  • How long do you have to eat soft foods after dental implants?

    It depends on if it is an implant with a crown attached or if it’s an implant under a denture. If it has a crown attached it’s ready for normal chewing by this stage. If under a denture, there are many variables. You would need to talk to your dentist or oral surgeon. READ MORE

  • Should I treat the cavity or remove the wisdom tooth?

    Most of the time, you should remove the tooth. Unless it’s in functional occlusion, i.e., you can bite perfectly with an opposing tooth. Also, your gum condition must also so be in a healthy state around that wisdom tooth and maintain routine cleaning/check ups. You must also make sure it’s not harming your second molar in front of it, due to angulation. It also depends on how deep the cavity/decay is and your symptoms. So many variables in dentistry that it’s hard to diagnose via messaging without digital imaging. I would get a second opinion from 2 dentists that see you in person. But if you want the average quick answer, after over 20 years in practice and surgeries, 80% of the time, it’s better to extract the tooth. Dr. J READ MORE

  • On and off jaw pain?

    Hello, Could be multiple possibilities. Dentistry is very hard to diagnose over the web. I could list multiple reasons, but it’s best to see your dentist. It could be an infected tooth. Tooth eruption depending on age or other factors.... Do you grind your teeth? Has there been any trauma? Etc. After you see your dentist, they will be able to take an X-ray or CT the area and do a physical diagnosis to see what the problem is. Thanks! Dr. J READ MORE

  • What can I do for severe tooth pain?

    I would definitely call around for a dentist in your area. READ MORE

  • How can I instantly relieve tooth pain?

    Hello, The only guaranteed way to be out of pain is to extract the tooth. Tons of variables though and I’d see your dentist immediately. Many options in dentistry to save teeth now. Dr. J READ MORE

  • Brackets on my braces came off while sleeping. What should I do?

    Hello, Just go back to your orthodontist or dentist. He or she will easily bond them back on. Usually the doctor's staff puts the brackets on and some are not trained as well as others. It's a simple fix though. Thanks, Dr. Jenkins READ MORE

  • Why do I still have bad breath after brushing my teeth?

    Hello, Possibly a couple things. Gastrointestinal problems frequently cause bad breath. However, from a dental aspect it could easily be from periodontal disease. Many bacteria cause bad breath and mere brushing will not kill them. Most bacteria hide under the gums. I’d definitely see your dentist for a check-up. Hope this helps. Dr. Jenkins READ MORE

  • Do new dentures hurt?

    Yes definitely it is common. Sounds like you need an adjustment to your denture(s). Every patient heals at different rates depending on their age and medical condition and other factors. If you feel a sharp piece in your mouth anywhere after the extractions it is usually bone and will need to be looked at. If your teeth were already gone and you’re speaking of your new replacement denture(s) then they typically do NOT hurt and I would follow up with your doctor. Most likely it’s a simple adjustment away from fitting properly. All of this is assuming you have no allergies to the acrylic...where the pain is at exactly... signs of swelling... meaning a potential underlying issue unrelated to the Dentures but is exacerbated by the Dentures etc. hopefully this helps:) Dr. J READ MORE

  • Is it better to have root canal or extraction?

    As with anything, there are variables. Literally dozens when it comes to endodontics vs. extractions. If you want a fast answer with no patient or tooth history, etc., I would say extraction and then implant or bridge or removable prosthetic to replace depending on your budget. However, a root canal can be and sometimes is a better choice. Dr. J READ MORE
