Doctor insights on:
Depends on: The problem. If just decay then a filling should do. If deep decay then perhaps removal of some of the decay with a sedative dressing being placed to allow the root to finish formation and in 6 months a final filling with removal of the remaining decay, sometimes a root canal with apexification so the root finishes forming. As always brushing is paramount. ...Read more

What are the chances of teeth moving into the spot in which a bicuspid tooth was extracted? 21 years of age?
Pretty good: There is a pretty good chance that your teeth will shift somewhat over an extended period of time. Posterior teeth tend to lean mesially and opposing teeth super-erupt into the space. Replacement would be wise to maintain a healthy mouth. ...Read more

I need a root canal in top right bicuspid. Its sensitive to eat on that side bc of the tooth. Pull, or save it? Would other teeth shift into the spot?
Save it: Other teeth may drift into the defect, but will not be straight. Food trap will cause periodontal problems in the long run. It will cost more to replace it than fix it. ...Read more
I lost two of my lower bicuspid teeth on both sides. Can I use braces to fix the gap? I don't think I need tooth extraction because my teeth are not crowded.
Criteria: As a 19 year old, if the rest of your teeth are in correct position, and your occlusion (bite) is normal, it would be best to replace those missing teeth with implant supported crowns and as soon as possible to prevent drifting of your remaining teeth. Otherwise I recommend that you consult with both an orthodontist and restorative dentist to work as a team & decide what treatment is best for you. ...Read more
Had a root canal in a bicuspid, to be crowned. Recently the tooth and that side of my jaw feeling tired, sign of infection?
When was root canal?: How long ago was the root canal performed on the tooth? What is on the tooth now? Was the tooth infected at the time? Did you need antibiotics? Was it done by a specialist? Please make sure you have an x-ray before the crown is placed as soon as possible to prevent potential pain and swelling. Good luck! ...Read more

Replace It.: When a molar is extracted and not replaced soon after, it will lean forward naturally to the space in front. Please have it replaced with a dental implant or a bridge. A missing tooth can cause many other problems to the surrounding teeth and your oral health can be compromised. ...Read more

Tooth sensitive but no holes or blackness. X Ray shows shadow (decay)of 2nd premolar nearing upto nerve. Filling suggested but risk of RCT. Advice pls?
Follow: Follow your Dentist's advice. Just because you can't see tooth damage w naked eye doesn't mean there isn't one. Imaging revealed deep cavity. Infected tooth material must be removed to prevent abscess. If root canal treatment is required have it done. The alternative is to wait and be exposed to serious complications. ...Read more
I have one premolar tooth and one molar in my ur, side-by-side. Can you tell me about a snap-on for esthetics and not about implants, at this time?
Partial dentures but: While removable partial dentures are an option, few dentists take the time to re-shape the "holding" teeth and even if they do, their dental labs may not utilize the design detail. What you need to ask for is a removable partial denture that's been "surveyed" for cast metal clasps and rest seats. Good ddss and prosthodontists still do this but it will cost! Floss daily or lose your other teeth! ...Read more

I got top right 2nd bicuspid removed I don't want my teeth to shift and I can't afford a particals what else can I do I'm scared?
Take a popsicle stick trim it so it just fits the space. Two or three times a day check that you can still fit the stick in place. Every time you go more than 10 hrs without using the stick you will loose some space.
Well you asked...That will keep the teeth from moving for free. Don't know what you are scared of? Yes, teeth will shift, but will it be significant? Varies quite a bit. ...Read more

Size of container: Cant put 2 quarts int a 1 quart container. 30% of all orthodontic patients have too much tooth material for the amount of bone they have in their jaws.

Two of my permanent teeth never grew (lower second premolars). I am 17 years old. Is that normal? Can you live just as well without those?
More than one answer: First, "Is it normal? " It's uncommon but not abnormal. Second, if you haven't had any problems so far, you should be able to live well without them. Not being privy to you dental x-rays, I don't know if the teeth are there but haven't erupted and I don't know if you have 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) Based on x-rays, your dentist can predict if you might need dental work in the future. ...Read more
