Does Tooth Enamel Grow Back?

Thursday, September 29th, 2016
Q.

I am now 22 years old. My right and bottom tooth (premolar) is decayed. It sometimes causes pain and bleeding. And it disturbs me most of the time when I’m trying to do my studies. I am thinking of removing it, but I don’t want to loose my tooth when I am too young. I have doubts about whether my tooth will grow or not if I remove it. My question is, at what age do teeth stop growing? Please, I need advice on how to take care of my tooth.
Thank you.

How Does a Dentist Remove a Tooth?

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016
Q.

Hello. I am terrified of the dentist and haven’t been for at least 20 years when I had a nerve removed, then the dentist packed it and I should have gone back the week after but I never did as there isn’t much tooth left. I’m scared of how they can grasp it to take it out. How will the dentist do this? It’s the same both sides of my mouth and I have problems eating and I never smile due to the gaps in my teeth.

How Would I Go About Having My Front Teeth Replaced?

Thursday, 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.

Should We Still Go Ahead with My Daughter’s Tooth Extractions?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

 My daughter aged 13 was just diagnosed with Bell’s palsy. She has braces and has a scheduled appointment to have two teeth extracted to make room for more. I am wondering if she should continue with the appointment and the extractions due to the Bell’s? Will extracting teeth make her Bell’s worse? Please help if you can. Sincerely a very worried mom. She has had a rough time as it is and I don’t want to make it worse for her, but I also don’t want to prolong the years of the braces that she has to wear. Your help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

What Can Be Done About the Gap of a Missing Tooth Whilst Waiting for an Implant?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016
Q.

I need to have left front tooth and one to the left removed due to bone loss (I am under Eastman’s and fanatical about hygiene). However, being a wimp I am struggling with the thought of having the gap – apart from temporary plate, can you suggest ways of coping in the interim of a possible implant, i.e. how do you look in the mirror? I know they need to come out and I am all for it but I can’t get over the distress over what a two teeth gap will look like – I am not vain, but distressed and do not want to talk funny.

I Have Had My Back Teeth Removed. Would A Valplast Denture Be A Suitable Option Or Do I Need Teeth To Hold It In Place?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I need your help or advice. I have had all my back teeth removed on the left side of my mouth and I had a partial denture fitted today, would I be able to have valpast denture though as I have no back teeth to hold it in place. I do not like the feeling of this bulky plastic in my mouth and I’m gagging when I try to talk. I would like to try this other flexible treatment but I am unsure if I need other teeth the same side to hold it in for me. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Want To Have Braces To Close The Gap In The Middle Of My Smile. Are Braces Safe?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I need to have a tooth extracted and cosmetic bonding on my teeth as I’ve got a tooth under my gum. Is this safe to remove, as I am a little scared? I need to have this treatment done because I have a gap in the middle tooth and I want braces to close the gap, I was advised to this before I put braces on my teeth, so please could you advise me on what to do? Is it safe and what can I expect in terms of price when having such an operation.
Thank you.

I’ve Been Advised By My Dentist To Extract A Tooth Due To Bone Loss. It Rarely Causes Discomfort. Should I Remove It?

Friday, October 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have a history of periodontal disease for which I am receiving regular hygienist treatment. The periodontist has advised extraction of a tooth (due to bone loss and advisory caution to the tooth next to it which could be compromised) This tooth did give pain months ago but now is virtually pain free. Because it rarely gives discomfort I now feel unsure. I have been told that exudate is coming from the gum, there is a sinus (I believe this is the right term) so the exudate is not trapped within. My Dentist sought additional information from the specialist and the advice is to proceed with extraction. The main symptom I have from the area sometimes is a feeling of ‘a warm tooth’ if that makes sense. If you have any thoughts you may have on this I would be grateful.

I’ve Seen Two Dentists And They Both Refused To Extract My Teeth. What Should I Do?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have been to 2 private dentists in the last 6 weeks. I have been disappointed with both decisions. I have 8 10 year old crowns. I have gaps and they are disgusting. I also have an overbite and receding gums. I have a partial denture and 8 natural teeth. My 2 canines are like dracula’s due to the receding gums. The first dentist they would remove the upper set of teeth but are not willing to remove the bottom set of teeth. They’ll insert an upper denture but it has to match the colour of my bottom teeth. I said, “if I’m paying you I would like all of my teeth removed please”. They refused. The 2nd dentist said, “I am sorry I am not willing to remove any of your teeth, they are still quite strong”. Even though a crown fell out of my mouth 6 weeks ago whilst eating. I was very disappointed and came out of the dentist disheartened. It has cost me a lot of money in X-rays and consultation fees. I still have these dreadful teeth that I have to live with and talk with. It is so embarrassing. If I went to a hairdressers and asked them to cut my teeth, they would do it. It’s shocking. What should I do?

I Have Just Had Braces But My Teeth Are Barely Visible When I Smile. Who Should I Speak To For This?

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. First of all I am not who to contact about my problem; a maxillofacial surgeon, cosmetic dentist, my orthodontist, a facial plastic surgeon or
a combination of both. I just had my braces removed and I now have clear retainers.
Before I had braces two of my upper teeth were extracted. The problem is when I talk or smile my teeth are not visible
vertically and horizontally. I have to force my smile to see my teeth which looks unnatural. My nose droops downward, and looks
out of proportion when I smile, so I may need a rhinoplasty. I can provide pictures if needed. Thanks.
