Half Of My Top Set Of Teeth Are Broken. I Want To Smile In Photographs With My Family. Could I Pay For Dental Treatment On A Monthly Basis?

Friday, August 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I am 47 years old and I want to have a photograph taken with my family and smile, which I have not been able to do. I would like to know if I can pay on a monthly basis? My top teeth have 2 screws in them them and half of them are broken. I have been told by one dentist that one tooth is badly damaged and when it’s taken out may take up to three months to heal unless I can go private. Could you give me any advice on what treatments I might need? Thank you for your time.

I Had A Milk Tooth Pulled Recently And A Small White Spot Has Appeared Within The Gum. Could This Be An Abscess?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had a milk tooth pulled as it was loose and on the same day had a permanent bridge fitted (adhesive metal wing). It’s two days after the procedure and I have started to experience a pain whenever there is pressure, moreover, a small white painless spot has appeared within the gum above the artificial tooth. The pain is not that bad, more annoying. Do you think this could be bruising post insertion and extraction, or could it be the start of an abscess? It is now four days post procedure and I’d like some advice. Thank you for your time.

It’s Too Painful To Wear My Partial Denture. What Would It Cost To Have My Remaining Teeth Removed And Replaced With Dental Implants?

Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Moore. I have a big problem with my teeth, they hurt all the time. My dentist has X-rayed them and checked them and there is nothing wrong with them. He took the front top ones out and this relieved the pain for a while. I have a partial denture but I can’t wear it for longer than half an hour and I certainly can’t eat with it in. The few teeth I have left are now hurting again and I wondered what it would cost me to have them all removed and implants done, I am on disability benefits so I would need a payment plan, please can you help or advise me. Thank you.

I Get Sick From Wearing My Denture. Is There Any Other Treatment That Can Help Me?

Monday, August 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. The dentist advised me to have all my upper teeth removed as I was born with a cleft palette which was operated on as a baby. I can’t seem to wear the dentures they have given me as they irritate the roof of my mouth. Is there anything I can do on the NHS or is private my only option? I do work but being a single parent and only aged 49, I would struggle to go privately. I get violently sick whenever I wear my denture. I would appreciate any advice? Thank you.

My Dentist Has Told Me That My Tooth Is Damaging The Bone But Is Still Strong. Should I Have It Replaced Or Wait?

Friday, August 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I would like clarification on a dental issue I have. I have had problems with my top front tooth for nearly 30 years. I damaged it in my teens and had a root canal performed then. I have subsequently had an apicoectomy twice and repeated root canals from a specialist. I also have a reoccurring cyst in the gum above it. I experience no pain and the tooth is strong. Should I have it replaced now or wait? My current dentist says I should wait as the tooth is strong and I have no pain. He has advised me that it is damaging the bone but over a series of X-rays he feels this is not significant. What should I do? Thank you for your time.

My Gums Have Receded And Now My Front Bottom Teeth Are Wobbly. Do You Think I Have Gum Disease?

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. I think I have gum disease. My gums have receded and now my front bottom 2 teeth have become wobbly. One is more lose than the other. Will my teeth fall out? Or can anything be done as I’m only 18 and I’m really worried. I had braces for about 3 years or just under but the dentist never said anything and I’m really scared about losing my teeth. Will my dentist have to take my teeth out? I can’t walk around without teeth. Please help me, this has really bothered me. Thank you for your time.

Hello. My Veneers Are On Coming To Their End. Could I Get Dentures Instead? Would This Be A Better Solution?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve had veneers for over 8 years now and my dentist said they are coming to the end. They are on the top, my bottom ones are still real.

To be honest, I regret getting these veneers. Several have come off over the years, which has been distressing. I don’t want to have to spend so much money to replace them. I want to know if there is a cheaper alternative to replacing the veneers?

Dentures? Or something like that. Can I get false teeth to just sit on top of the old ones? I don’t mind if I have to take them out to eat. There is still some of the original enamel on all my top set of teeth, from where it was filed down to fit the veneers. Thanks.

Is There Any Way I Can Reverse The Gum Disease Process? I Have Bone Recession At The Back Of My Mouth.

Monday, July 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I help you can help me, I have been told by my periodontist that I have the second stage of gum disease and need to have 6 molar teeth extracted, of which, one is loose. There is also bone recession at the back of my mouth.
I would like to know if there is any way that my teeth can be saved by closing the pockets or reattaching the gums to the teeth, or by putting some sort of antibacterial gel around the teeth to reverse the process. Is this possible? Thank you for your time.

I Have A Grinding Problem With My Molar. My Dentist Has Advised My To Have It Extracted But I Would Like To Know A Different Solution?

Friday, July 25th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes, I am 47 years old now. I have a chewing or grinding problem with my right 3rd molar. I have pain and sensitivity but no swelling or redness. My dentist advised me to go for extraction as there is grade 2 mobility. Do I really need to have extraction when there is no swelling. Kindly guide me? I am not diabetic or hypertensive.I got flap surgery done 5 years back and till now I have maintained them with proper care. For 6 months now this 3rd molar is not co-operating and it hurts to bite food. Do you know of any other treatment which could help me?

My Son’s Dentist Told Him He Would Need To Have Teeth Extracted To Have Braces. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My son is 14 years old. He had some protrusion in his front upper teeth. Last year I consulted our dentist for correcting the fault and they suggested that in order to do this they would need to remove one front upper tooth on either side and create a gap for the protruding teeth to be corrected. But I worry this could affect his confidence and possibly his eyes. Is this possible? Could you please suggest to me the right method of correcting the teeth which protrude, keeping my son’s age in mind? Thanking you.
