  • How often should you get a deep cleaning with implants?

    Normal cleaning is every 6 months. This is must. If you have inflamed gums or you have some pocketing, it's good to have a cleaning every 3 months. Most insurances only pay 2 cleanings in one year, so you can check with the insurance what covers. It's okay to have 6-month cleanings even with implants provided you are good in brushing, flossing, and your gums are healthy. READ MORE

  • What is the easiest tooth to extract?

    If tooth is aligned, not very brittle as root canal treated teeth are difficult sometimes, you have to section it. Nothing is difficult if teeth are angulated and impacted, YES, it would be surgical. If the tooth needs to be extracted, it needs to be extracted. Dentist would try to do a simple extraction or we do section the tooth and take the tooth out in 2 or 3 pieces. Simple or surgical extraction, it depends and varies from patient to patient. We will look clinically and radiographically and will see how it will go. Deciduous teeth are easy like baby teeth. And age matters in extraction, too. Shape of the roots and bone level. All factors count here, so no worries. If you need extraction, just go for it. No worries. We are here to help. Good luck. READ MORE

  • How does a dentist know you need a root canal?

    We have to take proper history regarding pain or swelling. Clinically and radiographically, a dentist can tell what is going on in the tooth. There are special diagnostic tests for pulp vitality. These are diagnostic tests which tell us about the tooth's life, meaning either if the tooth is already dead or dying. Proper diagnosis about RCT involves patient history, clinical exam and X-ray and diagnostic pulp vitality tools. You can see sometimes on the X-ray radiolucency/darkness at the apex/root of the tooth. Always discuss with your dentist about it. Don't you worry. It's a very simple procedure. If tooth needs RCT, don't hesitate. READ MORE

  • Can you reverse tooth decay naturally?

    It all depends on the tooth decay extension, which means how much tooth decay you have. We have 3 protective layers, mainly enamel and dentine. If cavity is still outer third or half of the enamel, we can remineralize the tooth decay. YES, prescription FL mouth rinse and toothpastes can help with that. Mainly and mostly if we have root caries, we have to use SDF or some other fluoride techniques to remineralize the enamel. Otherwise, we can stop caries progression with some more methods including varnishes, rinses and pastes. If tooth decay is deep and into dentine and the patient has a sensitivity issue, better to get restoration. It all depends on the tooth condition and oral hygiene. Don't hesitate to visit the dentist. READ MORE

  • Can you see tooth decay on an X-ray?

    Yes, we can see tooth decay on the X-ray. Ideally, the dentist will have to see clinically and radiographically to make a proper diagnosis about tooth decay. Sometimes a patient has a cavity and it's not very prominent on the X-ray. It depends, and sometimes X-rays show us some decay in the tooth and clinically you even cannot say that it's a cavity. So, a dentist will have to check clinically and radiographically both ways to make a decision if it has a cavity or not. READ MORE

  • Is an X-ray required for braces?

    Yes. Ideally, we need an oral examination, clinical and radiographically. We take X-rays first. We need a detailed dental and oral examination before braces. READ MORE
