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.

Will a Single Veneer Improve My Smile?

Friday, October 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have one tooth on the top set that is set back from the other front two teeth, making it look like a really small tooth spot and when I have pictures taken, on one side it can look like the tooth is missing all together. It really is knocking my confidence. I can’t smile properly without being nervous. I have seen pictures of other patients with teeth worse than mine and they have veneers. Will a single veneer sort this out? Thank you.

My Mother’s Tooth Has Broken at the Gum Line. Should She Have Treatment?

Friday, October 2nd, 2015
Q.

My mother, who is 95 (and by the way her maiden is Hughes!) had a lower tooth of her six remaining front teeth break off at the gum line.
She is not in any pain and part of the dentin is seen in the center of where the crown was and not much redness or damage.
My question is:  Because she has Alzheimer’s and is 95, would it be better to let the gum tissue grow over the hole left if it can, instead of pulling it and causing perhaps unnecessary trauma or worse to my mom’s health?

Can A Person with Epilepsy Have Dental Implants?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My dad is epileptic and we wanted to know if he can have the screw-in teeth? His teeth are very bad and he has gum disease and some teeth missing. He is very concerned about his teeth and his grandchildren always point it out to him. Is there anything that can be done? It is through no fault of his own as he brushes and flosses his teeth twice a day. It is really getting him down, there must be something that can be done surly?

Are There Any Gum Reconstruction Options to Restore Smile Aesthetics?

Thursday, August 27th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have advanced periodontitis with some bone loss and gum recession. I’ve been reading a lot about LANAP. I’m petrified of scaling and planing and of losing more gum line. My first question is how do I find a certified dentist who performs LANAP? I live in Oxfordshire but can travel, I cannot risk being “ripped off” in any way and want to do my research well. Secondly are there options for bone / gum reconstruction to restore the aesthetics of my smile that I now hide away? Thank you for any advice. Kindest regards.

My Teeth Are Broken and Black. What Can Be Done?

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015
Q.

I am 71 and my teeth are broken and black. Could it be helped with a product, or could I have them all out? It would be nice to smile and talk to people without them commenting on my black teeth.

I would like them out but due to ill health and having a heart attack in 2006, is it wise to have this
done at my age? They do not hurt, some of them have broken off and left the root in my gums. They look unsightly to my family and friends, and most of all
myself when I look at them in the mirror.

What’s Wrong With My Bridge?

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have a 3 piece bridge on the upper right side. The gum smells awful and my other half complains of the smell. My regular dentist said it looks fine. A water/air floss helps for 1-2 hours. There has been lots of bleeding but it has stopped since using Corsodyl in water floss. Also, I get sort of a suction effect where my cheek can be pulled into the bridge area with a sucking motion. I’m not sure exactly which part. Do you have any thoughts or treatment suggestions? Was a bridge a bad idea? That’s what I’m thinking now. Kind regards.

What Orthodontic Procedures Would Work for an Inward Growing Tooth?

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have a retainer to straighten a crooked tooth, but now it has lost its strength and the tooth has gone back to being crooked. The tooth was crooked because it grew behind a milk tooth. This milk tooth had failed to come out and the permanent tooth had no space but to grow behind it. The milk tooth was eventually removed but the permanent tooth replacing it had already grown inward. I want it to be straightened again. The retainer was placed in 2002. Which orthodontic procedures do you recommend? Thank you.

Are There Any Alternatives to Dentures?

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I currently have three missing top right teeth and have a denture, but it’s making me gag and I’m finding it very hard to eat and drink. It is also rubbing on my supporting teeth and making holes. I brush twice daily and have a healthy diet. My teeth are making me very depressed and my dentist isn’t very supportive. I have always had a fear of the dentist and when I lost my first adult tooth I was brave and went to a dentist. At first he was friendly but now I feel that he just does what he likes with my teeth and he doesn’t listen to me and about how I feel and what I want my teeth to look like. I am currently out of work so I understand some things are not available on the NHS but it is causing me serious depression and my children keep asking me why I have funny teeth. I never smile in pictures or want to talk to people, this has caused me to be come very un-sociable.

What is the Most Affordable Cosmetic Treatment for Dental Fluorosis?

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have severe – and I mean severe – fluorosis which I find a liability on my social and economic life. What is the most affordable cosmetic treatment for dental fluorosis? I was born abroad in a Florine heavy part of Africa where almost everybody had the problem. All my teeth are discoloured (brown and dark brown). I am not looking for an expensive cosmetic solution, what I need is a less invasive and affordable solution. Thank you.
