Should my jaw hurt after having amalgam fillings

Friday, September 25th, 2009
Q.
Hi, I had two amalgam fillings yesterday morning, one in an upper left molar and the other in a lower left molar. The top filling was fine but the lower tooth was agony when the dentist drilled and I had to be given a further two injections to make it bearable. Where I had those injections is still very sore and my jaw muscle hurts too much for me to open my mouth wide enough to eat or talk loudly. Should my jaw still hurt this much and why didnt the anaesthetic work? I still have another filling to go but am now too scared to go back.

What is the better option for rebonding?

Thursday, September 24th, 2009
Q.
I have booked an appointment with you to get some advice about what to do with my old bonding on the front of my two front teeth.I think I would want them rebonded as it has lasted me 20 years its now looking old and worn and I think it needs improving.(Its to close the gap diastema)Reading this website it advises to go to a dentist who is really artistic in this area of cosmetic dentistry.When you click on the website to see which dentist does it in my area yours doesnt come up so I am not sure if you really offer this. Also If you do I was wondering whether you use hfo enamel plus material as I am told it is really strong. The reason why I am asking lots of questions is because I am quite scared of getting it redone and I want to improve the look of my teeth.please can you let me know so I have time to cancel the appointment if I need to. Thankyou.

Why is there dark staining on teeth inspite of adhering to oral hygiene standards?

Thursday, September 24th, 2009
Q.
Since moving back to New Zealand 2 years ago I now suffer from dark staining on my teeth.I have not drunk tea or coffee for over 25 years , no red wine either.I do drink cammomile or peppermint tea. I use a good electric tooth brush & brush for over 2 mins twice per day & floss at night, my husband can attest to my oral hygeine standards, I used to nurse in the dental department of my training hospital.I am dairy & gluten free. Could it be something in our water? We have filtered on the fridge but not for the kettle on the main tap? We only used filtered water in the UK . Your advice would be appreciated as my dentist is at aloss to the cause, I see him every six months and the problem is getting worse between visits. With kind regards

My front two teeth are crooked what can i do?

Saturday, September 5th, 2009
Q.
Hello, I have teeth that i am very happy with except for one of my front two teeth. One of the front two teeth i have seems to stick out or be in front of my other teeth. I absolutely do not want braces but i still want to fix that one tooth. I don’t think its a major crookedness if you may call it, but i still want to fix it because it makes my other teeth look kind of crooked. Is there anyway i can get this one too in the front fixed without getting braces?

Dear Dr Bohara I am 20 years old, nearly 21. My problem is my upper front two teeth overlap each other and has caused one to stick out as it is covering half of the other tooth. As you know at this age not having braces would be prefered. Could i take on the 6 month smile plan? Thank you
