  • Wisdom teeth removal

    Any general dentist can remove wisdom teeth if he or she feels comfortable enough doing so. In my office, we don't offer sedation...so if a patient wants to be put to sleep to get their wisdom teeth extracted or if the case is too difficult, we refer to an oral surgeon. READ MORE

  • I can't fix my teeth sensitivity. What do I do?

    Continue to use the sensitivity toothpastes. Try not rinsing your mouth with water afterwards. Just spit after brushing and allow the toothpaste in your saliva to sit on your teeth a little longer. Also stay away from acidic foods and drinks that can cause acid erosion, leading to extra sensitivity. READ MORE
