  • Is a baking soda rinse safe for my teeth?

    Great question! While brushing with baking soda can be a bit abrasive to the enamel, it may cause tooth sensitivity as well as eventual dulling of the teeth, rinsing with it balances the pH in the mouth which decreases the risk of ulcers and caries. I hope this helps! READ MORE

  • I have a black stain on my tooth. How can I get it removed?

    A black stain may have been caused by a number of things. It may be from coffee, tea, or just simply not having a professional cleaning. Black stains may also be a cavity. The best thing to do is see your dentist to have an examination to determine the best way to proceed with removing the black stain. Thanks for your question. READ MORE

  • Why am I so exhausted after removal of infected root canal molar?

    I highly recommend you see your physician soon. You should have a blood test done to determine if there is some other underlying problem. This is a serious matter and you should not put off seeking medical attention. I hope this helps. Dana Truesdale, DDS READ MORE

  • Are cavities possible in baby teeth?

    Cavities are possible in baby teeth. It is important that children see the dentist twice yearly just as an adult would. As soon as babies get teeth they are at risk for cavities. The key is to limit sugary products and eliminate the baby going to bed with a bottle once they have teeth unless you take the time to clean their teeth after they consume the drying (milk). Please research “baby bottle tooth decay” at your leisure. READ MORE

  • Are there any home remedies to treat bleeding gums?

    Thanks for your inquiry. There are many factors that can contribute to bleeding gums. If he is a regular flosser and brushes, consider his diet. He may be allergic to something that he eats on a regular bases, e.g., cinnamon, which burns the gums. The best thing to do is schedule a visit with his dentist to assess the situation. It is also a good idea to use alcohol-free mouthwash after flossing. READ MORE

  • I am still having pain after my wisdom tooth extraction last week. Why is this happening?

    Great question! It is not unusual to experience discomfort for up to two weeks following oral surgery. The pain levels vary from slight to severe. If the pain level is severe, it is a good idea to return to the dentist who performed the surgery and be evaluated for dry socket or anything that is abnormal. Slight pain can be taken care of with pain medication. Swelling is also common. READ MORE

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

    It is not uncommon to have bleeding 6 hours following an extraction. Pain is also common. It is important rest and drink lots of fluids. Anti-inflammatory medication is good for relief of pain. You can expect to see blood in your saliva for the first two days. READ MORE

  • I had my wisdom tooth removed yesterday. When can I start eating solid food again?

    There is no set period of time to wait until you are able to eat solid food. You can slowly start reintroducing soft foods into your diet after the numbness goes away. As you can tolerate more tender foods you may consume them. I would recommend leaving tough foods like steak alone for few weeks. READ MORE

  • I have white dots on both of my gums and tongue. What could these be?

    Thank you for your question regarding white dots. It is not uncommon for a person to have white pimple-like spots on the tongue and cheek areas. There can be many reasons behind the white dots. I encourage you to visit your dentist and have a dental exam completed. Some white spots are completely harmless, while others can be a cause for concern. The only way to tell is to follow up with your dentist or physician. READ MORE

  • I am a diabetic and my gums have been bleeding. Is there something to be concerned about?

    There are many reasons that your gums are bleeding. This is usually a result of gingival inflammation that is caused by something acute (like trauma) or something chronic (like periodontal disease). Long term bleeding may result in loose teeth and/or bone loss. The good news is that this condition may be controlled with regular home care like brushing, flossing, and using an anti-bacterial mouthwash. It is very important to follow-up with your dentist to determine the proper treatment. Most times this is something that can be easily managed. READ MORE

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

    Great question! It is recommended that you consult with your OB-GYN regarding dental treatment during your pregnancy. However, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists indicates dental x-rays while pregnant are safe. Proper universal precautions should be taken and if you were wearing the X-ray covering, you were properly protected. I recommend you inform the office that you are pregnant. READ MORE

  • How to get rid of mouth ulcers

    A good way to reduce the irritation and promote fast healing is to rinse your mouth out/gargle with Peroxide. You should not dilute it with water. Rinse several times daily until the irritated area is gone. If the ulcer lasts longer than 14 days and your symptoms have not improved, consult your dentist. Remember, because it is peroxide, your mouth will foam for about a minute after you rinse. Only spit out the foam. Do not rinse out with water afterwards. Do not swallow the Peroxide! READ MORE

  • Biting down on side of cheek when eating

    There are a few reasons this may be happening. The more common cause of this happening is the wisdom teeth are erupting or have completely erupted, and they are angled in such a way that they pinch your cheeks upon grinding your food. Shifting of the teeth or any recent dental changes may also cause you to alter your bite and this too may cause involuntary cheek-biting. READ MORE
