What Can I Do About My Gum Recession?

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015
Q.

I have gum recession on one front tooth on the bottom and it’s quite deep. I don’t feel any sensitivity usually. I had a check up 3 weeks ago and my dentist hasn’t mentioned anything regarding gum disease. They just said to ease off brushing that tooth very hard. I used to have a piercing there but I did take this out years ago so I don’t think this is what has caused this. I’m now worried about my other teeth heading this way, I think this one of my back upper teeth is now starting to recede slightly I’m also obviously worried about losing this tooth.

What can I do for this?

Thanks.

Help! I Chipped My Tooth After A Root Canal, And Now I Get A Horrid Taste In My Mouth. What Are My Options?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I need help. I smashed three of my top front teeth out 15 years ago when I was 15, now I am older I am self conscious about the way they look in the mirror. I had a root canal done which was very painful and then I chipped two of them not long after the root canal treatment. Now I think they are a horrid colour and look mouldy. I brush, rinse, and floss every day and try to take as best of care of my teeth the best I can. Do you have any suggestions on what my options are these days? I was thinking that should I get them pulled out and replaced them with false ones. I also get a horrid taste in my mouth. Please help I am at my wits end! Thanks for your time, I await your answer.

I Suffer From Bad Breath, Despite Regularly Brushing My Teeth. What Treatments Are Available To Combat This Problem?

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello Andrew,

I have been suffering from bad breath for many years and now realise that I need to seek proffessional help in order to obtain a long term solution. To give you a brief idea of my problem, I brush my teeth at least twice a day and in the way in which my dentist advises. I also regularly clean my tongue and use mouthwash, but within one hour of my routine, to maintain oral hygeine, I can guarantee that the bad breath will be back. Although my gums are alot better than they used to be, I still believe that it is the gum disease, that my dentist tells me I have, that is the main cause of the problem. Can you advise me of any treatments available that I can undergo to remove this problem from my life.

Kind Regards

I Maintain A Solid Oral Hygiene Routine But My Teeth Are Rotting, What Is The Cause?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr, I am 42 years old and i continuously brush my teeth yet they keep on rotting and i do not know why. I brush my teeth in the morning and before i go to my bed. I have filled many of my teeth. Please help me. I brush my teeth in multiple ways, like circles and up and down an side ways. All of my mother’s teeth have fallen out and she has dentures in and also my brother. I am really distraught and would like to know what could be the cause of this because my confidence is being affected quite badly and I’m scared of what could happen in the future considering my mother and brother’s situations. Thank you, looking forward to your response.

I Didnt Brush My Teeth And Now They’re Yellow, What Should I Do?

Thursday, April 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi. When i was about 10/11 i went through a period of not brushing my teeth. I fully regret that time now because most of my teeth are now yellow and my front two permanent teeth are slightly wobbly. This makes me really insecure because i don’t want to show my teeth. I am now 13 and the last time i went to the dentist i was about 6/7. It also sometimes hurts when i brush my teeth, which i now do twice a day using Pearldrops to try and whiten my teeth. I also use listerine as my mouthwash. My right canine tooth is higher than all of my other teeth and if my mouth is opened in a certain way, you can see a lump where my canine is pushing against my skin. I need advise on what to do… I know i need to go too the dentist but i never have time, i go to a private school making it harder to get certain days off. Please reply:)

My Gums Are Bleeding Due To Gingivitis, Can I Be Cured?

Monday, March 11th, 2013
Q.

Hi Doctor.
Can gingivitis be permanently cured ? I have experience bleeding gums for a couple of
months now and what worries me is sometimes I feel my gums are fine and after couple of days I experience that my gums bleeding again. If I have got gingivitis then I am a bit annoyed and confused to be honest with you. I say this because of my oral hygiene routine, like I am always super aware of whether my teeth are clean and if I have bacteria causing bad breath etc. It seems unfair.  Can these symptoms happen if I am having gingivitis ? I do brush / floss / mouth wash every day and how can it leads to detal conditons ? Can there be othre reasons to get bleeding gums ?
If teeth are cleasned too often can it lead to more sensivity ?
Best Regards.

Is Fluorosis Irreversible?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013
Q.

My daughter of seven years has badly stained teeth from using too much fluoride toothpaste and probably swallowing it. I overbrushed her teeth not realising the negative effects this could have on young teeth. Her self-esteem is affected now and she’s embarassed to smile. Do you have any advice? She’s using a non-fluoride toothpaste now and drinking bottled water. She’s also allergic to dairy products and is taking a calcium supplement. Is the fluorosis irreversible?Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks and we look forward to your reply.

My upper bridge is causing me to have bad breath, why is this?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

hi doctor moore. i have upper bridge which is causing me problems.
despite brushing and flossing daily my wife tells me my breath is really bad, which is extremely embarrassing! i think food particles are getting under the bridge.i cannot afford implants at the moment as i am unemployed. SO could the bridge be sealed in any way to prevent food getting in? i am seriously thinking of getting bridge removed as i am desperate this would leave me with a slight gap in my front teeth but i cannot continue as its very embarrassing and as you can imagine my wife is growing agitated. thank you for your time.

Can gum recession like mine lead to tooth loss?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

Hello Doctor Bohara, i am extremely worried about my front tooth and wondered if you could help me? There is gum recession due hard brushing I believe. I was also told that my perio marking was 0-1 was a 2, and the dentist is pleased. However, i am scared that i will lose my central tooth due to the recession. If this happens how much will it cost to have a dental implant and can I have it done straight away? And do people generally loose teeth with gum recession like mine? Hope you can put my mind at rest. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
