I have been smoking crack cocaine since 9:30am today and at 3:30pm I have a dental appointment where I will be put under local anesthesia. My Risks?
Tell your dentist: Because they might want to avoid local anesthetic with epinepherine, as the combination could cause a dangerous rise in heart rate. The bigger issue at hand is the fact that you're smoking crack in the first place. Please seek treatment for your addiction issues. Crack is very dangerous, and if you keep doing it, your health issues will be much worse than local anesthetic. ...Read more

NO: You definitely do not want to smoke pot before getting wisdom teeth removed. The smoke actually irritates your lungs and airways (that's why you cough when smoking) and can make anesthesia more dangerous. In addition, it is a depressant, so it makes it hard to guess drug interactions. The only medicine used for anesthesia is what the doctor gives. ...Read more
Yes: Braces make it more difficult to clean the surfaces of your teeth. Also the cement used on the brackets is porous and has a tendency of absorbing stains and smoke.

Not Really: Tooth recontouring and/or reshaping is done only to enhance esthetics. For example, if one of your front teeth is too long, or has a rough endge, reshaping and polishing that will make it more attractive. Cracked and broken teeth can be fixed, but they will require different treatment. Your dentist can advise you about all your options, which are pretty amazing nowadays. All the best. ...Read more
Cigars: Smoking does not directly result in dental caries. However, it does produce surface deposits that can lead to the accumulation of food debris that will promote tooth decay. More importantly, you increase your risk of oral cancer which is something I would be really concerned about. See a dentist every six months for a dental exam and oral cancer screening! Stop smoking! ...Read more
Smoking and?: Personally, I would worry more about getting oral cancer and other medical ailments, and perhaps one day dying from smoking than if putting aluminum foil on my teeth is safe or not. Cancer and dying is worse than stains on your teeth. These are your choices and you will have to live (or die) with the decisions that you make. Think about it. Is it really worth the risk? ...Read more

Look amazing soon: Dentistry can now offer so many options that are beautiful and natural. If your teeth needs restorations, it is likely that they look even better than before treatment.

The sooner, the more options you'll have. ...Read more
How easy is it for teeth to get cracked? I turned my head suddenly and my bottom teeth were sliding against my top teeth. Are my teeth cracked?
Not Easily: But if traumatized by impact, grinding, or compromised by caries, they can chip or crack more readily. Enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but can still break if enough force is applied. Diamonds and granite are harder than enamel, but they too can be broken. If you grind, wear a bruxism guard to protect your teeth, and don't use them as tools. ...Read more
Under mybrige, lower front, 4 teeth middle, it appears that the tooth on my left broke/cracked... Should this happen all I did was lightly clinch my teeth fron to back by chewing dinner
While: While it is likely that it should not, it is entirely possible it could. Crowns and bridges help teeth, but they are not bulletproof. While dentists do our best to fix teeth, nothing we do lasts forever. See your dentist asap to limit damages and future costs. ...Read more
Structural failure: For the same reason cracks go through wood, stone, plastic and glass. Or any other solid. Common cause of tooth cracks are amalgam silver-mercury fillings or acute trauma like getting hit in the teeth or biting on something hard quickly (olive pit). ...Read more
Yes!: If you think your teeth are darkening and discolored, just think about what is happening to your mouth, tongue, throat and lungs. Those things destroy all the cells over time. Stop now while you still can! ...Read more
Maybe a night guard: All of our teeth develop tiny cracks in them over time. These are superficial and not structural. If the visible cracks are more prominent they may be a result of damaging force applied during periods of clenching and/or grinding. This often occurs unconsciously and frequently during sleep. It can be managed by wearing a "nite guard". Have your dentist check the areas of concern. ...Read more
See a dentist: Sometimes cracked teeth are obvious. Sometimes they may have micro-fractures. Best to check with a dentist who works in microscopic loupes. Silver mercury fillings expand and contract. Combine that with a person who grinds their teeth and you have a recipe for fracture. ...Read more
Teeth cracks: It may mean that they are weakened and more prone to fracture, especially in the back teeth that have more stress. However it is not abnormal to see fine cracks (called crazing lines) in anterior teeth. Most of the time we just leave these alone and observe for symptoms - such as sensitivity to biting. When this happens, veneers or some kind of bonded porcelain restoration is your best bet. ...Read more

2 things: May be one or both of 2 things. As we wear down our front teeth over time, the enamel on the top edge wears away. This exposes the softer more yellow/brn/orange dentin. Just like a pothole in the road, the dentin wears away leaving the enamel unsupported, which eventually chips. Also, the dentin stains. Easy to fix with filling. Also formed as teeth age are vertical craze lines which may stain. ...Read more
