I Have A Chipped Tooth And My Amalgam Filling Shows Through. Can I Have The Filling Replaced?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I would like your help. My main concerns are with two teeth. May I have your view to what is the best solution as:
My bottom tooth is chipped inwards showing the whole amalgam filling? I would like to replace the amalgam filling with a white filling and I would like the chipped tooth mended without the crown in place. How is this possible and how is it mended? Also I would like to ask you what’s the best and strongest filling to mend the top tooth (near the gum). Thank you for your help and advice in advance.

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.

Is There A Cheaper Alternative To An Implant That Wouldn’t Compromise The Health Of My Surrounding Teeth?

Thursday, March 6th, 2014
Q.

I had to have my upper “1st molar” tooth removed due to having a really bad filling done by an NHS dentist where they weakened and killed my tooth causing it to split in half when I was chewing. Since having it removed I haven’t had anything put in to replace the tooth. However I have noticed the lower “1st molar” has started to rise up as it is higher than the other lower level teeth. I am worried if I don’t have something done to replace the upper “1st molar” this will cause me more problems? I wanted to go for the implant however I’m unsure how much it will be and do not think I can afford to do that at present and was wondering if there was an alternative that wouldn’t affect the health of my other surrounding teeth?

I Wonder If You Can Help Me. My Teeth Are Discoloured But I’m Not Sure My Fillings Will Whiten. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I wonder if you can help me. I feel my teeth are quite discoloured I would just get them whitened but many years ago I chipped both of my front teeth whilst on holiday. This was rebuilt by a dentist that morning. They were fine but I feel the bottom of my 2 front teeth are quite thin and don’t look right. Basically as the bottom of these teeth are not my own I’m not sure if they will whiten? Also one of my K9 teeth has a filling on the front and the whole tooth is very discoloured. I’m at a loss as to what my best options are and to be honest the very top of my budget would be £1000, could you advise me please?

My White Fillings Feel Bulky In My Mouth. Can I Have Them Safely Removed?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi. I recently had two front teeth filled with white filling and I’m not satisfied with the results. It feels bulky in my mouth, and I can feel pressure dragging down on my teeth constantly. There is also pain in my gum, right above the middle between the two teeth.

Can I safely remove them and have my original shape back? If the dentist has only “smoothed” the surface of the chipped tooth, does this mean my original tooth is shorter in length or not? I am very stressed about this, it has hugely impacted my mood and I wish I didn’t do it. If they fall out, do I have to replace them or not and do they stain over time?

Thanks.

How Easy Is It For A Dentist To Spot An Abscess?

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I hope you can help me. I underwent an initial root canal treatment for a lower molar, the dentist also discovered an abscess which he removed.

Two weeks prior to the root canal treatment he X-rayed my tooth and proceeded to fill it, he hadn’t noticed the abscess or the dead root. How easy are these to spot? He then had to remove the new filling and start the initial root canal procedure.

However two days later my jaw and glands are still extremely swollen and sore, is this normal, or at least is it to be expected?

I look forward to receiving your response.

Regards.

I Don’t Want A Brilliant ‘Hollywood’ Smile, Just One I Can Be Confident In. What Would It Cost Me To Feel Confident Again?

Friday, February 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have quite bad teeth at the moment. What would be the rough cost of getting them fixed. I don’t want a Hollywood smile or brilliant white teeth, I just want them normal and to feel confident when I smile. I have fillings in nearly all my teeth and four are missing and I think at least two other teeth need to be extracted. Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.

Hi, I Have A Crack In My Tooth Which Has Had A Filling Put On It. I Still Think My Gum Is Infected. Should I Get A Second Opinion Or Wait Till It Heals?

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I emailed you regarding an infection I had in my gum. I have now realised that the problem I was having was due to a crack in my tooth. The crack was located on my upper front tooth near the gum. The tooth was sensitive to hot and cold temperature, there was pressure in the tooth and there was swelling of the gum. I was taking antibiotics from the doctor but the gum is still swollen slightly. It used to get irritated but the irritation has gone. I went to see my dentist who filled it with a filling. She didn’t seem to know much about cracked teeth. I had this done today and when I had it the pressure seemed to have reduced but as I’m putting pressure on that tooth, the pressure is still there but less than before. I was thinking that the gum needs time to heal because as the tooth was cracked and food was getting inside the gum causing an infection, it didn’t get a chance to heal. Could this mean the pulp is damaged? Should I wait for it to heal or get a second opinion? Thanks.

I Don’t Like Pain Or Needles – What Are The Alternatives For People With Dental Phobia?

Monday, February 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Kailesh. My teeth have been sensitive to cold for over a year now so I had it filled but the filling keeps coming out so now it gets more sensitive to cold in my teeth. I don’t like needles, so could you tell me if there is any other way to have it taken out?  I’m one those people who don’t do pain or needles, so if there is any other way of taking it out then I would love to hear about it. I don’t like needles because the last time I had a needle in my gums didn’t go down till 2 weeks later. I couldn’t eat or drink or brush my teeth in the morning or night because I was in so much pain and that was about 7 years ago now. People have been telling me it only takes 2 minutes – not even that – but I hope to have it out soon and I’m hoping that it doesn’t happen the way it did 7 years ago. I hope you can help me.
