  • Dying teeth?

    I certainly feel your frustration and my prayers go out to you. The complexity of your case is beyond the scope of this Q&A session. I can say based on research fillings typically have a maximum serviceable lifespan of 7-10 years. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5839197/). From my experience, complications usually arise when fillings are left to serve beyond those times. Think of it like a roof... if you're roof is beyond 15 years old, the likelihood of leaks and subsequent damage to your house increases dramatically. READ MORE

    As with any implant or any artificial device that is in direct contact with your immune system, there is a chance of rejection. The failure rate can also increase if the patient is a smoker, has diabetes, or other medical conditions. In addition, poor oral hygiene around the implant can also lead to high levels of bacteria which would also lead to implant failure. However, with that said, the success rate of dental implants is close to over 95%. READ MORE

    Sudden atmospheric pressure changes have been known to aggravate certain dental conditions as sinuses and teeth teeth can be connected. The roots of the top back teeth often extend into the sinus areas. I would recommend seeing your dentist asap to ensure everything is alright. As for preventing the problem in the future, there isn't much that can be done. Fortunately, it is not a common occurrence. READ MORE

  • What helps sore gums from partial dentures?

    Great question! Often times removing the denture and giving your tissues a rest can help. In addition, try rinsing with warm salt water 3 times a day.
