I Have An Abscess With No Pain But It Won’t Go Away. Should I Have Root Canal Treatment?

Monday, December 23rd, 2013
Q.

I have an abscess on my upper right teeth no. 6. but there is no pain. I wear braces too. I went to a dentist not for a check up last time because there was a swelling on my cheek already but she said it was normal everything is fine because I wear braces. The next day the swelling got worse and was affecting the right side of my face. I went back to the clinic but to another dentist. She said I have an abscess and prescribed Coamoxiclav 1g and Diclofenac and told me to come back after 5 days for RCT. The swelling on my face subsided but the abscess was still there. I went back after 5 days but she didn’t perform RCT because there was no pain. She just pricked the abscess with a needle and prescribed again another Coamoxiclav 1g and Flagyl. She said if there’s pain after, that she will have to extract it. Now the abscess has still not gone and there is still no pain. I didn’t take Coamoxiclav again. I think I might suffer from an overdose if I did. Also I asked her if she would change the filling of my other tooth because it’s too thin already( 8years) but she just won’t unless it hurts. Was she right? Please help. I don’t want to lose my teeth.

I Would Like A More Natural Crown In Terms Of Natural Feel And Texture. What Procedure Would Provide Best Results?

Friday, December 20th, 2013
Q.

Hi. I have a brief enquiry in regards to a crown I currently have over my broken tooth allocated at my front bottom gum which was placed over after my root canal procedure, which was undertaken about a few years ago, however I’m concerned as I wish to have a procedure where the crown is not distinct and actually feels like my natural teeth in terms of feel, colour and texture.
What procedure would be more suitable solely?
As I am very subconscious about my smile.
I was referred to a specialist as a few years post to my root canal the dentists discovered a lump located directly underneath my broken tooth in the gum, with results suggesting the is an infection which will need to be cleaned but am unsure even with that what the best method of approach would be on this concerning matter.
I’m still researching on what would be suitable to my preference with so many options however I’m sure with your expert advice you will be able to assist me accordingly.

Thanks.

The Temporary Cement For My Crown Is Causing Me Unbelievable Pain. Should I Keep The Crown?

Thursday, December 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I had a crown fitted about 6 years ago but it was fitted with temporary cement, the nature of which has not been recorded by my old UK dentist.
It’s now causing me unbelievable pain and swelling and it needs to come out. Only thing is, I would like to keep the crown as it was expensive but need to dissolve the cement and and cap the nerve which I can only guess wasn’t done at the time. I have had to adjust my speech thanks to the incompetence of the dentist and my ill fitted front tooth.
Living in France makes it tricky to get all this done but wondered if you had any advice for me? Can I keep the old crown or shall I just rip it out and get another one or is there an easier, quicker and cheaper solution?
Any help gratefully received.

I Have A New Crown Which Is Too Long And Feels Rough. Should My Dentist Smooth This Down?

Monday, December 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Hughes. I recently had my two top front crowns replaced, when I got home I noticed that the right one was slightly longer on one side. I went back today and my dentist filed the tooth down at the bottom even though he thought it was fine, my issue now is that my tooth feels rough along the bottom and and my upper lip. Is this something he should have smoothed down? I am asking because I felt that he just wanted me out of the chair and that I should not have come back so I don’t really want to call him back. Will it smooth itself over time?

Thank you.

Would It Be Possible To Have A Bridge Fitted To My Crowns Or Would I Need New Crowns At Either Side?

Monday, December 16th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My question is that I got my top four front teeth crowned a few years ago but now my tooth has come out. Would it be possible to have a bridge fitted to my existing crowns or would I have to get new crowns at either side? At the moment I have a single tooth plate but it’s rather problematic as I have to take it out to eat, which isn’t ideal. Do you know of any other treatment I could consider. Any help or advice on this problem would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

My Dentist Told Me That The Decay In My Tooth Will Not Be Removed Before Before An Onlay Is Fitted. Is This Correct?

Friday, December 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I hope you can help me. I have just been to the dentist and it turns out that I require an onlay. I used to have a crown over the tooth but this is no longer possible. My crown recently came out and contained some of my tooth. The tooth is still live. I have no constant pain although at times it is quite sensitive. I was told that the decay in the tooth will not be removed before the fitting. An impression has been taken. Is this correct? Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide.

My Crown On On Of My Molars Has Come Off And There Isn’t Enough To Glue It Back On. What Are My Options?

Thursday, December 12th, 2013
Q.

My crown on one of my molars has come off and there is not enough tooth left to glue it back on. What are my options? My dentist wants to pull it out and to put in an implant. Is that a good answer or is there an other way? The tooth that I have described is worn right to the gum line, is it possible to build it up and re-crown it? The tooth in question does not bother me and it is not sensitive, and most of my teeth have been crowned. My age is 65 and I would like to keep what I have if possible. I have had 4 implants so far and my dentist is wanting to bridge one of the ones he pulled because it was too close to my sinus and I do not have enough bone there to put in an implant.

I Feel My Porcelain Crowns Are Too Bulky. Is It Possible To Thin Them Out?

Friday, December 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I would like to ask if it’s normal for the top part of a front crown, near the gum area to be bulky? It seems to be interfering with my lip when I close my mouth. I asked my dentist about this and they said it wasn’t possible to thin it out, they are porcelain crowns. I also have a dental bridge used for the crowns on all of my front 5 teeth. I strongly feel it makes me appearance look out of place with the bulkiness. I would like to get them re-done but there’s no way would I pay the amount I already paid for, if the bulkiness can be removed. What do you suggest?

I’m Unhappy With The Size Of My Crowns, But My Dentist Has Scared Me From Getting Them Re-done. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have had three of my front teeth fitted with porcelain crowns but I am unhappy with their appearance – my dentist has agreed to replace them. However, two of the teeth are root filled and quite weak. My dentist has scared me by telling me that it’s a high probability removing the crowns will damage whats left of the teeth and he’s not keen on fitting posts – he says they don’t last long and can cause problems. I don’t know whether to just leave them (even though I’ve paid £600 per crown) or chance it and have them redone.
Any advice would be appreciated?
Many thanks.

After Having A Crown Fitted I Now Have A Pulsing Sensation Every Time I Eat. Why Is This?

Monday, November 25th, 2013
Q.

I went to the dentist last week to have a crown fitted on my right lower 6. I’ve had root canal on that tooth already so there is no nerve, I’ve never had pain before but I’m now having pain every time I eat and a pulsing sensation all the time. The dentist did have to resize it several times before cementing.  I think it’s still too high as my bite is not the same as it was before. Do you know whether this pain will settle? Or am I just being a wimp?  I hate going to the dentist but I don’t know how to describe the pain to the dentist and I know there should be no pain as there is no nerve! I also keep wanting to grind my teeth. Any ideas on what I can do?
