Is There Supposed to be a Gap Between a Dental Crown and the Gum?

Friday, April 29th, 2016
Q.

Hello.

I hope your day is going well.

I am writing to you to find out if the gap between the dental crown and the gum is a side effect of having a crown fitted. I had been treated with one crown, some time ago and realised that it isn’t fitted right. I am worried that food may get behind the crown and so cause the decay process.

I find it hard to believe that this is something happening frequently, can’t believe it is something normal.

Thank you very much for your time.

Is There a Time Limit for the Removal of a Bone Graft?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
Q.

I had an external sinus lift bone graft carried out in Spain two months ago in my upper jaw, in preparation for an implant. Graft material, I'm not sure what, in the form of white granules was packed into the cavity drilled into the existing bone, and a dissolvable membrane placed over the top.
I have suffered a dull toothache type pain in the area of the graft ever since.
On a number of occasions I had loose graft particles removed as they were causing some pain.
I have had three courses of antibiotics. Two of penicillin and one of Rhodogil. Only Rhodogil gave some temporary relief.
I am being advised that the graft will probably have to be removed as antibiotics have proved ineffective.
Is there a time limit for removal of graft? Is it a difficult procedure, and could your practice assist, if necessary?

Can I Have Dental Work Done at a Dentistry School?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
Q.

Dear Dr Andrew Moore,

I am 26 years of age and moved from Scotland to London to try and better my life. I struggle with depression and anxiety which doesn’t help this matter.

I don’t have or make a lot of money and am trying to save in London. It’s impossible. The problem is, my UL3 has no root and is a black tooth which was covered with an NHS veneer, which has now split and come off. My UL1, UL2, UR1, UR2 have been extracted and replaced with a denture (along with UL4 UR4 AND UR6) which doesn’t fit. So I can’t eat with it in. My UR3 is the only tooth that hasn’t had any work done to it, this also includes both my wisdom teeth UR7 and UL7. The rest of my upper teeth have either root canal or really big fillings and you can hardly see any tooth.

This has caused me to loose weight due the fear of my teeth breaking when I eat and I have stopped socialising with people and have missed days at work also. I’m left with no confidence whatsoever! The worst thing about it is, I have always taken care of my teeth and flossed, brushed and used mouthwash but the decay is so bad! I lack calcium, always have. I gave my mum pyorrhoea of the mouth while I was in the womb.

I can no longer live like this and it’s so expensive to correct and I don’t want a denture for my whole upper mouth. I have heard of many people going to dental schools to get the work done for free. I’m lost and don’t have any clue of what my options are. All I have done is cry all day and not left the house.

Is there any advice or help you can offer me?

Warmest regards,

Can Corrective Dental Treatment be Reversed?

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016
Q.

Hi, I had two teeth extracted and my front teeth pushed back when I was a teenager. I’m 38 now and the treatment was to correct an overbite that I had. However, unfortunately my teeth have been pushed too far back in my mouth and now they are hardly visible when I smile. Its affecting my self confidence. My question is, is it possible to reverse this and bring the teeth forward, either with braces or an expander? Thanks.

What is the Cheapest Way to Restore my Whole Mouth?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Q.

I have been offered the All-on-4 treatment for £5500 as I have no teeth in the upper jaw. It is in the UK in Luton. Is this a good price and can this practice do it for the said price? I also only have 4 teeth in the lower jaw.The remaining teeth are not that good but they are strong. Could you please give me your expert advice on the cheapest way to restore my whole mouth? I am even willing to let postgraduate students to do some of the work if it would help both parties to achieve their full potential. Thanks.

How Much Would it Cost to Fix My Discoloured Tooth?

Monday, February 29th, 2016
Q.

Hiya, I was just wondering how much it would cost as my front tooth is black and I need it fixing. it’s so embarrassing, I don’t go out because I feel everyone is staring at it. I was just wandering how much it would be to be filled and made the same colour as my other teeth? Please reply a price as it’s urgent, I’m losing everyone because I won’t go out because I’m worried of people laughing at my teeth. Please help me fix my teeth with some advice and a price as this is very upsetting for me and needs sorting as soon as possible.

Where Can I Get Prosthetic Teeth?

Thursday, December 10th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I cannot get registered with a dentist and haven’t for several years. I have no teeth and I need to have some false ones but I can’t seem to find a dentist to help me. Please, you are my last resort. How can I get some false teeth?  I have tried everywhere in Shrewsbury but no one is taking on new patients. I cant eat my favourite foods because I cant chew things like steak or liver or pork chops, I feel like crying.

My Tooth is Still Discoloured After Internal Whitening. What Can Be Done?

Friday, November 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I had root canal a year or so ago, and my tooth has been discoloured. I have had internal whitening which has lightened the overall colour of the tooth, however I have 3 very distributive black lines on my tooth and my dentist says there is nothing else he can do. But he is thinking from a dental perspective not a cosmetic, as to me my tooth is still discoloured and makes me very self conscious as it’s my front tooth. Does this sound like something that can be sorted?

Thank you.
