Can cavities heal themselves if they are not filled?

Unfortunately, cavities won’t heal on their own. When one forms, this is often due to damage from consuming excess sugar, poor brushing, or an infection. If they develop, you need to visit a dentist near you for treatment. Most likely, they will recommend a filling, which involves scraping out the unhealthy debris and sealing it.

Can you complete a dental implant in a single day?

Yes! With the help of modern technology and treatments, you can get implants in just one day. Remember that it depends on the degree of restorative care your smile requires, your preferences, and the strength of your jawbone. Book a preliminary consultation with your dentist to learn more.

What should I do about my painful toothache?

If your tooth pain is persistent or has grown stronger, get yourself to a nearby dental clinic for emergency care. The dentist will see you promptly, assess your smile, and take x-rays. A dental filling, crown, or root canal are a few choices that may be recommended to address this issue.

How long does teeth whitening last?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive. If you get professional whitening at a dental clinic, results usually last about 3 months. If you choose at-home options like whitening toothpaste or rubbing your teeth with lemon peels, results will take longer to appear and will fade quicker.

Which is preferable, a root canal or a tooth extraction?

Dentists do everything possible to save an unhealthy tooth, so a root canal is often advised. However, if this procedure cannot save the tooth, it’s impacting another tooth, or your mouth is overcrowded. Always be sure to talk to your dentist first.

What type of denture is the most comfortable to wear?

Everyone’s preferences differ, so the best type of denture for you will depend on what you feel comfortable with. Permanent dentures are an option that a lot of people acquire because they won’t fall out, and they’re customized to your oral dimensions. To learn more, contact us at Lighthouse Dental today.

Dr Pillai is the most genuine dentist I have come across, he really cares about his patients and provide the best possible advice. Initially I consulted with him over phone for my wife’s wisdom tooth extraction, he accepted x-ray from other clinic and said that he may have two remove two of them, but when we visited him, he did a thorough check up and advised us to remove only 1 which is more troublesome and suggested to wait to check if other tooth is still causing trouble. When we visited him after 1 week of tooth extraction, he checked and said that as of today there is no need to remove the other tooth. This saved my wife a lot of pain and we really appreciate his commitment for providing best advise to his patients. Now he is like our family dentist and we will visit him for all our dental problems. Also his staff at the center is very helpful and kind, they ensure that you have a pleasant visit every time.
