Tuesday, October 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus. I’m 44 years old and I have some teeth missing, mainly the back teeth and the rest are so worn down I don’t want to smile. It’s really affecting my life and my confidence, my wife has even started to comment on them. I can’t even eat a packet of crisps without them hurting. What can I do and where do I start? I really hope you can help me. Thank you for your time in advance.

My Tooth Is Failing With Gum Recession And Is Attached To My Bridge. What Are My Options?

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I lost a central incisor as a child having been knocked off my bike and I’ve had a bridge attached to my other one ever since ( Maryland bridge). I’m now 30 years old and the tooth that’s remaining is failing with gum recession around my remaining central incisor with a dark root and it needs to be extracted. To avoid a bone graft, I’m looking to get both my laterals extracted and implants placed to support 4 unit bridge. Would this be possible for me as I can’t afford bone graft along with a gum tissue graft to correct the effected area. Thank you.

Would I Qualify For Fast Braces When I Have Two High Fangs? I Need Straight, White Teeth ASAP!

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus, Could you tell me the best way to have straighten the teeth quickly if you have 2 high teeth (fangs) in the upper gums. I need this done quickly as jobs depend on this and I need straight white teeth asap. I have thought about having veneers but I’m not sure of the best place to go, either here or abroad. I would be very grateful for your advice, and if going abroad will be a lot cheaper could you advise me of someone reputable please. I basically need to know if I need to have the fang teeth removed and whether would this solve the problem?

I Have Been Told That I Would Need My Jaw Aligned Before Having Fixed Braces? Does This Sound Correct?

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I’m 22 years old and an nhs patient. I recently went to see a dentist and he said I needed a fixed brace and 2 teeth out to make room for my 4 teeth at the front which are overcrowded. Years ago, I was told that I couldn’t have braces because my jaw isn’t correct and unless I had my jaw cracked into place. I have chosen not to have my jaw cracked and recently this dentist said that it is possible to have fixed braces. This is confusing. I was also wondering whether I have to pay the nhs for braces or not? Thanks.

I Seem To Get Charged A Different Amount Each Time I Have A Filling. Is This Fair Or Accurate?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I visited my dentist recently and had a permanent filling in my left sided tooth and they used cotton wool and some kind of gel to fill this permanently. I wanted to ask whether cotton wool is safe and hygienic for permanently filling the cavity tooth. I’ve been charged different amounts for each filling I’ve had and would like to know if this is fair. Please help me as I don’t know if I’m being ripped off. What would you suggest? Thank you for your time.

I Have Two Missing Front Teeth And I Would Like To Know How Much It Will Cost For A Dental Implant?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. Good afternoon, I just want to ask you about how much it’ll cost for dental implant? I have two missing teeth at the front. This makes smiling or taking a photograph on social occasions very difficult and I would like to have this fixed. Could braces close this gap or would it have to be a dental implant? And do you know of any special offers for this type of treatment. Thank you for your time in advance.

I Have One Chipped Front Tooth And The Other Is Large And Wonky. What’s The Best Option For This?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Gambroudes. I have two big front teeth with a large gap. One of these is chipped and the other is moving outwards making the gap larger and wonky. Please can you suggest what I can do? What’s the best option for this? What cost is involved? And could I have treatment on the NHS as I’m not working at the moment?

It’s really making me depressed and I’m not leaving my house and my job ended because my confidence is zero. I am now suffering from aggraphobia because I don’t want to leave the house and meet people.

Please help. Thank you.

How Can I Reduce The Gap Between My Front Teeth Without The Use Of Braces?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Gambroudes. How do I reduce the gap between my front teeth. I have actually had my braces put back 1 year, but this gap has re-occurred. Can you suggest to me any ideas to get rid of this gap? I had this gap before and I had braces put in to close it. I don’t want to have braces any more because I had them for almost 2 years and I had a retainer but it still came back again. Is there anything that can be done without putting braces on? The gap is not that much but it is uncomfortable for me. Thank you for your time.

My Two Front Teeth Stand Out More Than My Others. They Sometimes Cause Me Pain. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, Dr Gambroudes. My upper front two teeth stick out a lot more than my other ones and they are significantly bigger whilst also being bent. I’m 20 years old now so I doubt there’s much chance they’ll fix themselves now. I think they’ve been like this for quite a while now but its only begun annoying me in the past year as I’ve become really self conscious. I also suffer from pain in these two teeth on and off. If I wanted to go about fixing this what are my options? I really suffer from a lack of self confidence as I’ve become more and more aware about these problems. Thanks.

My Teeth Are Crowded And I’m Uncomfortable With The Way My Smile Looks. Should I Have Braces?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. 12 years ago I lost an upper tooth when I was young. My other teeth came together to fill the gap but know I can’t smile in front of other people as I don’t feel comfortable with the way it looks. Now one upper tooth is too big compared to the others which are small. I think I need a gap filling through the use of braces. Can you tell me if this would help? I have never been to a dentist so I don’t know what to do really. Please provide me with information about what should I do. Thank you very much.
