Why Do My Teeth Seem to Have Moved Forward?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016
Q.

Hi, I’ve recently noticed that my bottom front teeth appear to have moved forward, protruding a little bit and the inside of my mouth seems different. I’m 52, is this common? If so, why? And can it be fixed? I’ve never had a Hollywood smile and I’d like to have something done. Can anything be done and why is it happening? I have a small lower jaw. The top and bottom wisdom teeth on the left side were removed 26 years ago.
Thanks.

Can Dentures be Produced using iTero?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Q.

Can full dentures be produced using the iTero for someone who already has a full set of dentures? All I see on various websites is the Wand being used on patients who have their own natural teeth. I am desperate for new dentures but can’t face having the traditional method of impressions as last time I had them done I almost choked and it has put me off completely. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Are There Any Gum Reconstruction Options to Restore Smile Aesthetics?

Thursday, August 27th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have advanced periodontitis with some bone loss and gum recession. I’ve been reading a lot about LANAP. I’m petrified of scaling and planing and of losing more gum line. My first question is how do I find a certified dentist who performs LANAP? I live in Oxfordshire but can travel, I cannot risk being “ripped off” in any way and want to do my research well. Secondly are there options for bone / gum reconstruction to restore the aesthetics of my smile that I now hide away? Thank you for any advice. Kindest regards.

Can I Use Regenerate Toothpaste on a Long-Term Basis?

Thursday, August 27th, 2015
Q.

Dear Doctor Mark, I tried using a new toothpaste called Regenerate as I tend to drink too many acidic drinks and was surprised to find it cured my sensitivity. Is it ok to use the toothpaste long term or should you alternate it with normal toothpaste? Also are there any issues about using mouthwash when using this product, i.e. will it interact or undo some of the benefit? Sorry if my questions are not very complex, but my dentist did not know. Thank you.

Should I Use an Oral Irrigation System?

Thursday, August 20th, 2015
Q.

I have had several crowns in for 7 years, and am in the process of having 3 implants where I had a bridge.

I am always having to use inter-dental brushes and floss, but don’t seem to be able to get all the debris out from between my teeth. My gums are healthy but have started to shrink away from my crowns a little. Would it be safe to use one of the recommended oral irrigation systems, or would it make my gums recede more?

Can I Get a Get a Gap Between Two Teeth Filled with Gold?

Monday, June 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I’ve got a ceramic crown fitted on the tooth next to my 2 front teeth. My gums have started to recede so it’s black above it, also there’s a gap between my second and third teeth, would I be able to have a gold frame and gold to fill the gap between the two teeth? It’s starting to give me a complex about smiling! Also my dentist doesn’t seem to be interested when I mention it to him so I hope you can help please.

What is the Best Material for Crowns?

Monday, May 11th, 2015
Q.

Dear Mr.Hughes, I broke an upper back tooth on Thursday night, which literally split across. I stuck it together with a repair kit from the chemist and went to see a new dentist (my dentist of many years has sadly retired) the following day hoping he would bond it back together.
Unfortunately he said he couldn’t, so recommended I have the loose piece pulled out and plan to come back for a crown.
I have to say I was rather disappointed.
My question is, was this really necessary?
And also what is the best material for crowns? I would prefer white rather then metal.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards.

Should I Be Worried About My Toothache?

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015
Q.

For a while now I have been biting my back tooth on the left hand side at the back. I went to the dentist and he said he couldn’t see anything wrong with it. I tried very hard to stop biting down as I hear a clicking noise. Tonight I bit down and I felt a sharp pain. Since then my tooth kind of aches a bit and was sensitive to touch. Should I be worried? I have a fear of the dentist. Will this stop if I leave it alone? Thank you.

What Can I Do About My Gum Recession?

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015
Q.

I have gum recession on one front tooth on the bottom and it’s quite deep. I don’t feel any sensitivity usually. I had a check up 3 weeks ago and my dentist hasn’t mentioned anything regarding gum disease. They just said to ease off brushing that tooth very hard. I used to have a piercing there but I did take this out years ago so I don’t think this is what has caused this. I’m now worried about my other teeth heading this way, I think this one of my back upper teeth is now starting to recede slightly I’m also obviously worried about losing this tooth.

What can I do for this?

Thanks.

How Much Would a Gold Tooth Cost?

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’m on benefits and I would like a gold tooth on my front tooth. I would like an estimate of how much it will cost me, and I have got another problem as 1 of my teeth is pressed back, so I would like that covered with a gold tooth. So how will the procedure go, will I have to get that tooth pushed forward or will you be able to fit a gold cap in the gap? Please get back to me as I am in need ASAP. If it is not a gold tooth I wouldn’t mind a silver tooth but please get back to me. Thanks.
