Do My Loose Teeth Really Need To Be Extracted?

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I was wondering whether you could help me – my mam has been told by her dentist that she has to have three of her front lower teeth removed as they are loose. My question is whether it is always the case that loose teeth have to be removed? I mean, these are her front teeth so this is quite significant news. I used to visit the same dentist and he told me that my two back lower teeth would have to be removed as they were too badly damaged to save following the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, however, when I visited another dentist for a second opinion I was told they could be saved with root canal treatment so you can understand my worry. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I Am A Nervous Patient And Have Severe Gum Disease, Can You Help Me?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi I suffer with severe gum disease and I have lost almost all my gum surrounding my 2 bottom teeth. I am also a very nervous patient and havent been to my dentist for 2 yrs as he doesnt understand. He has also said nothing can be done about my gums but ive heard of a procedure where u remove good gum and put it on the affected area. Ive been looking but cannot find a dentist where I live that deals with peridontal disease. Im really desperate as I dont want my teeth to fall out. When ive been to the dentist in the past ive been made to feel like I dont brush my teeth but they r brushed twice sometimes 3 times a day, I did used to smoke. Ive been suffering with this since I was 15 and im now 30.
I would b really grateful for some advice and guidance.
Thanks.

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013
Q.

im 24 and I have gum disease. My front teeth are really frustrating me, my teeth were perfectly fine and all of a sudden my gums became swollen and started to disappear. I find it really embarrassing. I used to have great teeth, white, all straight always smiling and now I hate to smile.
I am constantly sucking on my teeth and gums. I have always looked after my teeth, brushing, flossing, Listerine. And now im stuck. I would really like to have veneers done but I don’t know if we can have them done with gum disease. My dentist doesn’t particually give me any adivse apart from brush my teeth and floss. is there any specific treatment you can have done to prevent the gum disease?

My Gums Are Diseased And A Tooth Is Loose, Can I Get Veneers?

Monday, March 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi iv recently been told i have the start of gum disease and one of my front teeth is loose i have had root canal but dont know what the cause is, as im only 22years old my looks are very important to me and im worried now that my tooth may fall out. This is causing issues with my confidence and is affecting what used to be a very good social life so i really wish to get it sorted, so rather than have a false tooth fitted I would like a front set of veneers as these seem like the best looking option So my questions are Would that be possible? how much would that cost me? Could i get any information on veneers etc/ And where would my nearest clinic be for consultation? Many thanks

22 teeth are declining at an alarming rate.They are crooked, yellow, cavities, and have gum disease. Advise?

Friday, February 15th, 2013
Q.

Hi! I’m 22 years old and I feel like my teeth are declining at an alarming rate. I can’t afford the dentist since I moved and I have no insurance.
They are crooked, yellow, cavities, and the most annoying of all is the gum disease. I also grind my teeth 24/7.
The left side of my mouth doesn’t seem to have gum disease, but the right side where I grind my teeth the most is red, like a red outline around each tooth. The bottom fronts are the worst. The gums are receding and 2 of them seem to be loose. Which leads to my question.
While I wait to have the chance to get this smile I have been dreaming about since I was little, what can I do to prevent these teeth from falling out? The disease isn’t SUPER severe, but will they still fall out sooner than later?

As I have aged, I have suffered from painful clusters of mouth ulcers, what could be the cause of this?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor Patel, I’m 22 and I think that I might have a dental condition that I hope you can fix. Ever since I can remember I have suffered from mouth ulcers. When I was younger I didn’t used to get that many, maybe once every 4-5 months. But as I have gotten older, they have got worse. Once I get one, Its like they spread and I get at least another 4 around the area. They are incredibly painful and they take around 3-4 weeks to heal. I get around 3 weeks without one and then they come back. It’s so annoying and they’re so painful. Do you think there is anything that could be done to fix this, My teeth seem in good health to me but I’m sure there must be something else going on. Thank you.

How Can I Recover The Appearance Of My Teeth After Suffering Gum Disease?

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes
I have been told by my dentist i have gum disease and have had root planing treatment. I am 43 and before being told i had this disease i considered myself to have nice teeth no crowns caps , 2 filling etc and considered i had a good brushing routine, with regular visits to the dentist,
I am horrified that it has been missed by my dentist. I have bone loss and my gums have receded leaving gaps between my teeth. my front teeth have shifted and i am going to have a brace fitted to correct this. my lower 4 front teeth look horrendous due to recession would a gum graft correct this?. i cry most days because i no longer have a smile and also now suffer anxiety attacks .I need to have this corrected as i know i will never be happy until i do , I loved my smile.
I work in the beauty industry so you can imagine appearance is important . i do not think my dentist listens when i ask about the gaps and although i know now my gums are in good health as the probings are all 2s It is the appearance that makes me cry. please advise me on gum grafting and possible cost i am at my wits end.
many thanks for your time in reading this email.

My front tooth looks longer than the rest of my teeth, will braces fix this?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

I´m 52. After a periodontal treatment, my gums receded and one of my front teeth looks “longer” than the rest of my teeth, and it´s crooked, so there´s a gap between this tooth and the next. My guess is that I would need braces to straighten my front teeth, then I´ll have to find a way to align my gums, or maybe a veneer? What would you suggest? I don´t smile in pictures anymore 🙁
What treatment(s) would you recommend?
