I haven’t treated my teeth well and now they are in a bad way, can you offer some advise?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi,

I have SLE as I must admit that I have not treated my teeth as well as I should have due to my fear of dentists however now I feel that my teeth are getting really bad due to my condition and I am embarrased to go out, I have been to my dentist to get help, but what I want to know is can I get any reconstructive help on the NHS for gum repair and missing teeth or anything, I’m only 42 and I want to have the confidence to back out to work ( I am a qualified IT Operations Mgr) but since being made redundant 3yrs ago and applying for numerous roles I haven’t had the confidence to continue applying. I feel very depressed about this, I hope that you can give me some advice.

Many thanks

What can happen to your teeth if you dont take care of them? What do they look like after 5,10 or 15 years of not brushing?

I don’t have any enamel on my teeth, what can I do to look after them to prevent losing them?

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011
Q.

Hi there. I was born without any enamel on my teeth and have had years of pain and constant visits to the dentist to have work done. My dentist has never really advised me on what I can do to help keep the decay at bay, although I do follow the hygienist’s advice on brushing and flossing. Can you offer an opinion? The state of my teeth is really affecting my confidence and I am developing a fear of the dentist. My Father lost all his teeth at 17 due to this and I am terrified of the same happening to me (I am now 29). Many thanks!

I have acid erosion at the back of my front teeth, and crooked chipped teeth that I hate(front top teeth). I was just wondering what would be the best treatment for this and what would be the average treatment price I would be expected to pay?

If I have a pocket in my gum is there anything I can do to prevent it getting worse or stop my teeth from falling out?

Thursday, December 9th, 2010
Q.

hi doctor,i have been asking several people and still haven’t got any clear answers.i am hoping you can help.my two front teeth are slightly loose and when i went to see my dentists she said i had a tiny pocket but didn’t do anything else.i have to wear a mouth guard at night as i grind my teeth but was wondering what,if anything,i can do to prevent them from loosening anymore and falling out.i really don’t want to lose them.i have read up in case i do lose them about having a bridge,but i was wondering if i could have it as the two teeth next to the front ones are healthy but one of my fangs(as i call them)on my right side is slightly clicking.any advise would help,i thought i might add that i have started using corsodyl toothpaste and mouthwash as my dentist did tell me to use them,but im not sure what they would do to help.could you explain what they do if anything aswell.many thanks

Why does my son suffer from bad tooth decay if he has good dental hygiene?

Friday, December 3rd, 2010
Q.

Hi
My son had bad tooth decay as an infant and lost several teeth.I cleaned his teeth twice a day and he ate and drank an average amount of sweet stuff.He`s14 now and his teeth are rotting again. I’ve had endless arguments with my dentist as to the cause of such decay when he really does look after his teeth.My other 2 children`s teeth are perfect and always have been.They are the ones that I always have to remind to clean their teeth.My son has strange markings on his teeth which have always been there and were also on his milk teeth.
Please advise on any causes because I will not accept this is down to mere neglect.We are out of our minds with this.
