I Have Gaps Caused By Gum Disease. Please Could You Advise Me On What I Could Do To Fill These Gaps?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have two gaps in my teeth, one gap is on the bottom row and one gap is on the top row of teeth.
They aren’t that large and I do have adjacent teeth. Both gaps are close to the gum so you can see through it a bit and it makes me very nervous talking to people.
Also they are not from a missing tooth it was from gum disease. I had that which caused pockets to appear and then gaps. Please could you advise me on what I could do to fill the gaps?

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 Had My Braces Off For Nearly A Year And I’ve Noticed My Gums Have Receded Quite A Bit. Can You Help Me Please?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi. I go to the dentist regularly for my check up and even had braces for almost 3 years. I have had my braces off nearly a year and have noticed recently my gums have receded quite a lot. My front right tooth has become loose and is getting looser as the days go by and is causing me pain now but didn’t before I brushed my teeth 3 times a day, sometimes more because I panic my teeth are going to fall out. I think I have gum disease but the dentist have never said anything about having gum disease and I used to go the dentist every 3 months sometimes before every 3 months to have my braces tightened and nobody said anything. I also went the dentist 2 weeks ago and my dentist still didn’t say anything about my gums being so low I have booked my self back in with the dentist and I’m scared in case they take my teeth out as I’m only 18 can you help please?

My Gums Are Shrinking Due To An Inherited Condition. Is There Any Treatment That Can Enhance The Look Of My Teeth?

Friday, June 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Is there any treatment you know of that can enhance the look of your teeth if you have gum disease? My gums are shrinking due to an inherited condition. My teeth look okay but as time goes by it’s starting to look like there are holes between my teeth at the top near to the gum. I am 53 and have a huge fear of false dentures.
I have never smoked but I drink socially.
I clean my teeth twice a day
I visit a NHS dentist regularly for scaling and polishing. I would just like to my teeth to look healthy. Thanks.

Hello Dr Hughes. I require a periodontist and I am very interested to find a practice that uses laser LANAP technology for treatment. Periolase, Waterlase are names I have read about. Can you assist me in locating such treatment? I have some loose teeth and have been diagnosed with gum disease by my dental practice.
I live in West Sussex but am prepared to travel. I really hope to hear from you in the near future. Thank you.

I Have Recently Got Over Some Gum Problems. Would Bonding Help Me Fill The Gaps Left Behind?

Monday, February 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I’ve got an aesthetic problem due to periodontics. I’ve had a lot of gum treatment now I think it is starting to get better. I maintain a regular routine with my hygienist every 3 month for a good cleaning. My front teeth look longer than the other ones and there are gaps, my dentist’s advice to me is to put composite bonding resin to fill the gaps and file the longest one, but some dentists say that composite bonding is not really good and can affect the gums and when they file the tooth it can become more sensitive. What do you think?

I’m Scared I’ll Lose All My Teeth If My Gum Disease Spreads. Can You Help?

Monday, January 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I was just wondering if you could tell me is it true whether I have gum disease or not on my next to last tooth at the back and the top of my mouth is receding really badly and very painful. I’ve been told if I don’t get it out it will most probably spread along to my other teeth and I am really worried I don’t want to lose my teeth but really need to get it out it is so painful. Do you think it will spread to my other teeth? I hope you can give me some advice so I can fix this problem and hopefully prevent it from spreading. Thanks.

I Am Constantly Getting Gum Disease As I Have Gaps In My Teeth. Can The Gaps Be Filled In Any Way?

Friday, December 13th, 2013
Q.

I am constantly getting gum disease, I am 61 and visit the dentist regularly. I have gaps between nearly all of my teeth, and with age I suppose and fed up of picking food from my teeth every single time I eat food. Can you tell me if the gaps can be filled or what can be done as I need to sort this problem out? My dentist says that I cannot have the gaps filled, this problem is driving me mad. I hate going to the dentist for the hygienist to clean my teeth as it really hurts, my gums are very sore at the moment and this is due to gum disease yet again.

I Start Work Soon But I Can’t Have An Immediate Denture After My Extractions. Should I Get A Second Opinion?

Thursday, December 12th, 2013
Q.

I am dentist phobic – and I have gum disease – after visiting my dentist today for a scale and polish which I need to have done before I have extractions my dentist informed me that after I have my teeth removed I would have to wait 1 month before getting a denture. I asked regarding immediate dentures and he said no I would need to let it heal.  Should I go to another dentist for a 2nd opinion about the immediate denture? I start a new job within 2 weeks and will now probably have to turn the job down even though I was made redundant 6 months ago and it is a good job as I cannot do the job with no front teeth!
