  • Why is my face swollen after a root canal treatment?

    There are multiple reasons why your face can swell after a root canal. To effectively answer the question, return to the place where the procedure was performed for a full evaluation. Your face is swollen because the cause of the infection (i.e., dead root tissue, decay/bacteria and antibodies all work to form purulent exudate or "pus") has not been completely removed and has liquefied the bone under the tooth. The tooth is under pressure and the pus needs somewhere to exit. The path of least resistance, believe it or not, is oftentimes your bone. After the bone, it gets into your gum tissue and affects the millions of cells there; this swelling of the face is called cellulitis and should be treated immediately. In my experience, I've also seen this if the offending tooth has a root fracture or has split. Periodontal, or gum abscess, can cause the face to swell, with or without a root canal. Take all prescribed medications that your doctor prescribed and make an appointment asap to see your dentist. Hope this helps. Good luck! READ MORE

  • What foods should I eat after going to the dentist?

    Hello, Great question. Without knowing what you had performed, I will try my best to answer. If you had a cleaning and fluoride treatment, eating or drinking with 30 minutes won't give the fluoride time to break the matrix and exchange with the calcium in your teeth; fluoride helps make your teeth cavity-resistant. If you had a crown preparation, if you had shouldn't eat anything sticky to displace the "temporary" restoration. This restoration helps to protect the tooth from sensation (the enamel layer was stripped away and the layer left contains the nerve, which is more open to stimuli,) protect the integrity of the work performed, helps the appearance of the tooth and keeps the tooth from shifting while you're waiting on your crown (if the tooth shifts, the crown may not fit, even after adjustments, and the procedure will have to be repeated.) If your temporary becomes displaced, report to your dentist immediately to have it replaced. If this isn't possible, your local pharmacy should carry dental temporary material until you can return. If you were numbed, or had to take an injection for any reason, while eating, you may not be able to feel your tongue or lips and may mistakenly bite them. This is especially true for children. Lastly, if you had an extraction, the most important thing is that the extraction needs to form a clot. A clot walls off the area to promote healing similar to a scab on your knee. Spicy foods can raise your blood pressure to disrupt a clot. Citrus acid and carbonated drinks can wash it away, as does hydrogen peroxide, salt water and mouthwash. Hot foods, such as soup, and crunchy foods can irritate the site. Bottom line, if the clot is washed away, a "dry socket" can form; these are more uncomfortable than a toothache! Should this happen, go back to the treating dentist immediately. Hope this helps. Good luck! READ MORE

  • Why are some people's canine teeth sharper than others?

    It's a function of age, positioning and wear. The lower jaw is mobile and upper is not. Over time, your boyfriend's canine teeth may wear down from the erosion from the lower teeth. As long as your teeth work to tear your food efficiently, there should be no worries! READ MORE

  • What is the treatment for dry mouth?

    Try a teaspoon of vegetable oil, spit, then rinse with water. Also, try to determine the underlying reason for the dry mouth. Syndrome or condition? Medication? Discuss these with your primary care physician. READ MORE

  • Can tooth sensitivity be cured by changing toothpaste?

    Depends on the causation of the sensitivity. If it's tooth decay, it's an upper tooth and you have sinus trouble OR you have had dental work done recently and the procedure/restoration requires adjusting, no. If it's gum recession, possibly. Sensodyne toothpaste helps, but takes a reasonable amount of time to work (about a month.) Brush for 3-4 minutes, spit, but DON'T RINSE! Letting it coat the teeth (over time) helps it to work.

  • What are the most visible signs and symptoms of a gum disease?

    Here are some signs that can help you: 1. Gum tissue is red, puffy in lieu of being "knife-edged" between the teeth. Gum tissue should be a healthy, salmon-colored (depending on your demographic) 2. Teeth appear to be "long" 3. Bleeding or soreness when you brush or floss 4. Bleeding or soreness when your gums are being checked during a cleaning 5. Blood on your pillow in the morning without any cuts/lacerations in your mouth or lips 6. Loose teeth 7. Malodor or bad breath. 8. Deposits (yellow or sometimes black) on the necks of your teeth that look foreign Hope this helps. Good luck! READ MORE

  • Why is my daughter still not teething?

    Teething age is relative, but 2 years of age seems to be a little late. Consult with a pediatric dentist. READ MORE

  • Why does my breath smell even after brushing my teeth and using mouthwash?

    You should floss as much as you brush. You should brush in the morning, before bed and after meals. Flossing eliminates food in between the teeth that sits there and rots (i.e., chicken, etc.) The foul odor and taste is rotten food that has changed to bacteria. It grows in a hot, moist, and dark place; it works along the same principle as not cleaning your underarms. READ MORE

  • Does a charcoal toothpaste really work?

    Believe it or not, it does work, but I don't think that the results are long lasting. I wouldn't use it daily either; there is not enough elapsed time for trials to determine activated charcoal effects on tooth enamel. Activated charcoal does not prevent cavities or freshen breath. Use a toothpaste recommended by the American Dental Association. READ MORE

  • Are there any natural remedies for dry mouth?
