Is Gum Treatment Free for Under 16s?

July 22nd, 2016
Q.

Hi! I am 14 and have had braces to fix my teeth. I am now on night-time only retainers. I have 3 problems: 

1) My gum line is uneven.
2) I lost my first retainers and had to go without them for a while and though I asked to have my teeth straightened as they stuck out a little, I was advised by my orthodontist to ‘just leave it’ and now have retainers in the form of my goofier teeth with my wisdom teeth almost fully grown.
3) My front tooth has a little yellow stain from natural causes. 
What I want to know is, will the gum treatment be free for me? Will the stain be able to be removed?
Will I have to still pay for new retainers that fit over my wisdom teeth also?
Thank you.

Do I Need Specialist Treatment for Tooth Removal?

July 22nd, 2016
Q.

Hi, my teeth are in a terrible state. I think I need all of them out due to either being rotten or severe gum recession, where if they don’t get taken out they will fall out as my front bottom teeth are not meeting the gums now at the back. I have not been to the dentist for years and even when I was in agony with a rotten tooth I did not go and everything just got worse. Every time I try brushing my teeth the blood flows freely. I am very depressed about this and it just spirals by being ashamed about it.

I need specialist treatment for the removal of teeth, as well as gum recession dentures.

Please help.

Is There More To My Problem Than Tooth Grinding?

July 21st, 2016
Q.

I have had severe pain, like neuralgia, in my upper teeth and jaw for a while. The dentist says all X-rays are normal. There is no decay and no seen cracks. My pain is worsening. She said because it is both sides, I am grinding my teeth without realizing and need a mouth guard. I am quite skeptical about this and seek a second opinion.I am in pain all the time and frustrated when told there is nothing wrong with my teeth.

How Would I Go About Having My Front Teeth Replaced?

July 21st, 2016
Q.

Hi. I want to get my 2 front teeth taken out and fake ones put in. My 2 front teeth stick out, so I want them out and two false ones to replace them so they are straight. How much would I be looking at and how do I go about it? Could I get this done in one sitting? I hate my teeth and need them doing as soon as possible. Also, can you be put to sleep? Because don’t like the thought of being awake when getting my teeth pulled out. Thank you.

What Is Causing My Gums to Recede and Turn Blue?

June 16th, 2016
Q.

I am 65 years old. Recently I noticed that my gums are receding and also that my top left hand gums are turning blue. Is there anything I can do about this? It’s not painful. I visited my dentist and he says I should monitor it. If it gets worse then he will send me to a specialist. But I am concerned that it might turn into cancer. I did have crowns fitted quite awhile ago and they are slightly loose. Could that be causing this? Please advise. Thank you so much.

Is There an Affordable Way to Replace Ill-Fitting Dentures?

June 16th, 2016
Q.

I am on income support and the family I brought up, who I put first, and are now grown up. I feel it’s my time to take care of myself, however I have neglected myself. My teeth have worn me down with supporting my children and have taken a knock.
I so want my confidence back but I earn very little as the grandchildren take up most of my earnings.
Can you please recommend a way I can afford treatment without going into debt please? I have some false teeth and they are ill-fitting, although I have had them fitted through the national health service.
My dream is to feel free from taking my dentures out each night as it’s not a nice feeling. I would appreciate any information you can give me to make me smile with confidence. Kind regards.

Are My Health Conditions Due to My Dentures?

May 31st, 2016
Q.

My partial dentures are ground down badly – I grind my teeth. Can the metal and plastic make me sick? I have developed GERD and AFib recently. These conditions came upon me suddenly, along with a lot of tension. I feel run-down and tired all the time. How should I clean my partial dentures? My insurance won’t give me new partial dentures until next year. Do you think they might make an exception if they see how ground down they are?

How Much Would It Cost to Replace Teeth with a Bridge?

May 27th, 2016
Q.

How much would it cost to replace the four lower incisors with a bridge off the two lower canines?
I have an upper palate that the lower middle incisors hit when I bite. I have lost one of the incisors already and another is working loose. I have been informed that the bone is not strong enough for implants. Apparently the bone has receded and the wider incisors are not strong enough to support the bridge.

How Much Would a Temporary Snap-on-Smile Cost?

May 26th, 2016
Q.

Hi there. I am looking for a temporary snap-on-smile for my upper teeth, in particular whereby I only have 2 full teeth left in the front. The rest are stubs (5), including both incisors. I will eventually be going down the dental implant route therefore I don’t want to spend £100s or even £1000s on a cosmetic dental plan. Looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience! By the way, the pull-down gives me a list of 7 dental doctors and I’d like to chat/speak with one most knowledgeable on this subject…thanking you!

Can I Have My Own Bridge Put Back In?

May 20th, 2016
Q.

I have had a Maryland bridge since 1991/92. It has been fine until the last month or so. It started to become painful and uncomfortable for some reason and I could feel the metal at the bottom of the tooth it was attached to. I have always tried to keep the area flossed over the years and recently used the little brushes from the chemists, but there has been an area at the top/back which I have not been able access. Question 1) has the cement started to crumble?
Question 2) I would like to know, is it possible put my same bridge back? As its a perfect match.
