Symptoms of a Cavity

At the very least, cavities are painful and inhibiting nuisances. If left untreated, however, cavities can lead to significant infection and the need for surgical treatment. 

To avoid extensive tooth decay, it is first necessary to familiarize yourself with the symptoms listed below. If you experience any of these, it is critical that you seek professional treatment as soon as possible.

  • Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is one of the initial signs of a cavity. You will most often experience sensitivity and discomfort when biting down, or when your tooth encounters temperature variations, especially cold.

  • Visible Pits

As cavities worsen, they can cause visible holes and pits in the tooth which are often sensitive to the touch.

  • Visible Discoloration

A cavity may also cause brown discoloration at the most sensitive sites.

  • Prolonged Pain

Prolonged tooth pain or toothaches can be a sign of a more serious cavity, or of decay reaching the nerves at the root of your tooth.

  • Pus

Pus around the tooth at the gum line is a sign of serious infection, which can be caused by severe tooth decay. Should your cavity reach this stage of progression, you may need a course of antibiotics and surgical treatment (most likely a root canal).

You may not be conscious of cavity formation, as initial decay can be symptomless. For this reason, keep regular dental appointments—a professional can examine your smile and, if any cavities are detected, treat the issue before you feel any discomfort or pain. 

For more details on preventing cavities and tooth decay, contact the offices of Dr. Michael J. Wei. If you are experiencing any cavity symptoms, we can schedule an appointment and discuss your treatment options. Call us today at (212) 982-4080!

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei Providing Porcelain Fixed Bridges

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is replacing missing teeth and providing attractive new smiles to Manhattan area patients who have one or more missing teeth. “Porcelain fixed bridges” are a popular restorative dental procedure to permanently replace missing teeth or teeth that have been badly damaged from an accident. 

A “fixed dental bridge” is often recommended if a patient has one or more missing teeth in a row. The fixed bridge replaces missing teeth by adding a new porcelain tooth (or teeth) to close the gap between missing teeth. Hidden “clasps” are used to secure the new tooth in place and are supported by crowned “abutment” teeth on either side. The result is a long-lasting almost permanent new teeth and a complete “smile makeover” that makes patients look great.

“Porcelain fixed bridge is a great alternative for patients who have more than one missing tooth and who can’t afford implant dentistry. Porcelain fixed bridges are strong, aesthetic, and durable. They are done quickly and usually require just two visits.” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei.

A porcelain fixed bridge is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment for correcting problems such as:

* Replacing a missing tooth

* Replacing many missing teeth

* Filling gaps between teeth

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei Providing Dental Implants

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is providing tooth restoration and smile makeovers to New York City area patients who have missing teeth making it embarrassing to smile and difficult to chew and speak. “Dental Implants” or “Implant Dentistry” are a popular way to permanently replace badly damaged or missing teeth and give patients a complete “smile makeover” that makes them want to smile again. 

Unlike dentures that use adhesives and care routines, dental implants are permanent and will not slip. Dental implant patients have the freedom of eating even the chewiest foods without slipping like dentures. Simply care for dental implants as if they were natural teeth. Best of all, with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime!

Implant dentistry is a popular way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants have two main components:

* The Implant - A small man-made “implant” or “root” that is placed in the jawbone,

* The Tooth - A custom-made natural-looking permanent tooth (or set of teeth) that is attached to the implant.

“Dental implants are a completely natural-looking solution to replacing damaged or missing teeth,” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei. “Dental implants are strong, permanent, and provide a bright, white beautiful smile. They’re like having your own natural teeth again, and our patients love their new smiles!”
