If you are still early in the healing process (days after surgery), I would stay away from peanut butter as it can get stuck in the area that is healing. If you have sutures, this food can stick to it and be uncomfortable when trying to clean the area. Once healed, you can eat just about anything with your implants. READ MORE
Warm salt water rinses, keep sharp foods away from the area, and generally keep the area clean with proper brushing techniques. READ MORE
It's not uncommon that partial dentures feel strange for a first time wearer. Just like anything else, with time, this feeling will pass. The best thing you can do is wear the dentures, use them to eat and speak as much as possible. We are highly adaptive creatures and with time we can get used to most things. READ MORE
The best partial denture material depends on your expectations and preferences. If you are looking for a more esthetic option where there are no metal clasps visible, you might want to consider a plastic partial. If you are concerned about strength and longevity, a metal partial would be recommended. There are also partials that are a hybrid of these two and are becoming more popular recently. READ MORE
Yes, not a problem at all, just be sure to regularly clean your dentures as recommended by your dentist. READ MORE
As much as you feel comfortable doing so during the day. It is highly recommended to remove your dentures at bedtime. Failing to do so can lead to tissue infections, such as "Oral Thrush", a fungal infection called Candidiasis. Often, thrush presents as white spots on the tissue that can be wiped off and the tissue underneath would look irritated. READ MORE
Dental implants should be checked at every regular cleaning appointment. If you have full dentures hooked to implants and don't have cleaning appointments, it is recommended to see the dentist at least once a year for an evaluation. Even though implants cannot get cavities, they can develop gum issues if not kept clean which can be detrimental to the implant. READ MORE

The "white stuff" behind your teeth is called calculus. When food debris is left undisturbed by not brushing or flossing, it turns into calculus. Calculus is formed when the minerals of your saliva mix with the plaque on your teeth and create a hard substance that firmly adheres to the teeth. This material cannot be removed at home with brushing or flossing and must be professionally removed with ultrasonic scalers at the dentist. Buildup of calculus is known to cause gum issues such as gingivitis, periodontitis, and halitosis. READ MORE
A dentist will evaluate the condition of your teeth to see if there is enough bone support before doing a deep cleaning. Given this evaluation occurs, it would be highly unlikely for a deep cleaning to cause your teeth to fall out. If you have a few very loose teeth, your dentist may inform you that they need to be extracted before the deep cleaning. READ MORE
Generally, a deep cleaning has very little post operative discomfort. You may notice some soreness in the gums following treatment but this should dissipate several days after the cleaning. Some patients report cold sensitivity of their teeth after a deep cleaning. This is due to the root surfaces of the teeth being cleaned of debris and exposed to the environment for the first time in a while. I recommend my patients start using sensitive toothpaste before and after a deep cleaning. It will take approximately 4-6 weeks before the gums are healed. At this time, you would need to return to your dentist for a re-evaluation to check the pocket depths and condition of the gums. If an area is being stubborn and not healing properly, it may need some further treatment with antibacterial solutions or laser therapy. READ MORE
Symptoms of a tooth infection that is spreading would include: chills, fever, increase size of swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling nearing the eyes, and difficulty opening your mouth. If anything like this occurs it is imperative to seek help immediately as it can be life threatening. READ MORE
Depending on the depth of the gum pocket, your treatment options will vary. Generally speaking, if your pocketing is less than 7mm it can be treated with a traditional scaling and root planing procedure (deep cleaning). This would involve being numbed in the area and the pocket mechanically cleaned of debris and disinfected with solutions and/or laser. If the pocket is 7mm or more, generally best to see a gum specialist to treat this area (periodontist). Gum surgery would be needed to effectively clean below the pocket and bone smoothed for your gums could heal properly. With any of these options it is imperative to return to the dentist for maintenance cleanings every 3 to 4 months. READ MORE
A tooth infection left untreated can result it serious complications. These complications include pain, swelling, spread of infection, and can even cause death. A condition known as Ludwig's Angina can occur which is defined by swelling that spreads to the fascial space underneath the mandible. If Ludwig's Angina is treated quickly it can compromise a patient's ability to breath and ultimately cause death. Dental infections are serious and need to be treated as soon as possible! READ MORE
