Thank you for your question. Although braces treatment would not have any impact on your nasolabial lines as the braces are bonded to the teeth and its influence is only on the teeth and its supporting bone, it may be good to assess the lip posture following removal of braces as the...

It depends on what you mean by "last". If you mean how likely it is that the root canal treatment will have a successful long term outcome, then there are studies showing that root canal treatment in teeth with areas of bone loss around the root tips are about 70-80% successful ...

Take-home bleaching can be used off-label in the treatment of these stains (as in this case report ). Take home bleaching using 10% carbamide peroxide in custom-made bleaching trays is very safe and has low levels of teeth sensitivity associated with it, so it seems to be a ver...

Thank you for your question and for including a lateral cephalogram to help me understand your case better. From the xray that you have included, the upper and lower teeth do appear to be proclined or slanting forwards. Your lips appear to close nicely with an average to normal angl...

post jaw surgery plates and screws
Thank you for your question. Plates and screws from jaw surgery are left in the jaw after surgery to allow for stabilization of the jaw. This is the most important during the first six month post-surgery to allow for complete bone healing. These plates and screws typically do ...

Generally, when a tooth is damaged or diseased, we will examine if it is possible to save the tooth. If it can be saved, a root canal treatment will be recommended. A root canal treatment involves the following: 1) Creating an opening into the affected tooth 2) Removing...

Hi there, Thank you for your enquiry, sorry to hear that you are having a toothache. Based on your X-ray, you have 4 wisdom teeth, the 2 on the upper have erupted in a straight position, while the 2 on the bottom have insufficient space and have grown at a slanted angle otherwise known as imp...

Swollen gum at molar
The history and photo suggests a wisdom tooth which lacks sufficient space to erupt. This is a frequent cause of gum swelling at the back. When there is insufficient space for the wisdom tooth to erupt, there is typically gum that covers part of it. This condition is called pe...
