Dr. Larry Tabatchnick DMD, MD's Expert Contributions
Yes, it can come in the form of deep IV sedation or general anesthesia if the office is equipped with a machine that provides inhalation anesthesia. Obviously general anesthesia is going to be significantly more expensive and carries more risk. READ MORE
I would give it some time and if it continues or gets worse, follow up with your Root Canal Dr. READ MORE
You should go back to the dentist who removed to tooth and make sure there is not a problem with the extraction site. READ MORE
You need to have them removed before they become any larger. Cysts tend to get larger and larger and as they do, they affect the tissues around them and get harder to treat. READ MORE
Yes, its better to have them removed while you are young. They eventually cause lots of problems and the older you get, the harder they are to remove and have greater chance for complications. READ MORE
It's best to make sure there is fluoride in the water, and if not, get supplemental fluoride tablets from your dentist. If you are not sure, have your water checked. Too much fluoride is as bad as none at all READ MORE
Fluoride works great to strengthen teeth. I would check to see if you have fluoride in your water and if not get supplemental fluoride from your dentist. READ MORE
There is a possibility. If the pain does not get better or starts to get worse and swells then you will need an antibiotic and follow up with your Root Canal Dr. READ MORE
Strict hygiene is very important for both mother and baby. More so for the mother until the baby starts to grow teeth. Growths can occur on the gums called granulomas during pregnancy if good hygiene is not maintained. READ MORE
That tooth may have a crack in the root or may be "dying" because of the trauma. If the tooth is intact, it may need a root canal and a crown. Do not wait till it abscesses and follow up with your dentist for an X-ray evaluation. READ MORE
Yes, you should have it removed. It will continue to cause problems and the longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove. READ MORE
If it is a baby tooth, they simply remove the pulp. It is best to retain baby teeth as long as possible. Without seeing x-rays, it is hard to give proper advice for your child. READ MORE
I would recommend seeing a pediatric dentist for evaluation once her teeth start to erupt. If she has a positive experience, she will not fear the dentist when she is older. READ MORE
I drink cold drinks very frequently. I am now having some numbness. Could it be because of my cold drink intake?
Numbness that persists is symptom of a possible underlying problem that should be followed up with your dentist. The longer you wait, the harder it may be to treat. Numbness to the mouth is not a common finding and should be further evaluated. READ MORE
Yes there is, but is very dependent on the relationship of the nerve to the root of the lower tooth. This can usually be told by looking at a panorex x-ray and an experienced Oral Surgery can determine what your approximate chances of incurring nerve injury. READ MORE
Depend on if they are upper or lower teeth. Usually recovery is longer for lower teeth then uppers, especially if bone is removed to extract the broken tooth. I tell my patients 1-7 days. READ MORE
It is somewhat normal to hear clicking or popping from the jaw joint (TMJ). As long as it is not causing any pain or difficulty in function, I would not be too concerned. READ MORE
Some teeth may be much more difficult to remove and thus referred to an Oral Surgeon rather then your dentist struggling to get them out. READ MORE
Not sure what would be causing it unless there was some minor damage to the adjacent tooth. If it persists, have your dentist check it out. READ MORE
Expect him to be very sore the first couple of weeks. Make sure you have lots of soup and broth. Cold drinks are helpful also. He will have to have another sleep study after all is healed to determine how much improvement he has before deciding whether he needs any other therapy at night. READ MORE
