Mark A. Hanna DMD's Expert Contributions
  • 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.
