What to Avoid After a Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Avoid brushing the teeth next to the extraction site and rinsing your mouth the first 24 hours after the procedure. They can dislodge the blood clots and affect healing. Call us at 703-822-5583 for more pointers.

How to Deal with Pain After Dental Filling
A dental filling is generally a painless procedure. But, when you feel pain afterward, it most commonly is because the filling is too high.
Your dentist will do their best to the right height. As you try to speak, chew or move your mouth, the filling may not feel right. If the filling is high, cracking will become more likely.
Talk to us so we can reshape or smooth out the filling by calling us at 703-822-5583 today.
Dental Filling: Over-the-Counter Meds for Pain
Do you feel discomfort or pain after a dental filling? You can take OTC meds like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. But first, talk to your dentist about what you are feeling by calling us at 703-822-5583.

When to Call After a Sinus Lift?
Is the pain or swelling increasing over time? Does the bleeding continue after a day or two? If you experience these after a sinus lift, be sure to call your surgeon right away. Call us at 703-822-5583.
Recovering from a Wisdom Tooth Surgery
The healing process and recovery time from a wisdom tooth extraction is different for everyone. Recovery is gradual but you should be able to see some improvement daily.
If you need stitches to close the wound, your surgeon will be removing them after a week. Pain, swelling, and bruising may also occur. These also need some time to heal.
If an infection happens or the blood clots become dislodged, call us at 703-822-5583 today.
What Damages Dental Bonding?
Bonding usually lasts for several years. But it depends on your oral habits. Avoid chewing on hard objects like pens or ice as well as biting your fingernails. For questions about our dental bonding, call us at 703-822-5583 today.

- The entire procedure for one tooth can take about 30 minutes a full hour for completion.
- Avoid eating foods that can stain the teeth for the first 48 hours after your procedure.

When is a Sinus Lift Necessary?
A sinus lift is necessary if your sinuses are near the jaw or don’t have enough bone height in your upper jaw for dental implants. Your dentist will determine if you need one. Call us at 703-822-5583 today.
Avoid These Foods After a Dental Filling
Did you recently undergo a dental filling procedure? Be sure not to eat the following foods up to two weeks after the procedure:
- Foods that are hard and sticky
- Foods that you need to chew properly
- Hot or cold foods and drinks
If you need more information on what you can and can’t do after your procedure, call us at 703-822-5583 today.
A Tip When Brushing Your Teeth
When brushing your teeth, make sure to do it in a circular motion. Doing so can help reach the different areas inside the mouth. For more tips specifically for your oral situation, call us at 703-822-5583.
Refitting a Badly-Fitted Crown
A badly fitted crown can cause jaw pain and other complications. If you notice that your crown is shorter or longer than its adjacent teeth, have your dentist refit it. Call us at 703-822-5583 to schedule a visit.
#GentleCareDentists #Refitting #BadlyFittedCrown
When Might Teeth Bonding Not Work?
Teeth bonding may not be the best option for those who have severe tooth decay or damage. In such a situation, a crown or a veneer may be more suitable. Call us at 703-822-5583 to know your options.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers from a reliable dental practice should last around 10 to 15 years. Over time, though, natural wear and tear can happen. If you’d like to have veneers fitted, call us at 703-822-5583 today.
Care Tips After a Teeth Bonding Procedure
Have you gotten your teeth bonded? It is important to take proper care of your newly bonded teeth. Here are some care tips to consider:
A. Brush your teeth at least twice every day. Don’t forget to floss.
B. Don’t bite your nails, ice, or any other hard objects.
C. Avoid tea, coffee, or anything that can stain the teeth two days after the procedure.
D. Schedule regular dental cleaning every six months.
To schedule a teeth bonding procedure, call us at 703-822-5583 today.
Are Dental X-Rays Necessary?
Dental x-rays help dentists evaluate your teeth. But if you don’t have obvious dental problems and you're taking care of your teeth, you don’t need to have an x-ray every year. If you do need dental x-rays, call us at 703-822-5583.

Adapting to Wearing Dentures
Wearing dentures can be uncomfortable at times. Wear it continuously so your mouth can adapt. But remove them at bedtime to rest the gums. If you need adjustments for your dentures, call us at 703-822-5583.

Dental Veneers: Who Can They Be For?

1. Cracked or chipped teeth
2. Discolored teeth
3. Missing teeth
4. Gaps in between their teeth
To get dental veneers, call us at 703-822-5583 today.
