  • Why a Deep Dental Cleaning?

  • How long will my mouth hurt after a root canal?

    After a root canal procedure, it is normal to experience some discomfort in the treated area for a few days. However you could take ibuprofen or Tylenol to alleviate the discomfort. Remember, just like any other part of your body that has wound your mouth all needs time to heal. READ MORE

  • X-ray shows dark area at root tip advised to have a root canal, but have never had any symptoms should I wait

    To ensure the best outcome for your oral health, it is generally advisable to follow the advice of your dental professional. They have evaluated your X-rays, identified the presence of a dark area at the root tip, and recommended a root canal based on their clinical expertise and diagnostic findings. It is crucial to address potential dental issues promptly to prevent further complications and to preserve the affected tooth whenever possible. It's recommended to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with your dentist or endodontist. They can provide more detailed information about the specific condition of your tooth, explain the potential risks of delaying treatment, and address any additional queries you may have. READ MORE

  • How do you avoid a root canal after a filling?

    In certain cases, a root canal may be necessary even after a filling if the cavity is extensive and reaches close to the pulp, where the nerve is located. When the decay is deep and the nerve is exposed or traumatized during the process of removing the decay, it increases the likelihood of requiring a root canal procedure. While every effort is made to preserve the tooth and avoid a root canal, the severity of the decay and the extent of nerve involvement can influence the outcome. It's important to note that a filling is typically the first treatment option to address a cavity. However, if the decay is extensive and reaches the inner portion of the tooth, where the nerve is housed, it can lead to nerve damage or infection. In such cases, a root canal may be necessary to remove the infected or damaged nerve tissue and alleviate any associated pain or infection. READ MORE

  • Abscess

    I strongly recommend contacting your dentist as soon as possible to have the abscess evaluated and treated appropriately. They will be able to diagnose the cause of the abscess, prescribe appropriate antibiotics if necessary, and determine the most appropriate treatment plan, which may involve draining the abscess and potentially performing root canal therapy or tooth extraction, depending on the severity of the infection.

  • Is Invisalign treatment safe?

    Yes, Invisalign treatment is safe. Invisalign aligners are made from a medical-grade thermoplastic material that is BPA-free and FDA-approved for use in dental and orthodontic applications. Additionally, Invisalign treatment does not involve the use of metal brackets or wires, making it a comfortable and convenient option for many patients. However, as with any medical or dental procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects associated with Invisalign treatment, such as mild discomfort since the aligners are moving your teeth. It is important to discuss these with your dentist or orthodontist before beginning treatment. But a very detailed treatment plan is created before treatment starts READ MORE
