How Can I Restore My Smile?

Friday, February 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi. When I was a teenager I was in an accident which basically ruined my teeth. After my first child and with a horrific fear of dentists but an even bigger pain in my mouth I decided together my teeth ‘sorted’ once and for all, I was put to sleep in an operation which I thought was to remove 4 teeth, when I awoke 10 had been taken out as they were just crumbling. I’m now 24 with a bridge across the front of my mouth and substantial gaps, I have no bottom teeth except my front 6, I hate smiling, I hate everything about them, eating is near enough impossible. I can’t even remember the last crusty roll/biscuit I ate, at least before I didn’t have to worry about my gaps showing or my bridge falling out. What are my options? I’m with a new dentist now and even though I have had drastic teeth removal my other teeth are basically crumbling too, the damage is done. Is there anything I can do?

My Filling Has Come Out and My Tooth is Broken. Is This an Emergency?

Thursday, November 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My (I think it’s called a canine tooth, it’s 3rd tooth from the front to the left) has had a filling on it from when it broke in half about two years ago. The filling has come out, and I’m left with half a tooth again. Is this counted as an emergency? Or will I have to wait two weeks as that’s the only date they can see me? I don’t have any real pain but I am finding it very hard to eat and my tooth feels funny a lot of the time. Thank you in advance.

My Front Tooth Fell Out Recently After Having Root Canal Treatment To Clear The Decay Out. Can I Get A Cut Price Deal To Sort This?

Friday, October 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. My front tooth has recently come out, and about a year ago I went to the dental university in agony as half of it had broken due to decay inside my tooth, they performed a root canal on that tooth and over the months it got worse. The colour of the tooth was black. It was not attractive to look at at all. I work less than 13 hours a week and I am desperate for dental work but I just cannot afford to pay up to £3000, as I just don’t have that kind of money. I was wondering if dentists did a price plan with patients who are on a low wage/income as I cannot stay looking like this and I need my smile back.

Good Afternoon! I Want 3 Teeth Extracted And My Teeth Straightened. Can I Get A Price For This?

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
Q.

Good afternoon! I wanted 3 of my teeth extracted as 2 are broken and 1 has grown behind a tooth which has caused me to be self conscious. I also wanted my teeth straightened with braces and I would like some advice on my canines at the top as I would like them to be symmetrical instead of taken out. I have had issues for many years and I wish to progress my lifestyle and push pass these problems. Would I be able to get a consultation and a price?

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 An Abscess At A Root Which Has Developed Over A Period Of 18 Months. Would This Prevent Me From Having A Same Day Implant?

Monday, September 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes, If I was a suitable candidate in all other respects, could a same-day implant be fitted to an upper first molar which has been identified as having a failed root canal treatment and where the X-ray shows an abscess at root which may have been developing for a minimum of 18 months – The crown has been taken off by a former dentist of mine in error and I’m now left with just the bottom 4 bits of tooth just below gum line. I need this treatment ASAP as I don't really want to wait the 3 months healing time needed after extraction of the broken tooth if necessary.
