Do I Need A Softer Night Guard To Protect My Brand New Gorgeous Veneers?

Thursday, January 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Last year I had a hard acrylic night guard for my bottom set of teeth as I grind my teeth and recently I got my gorgeous upper veneers fitted.  My question is, should I continue to wear the hard mouth guard or get fitted for a softer one? I am concerned that my grinding against the hard plastic can wear down my new veneers.

I grind with my back teeth and not the front but it still worries me that the hard acrylic may harm my new teeth. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi, I Want Perfect Teeth, But I’ve Been Told I Need Surgery To Change The Shape Of My Jaw. Is This My Only Option?

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hi,
I’ve previously had orthodontic braces fitted three times on my top teeth and twice on bottom ones. This was due to wisdom teeth moving my teeth and also leaving a gap between my two front teeth. The last treatment I had managed to close the gap in between my front teeth and align all the teeth well. However, I was still left with a slight overbite of the front four teeth but was told this was simply the shape of my jaw and mouth and unless I had surgery that was all they could do.

I am now in my early thirties and went to a dentist where I’ve just moved and went for a local check-up. She suggested that I’d need X-rays to check roots of teeth to see whether they were strong enough for yet more braces. I’m really not sure what to do. Is it a bad idea to have braces fitted again? Could what she says about teeth shaping be true or should I just accept that I’ll never have completely perfect teeth due to my jaw shape? I’m really not sure what to do. Is it a bad idea to have braces fitted again?

The Gap In My Teeth Is Affecting My Life, What Can I Do?

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Hughes, My two front teeth are mismatched and larger than my other teeth, I also have a gap  in between them which seems around and an inch or so. My teeth have been like this for some time now an It’s making me very depressed. I feel it’s affecting my social life as I now have agoraphobia and do not leave the house for days and sometimes even weeks. My  lack of confidence when it comes to my smile has been a big contributing factor. I also lost my job few months ago due to confidence issues. At the moment I am  currently claiming benefits I am very depressed and I have been bullied about my teeth. I really need help to sort them out and would appreciate any help at all.  Thanks in advance.

Which Dental Implants Should I Choose To Replace My Missing Molars?

Friday, May 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have recently had an abscess which required antibiotics. Seems to have started from below a molar on my lower jaw where I had root canal done last year. I also have a missing molar on the opposite upper jaw and just want to get both sides sorted once and for good. My enquiry is into 2 implants and I have been advised to only go for specific brands and would like to know what you use and how much this might cost? I live in Brighton, East Sussex. I look forward to hearing from you.
