My Maryland Bridge Keeps Coming Loose But I’m Reluctant To Go Elsewhere As My Dentist Is Usually Fantastic. What Should I Do?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. I have had a Maryland bridge (1) wing only fitted recently, I visited the dentist the day after I had it in as the bridge came out, this was then re-bonded. This lasted 2 days before it again came loose, the bridge was again refitted. It’s now loose again. The dentist can’t understand what’s gone wrong? He’s used to another type of adhesive? I need to ring again tomorrow. What should I do? I’m fed up and I have sore teeth, with all the bonding being taken on/off.  He is normally a fantastic dentist? Thank you in advance.

I’ve Been Told I Have Good Bone Structure. Would I Be A Suitable Candidate For Dental Implants?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. For many years, I have hardly had any teeth on my top set, they are very worn away I have tried a set of over dentures a few years ago which didn’t work out for me. The dentist’s I’ve been too,(which is a few) have been concerned about my bite. After all the years I have been like this my bottom set are still quite good. I am told that I have a good bone structure and I was wondering if I would be a candidate to have implants fitted? Thank you for your time.

I Had A Chip On My Incisor And Each Repair Seems To Get Chipped Too. I Don’t Have Bruxism. Would A Crown Work For Me?

Friday, February 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’m a 35 year old male. I had a chip on my maxillary central incisor. It was first repaired by composite bonding. This only lasted a couple of days before it chipped as well. A week ago a veneer was on the NHS (not sure whether its a ceramic or porcelain veneer). I woke up this morning and it had chipped as well in the same location as my own incisor chipped initially.

My teeth are not completely aligned. When I close my mouth my upper teeth ends up slightly in front of my lower teeth. My central and lateral mandibular incisors are worn down. I don’t exhibit bruxism during the day, and don’t know if I have nocturnal bruxism.

I believe that just replacing the veneer with a new one will likely result in the new veneer breaking as well. Would a crown not be better suited?

My Overbite Is Causing My Jaw To Ache But I Can’t Afford Braces To Correct It. Is There Any Thing Else I Can Do?

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I’m looking for some advice. I’ve recently visited my local dentist because I had pain in my front teeth and my jaw aches often. The dentist said its because I have an “overbite”. Whenever my bottom teeth touch my front it causes pain. The roof of my mouth has also started being very tender when I touch it with my tongue. She said the only way to sort it out is to have braces; that will cost 1900+. I can’t afford this as I’m on benefits. What else could I do? Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve Had Different Types Of Veneers Fitted Over The Years Which Keep Falling Off. Why Is This Happening?

Monday, December 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello.
On my next to front tooth I had a porcelain veneer which only lasted five years. It fell off and I swallowed it! My dentist fitted a composite veneer on an emergency visit which lasted for only 2 years. That fell off and went down the sink. I then had another composite the next day as an emergency which is on now and is horrible. I follow a really good hygiene programme and have visited the dentist every 6 months since the age of 3. I am now 52. Why do they keep falling off? Whatever type I have? I am reluctant to have a high cost porcelain veneer fitted as the fear of losing it is probable. Thank you in anticipation.

I Have Now Changed My Mind About Getting Braces. Will I Still Be Eligible?

Monday, December 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have my first appointment with the orthodontists coming up in about 9 weeks. I went there last year and I was told I could get them but I said no, I didn’t want them. About 9 months later I changed my mind and asked my dentist to sign me up again (by the way I was 14 in April). He did just that and now we are at the present day where I am about to get my first appointment.

I wanted to ask you if you think I will get the chance to get them again. My two upper front teeth are overlapping by quite a bit and my two lower front teeth are too (not as much though – only about 1-2mm). I also don’t have a correct bite, when I bite down you can’t see my lower set of teeth because my upper set comes over them.

Thank you for reading this and please reply to me.

The Veneers I Had When I Was Younger Are Chipped, How Much Does It Cost To Renew Them?

Friday, October 25th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I would like to discuss my problem. I had 18 veneers done when I was 16, I am now 46 years old and although I have looked after my teeth they are receding, chipped a little, and my bite is certainly not the same. Please could you tell me how much this would cost to renew? And also, how long does the process take? Is their finance available as I don’t have enough cash up front as I had my teeth done on NHS as my teeth were black and unsightly? Is your clinic near the North West? Thank you in advance.

I’ve Been Told My Teeth Can’t Support Braces, So What Are My Other Options?

Friday, September 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I have already undergone the treatment for braces some four years back, but from the time the treatment was over, I noticed my teeth were starting to get protruded and thereby opening gaps. Now it seems to look how it appeared to look prior to the treatment. Yet my teeth have developed lots more cavities and do not have a lot of strength to bite anything very hard. Enough fillings have been put in from my childhood and some even more recently. I am 25 now. When I have approached several dentists they advise me not to go for braces again as my teeth are not in a condition. Could you kindly suggest what other options may be available? I hope to hear from you in the near future.
