Wisdom teeth?

Schedule an appointment to see your dentist. He or she will give you a referral to an oral surgeon. Most likely the wisdom teeth will need to be extracted.

How do you get rid of geographic tongue?

No, this is normal. You don’t need to do anything about it.

How bad is a cavity if it hurts?

Most likely the caries lesion has reached the pulp (where the nerve resides) and will need a root canal therapy.

How often must I replace my teeth crowns?

There is no need to replace crowns, unless something is wrong. So it is very important to do yearly dental exams with your dentist.

My tooth infection keeps coming back. Can it signify something more serious?

Depends on where the infection is. Is it in the bone, in the gum or in the pulp of the tooth?

At what age can my little one start brushing her teeth on her own?

She can start brushing. You might want to check if she is doing good with it. Kids need to be instructed by adults, but should be able to brush on their own.

Why am I so exhausted after removal of infected root canal molar?

If you have been taking antibiotics and the area does not look swollen, then you do not have an infection.

I had some bleeding in my gums while brushing. Could it be serious?

There could be multiple reasons. Hormonal changes, not flossing properly are common. Getting a professional cleaning at your dental office is important.

My gum hurts where my wisdom tooth was taken out. Is this normal?

In most cases yes. You might decide to schedule a check up appointment with your dentist.

I just got a crown fit on my teeth but it hurts a lot. Does it require re-treatment?

You need to schedule an appointment to see your dentist. The problem could be occlusion ( the bite) or it could be pulpitis ( inflammation of the pulp in that tooth)

I had my wisdom tooth removed yesterday. When can I start eating solid food again?

I would stay on soft diet for 3-5 days. After the post operative check, if all is well, you may start regular diet.
