What Can We Do to Save Our Child’s Teeth?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

My 7 year old daughter has gone to the private dentist with me regularly since she was a baby. I was told one day that she had decay and needed 2 small fillings. We dramatically changed her diet, reduced her sugar intake and tried harder when brushing her teeth. On a visit to an NHS dentist (we were referred by our own dentist as she had an abscess, which they said meant the tooth had to be extracted). The new dentist advised that most of her teeth were decayed (or decaying) and that she would have trouble all of her life and could lose lots of her teeth! We were horrified – should our dentist have helped us more and/or advised us so much sooner? Also, what can we do to improve the situation now please?
thank you.

Should We Still Go Ahead with My Daughter’s Tooth Extractions?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

 My daughter aged 13 was just diagnosed with Bell’s palsy. She has braces and has a scheduled appointment to have two teeth extracted to make room for more. I am wondering if she should continue with the appointment and the extractions due to the Bell’s? Will extracting teeth make her Bell’s worse? Please help if you can. Sincerely a very worried mom. She has had a rough time as it is and I don’t want to make it worse for her, but I also don’t want to prolong the years of the braces that she has to wear. Your help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

My 3-Year Old’s Teeth are Damaged. Will Cosmetic Dentistry Help?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve taken my three year old to the dentist.  His three front teeth are badly damaged, and the front two are corroded in the middle from poor dental care on my part, and drinking from bottled milk and fruit juices I’ve been told nothing can be done to fix them,  but is there anything he could get done cosmetically to cover this damage? Maybe filling it in or caps? Although all I can to is prevent the damage from getting worse, I don’t want my son to have to go through school or nursery with this and feel self conscious because of my mistakes. Thank you.

Q.

My grandson fell and injured one of his front baby tooth it has gone grey there appears to be no infection he is only three and his teeth were beautiful is there anything that can be put on the tooth to make it white. As it will be a least three or four years before the adult tooth appears. My daughter took him to the dentist and they said the tooth may go black there appears to be no infection on the gum. I hope you can help because I feel really bad just having him with a dark tooth and being able to do nothing about it. Thank you very much.

Monday, June 10th, 2013
Q.

Hi,
Im currently residing in South Africa, and would like to have your opion as well as my local dentists. My son will be turning 3 in August, and he has a few teeth that are starting to “decay” they have what looks like a yellow film on the teeth.(not all, just some). I was told that he would have to go into theatre to have these teeth filled, one of which he wants to remove the nerve. Alote of people say that its not necessary to worry about the baby teeth as they fall out anyway, so what i want to know, is can I leave his teeth as they are , or would you recommend that he go to theatre

Should We Extract My Daughter’s Erupted Canines?

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013
Q.

My 14 year old daughter’s two upper canines have erupted to full size in front and above the lateral incisors. All other teeth, on both sides of the upper arch, (central incisors through to premolars and molars) are well aligned with no gaps. Is it best to extract the canines, or extract the premolars and pull the canines into the spaces? The canines are bigger than the premolars, so would be a tight fit, and they would have to travel a long distance presenting a risk that good alignment would not be achieved. Extracting the canines would seem the simplest option with all other teeth being OK. But is it OK to lose these important teeth?

How Frequently Should My Daughter’s Unerupted Tooth Be Pulled Down After Surgery?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi my daughter who is 10 years old has an issue with her teeth. After going to see a dentist, we discovered that the the case is basically that her central incisor maxillary never erupted. When I got told about ti I was quite worried but I was assured the correct treatment plan could be put into place. When they did x-rays it showed up as being really really high, they put an expander in her mouth but that did not help so she had a surgery for her unerupted central maxillary, her gum was open and they placed a brace on the tooth, closed the gum and attached with a chain to the braces wired. How frequently should the Orthodontics specialists pull the chain to bring to tooth down?

Thanks.

How Long Do White Crowns Last And How Easily Are They Broken On Children?

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

My son is Two years is there any way that his sliver crown tooth may it be removed and replaced with a white one? If so how long does a white crown last I was told by his dentist it will only last a short period of time like two or three weeks and that he would be able to brake it the same day he got it. Is that true or they just didn’t want to do the work done? I’m not realy a fan of silver crowns .Thank you for you time.
