Handling Your Child's Loose Tooth

If your child has a loose tooth, is it best to let nature take its course or pull it out yourself? Although it’s always best to check with your dentist before handling a loose tooth if you’re not sure of the process, it is usually safe to remove your child’s tooth, if he or she will let you.

Watch this video to learn more about pulling your child’s wiggly baby tooth. Some kids want parents to help them pull, in which case, gently squeezing the tooth with a tissue should remove it safely. Other kids prefer to let the tooth fall out on its own, which is fine with most dentists as well.

Inlays and Onlays for Your Smile

Inlays and onlays are porcelain restorations designed to serve a variety of dental functions. An inlay or onlay can be used to restore a damaged tooth after a filling or a tooth injury, as well as to whiten the visible portion of a tooth and fill in gaps between teeth without the need for orthodontics, such as Invisalign braces. Porcelain inlays and onlays are simply partial tooth inserts or coverings that are designed to match the natural color, shape, and structure of your teeth, while also providing added strength and stability to damaged teeth. This treatment can be completed in just one to two visits to completely transform the look of your smile, while also halting decay in its tracks to maintain excellent dental health.

A smile makeover can change your outlook on life, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile. Dr. Michael J. Wei specializes in cosmetic dentistry in Manhattan, including porcelain veneers, cosmetic tooth bonding, and porcelain tooth crowns, inlays, and onlays.

The Process of Getting Veneers

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns that may affect the teeth at the front of the mouth, including cracks or chips, mild misalignments, and discoloration. The process of receiving porcelain veneers is typically performed during two separate visits, and may be part of a complete smile makeover or aim to correct just one or a few teeth in your mouth. If you’re interested in receiving veneers, your dentist will explain the procedure in more detail to ensure you have a clear picture of what to expect.

Tooth Preparation

Once you have determined the teeth that you want to correct with veneers, your dentist will remove a small amount of natural enamel from the surface of each tooth to be treated. This allows the veneer to fit snugly over the tooth, as veneers will add some small amount of volume to each tooth.

Dental Impressions

After tooth preparation, your dentist will take several dental impressions so he can design porcelain veneers that will fit perfectly. This process may involve the use of digital photography, physical dental impressions, or both to give your dentist the most accurate model of your mouth.

Temporary Veneers

Your dental impressions will be sent to a lab for fabrication, and you will receive your final porcelain veneers during a second visit to the dentist’s office. Before you complete your first appointment, your dentist will affix temporary veneers to your teeth to protect them and maintain their look.

Final Veneers

Once your final veneers are ready, you’ll return to the dental office and your dentist will remove the temporary veneers. He will then fit and affix your final veneers to the teeth with a permanent cement product to complete your treatment.

Treating an Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth is suffering an infection of the pulp, which is the living tissue inside the tooth. If you experience an abscessed tooth, dentists recommend root canal therapy to remove the infected pulp and seal the tooth against further damage.

In this video, you will learn more about the structure of the tooth and what happens when the pulp becomes infected. When your dentist performs a root canal, he will remove the pulp and treat the infection. Porcelain tooth crowns are used to cap teeth after root canal therapy, restoring their shape and providing added strength.

Do you have more questions about root canal therapy near Manhattan? Dr. Michael J. Wei can help you understand the benefits of a root canal and perform this procedure right in our dentist office. You can schedule an appointment today by calling (212) 982-4080, or visit us online for more information.
