Hi, I have a large gap in my tooth from where a part of it has been knocked out, I also have quite a large over bite, and very discoloured teeth. I have always been affected ted by my teeth ever since I was young. It really knocks my confidence during everyday life and makes things difficult. Especially social occasions, for example; I won’t smile at people or for photos and I cover my mouth when I speak. I was wondering if porcelain veneers would sort these problems out and if so would I be able to claim them off the NHS as I’m a single mother of a 2 month year old baby and would not be able to afford them without the NHS’s help

Hello doctor Bohara, I;m 39 years old and I had front dentures put in at a young age but now i would like to get a full set for the rest of my teeth because the rest of my teeth are in poor condition. I would need to be put to sleep for taking my teeth out because I’m a very nervous patient. How expensive would it be to have this done. Also, will I have to go any amount of time without dentures in because I would find that difficult and be too ashamed to do anything without any teeth. This is my last hope, I hope you can help me make my dream to smile again a reality, and bring my confidence back, Thanks,
Dr Kalpesh Bohara

I am 41 yrs old,non;smoker,general good health.MY teeth are fine but owing to 15 yr gap in visits to dentist I (According to X -ray image)I now have advanced gum disease which will not respond to treatment,at least at a non specialist level,specialist treatment for me would be prohibitively expensive.consequently the rear molar on either side of the lower jaw has been removed-according to my dentist this now leaves my bottom teeth in a stable state,however 2 front teeth on the upper jaw have also been removed
and the 3 behind the right canine
also have infection beneath them and thus are scheduled for removal in near future.I already have a small denture for the missing front 2 teeth which slides into place without clips but this has to be removed in order to eat any but the softest foods.If all these teeth are removed is any infection
likely to be contained?can you suggest appropriate methods to replace missing teeth which might
be more secure than those I currently use?
Please can someone help me. I have gone over this e-mail in my mind hundreds of times and just haven’t had the courage to write it. My hands are shaking typing this.
I am a 43 year old mother of a three year old I am a single parent living off of benefits.
I was a smoker till recently and have lost three stone and am looking after myself because of my son, I am an older mum so i want to be healthy for him.
I am absolutely terrified of the dentist so much so that I have had a toothache for two years. Lately its got so much worse. I take painkillers for a back and shoulder problem, but the pain in my back pales into insignificance compared to the pain in my tooth.
When I was a child my School was just across the road from New Cross Dentist College. Myself and other Children attended on a regular basis, I remember being held down in a chair terrified, whilst one man with a Bunsen burner heated up an instrument to give me a root filling I was about 7-8 at the time, after that I had to sit in a chair numerous times with a gumsheild on having fluoride treatment. I still had baby teeth when i was eighteen, but by that time I had stopped going to the dentist.
My teeth are in a terrible state i am in pain from three of them one is really bad. I hate meeting new people because of my teeth. Ive got no confidence at all and I’m terrified that my son will be bullied at school. I’m sure people treat me differently. My little boys father, who I am no longer with said he would not kiss me because of my teeth.
I am on anti depressants, and have even bought anti biotics online rather than go to the dentist. I know i have ruined my teeth, with smoking and drinking coffee and not visiting the dentist. But I cant live like this any more. I just want to look normal so I can be a proper mum to my son.
I cant sleep I lie awake at night thinking about it, it’s making me ill and I’m scared I’m going to end up with septicaemia. Please can you help me or do you know someone that can.
Hi Dr Andrew Moore, I hope I have come to the right place. My teeth are slightly not straight, not severely crooked but enough for it to be noticeable. It is mainly my front tooth thats out of line and its playing on my mind a lot and I am getting really self conscious about it I suppose. I don’t particularly like to go dentist often and try and avoid it as long as possible. I tend to not smile that much. What would you recommend doing for my teeth and would you also advise on the possible cost of such a treatment. Thank you very much, any advice would really help if you could just email me back when possible, it would be much appreciated. I look forward to your response, Thank you
