How can I get rid of the gap in my teeth?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010
Q.
Hello Im 33 years old, I have a large gap between my top front teeth, (half a centimetre) which Ive had since I was a child, most of the women in my family have it. I hate it & in recent years it has really affected my confidence & made me feel very self conscious, to the point of sometimes I dont go out when it really gets me down. I lost a tooth a couple of years ago and since then the gap has gotten bigger also. What methods are there to get rid of this? I should mention Im pretrified of the dentist. Ive read about bonding, what is it exactly? Could I have the gap filled with gold filling? Or I was thinking even something like putting a jewel in the gap but I cant find a dentist who can do that. My aunt had veneers but the gap was so big her front teeth look too big now. Regards,

I’ve just moved to Edinburgh,can you recommend a reputable cosmetic dentist? If not, should I only choose someone who is a member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry or are there reputable dentists who are not members of the above?,

I feel unfairly treated by my dentist, can you give me some advice?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Q.
I just lost my four front crowns along with my original teeth in an accident, i am left with the four top nerves exposed now and the NHS dentist gave me a denture for now and then told me i would have to raise £10,000 for implants which is never going to happen as i am not working, i am in pain and can barely eat with or without the dentures in and my speech is not the same either. I feel unfairly treated by the dentist and would like some advice please on what to do next?,

Can I have the root canal treatment done in a hospital under anaesthetic?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Q.
Ive just been to the dentist for root canal treatment and the injection to numb wouldnt numb it, i had 2 injections and still i could feel the pain..the dentist has dressed it and given me antibiotics because she says it hurts because its infected, i have to go back in a week to have it done again. I hate going to the dentist and is becoming more of a fear as ive got older, is it possible to have this done under an anescetic in hospital?,

My son doesn’t have any canine teeth, why is this?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Q.
My son is 9, and lost his primary teeth early, and had his adult teeth in very early also. I have just noticed this evening that while he is 12 lower jaw teeth, all the right ones, in his upper jaw, there are no canines on either side, and no room for them as his pre-molars are right next to his incisors. Why has he no canine teeth, and why haven’t the various dentists he’s seen over the years noticed or said anything about this? He has special needs, and could this be any sort of congenital or chromosomal abnormality? I’m worried!,

I think I have pyaria, what can I do to slow or stop the process?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Q.
Hey Doc, I have a question about pyaria. Now, unlike the other places I have visited and read up on this, my teeth are not crooked, or rotted, nor any other imperfection. I have never had braces or a retainer or even a cavity- they’re perfectly straight and white. Howevever, I have noticed that a couple of areas around my gums are pulling back much like my mother’s did who has pyaria. I am only 20 years old and do not feel like having all of my teeth fall out by the time I’m 30. Is there anything I can do to slow this process or stop it?,
