I am 22 and my teeth keep breaking/chipping. Front teeth and back teeth. No pain until a tooth breaks then it hurts for a bit but the pain goes away.?

Get to a dentist: Hard to say why your teeth are breaking so easily- grinding, clenching, decay, poor hygiene, etc. You need to be proactive, see a dentist and repair the broken teeth and learn to take care of all the teeth. If grinding/clenching- find out the source and hopefully solve the issue and consider a possible mouthpiece to protect the teeth after treatment is complete. ...Read more

I have damaged tooth enamel, you can see through the edges of my front teeth. How can I fix this?

I have damaged tooth enamel, you can see through the edges of my front teeth. How can I fix this?

First: See your dentist for an evaluation of your bite and I would suggest a visit to the orthodontist for evaluation. Once the three of you have a plan then proceed. Many times I have the orthodontist leave me room to restore teeth like yours (open bite) so I do not have to shorten them as I prepare them for veneers or crowns to finish the case. ...Read more

I have a supernumerary tooth behind my two front teeth. It created a space between them and pushed one forward. Can I have it extracted?

Yes: Yes, it sounds like it is interfering with alignment of your central incisors. You'll likely get the best result by seeing an oral surgeon for the extraction. He may want to do a cone beam CT to evaluate the area. Often there are 2 or more supernumerary teeth impacted same area. ...Read more

.

This : This is problematic. It is very easy to remove tooth structure, very difficult to add back.

There are things that can be done, including veneers and composite bonding. Each of those procedures has its pros and cons.

Speak to your dentist who did the recontouring and explain your situation. I always advise to remove a little at a time. ...Read more

I had a root canal performed on my 2 front teeth Monday. One tooth is not hurting but the other one is. Is this normal? How long will the pain last?

Depends: The discomfort often depends upon the severity of the infection in each tooth and the root canal process. Is the pain the result of temperature (hot, cold, ) or biting? Give it time. It can take a week to 10 days for discomfort to hopefully subside. I would call if you have any doubts. ...Read more

Is tooth shaping painful? I would like to make an appointment to have my two front teeth reshaped, but if it's a painful procedure then I might not. .

It : It is not, unless your teeth are extremely sensitive. If your teeth hurt just breathing in, then the reshaping will "hurt". The dental drill blows out air and water, usually at room temperature.
If this is the case, use some "sensitivity" tooth paste, like sensodyne for a couple of weeks first. If it is too sensitive, your dentist can numb you for the procedure. Personally, I have never had to numb any patient for reshaping.
Good luck! ...Read more

Waynesboro, Pain : Waynesboro, pain or discomfort that doesn't get better with time is a good hint to get looked at sooner than later. Try brushing and flossing aggressively. Sometimes you need to get those gums healthy after wearing temps for a while.

What can I expect the cost of tooth shaping to be? My two front teeth and the one next to them on the left are slightly jagged and broken due to a minor bike accident years ago. They're totally fine, but I would like them to look like they used to again.

What can I expect the cost of tooth shaping to be? My two front teeth and the one next to them on the left are slightly jagged and broken due to a minor bike accident years ago. They're totally fine, but I would like them to look like they used to again.

It : It is impossible to give price estimates for tow reasons:
1. Each area of the country has different fee schedules primarily due to the costs of doing business in that local.
2. Without an examination it is impossible to determine how much work is involved and if the desired treatment is indicated.

I recommend talking with your dentist to get an estimate and if your are unsure get a second opinion. ...Read more

I have gaps in my front teeth and either side of the tooth to the right of them, would fillings work or hide the gaps?

It can be done, but.: Whether it should be done, is a very different question. It depends upon many factors, such as your bite, health of your teeth and gums, amount of spacing, symmetry, long term prognosis, your expectations, etc. I suggest that you discuss all your options, along with pros and cons and costs of each with a dentist who can actually examine you and see x-rays of your teeth. ...Read more

I have a small tooth gap between my front teeth but it's bothering me so much, I don't want my wisdom teeth to cause over crowding.?

Two issues: If the gap between your two front teeth is small and you are unhappy with it, ask your dentist about having some tooth colored bonded composites placed to close the gap. Other options would be orthodontics and retention or laminates. Personally, I would probably go with the bonding. It's simple, relatively inexpensive and reversible. ...Read more

Evaluation: It is possible the nerves were damaged and the tooth may fall out, which is a little early but should be okay. However, she should be further evaluated by her pediatrician or family doctor to be sure the tooth does not risk becoming infected or impacted into the gums. ...Read more

All my molars feel traumatized. Front teeth used to be longer before chill and tooth bonding. Could it be that when it was longer separated molarsmore?

Pain in molars: You should not have work done on your front teeth that now makes your back teeth touch "harder" without proper evaluation of your occlusion. If your front teeth were so far off that now you are traumatizing your molars, then you have a more complicated situation. The work may have created an unbalanced occlusion. Front teeth do protect back teeth, see a trained dentist. ...Read more

Are the bottom two front teeth supposed to tooth the two front central incisors because it feels like there is pressure on side teeth. Front no touch?

Are the bottom two front teeth supposed to tooth the two front central incisors because it feels like there is pressure on side teeth.  Front no touch?

Ideally yes: But everyone's bite is different and can even change on a day to day basis. Have your own dentist take a look and check out your bite. Sometimes small adjustments can make a big difference. See if there is a reason why you feel more pressure on certain teeth and less on others. ...Read more
