I’ve Had Severe Pain In My Wisdom Tooth For Three Days But My Dentist’s Isn’t Open. What Can I Do?

Monday, December 2nd, 2013
Q.

I don’t know what to do Dr Hughes. I have had a severe pain in my wisdom tooth for 3 days now, it is making it very hard to get to sleep and its now keeping me awake at night. It’s more painful when trying to eat or drink anything and when eating my tooth keeps breaking away. I have tried painkillers and there not touching the pain. I noticed today that my tooth is growing through the gum but is breaking once it comes through the gum, Half of the tooth is missing and the other half still remains in the gum. I’m in agony and it’s giving me pain all the way down the right side of my face and teeth. What can I do as my dentist isn’t open?

Bone Is Protruding Through My Gums And I Need An Alveoplasty. Is It Really Necessary To Extract Healthy Teeth?

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013
Q.

I went to the dentist with pain in my lower left gum area. I assumed the pain was caused by my wisdom tooth coming through. I have not had my bottom wisdom teeth removed as I have never had any issues with them. My dentist discovered the pain wasn’t caused by my wisdom tooth but by bone protruding through my gums. My dentist recommended I have the Alveoplasty procedure done. I have bone protruding my gums in two separate areas. In one of the areas I have had a tooth extraction, however in the second area I still have my teeth. I have no cavities so I would like to know if prior to having the Alveoplasty procedure being done, is tooth extraction a must or can it be done without the removal of my teeth?

I’m Looking Into Getting Braces For My Top And Bottom Teeth. What Financial Options Can I Obtain To Achieve This?

Monday, November 4th, 2013
Q.

I’m looking into getting braces for my top and bottom sets of teeth. It’s something that I have been thinking about for a couple of years now and feel it will help me feel better in myself. The bottom set are the worst out of the pair due to my wisdom teeth coming through and pushing teeth out of position which has caused me a lot of pain in the past. I am on a low wage at the moment and would like my teeth fixed, is there any way to get them fixed through a finance plan? For example, pay monthly with no interest rate or any other ways, and also could you tell me if there is any highly rated dentists in the Nottingham/Derby area? Thanks.

I Think My Wisdom Tooth Is Coming Through But I Am Worried It Could Be Something Serious. Can You Help Me?

Monday, October 28th, 2013
Q.

Hello, right at the back of my mouth where my wisdom tooth would be there is a piece of gum that is inflamed like a little bubble.

It happened a few days ago but went down. Now it has come back again. It is only painful to push on though and is not causing me too much distress at the moment. I also have a filling on to tooth next to it which I’m not sure would make any difference. I’m also suffering with a cold at the minute so I’m unsure as to whether this could affect it either.
I’m assuming it might just be my wisdom teeth coming through as I am 24 years old but I’m worried it could be something serious.

Please help me with this!

Thanks.

I Am Nervous Around Dentists And Require Cosmetic Treatments, How Can You Help Me?

Friday, August 30th, 2013
Q.

I am a nervous patient and do not like going to the dentist. I always had six monthly check ups and once a year for many years. I have not been to the dentist for around two years now due to not having any money, loss of work etc. I need a gum graft in my lower tooth in the front. The gum started to recede around 5 years ago and has not been mentioned by the dentists I have visited. The dentists said that if it got worse it may need to be looked at. I have a lot of fillings but they have been good and given me no trouble and beside this I have been lucky with my teeth, now I am getting older I noticed a few problems. I have a loose wisdom tooth, not giving me any trouble but, I’m too worried to go to the dentist. Could this be done at the same time as a gum graft? Would I be able to be completely pull it out, if so how long would it take? I am frightened to let anyone touch the tooth because I do not want it to fall out. I would need to book somewhere for the night after treatment or can I get the train back? What is the cost? Would I be able to have it done in November and how many times would I need to come and see you after treatment?

Hello. Is My Proposed Treatment For Alveoloplasty Necessary? What Options For Sedation Do I Have?

Thursday, August 29th, 2013
Q.

Hello. My problem is that I have a proposed treatment plan that includes an alveoloplasty after the extraction of a wisdom tooth. It is impacted and decayed. I’m fifty years of age and I will need a crown on the tooth next to it. Is the alveoloplasty necessary? Insurance doesn’t pay anything for the alveoloplasty so I’m wondering why or if the procedure is needed? Also, what kind of sedation do you think I should get for the procedure? Insurance only pays for a local anaesthetic, I’m pretty nervous in the dentist’s chair so it is something I need to consider.

Thank you in advance for any response.

Will My Wisdom Teeth Close The Widening Gap Between My Front Teeth?

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
Q.

I have a gap between my top front two teeth, over the past years I have noticed that it has increased. I am worried that it may carry on increasing and widen the gap. I do not like it at all and it’s worrying me as I’m noticing myself becoming less confident in social situations which is a big no-no as I love seeing friends. My wisdom teeth has started coming out at the bottom but not the top. Am not sure if my wisdom teeth will decrease the gap or make it worse. However if I wanted to get it treated how much would it cost and which treatment would be best for me.
Thank you.

20 Years Ago I Had A Wisdom Tooth Out And Have Been Unable To Smile Ever Since, What Options Are There?

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013
Q.

20 years ago I had a problem lower wisdom tooth extracted on the NHS in hospital. It was apparently a difficult extraction. Immediately after I had problems smiling and felt something wrong with the left hand side of my face. People told me my face had changed and I couldn’t smile properly on that side. It felt very knotted. I tried again and again to get someone to take it seriously but nobody in the dental profession would. Maybe I just couldn’t describe it properly to them. However reading the internet I now know what is wrong from other people who have suffered the same. It seems the gum on that side (where the tooth was extracted) is tightly attached to my cheek such that I can’t smile because it’s too tight. The problem has never gone away and still upsets me terribly. The people on the internet seem to have been offered treatment via a laser but that’s been soon after. It’s now 20 years in my case. Could a laser still be used to separate the cheek from the gum that covers where the tooth was extracted?
