  • How long does it take for a dental implant to osseointegrate to the bone?

    The practical aspect of the question is when can the implant be restored. Osseointegration refers to the microscopic growth of bone intimately around the implant. In general on a healthy patient, it takes about 4 months for implants to heal enough to withstand the forced of chewing. In some cases, a longer period of time is warranted if there are medical conditions or in areas that were reconstructed at the same time. Some implants can be restored immediately upon placement if biting forces are reduced or for some dentures, where forces are less than in patients with opposing natural teeth. . Typically, these will need a final prosthesis later on. READ MORE

  • Can wisdom teeth cause your gums to swell?

    Yes, wisdom teeth through inflammation, infection, or pathology can cause the gum tissue around a wisdom tooth to swell. You should have a professional such as your dentist or an OMS (oral and maxillofacial surgeon) examine the area and review radiographs to advise on proper treatment. Most commonly, as bacteria and food get trapped under tissue around a wisdom tooth , the gums get inflamed causing pericoronitis, which requires treatment. READ MORE

  • How long after wisdom tooth removal should I not eat?

    You can eat and drink right away after wisdom tooth removal. Of course if you were sedated, you should have an escort and wait till you are alert. You will be numb so be careful to night bite your lips or tongue. It is best to start with softer mild foods. Drink plenty of liquids. Having something to eat can help tolerate any prescriptions such as pain medicine or antibiotics. Pasta, eggs soup, yogurt and oatmeal can all be on the menu. Avoid really chewy foods like bagels, hard foods like chips, and be careful with small seeds or nuts for up to two weeks.. READ MORE

  • How can I stop my husband from grinding his teeth in his sleep?

    Many patients can stop this habit and minimize damage to the teeth with a night guard bite splint. These should be custom fit and made of hard plastic. Athletic mouth guards and over the counter ones tend not to work well and are hard to keep clean. Dentists can easily make a comfortable one. Some patients benefit from medicines that act on central neurotransmitters and reduce the grinding tendency. Stress reduction techniques and any major bite discrepancies- like a high filling- should be evaluated. Significant bite modification by a dentist should be avoided. Bite splints are reversible and should be tried first. READ MORE

  • What should be done for a chipped "baby tooth"?

    Sorry that happened. Your son should be evaluated to see if there is any damage to the root of the tooth or to the developing permanent tooth. If there is a red spot, the nerve may be exposed and can get infected. If the baby tooth is not mobile or discolored, that is unlikely. Nevertheless, he should be examined. If the gums get swollen, or the tooth darkens in color, it may require removal. If the edge is sharp, a dentist can file it down painlessly. READ MORE

  • How effective is clove oil to reduce tooth pain?

    Clove oil is effective. Most dentists use a eugenol solution, which acts in the same way. Pure clove oil can irritate the tissues and has a higher potential for allergic reactions. The oil/ solution is placed over the cavity or exposed nerve of the tooth. It will provide only temporary relief. Such relief of pain is indicative of pulpal inflammation in the tooth and the tooth will require root canal or extraction. Oil of clove was famously used in a scene with Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier that set folks fears of dentistry back many years in the book and movie "Marathon Man." READ MORE
