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.

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

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.

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
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
