Dear Dr Moore, Could You Tell Me How I Can Find Work Experience In The Cosmetic Dentistry Field?

Friday, December 20th, 2013
Q.

Dear Dr Moore,
I would first like to say thanks for taking the time to answer my question, but feel I should warn you that I am not seeking advice as a patient, but as a ‘wannabe-dentist.’ I am only 15 years old, but have been interested in the world of cosmetic dentistry for a while now. I was wondering what sort of other websites/magazines/books would expand my knowledge? Also, could you recommend any practices for work experience? I would be grateful for any advice you could give in starting out.
Thanks in advance.

My Girlfriend Has Fluorosis Throughout Her Teeth. Can It Be Removed Naturally Or By A Dentist?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
Q.

My girlfriend is 23 years old and has fluorosis pigmentation throughout her teeth. Can it be decreased or removed naturally or through a dentist? I have found some natural remedies given in other websites but they all are meant for children. Can this be cured for adults? I am not sure whether she has undergone a treatment during childhood which has caused this. Could you help us solve this problem as I find it difficult to find much information on the condition for adults. Thank you, I look forward to hearing your reply.

I’ve Not Been To The Dentist For 20 Years And My Teeth Are Becoming Discoloured. Does This Mean I Have An Underlying Problem?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. I havent been to the dentist for 20 years so a little bit worried about going. I have noticed of late I have a back tooth that is very sensitive and causing issues when I am chewing. I also have 1 wisdom tooth that doesn’t look great it looks really discoloured and another which hasn’t yet come through but you can see it. I am starting to get worried about my teeth as they all seem to look a little discoloured these days. Does discolouration mean I have bad teeth. Please help.

Regards.

I’m Thirteen And Can’t Tell If My Lateral Incisor Is Broken Or Not As It’s Loose. What Should I Do?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013
Q.

Hey, I’m 13 years old and I don’t really know anything about teeth, but I haven’t lost many baby teeth, probably around 5-10, but my lateral incisor is loose, and I can’t tell if it is broken or not and would like to know if you’ve heard of this before? The tooth is whiter than others, but if I pull it back, its only attached to the back of my gums, but the rest of it, (or the new tooth). If I look at it, where the bottom is, the part that is attached, fits nicely in the hole of the broken part. The tooth is getting looser, but I don’t know if its broke somehow, or if a new ones coming in. Any advice or information on this would really help? Thanks.

Will I Have A Scar On My Face If I Get Jaw Alignment Surgery?

Monday, December 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I am 17 and I have recently been to see the orthodontist about getting braces (After being on the waiting list for quiet a while). I have really poorly shaped teeth, and you can’t see my bottom teeth because of my top teeth (I think this is called an overbite, I’m not too sure). The orthodontist recommended that I have surgery to bring my bottom jaw forward, would I be able to get this free or would I have to pay for my surgery? Please could you tell me a little bit about it, and would I have a visible scar on my face if I went through with the operation? Thank you.

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.

I Am Constantly Getting Gum Disease As I Have Gaps In My Teeth. Can The Gaps Be Filled In Any Way?

Friday, December 13th, 2013
Q.

I am constantly getting gum disease, I am 61 and visit the dentist regularly. I have gaps between nearly all of my teeth, and with age I suppose and fed up of picking food from my teeth every single time I eat food. Can you tell me if the gaps can be filled or what can be done as I need to sort this problem out? My dentist says that I cannot have the gaps filled, this problem is driving me mad. I hate going to the dentist for the hygienist to clean my teeth as it really hurts, my gums are very sore at the moment and this is due to gum disease yet again.

I Notice That I Have A Stain That Has Developed Near My Filling. Why Is This?

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013
Q.

Hi Mark. I have a front tooth which already has a filling in it, but I have noticed where the filling is there appears to be a spot of some sort, like a brown stain on the tooth. Why is this? Does the filling have to come out and treated to be refilled. The filling has been in there for a few years but now I am worried that I might lose the tooth or the staining might spread. I would be most grateful for your help. I have no problems with other teeth but I would like to know why this has happened.

I Noticed My Gum Was Sore The Other Day With A Hole Below The Gumline. Any Suggestions On What This Can Be?

Thursday, December 5th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help, I noticed today that my gum was a bit sore in my front tooth. I took a look and discovered I have a small hole on the top of my tooth under my gum. Is this just a cavity or something worse? I have always noticed that my gum on that side was lifted higher than my other tooth. My dentist has never seemed concerned about it but I am not aware if this hole was previously there before. Any suggestions on what this can be? I am trying to contact my dentist but before then could you offer any help or advice that would really put my mind at ease. Thank you.

I Can’t Sleep As My Tooth Is Really Painful. Do You Know What Is Causing This?

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013
Q.

Good morning. I just want to ask how I could release the pain in my tooth because inside my right front tooth it’s really painful I can’t even touch it because it’s so painful and it’s affecting the others sometimes? I haven’t slept all night because of the pain the only way to reduce the pain is when I drink cold water and take Ibuprofen but most of the time it doesn’t work. Do you have any idea why this is? Do I need to see my dentist? Many thanks, I really hope you can help me Dr Gambroudes.
