Carlson, Sarah L, DDS
Over the past 2 years at Northstar Dental, I have had 4 crowns done by Dr. Carlson and have so much faith in knowing they will fit perfectly and have an exact color match. One was even sent back to the lab because the color didn't blend perfectly! I have also had a couple of old silver fillings painlessly removed and replaced with porcelain. I noticed her assistant seemed to read her mind on what was needed next and her opinion on procedure was we mm respected by the Dr. Also, I have been to both Mary and Matt for cleanings and they are the most thorough l can remember ever having. The reception, Sarah, is very personable and accomodating. I always receive a reminder call from her and also a follow up call after work was performed. I am extremely pleased with the professionalism and abilities found in this office and would recommend them to absolutely everyone!

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
