Can grinding my teeth may cause my temporary veneers to drop?

Thursday, October 15th, 2009
Q.
I currently have temporary veneers on. I have had them on four weeks as I needed some gum work completing. They have become very damaged and a couple have dropped off. Is this common or is it likely grinding my teeth may be causing this?

Is there any alternative to denture as I find it very painful?

Thursday, October 15th, 2009
Q.
I had cosmetic dentistry done many years ago, which included replacing my middle four front teeth (top) with crowns. One was knocked loose and subsquently I have had it removed as it was apparently so small that there was nothing for crown to hold on to. I am now using a temp denture, however a couple of things I would appreciate your advice on: 1) is there any alternative to temp denture, only I find it very painful after a while, and it looks very ugly with a thick pink plastic rim around the tooth, that does not match my gum and looks very prominent. 2) I have been diagnosed with gum disease around these crowns, and am desperately trying to work on this, but is teh denture now causing irritation to gums, as they not getting any better (p.s. gum disease appears to be around teh crowns only) I am very depressed about this situation and would give anything to be able to smile again, Many Thanks

Plz advice on the rules for NHS dentistry in regards of crowns

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009
Q.
Hello. I have a crown fitted in the front of my mouth. the gum line has receeded and the crown is now cracked (having been filled down to slim it by a dentist after It took too long to refit it when it dropped out and the other teeth had moved). it looks unsightly and the crown is partially shaven on one of the sides. My dentist says I would have to have a private crown to replace it, as its only a cosmetic problem. however, surely a less than complete crown is a little more than cosmetic. I have also developed a gum boil above the tooth now and I beleive this is becuase the slimmed down crown has allowed food to compact and enter the gum. where can I find a copy of the rules for NHS dentristy in regards to crowns? thank you

My mouth has developed burning stabbing sensation Plz advice

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009
Q.
Hi Justin – Over the last 5 weeks, I have had antibiotics and used mouthwash constantly to clear up an abscess. On Monday after hygenist treatment, my mouth has developed a burning, stabbing sensation in the gums and also nerve pains in the face. Although now on medication for Oral Thrush, the dentist does not think this is the case. Her feeling is either allergic reaction to mouthwash, or Burning Mouth Syndrome. What do you think?

Can I hv denture fitted Plz advice

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009
Q.
I have had a partial denture for 20years but my upper teeth have got progressivly worse, my left central incisor has twisted and has receeded the gum quite considerably and is very loose,and has left a large gap between the other central incisor, the next 3 teeth on left upper are missing, the final 3 molars have gum recession also and dont look good. The right central incisor is chipped with slight gum recession, the lateral and canine on the upper right seem to be slightly longer and have slight gum recession, the next 2 molar seem ok, mising the 1st molar and 2nd molar seems ok. Also my teeth do have gaps Would it be better to just have them all pulled and a denture fitted as about half are already missing or need to be pulled. . I am 40yo, your suggestions please.
