Gum Disease Has Changed My Smile. What Can Be Done?

Friday, May 29th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have had gum disease and one of my front teeth has grown down long due to loss of bone in the gums. Some of my other teeth in the back of my gums have become loose and I have also lost a few. So what would my options be? I am becoming sad and don’t like to smile any more. My teeth use to bleed when I brushed them – they don’t any more and have not done for over a year now. I don’t like going to the dentist and I feel nervous, but my smile is so out of place. Kind regards.

Can A Crown be Placed on a Loose Tooth?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
Q.

Good afternoon. I cracked my tooth and the dentist pulled out the loose piece. The remaining tooth is somewhat loose. I have been trying to get him to put on a crown, since it has been exposed for two weeks and is hurting. He is telling me that you can’t put a crown on a loose tooth. However, my research indicates this is not true. Also, when is a root canal done? I have been to see him 3-4 times and he keeps changing his mind. One time I need a root canal the next time I don’t. Please advise.

I Have Wobbly Front Teeth, and am Afraid of the Dentist. What Should I Do?

Friday, December 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My front teeth wobble just a little bit, but on the top of one of them the tooth is a little bit black. I brush my teeth every day I am worried that I will loose my front teeth. I am already extremely paranoid about them and don’t smile at all. I am currently pregnant, and only 23, so I certainly don’t want to loose my teeth. Please can you help?. Also, my front teeth stick out a little. I need help, I have lost quiet a few of my back teeth and I’m really scared of the dentist. Thank you.

Can Anything Be Done To Increase The Appearance Of My Gums? I’m Extremely Paranoid About Smiling.

Friday, October 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have receding gums and it seems to be getting worse. I’m extremely paranoid about smiling and showing my teeth. So my question is: Can anything be done to increase the appearance of my gums as opposed to all of my teeth and what would I be looking at cost wise? I have already lost one of my back teeth through my gums being so weak and my dentist advises me that I will lose more teeth if I do not have something sorted. They have also advised that I will struggle to hold dentures as my gums are very small, I’m only 32 and would like to prevent my teeth from falling out anyway I can. Thank you.

I Have Lost 3 Teeth In The Last Few Years. What Options For Gum Disease Do I Have Other Than Regular Cleaning?

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I have gum disease and see my dentist every 3 months to have them cleaned. This is having very little effect and I currently have 2 loose teeth. I have already lost 3 in the last few years. What options do I have and what else can be done as no treatment other than the regular cleaning is being offered. I’m at my wits end and just want them all out! I’m worried that I will end up with no teeth. Please advise me. Thanks.

I Brush, Floss And Use Mouthwash Regularly But My Remaining Teeth Are Coming Loose. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I worry a lot over my teeth. I brush, floss and use mouthwash regularly. I have a denture on the top and I’ve a partial denture on the bottom set but some of the teeth that are left, I seem to be losing. I also have black gums at the top of bridge on the gums. I’m looking into giving up smoking but have started to cut down. What can I do? I’m scared the teeth I have will fall out. My bottom denture is fine on its my own but the two teeth in the middle that are becoming loose. Do you have any advice for me? Thank you.

I Had A Cyst And I May Be Left With A Gap After Surgery. Will The NHS Sort This Out As It’s A Result Of An Operation?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014
Q.

My NHS dentist noticed that a couple of my front teeth appeared to be coming loose so they did an X-ray and found something on the X-ray and referred me to hospital. The consultant at hospital thought it was a cyst and arranged for a biopsy. The results of the biopsy confirmed that it was a cyst – apparently the sort that has a one in three chance of coming back (it has drained a lot since the biopsy). So I have been referred somewhere else for an operation. I may lose a couple of teeth and/or need a plate in my jaw! If after all the surgery I am left with a gap in my front lower teeth will I have to pay to have something done myself with my dentist or would the NHS sort it out because it happened as the result of an operation. I am a bit unclear if I will just be left with a gap. Thank you for any advice.

My Front Tooth Fell Out And I Don’t Know What To Do? Should I Go Abroad?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. Please help me, I need your advice. My front tooth as fell out and so has my 2nd tooth to the left of my mouth. My dentist seems useless and I’m now extremely self conscious. I am considering going abroad to get help as I am going to Portugal next week. Even though I don’t have the cash to get my teeth done I’m willing to borrow. Some of my teeth are loose and I’m restricted to what I have to eat. I also can’t smile properly because of my horrible mouth and I’m embarrassed. Thank you for your time.

My Front Teeth Are Loose Through Infection. I Would Like To Explore The Possibility Of Implants. How Would I Go About Finding Someone?

Monday, June 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have two loose teeth together at the front bottom due to a previous infection. My dentist wants to make me a plate for this, I would like to explore having implants to replace them once I have had my original teeth removed, however I wondered how I would locate a cosmetic surgeon that would come highly recommended and give a quality service, without being at the top end of the price market? I’d like to hear from you and I hope you can help.

My Dad Has Developed Periodontal Disease Through Having Diabetes. Is There Something He Can Do Temporarily Until He Gets Implants?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have a question for you. My dad has diabetes (not because he is overweight or unhealthy) and has developed periodontal disease, he’s currently having treatment with a gum specialist and he has an appointment for a deep cleaning soon, but some of his teeth have fallen out and some are loose. Is there something that can be done temporarily like a bridge in order for him to have teeth until he has healthy enough gums to maybe get implants? He’s getting really paranoid, as his front tooth is loose and he is under a lot of stress through this.
