LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- We asked for your dental questions on THV 11 News' Facebook page, and Dr. Roy Jolley was here to answer them on "THV 11 This Morning".
The questions he tackled today are:
- Going through chemo it has changed the color of my teeth. What is the best way to brighten my teeth with having sores in my mouth?
- Can a person be allergic to dentures? This is my second set and my tongue swells and becomes raw after a couple of days of wear.
- Someone told my husband not to use whitening toothpastes, because they have metal abrasives in them. True? Or false?
- How old should my child be for their first dental checkup and why does he need to be that age? What does the first dental checkup include?
