Dr. Sarah Heshin Kong D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
Call your treating provider. They will determine what you need based on your procedure and your medical condition. READ MORE
The most common cause of dry mouth is medication. Have it checked by your dentist to determine if certain OTC treatments can be helpful and if you need to see your physician for a possible underlying medical condition. READ MORE
Oftentimes, when there is a cavity between teeth, it is not uncommon for both teeth to be affected. Your dentist can usually see this on the x-ray or directly in the mouth when performing the filling on one tooth. However, sensitivity after a filling is also not unusual. If the sensitivity persists or worsens over the the next week or two, call your dentist to have the tooth checked and maybe the bite adjusted. READ MORE
Flossing 1-2x daily will greatly improve your gum health. Try it for a couple weeks and you should see improvement. Adding a Waterpik can also help flush out lots of hidden food particles from between the teeth and gums. Also, having your teeth cleaned professionally more often (e.g., 3-4 times a year) will help keep your oral health in better shape. READ MORE
If the chip is mild and the tooth is not sensitive, dental bonding is a very conservative way to fix your chip. It is an additive procedure to replace what got chipped. It is done the same day and costs much less than a porcelain crown or veneer. READ MORE
Ask your dentist about the cause of the yellowing and if teeth whitening would be a good option for you. The best time to whiten your teeth is after getting them cleaned for optimal whitening results. READ MORE
