I Have Left My Teeth Get In A Bad State. I Have A Bad Smell Coming For My Teeth But I’m Too Embarrassed To Go. What Should I Do?

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. Unfortunately I have left my two teeth (second to last upper,and second to last lower) to rot as I have a fear of dentist but now they have started to smell badly, I need to get them both pulled out but I am too embarrassed to go to a dentist. Do you know if there is anyone who specialises in rotten teeth? I have a filling in my lower tooth but it is still in place. The situation is driving me mad. I’m not in pain but the smell is causing me not to speak to anyone as I’m in fear that other people may smell it. Please advise me on what to do.

I’m Too Scared To Brush My Teeth In Case I Make Things Worse! Please Give Me Some Direction?

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I am a 20 year old student who hasn’t taken care of my teeth. I have now realised that if I don’t do something soon there will be nothing left. I haven’t seen a dentist in over 5 years and rarely brush due to the fear that I will now make things in my mouth even worse. I don’t know what it is but I can’t see a dentist. It’s got to the point where I have been in enough pain over the last few weeks that I have needed to take ibuprofen and sometimes paracetamol at the same time to get rid of the pain. I believe I have at least 14 bad teeth and at least 6 of them are really bad. I want to find help but I don’t know what to do. Please could you give me some direction on what to do next. Thanks.

My Front Tooth Cracked After Root Canal Treatment. I’m Always Scared Of Going To The Dentist. What Do You Think I Should Do?

Friday, June 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. My front tooth has cracked and a piece has fallen out, but this tooth has also had root treatment done to it and since then has started to rot at the back and two bits of tooth have fell off. What would be best for me to do? I always have to get sedation when I go to the dentist and I’m very scared of going. I don’t know what would be best or what I can get as the tooth is rotten. What do you think I should get done and when should I get it done? Due to work I can’t get time off for about 2 weeks.

My Wisdom Tooth Is Very Brittle But I’m Scared Of What Will Happen. What Should I Do?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have a wisdom tooth on the left of my jaw. It is quite broken and parts of it are down to the gum-line. It has a hole in the middle where my filing has fallen out and it is very brittle and breaks a lot. I’m currently in a lot of pain with it and need to visit the dentist but I’m very scared of the dentist. What will happen? Will it be painful? Will they have to pull my tooth out and as I’m scared it will hurt will they be able to give me anything? I hope you can help me understand what will happen. Thank you.

I Have Been Told That I Need A Specialist For My Curved Roots. Could My Regular Dentist Do This Instead?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I’ve been told that I need nerve root canal treatment as my roots are curved. I would need to see a specialist to correct this. Do you know if this is the correct way of going about something like this? I have no problems with my current dentist, he is very good and I wondered if he could do it instead. Do you know if this is possible? I hope you can help me with this, I’m extremely nervous. Thank you for your reply in advance.

I Have A Massive Phobia Of Dentists And Have Not Been For Ten Years. What Is The Cheapest And Least Painful Option For A Whole Mouth Of Work?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. First of all, let me tell you I have a massive phobia of dentists. I have not had any work done to my teeth in over 10 years, and they are chipped, discoloured, rotten and in some parts missing. I don’t think there’s One tooth in my mouth that would not need treatment. I would love to transform my teeth into a smile but I worry about cost & pain/fears. What is the cheapest & least painful option for a whole mouthful of work? Thank you.

I Had Dental Phobia As A Teenager And Now I Need To Fix My Gummy Smile. Is This Even Possible?

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I lost teeth on the left side of my jaw due to serious dental phobia when I was a teenager. I had implants about 14 years ago and I am happy with them, the only issue is cosmetic – I have a gummy smile and due to loss of teeth on the left, the gums have shrunk, but not on the right side where I still have teeth, making my smile asymmetrical which makes me feel very self-conscious. Also the bridge over the implants is a different colour from my teeth on the right jaw. Maybe a more appealing and cosmetic bridge over the implants could make a difference? Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.

I Have Very Sensitive Teeth But I’m Too Scared To Go The Dentist. Please Advise Me On Where I Should Go?

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can help me sort something out. I have 3 broken teeth which are very sensitive and I am in pain. But I just cannot go dentist as I’m just so scared but I need some help. The thought of another needle in my mouth makes me feel so ill. I really would like sedation just to have them all out and be done with. Please advise me on where I go from here? Is sedation possible on NHS? How quickly can I have it done? Also what do you recommend for someone as scared as myself? Even cold air on my teeth gives me have pain and chewing hard food is near on impossible. I want to get them sorted so I can have regular check-ups. Thanks.
