    When are dental crowns necessary?

    I'm 62 and have fairly good teeth. I've gone to the dentist my entire life. Recently, a new dentist wants to remove my large old fillings and place crowns on. He claims that the edges of the fillings are receding and the filling is not sealed tightly. I can understand having the crowns if the filling is broken or the tooth is cracked. I'm all for saving my teeth. However, if I'm not having pain, and the filling is secure is this expense really necessary?

    Cut my gums exposing tooth root

    I recently cut my gums and just noticed that it has exposed the root of my tooth. I’m not experiencing any pain or discomfort but am wondering if my gums will heal over the exposed spot on their own or if this is something I will need to get taken care of. The spot is relativity small about 2mm in diameter near the base of of my tooth so if I can avoid a procedure I would prefer to let it heal on its own. Thanks!

    If I have braces, do I still need dental checkups every six months?

    I went to a dentist’s office, knowing there would be a list of procedures I would have to work through before I could start seeing an orthodontist.

A friend of mine referred me to her orthodontist where she had also gotten adult braces. She told me she only had her braces on for six months. It sounded too good to be true, but I was intrigued and made an appointment. Sure enough, my proposed....
