It can vary depending upon a variety of factors. Under normal circumstances, a patient with a normal immune system, adequate hygiene, and average diet, it takes about 1 - 1 1/2 years for the cavity to break through the enamel. At that point the patient needs a filling. Changes in diet, stress, health and others can accelerate the process. Once into dentin, the cavity process speeds up READ MORE
Missing back teeth can be replaced with partials, bridges, and implants. It depends on where the missing teeth are, the bone health, overall health, and patient finances. I don't recommend replacing 2nd or 3rd molars if you can maintain the first molars. The cheapest way to replace back teeth is with a removable partial denture. READ MORE
Yes, gum care is essential to maintain an implant in the mouth. The patient should see the dentist at least every 6 months (or more if a gum problem exists). READ MORE
Follow a good oral health program that you and your dentist go over. Adequate home hygiene goes a long way to keep implants healthy READ MORE
See your dentist to have the area that is causing the irritation adjusted. It is possible that the denture may be too loose and needs a reline. OTC ointments like ambusol or zilactin can relieve pain temporarily. READ MORE

You could develop gum disease between your teeth and lose bone READ MORE
Most cavities undermine the enamel and it is not possible to reach the decay without drilling through the enamel. READ MORE
