What can be done to fix loose teeth and receding gums caused by pregnancy?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

My daughter is 41, she has 5 children and after each pregnancy her teeth has become loose, her gums are receeding. She need help and advice. When she went to her local dentist he told her she would have to have her teeth take out and be without teeth for 3 weeks, all sound pre historic, I have read your very impressive profile and would like your opinion on my daughter teeth. Many thanks for your help,

Am I doing the right thing by wearing a bite appliance to help breath easily?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

Hi, fi have been seeing a orthodontist in london i have a narrow maxillar this effects my breathin and struggle to breath through my nose. Also this really effect my articulation as my tonge will not go intio the back of the mouth as it should be for speen and keeps coming forward. It is costing me £7000 with the orthodonticst he has fitted a bite appliance to bring my lower jaw forward and also to widen the upper arch. I know this is what needs to be done as the arch is high. I have been reading on the internet an adults upper arch cannot be widened as the bone is now solid and only the teeth will be tipped and can only be done via surgery. I have been going around the uk seeing different dentist and this is really getting me down.

Pls can you help io am spending a fortune on this.

Thank you

Are there surgical alternatives to wearing a holding brace?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

I have just turned 18 and have been through the first stage of my treatment at my orthodontists. It was a twin block brace, which was in for 14 months and corrected my overbite. I was happy to get out, unfortunately I didnt realise I would have a wear a holding brace with a big plastic block which covers the roof of my mouth and hangs below my front teeth. This brace will then be fitted with a fixed brace to straighten them while maintaining my gums position. I find this brace incredibly intrusive and I would like to know if this treatment is completely necessary. If theres any surgery that can be done and what are the expenses if so.

Can my dentures be made whiter to match remaining teeth?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

HI, I used to have partial denture to my upper jaw but uncomfortable.One of the teeth it replaced was at the front and rest at sides. After a few accidents it broke (easily cos of the 1 tooth at front problem). I only have 8 teeth left (upper) which includes 2 wisdom. These teeth need work on ie; small fillings. I’m contemplating having them all removed for a full top set denture mainly cos i’m 57 and would be better off doing so. Do you think I should do so?? If I decide to go ahead I would like the new teeth to be whiter shade but would then need the bottom teeth to be whitened to match or at least nearly, would this be possible as I want brighter whiter teeth. Thanx

Can you advise how to insure my dental implants?

Monday, April 4th, 2011
Q.

I want to insure my newly installed implants against any future loss or damage and I also would like to take out insurance to cover for any other future implants I may need (result of accident etc.)

Not sure where to go for this, to cover virtually the entire cost of any work that may be necessary.
