You really won't know until you have the exam. It may be nothing at all. You have an idea of how bad things may be if you have broken teeth, bleeding gums, etc. So you shouldn't be surprised. The important thing is to get in there and have them look things over. Create a treatment plan to address your problems and start taking care of the problems until you have established good oral health. READ MORE
Depends upon how difficult the extraction was. Simple extractions take a day or two to heal, but surgical removals can take longer. It is important to follow your doctors instructions exactly and avoid smoking or excessive rinsing of the site READ MORE
Depends upon how difficult the root canal is, how competent your doctor is in doing them, and your personal preference. READ MORE
Try the reward method. Buy a toy that she really wants. Put it on top of a dresser or refrigerator (up out of her reach) and tell her she can have it when she stops sucking her thumb. Continually reminding her of it or punishing her adds to the insecurity that is causing the problem. READ MORE
