I Have Suffered With A Sinus-Like Head Cold Ever Since My Sinus Lift Procedure. Will This Go Away?

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I had a sinus uplift procedure 7 weeks ago which was successful. I had the stitches removed after 10 days and everything seems to be healing well. However I have suffered with a sinus-like head cold ever since the procedure, which is not improving after taking over the counter medicines. Is this problem linked to my procedure of just a coincidence? If it is linked, how long do I have to suffer with the symptoms? Am I likely to suffer with this problem for the foreseeable future? I do not usually tend to suffer with sinus related colds. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

I Would Like To Know How Much It Is For White Fillings And Whitening Treatment?

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I had a filling in one of my back teeth on left side upper set. But randomly the front of the tooth has gone so I can feel the filling and looking at it I can see the black filling. Quite gross! I wasn’t sure what can be done but I wanted to know if a crown or a white filling could be done and wondered how much it would cost. I also wanted to ask the cost of having white fillings replaced on another tooth, and also a deep clean and possibly whitening all over. I hope you can help.

I’m Unhappy With The Size Of My Crowns, But My Dentist Has Scared Me From Getting Them Re-done. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have had three of my front teeth fitted with porcelain crowns but I am unhappy with their appearance – my dentist has agreed to replace them. However, two of the teeth are root filled and quite weak. My dentist has scared me by telling me that it’s a high probability removing the crowns will damage whats left of the teeth and he’s not keen on fitting posts – he says they don’t last long and can cause problems. I don’t know whether to just leave them (even though I’ve paid £600 per crown) or chance it and have them redone.
Any advice would be appreciated?
Many thanks.

I Discovered A Black Spot On My Front Tooth. Will Fluoride Treatment Reverse The Decay?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, my problem is that I have recently discovered a black spot on my front tooth (top 1) that’s annoying me. My dentist recommended to just leave it and wait, but now I’m starting to think that it now looks bigger. I have heard of a fluoride treatment, and I wondered whether this could this help to reverse the decay? What would be the best treatment for my front tooth if I had to use a filling? Is a filling the only option? Many thanks for your advice.

Kind regards.

I Had A Failed Bone Graft Early Last Year And My Chin Aches Constantly. What Options Should I Take?

Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Early last year I had a bone graft to save my lower right central incisor due to bone loss. I also had some deep cleaning on all four quadrants. The graft failed unfortunately and now my mouth aches constantly in the chin area. I want to remove that tooth and do not want an implant, I want nothing to do with drilling into that so very sore area, so what other options can you suggest are available for me, besides an implant. The two teeth on either side are bending inward and pushing it further back. I hope you can help me with this as it’s causing me quite a lot of concern, many thanks.

I Have Brown Stains On My Teeth As I Smoke And Drink Coffee. What Can I Do To Get Rid Of Them?

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I currently have brown stains on the front of my teeth that are ingrained on the lines where my fillings have been put in and from smoking and drinking tea/coffee, is there a way to remove them? They are very ugly and noticeable and making me not want to smile any more at all! Can you help me with this? They are horizontal brownish lines and on four of my teeth every time I smile I can see them. If there is a way to fix them how much would it cost and what solutions could there be? I smoke around about five cigarettes a day and drink quite a few cups of tea and coffee daily!

Hi Dr, I Have Bad Toothache Which Is Throbbing, I’ve Read That My Tooth Might Be Pulled, Will I Be Able To Replace It?

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie. I have a couple of problems I need to discuss. I have had some bad toothache on the left side and it is really hurting, throbbing, I get swollen glands and the pain also effects the left side of my face and my ear also hurts and the tooth is also decayed so it might be an abscessed tooth. When I brush my teeth, it always bleeds sometimes a lot of. I also have poor dental hygiene.

I have read online that the tooth is most likely pulled out – Can I replace the tooth ? How do I get rid of the pain? I really need some help with this.

I’m Pretty Sure I May Have Gingivitis, As Whenever I Brush My Gums Tend To Bleed, What Mouthwash Can I Buy To Fix This?

Friday, September 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes, I’m worried because I’m pretty sure that I might have gingivitis. My gums are always slightly bleeding and I can NEVER brush my teeth without seeing “pink” in the sink and to make matters worse, what used to be a tiny gap has gotten bigger and one tooth seems to be growing outward. What is your advice on this? Who can seriously afford braces in this economy and is there any Drug store medicine besides mouthwash that would rid me of the bleeding gums once and for all? Please doctor, help me.

I Feel My Dentist Isn’t Up To Scratch, But If I Move I Would Have To Pay For Dental Work. What Do I Do?

Friday, September 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have been to the same dentist for about 20 years. I pay privately (denplan) saw the hygienist there the other day and I told her I wasn’t happy about my upper side teeth – some are missing and I notice one side the teeth look very small(ground down). Once when cleaning them a wad of cotton wool fell out and the dentist said that lasted well. I not happy with the state of my back teeth told the hygienist and she said my dentist is a make do and mend! She stated she wouldn’t put up with it. What do I do? It was the hygienist’s assistance who suggested I had a maryland in another part of my teeth – the same dentist wasn’t forth coming. Your comment would be greatly appreciated. I did contact denplan and was told if I move to another denplan dentist I would have to pay for dental work.

I Had To Have Most Of My Teeth Taken Out After An Abscess, What Can I Do To Get My Confidence Back?

Thursday, September 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie, I’ve just had treatment for an abscess on my tooth at the back of my mouth, that has led the hospital to take all my teeth out barring six. Now I can’t eat or speak properly I am so upset and I have lost my confidence of going out or even going to work. I think I’m going to need to get porcelain veneers or implants. I’m not sure what’s best for me and what the best options are because the last six teeth I have also need to come out as well because they are rotten so it will be a full set upper and lower. I really hope you can help me with this so any advice will be greatly received. Many thanks.
