  • Why is my tooth discolored after treatment?

    Root canal therapy removes the nerve tissue as well as the blood supply to the tooth. Without fluids to keep the tooth moist internally, it dries out and darkens. This is the normal progression. The tooth should be restored with a crown (cap) or some other strong protective cover to prevent it from breaking off. The crown will cover the darkness of the tooth and help to preserve function as well as looking more normal. READ MORE

  • Can a toothpaste help with tooth sensitivity?

    Yes using Sensodyne toothpaste can help with temperature sensitivity. If that doesn't lessen the sensitivity if may be due to other factors that would require in person examination. READ MORE
