  • How many times a day should I brush my teeth?

    After every meal is best, however sometimes that just isn't possible. For sure you should brush every morning when you get up and again right before bedtime. Also remember to floss at least once a day. Flossing is actually better to do before bedtime than in the morning. READ MORE

  • What should I do if my permanent crown is not feeling right?

    On rare occasions, a permanent crown can have the cement “de-bond” and the crown will no longer be securely attached to the tooth. This could be the problem. Also if the bite is not quite perfect, it might put a bit of unusual pressure on the tooth making it feel like the entire tooth is loose, while it is not really “loose” it definitely can feel that way. I would say that the statistical odds point to a slight bite adjustment being needed. Both of these situations are not indications of anything being done incorrectly by the office that placed the crown, but are situations that happen from time to time. I would give the office a call and explain the situation to them. I’m sure it can be fixed with a quick look from the doctor. READ MORE

  • Do I need antibiotics for a tooth extraction?

    It depends on the situation. In most instances, you would not need an antibiotic for a simple extraction. However in cases of a serious infection (such as swelling) a doctor may prefer to have you take antibiotics prior to extraction. There are also some medical conditions that require a dose of antibiotics prior to major dental work to prevent infections. If the doctor doing the extraction has seen you recently, I would think that if they felt you needed antibiotics they would have prescribed some. Just to be clear, routine extractions with no health history complications normally do not require antibiotics preoperatively. READ MORE

  • Wisdom teeth removal

    Wisdom tooth removal is generally judged on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes, a tooth is impacted or some other clinical situation presents that your dentist feels would be better handled by someone with extensive training above and beyond what general dentists receive. It might also be a matter of sedation. In many states, general dentists cannot legally perform IV sedation without proof of extra training at an approved program, while oral surgeons receive their IV training as part of their advanced degree protocol.
