  • Tooth Be Told The Mouth Will Tell The Story

    For the last 5 years, I have been shifting my dental practice to be more medically oriented and also finding ways that dentistry is affected by medical conditions. I was recently introduced to Myobrace's research. I am intrigued by how breathing, swallowing, function, and posture affect teeth. I...

  • Do they clean your teeth before braces?

    They are not going to clean your gum tissue, but they will use pumice and etch to prepare the teeth for bonding the prices. You should have your teeth cleaned before getting braces put on. Hope this helps. Dr :) READ MORE

  • Can I get dental implants if I have bone loss?

    Yes, you can, but sometimes you may need grafting or sinus lift if you have a missing upper tooth. READ MORE

  • Is 5 days of antibiotics enough for tooth infection?

    7-10 days is the ideal time to treat dental infection with antibiotics. READ MORE

  • Can I use Sensodyne if I don't have sensitive teeth?

    Yes, you can. READ MORE

  • How long will a tooth hurt after being hit?

    It depends on how the tooth was hurt. If it is fractured either the crown (which is the part of the tooth that is inside the mouth) or the root, which is the part in the bone. If the pain is consistent for more than an hour, you need to see a dentist to take an X-ray. READ MORE

  • Will pulling a tooth stop the pain?

    Yes, unless you end up with dry socket or complications leading to infection. Pain that increases post-extraction needs to be checked out with your treating dentist. READ MORE

  • How long does it take bone graft to heal?

    Usually 3-4 months depending on physical health and nutrition. READ MORE

  • How do I fix the gap between my teeth?

    It depends on what you desire and where the gap is. If your teeth are skinny and have gaps, you can have them filled with either composite or veneers. If they have gaps because of malocclusion, you can look into braces. But if it is because of bone loss, you might need grafting with gum tissue in combination with again either porcelain or composite (tooth colored fillings). Sometimes a combination of these may be needed. It all depends on your budget and desire outcome and what is actually possible. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Can bonded teeth be whitened?

    Unfortunately, no, when teeth are bonded with either porcelain or composite (tooth colored filling), those material cannot be whitened. Porcelain don't change color over time, so if you have, then a certain color and teeth adjacent to that have changed color you can whiten those teeth without porcelain to match it. But not the porcelain itself. Composite do change color overtime and absorb stain, but cannot be whitened either. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Can you drink coffee after dental bonding?

    Yes, you may. Just know that over time, they can pick up stain. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Waiting on root canal after deep filling?

    Without seeing your X-ray, it is difficult to say. Based on the symptoms you described, you may have suffered from stretch stress on your TMJ which can cause shooting pain in ear (it is called referred pain). I recommend using hot and cold compress for 5 minute alternatively few times a day and avoid hard food. Advil (unless your allergic) is always best choice for analgesic. As for the tooth infection, if there is no swelling or pain if you press the tooth with your finger, it is not likely that it is infected, but needs to be checked. These are signs of infected tooth: spontaneous, lingering pain that does not go away for hours. If you have difficulty opening your mouth, you need to report that right away as it can become systemic quick. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Can you get two cavities on one tooth?

    Yes, you can. Cavities can happen on different surfaces of teeth, and cavities can reoccur if the cause of the original cavity is not addressed. Among those are lack of good oral hygiene, and a sugary diet. READ MORE

  • Can I wait a month to fill a cavity?

    It depends on the size of the cavity. If it is near the pulp and has symptoms, I would not. But if it's small and not half way through the dentist, you may have some time. READ MORE

  • Is it bad to leave a loose tooth in your mouth?

    Why is the tooth loose? If it's because of periodontal disease, then you may want to see a specialist to treat the infection. Periodontal disease is a systemic condition that can lead to other medical conditions including stroke and cardiovascular disease and can negatively impact diabetes. READ MORE

  • How long after tooth filling can I drink?

    You can drink right away. I would not recommend chewing till your numbness goes away. Be aware that sensitivity to cold is normal within 48 hours, so avoid cold beverages for a day or two. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Can I drink coffee after a tooth filling?

    Absolutely. But be careful with extreme temperature for awhile as your tooth is sensitive. READ MORE

  • Can infection come back after root canal?

    Yes. When a tooth becomes infected, it is never 100%. However, the sooner it is treated, the better the outcome. READ MORE

  • How do dentists treat small cavities?

    We have composite or tooth colored material that are cured with a blue light. There are some that still use silver filling, but not very many dentists use them. READ MORE

  • Deep filling?

    Nerve removal is the same as root canal. it is a procedure done to remove dead or infected nerve that causes lingering pain. to determine if you truly need root canal there is special test the dentist can do. if you are not having pain that is spontaneous and/or last for hours and is sore to touch most likely your filling is high or that your bite needs to be adjusted. also if you are not having cold and hot sensitivity mostly like you won't need root canal. I would have your dentist adjust your bite. hope this helps READ MORE

  • How long do fillings take to set?

    New materials are cured using a light so they are set and done before you leave the chair. READ MORE
