Dr. Brian E. Jackson, DDS's Expert Contributions
The time to extract a tooth is dependent upon a number of conditions; where it is in the mouth, periodontal status of the tooth, amount of decay associated with the tooth, is the tooth impacted ? These are a few of the factors that need to be considered. In general i can only say from the start of local anesthesia to completion of the procedure to the end is somewhere between 10 to 60 minutes. Hope this helps. READ MORE
Generally speaking while you have dental anesthesia and are "numb" we suggest a softer diet. Nothing hard and crunchy ( example nuts, pretzels) until the anesthesia wears off. READ MORE
You have an infection. The abscess can be from the tooth or from the gum tissues. Usually, the "sinus tract" will pop on it's once the fluid pressure exceeds the tissue tolerance. You should contact a dentist. During this Covid-19 Pandemic many offices are doing virtual visits. Antibiotics are likely needed. You could try warm saltwater rinses ( 8 oz. of warm water & a small amount of salt) rinse for 30 seconds and spit that out. Try multiple times per day. Take Ibuprofen if you are able to take that type of medication. READ MORE
The dental office you went to sounds like they almost did everything they should have to diagnose your problem. A cracked tooth is one of the MOST difficult things to diagnose in dentistry. The 2 other tests I would suggest would be: 1) Test the teeth in that quadrant with a tooth sleuth. 2) Transilluminate the teeth in that quadrant. READ MORE
Call your dental office, they should be monitoring their office remotely. If, you still cannot reach them; Try Ibuprofen 400mg ( 2 tablets) and Tylenol 325mg at the same time every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. Do not exceed 16 tablets Ibuprofen or 6 tablets of Tylenol in a 24 hour period. You do not want to damage your liver. You can also try an ice-pack to the outside of your face every 20 minutes, if this aggravates the situation then switch to a warm moist compress. Hope this helps. READ MORE
Either it was not finished well and needs to be polished or a piece of the filling has chipped. Contact your dental office. READ MORE
Likely, it is from inflammation from the nerve of the tooth. Contact your dental office. READ MORE
While generally fillings do not turn into root canal. It is depends on depth of decay and health of the pulp of the tooth. READ MORE
This would be situational. To be prudent, I would consult with the doctor who did the root canal. If, there was a large infection associated with the tooth it would probably be best to wait 3 to 6 months in my opinion. READ MORE
There could be a number of reasons: depth of decay, the bite is incorrect. You should contact the dentist an advise them of your issue. Be prepared to answer these questions. Does it hurt to bite on that tooth? Is it cold sensitive. Is it sensitive to warm fluids. And how long the sensitivity lasts. READ MORE
It depends on the type of anesthetic used and where the injection was given. You are generally can be "numb" 2 to 4 hours. If, bupivacaine was used you maybe numb greater than 6 hours. I have had patients experience anesthesia greater than 12 hours. It depends on the type of anesthetic and your metabolism of the medication. READ MORE
Yes, a "high" dental restoration could cause jaw pain. It may also be related to the local anesthetic injections. Call your dentist and ask for a follow-up visit to check it out. READ MORE
It depends. Sometimes the tooth will be a little more cold sensitive than normal. With time 4 to 12 weeks that sensitivity should go away as reparative dentin is formed. READ MORE
Yes, jaw pain can be expected. If, the pain is severe 3 or 4 days AFTER the extraction you should contact the dentist. You may have a "dry Socket" READ MORE
Likely because the dental restoration is close to the nerve of the tooth. Let your dentist know, they may want to see you to evaluate. READ MORE
Depends on the depth of decay and how it was restored. Cold sensitivity should gradually dissipate in 4 to 12 weeks. Call the office if you have concern. READ MORE
Assuming the anesthesia has worn off, give it about 1 week to become accustomed to the new bite. If it does not feel correct after that, call the office and let them know you might need the bite adjusted. READ MORE
The gingival tissues can be sore after a dental restoration because of the matrix retainer, wedges, injections in the area. Rinse with warm salt water ( 8 oz. warm water and a shake of salt) for 30 seconds 3 to 5 times per day for 5 to 7 days. Take ibuprofen or Alleve as directed if you can take those medications. Brush the area gently to cut the bacterial load and allow the gingival tissues to heal. READ MORE
Generally the answer is No. Sometimes, a filling will be placed to "patch" the area until a new crown can be fabricated. READ MORE
Usually the tooth was not restored properly. Most root canal treated teeth need to have a crown placed. Or, the original root canal was not properly done. READ MORE
Your mouth was open for a long time is a possiblity. Was a rubber dam used? You may have possibly swallowed some of the root canal irrigating fluid. Contact the dental office ASAP. READ MORE
Sometimes it can be restored doing a direct pulp cap. It does work, but not ALL the time. READ MORE
Thrush is the fungus Candida Albicans, the only recommended treatment is to see your dentist or doctor to obtain a Rx for anti-fungal Nystatin . The Mycelex lozenges are easy to use. READ MORE
Yes, it is possible for your gingiva to be discomforting after dental anesthesia injection(s). Take Ibuprofen or Aleve as directed to reduce the inflammation reaction you may be having. Warm salt water rinses 3 to 5 times per day for 3 to 5 days may also be beneficial. READ MORE
If you can take medications like Ibuprofen or Aleve, they can reduce inflammation that is causing the discomfort. Warm salt water rinses may also help a bit. READ MORE
Yes a dental infection can show-up on an x-ray. The tooth in question should have additional testing to determine the vitality of the tooth. READ MORE
Place dental wax over the broken bracket, and call your dental provider. READ MORE
Not too much. If, the area is sharp cover it with dental wax that should have been given to you and call your dental office. READ MORE
Depends on the type of surgery you had. Generally speaking, after the 1st 3 days things should be getting better. READ MORE
Depends on what type of ulcers you have? Generally speaking, warm salt water rinses are the best. But, if cold makes it fell better then do so. You cannot hurt anything by rinsing. See a dental office for diagnosis. READ MORE
Sounds like you need to significantly increase your dental hygiene. Better brushing, flossing and I would strongly recommend a water pik if , you have braces. You MUST see your orthodontist for evaluation, this is NOT normal. READ MORE
Your dental hygiene is severly lacking. Better brushing, flossing is needed. Get a water pik. I advised all orthodontic patients to have a water pik. See your dental provider this is not normal. READ MORE
I would say it is possible, sounds like you are using too much salt. Try 8 oz. glass of warm water with just a quick shake of salt. Rinse for 30 seconds and spit it out. Hope it helps. READ MORE
Sounds like your teeth shifted after the start of the Essix retainers. See your dental office for a bite adjustment and possibly the need for new retainers. READ MORE
A "dry socket" is a failure of the blood clot to form over the bone where the tooth was extracted. See your dentist. It the mean time; take Ibuprofen of Alleve if you are able to take those types of medication (NSAIDS) and rinses with warm salt water 3 to 5 times per day. READ MORE
The answer to this is you may be developing a dental infection. See a dentist to get it looked at. READ MORE
It depends on what is causing the staining? Tartar, cavities, large consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine can cause staining. See a dental office READ MORE
Usually limited space in the oral cavity. Sounds unfortunate, but should have been evaluated in the teenage years and had orthodontic correction. READ MORE
Generally, if vicryl sutures were placed , they are usually removed after 14 days. READ MORE
That question is difficult to answer. "Settle in " , I assume you mean to become adjusted to having dentures. It can be varied on a number of factors. Were the dentures immediate dentures ? (Remaining front teeth and dentures delivered.) Healing needs to take place, dentures need to be adjusted. Speak with your provider's office they can give you more precise answers to your questions. READ MORE
As long as the teeth are erupted and decay free and you can keep them clean you can generally keep them forever. READ MORE
Generally speaking, the extraction site will be healing in the first 7 to 14 days. The bone will totally heal in 12 to 18 months. READ MORE
Normal is a relative term. If you see bone, it may be normal or it may not be. Any concern should be directed to the dental office. READ MORE
You can drink water as soon as the bleeding stops. Drink directly from the cup, do NOT use a straw. READ MORE
At age 5, there is no concern if a baby tooth has not come out yet. It will likely come out when it is its time. READ MORE
It may be tooth or it may be bone. Return to the dental office and find out. READ MORE
We advise to keep the gauze packing for 45 min. At that time take the gauze out. You will have oozing for 24- 72 hours. If, it is bright red it is likely actively bleeding. Place more gauze or a tea bag and put pressure on the extraction site for 30 minutes. Put, an ibe pack on the outside of your face every 20 minutes. READ MORE
It may affect your speech, depends where the missing tooth is located. Ask your dental provider. READ MORE
The clot begins to form immediately after the extraction. It is imperative that it forms as this is the first stage of the healing process. READ MORE
Yes Invisalign does provide permanent results. But, you will likely need to wear a retainer for life. READ MORE
Yes you can get a crown with out a root canal. When large filling are placed , crown are often recommended to protect the tooth from breaking. READ MORE
The short answer is it depends on the situation. Ask your dentist to give his/her opinion. READ MORE
See your dentist, the denture may need to be relined or possibly you need a new denture. Denture adhesive can help retain your denture until it is evaluated by a dentist. READ MORE
Yes you can brush your teeth with a broken tooth. You want to keep the area as clean as possible to cut down the bacteria load and see a dentist as soon as possible. READ MORE
A crown should last a long time, a lifetime is an unrealistic request. READ MORE
I usually recommend rinsing with salt water 3 to 5 times a day for 7 to 10 days. It depends on the severity of the extraction. Hope this helps. READ MORE
Generally cavities do not heal themselves. If, it is an extremely small cavity sometimes bioactive materials can be used in the dental office to restore the tooth. See your dentist to see if they can be restored. READ MORE
Baking soda cleans your teeth because it is so abrasive. It's pH is also very "basic" so it helps reduce the pH that the plaque acids produce. We do not recommend using baking soda frequently because it is too abrasive for your teeth. Consider using Arm & Hammer toothpaste that contains baking soda in it. READ MORE
That depends on a lot of factors. You smile line, your bite, etc. Generally speaking, E-Max crowns are very esthetic, or if the situation requires strength layered Zirconia. READ MORE
Likely because your teeth are beginning to move orthodontically. Your dental hygiene should be the best that it can be, whether with traditional braces or Invisalign. Floss regularly, rinse with warm salt water rinses (8 oz warm water and a shake of salt) 2 to 3 times per day for 5 days to cut down the bacterial load. If not improved in 7 days, see your orthodontist or dentist. READ MORE
If you only did not wear the retainer for only a week. The orthodontist will likely know that you have not worn it, but likely you will NOT need to have braces again. Be honest with the orthodontist. READ MORE
Most primary teeth are in the mouth by age 2. Some patients have a delayed dental development. Teeth usually do not start to get loose until age 6 or 7. READ MORE
Get to a dentist as soon as possible. Rinse with warm salt water rinses. Take Ibuprofen if you can take it, for the discomfort. READ MORE
If the crown came off, yes, you need to go back to the dentist and see what is wrong. READ MORE
You should be instructed to start rinsing with salt water the following day. I recommend to my patients that you rinse 3 to 5 times per day for 7 to 10 days. Hope this helps. READ MORE
Yes, it is ok to gargle with water after brushing your teeth. As long as you are brushing for at least 2 minutes and flossing. The ideal time to brush after eating is 30 minutes after a meal. READ MORE
Yes, they can look very natural. With porcelain crowns (E-Max or Zirconia), the crowns look very natural. If a crown is recommended, review the options with your dentist. Maybe a veneer is only required. READ MORE
If you are able to take an NSAID (e.g., Ibuprofen or Aleve), these medications may help. Soft diet, nothing hard and crunchy is also recommended. READ MORE
Your teeth may shift, which may cause a problem with your occlusion (bite). Before the extraction(s) discuss what your options are for replacing the missing teeth, so there is a plan in place. READ MORE
It may be from the coffee. You should see the dentist to see if it is tartar that is stained because of the coffee or the maybe some cavities. You need to be evaluated. READ MORE
It is usually ok to have coffee. If you are having sedation for the bone graft that likely you were instructed to have nothing by mouth at least 4 to 8 hours prior to your procedure. Coffee after the procedure is usually allowed, however you are going to want to let the coffee cool down before drinking it. You do not want to increase the chance of post-op bleeding. Cold things are better. READ MORE
