My son had his first visit at Gem City Dental this morning and was told he needed a palate expander and braces. Despite the news (which we pretty much already knew) the visit was good. The waiting room is a little small, but everyone was friendly including the doctor. He talked to me about finances and how we could make sure my son got the best treatment needed if our insurance ended up denying him. So far 2 thumbs up! We will be going back in a month or so to start the process.

My son is on Medicaid and this place is as nice as ANY other orthodontic facility. He has never had any problems with brackets falling off or shoddy workmanship. The office staff is very helpful. The doctor is a bit quiet, but will answer any questions you may have. As for a timeline, one can never speculate as teeth move in their own time and varies with everyone. I have been very pleased with Gem City Dental.
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
