Dr. Jeffrey Fellner, D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
In the absence of a pathological condition sensitivity is usually related to heavy handedness or overly irritating materials ( toothpaste or mouth rinses). Clenching and grinding habits may also predispose you to sensitivity. READ MORE
As with each surgery, each surgeon has differing criteria, but the safe answer is generally a soft diet for the first few days along with gentle home care and avoidance of aggressive rinses and drinks (Listerine, Scope, bubbly soft drinks, alcohols or lemonades) or tooth whitening materials. READ MORE
With the proper placement of anesthetic there should be no discomfort at all, post operatively (during the temporary phase- 2 weeks- there may be sensitivity to cold things or certain foods/drinks, with the permanent restoration in place and properly adjusted that sensitivity should resolve. READ MORE
Use which ever you like!! The fact you’re flossing is the most important!! Water Piks work great also!! READ MORE
Interestingly most patients do not complain of pain after implants- probably because the expectation was so great. The first couple of days after the treatment one should treat the area as a wound. READ MORE
Soft bristle brush in a gentle circular motion; with an electric brush stay on the neighboring teeth - avoid disrupting the extraction site and avoid strong alcohol-containing mouth rinses. READ MORE
It is possible and is dependent on where and how the Dr. designed the crown to fit on the tooth, the closer to the gingiva (gum) the more likely there will be some inflammation afterward. This is expected to resolve quickly with cautious home care. READ MORE
Simple answer- Yes, unless there Implants under those crowns, then No. READ MORE
Like any surgical site the goal is to allow healing without trauma or excessive irritation: gentle brushing, avoid aggressive materials (whitening or tarter control toothpastes), tooth whitening or carbonated drinks. READ MORE
Some cysts may be aggressive others benign so it’s is critical to have it looked at and assessed. READ MORE
If the discomfort is accompanied by swelling or even tingling/numbness then your Dr needs to know asap (right away), otherwise anti inflammatory meds warm saline rinses, and nutrition are the normal path. READ MORE
As long as you don’t forget to put in your aligner after brushing. READ MORE
Discomfort in the gingiva (gum tissue) usually lasts as long as the inflammation exists there- 2-3 days, reduce with Advil or Tylenol type meds READ MORE
The correct answer is: see your Dentist and determine the cause then solve the issue- the routine ‘cocktail conversation’ response is Ibuprophen and (or) vodka tonic…(just kidding) READ MORE
Usually some healing time does the trick, warm saline rinses helps in cleansing the affected area; prolonged pain or bleeding possibly with fever could mean infection and need for an evaluation by the Dr. READ MORE
It really depends upon the cause- genetic, systemic (autoimmune disease, dry mouth, diabetes) or local (tarter, stain, hard to reach spots) your Hygienist and Dr. will find a solution! READ MORE
Cold sensitivity is often a response to trauma, yes even Dentistry is traumatic but the healthy tooth should recover and become less sensitive. All natural teeth should respond to cold normally but hypersensitivity = trauma. ** if the sensation doesn’t go away quickly (lingers for minutes) then there might be concerns over the health of the tooth. READ MORE
By fissures I’m guessing you mean grooves and we call them anatomy- the way to clean properly is with a nice new toothbrush (regular or electric) as long as the bristles are straight; once the bristles are curved outward it’s pretty useless. READ MORE
If you are new to dentures and had extractions before the immediate placement of the dentures then an adjustment may need to be made soon, with anti inflammatories swelling will subside in a few days, healing will proceed dramatically over 7-14 days; frequent relines will help the fit and speed healing further; complete healing (bone) in 6 months. If no extractions but just new dentures then need to relieve any high spots (inside) and check / adjust the bite for stability- READ MORE
If a BAD taste and BAD breath is accompanied with fever and pain in the area it could well be osteitis or ‘dry socket’- need to be on antibiotics right away; and seek your Dr.’s follow-up care READ MORE
