Is It Necessary To Have My Braces Removed To Get Fillings
Depends: My colleague is correct. It depends upon where the cavity is. To add a bit more information, it is entirely unlikely that more than one brace (perhaps 2) would be removed for such a procedure, and if it is on the biting surface of the tooth, removal will not likely be needed at all. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fillings and braces: The answer to your question depends on what tooth needs a filling and why type of filling is required. The short answer is probably yes. However, a brace or two or three many be required to be removed to properly restore the tooth that requires the filling. Ask your dentist to speak to your orthodontic specialist for specifics. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Absolutely: Once braces are placed on your teeth, many surfaces of the teeth are covered by brackets and wires. This makes cleaning your teeth more difficult and makes your teeth more susceptible to cavities. Existing cavities will also grow bigger in these circumstances. So it is very important to get all your cavities removed and filled before getting your braces. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Flexure ; Acid: Drilling irritates a tooth, so you may have discomfort afterwards. If you have white fillings, acid was used before placing the filling; if this acid lingers, then you will have discomfort. Also, white fillings change shape slightly when they solidify, so they can pull and flex the tooth, causing discomfort. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Dull sensation: With local anesthetics, dental treatment pain is the stuff of mythology and hysteria--if and only if you don't wait until dental disease is a full blown infection. In some advanced, abscess cases, anesthetic doesn't work 100%. In those cases, i'll prescribe antibiotics and home care remedies until infection subsides and then provide therapy. Much more confortable for both of us! ...Read more
Did i need a pulpecomy? I had no symptoms at all: no pain, no discomfort. I was there to get fillings, but dentist suddenly told me i needed it.
Pulp exposure: While performing the procedure, the pulp was probably exposed. The pulp may not have been diseased, but if it is exposed, it will become diseased it most cases.

Don't hesitate to ask your dentist about your case. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Yes, but not always: Yes, depending on how much tooth structure is missing. If the tooth still has a fair amount of tooth structure left, then you can get away by placing another filling, but if not, then you need a crown. But be aware that even if you place a filling, there might still be a chance that it may fracture and you may need a crown. If finances allows you to get a crown then that would be ideal choice. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
If you have one cavity can you get a filling at when the dentist do the filling can they give you braces that same day
Technically yes..: .. but practically speaking, probably not. Your orthodontist does not restore teeth, and if your general dentist is placing the appliances, it would most likely be done after all of your restorative treatment has been completed.

I have to get a dental filling after school was wondering if there is something i could be given to get rid of the lidocaine that medicare could pay
Time: Are you asking if there's something that will make the lidocaine wear off sooner? No such product exists - you just have to give it time. If the numbness bothers you and it is just one tooth, you could talk to your dentist about doing a more localized infiltration vs a nerve block. Perhaps a dentist here could weigh in? ...Read more
The dental assistance said i might need to drill two back teeth to get fillings why? I went to the dentist the other day and the dental assistance checked out my teeth and said that two back teeth were sticky and would probably need to be drilled and fill
ASK dentist: Though an assistant may have excellent skills, they are trained for a short time. The assistant may be correct, but the dentist has the proper training to evaluate the need for a filling. Sometimes the biting surface grooves get sticky and used to be filled always, sometimes smoothing of the enamel (called enameloplasty) can remove the problem and make the area self cleansing. The dentist knows! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I have a dentist appointment tomorrow in the morning to get fillings. If i take laughing gas will i be okay to go back to school the same day?
Laughing gas: Nitrous oxide-laughing gas-is rapidly removed from the body following the procedure. Near the end of your appointment the dentist will take you of the nitrous and return you to 100% oxygen. Within 3-5 minutes the nitrous will be all out of your lungs. You should be fine for the afternoon volleyball game. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
