Frederick Roy Bonds DDS's Expert Contributions
I recommend buying a bottle of Hibiclens at your local pharmacy. Apply liquid on the site (even if the sores haven't formed yet) with a Q-tip. Saturate area well. Apply 3-4 times daily. READ MORE
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

Yes, a number of procedures from cosmetic contouring, direct bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns can all improve the looks of your teeth READ MORE

Teeth that have root canal treatment can discolor if there was a swollen nerve that cause blood to get into the inside of the tooth structure. There it oxidizes and causes the tooth to look brownish READ MORE
No, and I am pretty open to alternative treatments. READ MORE

Nope, get them all at once. It will be easier on you. READ MORE
