  • My son's teeth are discoloured. Why?

    Many things can cause discoloration of teeth both while and after they have formed. The most common causes are too much fluoride, illnesses that occured while the tooth was forming, or genetic developmental problems with the teeth. After the teeth have erupted, the only way the stain is through contact with other foods, drinks, or chemicals. If the teeth have white spots on several teeth or brown and white spots, it is most likely too much fluoride. If there is a band or line of discoloration, you son might have been sick during that week or two of tooth formation. This is usually not a problem other than esthetically. READ MORE

  • How should I select my toothpaste?

    When people ask me what kind of toothpaste I use, I tell them 'whatever I can get for free'. I like any tooth paste that has fluoride in it, which is almost all of them. Some toothpastes, like tartar control or whitening toothpastes, tend to increase sensitivity so if you have sensitive teeth you should avoid them. Other than that, it's mainly what tastes the best to you. Now a tooth brush? That's a different story. Go with electric or sonic brushes. READ MORE

  • Are electric toothbrushes any better for the teeth?

    In my practice the patients who use Sonic or Braun brushes seem to have the best plaque control. My hygienists report a noticeable difference in the amount of plaque and tartar after patients start using them. So, yes! I have a Sonic brush at home and a Braun at work. READ MORE

  • Can cavities in one tooth affect other teeth as well?

    Cavities can “spread“ to an adjacent tooth but the dentist would have most likely seen and fixed that at the time that he treated your mother. Most likely, the sensitivity is coming from the new feeling which is typical. This will usually last a few weeks and get better. READ MORE

  • Is bad breath during cold and cough normal?

    Possible that the bacteria trapped in the mucus can give off an order but it is also possible that the cold has altered your sense of smell which to make you notice others differently than normal. Also, medications you’re taking might make your mouth and dryer which can affect halitosis. Be sure to floss and brush (even if you don’t feel like it) during your cold and I’m sure you will return to normal when you are better. READ MORE

  • How effective are sensitivity toothpastes in treating the problem?

    My personal opinion is that they do not help very much but they do not make the problem worse. Many toothpastes, especially tartar control and sensitive toothpastes, can increase sensitivity. Sensitivity in general is more of a nuisance than a real problem although sometimes it can be caused by cavities or cracks in your teeth. If you were not seeing a dentist, you should go to make sure that your teeth are OK. READ MORE

  • What is the right age to get braces for my child?

    That is a hard question to answer without seeing your child. I would not be too concerned about the spaces in front. In general, if baby teeth have spaces between them it is better for the adult teeth. Children who have no spaces between their baby teeth or more likely to need braces then children who do have the spaces. Most children start orthodontics around 12 or 13 however some cases start as early as 7 or 8. You should be taking your child to see a dentist every six months and he will recommend when is the best time for an evaluation. READ MORE

  • What calcium supplements do you recommend for my son's calcium deficiency?

    This is more of a question for your physician but most of the vitamins that we buy over the counter contain more supplements than we need and the excess is excreted from our bodies. Typical Flintstone vitamins are probably be more than enough. READ MORE

  • I am having excessive saliva secretion in my mouth. Does it mean an infection?

    Probably not infection. Are you taking any new medications or have you quit taking medications recently? This can lead to changes in salivary flow. Many other medical conditions can increase or decrease salivary flow. Infection typically does not. READ MORE

  • Does yellow teeth ever mean tooth decay?

    Not typically. If the color of the teeth are yellow, this may be your natural color. If there is a film on your teeth, you need to do a better job of brushing and flossing. This film will certainly be filled with bacteria which can lead to decay in the future. READ MORE

  • I am bleeding after 6 hours of my tooth extraction. What should I do?

    Sorry for the late response. I typically check these questions once a week or so. Bleeding after extraction can be serious but usually is not. I tell my patients that they can expect some minor bleeding even until the next morning as long as it is only a slight amount. If a patient is bleeding heavily more than an hour after the extraction, they should call me. Prior to any extraction, I ask if the patient is taking blood thinners or do they have a difficult time controlling bleeding. Bleeding can usually be controlled with pressure and if you have run out of the gauze that the office gave you, you can try biting on teabags. If you cannot get the bleeding under control, call the office as soon as possible. Heavy bleeding might even require a trip to the ER. But this is extremely rare. READ MORE

  • What could be the reason for my mouth dryness?

    Dry mouth is a common problem in my office but typically only in the elderly. I have seen many patients develop try mouth around the age of 80. Dry mouth causes tooth decay and can be difficult to control. Usually it’s not the age that causes the dry mouth but the medications that we can on at a certain age. If you have started any new medications recently, this could be the culprit. Other medical factors can lead to dry mouth if not and you might need to see your physician. READ MORE

  • How should I maintain my gum health?

    You need to floss every day. Try to do it in the morning during your usual morning routine. Flossing is the quickest and easiest way to prevent gum problems that you might develop in the future. READ MORE

  • Do root canals happen more often as you age?

    Not so much. A root canal is needed when a nerve is damaged. This usually happens because of decay, but sometimes because of injury. It can happen at any age. READ MORE

  • Can calcium deficiency impact teeth?

    Calcium is important during the formation of teeth. After teeth have fully erupted however, A lack of calcium will have very little effect on the teeth until you are much older, at which point a calcium deficiency can lead to osteoporosis which can affect the retention of the teeth long term. READ MORE

  • I underwent a root canal treatment and it is in pain again. What could be the reason?

    Not all root canals successful. If everything goes 100% right during the procedure, roughly 96% will succeed. (Which means 4% will fail). Possible causes for continued pain after a root canal include: a possible extra canal That was missed during the treatment or the treatment not being completed to the end of the tooth, a root fracture, or possibly the pain could be coming from another tooth. READ MORE

  • How can I reverse yellowing of my teeth?

    The best way is through bleaching which can be done at the dental office or over the counter. Bleaching has been proven to be safe and effective over the past 30 years. The bleaching process needs to be touched up every 3 to 6 months. Make sure you are not pregnant and sometimes you have to stick with it for several weeks or even a month or two before you see good results. Teeth can become sensitive but this is usually transit and will get better after the treatment is finished. READ MORE

  • Is bleeding of gums dangerous for a diabetic patient?

    Diabetes and gum disease are definitely related. Diabetes is the third leading factor in getting gum disease. Gum disease is an infection and diabetics do not fight infection as well as a non-diabetic individual. Bleeding is a sign of gum disease. You should go to a dentist for a professional cleaning and it is more important for a diabetic to floss daily than a non-diabetic person. READ MORE

  • Does switching toothpaste matter?

    I use whatever toothpaste I can get for free. As long as the toothpaste has fluoride, I am OK with it. Changing toothpaste is only necessary if the one you are using is causing sensitivity. READ MORE

  • Can novocaine be used during cleanings?

    You can but the dentist will usually charge extra and it is difficult to anesthetize the entire mouth. Dentist generally do not like to do this. Some people have more trouble with this than others. A sedative may be a better solution. I have some patients that I need to prescribe a sedative for their cleanings. They do much better with it. READ MORE

  • Do fillings need to be replaced?

    All dental work has a life expectancy. Your dentist should tell you when your feelings are beginning to leak and need replacing. Most feelings have a long life expectancy but sometimes, particularly in the front, they are replaced more frequently. You have to trust your dentist on this one and that’s why it’s important to go on a regular basis. READ MORE

  • What is gingivitis and its risk factors?

    Gingivitis is swelling and irritation of the gums. It is caused by plaque and tartar that forms around your teeth. If left untreated, the infection in your gums can spread down to the bone that holds your teeth in place and eventually you could begin losing teeth. We call this Periodontitis. The signs of gingivitis would be red, inflamed gums around the teeth with bleeding upon provocation. I.e. flossing or brushing. The best way to prevent gingivitis is by flossing and brushing regularly and going to the dentist to remove tartar that will inevitably form. READ MORE

  • Is a root canal in pregnancy safe?

    There are always risks and possible side effects with any treatment. In general, we do not like to do treatment on a pregnant woman but if it becomes necessary, we like to do it in the second trimester. You must understand that pain from an abscessed tooth causes stress on you and your child. The infection from the tooth can also spread which likewise is dangerous for you and your child. If left untreated, the pain could get severe or the infection could get dangerous. Occasionally, we prescribe antibiotics to try to keep the infection at bay until the baby is born but If you are six months pregnant, you may not be able to hold off another three months. I would recommend the treatment, especially if you are in your second trimester. READ MORE

  • Is higher or lower pressure better with water flossers?

    It is unlikely to damage your gums, but I would leave it where you feel comfortable. I always tell my patients who have a WaterPik to continue to floss. READ MORE

  • How can flossing help in maintaining the health of teeth and gums?

    If all of my patients flossed everyday, I would go broke. I never miss a day of flossing. It is the easiest way to maintain healthy teeth and gums. It is arguably more important than brushing. In general, you want to work the floss past the contact between your teeth and then gently go up and down below the gum line pulling the floss against each tooth. You do not want to floss back-and-forth as this may cut your gums. Getting into a regular habit of flossing will save you a lot of money at your dental office. READ MORE

  • Can a tooth abscess be seen on an X-ray?

    A dental abscess can usually be detected on an X-ray as a dark spot around the root of the tooth in question. You can also typically detect an abscess clinically by tapping on the teeth, the tooth in question will usually elicit a response from the patient. If a tooth is abscessed, the only treatments are extraction or root canal. READ MORE

  • Can an infected tooth spread the infection to the other teeth as well?

    It is possible for a dental infection to spread from one root tip to the next, potentially killing the adjacent tooth. The infection has to be rather large for this to happen and it’s not very common. Just the same, any dental infection should be treated as soon as possible. READ MORE

  • What does bone loss in the teeth mean?

    Generally, when a dentist tells you you have bone loss, he is referring to the bone that holds your teeth in place. We call this periodontitis and the bone loss is irreversible. It is important to stop it before it gets any worse as it could eventually lead to tooth loss. The best way to stop further deterioration would be flossing daily and seeing your dentist on a regular basis. READ MORE

  • Is chewing gum often bad for your teeth?

    Sugar free gum is good for you. Over chewing may cause jaw joint problems, but as far as your teeth, it stimulates saliva and helps clean your teeth after a meal. Keep on chewing. READ MORE

  • Pain after a filling?

    It is common for a tooth to be sensitive to cold for a few weeks after a new filling is done especially if the cavity was deep. This pain will typically improve week by week until gone, meaning this week should be better than last week. If the pain is a throbbing constant pain (not provoked by cold), then you might have a tooth that is dying and you should see your dentist. If the pain is not getting better or it is getting worse, you should see your dentist as well. If each week is better than the last, then let it go and it should go away in time. One other thing, make sure the bite is not high. If the bite feels off, you need to see your dentist as soon as possible as a high bite will lead to tooth ache pain and might even kill the tooth over time. READ MORE

  • Can a tooth abscess be seen on an X-ray?

    Usually abscesses can be seen on an x-ray as a dark halo around the root tip of the tooth in question. Not always though. In the early stages of an abscess, the root tip may seem normal on a radiograph. In the mouth, the dentist will 'tap' on the tooth. If it hurts or feels different than the adjacent tooth, then that is not a good sign. Patient signs of a dying tooth will be a throbbing pain particularly at night or a pain to cold that doesn't go away within a few seconds. READ MORE

  • Is reflux giving me bad breath?

    If you are flossing daily and brushing well, then the cause of any halitosis is probably not bacterial (which is the most offensive). It is possible for breath problems to arise from the back of the throat or even from what we eat, but usually these are not strong odors. A lot of breath problems that are not caused by bacteria are related to dry mouth. If your mouth feels dryer than normal, your breath can stale. I would recommend that you chew sugar free gum more frequently to stimulate saliva. You can also try Listerine strips and drinking more water helps with stale breath. I notice in my practice, a lot of patients think that they have bad breath, but I cannot detect a problem. READ MORE

  • Food getting stuck behind wisdom teeth

    I have no 80 year old patients with wisdom teeth, and it's not because they were 'rushing' to get them out. In other words, probably at some point in your life, you will have problems with them and need to get them out. Food catching around wisdom teeth can lead to cavities or a painful gum infection called pericoronitis. I see it a lot in my practice. The general rule is, if you are over 32 we try to keep them. If you are younger than that - get them out. READ MORE

  • Biting down on side of cheek when eating

    Cheek biting is a pain and a nuisance, but it usually doesn't last. The tongue and cheek are 'mold-able' muscles and usually will mold out of the way of your teeth. You might need to see a dentist to make sure that there is no growth or scar tissue forming. Your teeth can move at anytime but usually will stay in place because of the pressure the cheek and tongue applies to them. I doubt that is it. I have no good answer to solve your problem here except to say that it usually doesn't last forever. Good luck. READ MORE

  • How to get rid of mouth ulcers

    Apthous ulcers are a pain and can really hurt. We are not 100% sure of the cause and therefore treatment is limited. We do know that stress can bring them on (physical or emotional) but as you said, sometimes they seem to come on for no reason. We do know that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (or SLS) can bring them on. SLS is the ingredient in tooth paste that makes it 'suds'. When I have a patient who has this problem frequently, I recommend finding a toothpaste without SLS. (Aquafresh for canker sores is one but can be hard to find). We also have a product called Debacterol in our office. Your dentist may have it. It doesn't treat the problem, but literally burns the sores off. Some patients love it because they are healing after that and some obviously don't. Hopefully, this will not become a regular problem for you. Usually minor apthous ulcers go away in 2 weeks. READ MORE

  • How can flossing help in maintaining the health of teeth and gums?

    I always say that if all of my patients flossed every day, I would go out of business. Flossing is the cheapest and easiest way to prevent dental problems. The bacteria that cause decay and gum disease mainly live at the gum-line and in between your teeth. Flossing is the easiest way to clean the ones in between your teeth. You should do it daily. I recommend adding this to your morning routine as you will often be too tired at night to be consistent. The floss should be worked past the contact, pulled towards each tooth, and then gently worked up and down as far below the gum-line as you can go without hurting yourself. If it bleeds, floss more. Infected gums bleed, healthy gums do not. Also 6 month cleanings and evaluations are very important to finding problems early and preventing tooth loss. READ MORE

  • Is a root canal during pregnancy safe?

    We don't like to work on pregnant women but if we do, we like to do it in the 2nd trimester. There is always a risk when doing any dentistry on a woman who is pregnant but the risk of stress to the baby from pain and infection is usually worse. A tooth that is in pain will not usually get better without treatment (either extraction or root canal). The root canal is usually easier on the patient and therefor less stressful to your baby than an extraction. Leaving the tooth infected and you in pain is probably the worse thing you can do. Taking antibiotics will usually 'postpone' the pain for a few weeks at a time but again, taking medication is typically not advised in the third trimester. READ MORE

  • What does bone loss in the teeth mean?

    Bone loss is another term for gum disease. Your teeth are sitting in your 'jaw bone'. The gums overlay that. When you get gum disease, infection from bacteria and tartar eats away the bone that holds your teeth in place. If enough bone goes away, your teeth can literally fall out. Early bone loss means early gum disease. Next would be moderate, then severe. Bone loss is irreversible. What you have lost, we cannot grow back, but it is possible to stop future bone loss. Floss every day, especially if you have diabetes. See your dentist at least every 6 months and if you cannot control your diabetes, see your dentist more frequently for cleanings (3 or 4 month recalls). Diabetics have problems fighting infections, gum disease is an infection. Keep the bacteria gone, and the infection will go away. READ MORE

  • Having an abscessed tooth? What could this mean?

    An abscessed tooth is a tooth that is dying. For some reason (usually decay but sometimes injury), the tooth is dying or already dead. There is a nerve in your tooth that is necrosing (or basically becoming gangrene). There is no way to reverse gangrene, you must remove it from your body. This means you will either have to remove the tooth (an extraction) or remove the infected nerve (a root canal). Left untreated, an abscessed tooth will usually lead to severe pain, spread of infection, and rarely even death. The early signs of an abscessing tooth will be a throbbing pain, especially at night, and prolonged temperature pain (or pain to hot and cold). Seek treatment as soon as you can. READ MORE

  • What is gingivitis and its risk factors?

    Gingivitis is an infection in the gums around your teeth. If untreated, this will lead to a more serious infection called periodontitis which is infection in the gums AND the bone that holds your teeth in place. The simple treatment and prevention of gingivitis and periodontitis is flossing and seeing your dentist regularly for professional cleanings. Bacteria and tartar that live around the gumline is the cause of the infection and removing them is the cure. The signs of gingivitis will be a changing of color in the gums close to the teeth from a light pink (coral pink) to a darker red. Also, you will see swelling of the papilla or the triangle gum area between the teeth. Healthy gums will also appear stippled, like an orange, from top to bottom. READ MORE

  • What are the most visible signs and symptoms of a gum disease?

    It is good to be concerned with oral infections as they can cause pain, tooth loss, and other problems. All diseases in the mouth are pain free at first. The best ways to control dental problems is good old-fashioned brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist regularly. Gum disease is usually first detected by seeing blood in your sink after brushing or flossing. If you bleed after you clean your teeth, floss more and see your dentist. Avoid sugary diets and sugar habits such as sipping on soft drinks. Also, it is a good idea not to share tooth pastes between family members as colds and other infections can be spread from one toothbrush to another from the tube of toothpaste. READ MORE

  • Do I have to be numb?

    That depends on the size of your cavity and the skill of your dentist. Many dentists are surprised to know that not all patients need to be numbed to do basic dental procedures. In my practice, I have gone entire days without numbing patients and they have felt no pain at all. If a cavity is shallow or if you are replacing an old filling and the dentist is careful not to bare down into the tooth, you usually will feel no pain. Not many dentists practice this though as most numb patients automatically. To answer your second question, it can hurt a lot to have a tooth worked on without anesthesia. Again, it will depend on the size of the decay, the skill of the doctor, and other factors like your pain threshold and age. Older patients have smaller nerves and don't feel nearly as much as a younger patient who typically have huge nerves. You can always tell your dentist to try and go slow and if you start to feel pain, get numbed up. READ MORE

  • Can a gum infection pass to other parts of the body?

    A small number of people in America die from dental infections every year, either through infection spreading to the brain or a condition called Ludwig's angina which closes the airway in the throat from swelling. There is also a lot of research being done about gum disease and correlating increases in other disease processes such as prostate cancer and heart problems. The type of infection spreading is bacteria from your gums. Infected and bleeding gums can allow a lot of bacteria into your blood stream. I do not know of any way to identify the infections early but I do know that keeping your gums and teeth healthy is good for your overall medical health. Brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly for optimum dental health. READ MORE

  • How can I close the gap between my frontal teeth?

    The best way is through orthodontics (braces), but you can also try composites or veneers. Composites are white fillings and veneers are thin laboratory made porcelain covers that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Composites do not have the longevity of veneers, but they also do not alter the teeth. A veneer needs to have the tooth prepared to hold the veneer and the change is permanent. Both options usually look great and are much quicker than braces, but again, I don't like to alter healthy teeth and composites typically last 2-5 years in the front before chipping or needed to be replaced. Therefore, I recommend staying with the braces. Be sure to wear the retainers when done or else the space will come right back. READ MORE

  • Is it bad if a piece of an old filling falls out?

    When a filling falls out, it is usually because there is a cavity under the filling, so yes, that is bad. Sometimes, a filling will break and fall out with no decay present but even so, food can get caught in the hole which usually leads to a future cavity. You need to see a dentist to fill it or possibly crown it, if the filling/cavity is large. Remember, the main three diseases of the mouth (cavities, gum disease, and cancer) are all PAIN FREE, until it is too late. I would recommend you see a dentist as soon as possible for an evaluation. READ MORE

  • Why do some dentists hurt during cleanings more than others?

    This can be because the last hygienist you saw was 'heavy handed' or the hygienist you saw the time before could have left tartar behind which makes your gums more sore the next time. If you go to the same hygienist every time and it continues to hurt, you need to try another hygienist. Some are better than others at not hurting you. Also though, and very important, is how infected your gums are going in. If you floss everyday and have healthy, tight, non-bleeding gums, then it should not hurt to get your teeth cleaned. If you don't floss regularly and have infected gums, it will usually hurt to clean the tartar out, no matter how 'gentle' the hygienist is. READ MORE

  • Did my dental x-rays harm my baby? (first trimester)

    At this point, there is nothing you can do. We try not to take any X-rays or do any dental work, unless necessary in the 1st trimester. Occasionally, we have to and we never seem to have any problems, but I would check with my OB-GYN to be sure. Try not to lose sleep over it though, the amount of radiation for a routine dental examination is far less than a typical medical radiograph. Please avoid dental treatment until the 2nd trimester, if you need any work done. READ MORE

  • Can an infected tooth spread the infection to the other teeth as well?

    A dental abscess can spread to other root tips and infect them, but not on the short term. A dentist will usually prescribe antibiotics to control the infection and pain, while the patient is waiting for a dental visit to treat the tooth (by either root canal or extraction). This will usually be within a few weeks, so I wouldn't worry about it spreading during that time, especially if you are on the antibiotic. READ MORE

  • Is the fluoride treatment at the dentist really worth it?

    The fluoride we use in the office is a prescription strength. It is better than OTC rinses. Having said that, we usually only prescribe this for children. We do recommend extra fluoride for any adult who has had more than one cavity in the last two years. If you have no cavities and you are an adult, then I do not recommend it in my office. READ MORE

  • What can I eat or avoid eating to reduce plaque?

    It does sound like you are doing the right things. I would suggest to get a sonic brush if you do not have one and use it for the full two minutes, especially before going to the dentist. ;) Foods that encourage bacteria are sugary foods, breads, and meats. Foods that discourage plaque are coarse fruits and vegetables. Personally, I am a carnivore but I seldom have a plaque problem, so I am not sure that it is your diet. Better brushing techniques or a better brush should help. You might need to brush and extra time throughout the day as well. Also, chewing sugar-free gum helps remove plaque, especially after a meal. I recommend Trident with xylitol. Good luck READ MORE

  • Is water-flossing as effective as regular flossing?

    Not according to the study is that I have read. While a WaterPik does help remove major food debris, it does not remove finer plaque and as of today, the best way to remove plaque is with mechanical removal. (Brushing and flossing). It's akin to using a water hose to clean your garage floor versus scrubbing with a brush. Sorry, no easy way around this one, however, if you ass flossing to your morning routine, it does not take much time and you are much more likely to get it done. READ MORE

  • What if only one tooth is crooked?

    The proper way to straighten a tooth is with braces. Simple cases do not cost as much and Invisalign offer lower cost options for minor cases. The only other way to straighten the tooth would be with restorative treatment, i.e. a veneer, but this would permanently alter the tooth and I do not recommend it. READ MORE

  • What is a dry socket?

    A dry socket forms when you lose the blood clot covering the extraction site. Usually lost by smoking, spitting, or suction, once lost, the socket has exposed bone and exposed bone is always painful. It will go away on its own in two weeks however, the pain can be too intense to wait it out. Your friend needs to call the dentist who extracted the tooth. He can place a medication in the extraction site that will sooth the bone and pain until the socket heals. READ MORE

  • Can I whiten my teeth with baking soda alone?

    Baking soda is naturally abrasive which will remove superficial stains from your teeth. But it also can damage the enamel with excessive use. Most people have darker teeth because of long term, deeper stains. These require bleaching to reach and affect. Short answer: It will not hurt you in the short-term but it might not do much good either. READ MORE

  • I can't fix my teeth sensitivity. What do I do?

    You can ask your dentist for a fluoride gel and sometimes that will help, but sensitivity can be difficult to control for some people. In my practice, it is the complaint I hear the most, but it usually is not a sign of a serious problem (like decay). Common causes are root exposure and clenching. Root exposure can happen naturally in life, but many times it is caused by aggressive brushing or excessive clenching. If your tooth brush looks 'bent and worn' after a short period of use, then you are brushing too hard and I recommend a Sonic brush. You can't brush too hard with one of those. Also, you might ask your dentist to make you a night guard. Clenching leads to sensitivity. Ask yourself from time to time, 'are my teeth together right now?' If they are, you are clenching too much. Your teeth should never touch unless you are eating. Period. If you are clenching and you control that, your sensitivity might improve. Good luck, Doctor Hampton READ MORE
