I Am Nervous About Going To The Dentist As I Have Gum Disease And I Fear What Will Happen In A Case Like Mine?

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013
Q.

I suffer with gum disease and now have what feels like a sizeable gap in my two main front teeth at the top.

I have been told my only option is to have the top four teeth removed and a denture fitted. I am reluctant to do this as I feel it is quite drastic and once done there is no going back!

I have been told a permanent fixture of new teeth is not an option due to the gum desease.

I am incredibly nervous at going to the dentist, fear the pain and also being judged for allowing my teeth to get this bad.

Would a cosmetic dentist consider composite bonding in a case like mine?

Many thanks.

I Am A Diabetic And My Dentist Tells Me My Teeth Are Loose Because Of This. What Can I Do?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I am a Diabetic and I have 3 loose teeth can I have dental implants I receive Pension credit. I cannot get on with pallets, after my past experiences I find it very difficult to speak, I have been told being a diabetic is causing this problem. Can you help me with this? My own dentist has said he cannot do this as I have a gap in the front of my mouth and I am lisping all the time which is very embarrassing. I also sometimes find it difficult eating. Thank you for any advice you can offer me regarding this matter.

I’d Like To Know Of Any Other Material That Dentures Can Be Made From. My Plastic Denture Makes Me Gag.

Monday, November 18th, 2013
Q.

Hi I have really bad stage of gum disease and I just can’t bring myself to go to the dentist to have them removed the thought of false teeth worries the life out of me I’m not sure how I would get on with them, I already have a partial denture which I have had for three years and have never got used to it, as soon as I put them in my mouth I just gag. I have tried sucking sweets, breathing in and out slowly but I just really start to panic. The hard plastic just feels horrible, Is there any false teeth that’s made from other material to plastic. Also what price do they range from and how do I find a really good dentist I live in my area?

I’m Worried By My Worn Down Teeth, My Dentist Doesn’t Think Crowns Are Suitable. What Can I Do?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Q.

My upper back teeth are worn down and I’ve never had crowns fitted.  My dentist won’t address my concerns and said to leave
them as they are. I’m 43 years
old. My lower teeth are
capped and I have a denture on the other side. The advice given is to leave them for another year. I think the lack of length of the teeth
on both upper back set will be too short to address with crowns.
Due to immune problems with my health for many years and allergies
to foods, my teeth have suffered as
a result. I look forward to receiving your advice.

I Have A Dull Toothache Due To Bone Loss, Could The Dentist Remove The Nerve Instead Of Extracting The Tooth?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. The question I’d like to put forward relates to having toothache due to bone loss which is caused by gum disease in my back molar. Can my dentist cure this by removing the nerve? She says my only option is to remove the tooth. She has already replaced the filling and the pain is still there. Not excruciating pain though and it is normally okay after one paracetamol but still a dumb pain never the less. I have scaling done to prevent the gum disease roughly once a month. The tooth is also very sensitive to hot and cold drinks and foods. Thank you for your reply in advance.

Hi Dr, I Have Bad Toothache Which Is Throbbing, I’ve Read That My Tooth Might Be Pulled, Will I Be Able To Replace It?

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie. I have a couple of problems I need to discuss. I have had some bad toothache on the left side and it is really hurting, throbbing, I get swollen glands and the pain also effects the left side of my face and my ear also hurts and the tooth is also decayed so it might be an abscessed tooth. When I brush my teeth, it always bleeds sometimes a lot of. I also have poor dental hygiene.

I have read online that the tooth is most likely pulled out – Can I replace the tooth ? How do I get rid of the pain? I really need some help with this.

I Want To Know If Implants Are The Sensible Choice After Suffering From Gum Disease?

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Moore. My problem is that I had quite aggressive gum disease recently but I’m now quite stable. The four front top and bottom teeth were badly affected.

I am wondering whether to extract these and get implants sooner rather than later? They would definitely look better but I don’t know if this is really the sensible choice – what should I consider?

I don’t know whether to seek cosmetic treatment first but think I would be happier with ” new teeth”. I am currently very good with oral hygiene and know I’d look after my implants if I got them fitted. Thank you.

My Gums Have Receded Due To Medium Level Gum Disease – What Treatment Should I Undertake?

Thursday, August 29th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Doctor. I need to tell you that I currently have medium level gum disease at the moment and my gums have receded quite a bit and I also have many gaps in my teeth with my front two teeth protruding quite a bit – what would be the best way for me to achieve a straight smile? Would the treatment be braces, veneers or dental implants? Is a straight smile even possible with implants, or will the replacement teeth look the same as the ones I currently have? Are veneers a bad option for receding gums? And what would be the best way to fix protruding front teeth/gum area? Thank you.

I Suffer From Bad Breath, Despite Regularly Brushing My Teeth. What Treatments Are Available To Combat This Problem?

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello Andrew,

I have been suffering from bad breath for many years and now realise that I need to seek proffessional help in order to obtain a long term solution. To give you a brief idea of my problem, I brush my teeth at least twice a day and in the way in which my dentist advises. I also regularly clean my tongue and use mouthwash, but within one hour of my routine, to maintain oral hygeine, I can guarantee that the bad breath will be back. Although my gums are alot better than they used to be, I still believe that it is the gum disease, that my dentist tells me I have, that is the main cause of the problem. Can you advise me of any treatments available that I can undergo to remove this problem from my life.

Kind Regards

Am I Suffering From Bruxism? Or Gum Disease?

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. Unfortunately my gums are pretty sensitive and bleed pretty easy just by pushing on my teeth with my tounge, could that be from bruxism or is there some kind of gum disease? I suffer from panic disorder could that be an issue also? Iv never had gum problems before. Brush everyday so I know they should be pretty close to healthy. Just wanna make your its nothing to serious would flossing help? My teeth are not sensitive to hot or cold. I have no decaying teeth and they’re pretty healthy. I’m desperately looking for some help! Thank you so much.
