I Am In The Process Of Applying To Dental School. Do You Have Any Tips For Finding Work Experience In The Dental Industry?

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014
Q.

Good afternoon Dr Gambroudes. I would like your help with something. I am a recent sixth form leaver and I am currently in the process of applying to dental schools to get a dentistry qualification. I was wondering if you could give me some insight into finding any work experience within the dental field to better my chances. I would not really mind about the type of experience, but I feel that any experience within the field of dentistry would be of use to me. I am finding it hard to find this work experience and would just like some advice tips from an expert such as yourself. Thanks for your help.

My Young Daughter’s Teeth Are Decaying And Discoloured. Is There Anything That Can Be Done For Her?

Friday, August 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. My daughter who is 4, has two front teeth that are worn and very discoloured and unsightly looking, I understand these are her baby teeth, but she is already self conscious about them and won’t smile. She also has three back teeth that are decayed and I believe this is due to drinking milk in the night. Is there anything that can be done for her? Her front teeth in particular are chipped and worn with
a thin bit of tooth remaining that makes it look like she has one thin tooth in the centre! As she is now affected by her appearance which is worrying as she is only four! Your opinion is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards.

I Have An Extremely Small Mouth Which Depresses Me. Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Make My Mouth Bigger?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I’d really like to know if you can help me as I have an extremely small mouth. It is about 4.5-5cm wide when I relax it. This makes me extremely self-conscious all the time, and I really despise my face because of this. I cannot do a natural ‘toothy smile’ as it always looks way too forced, but even my closed mouth smile looks awfully small. Is there any kind of procedure or surgery that can be done to make my mouth bigger/wider, or anything I can wear or do? Thank you in advance.

My Amalgam Filling Is Fragmenting And Needs To Be Removed. How Would This Be Done And What Are The Costs?

Monday, June 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have a question I hope you can help me with. What material is used to fill the area that is extracted in an apicoectomy? This is after I’ve had two operations to remove cysts and I also have an amalgam packing from 1977 and 1985 in the same area. This amalgam is now fragmenting and needs to be removed. What is involved in doing this and how successful will the operation be? What is the cost of this and can it be done at a dentist surgery or hospital? I need help understand the procedure. Thank you for your time.

I Am 17 Years Old And I Am Tongue Tied. If I Have A Frenectomy Will There Be A Chance My Speech Will Get Worse?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I wonder if you can help me. I am 17 years old, my problem is not with teeth but with my tongue so please help me if possible.
I have Ankyloglossia – tongue tie and it creates a lot of problems while speaking. This is because the frenum limits the movement of my tongue. So I am considering undergoing a frenectomy.
Do you know of any cases where the speech has deteriorated or worsened after a frenectomy? That’s the only thing I am worried about. I don’t want my speech to be further worsened.
Thank you for your reply in advance.

Hello Dr Moore. My Teeth Are Ridiculously Sensitive. Which Dental Treatment Can Help Me Instead Of Just Using Toothpastes?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Moore. My teeth are ridiculously sensitive, I have tried lots of different toothpastes to try and reduce their sensitivity but nothing will offer me relief. It’s getting very frustrating as it’s everything that is slightly cold or hot causes me pain and toothache. I was basically wondering if there was any dental treatment that could help my teeth instead of just using toothpastes and such? Any advice you can offer would be very much appreciated. I look forward to reading your response, Thank you in advance.

Dear Dr Moore, After Visiting My Dentist For A Filling, I’ve Experienced Sensitivity. What Should I Do?

Friday, April 25th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr. Moore,

After visiting the dentist for re-filling of one of my molars which contains a rather big hole, I have been experiencing very sensitive dentine for more than 3 months. Whenever I eat hot and cold stuff, it hurts badly. I phone the dentist, he suggested me to buy a toothpaste with the brand called Sensodyne to take care of it. I did as he told me. But so far after 3 months, it improves only a little bit. I don’t want to go back to the previous dentist, because he may charge me a lot of money. What should I do? I hope you can help me. Thank you.

I’ve Just Moved And My Son Isn’t Registered. He Has Toothache, Do I Have To Wait Till They Are Open, Or Is There Any Thing I Can Do Now?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My son is 5 years old and is not registered with a dentist as we have not long recently moved. And the past couple of days he has been complaining/crying with toothache. I have been giving him children’s paracetamol but it seems to be getting worse. His school looked in his mouth and said his tooth was growing in the back but when I’ve looked in his mouth and the tooth is a bit black and it looks like it’s got a hole in. Is there anything I could do at this time or will I have to wait till when all the dentist are open? Thank you for your time.

I’ve Started Feeling Some Discomfort After A Deep Cavity Filling. Is It Normal For A Cavity Filling To Take This Long To Heal?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Q.

I had a dentist appointment on for a cleaning. I was not experiencing any problems but my dentist said that I had 2 cavities that needed to be filled. I had those filled a week later. About two weeks later, I started feeling some discomfort, so I went back and he said the bite was off so he did some drilling and had me bite down and said it should be better. I am still experiencing the same problem. I went back a week after that and he did not do anything and told me to be patient. Is it normal for a cavity filling to take this long to heal? I hope you can help me with this.

I Recently Bumped My Tooth Which Has Started To Wobble And Is Hurting A Bit. What Options Do I Have?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I’m 14, and recently I bumped my big adult tooth into something, it seemed a bit wobbly so I became sort of paranoid and began to wobble it. It gradually became looser but it’s not too loose. It’s also hurting a bit. Would I be able to go to my dentist and get brackets to support my teeth because I’m really desperate to get it fixed? I really want there to be another option so my teeth can stay in place. Is there anything I could do to stop in from hurting? Thanks, I hope to get some advice from you.
