Why Am I Still in Pain After Having a Tooth Removed?

Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Q.

I had my double tooth took out as it split in half. It had a root canal filling in it. the dentist removed that as well. This was 3 weeks ago. I am in terrible pain, so went back to the dentist. They said I had an infection. and put me on antibiotics for 5 days. I am still in agony all around that gum area. I can only eat on one side. I still get a lot of pain round that area. All round there is very sensitive. What should I do?

I Have Just Had Braces But My Teeth Are Barely Visible When I Smile. Who Should I Speak To For This?

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. First of all I am not who to contact about my problem; a maxillofacial surgeon, cosmetic dentist, my orthodontist, a facial plastic surgeon or
a combination of both. I just had my braces removed and I now have clear retainers.
Before I had braces two of my upper teeth were extracted. The problem is when I talk or smile my teeth are not visible
vertically and horizontally. I have to force my smile to see my teeth which looks unnatural. My nose droops downward, and looks
out of proportion when I smile, so I may need a rhinoplasty. I can provide pictures if needed. Thanks.

My Tooth Has Gone And Broke In Two. My Dentist Wanted To Pull It. What Else Can Be Done That Is Relatively Inexpensive?

Monday, February 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a problem I would like help with. I have a tooth that gone and broke in two. My dentist was going to pull it, I said no thanks, is there something you can do? He did not pull it and it had decayed when this happened, instead of him pulling the whole tooth he fixed it to where it looks like a real tooth, but told me if I ever have problems with it he would have to pull it out completely. Is there a procedure that can be done without pulling it or getting an implant and it being inexpensive? I have an extreme sideways bite and I have fillings in every tooth almost and I have had them for over 20 years. Sometimes when I eat something they hurt, so what do I need to do?

Is It Safe To Place A 5-Year-Old Child Under General Anaesthetic?

Friday, July 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I am writing for the problem of my 5-year old daughter’s tooth. Her tooth is decayed and had an infection over this tooth (swelling). I took her to the local dentist. She gave an injection there and immediately started to pull off the tooth. My daughter was screaming with the pain and I had to ask the dentist to stop it. It seemed to me that the anaesthetic didn’t work because she was screaming too much. Anyway, the dentist gave an antibiotic and my daughter took it almost a week. The swelling decreased then, but did not completely go away. I took her to another dentist because my daughter was not ready to go to the first one. I told the new dentist about the history. My daughter was scared on seeing the dentist and was not ready to open the mouth for a while. The dentist said he don’t want to take the tooth and it is better to go to a clinic where they will do general anesthesia and will extract the tooth.
My question: is it safe to do this in a 5-year old child? Is there any risk? Would it give any problem in future (affecting the development of brain)?
I would be very grateful for the answer. Thank you very much in advance.

Why Won’t My Dentist Remove My Loose Teeth?

Friday, July 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi Mark. I have very loose 2 front teeth which have been nearly knocked out so I now haven’t got no nerves going through them which makes them look sort of see through. I think they’re dying. I asked my dentist to remove them but she refused (she said they’re fine but I can see and feel how loose they have become) so I am now looking for veneers now if you can help me please as I don’t think I could cope with a palate denture. I feel that veneers are the best solution for me and I think I’ve got all of my other teeth really white just these 2 at the front, which are letting me down now and depressing me so bad. I’m not sure how I can go about getting them fixed and I’m not sure who I should visit about this now as I feel my dentist doesn’t really care that much about helping me, especially when I went about my loose teeth.

I Regret Having My Original Teeth Out, What Are My Options Now?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

I am a class-III under-bite patient. I have undergone a procedure recently during which my 4 upper front teeth were removed recently and doctor gave me Zirconia bridge. This was placed onto my two canines by grinding it right down. My dentist suggested to procedure so I thought it would all work out absolutely fine. At first it seemed okay however later I realised that I have done biggest mistake in my life by removing my original teeth.I realise that I cannot get these back so have tried to gain advice.  I have consulted many other doctors who are suggesting to go for Jaw surgery for correction and then they can place two implants to support new teeth.

Kindly advise me to take the decision please.

Can My Teeth Be Brought Forward Using Implants

Friday, January 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor Safeer Butt, I had 4 teeth extracted and my front teeth pushed back when I was younger to correct an overbite that I had. However, unfortunately, ,my teeth have been pushed too far back in my mouth and now they are hardly visible when I smile. In addition to this, the position of my teeth has made my profile not the best looking as it makes my chin way more prominent. Its really upsetting and effecting my self confidence. My question is,  is it possible to reverse this and bring the teeth forward using implants and pushing the teeth back forward. I have been to visit my orthodontis about bringing the teeth forward about10 years ago who just said it was not possible to move the teeth back.

Thank you
