Dr Paulson is a great dentist, if you can get to see him. His front desk staff never seems to answer the phone and returning calls even for emergencies, FORGET IT! I called and left numerous messages for a cleaning appointment this past month and have yet to get a returned call. Then, I chipped my tooth, not bad enough to disturb the doc after hours but bad enough that the sharpness cuts my tongue. Left 3 messages early yesterday morning and called +10 times in addition but only got the answering machine. A return call even after I explained the problem on the phone? NOT. Perhaps an on-line appointment booking system would be an idea so he doesn't lose business.

Great experience from beginning to end. I have very sensitive teeth, but felt completely comfortable. Outstanding.
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
