My Jaw Is Still Swollen Following Root Canal Treatment, Is This Normal After Two Days?

Friday, March 15th, 2013
Q.

I underwent an initial root canal treatment for a lower molar on Wednesday 6th March, the dentist also discovered an abscess which he removed.

Two weeks prior to the root canal treatment he x-rayed my tooth and proceeded to fill it, he hadn’t noticed the abscess or the dead root, that sparked my curiosity somewhat and got me thinking, how easy are these to spot? I have never had an abscess before so I didn’t know what my problem was and would have expected the dentist to spot it properly. I am grateful he rectified it though. He then had to remove the new filling and start the initial root canal procedure.

However 2 days later my jaw and glands are still extremely swollen and sore, is this normal, or at least is it to be expected?

I look forward to receiving your response.

Regards.

My Partial Dental Plate Has Caused Gaps Which I Would Like Fixed, Could I Get A Bridge?

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013
Q.

I have been wearing a partial dental plate for many years. This has badly affected my gums and I have lost teeth through it. The remaining teeth (all of the front ones) are however solid. But they have gaps between them now as they’ve moved and I wondered about getting a bridge to sort this out. Would this be possible given my previous problems? A dentist upset me a few years ago by telling me she didn’t think it was worth spending any money on my mouth as the x-rays showed too much bone damage. But I really want to have teeth without gaps as its bothering me now. I don’t smoke or drink.

I Am At University And Unhappy With My Smile, How Do I Get This Fixed?

Thursday, March 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I’m very un happy with my smile. My two top front teeth are quite large, but they are square at least, the problem is the two next to them go back a little and are much smaller, which then makes me look a bit goofy! Also the two either side of them, (incisors? i think) come forward a bit and are still a lot smaller and very pointy so when i bite together there are gaps inbetween them and my bottom teeth. Im not sure weather much can be done within my price range, i am a 21 year old student at university and im not sure what the deal is with paying for dental care now, however they are making me very un happy so am willing to work hard to try and get them sorted. if you could perhaps give me a idea of what sort of treatment would work for this i would be very grateful. Im sorry its quite hard to explain, but if i could perhaps send a photo of my teeth to explain better. that would be brilliant too. Thank you

A Tooth That I Had Root Canal Treatment On 15 Years Ago Fell Out, What Do I Do?

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi I wonder if you can help . I had root canal treatment on one of my teeth( I think it was the 3rd one in from the front tooth) around 15 years ago. Everything has been fine up until now with it. I had quite a shock as last night the whole tooth fell out in one piece including two metal posts which are attached to what I presume is a crown . It was such a long time ago I can’t actually remember what treatment I received! It is quite a mystery, anyways obviously I am now very upset to see a gap at the side where the tooth was . Will I be able to just have this replaced by my dentist or will I need a dental implant or worse ?? It could become quite an issue for me if I do not get it fixed so I say, thank you your help would be much appreciated .

I Have A Misplaced Midline, Will My Dentist Allow Me To Get Braces?

Monday, March 4th, 2013
Q.

I’m 14 turning 15, and my teeth are pretty straight for the most part but my insisors are a bit crooked but they look straight. My problem is that I have a misplaced midline because I sucked my thumbs for 11 years. I just noticed a couple weeks ago. I measured it and its about 3.5mm off. It also is very irritating to bite because the lip also feels weird. My mom pointed out that my face is now a bit assymetrical. This is getting to me a little bit and I don’t want it to cause confidence or negative dental health issues in the future. I would rather get it sorted now. Will my dentist allow me to get braces?? If not what other treatment options are available to me? Braces are my preferred choice and as I said having them now when I am younger suits me better, I couldn’t stand having them when I am an adult.

I Want A Hollywood Smile, How Much Would This Cost?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

I was just wondering how much it usually is to have the ‘Hollywood smile’ I have a gap at the front of my teeth, and they’re very small.
I would just like to find out the price to have not maybe a full set but a selected few of top and bottom teeth? I’m not sure what the best option would be, but I would really like to consider this. I just need to know the financial side to things and the best pathway in which to go down. I am very convinced by having this procedure and I think it will give me much much more self confidence as at the minute I do not smile with my ‘teeth’ out. It’s just not me!
Help me help me help me!
Thank you

Q.

Dr Moore please can you help me? I’ve had my two top teeth taken out and have had dentures put in. on my dentures i have seven teeth and when i wear my dentures and am unable to swallow and its making me feel sick because i have bells palsy when it makes me feel sick i do get pain in my face because of the bells palsy. Please can you inform me what’s the best option available to me and should do because when i get pain in my face its unbearable. Could you inform me of how much would it be to have tooth implants for the teeth I currently have missing. I’m only 23 years of age and my job will be finishing in 26 days of the current 6 months scheme I am involved in. Do you believe the NHS would be able to help me pay for the implants or reduce the cost for me ?

What Should I Do About My Impacted Teeth?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013
Q.

I am 26 years old and have impacted canine teeeth in the gum and my baby canine’s remainin intact with some wear. I was wondering if I could get Veneers over the baby canines? I am not confident that getting the impacted canines taken down is worth my time or money at this age as the bones from my understanding are pretty fused at this point. Furthermore I’d have to get braces which is way out of my price range and comfortability!
So are Veneers or are implants the better option? Please help!

Should I Get Invisalign?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013
Q.

A very warm hello to you Dr. Moore,

I am in need of help regarding what would be the best possible treatment for a missing tooth/gap at the front of my teeth. I also need my teeth straightened and was thinking about Invisalign, are there any other treatments which would be best to straighten teeth? I guess I don’t want such a long treatment. I just have a missing tooth at the front and two others that were pulled but apart from that they rest are fine but need straightening.

I appreciate your time and help,

Thank you kindly, I look forward to reading your response.
