What to do if I'm having all my teeth extracted and getting immediate denturesi am only having local anesthesia what should I expect?

What to do if I'm having all my teeth extracted and getting immediate denturesi am only having local anesthesia what should I expect?

Depends really: If you have all your teeth (28-32) you can expect soreness, to what degree depends on many factors. Immediate dentures are really an estimate on what the doctor/lab think you jaw will be like once the teeth are out. There will likely be a lot of inflammation immediately after, thus making the dentures feel tight. Within a week or so, the inflammation will lessen, dentures will loosen. Good luck ...Read more

Soon!: Hopefully, your dentist grafted the extraction site after your tooth was removed. If not, you might need to have a bone graft placed. It typically takes 3 months for a bone graft to "take", after which you can have a dental implant placed. Implants are the ideal option, and you won't regret the decision to have a dental implant placed. Seek the advice of a prosthodontist for specific info. ...Read more

Do dental, screw implants hurt? Im getting one soon cuz of a missing tooth i was born with, so no extraction. How do they numb you/put you to sleep?

Do dental, screw implants hurt? Im getting one soon cuz of a missing tooth i was born with, so no extraction. How do they numb you/put you to sleep?

Easy, no pain: You don't have to be put to sleep. A couple of easy injections, the same as if it were for a filling will make you completely numb. If your doctor uses "sweet air", you can request that also to make you more relaxed. It's a relatively easy procedure. Ask all the questions you want of the dentist actually placing the implant. Restoring the implant with a tooth is even easier and no injections. ...Read more

Ho long do I need to wait to be able to brush my teeth after having 1 wisdom tooth extraction?

Ho long do I need to wait to be able to brush my teeth after having 1 wisdom tooth extraction?

Brush all your teeth: I advise my patients to brush all of their teeth like they normally do, or are supposed to following surgery. They are advised to avoid brushing over the surgical sites the day of surgery, begin brushing lightly over the surgical sites the next day (after 24 hours) and then brush as usual on the second postoperative day (after 48 hours). They are also advised to avoid spitting the first 24 hrs. ...Read more

My dental sealants have been placed too high, will they adjust and lower or should I call my dentist to fix them, I don't want to bug her.

My dental sealants have been placed too high, will they adjust and lower or should I call my dentist to fix them, I don't want to bug her.

Sealant adjustment: Call your dentist for a quick and easy adjustment. They will not self-adjust on their own and will only cause the teeth and\or jaw to become sore. Your dentist wants you to be comfortable and will be glad to get you in right away for the adjustment. Personally, I would be upset if one of my patients does not let me know right away and has to be needlessly uncomfortable. ...Read more

How long do you have to have gauze stuck in your mouth after a tooth extraction?

How long do you have to have gauze stuck in your mouth after a tooth extraction?

Check them in 30 min: Good pressure with gauze will help a clot form. This will prevent dry sockets, and allow healing. Check the guaze in 30 minutes then change them about every hour. Sometimes you can be done with them in a hour, and sometimes you have to change them several times. If you are still bleeding, use thumb pressure on the gauze. ...Read more

Nothing hot/spicy: You need basically to stay on soft non irritating foods like jello, pudding, cold cuts, and soups. Avoid hot and spicy foods as they irritate the wound, smoking and drinking through a straw as negative pressure may cause the loss of the blood clotted in the socket to close it , delaying healing. ...Read more

Can a dentist give you gum recession or anything with dental cleanings if she doesnt like you after asking her to reclean your teeth free of charge ?

Can a dentist give you gum recession or anything with dental cleanings if she doesnt like you after asking her to reclean your teeth free of charge ?

No: Your dentist cannot give you gum recession. If your gum tissue was inflammed and swolen prior to your cleaning it may be possible that as the inflammation caused by the plaque and tartar goes down after having it cleaned off your teeth, it may seem like you have a small amount of recession, but that would not be a negative reflection on your dentist. That's why you have your teeth cleaned! ...Read more

Periodontist installed two implants. Would my general dentist ever really need to cut my gums (again) to set the abutment or crown? Do not want this.

Periodontist installed two implants. Would my general dentist ever really need to cut my gums (again) to set the abutment or crown? Do not want this.

Healing Abutment: If the healing abutment is below the level of the gums a second stage exposure procedure is necessary in order to place the abutment and crown. This is a very quick, simple and minor procedure and usually done by the surgeon who placed the implant. If the healing abutment is exposed already, no further surgery should be necessary. ...Read more
