Dr. Gary David Sabbadini D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
  • What happens if your brace breaks?

    You are probably fine in the short term but the tooth may start to move back to its original position. You should call your doctor's office for direction READ MORE

  • Can children use a Waterpik?

    Yes, children can use a Waterpik. I typically only recommend oral irrigating devices such as a Waterpik when the patient has appliances in their mouth that may be difficult to clean with a toothbrush and floss. In my opinion, floss is still the gold standard for removing plaque in between the teeth. Gary D. Sabbadini, DDS READ MORE

  • My daughter has all of her baby teeth in. What should I bring her to dentist?

    The recommendation by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics is for a child to have their first dental visit by their first birthday or the eruption of their first baby tooth (whichever comes first). READ MORE

  • How can I make the process of losing teeth easier for my son?

    Let him know that this is a normal process that everyone has gone through when they were children. You might also want to mention that the tooth fairy may visit him after he loses his teeth! READ MORE

  • Do kids with lactose intolerance have weak teeth?

    If your child has no calcium in his diet, the teeth can be affected as calcium is one of the minerals that make up teeth. You can give him non-dairy foods and beverages that have calcium: Calcium-fortified soy, almond and rice beverages Calcium-fortified orange juice Vegetables such as bok choy, broccoli, rapini and kale Canned fish with bones such as salmon, sardines and anchovies Soybean-based foods such as edamame, soy nuts and tofu Beans like chickpeas, kidney beans, white, navy and pinto beans Nuts and seeds like almonds and sesame seed READ MORE

  • What are the chances that the spaces in my daughter's teeth will recur when her permanent teeth grow in?

    It really depends upon how much space she has between the baby teeth and the size of her permanent teeth. Generally, spacing between the baby teeth is a good thing because the permanent teeth are larger and this lessens the chance that there will be crowding when they erupt. READ MORE

  • When should a child start brushing his own teeth?

    Your child can start brushing his own teeth when he has the manual dexterity (for example, when he is able to tie his shoe laces without them coming untied) and when he has the inclination (college?). If/when they are brushing their own teeth, it is advisable to at least check and see how well they are doing. Good luck! READ MORE

  • Can calcium deficiency impact teeth?

    Calcium is most important for unerupted, developing teeth as calcium is one of the minerals that make up the tooth. If he is unable to drink milk, you may want to give him calcium supplements to ensure that his teeth form properly. READ MORE

  • The dentist has recommended my son’s tooth extraction. Is it the right way to go?

    Good afternoon. The answer to your question depends upon the extent of the tooth decay. If there is not enough tooth structure remaining to restore the tooth, extraction may be the only option. However, if there is enough tooth structure remaining (and your son is cooperative enough to allow the treatment to be completed), the teeth may be able to be restored with composite resin or with a crown. If you are unsure of what to do, it may be worthwhile to get another opinion. Best of luck! Gary D. Sabbadini, DDS READ MORE
