I went there today, after dealing with my Daddy's Death and this major toothache I felt it was time for me to deal with this tooth. First, let me just say that I was late. I would not have Greeted mys,elf that nicely. But we were greeted nicely. First was x-rays. Are you kidding me!!!! Well it turned out to be quite a struggle. But Tara, the office manager, made it as fun as ever. I needed that laugh and her wonderful personality. My mouth and the x-ray machine would not get close enough to each other to take the x-rays, but Tara didn't give up. And we succeeded. Dr. Fort was the Dentist. He was very professional, warm and helpful, trusting. He helped me back in my chair. Oh, and did i tell you that you get to watch TV, while your mouth is getting a spa treatment, on your own little TV. Its so cool. And on the way out, we got to see Lauren. Also a breath of fresh air. She was very Bubbly, awesome to Alex, and the perfect way to end a Dentist appointment. I definitely found my Dentist. I recommend the place to anyone and 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
