I Have A Severe Phobia Of Needles And I Am Very Nervous Before My Labial Frenectomy. Is There Anything That Can Be Done Other Than Injections?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can help me as I have a severe phobia of needles and I have bad hyperventilating attacks whenever I see them coming near me or when they are about to be used on me. I have to get a labial frenectomy and I have braces and I am panicking about the needles. I read some people have to get 4-5 injections just to be numbed up for the procedure and I am very VERY nervous about this because I don’t want needles if they don’t have to be used and I am adamant about it. Is there anything else? Thank you for your time.

If I Have Osseous Surgery Will My Teeth Become Loose And Brittle? I’m Terrified They Will. Is There Anything Else That Can Be Done?

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew, I was wondering whether you can tell me if it is true that teeth become loose and brittle after osseous surgery? I been told I may need this gum surgery and I am terrified about what the outcome will be with my mouth and teeth?
I have receding gums and spaces between my teeth, especially the top teeth, but otherwise I have good oral hygiene. What other options might be available for me to have instead of this gum surgery? Does it really have to be so drastic, this surgery? Please advise me on this. Thank you.

Is It Possible For A Tooth To Grow Inside The Palate?

Monday, January 13th, 2014
Q.

Is it possible for a tooth to grow inside the palate? When I was a kid a had a missing tooth (premolar) that caused a lot of disarrangement and spaces between my teeth. Now I’m 21 years old and the remaining premolar and one of my other molar are stuck together, and also there’s a hump in my palate, I think that’s the premolar that supposed to be growing through but I can’t be sure. I don’t know what to do as I don’t have enough money to go to the dentist, so please can you help me?

My New Dentures Don’t Fit As Well As My New Ones And Now I Look Goofy, How Can They Be Fixed?

Friday, October 25th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’ve been wearing a full top denture for about ten years I’ve just had a new set made and they are much longer than my old set and they also protrude slightly so I look a bit goofy. My dentist just said they would take a bit of getting used to, Is there anything that can be done about this please? Also from the side it looks like I’ve got a badly swollen lip and I can’t talk properly. My last set were made at the same practice and they were great, only my family know I wear dentures as they are so good. Now I look like the donkey out of Shrek. This can’t be right can it? Please help.

After Having Orthodontic Treatment, I Was Wondering How Long It Takes For Adult Teeth To Come Through?

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Shaffie, I’d like to mention that I had a first set of three teeth extracted on July 17th and another set of three extracted on August 13th. I had one baby tooth either side which were both taken out. Then on the 20th August I went to my orthodontic practice to have a fixed brace on my lower set of teeth and in about three months time I will be having a fixed brace on my upper set of teeth. The reason I never had a fixed brace on my upper set is that I have an adult tooth growing either side where the baby teeth were and I have to wait for them to come through enough to have a fixed brace on my upper set. So I was just wondering how long it would take for them two adult teeth to pierce through? Thanks, I hope you can help me out with this.

I’m Want To Know The Length Of Time It Takes For My Braces To Work Before I Go Back To School?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello, I received ceramic braces a few weeks ago. I’m very worried because before I had braces, my two front teeth were at the same level. Now, the right tooth has become longer than the left one. I have to go back to school in August and I’m concerned, I don’t want people to make fun of my teeth when I talk or open my mouth to smile. I want to know how much longer I have to wait for my two front teeth to become the same level? Thank you for your time and help you can advise me.

My Niece Is Studying Dentistry In Venezuela, And Is Looking For A Summer Course In England.

Monday, August 19th, 2013
Q.

Good morning. My niece is studying to become a dentist in Venezuela, she is 21 years of age. She is finishing her second year with excellent grades. We are looking for a summer course in England, related to her studies. Even though she lives in Venezuela she speaks English very well.
I would appreciate any of recommendations you can make about places or courses that she can do. Whether it be Universities, or clinics? She doesn’t need something particularly official, she just needs to reinforce her English in a course related to her career. She is also open to a subject related to dentistry, theory or practice and we hope that you recommend anything to us. Thank you very much.

Trying To Find a Cheap Price For Retainers Has Become Difficult- Is There a More Affordable Option?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Whilst searching the web for the best prices regarding retainers, I recently read in one of your posts that you quoted £350 for 3 sets of Vivera retainers. I’ve had Invisalign and now use Vivera retainers. What is problematic is that the dentist who is currently providing me treatment with is charging me £495 for a set of three. I am finding money extremely tight at the moment and was hoping of being able to get a cheaper option. Do you happen to know if there is any way I can order them through you instead? Would I need to change providers and do you know how I would go about that?

Can You Help Me With My 6th Form Project?

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013
Q.

Hello!

I am a sixth-form student and am currently studying for my A-levels. I’m hoping that one day I can become a cosmetic dentist like yourself! I was just wondering if it would it be possible for me to email you a list of questions for my Extended Project Qualification on Cosmetic Surgery as part of an email interview?

Here are some examples of the questions: 1. What inspired you to specialise in cosmetic dentistry? 2. Did you experience cases of low self-esteem from patients? 3. Have any patients ever expressed a loss of self-identity or self-perception post-surgery? 4. How would you measure self-identity? If you would rather I contacted you and asked them over the phone or through your personal e-mail then please let me know. Many thanks in advance.

I’m 22 And I Hate Smiling, Please Help!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013
Q.

hi i am 22 year old boy and have wanted to improve my smile for a long time, my friends says that i do not smile, especially in my pictures. Also I never smile, just full stop it makes me seem miserable………..i laugh lots and lots but rarely smile and my teeth are little irregular. What i mean by that is food particles can get easily sucked in my teeth and its difficult to push your brush in there. i want a smiley face and whenever i smile my teeth will show without any worry. I want to impress others with my smile because i feel like i haven’t done it before. Can you suggest for me what you think would be good? I don’t want to wear braces for a long period of time and i don’t have that much money either. please just give me some advice. anything at all! thank you so much dr.
