Dr. Mark Lewis Waltzer D.M.D.'s Expert Contributions
I believe it is too early to do a caries risk assessment. He needs more teeth first. READ MORE
It's never too late to practice meticulous oral hygiene, which will help prevent future problems from gingivitis. In order to get gingivitis under control it is necessary to visit your dentist. READ MORE
This should be discussed with your surgeon beforehand. However, recent research shows that the combination of 600 mg of ibuprofen + 600-1000 mg of acetaminophen is just as effective as narcotics. READ MORE
OTC whitening rarely causes problems, but is usually limited in effectiveness. You can discuss more effective options with your dentist. Whitening does not harm enamel as long as it is supervised by your dentist. READ MORE
There are a number of indications for root canal therapy. The most common ones are infection from a cavity into or near the nerve of a tooth, trauma to a front tooth, and severe grinding on back teeth. READ MORE
There are several things you can do to reduce your cavity rate. Obviously brushing and flossing regularly are important. You should avoid or limit foods that are high in sugar and starch, especially if they are sticky and tend to hang around in your mouth for a long period of time. Frequent sipping of soda or juice is very destructive as the high sugar content combined with the high acid content is especially harmful. Water is the best thing to drink as it helps clear the food and moistens the mouth. Many medications can lead to dry mouth, which increases cavities. In some cases a prescription strength fluoride toothpaste can be prescribed by your dentist. READ MORE
Absolutely! You are more susceptible to periodontal disease, tooth loss, and oral infections unless you have excellent glycemic control. READ MORE
Fillings do not last forever! However, in this case it sounds like the cavity was close to the nerve in the tooth and it is just now showing symptoms. The tooth may need root canal treatment. READ MORE
They usually can be replaced depending on how large they are and whether there is decay under them. Sometimes the tooth is weak underneath and may require a crown. If the fillings are intact with no signs of leakage or decay, I suggest leaving them alone. READ MORE
Have you seen your dentist recently? Bad breath may be a sign of periodontal disease or a systemic condition. If those have been ruled out then therapeutic mouthwashes should only be used a couple of times daily. Chewing sugar-free gum and sugar-free mints may help. READ MORE
Chewing ice is a serious hazard for teeth. The combination of extreme cold and pressure can cause breakage of teeth and restorations. READ MORE
It depends on the acidity of the liquid and how long you hold it in your mouth. If you simply drink it and then rinse with water, I would expect you to be safe. If you constantly sip it all day long, that would be dangerous. READ MORE
Over the counter products are only minimally effective in this situation. You would need to consult your dentist for your particular situation. READ MORE
Dentures have been around for a very long time and most people adapt to them eventually. She can talk to her dentist about implants that either replace the teeth or can snap dentures in place so they feel more like real teeth. READ MORE
Not necessarily. If the tooth doesn't feel pretty normal after a few weeks, then you need to go back to the dentist who performed the treatment or get a second opinion. READ MORE
It could be an infection or some kind of ulcer in the area. You should have your dentist look at it if it doesn't subside in a few days. READ MORE
You did the right thing scheduling an appointment with her dentist. The possibility of hidden damage is present and will be evaluated by your dentist. Most likely he or she will be able to bond the teeth to restore a normal appearance. READ MORE
Sounds like you could have a serious case of gingivitis or periodontitis. You need to see your dentist for an evaluation. READ MORE
There could be a number of reasons for oral ulcers, such as allergy, autoimmune conditions, or trauma. You should be evaluated by your dentist or an oral medicine specialist. READ MORE
Yes, there are several over-the-counter toothpastes which can help with this problem. They will not help if the problem is due to cavities or an abscess. READ MORE
It can be improved but will always come back as long as you continue to smoke. READ MORE
Depends on the size of the filling. Many can be done without numbing if they are small enough. The X-ray should help indicate the size of the filling. READ MORE
It could be coming from elsewhere, but you need to be screened for periodontal disease or other oral conditions by your dentist. READ MORE
There is mounting evidence that oral infections can spread to other parts of the body. Sometimes the patient doesn't even realize they have periodontal infections. The best way to prevent this from happening is to have regular exams and cleanings at your dentist's office. READ MORE
Unfortunately, higher settings can cause trauma to your gums. READ MORE
Not as long as your toothpaste is doing its job. READ MORE
It's not that risk increases with age, but the older you are, the more time there is for cavities or trauma to affect the teeth. READ MORE
As long as you are not wearing your teeth down or getting TMJ symptoms, sugar-free gum is not harmful. READ MORE
An abscess occurs when the nerve inside the tooth becomes infected and the infection spreads into the area surrounding the tooth. The infection may be contained by the body's immune system or spread to adjacent areas. Sometimes the abscess can be asymptomatic, but it is not a good idea to allow the infection to go untreated as there may be systemic consequences. The early signs of an abscess are swelling or pain to biting and/or hot. READ MORE
TMJ issues never really completely heal. Your dentist can evaluate you for things that may be contributing to your current TMJ issues, such as grinding or serious bite problems. READ MORE
Keep up your hygiene regimen! Avoiding sugary, sticky foods is very important, as you know. High fiber fruits and vegetables are the best snacks. Your hygienist should be able to give you tips on how to clean the areas that seem to accumulate the most debris, plaque, and calculus. Once calculus, or tartar, forms it can only be removed professionally. READ MORE
Since you reported that a lead apron was used, you have nothing to worry about. With today's modern X-ray machines and digital systems, there is virtually no scatter to the rest of the body anyway. READ MORE
A dry socket (alveolar osteitis) can happen after an extraction when the blood clot in the socket is disturbed. It is not an infection and will not respond to antibiotics. It is treated by cleaning out the socket (usually with local anesthesia) and packing the socket with a special paste to relieve the pain. It may take anywhere from 3 - 5 days to resolve. READ MORE
That's a pretty unusual situation. Hard to say what is happening without seeing the gums. It could be an allergy to something used the other day or a preexisting periodontal issue. You really should call your dentist immediately and ask to be seen without delay. READ MORE
I assume you are following any instructions your dentist gave you, such as a very soft toothbrush. Your dentist should have some desensitizing medication that can be applied. READ MORE
