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.

Would a Bridge Solve My Dental Problems?

Thursday, September 24th, 2015
Q.

I have six upper front crowns due to tetracycline staining. They are four years old. One of them has completely broken including the tooth. The others will probably follow suit so I wanted to have all six teeth removed and have a bridge fitted so I no longer have to worry about the next expensive disaster. Embarrassment too. Please tell me this is reasonable. I am 51 and allergic to several dental bonding agents too.

Can I Get Dental Help From the NHS or Will I Need to Go Private?

Thursday, September 24th, 2015
Q.

I had an eating disorder for many years and now my front teeth are very worn and sensitive. They now look more like fangs than teeth due to vomiting and brushing my teeth straight after. Do the NHS help with cosmetic dentistry in cases like mine or would I have to go private and what would the cost be? I have had to have three back teeth removed in the past not because they had rotten, more that the small holes caused by acid caused a great deal of pain. Now I no longer feel like I can smile, I don’t like people to see my front teeth.

How Much Would Teeth Whitening and Six Crowns Cost?

Thursday, September 24th, 2015
Q.

Hi there,

I am looking to get overall teeth whitening and then 6 crowns fitted to my upper row of teeth. I am researching at the moment and wondered if you could help me understand what kind of price to expect? So far I have a quote for £5,500 but I think this seems very high so wanted to get some other opinions. Also, is there anywhere you recommend for this treatment in the Godalming area?

Thanks.

Should My Tooth Still Be Sore 5 Days After Root Canal Treatment?

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015
Q.

I had a root canal done by my NHS dentist and 2 weeks later it was still bothering me. I then went to see a specialist endodontist who performed another root canal procedure (this time taking 2 hours and using a microscope and other specialist equipment). This was 5 days ago. I am able to bite down and eat on this tooth.  It is not sensitive to hot or cold but I would describe it as still aching on and off during the day. I would describe it as being generally sore. Is this normal and can it take a while for the tooth to settle after having all this work carried out on it? I haven’t had the crown put on yet and just have a temporary filling.

I Have Had Many Teeth Removed. How Can I Get My Smile Back?

Friday, June 12th, 2015
Q.

Hello my question today is to ask about implants. Since a young age I have had epilepsy, I’m now 43 and growing up was difficult because of my fits. During said fits I would bite down hard to the point where my teeth would break and chip. Most wre taken out because of this. Adulthood was the same. I wear a plate now and most of my adult teeth are gone. My epilepsy is under control to a degree and not as bad as it was. Is there any treatment for me to have my smile back? It has impacted every area of my life and having a smile would change my life. Many thanks.

How Can I Get Rid of Tooth Sensitivity?

Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Q.

I feel sensitivity in my teeth even when I breath. I’ve used many sensitive toothpastes but had no recovery on a permanent basis. I feel dryness in my mouth when I awake in the morning along with bad breath. I used to brush my teeth before going to bed. Can you suggest something so I could get rid of this situation? I have already visited many dentists but no permanent solution has been found for my problem. Some of my friends told me about online treatment.

Should I Get My Crown Replaced Before it Breaks?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015
Q.

My bridge on the upper right side is 20 years old. My dentist says it could break at any time. One of the teeth it is attached to has had root canal treatment and my dentist has filled it for now. Should I go ahead and replace it before it breaks? I am 72 years old and have several jaw teeth missing and several fillings in the remaining teeth. I have 3 teeth on the bridge and 4 single crowns. My two upper front teeth have large fillings and will eventually need crowns. I am a diabetic and have had lung cancer with a lobectomy last year to remove a tumor. Thank you.

Should I Get My Crown Reduced in Size?

Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Q.

My front crown has been coming forward and now leaves ulcers on my bottom lip. My dentist referred me to an orthodontist. I said that I feel the front jaw is moving forward, she said that I would be better trying to reduce size of the crown as braces take a long time. I do have a overhang and also small chin, but I have also noticed I’m starting to spray as I talk and have woken up a couple of times choking, could this all be part of my jaw alignment and can anything be done? I am 51. Thanks.

Could I Be Having a Toxic Reaction to my Filling?

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015
Q.

I’ve had a dental composite filling done and have had constant headaches ever since that make me vomit and I feel slow with bad concentration and brain fog. I never had headaches or these reactions before the filling – could it be a toxic reaction to the filling? The filling has a strong plastic taste to it which I can detect but have generally been feeling very unwell since it was placed. Have you seen this kind of reaction before in patients? I have an existing immunological disease.
Thanks.
