You know when you have a problem with a tooth or gums, but sometimes you don’t have any idea how it can be treated. That’s why we built this chart, to direct sufferers of tooth pain, tooth sensitivity, gum disease, and many other common dental problems to the various treatment options. You’ll also get an idea of how long each treatment takes, and how long the effects last. 

Please note that this chart is a general guide only, it is not comprehensive, and that your personal experience may vary. Always consult with a dental professional to gain an accurate understanding of your particular needs and how long your treatment will take and last.
