When a wisdom tooth is problematic symptoms may include:

  • Pain and swelling of the gum overlying the impaction – this is due either infection of this operculum or trauma from the tooth above hitting into it, or a combination of both. For example, a swelling that arises from infection may make the upper tooth impinge onto the gum – traumatizing it more and causing a vicious cycle.
  • Bad breath, due to infection and/or debris building up in the area.
  • A bad taste in the mouth, for the same reasons.
  • Pus coming out from the swollen gum area.
  • Aches when you open your mouth, as you are stretching the inflamed tissues.
  • Difficulty on opening your mouth.
  • Tenderness when chewing or biting as this hurts the swollen gum area.
  • Pain/ulcers on the inner cheek, where the pointy parts (cusps) of the impacted teeth may be digging into the soft tissues of the cheeks.
  • Ear-ache, as pain can spread outward from the area.

The symptoms can occur for a few days and then clear up. It can then come back at any time, often with weeks or months between occurrences.

Preventive & Pediatric Care

child’s first dental exam should be scheduled right around when their first tooth erupts, and pretty much definitely by the time they are around a year old.  After that they should be seeing a dentist every six months.

The dentist will administer an examination of the child’s mouth and teeth.  This would consist of visually examining the teeth and gums for any abnormalities and then testing any spots that seemed discolored, decayed, or chipped with an appropriate tool.  If needed and the child is old enough, the dentist would also take x-rays of the child’s mouth.  This would be both to look at any cavities or damage to the erupted teeth but also to look at the development of the adult teeth before they come in, so as to anticipate any problems the child might have after the baby teeth come out.  It is best to be able to look at that kind of development. 


 An important part of the dental office visit for children is the fluoride treatment.  This is a special agent (typically a gel, these days, available in exciting flavors like cherry and bubble gum) that gets applied to the teeth (often with mildly disconcerting trays that get filled with the fluoride treatment gel and then placed over the teeth).


If you follow the schedule of every six months seeing the dentist with your child should grow up with a bright smile and good oral hygiene habits to last a lifetime.


Habits regarding dental health, good brushing habits and any sort of issues with risks such as thumb or pacifier sucking all happen very early on and if you try and wait too long before fixing these mistakes or building these habits you might miss the chance. The right pediatric dentist will be able to help you figure out the best ways to teach your child the importance of dental health and hopefully instill a number of good habits in them for the rest of their life.


Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. The dental implant procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but also is considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.

People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits, leading to secondary health problems like malnutrition.

By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to eat all the foods they love, without struggling to chew. Additionally, dental implants stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to maintain facial features.












 if a tooth was infected or the nerve in the tooth was dying, the tooth would have to be extracted. Today, because of a procedure known as root canal treatment the infection can be treated, the injured nerve taken out and the pain associated with such symptoms alleviated.

A common reason for root canal treatment is an infected or abscessed tooth, which may result from a deep cavity, periodontal disease, or even a fractured tooth. Sometimes trauma like a sharp blow to the mouth can result in damage to the pulp (nerve) of the tooth. Should you have symptoms such as swelling, sensitivity to hot and cold or discomfort on touching your tooth, a dentist should be consulted immediately.


Root canal treatment removes the pulp tissue, which is composed of a nerve and blood supply within the tooth. After all the material has been removed from within the root, the canal or canals (if it is a multi rooted tooth) are sterilized and sealed with a material that prevents bacteria from re-entering.

Because a root canal removes everything which feeds the tooth and keeps it alive, the tooth will become very brittle after a period of time. This time period varies from person to person. It is for this reason that the tooth should be restored as quickly as possible and your dentist might recommend that a post and a crown be placed as a final restoration. Back teeth are usually crowned or capped shortly after a root canal has been performed to prevent the tooth from shattering due to the pressure put on it by chewing
