Can Invisalign fix big gaps between teeth?
It all depends on the individual case. For the most part, many gaps could be closed or almost closed with Invisalign. If they are not fully closed by the time the Invisalign treatment is finished, you could completely close the remaining gaps with bondings and/or porcelain veneers. If you attempt to close the big gaps with bonding and veneers alone, bypassing the Invisalign treatment, those teeth will look too wide and aesthetically unpleasant. Invisalign will help narrow those large gaps significantly enough so that the complete closure afterwards will look much more natural and a lot better. READ MORE
Are invisible braces better than metal braces?
Yes, Invisalign is generally better than metal braces. Not only they look better while you are under orthodontic treatment, but most importantly, maintaining your teeth and gums clean during this treatment is a lot easier with Invisalign than with metal braces. READ MORE
Can you eat normally with Invisalign?
You need to take out your Invisalign trays before eating. You should not eat with them on. You need to wear your trays for about 21 hours a day, and you can allocate as much as 3 hours to eating and drinking each day, without the trays in your mouth. READ MORE
Who is not eligible for metal braces?
Almost anyone is eligible for metal braces. However, maintaining your teeth and gums clean while having metal braces on is the key. Since the brackets and wires increase the surface areas of each tooth, there is more room for food particles and bacteria to adhere to. You need to meticulously brush and floss your teeth, even though it is much more of a challenge with them on. If you could get Invisalign instead, you will be much more comfortable with it, and maintaining your teeth and gums clean and healthy would be much easier. READ MORE
What helps gum swelling?
Gums can swell when there is a lot of plaque and bacteria present, when one os pregnant, or while taking certain medications. In most cases, it has to done with not having had a professional cleaning done in a while, not flossing, not brushing properly (correctly and for a sufficient amount of time), and having braces close to your gums. You should be under a care of a dentist to determine the root cause in your case. READ MORE
Augmentin is a strong antibiotic that works in most cases. However, antibiotics could take anywhere between 24-48 hours before they begin working. You should see the swelling and infection go done in a day or two. However, in some cases, the infection needs to be drained by a dentist before you see a significant relief. READ MORE
How often should you floss under a bridge?

Toothache when flying and having a cold
You may have sinus issues, if the tooth is an upper molar, in the back. When in an airplane, pressure changes throughout the flight and it can trigger these issues. If it is not an upper molar, the tooth may have an issue associated with it, which could trigger the same reaction. For sinus pressure relief, you should seen an ENT doctor. READ MORE
You are never too old to get braces, so you can get it at any age. But if you could get Invisalign, you can essentially achieve the same results, sometimes even quicker, and it is gentler on your teeth and gums. READ MORE
Can you get a full mouth of veneers?
Generally speaking, you can, but since your molars are not visible even when you smile in most cases, majority of people having veneers get them on their other 20 teeth. If you have a really big smile, you can include the upper first molars too, making it a total of 22 teeth with veneers. However, if you grind your teeth or clench them, especially at night. veneers may not be a good choice, especially on the back teeth. READ MORE
How long after dental implant surgery can I eat solid foods?
Normally following implant surgeries, you can eat solid foods, but should avoid foods that have small seeds in them such as sesame seeds, etc., so that they won't slide in and around the surgical site. You should also avoid hot and spicy foods for a few days, to allow for the gum to heal properly. READ MORE
Can gum recession around a crown be fixed?
Yes, you can generally have a gum graft done to compensate for gum recession, provided that you are healthy enough and that there is sufficient gum left around this crown for the graft to work. More importantly, you need to find out the root cause of this recession, to prevent it from happening again. This could be due to genetic factors, aging, aggressive brushing, existing gum disease, grinding, clenching, bad habits, etc. READ MORE
Do I need antibiotics after a filling?
No, you don't need any antibiotics after a filling. Antibiotics are only used to combat infections, in cases such as after tooth extractions, implant surgeries, and other surgical procedures. READ MORE
