Could I Have Veneers on my Front Teeth?

Monday, October 17th, 2016
Q.

Will it be possible to have veneers for my front teeth? I have gum disease problem, lost bone in my jaw and have lost a few teeth so my dentist from the NHS made dentures on the top side of my jaw. It feels weird, I have speech problem and I feel so depressed and not confident. I asked him if at one stage I can have implant, but he said no because I lost bone in my jaw. I am unhappy. How much will it cost me? Thank you.

What Is Causing My Gums to Recede and Turn Blue?

Thursday, 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.

Can A Person with Epilepsy Have Dental Implants?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My dad is epileptic and we wanted to know if he can have the screw-in teeth? His teeth are very bad and he has gum disease and some teeth missing. He is very concerned about his teeth and his grandchildren always point it out to him. Is there anything that can be done? It is through no fault of his own as he brushes and flosses his teeth twice a day. It is really getting him down, there must be something that can be done surly?

How Can I Get NHS Treatment for Gum Disease?

Friday, July 3rd, 2015
Q.

Before Christmas last year my dentist told me I had quite bad gum disease. In February this year my gums started bleeding and I used Corsodyl mouthwash (I had used it before) but my mouth and gums came up in ulcers and my gums were inflamed. My dentist couldn’t give me an appointment, I was in so much pain that I went to see another dental surgery who saw me there and then. The new dentist said I had an allergic reaction to the mouthwash. They discovered I have been grinding my teeth. Since then the ulcers have gone but now my gums have receded to the point that it feels like I have almost none, they hurt all the time, my teeth now hurt and I keep getting headaches. I saw the new dentists once a week for nearly 3 months and was sent to my GP for blood tests to check for underlying issues but it was clear. The new dentist said I need to see a periodontist – but they all charge more then I can afford. I’m a single parent on benefits and on NHS tax credit exemption. But I cannot find an NHS periodontist anywhere and I’m in constant pain. My GP referred me to a dental hospital but they do not offer the service I need. How can I get seen and treated via the NHS for this?

Gum Disease Has Changed My Smile. What Can Be Done?

Friday, May 29th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have had gum disease and one of my front teeth has grown down long due to loss of bone in the gums. Some of my other teeth in the back of my gums have become loose and I have also lost a few. So what would my options be? I am becoming sad and don’t like to smile any more. My teeth use to bleed when I brushed them – they don’t any more and have not done for over a year now. I don’t like going to the dentist and I feel nervous, but my smile is so out of place. Kind regards.

How Can I Close a Gap Caused by Ulcerated Gingivitis?

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015
Q.

I have a gap in between my front two teeth due to ulcerated gingivitis, which has now cleared up. I’ve noticed that my gum has shrunk away from my teeth and sometimes they hurt when I bite crusty bread or an apple. One of my front teeth has moved slightly forward as well. I brush my teeth twice daily and use inter-dental brushes when cleaning my teeth, plus use a mouthwash that is designed to improve gum health.What would you advise to correct this gap?

What Should I Do About My Gingivitis?

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have severe gingivitis and it’s extremely painful. It flares up at least once a month, and I now have loose teeth but my dentist refuses to take my teeth out. I’ve had composite fillings along the gum line and the nerves were being affected. I keep my mouth and gums as clean as I can, gently brushing approximately five times a day and using Corsodyl mouthwash. My teeth are also crooked and stained, and the pain in my whole face is becoming unbearable, it is affecting my life in a big way. What can I do? Thank you.

Can Anything Be Done To Increase The Appearance Of My Gums? I’m Extremely Paranoid About Smiling.

Friday, October 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have receding gums and it seems to be getting worse. I’m extremely paranoid about smiling and showing my teeth. So my question is: Can anything be done to increase the appearance of my gums as opposed to all of my teeth and what would I be looking at cost wise? I have already lost one of my back teeth through my gums being so weak and my dentist advises me that I will lose more teeth if I do not have something sorted. They have also advised that I will struggle to hold dentures as my gums are very small, I’m only 32 and would like to prevent my teeth from falling out anyway I can. Thank you.

Hi Mark. I’ve Been Told I Have Gum Disease And My Teeth Are Falling Out One By One. Is There Any Way You Can Help Me?

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have visited a few dentists and they have all told me that I have gum disease. My teeth are falling out one by one. It is scary because I do not know how it came about and how to prevent it. They told me I have to get dentures because of bone loss as I cannot get implants. I am only 33 years old and having dentures at this age is terrifying! I don’t even know how it will affect my marriage as well. Is there any way you can help me? What is your best solution? Thank you for your time.

I Have Lost 3 Teeth In The Last Few Years. What Options For Gum Disease Do I Have Other Than Regular Cleaning?

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I have gum disease and see my dentist every 3 months to have them cleaned. This is having very little effect and I currently have 2 loose teeth. I have already lost 3 in the last few years. What options do I have and what else can be done as no treatment other than the regular cleaning is being offered. I’m at my wits end and just want them all out! I’m worried that I will end up with no teeth. Please advise me. Thanks.
