Dr. Joseph Anthony Battaglia D.M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Is it okay to use Sensodyne every day?

    Very simply...yes. READ MORE

  • What hurts more braces or Invisalign?

    Neither one hurts. You may feel pressure when a wire is changed when you're in braces and when you change an aligner tray when you're using Invisalign or another clear aligner system. Always discuss these questions with your dentist. READ MORE

  • Can you fix sensitive teeth?

    In most cases, yes sensitivity can be "fixed". But first, an exam and a diagnostic process must be completed to determine the cause of the sensitivity. At that time, a dentist can implement the best way to address the problem. As always, speak with your dentist. Good luck.  READ MORE

  • Do they give anesthesia a for permanent crown?

    Usually local anesthesia. Not to worry…. READ MORE

  • Should I sleep with ice packs after wisdom teeth removal?

    While ice is good after the extractions, the pack should be on for 10-15 min and off for 10-15 min. Leaving the pack on while you sleep will not provide the level of cold needed to keep the swelling down as the ice pack will warm up after a relatively short period of time. Always speak with your dentist regarding post-treatment instructions. READ MORE

  • Do dentists numb you for crowns?

    Most times yes. But there can be times when it is not necessary. Speak with your dentists as every case is different. READ MORE

  • How can I fix a gap in my front teeth without braces?

    Depends on how wide the gap is. Veneers or bonding with composite resins can close the gap but you may need multiple teeth restored to have a proportional smile. READ MORE

  • Do crowns on front teeth look natural?

    Depends on the type of material used to make the crowns. Most crown materials used today are very natural looking. However, the most you can expect is to "almost" mimic a natural tooth. READ MORE

  • Is retreatment of the root canal painful?

    Not usually. But as always discuss your concerns with your dentist prior to any procedure. READ MORE

  • What toothpaste is best for gum recession?

    A soft toothbrush with fluoride-containing toothpaste. If there is sensitivity there are many desensitizing toothpastes available. READ MORE

  • Will my gums grow back after implants?

    Too many "if's" to answer your question. The best way to get an answer is to speak with your restorative dentist. READ MORE

  • Can you put a crown on a tooth without a root canal?

    Yes. This is usually done when the tooth has too much filling material, what dentists refer to as "over-restored". At times a root canal may be needed after the crown is completed. Then a small access opening is made in the crown to "access" and remove the tissue in the tooth by doing the root canal. Then either a post and core is placed or if there is enough tooth left, a core is placed and the crown is repaired. In most cases, the crown can remain as long as the margins where the tooth and crown meet are intact. READ MORE

  • How do dentists treat pulpitis?

    If the pulpitis is irreversible, then endodontic treatment is needed, i.e. root canal. If the pulpitis is reversible it can be treated and the treatment will depend on why the pulp is inflamed. Your dentist will be able to diagnose the cause of the pulpitis and recommend the appropriate treatment. READ MORE

  • What happens if you get a cavity under a filling?

    Your dentist can tell you how deep the decay under the filling appears based on an x-ray under most circumstances. If the pulp (nerve) of the tooth is infected from the bacteria in the decay, even if you have no symptoms, the tooth may need to be treated with a root canal. READ MORE

  • Can I brush my teeth with a temporary crown?

    Brush gently but do not floss either side of the tooth with the temporary crown as the way you floss could dislodge the temporary crown READ MORE

  • Does walking help tooth pain?

    Walking to a dentist is the only way I know of that will fix tooth pain. Good luck and I hope the walk is short and the fix will definitely be painless! Happy holidays. READ MORE

  • How do you floss after getting braces?

    Flossing with braces is difficult. The easiest way I've found is using GUM soft picks, original or advanced. Another method is using a floss threader. But its use is somewhat more difficult. Speak with your dentist to determine the best way to floss. You can use an electric toothbrush to help keep your braces and teeth clean. Discuss using a fluoride rinse or a prescription strength toothpaste to keep your teeth from decalcifing around the brackets. Speak with your dentist for the best home care plan to have a perfect smile after you've completed your orthodontic treatment. Good luck. READ MORE

  • Is it normal for veneers to fall?

    Veneers should not fall off, what is called debonding, after a month. However, there may be cofactors associated with your case that you and your dentist should discuss. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • How do you reduce swelling from an infected tooth?

    Swelling is a serious sign. Contact your dentist as you may need immediate treatment. Antibiotics would be the initial treatment if the swelling is caused by an infection. READ MORE

  • Is an abscess tooth serious?

    If you are having symptoms, it could be serious - call your dentist immediately for advise. If you are not having symptoms, treat the tooth as soon as possible to reduce the risk of having serious symptoms. Either way, see your dentist. READ MORE
