Hello. I Would Like To Have Treatment For Hypermobile Lip. Could You Help Me Find Someone?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I hope you can help me Dr Hughes. I would like to have treatment for hypermobile lip. It is something that has bothered me for a long while.
When I smile or laugh, around 8mm of my gum is exposed. I asked my dentist but said he couldn’t really help as gum contouring would probably not reduce my gum enough. I’ve tried botox injections but they didn’t work either.
I’m having trouble trying to find a surgeon or someone who would perform this sort of treatment.
I am happy to travel to London, Birmingham, Manchester etc, Can you help?
Thank you for your time.

I Have An Extremely Small Mouth Which Depresses Me. Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Make My Mouth Bigger?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I’d really like to know if you can help me as I have an extremely small mouth. It is about 4.5-5cm wide when I relax it. This makes me extremely self-conscious all the time, and I really despise my face because of this. I cannot do a natural ‘toothy smile’ as it always looks way too forced, but even my closed mouth smile looks awfully small. Is there any kind of procedure or surgery that can be done to make my mouth bigger/wider, or anything I can wear or do? Thank you in advance.

Can I Become A Cosmetic Dentist?

Thursday, April 11th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, i’m a 17 year old student doing A levels..and believe it or not, i have always wanted to be dentist. Trouble is, though my GCSE’s qualify and i have alot of dental related work experience and hopefully* predicted A level grades, i am really struggling with getting the predicted A level grades. This means i may not be able to do dentistry at university. Well, i have 3 Plan B’s (which are starting to look like plan A’s) 1-get a degree in dental hygiene or therapy instead of dentistry 2-do an apprenticeship as a dental nurse 3-sit and sulk in a cave..But my true heart leads towards cosmetics. Is there any way i can become a cosmetic dentist if i opt for the hygiene and therapy degree rather than the dentistry degree?

Could you recommend a dentist who can treat my TMJ and Bruxism?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I’m looking for a dental practitioner/consultant who can treat my bruxism/tmj by botox injection. After 32 years of problems with firstly, misaligned teeth from a bad dentist, causing me to grind my teeth which caused problems which my then dentist tried over time to regain my bite with a little success but did solve the problem. Over the past 10 years the problem has achieved epic proportons despite ‘appliances’ supplied by Manchester dental hospital, no treatment by North Staffs hospital, told joints are not ‘bad enought’ to operate on, did not ask them to operate on them but that is the only treatment they provide for TMJ. Have now graduated to TMJ and Bruixism, and teeth are suffering despite a bio feedback device and mouth guards/splints. I need to stabilise my condition in order to both receive pain relief and in order that my teeth may be repaired before I have a chance to break them. The only way I can see forward is to paralyse the muscles to some extent so that repair work may be carried out to stabilise my teeth, which whilst unattractive do at least allow me to eat. So any idea who in this country or in Europe is both qualified to carry out this treatment and is prepared to do it?

My daughter needs specialist treatment, are you able to recommend anyone?

Thursday, July 28th, 2011
Q.

Hello,
Our 12 week old daughter was treated for tongue tie at Kings hospital last week (under her tongue), and we think she may also have a labial frenum under her top lip in at the front that is getting in the way of her flanging her top lip and latching on to breastfeed properly. However this is not treatable at Kings (nor anywhere on the NHS as I understand it). Also we are wondering if it is left untreated it may lead to her requiring orthodontic treatment later on. I have been told that if left this piece of skin gets thicker and is a bigger issue to remedy later on. Is this a surgery that you would recommend for this age? Is it a simple procedure? Can you give a guide as to cost? Thank you

I am having a lot of pain after my oral surgery. Is this a normal thing?

Monday, September 27th, 2010
Q.
I had a sinus lift 8 days ago… I am still have severe pain in my inner cheek area with less pain in the surgical area… I went back to the oral surgeon yesterday due to the cheek pain – he deadened my mouth (of course in the cheek area where all my pain is) with shots being so unbearable I was shaking… Long story short he saw no infection or any problems any where? He was very confused as to why I was still in such pain. Like I said the pain is 90% in my inner left cheek. Have u ever heard of this??,
