  • What is the difference between a cleaning and a deep cleaning at the dentist?

    A "Cleaning" typically refers to a Preventive Cleaning for patients who have no presence of periodontal disease, and is to prevent disease from occurring due to areas not properly cleaned by the patient through daily care. A "Deep Cleaning" refers to Scaling and Root Planing which is indicated in the presence of bone loss associated with Periodontal Disease. Progressive bone loss is due to the body responding to bacteria residing within the pockets around your teeth that are too deep for you to cleanse on your own. READ MORE

  • What helps with pain after a teeth cleaning?

    Typically, there is not pain after a cleaning, unless you have had Root Planing for Periodontal Disease. Pain can be from mild tissue trauma or can result from exposed root surfaces, previously covered by Calculus (Tartar). For gum sensitivity, Ibuprophen would help. For root surfaces, use Sensodyne toothpaste for sensitive teeth until sensitivity disipates. READ MORE

  • What happens if antibiotics don't work for a tooth infection?

    Sometimes a dental infection can be a Penecillin resistant bacteria. Amoxicillin is often used to treat an acute dental infection. It takes about 24 hours for an antibiotic to start working and another 24 hours to begin feeling relief. If it persists it is best to reach the doctor who prescribed the antibiotic to consider a different, broader spectrum antibiotic. If facial swelling occurs, especially up under the eye, it is critical to seek immediate care, and if your dentist is unavailable, to visit ER. READ MORE

  • Why would a root canal tooth hurt?

    If you are referring to pain after having a root canal procedure done, it can be from an untreated acute infection, which should be treated with antibiotic. Another source can be the filling or crown left too high in the bite. This would be characterized by pain to bite or grind around on the tooth, without food in your mouth. This must be adjusted by your dentist or it will continue to get worse. READ MORE

  • How do you clean your teeth while having braces?

    I hope your orthodontist would give you personal instruction for care of your teeth after getting your braces on. It is much more difficult to clean around orthodontic brackets and wires and very important to do so, or permeant damage can occur to the enamel of your teeth resulting in white lesions or decay of the tooth structure, requiring fillings to correct. Brushing has to be done individually, in small circles to clean around the brackets and wires. Flossing requires the use of flossing aids, such as floss threaders, SuperFloss or Gum Chucks. Please ask your orthodontist office for care instructions READ MORE

  • Can I do a deep cleaning on my teeth with orthodontics?

    Deep cleanings are indicated when bone loss has occurred due to periodontal disease. Periodontal Disease should be addressed before getting orthodontics. Movement of teeth in the presence of untreated periodontal disease can actually induce further bone loss. Once the periodontal disease is addressed it is safe to progress with orthodontics, but maintenance cleanings should be done every 3-4 months to prevent recurrence of acute periodontal disease. READ MORE

  • Do you need antibiotics after a deep cleaning?

    Only if you are recommended to by your physician for mitral valve prolapse or occasionally for artificial joints READ MORE

  • Will a deep cleaning stop gum disease?

    It will help prevent further bone loss associated with Periodontal Disease, but must be followed with maintenance cleanings, typically every 3-4 months when Periodontal Disease related deep pocketing is present due to bone loss. READ MORE

  • Does a tooth removal require anesthesia?

    Yes, unless you like pain. :) READ MORE

  • Does lemon kill bacteria in the mouth?

    No. It will cause progressive erosion of the enamel of your teeth if used regularly. READ MORE
