What is the Most Affordable Cosmetic Treatment for Dental Fluorosis?

July 20th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have severe – and I mean severe – fluorosis which I find a liability on my social and economic life. What is the most affordable cosmetic treatment for dental fluorosis? I was born abroad in a Florine heavy part of Africa where almost everybody had the problem. All my teeth are discoloured (brown and dark brown). I am not looking for an expensive cosmetic solution, what I need is a less invasive and affordable solution. Thank you.

Can You Get Dental Implants on the NHS?

July 3rd, 2015
Q.

Hi, I’m 30 years old and my teeth are bad through my own fault. I’m really embarrassed and ashamed of my teeth and when I talk to someone I can see them looking at my teeth and some of my friends laugh at me and call me names so I don’t really socialise with anyone, and that’s including my family. I sit in my bedroom all the time watching TV so I dont get laughed at. I really need implants, I dont just want them to have nice teeth I want them so I can get the confidence to go outside and talk to people without feeling embarrassed and ashamed. How much cosmetic treatment can you get for £50 month? Can you get implants on NHS?

How Can I Get NHS Treatment for Gum Disease?

July 3rd, 2015
Q.

Before Christmas last year my dentist told me I had quite bad gum disease. In February this year my gums started bleeding and I used Corsodyl mouthwash (I had used it before) but my mouth and gums came up in ulcers and my gums were inflamed. My dentist couldn’t give me an appointment, I was in so much pain that I went to see another dental surgery who saw me there and then. The new dentist said I had an allergic reaction to the mouthwash. They discovered I have been grinding my teeth. Since then the ulcers have gone but now my gums have receded to the point that it feels like I have almost none, they hurt all the time, my teeth now hurt and I keep getting headaches. I saw the new dentists once a week for nearly 3 months and was sent to my GP for blood tests to check for underlying issues but it was clear. The new dentist said I need to see a periodontist – but they all charge more then I can afford. I’m a single parent on benefits and on NHS tax credit exemption. But I cannot find an NHS periodontist anywhere and I’m in constant pain. My GP referred me to a dental hospital but they do not offer the service I need. How can I get seen and treated via the NHS for this?

There’s a Space Above My Invisalign Aligner Surface. Will it Affect My Treatment?

July 3rd, 2015
Q.

I’m on Invisalign treatment now on aligner number 14 out of 48. I just discovered that my front tooth is slightly chipped, about less than 2 mm. I noticed that one of my front teeth has become smaller and checked the fitness of my aligner. There’s an obvious space above the surface. I don’t experience any pain whatsoever but I’m worried that this will this affect my treatment. If so, what do I need to be prepared for?

Are There Any Schools or Colleges That Provide Cheaper Teeth Whitening?

July 3rd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’ve always had discoloured fangs and also I smoked for quite some years. I no longer smoke now and would love to get my teeth professionally whitened. However, due to the cost of this it’s out of my budget. Is there a school or college you know of that I could volunteer at for tooth whitening, either for free or for a lot cheaper? I’m from Leicester but obviously don’t mind traveling to get this done.

How Easy Is It For A Dentist To Remove Denseal From A Temporary Tooth?

July 2nd, 2015
Q.

My question is: how easy is it for a dentist to remove Denseal from the enamel of a tooth fixed as a temporary repair for a chipped tooth? This is worrying me as I have an appointment next week.and like the other people, I am embarrassed about it.The repair covers the hole with a strip along the back of the tooth to stop it from falling out. It’s not meant as a permanent fix, just while I wait a month for my appointment. Thanks.

Can The NHS Replace My Missing Teeth with Implants?

July 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had my 3 front teeth smashed from my mouth in a violent assault. I am currently unemployed, will the NHS replace them with implants? Why they were removed still remains a mystery as the roots were all whole and secure just the fronts of the teeth were sheared off, so I need to know if I can have them replaced with implants before the bone starts to degenerate. They were removed a few years ago and I cannot stand to smile anymore as I had a gap for a few years but now my dentist sacrificed two other teeth to make a bridge. I can tell it won’t last longer than a year, two if I am lucky, they aren’t in very well and look like horse teeth with no attempt to match the teeth I have. It was a violent attack with a baseball bat that scarred me mentally as well as physically and now what the dentist has done as a professional care giver to me seems more like abuse. Please tell me if I can have them all replaced with implants on the NHS.

How Much Would a Full Smile Makeover Cost?

July 2nd, 2015
Q.

How much work and how much will it cost to get a full smile makeover? I’m a single parent of two with no confidence due to really bad teeth, it has now effected my face shape due to having no back top teeth. All my bottom teeth are crooked and there are too many. My front tooth is pushed forward due to the next tooth pushing it out and I have half a tooth filled badly with a composite filling as the tooth is decayed.

How Can I Overcome My Phobia to Get the Treatment I Need?

July 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello I am 52 and have several problem teeth, either with cavities or broken. I have already lost 3 teeth and have been told another will have to come out. My mouth is constantly in pain from rotting teeth and bad gums. The problem is though, I am scared to death of dentists, last time I had anaesthetic I had a mini stroke in the chair and ended up in hospital. I am thinking I would like a new set of teeth, preferably implants, but know while my gums are the way they are, this is becoming less of a possibility. In the end the problem is so big, I am just taking pain killers constantly and hiding from the problem. What should I do?

Why Have My Teeth Turned Yellow During Brace Treatment?

June 16th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had Six Month Smile braces fitted a month ago and my teeth have turned a yellow colour. I’m very cautious of the colour of the food I eat. I drink coffee through a straw and clean my teeth regularly. I have spent money on different types of cleaning brushes but to no avail. I use Sensodyne toothpaste and Oral B mouthwash. Friends have commented on them therefore I am very conscious of them. Is there anything I can do?
