My dental problems have caused my jaw to recede, what should I do?

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012
Q.

My situation:

I’m 27 and I have …
Crooked front teeth.
A fairly significantly inward leaning lower left canine.
Deep poorly drilled, poorly filled cavities on nearly all rear 8 molars.
An untreated cavity on my lower left premolar.
Have never had my wisdom teeth removed – but never had a dentist cite them as problematic.
My teeth are tightly packed with rear molars being pushed inward, and a front tooth being pushed outwards. Making my palette feel small.
The curve of my upper teeth on the left is different than on the right which curves in towards the middle of my mouth.
My teeth have not had a single position to bite or sit comfortably since I was 10.
I’ve gone through long bouts of discomfort and pain which I would call compactions, but have been brushed off by dentists when I’ve brought this up.

I’ve had many unpleasant dental experiences, including very unprofessional treatment from a Private dentist as an NHS patient when I was 16 which led to my parents cancelling me getting braces.

The state of my dental health has probably ruined my life, it plays a large part in causing depression that I end up trying to hide as much as I do my teeth. And I literally cannot take it anymore.

My question:
I feel that my dental problems have also caused my jaw to recede, and I’m scared of moving forward and be given an inappropriate dental only solution to what could be a larger problem.

Where do I go, who do I ask and how do I take the right cosmetic first step?

There is too much of a gum look in my smile. Would gum reshaping work and would this be done with a laser?

Friday, November 2nd, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes,

My teeth are in an excellent condition and they are very symmetrical too as I had orthodontics when I was younger.

However, my gums are not symmetrical and I believe that in some places there is more gum than there should be. I would like to know (a) if I could have my gums reshaped, (b) if part of the bone would have to be removed, (c) if this can be done with the use of laser, and (d) what would the cost be. I can gladly send you a picture if you need more information. Depending on your answers, I would be happy to proceed and have them reshaped at your practice.

Thank you in advance.

How many teeth are moved during the whole process of the 6 Month Smiles treatment?

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012
Q.

I’m just looking at the 6 month smile program and i was wondering how many teeth are moved in the whole process?

I’ve read that only the teeth in the smile will move, how many teeth are considered the smile group? front 4,6,8? And do they include the bottom teeth also?

Also does this effect the bite after the procedure when only part of my teeth have moved? Atm my bite is uneven but it feels ok, will it change dramatically?

Many Thanks for your time

Is it possible to sand down my front teeth?

Friday, October 19th, 2012
Q.

Hi I would like to ask you a question regarding tooth contouring and reshaping, I am an 18 year old male and reasonably healthy teeth but I don’t like the shape of them never have, is it possible to in a way sand them down lol the front two teeth look like bunny teeth most would argue they’re fine but I am not confident with them, I also have a pair of two teeth on the top and bottom of my jaw that are sharp could they be contoured into a more attractive square shape?

Thanks
