Dr. Mitchell V. Karl D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
Most people have experienced a "toothache" at one time or another. Have you ever wondered why some aches seem to go away and others do not? How can you determine when it is wise to seek professional help, versus waiting to see if the pain goes away as quickly as it came? The answer to these...
You would usually experience pain. But pain doesn’t necessarily mean that the nerve is exposed. You need to see your dentist. READ MORE
It depends upon what jaw surgery you are referring to. Simply ask your surgeon for the most accurate information pertaining to your particular circumstances. READ MORE
Not necessarily READ MORE
I do not believe so. READ MORE
Probably not. If you think that you have a dental infection, seek the care of a dentist as soon as possible. You MAY get lucky and it will go away on its own, but chances are much greater that things will go in the other direction and become much worse as a result of delaying the appropriate care. READ MORE
You should have been instructed by your surgeon. But you don’t rinse for the first 24 hours, then maybe 2-3 times per day for 1-2 days. READ MORE
It could be sore for 48-72 hours, but it shouldn’t really be painful. Call the Dr that placed it if you’re having pain. READ MORE
Usually an x-ray will show if the crown is fully covering all sides of the tooth adequately. Also, a dentist can feel with his explorer if an open margin may exist. Otherwise, a crown may not fit properly if the patient’s bite feels off, or if the crown has too much or too little pressure between itself and the adjacent teeth. READ MORE
There are too many factors involved to answer that with any accuracy. You need to ask your dentist what the long term prognosis is for your particular situation. READ MORE
A tooth can no longer be saved once the destruction of the tooth has reached the point that no matter what procedures are proposed, that the end result will still be a failure. The word failure means that the tooth will either fracture, fall out, not be usable for chewing, etc. The dentist must determine in advance, if possible, whether any proposed treatment will result in a predictable and successful outcome. I cannot go into what exact conditions constitute a tooth to be deemed nonrestorable, but my advice is to seek a second opinion if one dentist said that a specific tooth cannot be saved. This is especially true if you feel otherwise, or uncertain or uncomfortable of his/her diagnosis. Sometimes a tooth MAY be able to be saved, but the circumstances around saving it might not be predictable enough for the dentist to proceed without informing you of the potential failure that lies ahead, and your possible loss of the monies used to pay for those procedures if the end result is removal of the tooth even after the attempted procedures to save the tooth. Good luck with your dental situation. But another word regarding the removal or extraction of a tooth: In our office, that is the last option usually recommended unless there exists absolutely no other option. Be wary if someone tells you that extracting the tooth is no big deal, because we can easily place an implant to restore the area. On that note, I'll leave you and hope that this explanation was helpful to you. Mitchell Karl READ MORE
No. It helps to get you back on track. But proper home care is the key to keeping it under control. READ MORE
Yes. As long as there is enough tooth structure to support the new, probably bit larger filling. READ MORE
Anything is possible. However, if the surgery was performed properly, the chances of that happening are very small. If you have ANY doubts or questions, call and be seen by your surgeon as soon as possible. READ MORE
Yes definitely READ MORE
IF you want to use it at all, before OR after is irrelevant. READ MORE
In short, yes. It all depends upon the specific situation. You will need to seek professional dental advice to determine if your particular situation can be successfully resolved with a dental bonding procedure. READ MORE
The answer is that it’s possible. You may experience eruptive spurts which can cause gum pain similar to that of a teething baby. This may come and go intermittently. Pain can also result from infected gum tissues around a partially erupted wisdom tooth. Even the red sore tissues around an erupting wisdom tooth can become infected, which can also result in pain. READ MORE
Best advice is to seek a consultation appointment with an orthodontist. Some situations require the use of physical braces, while others can be performed with orthodontic trays such as Invisalign. Good luck. READ MORE
Best method is pain and anti-inflammatory medications. Sometimes ice can help if there is any swelling. You should obtain detailed instructions from the practitioner that performed the extraction procedure. Good luck. READ MORE
Only if you prefer to be. Most patients do not get sedation for routine implant placement, but it definitely is an option that remains available. So if you’re very nervous about the procedure, then sedation is a viable option. Good luck with whichever choice you make regarding the sedation decision. If you do decide upon sedation for your implant surgery, you will probably want to use an oral surgeon that performs sedation for other surgical procedures as well, versus a periodontist that usually doesn’t offer IV sedation to his/her patients.
