Simple answer? No. There are many causes for toothaches and sometimes infections do not cause a toothache. The key is proper diagnosis, which usually means necessary and appropriate X-rays, a detailed history of the problem, a review of your medical history, your past dental history, prior X-rays, and then usually some clinical tests and examination. There is no substitute for diagnosis and it takes time, experience, information gathering, and testing. Sonny READ MORE
Tricky question ... there are some minor things that can be corrected at a young age. Also, by using the word "braces," are we only talking about metal things that go on the front side of teeth? Sometimes a child can benefit from an early intervention into correcting a bad situation, such as irregular jaw relationships, improper arch sizes or developments.

What sealants do is provide a barrier of protection against plaque and acids that are produced inside the grooves of teeth. It’s like a Saran Wrap layer on the deep crevices.

It’s by no means bullet proof but it does provide and added layer of defense against acid attack and dental cavities. Sonny READ MORE
To strengthen your enamel requires the use of fluoride. This comes in many different forms, gel, toothpaste, rinses, etc. Using fluoride can help remineralize weakened enamel and also strengthen existing enamel. Check with your dentist to find the right form for you and the right dosage; too much is not good either. Sonny READ MORE
Many times cold sores, especially recurrent ones, are from a virus: Herpes. Many times it appears as a clear “vesicle” lesion, or rather a clear elevated "bubble-looking" sore. It usually runs its course and is gone in two weeks. Sonny READ MORE
Tough question . With a lot of TMJ issues extreme jaw movements create difficulties if not additional trauma to the disc and joint itself. Not sure exactly what problems you had with your TM Joint but trying to limit full extensions of the jaw will surely help. Joint noise is never a good sign but doesn't mean it's permanently a problem . You may need to revisit your Dr that helped treat your TMJ problems. READ MORE
