Good Afternoon. Do You Have Any Particular Toothpaste Recommendations For Gingivitis?

Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Q.

Good afternoon. Which toothpaste do you recommend to be best for hygiene and freshness?
Would you recommend an antibiotic for gingivitis?
Shall I ask my GP to prescribe me a particular product?
I am considering teeth whitening.
My only concerns before I make an appointment are:
How long will it last?
Do I have to purchase expensive products to maintain it?

Sorry, I am just trying to decide if it’s worth it.

Kind Regards.

My Dentist Thinks My Dental Health Is Fine, But I Think There Is An Infection. Should I Get A Second Opinion?

Monday, September 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I want to tell you about a number of problems I have over my latest visit to my local dentist. I have had all my old fillings re-done and I had three crowned teeth that were pulled and infected for, I’m not sure how long, probably over two years and have been on a lot of antibiotics and every time the antibiotics are gone this terrible smell comes back. The last crowned tooth was pulled three weeks ago and I still have the infected/decay smell. Why is this? Could my gums be infected in that area or is it the jaw bone? I went to the dentist yesterday thinking I might still have an infected tooth and he said no and went as far as to give me a letter stating my dental health is fine!

My Front Tooth Has Been A Nightmare For The Past Ten Years, Am I Eligible For An Implant?

Monday, June 10th, 2013
Q.

I have been reading “guidelines for selecting appropriate patients to receive treatment with dental implants guidelines” and it was just an email for some advice or to ask who I could seek advice from.

I had an accident when I was about 10 years old that caused me to loose my front tooth. This tooth was then put back into place and I received antibiotic treatment for a long while. I had a veneer put into place when I was 16, however due to recurrent infection my dentist at the time told me that my body was rejecting the tooth And it would need to be replaced with an implant in the future. Since the age of 13/14 I go through recurrent episodes of pain and visible abscess’ which the dentist had stopped giving me antibiotics for as he said they wouldn’t work. I recently fainted at work and broke my veneer and after visiting my dentist I was told that he could replace it with a crown but the root of the tooth has eroded that much I’ve probably got a year to two before it will fall out or need to be removed.

I wanted to know if/ where I would fit into the implant guidelines and who to talk to as my dentist has not been very helpful. I am only 21 and this has been an on going issue since the age of 10 which I would love to just be over.

Should I try and save my tooth by going ahead with root canal treatment?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012
Q.

Dear Andrew,

I saw my dentist to-day who confirmed that I have a tooth abscess. I am taking antibiotics, the pain has been simply awful. It is a lower canine. My options are: root canal or extraction. The tooth itself has no decay. As I have advanced gum disease (I have regular hygiene treatment), the gum is quite receded and this particular tooth has grade 1 to grade2 mobility. Deep down, I don’t like to think of the possible loss of the tooth, I work diligently on my dental hygiene. Having said that, financially I would only be able to afford the root canal on the tooth and not a crown and I think of the possible future brittleness of the tooth, although a crown was not mentioned. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. One moment I think – extraction – problem gone, the next I think, root canal – try to save the tooth. Long message, but thank you again Andrew.

I need root canal treatment, how can I afford to pay for this?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012
Q.

hello dr moore, i wondered if you could help me? the problem is that i dont have an nhs dentist, i have been on the waiting list since i moved over a year ago but with no luck. since then i have needed all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted. this was done by the nhs but i had to wait 6 months causing me to spend well over £100 on antibiotics. this pretty much cleared out my savings as between us me and my partner we only make £600 a month all of which goes on rent bills ect. the problem is that i now need a root canal (as the infection has gotten under a filling and is now in my jawbone) but i simply do not have the money to pay for it. i am in a lot of pain, is there anyway to treat this that will not need my to get a bank loan? any advice would be great

Have I made the right choices concerning my damaged front teeth?

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011
Q.

I recently broke two of my front teeth in an accident and so far I have had to have 1 removed as it couldnt be saved and currently it has been replaced with a temporary cap which is attached to 3 post. This tooth that has to be removed currently still has the roots and my denstist has already killed off all the nerves before replacing it with the temporary fixture as mentioned above.

On the second tooth which is one of the two front ones,it broke half way which my dentist has fixed with some filling materials that has covered the broken part. After a month from this treatment, I have had to return to get a root canal treatment on this tooth as it was giving me a lot of problems. My dentist after hearing my description of the pains as well as my xrays had given me two options which was to do a root canal or provide me with some antibiotics for a couple of months to see the reaction. I had opted for a root canal as I thought that down the line I will probably have to get it done anyway as my teeth had broken half way and the nerves had been exposed. Now I dont know if I had made the right decision by opting for a root canal this early and the thought of having to deal with discolorations etc had been really disheartening. Please advise if I did make the right choice, I am awaiting my next round of review so I could get it crowned and I wondering if it is also a good idea to get it crowned this early as the current fixture placed on it is not giving me to much problems.

My last question is this, according to my dentist the tooth that he has removed which I had mentioned above can be replaced with a crown that can attach to middle tooth that I had broken which will also be crowned. he has suggested that I pull out the root and have this procedure done. Is this the same as having a bridge??furthermore I had wanted a post and core done but he had advised against it as there hasnt been much teeth left after he had pulled it out and whatever is left is above the gum line and any post and core treatment will require that they pill off part of the gum to get it done. I had sort a second opinion from another dentist and he had advised that it could be possible to still do a post and core. Now I am confused as to what I need to get done. I want something done so that I wont have to worry about it falling off or giving me any problems in the next few years and so therefore would appreciate any advise that could give me some comfort and direction on what procedure to undertake before I make any decisions. Thanks

Antibiotics have stained my 2 year old’s teeth, is there anything I can do?

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011
Q.

I just noticed that my two year old daughter’s once beautifully white teeth are developing yellowish, mottled ‘stains’ on them. She was recently treated with antibiotics to treat a bacterial lung infection. Could the anibiotocs have caused this, or could something else be going on? Is there anything I can to to correct this or prevent it worsening?
My son also experienced this when he was about the same age and now, at the age of 5, he is quite self-consious of it. Fortunately, his baby teeth are starting to fall out now, but I want to ensure that my children’s permanent teeth are not afflicted with the same condition.

Thanks in advance for your help.
