They gave me a free exam and x-rays but they would not give me a printed shopping list either. However, they showed me on their computer camera and explained what I needed and I did write it down. When I went somewhere else to compare, it was exactly as they had told me it was, but Dr Reyes' prices were much more reasonable. His root canals were only 504, his crown was 495 everyone else wanted almost 1000 for the root canal alone, and I needed two of them so I went back and had it done at Dr Reyes' office. He was very gentle. They even gave me my money back for the x-rays when I came back to do the work because I did pay for them when I took them I did not think that was unfair since I was going somewhere else with them to compare. I do not believe in getting something for nothing. They did give me a printed list of what was done after everything was finished. I guess that is the way they prevent people from abusing of the system since they do give away a complete exam and complete x-rays and it is very thorough. I am very glad I went back.
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
