John Zalesky's Expert Contributions
  • When will my dentures stop hurting?

    They do take some time to adjust to but I would contact the doctor that made them as it is very likely you need an adjustment to alleviate sore spots. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • What helps sore gums after teeth cleaning?

    The best thing is a warm salt waiter rinse 3x/day. This promotes healing and the tightening up of the gum tissue. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • Should you wear a retainer every day?

    Yes, usually recommend wearing every night as teeth are prone to shifting and relapse after getting braces removed. READ MORE

  • Sporadic symptoms?

    I would seek immediate medical attention. READ MORE

  • What can I do for bleeding gums?

    Most of the time bleeding gums indicates gingivitis and/or periodontal disease. Best thing to do is schedule an appointment for an evaluation. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • Why do I need an oral surgeon to remove my wisdom teeth?

    Hi! Wisdom teeth are unique. A lot of general dentists do not have the training to remove wisdom teeth and/or are not comfortable removing them. They can be difficult depending on their position in the jaw and/or proximity to the main nerve in your lower jaw. Based on this, an oral surgeon is a good referral to make a patient more comfortable for difficult surgeries. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • How long does it take for implants to fuse to the bone?

    Usually between 3-4 months but depending to bone quality when the implant was placed I have waited up to 6 months to restore the implant(s) with a tooth or prosthesis. I also take into account and medical conditions the Pt has (diabetes, blood or bone type conditions) which can contribute to delayed healing. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • Is it normal to have gums pain after a filling?

    To be honest, yes and no. There are a lot of variables to consider. It depends how big and how deep the filling is. Sometimes the gum has to me manipulated or removed depending on location or depth/severity of the filling. The best thing to do is a warm salt water rinse and not over floss the area to allow it to heal. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • What can I do for gingivitis?

    There are. Couple things that are a must. First is routine cleaning by your dentist. Second is diligent home care. Brushing two/three times per day along with flossing and use of a Waterpik is great. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • How can I treat an infected tooth without a root canal?

    You cannot. An infection needs to be properly treated. Antibiotics will only help subdue symptoms for a short time until the tooth is treated. In some cases, if the infection is large the tooth may need to be removed. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • How long does discomfort from braces last?

    It usually lasts a few days and will then subside. The first few days are the most pressure on the teeth for movement. Each time the wire is tightened or color bands are changed it might be a little uncomfortable. What you are inquiring about is normal. READ MORE

  • How long after dental implants can I eat normal food?

    This is a very broad question. It depends on whether you had a single implant or multiple implants. Your practitioner should have gone over post-op instructions. Some implant surgeries are very simple and others complicated. It also depends on where the location of the implant is and if a temporary tooth was put on the implant (I.e. a front tooth). I would use caution and consult the doctor who did the surgery. READ MORE

  • Should I take pain medicine before dental implant?

    I have found that there is no need for prescription pain medication. Most patients say they have taken a small dose of Ibuprofen or Tylenol after the procedure and they have been fine. READ MORE

  • Can I get 4 dental implants at once?

    It is possible to get 4 implants at once, however, there are a lot of variables both medically and dentally. Implants are a very technique-sensitive procedure. I would make sure your dental practitioner obtains an honest and accurate medical history as well as proper 3D imaging to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. Pre-appointment planning and measuring the site for an implant is vital to the long-term success of the procedure. READ MORE

  • What can I eat with the molar crown?

    You should be able to eat normal things and care for it the same way you care for a normal tooth (brush/floss/Waterpik, etc.). Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • Can a partial denture be attached to an implant?

    Yes, they absolutely can, provided you have adequate bone for implant placement. There are attachments that go on the implant that allows the denture to snap on to it for stability. I recommend an evaluation by your dentist. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • How many days rest after dental implant?

    Depends on how extensive the implant surgery is (single implant vs. multiple). When I perform implant surgeries there is usually minimal discomfort, however, if multiple implants are being placed and tissue has to be manipulated there usually is more post operative discomfort. As with any surgery, I would advise taking it easy for a day or two afterwords to keep your blood pressure lower. Over the counter pain medication is a big help. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE

  • Why are my gums swollen after deep cleaning?

    It is not uncommon for your gums to be a little swollen. I would rinse with warm salt water. If it persists I would contact the dentist office for them to take a look. Best regards, John Zalesky, DMD, MBS, FICOI Colorado AGD President READ MORE
