I have a rotten tooth on the top right of my mouth. I hate the dentist will i need my tooth taken out i so will i be allowed to be put asleep ?

That can be arranged: Consult with an oral surgeon for the extraction of that tooth and discuss with him you desire for sedation. Because precautions need to be taken 24 hours in advance of sedation and a medical history must be taken to minimize your risks from sedation , you can't just go to an oral surgeon for same day sedation and extraction without a consult. ...Read more

Simply having a crown on a tooth does not mean you don't have to have good brushing and maintenance. Keep smiling! ...Read more

When children have rotten baby teeth do they take longer to fall out curious

When children have rotten baby teeth do they take longer to fall out curious

If : If a baby or child’s tooth or teeth are rotted; do not recommend that it be handled by removing it yourself or just waiting for it to fall out. Each place where there is a baby tooth, an adult tooth will grow in as the child gets older. It the baby tooth comes out too early, surrounding teeth may start to move into that spot. By, the time that the adult tooth comes in there may not be enough room for it, so that the tooth grows in crooked. If the child has rotten teeth, this can negatively impact self esteem. The baby teeth need to be in place so that the child can chew properly and for the development of his or her speech. A baby tooth that is rotten should be evaluated by a dentist who may elect to fill the cavity, put on a crown or in some cases pull the tooth (possibly putting in a bridge). If the child does not get dental care, this could lead to tooth pain and infection. A rotten tooth should not take longer to fall out. ...Read more
