Dr. Saul Escala DDS's Expert Contributions
Not Always. In some cases antibiotics are necessary if there is an abscess/infection/swelling and that was the reason for needing a root canal. Other times, root canals can be done due to trauma to the tooth with no infection and in those cases antibiotics wont be necessary. Saul Escala, DDS READ MORE
Crowns on the front teeth can look really natural. There are different types of materials that can be use for crowns. Porcelain is a material that can be use for crowns and can create amazing natural results. Saul Escala READ MORE
Sometimes a root canal treatment is required on teeth that have crowns. Check with your Dentist, you may need a root canal in addition to the crown. Other things to look at will be if the crown is seating a little high, which in that case a simple adjustment will take care of the problem. I hope that helps. READ MORE
Bleeding while brushing is an indication of gingivitis (gum inflammation/disease) and/or Periodontitis (gum disease with bone loss). I would strongly recommend you go see a dentist for a professional evaluation and dental cleaning. That will help you. In the meantime, you can do salt water rinses at home 5 times a day for 5 days and the bleeding will reduce. But seeing a dentist soon ultimately will help you stop the progression of the disease and save your teeth. READ MORE
For most cases, electric toothbrushes are an amazing alternative for better oral hygiene at home. I recommend. READ MORE
Salt water rinses 4-5 times a day for few days helps a lot with the inflammation and bleeding. However, besides having good oral hygiene at home, it is important to see a dentist frequently because many times the cause of bleeding and inflammation is caused by Bacteria leaving in the mouth that only a professional cleaning can remove.

That's great You are not having any pain right now. Typically, it is recommended first 24 hours to eat and drink only cold things and only soft diet. Then After 24 - 48 hours you can eat and drink warm things but still soft diet. You can start with more solid food at day 3, specially since you are having no symptoms. READ MORE
There are different reasons why a person experience teeth sensitivity. If the sensitive-teeth toothpaste is not helping you, it is important to evaluate other reasons. For example, gum recession with partial exposure on the root or dry mouth. At times, other treatments are necessary when sensitive-teeth toothpaste alone doesn't solve the problem. Consult with a dentist about other alternatives that may be helpful. READ MORE
Sore gums after a dental cleaning sometimes could happen if a little more detail cleaning was needed on your last appointment compare to previous appointments you had with your dentist. I would recommend that you start rinsing with warm salt water at least 3-5 times a day for the next 3-5 days. Also , take some over the counter mild analgesics like ibuprofen to alleviate the discomfort. I hope you start feeling better soon. READ MORE
