Relax: Take a deep breath. What you feel is very normal. Having removed thousands of teeth on thousands of patients over the years I can give you some perspective. The overall vast majority of patients tell me after the procedure, "that’s it? They’re out? "i didn't feel a thing! " and that was with just using a local anesthetic to numb them up. I also suggest you express your concerns to your dentist. ...Read more

Doctor im 18yrs old and my third molar teeth is paining too much what could be the cause for it? ..

See Oral Surgeon: In most cases, there is not enough room for the third molars (wisdom teeth) to properly fit in the mouth.

See the Oral Surgeon ASAP to get examined and find out your best treatment options. Good Luck. ...Read more

Is it good to wear braces if my molar teeth hasn't grown yet?

Is it good to wear braces if my molar teeth hasn't grown yet?

Depends on problem: For skeletal discrepancies that cause a growth imbalance in the face, early correction of the skeletal problem is a good idea. This can involve braces and probably some additional appliaces. Without a skeletal problem, if the malocclusion can simply be corrected with braces, it is generally better to wait till the 12 year molars are in. Except at times teeth may need to be moved to allow molars in. ...Read more

I am curious to know why 4 unit new porcelain bridge on molar teeth breaks that easy while just eating soft sandwich. What should I replace it with.

Bad bridge.: A new bridge should not break eating a sandwich. Something was wrong w/ its fabrication. If you don't want another bridge, the very best way to replace missing teeth, if possible, are implants supporting single crowns. They are easier to clean, never get cavities, look great and feel natural. That's the way i'd replace any missing tooth! ...Read more
