  • I just got a crown fit on my teeth but it hurts a lot. Does it require re-treatment?

    Have your dentist check to see if your bite is off or a bit high. This is usually the number one reason for crown discomfort. If there was originally a crack in the tooth, it is not uncommon that your tooth may need a root canal procedure if the crack ran deep and close to the nerve canal. READ MORE

  • What is this brownish tinge on my teeth around the gums?

    The brownish discoloration is either decay or calculus buildup. If it is a very light brown in color, it may be as simple as some gum recession and your root surface showing from brushing to hard in the area. READ MORE

  • I have tooth sensitivity but no cavities. What could be the reason?

    You could be experiencing tooth sensitivity from some gum recession or you may be clenching or grinding your teeth at night which would make them hypersensitive to hot and cold, especially cold. You should have your dentist evaluate your gums or see if you need a nightguard appliance to protect your teeth from grinding. At the moment, you can use Sensodyne toothpaste and ACT fluoride rinse to help decrease the sensitivity. READ MORE

  • Do I need braces to get rid of the gap in my teeth?

    Depending on the size of the gap, you may be able to close the gap with a simple retainer appliance. Another great option is Invisalign braces, which are clear, slip over your teeth and are usually much faster than traditional braces. READ MORE

  • What is the best way to treat dental plaque?

    The best way is to have a professional cleaning with a hygienist at a dental office. If your gums are sore and you can actually feel the plaque/calculus along your gum lines then you may possibly need a deep cleaning to remove all of this hardened bacteria. The sooner you do it, the sooner the gums will not be inflamed and sore and return back to normal health. READ MORE

  • The dentist has recommended my son’s tooth extraction. Is it the right way to go?

    It depends on the extent of the decay. His adult front teeth will not erupt until about age 6 for the lowers and around age 6 to 7 for the uppers. So you may want to get a second opinion to see if the teeth can be held onto a little longer with some fillings or even some pulpotomies, if the decay is all the way to the nerve. The longer they can be held onto, the better. READ MORE

  • Front tooth cavity

    Yes, you can place a porcelain veneer or crown on the tooth instead because the porcelain will never stain or change color. READ MORE

  • Adult tooth is loose. What should I do?

    You should see your dentist immediately to make sure that the root is not fractured first and foremost, and if the tooth is still sound, he or she can splint it to the adjacent teeth until it re-stabilizes. READ MORE

  • Bloody painful gums, what should I do?

    If you have bleeding gums, you may have periodontal disease (gum disease) which is best treated with a deep scaling by a hygienist at your dental office. If you have not flossed for awhile, the gums will bleed more initially because they are inflamed, but after a week or two of consistent flossing (and using an anti-bacterial mouth was like Listerine) the bleeding should begin to resolve as the tissues become healthier and the inflammation is reduced.

Get to know Dentist Dr. Mark A. Hanna, who serves patients in Framingham, Massachusetts. 

Dr. Hanna is an established general dentist & implantologist at Grace Dental in Framingham, Massachusetts. He combines the attentive, personalized care of a small-town dentist with the latest dental technologies and sedation techniques to provide truly amazing patient care. 

With a commitment to service and total comfort, he and his colleagues at Grace Dental are efficient and skilled at what they do, providing patients with comprehensive dental services all within a single office location. Treating children, elderly, and all ages in between, they offer the convenience of an all-inclusive dental practice from a team who wants to improve oral health and lives through personalized, pain-free care.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Hanna obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Boston University in May of 1995. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2000,  where he graduated magna cum laude with honors. During his final year at Tufts Dental, he was able to partake in an exchange program with Bonn University in Germany where his interest for implant dentistry was first sparked.

After graduating dental school, he spent the next decade furthering his knowledge and refining his skills in all aspects of dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, root canal therapy, comprehensive full mouth rehabilitation, sedation dentistry, and dental implantology. He received his initial training in implant dentistry at the Misch International Implant Institute.

His extensive focus on postdoctoral study of clinical dentistry places him in the top 5% of all dentists for continuing education, enabling him to provide some of the latest advances in dental technology – things like digital x-rays, Hybridge Restorations, and E4D same-day porcelain restorations. Best of all, Dr. Hanna combines this “big city” clinical dentistry with “small town” care that will make patients feel right at home. They won’t get any snooty lectures – just clear, understandable explanations and the latest in advanced dentistry. He has a way with words, helping patients understand exactly what is going on in their mouths and educating them on the possible treatment options. 

To advance his professional efforts, Dr. Hanna maintains active memberships with the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the Massachusetts Dental Society, and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy. 

On a more personal note, Dr. Hanna and his wife, Heba, have settled down in Sharon, Massachusetts. They both enjoy working in healthcare and treating patients. 

When he is not helping patients, Dr. Hanna enjoys teaching Sunday School and volunteering at church. His other hobbies include boating, fishing, traveling, and reading.
