Why has one of my teeth stopped growing?

Friday, February 15th, 2013
Q.

Well, to pout the story to you, I’m twelve years old. My teeth have grown perfectly but this was until one stopped growing completely. What has happened to cause this? Is it bad for you if this problem remains? Hopefully it’s just taking time to develop. I haven’t asked anyone about whether or not this is a bad thing for my dental health. Will I be needing oral surgery to correct the problem and rectify my smile? I still have some baby teeth remaining my two front teeth came out fine. I think the tooth that is not growing is my eating tooth. Its on the top.On the left side it fell and is now growing. But my right side isn’t. Is it because my left side is taking the time to develop? Could you please advise me on this situation and tell me what steps I should take, Regards.

What Should I Do After My Tooth Is Removed?

Friday, January 18th, 2013
Q.

I will be extracting a root canal tooth which is a pre-molar on my upper right arch. The tooth directly in front of it is an implant. I’ve been told that my options for tooth replacement are limited because of the implant. It was suggested that I just leave a gap there. (I do not want to get another implant).
Could you please advise me of my options for filling in the gap after my extraction.
Thank you.

I Have A Chipped Tooth And Want It Repaired. How Much Do You Think It Will Cost?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr. Kalpesh Bohara, I have a chipped tooth (front tooth) and I wanted to have composite bonding. Please can you advise how much it would cost to repair a chipped tooth using this method. It is only chipped in one corner of the tooth. The tooth has been chipped for a long time but  and I did want it sorted when it happened however my teeth were crooked and I had to have braces put on. I have only just had my braces removed and was interested in getting my chipped tooth repairs years ago however my dentist had told me not to repair the chip now and advised me that I should get my teeth straightened first. And now my braces are off and my teeth are all straight. So the priority now is getting my chipped tooth repaired now and I shall have the smile I want. And advice you can offer will be helpful. I look forward to reading your response doctor. Thank you.

Q.

I have a questions about having several metal based crowns and the “Oral Galvanic Effect” caused by having too much metal in ones mouth. What are strong alternatives? It is a very long and painful story but I need 25 crowns! I know it seems outrageous but I have to have a full restoration because of sever TMJ Disorder. I have all temps now and i am afraid to put THAT much metal in my mouth. 400 words is a lot!
