I Had A New Bridge Put In And Whenever I Chew It Hurts. The Temporary One Worked Better. Can I Have It Changed Back?

Thursday, June 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I had a root canal done on the lower ring molar and they put the new bridge in. Now chewing and eating on the right side hurts, do you have any suggestions to stop the pain? I believe it’s in the molar where I had the root canal on. The bridge was too high and my dentist was grinding down on my upper bridge and then on the bottom. I been back 3 times and it’s better now. I still feel pain in when I chew on that side and the temporary one seemed like it was a better bridge. Is there any way I could change it back? Thanks.

I Am Self Conscious About My Gold Tooth. Is There A More Natural Looking Alternative I can Replace It With?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew, I need your advice. I had a gold tooth put in one of my top back teeth when I was younger. I think this was because it was a chipped tooth or it could have been a cavity as I also had root canal treatment. I was told the gold tooth would be best as I didn’t have wisdom teeth which I do now. I am self conscious when I smile because you can still see it, is there a more natural looking alternative I can replace it with?

Thanks, it would be great to hear from you.

I Have Been Told That I Need A Specialist For My Curved Roots. Could My Regular Dentist Do This Instead?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I’ve been told that I need nerve root canal treatment as my roots are curved. I would need to see a specialist to correct this. Do you know if this is the correct way of going about something like this? I have no problems with my current dentist, he is very good and I wondered if he could do it instead. Do you know if this is possible? I hope you can help me with this, I’m extremely nervous. Thank you for your reply in advance.

I Feel A Throbbing Pain Ever Since My Crown Was Put Back In. Do You Have Any Idea Of What The Problem Might Be?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’d like your help and advice if it’s not too much bother. My front crown, which is about 8 years old, it fell out and my dentist stuck it back in. From then it hasn’t felt quite right. I am having a throbbing pain in it. Is the nerve still alive when you have a crown put? I am also getting root canal treatment on three molars not had them crowned yet but this hasn’t given me a lot of pain just the normal, after this type of treatment. All the pain is in my front crown. Do you have any idea of what the problem might be? Thank you for your time.

I’ve Had Two Root Canals And I Still Have And Infection. What Would Be Your Opinion On This?

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I’ve been back for my 2nd root canal treatment as my dentist did not remove all of the abscess the 1st time. My problem is that I have a very large soft lump on the roof of my mouth that my dentist said I should keep poking just in case any infection is left but I’m finding that is is very sensitive. When I do this I cannot see it going down so I am now at my wits end as a 3rd course of treatment fills me with dread. I’m due do go back in 10 days for my dentist for a check over. I would just like your opinion on this? Thank you for your time.

I Have 9 Teeth Extracted. Would There Be Some Kind Of Payment Plan Available To Have Implants?

Friday, May 2nd, 2014
Q.

I am having surgery done this soon. I’m having all the back teeth have been removed. I only have 11 bottom teeth and have had root canal treatment on 6. I know eventually these will have to be taken out at some point. I have looked after my teeth but right from the age of 5. I was always having work done. I went into hospital at 21 and had an operation on my upper gum resulting to gum disease and this left me absolutely horrified with the result. More treatment was needed resulting to crowns which kept falling out. My last dentist left the practice and I felt let down as he helped build my confidence up but now I am really scared of the what might happen. The only option on NHS is a full denture plate. I am very nervous and worried about this as the feed back I’ve heard about dentures I would like to have implants instead. Would I be able to get them on some sort of payment plan?

Dear Dr Moore, After Visiting My Dentist For A Filling, I’ve Experienced Sensitivity. What Should I Do?

Friday, April 25th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr. Moore,

After visiting the dentist for re-filling of one of my molars which contains a rather big hole, I have been experiencing very sensitive dentine for more than 3 months. Whenever I eat hot and cold stuff, it hurts badly. I phone the dentist, he suggested me to buy a toothpaste with the brand called Sensodyne to take care of it. I did as he told me. But so far after 3 months, it improves only a little bit. I don’t want to go back to the previous dentist, because he may charge me a lot of money. What should I do? I hope you can help me. Thank you.

I’m Concerned That My Root Treatment Will Expose My Crowns. What Happens If I Don’t Have The Treatment?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I’d like your advice. I have always visited my NHS dentist regularly. Yet, after seeing a specialist, I have been told that I need root service debridement. I am very concerned about this. Will the treatment damage/expose my crowns and if I don’t have it, what other options do I have? And what will result be without the treatment? Also can I be sure that this will extend my teeth? I have 4 crowns at the top in the front and also at the bottom. Apparently the ones at the bottom are not so bad. I am concerned that the crowns at the top will look too much like crowns. I hope to hear from you. Thank you.

I Get Pain And Fever Ever Since I Had Root Canal Treatment. Is There Any Reason For This?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have a question I hope you can help me with. I had a root canal on one of my upper molars almost three years ago and I had a metal crown fitted. Now, I keep getting a severe cold, fever or a bad neck. I also get severe pain in that particular tooth for around one week and then the pain goes away by itself. I have been to the dentist for normal check-ups, they have X-rayed it, but they can not see anything wrong. Is there any reason for the pain in that particular tooth and do you know of any solution or remedy? Please help me! Thank you.

Hello Mark. I Don’t Know Whether To Have Root Canal Treatment Or Not. Can You Advise Me?

Friday, April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have a badly decayed molar in my mouth. It is on the right side of my mouth on top; second to the last. I went to my dentist last year in October. He filled the tooth as much as he can. However, as instructed only a temporary fix until my insurance “kicked” in. He said it was badly infected at the time. It also had a huge hole from a bad filling and a cavity. He told me to get a root canal and to put a cap on it, If I choose to pull it, not advised, then all my teeth would eventually shift. I don’t have a clue what to do, either pull it or have a root canal? I have read the pros and cons for root canals. Please advise. Financially I can’t afford a root canal.
