  • What can sensitive teeth mean?

    This either means that you may have some decay starting in one or more teeth, or enamel is wearing down or exposed roots are starting to make teeth sensitive. Thanks, Bruce READ MORE

  • I wear dentures. My gums are aching! What can I do?

    First you should have your dentist evaluate the fit of your dentures to make sure they fit properly. They might need adjustments or relining. Take them out at night and massage your gums. Do not sleep in them. Clean them well and let them soak in a cleaning solution nightly. Hopefully this solves your problem. READ MORE

  • Is gum disease hereditary?

    It is still not believed that while gum disease is not hereditary, the predisposition to gum disease may be. There are other factors involved. Thanks, Bruce READ MORE

  • Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?

    If there is room for them, then determining why they hurt helps us decide to remove them. If they are functional, partly impacted, hard to maintain cleanliness, any periodontal picketingvaround the crowns of the teeth all help decide their fate. READ MORE

  • Is TMJ genetic?

  • Is root canal the only way to treat a tooth cavity?

    If the cavity is deep enough to reach the nerve, or has caused enough trauma that the nerve starts to die, or cause irreversible pulp inflammation, and there is enough toithvremaining to restore with a buildup and crown, then a root canal is the wise choice. READ MORE

  • Can flossing causes spaces between my teeth?
