It depends if there is adequate bone/ridge width 3 dimensionally then yes, it could be. Not everyone has adequate width, hence doctors recommend bone grafting procedure either at the time of dental implant placement or prior to obtain good long term prognosis of the dental implants READ MORE
Hello! I am a believer of vaccination and I personally have been vaccinated with the HPV vaccine. I believe HPV has recommendations that it should be vaccinated between certain age range for optimum effect.

Call his general dentist or dental specialist that he sees and have them see him on an urgent care basis, or see if they will call it in for him. But, make sure he sees his doctor as soon as possible before it gets worse. READ MORE
Yes, any dentist, as long as they are licensed practitioners, can remove or extract infected tooth, but it can depend on the severity of the scenario, and in this scenario, they will refer you to either an oral surgeon or periodontist. READ MORE
Not usually, only if the dentist/periodontist makes that assessment based on the nature of bone loss and presence of pus coming out between your gums or any other factor they deem it necessary READ MORE
No not necessarily, if they do then I am unaware of that research and have not come across it. READ MORE
Hello! There could be a couple of reasons: 1. Genetics 2. Hereditary 3. Naturally your gums are of thin biotype 4. Brushing habits 5. It could be a combination of the above factors There is treatment for receding gums, and it is recommended that you get it taken care of when the recession is amenable to regeneration techniques. Hope this helps. READ MORE
If all 4 teeth are in the same area, then yes, best to get it all done in one time. If they are in two different sides of the mouth, then for comfort, get the right side first and then the left side. READ MORE
None of the above conditions you have mentioned are contraindications. So, I would recommend take the advice of your doctor. READ MORE
Hello! It takes about a minimum of a month to the soft tissue procedure heal, adapt and even after that there will be few changes. As long as you have root coverage that you sought out for, you should be fine, as you get from anywhere from a 100% to 75% coverage. Try not to look at it too much, just apply some H2O2 to keep it clean and let the body do the healing process. Also, as I have not seen the area personally, keep follow up appointments with the periodontist/dental surgeon who completed the procedure. Hope this helps. Let me know if there any other question you have. READ MORE
Depends on your pain tolerance level, as everyones is different. - With root canal, you have the ability to save the tooth. Saving is always better than a more definitive option of extracting the tooth. - with root canal the pain with eventually stop after a proper root canal is completed, where as with extraction there will be some post operative pain as well, so take that into account always. Hope this helps. READ MORE
There are couple of options, depending on the extent of decay: - They could remove the existing crown, and redo another crown, incorporating a the decay. - They could remove the existing crown and perform something that is called a crown lengthening procedure to reduce the bone around to gain more access to the decay/natural tooth structure to make a new crown - If the decay is too deep then may need to extracted and do a socket bone grafting procedure and place a dental implant. *** You may need a root canal treatment with the first two options*** READ MORE
It is a bit vague question: Chronic consistent low level pain, or throbbing pain which comes on during certain times of the day or there is stimuli like cold beverages or eating hard food in the area. There could also be radiating pain to the jaw or head READ MORE
Yes it can. Dental implants do not have the same structures as natural tooth, so there are higher chances of developing infection around a dental implant than natural tooth. Hence, have proper recall program between the dentist and periodontist to minimize the infection READ MORE
