Dr. James P. Economos, DDS's Expert Contributions
Of course. James P. Economos, DDS READ MORE
If it's not a wisdom tooth (third molar), you should NOT extract it unless it's fractured and cannot be saved. As far as pain's concerned, if done properly, there should not be too much discomfort. Another service we offer is placing collagen or a bone graft material which fills in the socket area and reduces what's known as a dry socket. But consider having a root canal procedure vs. extraction if able. READ MORE
Yes you should. Pain can go away, but that does not mean the problem is gone. If the nerve "dies" the nerve tissue will decay an may cause an infection later on. READ MORE
Generally soft foods for a while. The tissue needs to return to a normal state which takes a few days/week. READ MORE
Zirconia or Bruxir for natural looking teeth, or gold for areas where aesthetics is not concerned. READ MORE
Yes indeed for many reasons. If one can not properly keep the area clean, problems can occur. Decay can set in, causing the nerve to be painful or there may be pressure from an abscess, etc. READ MORE
Have root canal treatment done. READ MORE
Anything hard or durable in terms of not chewing with a lot of force, hard chips, etc and try to avoid spicy foods. READ MORE
Yes, but it depends on the level of anesthesia. Anything IV or general needs to be monitored. Local, only to make sure people don't hurt themselves during or after the appointment due to not feeling things normally. READ MORE
That is a bit early, but some are early bloomers, so to speak. As long as the teeth are normal in size and shape, and are erupting in a normal fashion, it should be fine. READ MORE
Generally no. However it depends on where the extraction site is and if there were other factors which would make it more complicated. READ MORE
Yes. There may be many reasons such as diet, medications, etc. READ MORE
Depends on the case. A week it not too long of a time, so put the retainer back in an if its tight, wear it until it's not tight anymore. READ MORE
With a soft brush, using circular motions as well as back and forth. READ MORE
Yes go back and have it recemented in so decay will not ruin the tooth. READ MORE
Many causes. Decay, gum problems of something fractured. It needs to be looked at along with an x-ray or two. READ MORE
Not likely. It may be plaque, calculus building up which would be made darker via coffee. READ MORE
As long as you're not using a high fluoride toothpaste for caries prevention, ok. If you're cavity prone, then a prescription toothpaste needs to not be diluted via gargling. READ MORE
You may have an orthodontic problem which causes the gums to recede. Otherwise avoidance of habits like over brushing will help. Otherwise see a periodontist to have grafting done. READ MORE
About 30 minutes, maybe more if varnish's applied. READ MORE
Clear aligners are not abrasive to the lips when first applied and hygiene is normal as they are not in when brushing and flossing. READ MORE
Every 4-8 weeks or what the Dr says needs to be done. READ MORE
Poor oral hygiene. Otherwise normal habits can continue. READ MORE
Yes READ MORE
Hopefully no more than a day or so. There may be reasons such as it it was very deep in the first place or perhaps the restorations is a bit elevated and needs to be adjusted. READ MORE
Yes, but depending on how severe the case is/was may take a bit of time. READ MORE
Not too much. If that's the case, there may be a problem with a "dry socket." READ MORE
Follow directions given, use floss regularly and brush completely. READ MORE
If it's not an amalgam filling almost immediately or else when anesthetic's worn off. READ MORE
Use an orthodontic toothbrush which is made for this purpose. READ MORE
Depends on many factors. But many times orthodontic treatment improves things dramatically. READ MORE
All types assuming they fit well and don't come out when doing so. Lower dentures are notorious for not staying in place too long unless a lot of poly grip's used. READ MORE
Motrin 200 400 or 600mgs per the label. READ MORE
If done properly it very unlikely. However if the tooth's not properly restored, it can happen as it can become compromised via saliva, etc, getting into the canals. READ MORE
It should be. Make sure gauze's applied until it stops. READ MORE
Yes as long as the people take care of them just as one does for teeth. READ MORE
No. This is especially true if precious metals are used. READ MORE
Most normal foods, but hard foods may place pressure on said tooth, causing a bit of pain. READ MORE
I've never heard of such a thing. READ MORE
If you sip slowly, almost immediately. Otherwise when it's bleeding less. READ MORE
Twice or more per day regardless. READ MORE
2-3 depending on the maturity level of the child. READ MORE
Avoid excessive sweets, have regular dental visits and keep up with good oral hygiene at home. READ MORE
Brush the inside of them and place them in an ultrasonic cleaner. READ MORE
To be able to retain it. If the nerve's bad, or there's a lot of pain, having a root canal allows one to save teeth vs extraction. It's cheaper to keep your natural equipment so to speak, vs having implants placed. READ MORE
Yes, and don't listen to those who say you're going to have "mercury intoxication" or other nonsense. It's the lack of being honest about chemistry and how elements change into something else when combined with other elements. READ MORE
Gum problems or decay. READ MORE
Decay or calculus buildup due to an inability to keep it clean. READ MORE
Yes because they hardly break and don't wear out the opposing teeth. READ MORE
As long as it's not fractured, of course. READ MORE
Depends on the office. If there's not one there, then the dentist will do so. READ MORE
Dental implants should last a life time, but hygiene's important to keep the area clean just as is with normal teeth. READ MORE
It depends on how complicated the case is. A few rotated teeth is not much to do as all vs many teeth our of place or if there are skeletal issues. READ MORE
Avoid excessive sweets, keep up with good oral hygiene and if needed use pasts like MI paste, etc. READ MORE
Various medications or maybe a topical ointment placed over the area. READ MORE
