  • Why does my tooth hurt after a crown?

    This is a normal risk of doing treatment. It all depends on the size of the cavity/fracture that required the crown and how deep your doctor had to drill. Whenever a tooth is drilled on the nerve is inflamed. The closer to the nerve it is the more inflamed it gets which can lead to pain. Give it a week or two and if it is not better a root canal may be needed. READ MORE

  • How long after a filling can I eat and drink?

    This depends on the type of filling done. If you get a white filling you can eat and drink immediately. If you get a silver filling it is recommended you wait one hour.

    The typical filling in the United States has a life span of 5 years. However, some filling can last between 20-30 years.

    An implant is the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth. You can use a bridge which causes damage to surrounding teeth and is difficult to take care of. Removable appliances are a viable option but can be cumbersome, cause pain, and are difficult to get used to. If finances are not an option than an implant is hands down the way to go. READ MORE

  • Is it normal for a tooth to hurt after a filling?
