  • Do dentures affect your gums?

    Dentures can affect your gums, especially if there are rough areas of the dentures, or if they don't fit quite well. Depending on what area of your gums are hurting, your general Dentist can help you fix them so they don't cause unnecessary pain/discomfort. READ MORE

  • How can I remove tartar from my teeth without going to the dentist?

    Your home-care is extremely important when it comes to preventing tartar buildup. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash that prevents tartar buildup (this will be written on the bottle). HOWEVER, even with pristine home care, it is imperative that you go to your dentist at least 2 times a year for a professional cleaning. This does two things: it allows the professional hygienist thoroughly clean your teeth so as to remove any tartar buildup that you may have missed, and it allows your general Dentist to do a checkup to make sure you don't have any cavities or other problems. READ MORE

  • Can you get anesthesia to have sealants added?

    Yes, you can. Sealants are extremely non-invasive, and so most Dentists will not recommend having anesthetic. However, if you are uncomfortable with the idea of having your teeth worked on without the numbing, you're absolutely able to elect to have anesthetic. READ MORE

  • Can you fix a front teeth gap?

    Of course you can! There are a couple of ways to do this. One way would be traditional braces with and Orthodontist. The other way would be to work with a general Dentist to have the gap closed with clear aligner therapy such as Invisalign. Ultimately, the degree of movement of your teeth will dictate what method will best work, but that will require a consultation with your general Dentist, as long as they are appropriately certified to provide Invisalign therapy. (shameless plug: I have completed the advanced training in Invisalign therapy and am happy to do an evaluation for free in my office) READ MORE

  • What if there is not enough tooth for a crown?

    Unfortunately, if there is not enough tooth structure for a crown, it will likely need to be pulled. Ultimately, this is something you should discuss with your general dentist to be further evaluated and have treatment planned accordingly. READ MORE

  • Are tooth fillings canceled because of the coronavirus?

    At this time, the American Dental Association is recommending that only emergency dental procedures be performed. These include root canals, abscesses, and facial trauma. The ADA has tentatively set April 26th as the date when non-emergent procedures can be performed. Keep in touch with your general Dentist to see if this date changes. READ MORE

  • Is a fissure sealant a filling?

    A fissure sealant is a type of filling that is preventative, rather than a traditional filling, which is placed to fill a hole that was formed by a bacterial cavity. The good thing about sealants is that they prevent the bacteria from growing in the little "nooks and crannies" in your tooth, and therefore, lessen the likelihood of you getting a cavity in the future. Also, you don't need numbing medicine to have a sealant placed. :) READ MORE

  • Should adults get sealants on their teeth?

    Absolutely!! A sealant is a type of filling that is preventative. The good thing about sealants is that they prevent the bacteria from growing in the little "nooks and crannies" in your tooth, and therefore, lessen the likelihood of you getting a cavity in the future. Also, you don't need numbing medicine to have a sealant placed. :) READ MORE

  • How do dentists put sealants on teeth?

    Sealants are placed by the Dentist using a bur to slightly "roughen up" the tooth structure, then a series of materials are "painted" onto the surface of the tooth. The process is quick, and no numbing medicine is necessary. READ MORE

  • Can sealants cause cavities?

    No. In fact, the purpose of sealants is to prevent cavities from forming on teeth. This is exactly why I advise all my patients to get sealants! READ MORE

  • How long does a sealant procedure take?

    Sealants are placed by the Dentist using a bur to slightly "roughen up" the tooth structure, then a series of materials are "painted" onto the surface of the tooth. The process is quick, and no numbing medicine is necessary. Usually 20minutes or less, depending on the Dentist and their assistants. READ MORE

  • Do sealants really prevent cavities?

    Absolutely! The good thing about sealants is that they prevent the bacteria from growing in the little "nooks and crannies" in your tooth, and therefore, lessen the likelihood of you getting a cavity in the future. Also, you don't need numbing medicine to have a sealant placed. :) READ MORE

  • Why do my teeth hurt after sealants?

    Sometimes, teeth will feel a little sensitive for a while after getting sealants. This is usually because they are trying to get used to having the material there, and this can sometimes cause them to hurt a little. This should go away after a few days. READ MORE

  • Can adults get Invisalign?

    Absolutely! Invisalign is a great, esthetic choice for adult patients who want to have braces, but without all the wires. Ultimately, this is something you should discuss with your general Dentist to be further evaluated and treatment planned accordingly. READ MORE

  • What is the difference between sealants and fillings?

    A sealant is a type of filling that is preventative, rather than a traditional filling, which is placed to fill a hole that was formed by a bacterial cavity. The good thing about sealants is that they prevent the bacteria from growing in the little "nooks and crannies" in your tooth, and therefore, lessen the likelihood of you getting a cavity in the future. Also, you don't need numbing medicine to have a sealant placed. :) READ MORE

  • Why do my teeth have deep grooves?

    This is a developmental feature of teeth. The deep grooves will sometimes go away over time if the teeth have fillings, or if the patient has clenching/grinding habits. At age 28, if you still have deep grooves, you likely don't have the above mentioned conditions. Another thing to consider is what type of bite you have. If your teeth aren't coming together in perfect harmony, this will sometimes prevent "normal" wear to the teeth, and will keep the deep grooves intact. Ultimately, this is something you should discuss with your general Dentist to be further evaluated and treatment planned accordingly. READ MORE

  • How is a fissure sealant done?

    Sealants are placed by the Dentist using a bur to slightly "roughen up" the tooth structure, then a series of materials are "painted" onto the surface of the tooth. The process is quick, and no numbing medicine is necessary. READ MORE

  • How do dentists fix cavity on side of tooth?

    The Dentist can fix a cavity on the side of the tooth by getting your tooth numb, using a bur to remove the cavity, then use different materials to bond a tooth-colored filling to the tooth. Sometimes, depending on the size and location of the cavity, different treatments, such as onlays or crowns, may be necessary. Ultimately, this is something you should discuss with your general Dentist to be further evaluated and treatment planned accordingly. READ MORE

  • Do pits in teeth need to be filled?

    Absolutely! This is done by placing sealants. The good thing about sealants is that they prevent the bacteria from growing in the little "nooks and crannies" in your tooth, and therefore, lessen the likelihood of you getting a cavity in the future. Also, you don't need numbing medicine to have a sealant placed. :) READ MORE

  • Can you leave a dead tooth in your mouth?

    Absolutely not. A dead tooth holds bacteria in it, and eventually can cause an abscess. Leaving a dead tooth in the mouth is just a series of bad events waiting to happen. Ultimately, this is something you should discuss with your general Dentist to be further evaluated and treatment planned accordingly. READ MORE
