Dr. Owen Michael Waldman D.M.D.'s Expert Contributions
Yes, you will need local anesthesia and once numb, you should not feel anything. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Yes! Take her to a pediatric dentist or one that sees children ASAP. She may have that tooth for another 6 years before she gets her adult teeth. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Yes, it can cause shifting of your teeth and change your bite READ MORE
Hello, There is no definite answer. Sometimes it will be sore and the patient is fine by that night. Other times, a patient can be out for several days. It really depends on how intense the surgery to remove the tooth was and each patient's pain threshold and healing ability. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
It's completely up to you. Most root canals are performed by general dentists, but if it's a particularly difficult case, the general dentist will likely refer to a specialist. As I said, it depends on your comfort level. If you have confidence in your dentist to do it and he/she feels they are skilled enough, then go for it. On the other hand, if you do feel more comfortable going to a specialist, then I would go that route. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Yes, there are appliances that dentists can have made that are for sleep apnea where you don't need a C-Pap, but it depends on the severity of the issue. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Yes, you definitely should, especially if it's to the point your husband noticed. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Depending on how worn down it is, it can be repaired with some composite, but most likely an Onlay or full coverage crown will be best to repair long-term. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
I would seek a consult with an orthodontist. Braces can be put on at a fairly early age, but it really depends on several factors and each individual case. Seeing an orthodontist for a consult would be the best option concerning your son. Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
I wouldn't make a habit of it, but of you swallowed a little bit, you'll be fine :) READ MORE
As long as you are doing it properly with proper nutrition, it shouldn't affect the teeth READ MORE
It could be the sign of an acute infection, chronic periodontal disease or could be an issuer with it coming from the gut. I would start with a dental visit READ MORE
Yes it's true. Has to do with hormonal changes and the fact that you have another life inside of you that is taking some of your nutrients as well READ MORE
If it's along the gum line, most likely due to recession. If nor could be an issue with grinding of your teeth READ MORE
Hello, Sorry to hear that! Regarding your options, you have a few. If possible an implant would be best, 2nd best would be a fixed bridge and, lastly, if cost/insurance coverage is an issue, then the last option would be a removable partial denture, often referred to as a "flipper." Good luck. Best regards, Owen M. Waldman, DMD READ MORE
Yes it can. Diet and proper supplementation play a big part in our dental and overall health READ MORE
Unless it is from smoking or something that's exterior, otherwise, not likely READ MORE
Go back to the dentist that did the root canal and have it evaluated READ MORE
Yes! Go back to the treating doctor for evaluation READ MORE
Limit the amount of sweets, no sugary drinks or soda...water! After sweets, rinse with water and brush READ MORE
It may if the tooth is "opened" up. READ MORE
Yes, they do more with less effort on your part READ MORE
If it only happened once, then you may have cut the gums with food, etc, and don't worry too much, but of this is a normal occurrence, then yes it's something more serious and you should get checked ASAP READ MORE
What toothpaste or rinse do your use? Often times that can be the culprit. I have seen that sloughing off of "cheek skin" MANY times with people who use Crest ProHealth READ MORE
Periodontal disease does have a genetic component, so yes that can be a factor. However, there are several reasons that can affect periodontal health. Diet and overall health definitely play a big part. In addition, even though a person may brush and floss, if their technique isn't done properly in order to access the the bacteria, build up and inflammation can still occur. If you have regular hygiene visits, these are things the hygienist and/or dentist can go over with you to make sure your techniques are proper. There are also procedures and therapeutic rinses that can help if you are not in an advanced stage where surgery is indicated. That is why it's important to keep regular checkups and ask questions at your visits to address your concerns. READ MORE
Tough to answer without specifically seeing your case clinically and on an x-ray, but here are a couple of options. If you are under 25, most likely removal would be best, but again, can't make that definitive without seeing. Depending on the situation, that little flap can be removed to allow for cleaning around it, but again, can't say for sure without knowing the situation clinically and where tooth is positioned on x-ray. I would make an appointment to evaluate and see what would be best in your specific case READ MORE
