No. An abscess will not go away on its own. It is an infection that needs dental treatment. It will only worsen. Facial swelling can occur and expensive trips to the hospital. It may seem like its getting better at times, but it needs attention. Conway Jensen, DDS READ MORE
Dear parent, Teething usually begins between four and seven months of age. The timing of teething is not as important as the sequence of teething. We typically look for the bottom front teeth to erupt followed by the top front teeth followed by the side teeth, etc. It is the sequence that we typically find to be the most importance and teething. That average age of 4 to 7 months is just an average age. Many times, the teeth do not come in for way after that time or Sometimes before that time as well. We also look at the development of the child. For example we look to see that all other milestones are being made. If all of the milestones are being made we do not concern ourselves with the timing of those tooth eruption. If those other milestones are not being made, then we look for other possibilities.

In a deep cavity there are always chances that the cavity and the bacteria have entered the nerve area. If the cavity had been there s long time that is always possible. The dentist is not always able to know if the bacteria have entered the nerve area. Placing the filling sometimes all that is needed but some times that bacteria over time will start to affect the nerve tissue causing infection. Dr Jensen READ MORE
To close a gap there are a few ways. Best way is with braces of course. Another way is to build up the teeth with bonding. But sometimes that makes huge front teeth that may not look great. Often you need to crown all 4-6 front teeth to share the gap space to create a nice look. So braces, crowns, veneers or bonding are possible options. Depending on your bite and space of course. The old saying you get what you pay for is true. Dr. Jensen READ MORE
