Jojo88 , He also does fillings, crowns, or whatever during the day. He also makes sure he sees everyone before they leave. Sometimes they want to talk. Also they talk over you so they can put in your chart the right depths, cavity or whatever. That is not a valid complaint on your part. Absolutely normal practice. He's been my dentist for about a year now. I enjoy his staff and everyone is very, very, nice. Nicest Guy in the world when you meet him. Great dentist too! I had to have three fillings from him. He made me feel very comfortable for someone who hates the dentist.

Dr. Dearstyne is an amazing dentist! I have been going to him for almost 15 years. He makes me feel at ease even while he is working on my teeth. I wish I could give more stars.
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
