Thursday, March 4th, 2010
Q.
On the 5th Jan I had a crown fitted on a tooth that had broken my previous dentist said thet due to age teeth become brittle and she tried to repair it. I change my dentist to one nearer home and they fitted a crown since then I have been back with pain. The third week I went back and root canal treatment was performed. Last week I was due to have the root canal treatment finished but I had pain in my lower jaw and a slight ear ache I asked the dentist to give me some antibiotics ib case there was any infection and could I have the root canal treatment finished the following week which I am due on tuesday. I still have some pain but painkillers help. What should I do,

What can be done about teeth that are breaking apart?

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010
Q.
Dear Dr Justin Glaister, Well, I do not know where to start. Firstly I have to get rid of my wisdom teeth (the pain is killing me), and then I have a problem with basicly all my other teeth. My teeth will start breaking bit by bit, starting near the root, and it hurts badly, I have about 10 teeth that is broken. I could not eat for the past few days and whenever I drink hot or cold drinks it hurts. My dentist in south africa said that it is a shortage off calsium. I had this problem since I was 14 (now 22). I live in Swanage, Dorset, England, BH191AN. Is there any advise you can give me in this matter? Regards,
