I am no doctor. I read your symptoms that you provided and went online to a site called Web MD. You may find it kinda beneficial to read some of the things that I read on that particular site. I hope this helps

How to clean a hard mouth guard

For the last few years, dentists have been recommending the use of hard mouth guards to more and more people to treat a variety of difference issues. Mouth guards can be used to ward off TMJ, to curb tooth filing from grinding and even as a replacement for retainers. Hard mouth guards are said to be better than soft ones as they are more ergonomic for your jaw, are longer lasting because they can't be ground down and are less likely to harbor nasty bacteria. Despite the many benefits of soft hard mouth guards, they can be a real doozy to clean.

I know that I personally hated using a soft mouth guard for many years. This is not because it was uncomfortable. It was because I couldn't stand the nightly cleaning regiment and always felt that despite my best efforts, it was left with a foul taste and smell and so I always worried it was loaded with nasty bacteria. Plus, I would grind my teeth so much that I would have to go to the dentist to have a new one fitted at least twice a year.

My favorite part about my new hard mouth guard is that the cleaning process is effortless. All I need to do is buy dissolving denture cleaners. About five minutes before I go to bed, I drop a tablet of Polident or Eferdent into a glass of water containing my mouth guard. If you sit and watch, you can literally see all the grime being pulled off. After the tablet has completely dissolved, I let the mouth guard rest for a minute in the blue solution and then quickly wash it off under running water. Now I can go to bed feeling that my mouth guard is clean, my breath is fresh and my teeth and jaw are protected from nocturnal grinding.

Does anybody make cushion motor mounts for a 2010 yamaha v star 650 vibrates ya teeth out at 70 mph

No, it's the nature of the beast. Such an awesome bike but the motor is a hair shy on size and winds pretty high at 70. Get yourself some good padded after market handle bar grips, a better seat, and wear a mouth guard.
Were 2010's belt driven or shaft drive? If it's belt you could change the rear pulley and bring the rpms down a good 500 rpm which helps a lot, if it's shaft drive you're out of luck, you can't change the gearing ratio

What is the best mouth guard

There are numerous types of mouth guards that you can choose from. The best type is the custom made mouth guards that you get at the dentist office. However, they are more expensive. If you want a less expensive mouth guard, I'd go with the boil and bite mouth guards because they adjust to your teeth very well. You can read more information about mouth guards on this website:

How to whiten my keyboard

All of the teeth whitening machines, flosses, rinses, pastes and surgeries crowd out another, less invasive option for making your teeth look whiter---Adobe Photoshop Elements. While you won't find Elements on the pharmacy aisle or offered as part of your dentist's menu of services, you can take advantage of Elements' tools to edit your own photographs. Correct a lifetime of coffee and red wine indulgence or try out a brighter smile before committing to an actual whitening program by editing your grin in Elements.
1.Start Photoshop Elements. Click the "File" menu. Click "Open." Browse to the picture of your teeth to whiten and double-click the file name.
2.Press the "Ctrl" and "+" keys together to zoom in so you can see your entire mouth on the canvas.
3.Click the "Lasso" tool on the "Tools" column on the left side of the screen.
4.Draw an outline around your teeth. If your mouth is open with your jaws separated, draw the outline around just your top teeth. Try to avoid as much gumline, lips and ****** as possible. Blinking lines surround your teeth.
5.Click the "Image" menu. Click "Adjustments." Click "Levels" from the fly-out menu.
6.Slide the white slider under "Input Levels" slowly to the left. If you can't see your teeth, drag the "Levels" window to the side so you can see the
window's work in real time. Watch as your teeth---or the top row---become lighter. Note the number under the white slider triangle's box and click the "OK" window.
7.Repeat the "Lasso" process to encircle the lower teeth if the photo necessitates it. Reopen the "Levels" window and type that number into the white triangle slider's box to get the two rows of teeth the exact same shade of white. Click the "OK" button to return to the newly brightened-teeth canvas.

Grinding when starting, replaced starter one month ago engages well sometimes, but now will not engage flywheel could the flywheel teeth be worn or broken?

The flywheel is worn in that specific area. Engines tend to stop in the same one or two positions, and it is those teeth that get cachunked every time you turn the key. This is ok if the bendix does a good job of threading the gear into the flywheel teeth, but the problem is that now that the teeth are half worn away, the starter attempts to mount its gear to the teeth, but before the gear is fully seated, the contacts in the motor make, the motor starts to turn, and the not-yet-seated gear bounces off of the flywheel teeth. This is what causes the teeth-grinding sound (your teeth grinding in your mouth too!) when you turn the key. . There are two solutions: The first is to, of course, replace the ring gear. . The second is hard to explain, but a good starter rebuild center (if there is such an accessible animal around anymore) will know what I'm talking about: The starter gear must have the lagging edge of each tooth ground so that each tooth will look like a chisel. The "pushing" side of each tooth must be straight and come to the point (and not be beveled). The "non-pushing" lagging side of each starter tooth should have the bevel ground in on that side. This grinding is done easily by a small angle grinder or a Dremel Tool with a cutoff wheel. . This does one thing: It assures that the gear will "spin in" without bouncing. If ground correctly (it's not hard to do), you will get successful starts every time. This is a common fix for Toyota 4-cyl with this horrible all-too-common problem. Good luck.
