How Do I Choose the Right Dentist?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

The outer side of my top tooth broke just days after an inlay was put in. It has been repaired with some filling, which I was told could last for some time before I had to make a decision what to do next. This filling on the outside is becoming loose just after a few days. The solution now I suppose is a crown. But how do I find a dentist to do the job right as I lost confidence in my present dentist?

What Would Be The Better Long Term Option For Me, A Full Crown Or An Half Crown/Cap?

Friday, March 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can help me with my enquiry. I have recently broken a third off of one of my top molars and have been given the option from my dentist to have a crown fitted or a half crown/cap. The half crown is a cheaper option but I am worried that it will not be as strong and last as long as a full crown. Do you have any information on this and what do you consider the best option.

I look forward to hearing your reply. Thank you.

Are white fillings suitable or recommended for large fillings?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

Hi,
I would like to have my amalgam fillings removed for the newer type ones. I have 3, 1 of them is small one is large in the center of the tooth and one is very large taking up most of the tooth. The two large ones are also maun chewing teeth. Are the newer white fillings strong enough for such a big hole or would I need to have teeth removed?
Also how can I be sure that the dentist I choose removes them in a safe manner?

Should I get legal recourse for dental treatments I am unhappy with?

Thursday, November 18th, 2010
Q.
Dear Dr Caplan, About 18 months ago I had two lower molars filled with Cerec inlays. One has been absolutely fine, but the other snapped in half after 7 months. My dentist replaced this with a second inlay, which snapped after 5 months. I suspected at that time that it indicated a problem with the inlay treatment, but rather than removing the inlay altogether and arranging a crown or onlay, my dentist chose to leave the greater portion of the inlay in situ and build a layered filling in the remaining cavity, free of charge. Shortly after this, I began to experience acute pain when the tooth came into contact with liquids, even of room temperature. I reported this to my dentist on an ongoing basis over 18 months, but he was unable to locate any obvious cause, even under x-ray, and attributed the pain to general sensitivity stemming from gum recession. I queried the integrity of the restorations repeatedly, and even other members of his practice hinted that if I was having such problems the restorations needed examination, but my dentist was unwilling to consider this option. In September, the tooth became extremely painful and infected and I was told I needed root canal treatment. The specialist I was referred to thought it better to try to clean and save the tooth, but that treatment appears to have been ineffective. Having paid £350 for the initial inlay, and a further £275 for the specialist’s “investigations”, I’m now facing root canal treatment at £600 and the cost of the subsequent crown. I’m really unhappy with the situation because I believe that with different treatment at an earlier stage, the death of the nerve could have been avoided. My dentist knows that I’m not convinced that this tooth has been treated correctly, but is suggesting that teeth can just die….. Should the dentist’s opinion always outweigh the patient’s opinion? How can I approach my dentist to secure treatment on a basis which we both consider fair? Should I simply change my dentist and have the work completed elsewhere? And finally, should I consider legal recourse to reclaim these costs if I can’t reach a compromise with my current dentist? It’s so difficult to challenge members of the medical profession, I really need some advice.,

Why did my tooth break off like that?

Friday, September 3rd, 2010
Q.
Hi, my 3rd from back (molar) tooth has broken during my last dinner when I chewed on a very hard piece of food. Only a small piece of my tooth came off and has not gone past my gum line, there is about 1 millimeter of tooth until the gum begins. There is no pain and it has previously (many years ago) had a filling. I obviously know i have to go the dentist, but I am just after maybe a reason for this happening and a rough guide of what will happen next. Thanks,

Is there such a thing as a half crown, because I’m not sure if my new crown is correct?

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010
Q.
Hi there, I just had a crown fitted (6 upper left!), when the dentist pushed it in I heard a crack!, I thought maybe it broke in half, but he did not say a thing about it. Then he applied some “cement” and my crown has a 45 degree “cemented” line across it??? I believed crown should cover the whole of the tooth. When I went back 3 days (for a filling, on the other side of my mouth) later and questioned him about it he said that it was because of the angle of the crown to fit the remaining tooth. So basically I would like to know if there is such things as “half” crown basically, also the base of that crown is not very “tooth shape”, but he told me that was fine… Could you enlight me regarding this matter. Thank you for your time and consideratin.,
