I Can’t Bring Myself To Get Into The Habit Of Brushing. Will My Teeth Fall Out Before I’m 21?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I am 18 and I have been going to the dentist for as long as I can remember, when I was 7-10 yearS old I had all of my baby teeth removed due to an addiction to sweets as a child, after that point in time my adult teeth can through. When I as 14 I had to go to the orthodontist to have braces as my teeth were unaligned when they grew through. Ever since I was a young boy I never got into the habit of brushing my teeth, hence having at least 1 filling on each tooth which is what I have now. Even though I myself am very upset and embarrassed about my teeth I still cannot get into the habit of regularly brushing my teeth. I have recently got really bad decay and all of my tooth enamel is gone. I am especially concerned about losing all my teeth by the time I’m 21 and I seriously do not want that to happen. A few factors which need to be set are that I’m also a smoker and I know this will/can cause mouth cancer but I enjoy smoking and am not looking to quit any time soon. Is there any advice you can give me.

I Have Had A Discoloured Bridge For The Past 20 Years. Is There Anyway To Whiten This To Match The Shade Of My Other Teeth?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus, I have a bridge which is over 20 years old and it has never been as white as my natural teeth. I cannot afford to have a new one made at this time. Is there any way in which I could get it whitened as it is making me very depressed as it looks awful. Also, my dentist told me it would be a lot of work to go through to have a new bridge, which scares me. It would be great if there was some way of just whitening it. Please let me know if there a cosmetic procedure I could have without loads of pain. Thank you.

I’m 16 Years Old, Would This Be Too Young To Get A Dental Implant?

Monday, September 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello. My front tooth is crooked. It came out twisted just about 180 degrees turned. I have got braces on and was told that the root was a claw shape and it was risky to turn it. The orthodontist said that they were instead, going to have a crown put on it.
After some research on what a crown is a few months later, I have decided that I don’t want my tooth to be ground down. I have called my orthodontist to ask about changing the procedure. They set up a meeting in 20 days to talk to them about the procedure.

The other front tooth is healthy and I would much rather have a real front tooth than a crown. The front tooth is the first part people see of your smile and I don’t want issues like it being a different shade to the other teeth, or the crown falling off. I know they can last a lifetime but so can a real tooth.

I am also only 16 years old and I thought that my teeth would last me my whole life. I think I am too young to be getting a fake tooth.

What should I ask/tell my orthodontist to help me in this situation? Is a crown the only way to go? Thanks.

I Need Some Dental Implants But Cannot Afford To Get Them. Could You Help Me With This?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes,
I am in desperate need of dental work. I know that I need some implants as well as a bridge etc. Unfortunately the cost involved is so high and unaffordable to myself so time is just passing by while I do nothing? I am happy to pay a fee for any dentistry but cannot pay the £1500 per implant?
I would be happy to travel anywhere in the Country! Could you help please? Many thanks.

I Have Gaps Caused By Gum Disease. Please Could You Advise Me On What I Could Do To Fill These Gaps?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have two gaps in my teeth, one gap is on the bottom row and one gap is on the top row of teeth.
They aren’t that large and I do have adjacent teeth. Both gaps are close to the gum so you can see through it a bit and it makes me very nervous talking to people.
Also they are not from a missing tooth it was from gum disease. I had that which caused pockets to appear and then gaps. Please could you advise me on what I could do to fill the gaps?

I Had My Veneers Filed Down But Now They Are Too Small. Would Cosmetic Bonding Help In This Case?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Gambroudes, I recently got composite veneers, 8 top and 8 bottom. However when I first saw them I thought they were two long and bulky so I asked to get them shaved down a bit. But now that I’ve had them I feel as if they are too short as I have quite big lips and unless I am smiling really big you can’t really notice that I have even had my teeth done. I’m regretting my decision to have them shaved down. Is there anyway I can go back and add more composite bonding to make them a tiny bit longer in length? Or what are my other options? I’m really unhappy and am sad everytime I look at them. Kind regards.

I Have A Missing Front Tooth And The Partial Denture Makes Me Ill. How Can I Afford A Dental Implant?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus. I have lost a front tooth and I’m only in my twenties. I can’t go out any more or see anyone apart from family. My dentist gave me a denture on a plate but there’s no way I can have it in. I’m sick as soon as it’s in my mouth. I’m a single mum with 2 children and I’m getting worse everyday. I was very bubbly and out going and working with loads of friends but now I’m a different person all because of one tooth. My dentist doesn’t provide implants or anything like that and I have got a family wedding coming up but I’m not going because of this. I can’t pay for an implant weekly because I can’t get credit anywhere. What should I do?

I Have A Two Teeth Growing At The Top Of My Gum And I Think My Teeth Have Moved. Is This Possible?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Marcus, I am 12 years old and I think my teeth went forward or back as when I close them and put my teeth down it feels strange.
Like there is a tooth in the way. I also have 2 teeth growing on top of the gum. When I close my mouth the teeth on the left it feels like one is in the way. Please help me. How do I know if my teeth came forward and how do I get them to look like they are on my top left next to the top big teeth – the one on the left of the big tooth is behind the bottom left teeth? Is this right? Thank you.
