  • Can teeth be sensitive without a cavity?

    Yes, teeth can be sensitive without having a cavity. Sometimes, too, it’s difficult to recognize a cavity by visual inspection. That’s why dentists employ the use of radiographs in cavity diagnosis. You can also experience sensitivity due to demineralization of the enamel. It shows on teeth as a whitish spot. In addition, teeth can be sensitive due to deposit accumulation under the gum. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • Do dentures stain like teeth?

    Denture teeth are softer than natural teeth and can get stained more than teeth. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • Are fillings stronger than teeth?

    The simple answer is: No, fillings are not stronger than teeth. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • How do you get a loose tooth out that won't come out?

    Probably not a smart thing to try to take it out by yourself. Sometimes a loose tooth is actually a tooth broken just under the gum line. It’s better to have a dentist take an X-ray to determine if the entire tooth is loose or just the crown. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • What can I take for a bad toothache?

    Your best shot is to see a dentist and have an X-ray taken. That way a proper diagnosis can be made. If a dentist is not readily available, an over-the-counter pain medication can be of help alleviate the pain. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • What happens if a tooth root is left in the gum?

    If a root is left in the gum, three outcomes are possible: 1. If the pulp chamber is exposed, the root can be infected with the pathogens gaining access through the pulp chamber and canals. This can result in an abscess. In a worst case scenario, it may develop into a cyst. 2. The body or the alveolar bone may reject the root leading it to eventually be extruded. Also, in the presence of periodontal condition, the root may also slowly work its way out of the gum. 3. Nothing happens. The root can remain under the gum and be asymptotic.

  • How long do dental bridges last?

    Ideally, a bridge should last a lifetime. Several factors, however, play a role: 1. The span of the bridge. How long is the bridge? 2. The health of the supporting teeth or abutment. 3. The dental health of the patient. If the bridge has a long span, it may put loading pressure on the bridge and this can affect the lifespan of the bridge. If the supporting teeth are not sound, and develop carious lesion while supporting the bridge, it can result in failure. Finally, the oral health of the individual is very important. If the oral health is ignored, it can affect the durability of the bridge. Dr. Quincy Attipoe READ MORE

  • Is front tooth extraction the most painful?

    Technically, the front or anterior teeth have single roots. Compared to molars which are multi rooted, the front teeth should not be more painful. It should be less painful. The only caveat is the cuspids or canines which can have relatively longer roots and a bit tougher than the centrals. READ MORE

Dr. Attipoe is a general and cosmetic dentist with a special interest in prosthodontics and pediatric dentistry. He currently serves patients of all ages around the Dallas, Texas area at his private practice, Amazing Grace Family Dentistry.

Striving to become a dentist from a young age, he worked as a dental lab technician for more than a decade before enrolling in dental school at the Baylor College of Dentistry, where he earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

Always one with a passion for learning, Dr. Q as he is affectionately called, continues to seek out regular educational courses to improve his surgical abilities and stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in dental technology. He also makes it a point to offer free dental screenings and treatments to children in underserved communities around Texas. Whenever he has the opportunity, he enjoys going on mission trips to Africa, where he serves children in need of dental care.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.

Though he is well-rounded in all areas of dentistry, Dr. Attipoe’s skills in prosthodontics have earned him special recognition over the years. He was named the Best-of-Best in Prosthodontics at Baylor College of Dentistry and ultimately went on to become the Waterpik Technologies recipient of this Prosthodontic Award in 2007.
